Our host emailed us and said to phone him when we arrived on the slow boat: we thought he meant he'd pick us up. On the contrary, we had to take a bus into town (10kms). In town we rang again and he kindly came over to the cafe and gave us written directions so we could get a tuk tuk there.
The picture is deceptive: it looks way more glamorous than the guest house actually is.
We were there in the low season so in fact we could have got something of equal standard and a better view (eg river) for a lot less money.
Amenities were average: air con was old and the cable TV was a 12 inch old fashioned model.
On the positive side, it was a quiet location opposite a temple with a French bakery nearby. It was pleasant to hear the gongs at 4am and 6pm daily.
My stay was short but pleasant. The host was wonderful, picking me up at the airport and setting up my cell phone. The location is great, quiet and across from a beautiful temple.
Stayin here was a good experience! This little family-run guesthouse is in a very nice and quiet part of Luang Prabang, close to the river and a very authentic little french Cafe is just next door. The room is nice and very clean. I would recommend staying here!
Although the linens and towels were clean, the bathroom is in need of a major overhaul. Probably because the drain is not located at the lowest point in the bathroom in #6, the grout is covered with mildew. I found a cheaper, nicer place for my last night in Luang Prabang.
This was a lovely place to stay. I was very well treated and enjoyed the room and the location.
