Everything is walkable from here. Free breakfast was okay but nothing special. Room was nice, the a/c worked... More

Location of the guest house was really good! Just near the night market and other place of interest like the Luang Prabang National Museum, Mount Phousi! The guesthouse was clean and comfortable.. it is made up of 4 separate buildings with 2 floors each, centred by a courtyard, which was where their cafe was located at. If you live on... More

We had a great time staying here, close to the river and morning market. The triple room is well clean with Thai TV channels available. Staff is very helpful. We consider staying here again if there is a next trip.

We had spent several days in-land in rustic surroundings, and then traveled down the Mekong for several hours by speedboat. Stepping into this guesthouse after being hot and sweaty was like a little slice of heaven. The guesthouse is clean, welcoming, very comfortable. It has beautiful carved wood, and a really lovely courtyard. The staff were friendly and helpful. And... More

I went into this place not expecting much, and it almost met my expectation. It was very underwhelming. The rooms were not very clean. My toilet also leaked all over the floor every time it was flushed. There were bugs hiding in the curtains, which isn't a problem usually, but there were more than usual, and ants in the bathroom....

Booked with bookings.com so I was locked in for 10 days. When I arrived there was no one to help with my luggage. Manager's brother initially informed me breakfast wasn't included & handed me a menu with lots of choices.

We didn't feel very safe, as we know that some people would enter at our room in our absence. Someone tried to enter while we were in the room, with the sign "don't disturb" at the door. The room itself was very small and dark. The wifi didn't work
