    Great stay and staff were incredibly helpful”

    The room itself was quite big and spacious, we stayed in the Queen Room. The shower “room” and bathtub placement is meant to be quite romantic, but a warning - get ready to have pretty much half the floor wet as if you take a shower it is quite common to get water around the floor beyond the shower area. Breakfast was fantastic, love the Lao noodle soup in the mornings. Location wise it is bery convenient and you can easily access temples and the night market easily (just 5 mins walk). Room was faily decent in terms of cleanliness, although one of the towels we got smelled a bit funny. However i think this was an isolated case. Overall, loved our stay and would definitely recommend this hotel.

    The hotel worst ever”

    Only staffs are kind, other facilities are worst ever. Rooms are too humid, shower head broken. My second night water came into the bedroom(flooded), we requested to change the room but they refused at the beginning they said the room were full. later on they moved us to a dusty room.

    Pleasant stay”

    Booked this hotel for my boyfriend and I as I saw that they had a really nice jacuzzi bath tub but was surprised as I got the Queen Room, the shower was detached from the toilet so it was out open in the room and if we take shower, even from the rain shower, the water would splash everywhere. Would suggest them to put a glass panel to prevent the water from splashing. Other than that, the room was great! Although we put “Do not disturb” at the door, the house keeping still knocked. The TV has great entertainment from local channel and international channel. Would definitely visit again and request for the King Room! Recommend for couples as shower and bath tub are detached from the toilet.

    Helpful and Friendly staff”

    The staff was helpful especially night shift stuff will take care on your need and wake up early in the morning to prepare for alms giving upon request. The location is convenient for alms giving as just in front of the hotel. But it is some walking distance to the night market and morning market even though it is acceptable to me. The room is considered clean but just the room structure is a bit different from other hotel. For double bedroom, the shower area is beside the bed area and not covered. For those who travel with friend, it is advise to take twin room instead of double room. In general, I'm satisfy with the hotel on the helpful stuff and valuable price.

    A very cute and quaint hotel, but not might suit everyone”

    My wife and I stayed here for 8 nights in February. We found that that this hotel was ideally situated for what we wanted to do, i.e. just far enough away from the centre where there is some traffic, and located in a quiet back street area, but still close enough to anything (local sights) and everything (small restaurants/cafes) to make absolutely nothing a hassle. This hotel is also sweet, cute and quaint. It has great staff who are friendly, helpful and charming. Our room (The Cow) was equipped with a telephone, modern TV, DVD player, kettle, small fridge, air-con, and the bed was very comfortable. It also provides an excellent breakfast. However, there are quite a number of grumbles too: there were no wardrobe facilities, I mean absolutely nowhere to hang clothes from your suitcases except on a wooden towel rail. The bath, with the rain-water shower head, was in the bedroom right against the side wall, having no curtain or cubicle and so even with being extra careful and vigilant, water did, nevertheless, tend to fly across the bedroom floor; thankfully the toilet was separate! The bedroom wall on the street side is wooden and so any street noise at all penetrated. There was no safe in the room and we therefore needed to store valuables in the safes in Reception, which was a tad inconvenient to say the least. Off all things the cups and saucers in the room caused us major problems. The central part of the saucer where the cup fitted was actually designed to be hole, and so when you lifted your cup to your lips any spillage in the saucer then leaked out onto your lap, or as in our case the bed sheets! The worst aspect though was the internet connection, more often than not it was totally dreadful, so bad in fact that we used to connect to the coffee shop across the road, which proved to be 100% reliable! Despite our grumbles, and I know this might sound a bit odd, but we did truly enjoy our stay there and we would go back there without hesitation.

    The only shortcoming this hotel had was they didn't have a room safe. Otherwise, I really enjoyed staying here. The monks walk right by your door in the morning. Great places to eat nearby. The staff was friendly and helpful.

    Top Service and Cleanliness”

    I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the room, the service, and how well the cleaning staff maintained the room. The air conditioning worked well in the hottest part of the day. There was a little noise in the evening with children playing and laughing outside in the street but that was a pleasant noise...not at all disturbing. The only drawback was spotty and weak wifi. I'd also recommend booking day trips on your own and not going through the hotel which saves more than 50%. Breakfast was average, but plenty of fruit and bacon/sausage and choice of eggs. I'd rate it he hotel over an 8 out of 10.

    Wonderful stay at this cheerful, friendly guesthouse. Large room and nice decoration. Very friendly staff (Mr. Wong) and helpful owner. Good breakfast. Down a quiet street but just a couple of blocks from the rivers and night markets -- easy to go around. My room was on the next building. The WIFI Signal is weak but not a big problem. Would highly recommend for travellers who don't need anything fancy but appreciate a nice, comfortable, cozy, and pleasant hotel.

    Location, decent breakfast included, now has safes in room

    I enjoyed my stay at Ancient Luang Prabang, convenient walking distance to the main drag in town for the cafés. The rooms are outfitted with lots of dark wood, so the rooms are a bit gloomy with only overhead and wall lights. Even with all lights turned on, it was a bit dark. Bed was very comfortable with good pillows. The breakfast was included, and didn't change from morning to morning. The last of 4 days the jam changed. Plenty of extremely hot water in the bath! That was much appreciated. The mornings in winter are so cool, I had to soak my feet in hot water to get the chill off.

    Very nice room, best choice for the budget price

    It's the new hotel of the ancient luang prabang, but in a much quieter place. Also cheaper, $42 from agoda when I booked. Might be a little bit difficult to find it for the first time. Still not far away from the night market and main street( 10 min). The room is very spacious and well designed. Cute balcony with armchairs.I have to say it's the best hotel during my stay in Luang Prabang( I stayed at other two hotels previously ). Hope it won't raise the price.

    Great location, more than adequate room and awesome staff.

    We received more value for our money - given the hotel rate per night. Ideal location as off the main road but close enough to walk or cycle to town center. Room was really nice with amenities more than we expected. Finally, thumbs up to the staff, who were always willing to help and able to anticipate our needs. There are some considerations though. The free breakfast offered to us were so-so and we were surprised that they didn't even have a "local" option. Also, the shower had a leak that water splattered all over the room given that the shower/bathtub was part of the bedroom with no proper partition.

    Safety Breach”

    Room was ok - good tub. Location in between of Mekong River Area and Town Area (road). Did not get to have their breakfast as I was out daily early in the morning and quite some time. Everything was ok until the next day (after check-in), the door ledge was broken and seems like it was cut open purposely by someone. I've requested receptionist to replaced it asap before I return from Kuang Si. And, they replaced it by taking another unit of door ledge from the next room. Stay alert at all times! Definitely not suitable for a female solo traveler.

    We booked thru agoda but the only option available was "direct payment to hotel" which give us another problem. We didn't know that Agoda "sent" us to booking.com as the 3th party, hotel didn't recon our agoda voucher, they said room fully book. what a nightmare, its a few days before the new year eve ... The lady owner was trying to contact agoda, and finally they found my name under booking.com Located a bit far from night market, 500 m walk but quite. Breakfast was just simple as bread n butter with boiled eggs. Overall its a peasant stay.
