We stayed for 2 nights. I wish it had been a week or two. The staff are so helpful and friendly. Rooms and breakfast great. Only slight negative is that the walls are pretty thin. The location was superb. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Villa Somphong is a nice lao styled hotel, located on the banks of the picturesque Namkhan river, at a very short walk of almost everything. I recommend the rooms on the upper level because of the fantastic view of the river. My room was clean and comfy. I have appreciated the firm bed, the nice furniture, the wooden floor, the...

No complaints. This was a good, no frills, hotel near the "action" in Luang Prabang. It is conveniently located near the convergence of the two rivers: Nam Khan and the Mekong. One very nice thing was its proximity to two really nice temples, one being the famous Wat Xieng Thong. The breakfast is good. The staff very nice. The front...

The staff - Noy, who was welcoming and the location make this a place I'm returning to this April on my second trip to LP. Rooms are very clean and the location on the river is very relaxing. Ut is so close to the main streets but still allows for some quiet peace.

Booked for three. Stayed for five. The lady in charge is lovely and very helpful. 10 min walk to night market and restaurants in a lovely position along the river. Breakfast is good with a good selection. Can't fault at all!

A good and convenient place to stay with a team of hospitable staff. So close & yet within walking distance to almost everywhere with the picturesque Namkhan river situated right in front of the B&B. Our room is clean and comfy. We love the firmness of the mattress but the pillows were a little high for us. The air conditioned...

I stayed here for almost two weeks while in Luang Prabang for work. I had a small room in the main guesthouse. For the price, this is a good value. My room had a small fridge, a tv with a couple of channels in English , and two complimentary bottles of water were provided each day. Breakfast was served out...

Our room was clean and comfortable, as expected but no frills. Breakfast is big (eggs, fruit, baguette, coffee/tea (powdered creamer) and a glass of sweet orange colored liquid), but we ended up going to a wonderful coffee shop for breakfast just 5 min away. If all you expect is decent clean room you will be satisfied.

Clean but simple rooms in this friendly family run hotel which has a travel company attached - the proprietress advised us on transport to Vang Vien and booked us on the VIP bus which included a tuktuk transfer. She also advised us on where to eat for my husband's birthday and surprised him with a birthday cake! Breakfast is in...

The lady running this place is very nice, welcoming and service minded. That is quite rare in Laos, and perhaps the reason why the reviews are so good. The room we had was no more than average, quite small with a small bathroom, and a bit smelly. Breakfast was also average, somehow it is not possible to get a real...
