We had such a lovely stay here!”
Our group of three people went to Luang for our first trip together and had just the BESTEST time there partially thanks to Apple Guest house. I loved everything about Apple GH, which is not a hyperbole. Its location makes every destination on our itinerary a walking distance, the wats, the National Museum, the bamboo bridges, the Phou Si hill, Dao Fa pub - best local pub btw (yes we walked for 45 mins there at night) All the staff was lovely and very helpful when we asked for recommendation or support for late night tuk tuk negotiation. The room was cosy, air-conditioned with cable TV, a hot shower and a mini bar with free water bottles. Another awesome thing about Apple GH is the spacious terrace with hot tea/coffee you can make for yourself at any time of the day. Even on a rainy afternoon we were able to have a little party there for ourselves (we kept it very appropriately quiet, I think.) HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOR EVERYONE COMING TO LUANG AT ANY TIME OF THE YEAR! Anh em Hà Nội đến Luông lần đầu hãy cứ ghé qua đây ở nhé. Thích lắm ạ. Cái gì cũng tiện, từ vị trí, nhân viên, vệ sinh... Phòng sạch sẽ nhiều ổ cắm, truyền hình cáp có hát-bê-ô VIETSUB oimeoi còn hịn hơn ở nhà k có kênh này. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE AT APPLE GH FOR TAKING CARE OF US DURING OUR TERRIFIC TIME IN LUANG PRABANG. WE REALLY APPRECIATE IT!
The guesthouse feels like home and surpasses all our expectations. It's our family's second time at Apple. Bounmee, his lovely family and wonderful staff showed great hospitality and helped us better appreciate Luang Prabang. The main street, Sisavangvong Road, is just round the corner. You can easily walk to the Mekong, Royal Palace, the Morning & Night Markets and access Mt Phousi. Our Standard Twin room was clean, comfortable and quiet (even in the afternoon). Fully equipped with A/C, WIFI, TV and fridge and a spotless bathroom! Thank you, Apple Guesthouse, we will definitely be back.
Lovely Place & Lovely People”
I've been coming to Luang Prabang for 12 years. This place is especially charming, and the owners are contagiously happy people with a sweet family. The Guesthouse is named after their daughter, Apple. :) I'll certainly be back to stay again. The superior room above is especially nice, with a very comfortable balcony and couch. Cleanliness, location and accommodating staff make this my favorite guesthouse in Luang Prabang.
My Go-To Guesthouse in Luang Prabang”
The owners and staff at Apple Guesthouse are just the best. You will not find more friendly or more helpful staff in all of Luang Prabang. They're like family to me. The rooms are comfortable with all that you need. Plenty of wall sockets, clean toilet, comfy beds, TV, A/C, etc... I only have one complaint — the WiFi is pretty weak, so you will need to bring your own WiFi solution if you need to get work done, but this is true of Laos in general. While they are slowly catching up, most places still don't offer anything strong enough to work or stream Facetime calls with.
Hi Joshua, Thank you so much for your awesome review, we appreciate your kindness and friendliness, we also really enjoyed hosting you too. We hope to see you again in the near future. Remark: we already fixed the WIFI and it is better signal now. Please take care Jimmy/Nou
Perfect place to stay”
A lovely family run place to stay, up a quiet, cute alleyway, close enough to everywhere you would need to walk to in Luang Prabang. The beds are comfortable, AC and WiFi work well, clean bathrooms, in fact everything good! Friendly staff who are always eager to ask about your day in a non pushy way and offer suggestions. A nice communal balcony to have your free tea and coffees. As a mature female solo traveller I have no hesitation invrecommending Apple Guesthouse as a safe and happy place to stay.
Hi Karen, Thank you very very much for your fantastic review that you gave us, we apprciate your time, effort and your kindness. We also enjoyed so much for hosting you, you are very friendly, easy going, flexible, approuchible and kind person. We are really sorry that we could not accommodate you at Apple Guesthouse for your whole stay. I felt sad to say goodbye to you at Apple2 Guesthouse this morning. We hope to see you again next time. Please take care Jimmy/Nou
Apple Guesthouse is a great spot. "Feels like home." I have been to Luang Prabang several times and stayed at other guesthouses. I was at Apple for ten days, so being in a good spot was critical.. It's in an alley (pathway), so it's quite (even during Pi Mai, Lao New Year). Great public space, balcony with tea/coffee, etc. Great staff. I would (hopefully: will) stay again.
