    Nocknoy Lanexang GuesthouseI’m not sure whether we stayed at the ‘Nocknoy’ but at a separate guesthouse further down the street behind this one. The rooms were not like these pictures, but they were beautiful and tastefully decorated. Spacious and clean. We still had breakfast at the ‘Nocknoy’ which was okay as far as eggs & bread go. Fantastic location down a lovely quiet street full of guesthouses - close to the town centre and very close to the river. Cafes and motorbike rentals nearby. We did some laundry at the hotel but unfortunately they lost one of my tshirts, which isn’t the end of the world but they refused to acknowledge it and we didn’t get an apology.

    Very good”

    There was a super sweet woman at check in. The room was really small and narrow but had good storage. It was an Asian bathroom, water gets everywhere. The sink is wayyyy too close to toilet like one foot. The room felt oppressive and I didn't want to stay there long, it was clean though. They had good movies on tv in english. There were too many ants, both big and microscoptic. Mosquitos. Another bug im not sure of. They provided water bottles, soap, shampoo, coffee, kettle, a good but simple breakfast, there is no refrigerator.

    Excellent location,a few minutes walk from the morning & night market but is quite enough to allow you ti have your beauty sleep Breakfast was filling & the owners esp ms.pau was kind enough to accede to your request to have an oriental instead of western breakfast.

    A good option in expensive town”

    One unfortunate part of Luang Prabang's charm is the number of visitors and the ability to charge high rates. Nocknoy is a guesthouse in a great location. It is run by a lovely young couple and has a nice feel. Our double room was at the back upstairs. It was a decent size but there is nowhere to put much. Bed was very comfortable and pillows soft. Bathroom is big Laos style with hot water as long as you don't have it coming out too fast. Air conditioner and Wifi good. Free breakfast was nothing spectacular but sufficient. The room was thoroughly cleaned. It is pricey for a basic guesthouse but this cheaper options will probably disappoint.

    The woman running this guesthouse is extremely friendly and speaks decent English. I was greeted with a huge smile, a welcome fruit plate and fresh squeezed juice. The property is very clean, the rooms are serviced daily and there are several options for the sizeable, free breakfast. Great central location. My room was small and the mattress a bit saggy but it had everything I needed for a comfortable 3 nights: lots of plugs, bedside lamp, water, coffee with kettle etc. Laundry is done for a very reasonable 90,000 kip per kilo. This was my fourth stay in Luang Prabang, all at different guesthouses, and this was the nicest and best value for money.

    Shady practice ”

    We booked this guest house but did not stay there. They have another guesthouse next door where we stayed. I understand occasional errors or over bookings may happen and then it is good to have a back up. However reading other reviews it seems a regular occurrence and the fact that no acknowledgement of this was ever given to us makes me think this is a shady practice by the owners. I believe they are operating 2 or more properties and trading off the good name of one. While not the end of the world I don’t think it is fair. People choose where to stay and spend their money and they should expect to stay there. We actually stayed in a place called Som Jith guest house. Reviews are much less complimentary with multiple reports of bed bugs although in the interest of fairness we did not experience any issues and the room was comparable to what we had booked. My principles say Som Jith was ok but not where I chose or paid to stay.

    We had a triple room with a very pleasant balcony on the quiet street. The room was small (not much space for the luggage) however. The location is amazing as it is a few hundreds of meters from the royal palace. The staff is also friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the sheets and towels could be more thoroughly washed.

    Avoid ”

    We stayed at this hotel and it’s sibling hotel villa le tam tam . The room was Ok, with working air conditioning and a decent included breakfast, but could use some cleaning. The hotel itself is alright but the reason for this terrible review was that we had a huge issue when it came to the bike rental company that this hotel used. We caused a small amount of damage to our bike and the owner wanted an absorbent amount of money to fix it. Our friends who had identical damage plus a broken mirror were only charged $25 USD while we were charge over quadruple the amount. The hotel owners did nothing to help us in this scenario and allowed us to get royally ripped off - I assume they get a kick back. Moral of the story the hotel itself is fine, just refuse the scooter rental place

    Very welcoming stay at a great location”

    The lady at the reception was very smiley and we felt genuinely welcomed the moment we stepped into the hotel. The lady was just as cheerful, if not more, whenever we saw her. She was also very patient and helpful when we needed a bit of help with directions and transport. The hotel is conveniently located in the city centre and both the night market and morning market are just a few minutes' walk away. If you wish for a stroll along the Mekong River, it is, again, just a stone's throw away. The room was basic but it was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. The complimentary breakfast, which included a sandwich/pancake (strongly recommend to try the pancake!) + a juice/tea + a plate of fruit, was very satisfying. Everything was just beyond our expectation especially with the price considered. We had a very pleasant stay there and would highly recommend it to anyone travelling to Luang Prabang on a budget.

    This place was a little haven for us! Greeted with a welcome drink and fruit and told all about Luang Prabang- really nice touch. Room was beautifully clean and really well looked after. The best thing about this place is the staff. The lady who runs reception and breakfast and pretty much everything in the Guest House is so lovely and welcoming. She really cares and takes pride in the place and clearly loves speaking to travellers and has passion for her job. We extended our stay and would stay here again without hesitation if we were in the area again.

    Great Location, great service!”

    This is a budget guesthouse, so I did not have very high expectations in the first place. The location is perfect, only about 300 m to post office, night market, food stops, convenience stores. So it is very convenient. They provided breakfast, which was simple, but sufficient. The front desk manager and his staff were very friendly and polite and provided decent service like money changing, laundry, bus ticketing. We, however got the room (#1) that is right next to the reception, literally at the front lobby area of the guesthouse, so privacy wise maybe not so great, but the guests were all very quiet so we did not get disturbed much at night. The room felt a little damp and the towels, although clean, felt like they weren't dry enough. The bathroom, also cleaned every day, still had a musty smell, but bearable. If you're looking for flash, lavish rooms, this is not it, but if you're looking for a simple guesthouse to sleep, shower and get a good night's rest, this would do the trick.
