Good for early morning activity

Staff was helpful (depends on whom you meet), nice room, the vendor opposite to the hotel did not give sticky rice (for monks) with other foods while other vendor do at the same price
On the first day when we arrived bus station, the driver would drop off us at other hotel. We had to insist not to drop -off there. We found out that the hotel name may be confusing for tuk-tuk driver and new comers. The staff whom we met on the first day and the last day (same person) was very helpful, while another one was just ok. Good place for early morning activity (morning market, giving sticky rice to monk) and back to rest a bit more. However, the vendor opposite to the hotel did not give sticky rice (for monks) with other foods while other vendor do at the same price.

Great place.

The location was great to see the priests getting food at dawn. It was easy walking distance to the river, restaurants, temples and night market. . The room was well set up.
Excellent. I would use it again and recommend it.

Perfect Position

Close to centre, yet not on the main road. Buddhist monks walk past the hotel early in the morning.
We treated our selves to this lovely intimate B&B on our first two days in Luang Prabang. It was on a side street where locals live, with chickens, children and dogs running free, so felt very authentic. The room was comfortable, with dark wood and a balcony that we could sit and observe the local activity. Would stay again.

Simple Guest House

Location, Friendliness of Staff & Promptness
Overall was good, no complaint. Location is good. Many things near the guest house - Front Mekong River, Back is Khan River with restaurants and café lining the small lane. The road was quite dark at night. Two buildings for this guest house, we stayed at the other building. Staff was very polite and try their best to assist but command of English not good. The guest house is located within residence area. Walking distance to everywhere.

Excellent location for observing pre-dawn "tak bat

Location for tak bat, comfortable room and free valuables-keeping service
I chose it for the obvious reason of having a good location to observe the tak bat unobtrusively and it worked! My room was also directly opposite the story-telling theatre which was a pleasant surprise! It is managed by a Scotsman but is performed by two local Lao: one tells famous Lao folklore in English while the other plays the iconic Lao panpipes, the Khene. What I disliked about the hotel was one of its morning shift male front desk staff. He was rude and patronizing, and was more interested talking on his mobile phone than attending to the needs of customers. I could have stayed longer but felt that good money should not be wasted on bad customer service!
