I think the pictures on this website are old. We stayed there in nov 2013 and everything was brandnew. Me and a friend got a huge room with two double beds and a massive bathroom for a few dollars. I think The company should upload new pictures cause it was absolutely very good. Owner also really friendly. We booked for...

The only positive things: nice location next to the river and quiet. The rest is a disaster: very dirty room (full of dust and spider nets) and no cleanig service during our staying 4 days; twice tried the owner to rip us off: with the laundry service and with the room price. In both cases asking for much more than...

We stayed here one night as Thony 1 House 1 was fully booked. Pretty much the entire street is owned by the same family so they referred us here. We stayed upstairs (not on the river) and paid 80,000 kip for a fan room. When we asked for towels and toilet paper we were told that we didn't get any...we...

I stayed here and had absolutely no problems. I hadn't booked ahead and just turned up, got a double room with fan for 80,000 kip. The room was clean and spacious as was the bathroom which also had a hot shower, the room i had wasn't on the river front so maybe that is the way to go. As for...

This is an overpriced, filthy place. We stayed in the supposedly "nice" room (number 2) with the riverviews. The bathroom was so dirty and old that we tried not to use it at all. The toilet was leaking and so the floor was covered in toilet water and swarming with mosquitos. The wifi doesn't reach the rooms and the weird...

We came to luang prabang and got to thony 1 guest house. the lady of the house tried to rip us off after the owner told us the room's price! The room was dirty and the lighting was terrible!

In principle this is a typical backpackers hostel with some sort of comfort. However, the service and the hosts make this a strange experience. You do not feel welcome overall. I had not booked the place in advance but went there accidentially. Already when entering I did not feel home. The first room offered to me was musty and pretty...

The best thing about this place is the views on to the river. We had a very big bedroom with a nice bed and airconditioning and enjoyed our time here, although it is very basic and not kept incredibly clean. The balcony downstairs isn't that great and there's nothing that outstanding about this place but its fair for the price...

The 20th of May 2012 I stayed with two other friends at Thony Guesthouse 1. We went out at the afternoon about 1430 and came back around 2100.

We chose this place as we could book on the Internet but I think we may have paid extra to do so. River view from our upstairs rom was lovely but no balcony so you have to stand to look out. There is a deck downstairs but the area is not especially inviting. It was also quite a trek back...

“If you have to go there, choose one of the rooms with a view of the river (although 2 of them are right next to the breakfast area and you can probably hear everybody talking) One of them is upstairs and slightly better.”
