      Peaceful, magical place”

      From the moment you arrive on the grounds at the Thongbay Guest House you feel welcomed and part of the family. There is such a peacefulness about the location overlooking the river that cannot be replicated anywhere. The breakfast is delicious, the free bikes are really fun, and the shuttle into town is really easy and convenient. The staff is the best part of this place though. They are very accommodating and friendly and will help in anyway they can. This place was recommended to me and I will recommend it to anyone going to Luang Prabang. I hope to come back!

      Great stay in a river view room”

      Throughly enjoyed our stay in a river view room. The guesthouse is an easy 15 mins walk from town but there are regular shuttles, and its worth being out of town for the peaceful feel and views. Breakfast is actually worth getting up for (very unusual for us!) and the staff are both friendly and helpful. Hope to be back!

      Loved everything thing about this place. From the airport pickup onwards everything was first class. The location, accommodation, gardens and the breakfast served at the time you request on your balcony/ terrace was delicious. Special mention must go the staff. They were all so friendly, helpful and polite. A real credit to themselves and the Guesthouse.

      Wonderful place .. second visit last was 7 years ago ”

      This place run by familly we came 7 years ago and enjoyed it so much that we stayed 6 days.. this time was able to get last minute booking.. still enjoyed the place but was more noisy .. as Luang Prabang grew so much .. in fact it s not the place that we did not enjoyed but Laos is not the same anymore... full of chineese and vietnameese group that are unpleasant and don t have any respect for others than themself. Also price went up a lot and seem that now the only thing Laos want from us is our money .. we been scam by the police also ... very unpleasnt. But Thongbay is a good hotel with good staff if you go in Luang Prabang go there it s a must!!

      Peace at last”

      I stayed in LP town for my first 3 days but wanted my last two nights to be outside the city where I would find less noise and the rush of tourists. Staying here was just the ticket for me. Gardens are sooo green and well attended. I selected a room/ bungalow... with the river view and what a great choice. Very private and the view was lovely. Breakfast is selected the night before ( 4 choice options!!!)... at the front desk and delivered to your balcony at your selected time. A great breakfast with a good range of food. I am a breakfast person and I was very satisfied ;) the room was huge with AC and a ceiling fan and mosquito net. It was a 20 minute walk into town and I did walk in and back on one day. ( both directions I would not do again, especially in the evening ). Busy, dark road with many motor bikes. Hotel offers drop- off and pick-up service on designated times, so why walk right? A wat is very close by ...should you want to witness the monks early in the morning during alms service. This experience is very disrespectful in town. Avoid! Tourist just don't have a clue what respectful behaviour looks like! An authentic experience is just minutes up the road from this hotel. Very well worth the 5:30 rise. I would most certainly stay here again. The only negative???? no wi-fi in the room. I had to sit at the front lobby to get a signal...heaven forbid! ;) . Oh the pain right? ;) lol. At least this hotel had wi-fi to offer their guests while some do not. ;) Great hotel. Highly recommend! Would certainly stay again. Tip? Book directly with the hotel and you'll get a better rate.

      Beautiful Location on the River”

      We stayed here for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The bungalows are are clean and comfortable and offer great views from the deck. The breakfast we received each morning was the best we've had in Asia so far (thats saying something). The only issue (minor) is that the hotel is a bit out of the way - you won't walk from here to the night market or the centre of town. They do offer a convenient shuttle service to and from the property.

      Fantastic Bungalows”

      This is a beautifully maintained place. I stayed in one of the garden bungalows rather than one by the river. The bungalows have wooden floors and lots of decorative touches. The rooms are large with plenty of storage space and good showers. Wifi works well most of the time. Breakfast is huge with a variety of options and most choose to have it served on their balcony. The regular shuttle into town works well although it is sometimes a little sharp returning so don't be late! Otherwise it is only 20,000 Kip to take a tuktuk back anyway.

      Strong recommendation”

      I agree with the other visitors. You stay in the more quiet country side, but with the bibycle you can easily reach the centre of Luang Prabang. What I'd like to highlight most is the welcoming warmth of the staff. You feel it's a family business and they prepare the cake in order to welcome you personally. We will keep the bracelet and surely come back and recommend Thongbay to other friends.

      Simply Wonderful Experience!”

      There are really no words to describe just how perfect this place really is. First of all the property is absolutely gorgeous. Meticulously manicured gardens, beautiful bungalows and cute little seating areas throughout, all perched above a winding jungle-clad river, make this a place that’s definitely hard to leave. We peeked at several rooms during our weeklong stay and all were very nice and wonderfully private. The bungalows with garden views are beautiful with sprawling lawns separating them from the bungalows on the other side of the property, given each a sense of privacy. The bungalows on the river though, are truly spectacular. Each has a wooden deck with sublime views of the river and surrounding jungle. But as so many others have said, the thing that makes this place so special is the people. The staff here are some of the kindest and most accommodating people you’ll meet, and they’re ready and willing to help you out however they can. Most of them speak very good English and have lots of knowledge and insights regarding the area that they are able to share with guests. To top it off, the food in the restaurant was some of the best we’d had on our entire trip. The curries in particular are simply incredible! And did I mention the breakfast?!? You get to choose from several delicious set menus and they serve it to you wherever you want… including your private deck! That means you can wake up and have breakfast served to you on the table on your own deck overlooking the river! And yes, it is a tiny bit out of town, but that’s really part of its charm. It’s located on a paved side road, in a cute neighborhood that gives you the feel of staying in a small local village. The hotel provides timed shuttles that are air conditioned and very reliable. They also provide plenty of bikes that you can use to ride to town. We actually preferred riding the bikes to town since it only took about 5 minutes and was totally fun. All in all, stayin

      Extraordinary service and staff; superior food; tranquil riverfront setting”

      My six days at the Thongbay Guesthouse will be one of the most memorable travel experiences that I've had anywhere. The inn, set in a quiet section of the city on the Nam Khan river, provides you a feeling of calm with its lush trees and plants. It's a quiet place, but has excellent 5-minute access to the tourist district via frequent, free hotel shuttles driven by cheerful drivers. However what's really special about the Thongbay Guesthouse is its staff. They are as attentive and skilled as any you'll find in the most luxurious hotel. Moreover, they were all super-kind people, showing real concern for me when was briefly ill, among other things. One small illustration: during a a sudden storm and power outage one night, the kitchen cooked for me in total darkness; then four staff members walked through drenching rain with flashlights and umbrellas to bring food to my bungalow What a place! Expect occasional brief power/internet outages, which are beyond the hotel's control. The breakfast is great, especially the Lao coffee. Other meals are first-rate. I discovered very quickly that the food at the Guesthouse was far better than most of the tourist-oriented restaurants in central Luang Prabang. Let me pass on my thanks to all of the staff of the Thongbay Guesthouse.

      Riverfront location in a quiet neighbourhood; friendly and efficient staff; great breakfast options

      The bungalow had a fantastic view over the river and was well set up to make the most of this outlook. The bungalow interior was simple but spacious and comfortable with a good bathroom area. A very generous and delicious breakfast was served on the balcony of the bungalow. Staff were consistently friendly considerate and helpful, What a lovely place to stay in Luang Prabang. I look forward to returning here.
