Very nice staff, good quiet location


The owner is welcoming and very helpful. Breakfast was nice & pretty cheap. Our room was one of the ones which has not yet been renovated so didn't look a lot like the photographs advertised, but was clean and comfortable enough. Next time I would stay a bit closer to the markets etc, I believe there are plenty of places available for a similar price which are more convenient.

Of all the places we stayed in our 5-week, 4-country SE Asia trip, this was hands-down the best. The bed was even more comfortable than our own at home, and blew away the other places. Breakfast was great and the waterside view is amazing. Quiet area, helpful and friendly staff. The tours they book for you with an external company are not the best, so you may want to do research and book on your own. The bathtub in our room was insane, and once we figured it out, quite fun.


Lovely, clean and pretty place overlooking a peaceful river. Really a haven of tranquility. Staff is super friendly and helpful - they really go out of their way to help you find the best places and activities in town. As a solo traveler used to the social atmosphere of hostels, I felt a little bit too far removed from the main part of town to connect with other travelers. That said, one of the better hangouts for that (Utopia) happens to be nearby.


Curfew is at midnight, so you can't get back to your room later than 12 am or else you are locked out! Private rooms were nice with A/C. Close to the coolest bar Utopia, however kind of far from the night market. Staff was pretty accommodating, booked us our bus ticket for a small service fee. Breakfast is great but not included and could be a little cheaper.


Fantastic place. Enjoyed my stay in Luang Prabang much more then anticipated as I knew Id come back to this lovely place. The staff were great and extremely helpful. It was pretty much close to most attractions, such as the night market, utopia and so on. Would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in a clean, safe, friendly environment!


Absolutely wonderful stay. We felt very safe and comfortable throughout our stay. All of the staff were helpful and gave us a lot of information of what to do and how to do it cheaply. Breckfast was fantastic with good portions. Only grumble would be the wifi not reaching our room, however we didn't travel to the other side of the world to be on our phones. Would defiantly recommend and stay here again.