Hi Philip, Thank you so much for your awesome review, we appreciate your kindness and friendliness, we also really enjoyed hosting you too. We hope to see you again in the near future. Please take care Jimmy/Nou
We had a wonderful stay at Apple Guesthouse as a young couple. Ideal location, comfortable rooms, friendly service. No breakfast which was not a problem as Luang Prabang has no shortage of cafes, and enjoyed sampling as many as we could. Unlimited tea/coffee/water on the shared balcony was a lovely homely touch. Overall this must be the best value for money LP offers.
Hi Darcy, Thank you very much for your excellent review, we all appreciate your kindness. We hope that you enjoyed your stay with us and your holiday in Luangprabang, Laos. We all are looking forward to hosting you again soon. Regards Jimmy
Nice stay, but a little noisy”
Overall, I enjoyed our stay at Apple Guesthouse. The location is great and within walking distance of just about all the shops and restaurants you'd want to visit while in Luang Prabang. And if you want to go out farther, there are moto rental offices nearby. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean, the wifi worked well, and the A/C blew cold. We didn't use the safe, fridge, or TV, but they're there. My only complain is that it can get noisy. With very little sound insulation in the walls and windows, the sounds of the neighbors talking or the customers from the nearby restaurants can get really bothersome in the early mornings if you're a sensitive sleeper.
We extended our stay at Apple Guesthouse. The location was absolutely brilliant. We upgraded rooms and found the room with the King sized bed and fridge/balcony to be significantly better than the one downstairs. We stayed mostly because we enjoyed the accommodation, but partly because we were sick. It is very close to many beautiful parts of Luang Prabang, including night market and the bamboo bridge (when intact), many great restaurants around. Staff were friendly. They ask you to leave your key with them when you check out which we found odd but convenient. It is expensive but not for Luang Prabang, where there are numerous pricey items. This room particularly we found to be quite luxurious.
Clean, Comfortable Guesthouse at the strategic location.”
I stayed 2 days at the Single Room and everything is above my expectation. The room is spacious enough for one person with very comfortable bed. I didn't expect but there is TV and fridge in this Single Room. The bathroom is very clean and big. The guesthouse gives you a feeling of staying at your own house and all the staff are very friendly and helpful and speak good English. The guesthouse is very near to the Mekong River side and of near walking distance to all the main attractions at Luang Prabang.
Clean, Location, Good Value”
Stayed for 2nights - nice little guesthouse with clean rooms and modern wet rooms. Wifi worked very well. Laundry very quick. Cafés and restaurants on your doorstep- these establishments were a bit more pricey - seems like the nicer part of Luang Prabang. Walk a bit further down and you'll reach the night markets and stalls where you can get good street food, sandwiches and drinks. Also very close to temple where you can walk to the top and view the whole of the town. Famous bars like Hive and Utopia are on the other side of the night markets a bit of a walk away but still doable - we just didn't make it. Would definitely recommend and stay again!
Beyond excellent! Absolutely wonderful!!!”
We have kept coming back to this wonderful guesthouse, it is simply the best! All staff go out of their way to help in any way they can and are exceptionally friendly. They will book things for you without adding an extra charge! The rooms are very clean and beautifully presented, beds comfortable, shower hot and aircon cold. It's in a perfect quiet picturesque little lane with the Mekong river just a few steps away and the night market only an easy 5min walk. I can't recommend this place more highly. I will most definitely stay here again when I next visit beautiful Luang Prabang.
A very pleasant stay”
I've booked 4 nights at apple's and would definitely come back to stay if I'm ever back in Luang Prabang. Reception was very responsive in attending to our needs and could communicate fluently in English. Beds were made, bottled water replenished and towel changed ever day of our stay even though the little notice upon the table top mentioned that housekeeping will be done once every 3 days. The extra service could be accorded to us as it's the low season (April) but my party consisting of 3 elderly relatives were grateful for the extra consideration. Showers were warm with a good pressure. The only minor trouble we encountered in the downstair room is that the water drains out snail pace. We had thought something was stucked but with the very helpful reception help, we discovered that it's just how Laotian drainage works. It was solved once we flip over the metal shower strainer. Location was perfect. If you're getting up for the morning alms giving ceremony, consider stationing yourself at the exit of the hotel leading into the smaller roads (not the river exit). From the first junction on your left (where a small grocery store is) you'd get a quaint picture of the monks on their alms rounds without the throngs of tourist where the main street is.

