Stayed at Villa Ban Phanluang over Christmas. It was
Room and the entire place is clean, nothing fancy but does the job for sleeping comfortably.
Location is great to town is great. There is a bamboo bridge costing Kp7,000 (about 50cent) for a round trip. In a way, being on the other side of the main street is great. It is busy and away from the most touristy zone. It feel more authentic around here but it is just 5 mins walk to high street!
The guesthouse provides bikes for free. Really nice to cycle around town. I loved View Point cafe, great view.
Breakfast is also quite nice.
Tom, owner of the hotel, is super friendly and kind. In fact, locals are nice and happy people. Luang Prabang has the charm and I will definitely go back.
Note, if you go to waterfalls, best way is to rent a private van there so you can manage your own time (kp 25,000). Walk to spring water (3km from top of waterfall) to have some Beer Laos and play some games. The restaurant owner at this place is fun to chat with. Enjoy!! ;-)
We've been travelling around Asia for 5 months now, and can honestly say this is one of the best guesthouses we have stayed in. The family are very friendly and helpful, the room is very comfortable with good wifi, and the breakfast choice was wide and very good (if you are on the upper floors, your breakfast can be served to your balcony area as well). Water bottles provided and refill available. Location is away from the main area but only 5-10 minute walk at most across the bamboo bridge. A great value option in Luang Prabang.
Really, nice chill place to stay at in an awesome location. The host is always willing to help and staff are great too. Room was spacious, clean and AC worked well. Has many cable channels too. Top recommend!
Me and my girlfriend are travelling round Asia and we booked this hotel. The rooms were beautiful with room service everday and fresh towels. Breakfast was also amazing with a variety of options and great shakes all free. Another great extra were you get free bikes to ride around on.the host was the kindest caring man who helped with every question we had ! Highly recommend this place to stay !!
We stayed here for a week. The location is great in a quiet area just over the bamboo bridge from the old town. Close to some excellent restaurants. The room itself was clean and spacious and the staff would make up the room every day and if you were still in the room they would give water, clean towels and toiletries and leave you to it! Upon leaving our host drove us to the bus station for a reasonable fee and made sure we found the right bus and checked that we had no problems getting the correct tickets. He was a lovely man and went above and beyond what could be expected. I can’t recommend this place enough especially when you take in to account the price we paid.
