We only stayed there one night, for which it was good. The location is convenient, you can easily walk to the night market and if you wish to lay your eyes on this more and more touristy spectacle, you can easily reach the procession of the monks at dawn. There is air conditioning in the rooms. Sheets were clean and...

This was one of my worst hotel experiences ever. Staff were rude. Rooms were dirty. And on top of this they charged us extra for the rooms even though they were booked at an agreed rate. This was just a terrible experience all over and would never wish this upon anyone

Hi, I stayed 11 days in this place and I can fully recommend it. My room was clean about 15 US Dollar a night- and the people are very helpful. They let me use their living room so I felt like at home.It is centrally located very good restaurants all nearby. When I come back I will stay here again..

I stayed in the dorm -- it was quiet, comfortable and cheap. Very centrally-located. The real value of this place, though, is that the owners are very kind and helpful. Before I stayed the night, I had my passport and all of my money stolen. Though unfortunately many local people in Luang Prabang were not at all nice to me...

Guesthouses in the city center of Luang Prabang can get expensive during the high season; while walking around i was quoted prices around 30 USD in quite average-looking places. The Salakphet Guest House offers private rooms with private bathroom, air conditioning, and TV for 100,000 kip (about $12 US). I believe they also have dorm beds but I don't know...

They have one dorm with 8 beds. It's clean, comfortabel and quiet. The bathroom is in the room,one bathroom. But there is nothing, no facilities besides your bed. the bathroom and free Wifi. There are also no windows, so it's good for sleeping, but that's it. Location is good, close to the nightmarket and some good restaurants.

This place promised to be quiet but it was ruined by the gleaming tile floors and the fact the owner's family use the space outside the rooms as their living space. I love children but not outside the door of a hotel room at 6.30am when I'm knackered from travelling a week down the Mekong. The rooms aren't very clean...
