This guesthouse is a good budget accomodation and bears everything you need. All rooms offer shared bathrooms with max 2 other rooms so it is ok. The bathrooms are not cleaned every day but ok. The location is excellent and quite. Unfortunately, the staff did not really care about us and there are days when you do not even see...

The guesthouse is a half wooden house, provides clean and basic room. I booked a triple bed room with shared bathroom via Agoda. For an average USD$6 per night per person, I am satified with what I pay and what I get. Please soften your voice and walk slowly if you are staying in this type of old house, for...

I give this place 3 stars as it was in a great location, 5 minutes walk from the night market with lovely cafes along the way. We had a private bedroom en suite that was very tidy. The staff were friendly (English wasn't great but we never expect that to be honest). The massive con for me was the bloody...

Booked accomodation here for 2 nights on booking.com to stay after the 2 day slow boat trip from Huay Xai. Was by far the cheapest option online and stated it was "hotel of the year 2015" so all of the boxes seemed to be ticked, €24 for 2 nights. First impression when we arrived was that we were intruding and...

When I arrived in a taxi (I never got a reply to my email asking about the free airport transfer) the reception told me that the dorm room was full, but they kindly put me into a private room for no extra charge. The room had a comfy bed and pillows, and the fan worked well so I didn't need...

Had three nights here. The old timber rooms and settings are quite nice . You're basically living with a family, so feels like you're in the way a bit, not much English spoken, depends who is around.Location is good, 50 meters from river, 3 minutes to main town, etc . Seems to be an army of baby cats in the...

I'll start with the positives. This guesthouse is quite well located only being a few minutes walk from the night market and Mount Phousy. The old woman who runs the place is very smiley and friendly. The shower was probably the best I've encountered in Laos and the breakfast portions were very generous, albeit you have to pay extra for...

The guesthouse is in a small, lovely and quiet alley. We were in a room upstairs, with double bed. The wooden terrace on the first floor was very charming with wood sculptures. The room was small but cool, so we didn't have to use the ceiling fan, perfect to escape to Luang Prabang's heat. Shower was basic with strong water...

“There are two buildings, one wooden which has shared bathrooms but lovely balconies. These rooms cost 100,000 kip. The other more modern building has the ensuite bathrooms. The more modern building I stayed in still had the gorgeous wooden floors etc. of the other wooden more traditional building.”