And we hope that we will have an opportunity to host you again in the near future.

Best Regards. Jimmy
Lovely Guesthouse in great location”
Stayed in Luang Prabang for four nights. It's a family run guesthouse which is always well staffed. They speak very good english and can give some great recommendations of things to go see and do. Booked a trip to the Kuang Si Waterfalls with them and lift to the airport. Comfortable rooms and very well located two streets off the main road and very close to the night market. Would recommend this place.
Friendly staff, clean & strategic location ”
Everything are great. The location is strategic; walking distance to the Mekong River, Namkhan river, night market, museum and Phousi Hill. Room is clean and comfortable. The only issue was the system error and they were run out of the room on our first night stay and put us to the opposite guest house (Soutikone 1) which is a very dirty, dusty, unfriendly staff and bed bugs issue. We had total spent 3 nights in Apple Guesthouse, friendly staffs, and will definitely recommend to friends and revisit again.
Great family-run guesthouse”
Jimmy and his wife are lovely hosts. They do their best to make all guests feel welcome and can arrange whatever you need in day trips, doing laundry or a ride to the airport. Luang Prabang is an upscale tourist town so Jimmy does his best to give you the most bang for your buck. Only con: our room was smaller and the inn was located right off a road with some noise, but we slept well and if you want total peace you will have to stay out of town in an expensive resort anyway. The location is great though for walking into the main drag without being too close to the busy night market. It was also close to the river and a couple of great healthy cafes.
Would stay again”
I arrived to Luang Prabang with sick and so spent a lot of time in this room. We thought it was nice, but slightly shabby (since we were in the cheapest room). Luang Prabang is expensive. Even though I was in the room most of the time, no matter what time I managed to drag myself out of the room (for food) they would pop in, make the bed and empty the rubbish bin. Beer Laos and water were cheaper here than at most of the shops around town so if you do buy it, do it here. They have cold water on the upstairs balcony though. We decided to extend our stay which is why there are two reviews from me for this place. We would definitely look to stay here next time we are in Laos due to location and price.
Apple Guesthouse gives me a lot of surprise!”
I stayed 3 nights here with my family. Apple has the clean room and excellent location. All the staff are very friendly and they speak good English. At first, there's some complicated situations on me, the staff and the owner's mother helped me solve it in time. I really appreciated for their understanding and kindness. Thanks for Apple Guesthouse, I spent an unforgettable holiday in LP!

This was the 4th hotel which I stayed in Luang Prabang and the best hotel ever! The reasons why I love this hotel very much is as below. 1. Friendly and at home staffs Once came by there, it feels my home because of their natural friendly attitude. 2. Great speed WiFi at room and lobby More than 5mbs. You can watch YouTube or anything smoothly 3. Clean spacious room 4. Facilities Refrigerator (we can keep and drink cold Lao beer), flat TV (we can watch CNN) 5. Tour, Tuk Tuk to airport service They offer many tours like a tour to the waterfall which are offered by the travel agencies here. The price is quite similar, so why not to ask here. 6. Location Quiet neighbor but many restaurants, shops, massage shops around this neighbor. I will definitely stay again. Believe me guys and enjoy stay there!
Hi Masahiro, Thank you very much for your fantastic review, we really appreciate your kindness and we hope to see you again. Regards Jimmy
A Wonderful Place to stay in Luang Prabang”
Here are lots of guest houses to stay at in Luang Prabang. So what makes this one special? The owner and his family. You could not wish for better hosts. The guest house is in a quiet side road. It is steps to the Mekong and waterfront restaurants. 5 mind walk will get you to the centre of town or the night market. It is an easy walk to the viewpoint at the end of the peninsula, and all the other places of interest are an easy walk. There is always coffee, tea and bananas available upstairs in the communal sitting area. The owner and staff are kind and very helpful. Just ask. Would definitely come back.
Hi Robert, Thank you very much for staying with Apple Guesthouse, we enjoyed so much for hosting you and we hope to see you again. Take care Jimmy
