I stayed at Thongbay for 4 nights in December. It was really tranquil and felt very special, I had a bungalow overlooking the river which was well worth the extra expense. The staff were really friendly and hospitable and interested to talk and to organise expeditions for a very reasonable price. It is true that the hotel is some way...

Stayed in a river view triple and had a very nice stay. The breakfast was excellent and was delivered punctually every morning to our room. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is located only a few km from the center of town and has a regular shuttle into town. Alternatively it is about a 30 min walk,...

We stayed at Thongbay for three weeks--it was the base for our exploration of Northern Laos--and we were absolutely enchanted. The staff was remarkably accommodating, friendly and well informed, helping us with everything from getting online to recovering from a short bout of illness to organizing excursions in the jungle. We were always served with a smile. Our bungalow was...

Bungalows with river view have some more privicy, because other guest dont walk in front of the terrace. Very beautifull room and ensuite bathroom. Staff is very friendly and helpfull. Nothing is...

Everything in this place is beautiful. The staff is very friendly and joyful. The garden near the rooms is very quiet and peaceful. Free shuttle bus makes it near the city center. The breakfast was one of the best in our journey.

We chose well when we decided to stay at Thongbay. What a gorgeous and serene place it is - we thought we had arrived in heaven when we turned up, tired, from two days on the Mekong. The rooms are beautifully set out, every bit as lovely as in the photos, and the garden is lush, shady and cool. It...

Everything about Thongbay was peaceful and wonderful. The staff is very friendly and welcoming, the rooms are clean and cozy, and even the location was ideal - slightly outside the main town was nice for the quiet atmosphere but bikes are free and there are regular shuttles to and from time. Bfasts were our favorite - brought right to your...

Thong bay Guesthouse had very unique cabins, some overlooking the Kan River for an extra fee. Cabins were very nice with a beautiful ensuite. Be careful at night going down the steps to the bathroom. Cabins had balconies to which your morning breakfast was delivered, very delightful way to enjoy the beginning of the day. Grounds were beautifully maintained with...
