Highly recommend like other reviews, it is in the center of Luangprabang, walking distance to major places. But I did not feel like I am staying in middle of the town because of the Khan River view and the temple near by. All staff are nice and polite. I booked for 2 nights and decided to stay 1 more night after checking other guesthouses near by...just pay a little extra.

Room tip: Get the river view room.

We highly recommend this guest house. We have a river view room with a terrace. The room is clean, comfortable with lovely bedding and the bathroom is small but has a hot water shower. We have enjoyed sitting out on our terrace with a glass of wine watching the world go by in the early evening. Breakfast is included and is different from the usual breakfast - fruit salad and pancakes - very yummy. It is very close to the sights being situated in the historical quarter of Luang Prabang. We would stay here again.

Room tip: Ask for a ground floor room with terrace. It is really lovely sitting out there in the evening and it is great having the extra space.

Working as motorbike guide in Laos, i discover this hotel downtown LPQ during my last trip in january. The hotel takes place in old colonial house and in old wooden house, between the "nam kong river" and the "nam khan river.
Nice place to stay and to feel the spirit of this old royal capital through this place.
Good service and good restaurant ("Couleur Cafe").
Free service : WIFI,TV, AIR COND, LAUNDRY.
The owners speak: French, English, Thai, and Lao.
My advice is : you are in old royal capital and stay in old colonial house, is the best way to be in harmony with this town.
Laurent.

I already had a favorite hotel out of town, now with SayNamKhan I also have a favorite place right in the middle of the old Luang Prabang town!

For me, the 2 rivers, Mekong and NamKhan count for 50% of the extraordinary ambiance of this sacred town, So I find that when staying in Luang Prabang, it would be a shame not to stay by the river! I love the susnset on the Mekong side, but for my hotel I definitly prefer the quiet Nam Khan river side. The SayNamKhan hotel has it both: If you got a room with a balcony you can enjoy beautiful and peacefull morning sunrises with an amazing view on the charming Nam Khan river and mountains in the back, and it is just 2 minutes walk from the Mekong banks for evening sunsets.

The hotel is a traditionnal lao house, which makes you feel the authentic vibes of Luang Prabang. Of course it may not be as confortable as a mordern construction, but this is a personnal choice and the experience one wants to live: I definitly prefer to be in this beautiful old building that is unique and authentinc, that IS the real Luang Prabang than staying in a fancy boutique hotel that could be anywhere else in the world.

Rooms are very clean. Bed was very confortable (seems to be brand new at the time I was there). Staff is very friendly. The restaurant next door is also very nice. I will definitly come back.

Room tip: Rooms downstairs have a private balcony

very disappointed by this place: staff was pleasant but changed continuously, people who served our breakfast were never seen again and the next day there were still new faces different from those present the night before. No restaurant in the place and breakfast was basic (even the tea was tasteless!) The furniture in our room was just one double bed (too big for the space which forced us to squeeze in and out of bed - no mattress, rather a large but very thin and hard kind of carpet put on top of the bed's wooden frame), one table and a chair, one lamp - with the ratan shade so thick that you could not read unless you were standing exactly under the lamp. Nowhere to hang our clothes, except a wooden board fixed to the wall with 3 pegs and just as many wire hangers. The bathroom was so small that you could not open the door because of the basin behind it.... and once inside, you could not keep the door shut : the lock was broken. The only good thing about the place was its location, very central indeed, but Luang Prabang is so small that no place is far from the city center anyway. There are many other guest houses nearby and had we not pre-paid our stay, we would have not spent 3 nights in this miserable place
