Thongbay Guesthouse was our first and best Guesthouse during our trip from north to south Laos. The staff is incredible friendly and helpful. We had the family bungalow for three adults and enjoyed our stay very much. We started our trip in Luang Prabang and it was just the right choice after a long journey from Europe, being in the...

We stayed at Thongbay Guesthouse for 5 days on our first visit to Luang Prabang. Staff are amazingly welcoming and helpful. We loved our little house overlooking the river Khan. It was nice to be outside of the city centre and the free shuttle bus worked very well for us (including a free transfer from the airport). Breakfasts were the...

We were 5 people staying for 4 nights in this beautiful guesthouse. When we arrived, we got a welcome drink and a nice home-made cake. The staff was extremely friendly. It was like a big family. We also ate dinner in the guesthouse as they serve excellent food. You can find cheaper places but it is definitely worth it to...

We booked for two days but stayed 5! Lovely bungalows set in an immaculate garden. Nice position on the river. Good restaurant. 100% clean rooms. Wonderful breakfasts, but best of all the totally attentive and kind staff will stop at nothing to make your stay the most comfortable you have ever had. We would return without a doubt. Thank you...

We miss Thongbay every day! Both the place and the people! We were there for 5 nights in December. It was the perfect first stop in a foreign land after a loooong journey traversing the globe. My husband and I and our 9 year old daughter all felt welcomed as soon as we arrived. The genuine friendliness of the staff...

We stayed here for 3 nights and absolutely loved it! When we arrived they greeted us with homemade juice and bread. The rooms are very authentic with fans and air-conditioned. Each morning, they deliver your choice of 4 different breakfasts to your bungalow for free, all of which are plenty of food. Although they are about a 20 minute walk...

I stayed here for 5 nights in December 2016. I had a bungalow on the river. There are two things that stand out about this guesthouse; it's in a peaceful and serene setting and the employees of this guesthouse are second to none! There is no TV in the room so if you like to travel across the world to...

We totally loved our stay in this Guesthouse. We've stayed there for 5 days and it was perfect! It's situated not so far from town so you can reach the center easily by foot, by bike or thanks to the free shuttles. The staff was very friendly and gave us good advices to visit the neighbourhood. The bungalows are spacious...

This guesthouse is ideally situated on the outskirts of the central district of Luang Prabang. It is a great choice for people looking for a quiet environment away from the touristy part of town. Despite being farther away, one can easily get to the main attractions of the city by the free bicycles or by the free shuttle service. The...

Everything about Thongbay Guest house is absolutely phenomenal. My family and I stayed at Thongbay for 8 (non consecutive) nights in December 2016. We are two adults and 2 kids ages 10 and 13.
