I had a room with a balcony overlooking the lovely garden. The room itself was very comfortable, with a safe, TV, fridge, hot water. The staff were all...

We stayed at Villa Chitdara for four nights while exploring Luang Prabang. It is a nice, quiet location along one of the primary routes for the monks alms each morning. It is also only a short walk (as is most everything in LP) to Tourist Street, the Night Market and many of the good restaurants along the peninsula. Breakfast included...

The Hotel is close (5 mins) to the City Centre, main shops / restaurant, etc. Every morning at 5:30 you can join the ALM procession just stepping out from the hotel. Furthermore, the Manager Lady,...

We contacted this place based on a review and website. The owner said he didn't have availability on the first day but offered to put us up next door at Lao wooden house for the first night.
