Thongbay was our first real stopover in Laos. I booked here because I loved the photos of the bathroom. It is in a beautiful setting, gorgeous gardens and lovely outlook over the river. Staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful, as are the owners. Loved the breakfast set-up on our balcony each morning, served promptly at our requested times. Cleanliness was...

This nice place is an excellent choice, the relaxing garden and views, the fabulous breakfast, the wonderful decoration of the rooms, the air conditioning pick-up van, and the friendly staff, so helpful and nice! On our last day, as our bus was leaving late evening, we had left the luggage in the hotel and we were even offered the possibility...

This is hospitality as it should be. Comfortabl, river facing bungalows that offer loads of privacy. This place is tranquil and definitely great for relaxing. Yes, it is a bit outside the city centre, but that is not a problem at all as there's a free shuttle at set times that will take you into town and back. Thongbay also...

I stayed in one of their bungalows facing the garden. It was a wonderful experience! The staff members were extremely nice and helpful. The room was very nice and the terrace (where the breakfast was served every morning at the requested time) was a wonderful place to relax. The hotel is located a bit away from the city center, but...

Set right on the Nam Khan river, the views are just lovely from the riverside bungalows. The gardens are lush, beautiful and so serene. The bungalow itself was very comfortable and spacious and had a balcony, where you could recline on loungers of sit at at table to enjoy the included breakfast. I can't speak highly enough of the staff,...

We loved this place. We stayed for 4 nights in June/July. The staff were so friendly and genuinely interested in us as people. Our bungalow overlooked the river, so peaceful. I like to stay in different places for the experience but would go back to stay here. The breakfast was a four course meal, brought to us at a time...

Incredible service, great rooms, lovely ambience, and amazing breakfast. By far the best place to say in Luang Prabang. The only minus on it is that it you need a tuk tuk whenever you leave the hotel, but the hotel does provide free shuttle service. Overall, highly highly recommended.

My friends and I absolutely adore Thongbay Guest House! We arrived for a short (too short) stay in LP for 4 days and have been treated so well by the staff here. Everyone is incredibly warm and friendly. Our room is on the river, beautiful balcony and views. Breakfast brought to our room every morning. Shuttle rides to and from...

I had a wonderful stay with the folks at Thongbay. They made everything so easy. From picking me up at the airport in their shuttle (no charge) to serving breakfast at a time of my choosing. I really liked the location which is just out of town on the bank of the Nam Khan river. Their breakfast choices are excellent....
