Spent 3 nights here while exploring the beautiful LN countryside and although it was not the most convenient location, about 1 mile our of town, you certainly get away from it all and the owners were great. ROOMS Large bungalows, with small terrace and ensuite. No mosquito nets but didn't have any problems. HOTEL Although seemed a reasonable size, it...

Nam Tha Riverside Guesthouse and sweet Noi were such a treat! Noi and her family are so accommodating and warm that you feel you're getting much more than just a place to sleep, but an experience with a lovely Laos family. The bungalows are so charming and stay cool in the heat. It's a bit out of town but with...

We found Nam Tha Riverside Guest House more a homestay with a warm and friendly atmosphere than a ordinary Guest House. The family is very friendly and open to be in close contact to their guests if they wish so. We really enjoyed our stay there. Yes, it is a little bit outside the centre, but with the bicycles they...

This was our mistake in Luang Namtha. Three kilometres far away from the centre with no restaurant. Nice views but SO dirty. The place is quite abandoned, it seems nobody is taking care of it anymore. There are many other options in the city: our last night, after having dinner in the night market, there were no available tuk tuks...

I've visited Luang Namtha several times at different times of the year. The host and hostess of the Riverside Guest House are an awesome couple, providing reasonably priced accommodations, delicious foods, and variable and interesting activity options. They have an excellent staff. They do their best to control numerous factors impacting the guest house and their guests. Some things can't...

Attractive Lao-style, clean, spacious bungalow with decent bed, clean bedding and fluffy towels. Hot water sporadic but shower worked. Garden entry and property generally attractive, but hardly peaceful with river-dredging during day and karaoke bar blaring at night. Multi-functional, overworked manager Noi very helpful. However, many details on the website were far from accurate...especially out-of-date tour prices. No longer a...

We stayed here for 4 nights in one of the most out of ordinary accommodation in Luang Namtha. It is located in a quiet neighbourhood about 2km south of the town centre, right on the bank of the Namtha River. From the entrance, the guests walk through a winding path among a lush garden where bamboos and hibiscus abound. The...

We stayed for 3 nights, 1 night, then a trek that they organized, and another 2 nights afterwards. Noi and Nou were awesome in helping organize our stay, trek, bus etc. and we really appreciated them coordinating a ride back with them to the hotel. We enjoyed the breakfast on the Nam River.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Fantastic location and lovely rooms in a small family run guesthouse beside the Nam Tha river. Only 1.5km out of Luang Namtha center,it is quiet and more charming than other options in the town, as well as being half the price of the similar style 'Boat Landing', a further 6km out of town. Delicious traditional Lao food can be enjoyed in the lush garden, overlooking the gentle meanders of the Nam Tha River. ... more   less

“There are many many nice places in Luang Namtha: avoid it during the rainy season. Check it on arrival for cleanness before paying, the place was empty anyway. Plenty of space around.”
