Getting me to leave a room before my scheduled time is something of an accomplishment. I've stayed in places with all kinds of problems before without issue. But the Mekong Charm guest house hit all of the sore spots to send me packing 3 days before my original departure date. The guest house is located along the Mekong river bank,...

The hotel is a beautiful hardwood building on the riverfront that may be enjoyed from the balconies or the veranda downstairs. Our room had a comfortable bed, a minibar, wi-fi, and a bathtub. The hardwood means the room can be dark, but that was fine for us as we got a really good night's sleep. It's a family owned establishment,...

I don't normally write reviews, but this place impressed me. The Mekong flows in front of the house. The house itself has an elegance, which seems to have been lost to us. And the people working there are interested and interesting. The cost of board is so low. You won't regret staying here.

Our room was fantastic value- large, clean and nicely furnished- especially for the price. The host was friendly and helpful. On our first night though, the power went out in our room, so the aircon stopped working and I had an awful sleep as it was so hot. In the morning they tried to fix it but it they had...

My girlfriend and I were planning on staying in Luang Prabang for just a couple nights and ended up staying 5 nights. This guesthouse is probably the main reason we decided to extend our stay. The value is unbelievable for the money, the location great ( out of the main overcrowded tourist spots in the LP peninsula) and our host...

I moved to this guesthouse after staying on the mainstreet for a couple of nights, nice but no views. The owner Takyeo was charming and spoke great English, making you feel very welcome. I had one of the downstairs back bedrooms which was large with a lovely bathroom, no view but that didn't matter as you could just sit on...

We spend here about 6 days, it was the gemstone of our journey in SA Asia. The place is nothing spetial, but the owners are the ones who make the place magical. Most of them have a very good english , and can help you with anything you need.

We have also travelled extensively in South East Asia every year and Luang Prabang and Mekong Guest House are wonderful, our favourite guest house and town and in fact I was very sad to leave.
