heritage guest house”
Comfortable rooms in one of Luang Prabangs first guest houses. Nice views of the Mekong from upstairs rooms, but busy minor road outside. Close to the centre of town. Staff helpful and friendly; most speak some English. Good breakfasts.

Excellent”
Lovely, traditional Lao guesthouse, a variety of rooms. Nice location, close to river and many sites. I would stay here again. It is a bit noisy on the road in the morning, a bit of a downside, otherwise good.

Great location overlooking the Mekong. Easy walk to everything: Nam Kan, Wats, night markets”
Spacious rooms, stayed in upstairs with balcony. Room serviced daily. Breakfast eggs fresh fruit, toast or French bread, tea and coffee anytime. Cross the road, catch any boat for a river cruise or watch the sunset on sunset cruise. Friendly smiling Lao people will make your trip special. Try the all you can eat 15,000kip Buffett at the night market with a Lao beer-great value and delicious!

Great place”
Stayed for one month in an upstairs room which was clean spacious and had a lovely balcony looking straight out to the Mekong. It was cleaned every day which was nice. Great location handy to everything but still quiet enough. Staff were friendly. Wifi was excellant. I will definitely stay there again

Accommodating Staff, Good Value”
The staff was very accommodating. I got to LP super early at 5:00a and there werent any rooms available at the time so they contacted their sister hotel and for half the cost for a day ($10 USD) i was able to stay at the other hotel until my actual checkin time. Location was very quiet and away from the loudness but close to walk everywhere. It was directly in front of the mekong so I was able to walk across to see the beautiful sunsets each day. The AC broke my last day there so I used the fan and it was okay. The showers need to be upgraded as it was a shower head inside a bathtub and the water would spill out. The room wasnt fully enclosed from bugs so the first night I got plenty of bug bites. i also wasnt sure if there were bed bugs because i couldnt see them but the linens made me itchy. There wasnt a daily room service. Dont expect a lot from this hotel although It is a nice place to crash while exploring and with a small family

A good friendly place right by the Mekong”
Great location, Size of room, Good breakfast.
Sayo River has a great location facing the Mekong, towards the tip of the peninsula, within very easy walking distance of all the main sights and the night market. Our room was large and airy, and the bed very comfortable. The breakfasts were big, with eggs cooked as we like them and good coffee. We thoroughly enjoyed our 8 night stay, and would definitely recommend the guest house to other travellers. As with everywhere, there is still potential for improvement, and we hope the management will note the following points. A proper security box (which Agoda lists as a feature) in every room is essential. Being shown a wooden box, with the suggestion we should buy our own padlock, was not a good start to our stay. They did find us a padlock and key, but it must be a priority for them to install the proper item. Considering the size of our room (S03), there would have been a lot of space for a wardrobe and a chest of drawers, but we had neither. Being able to unpack and store clothes for a stay of our length is important. They need to find a way to stop the shower flooding the bathroom floor, something we achieved using the small hand towels, but it’s poor design. Biggest issue by far – breakfast starts way too late. It’s nominally 7:30, but a lot of tours pick up at 8:00am. If you could actually sit down and start to eat your breakfast at 7:30 prompt that would be OK, but they only start thinking about preparing it then, and it isn’t served until about 7:50 or 7:55, so you have to eat in a hurry. Also there is one young woman who arrives on her motorbike every day at 7:30, then just sits down and watches TV while the young guys work. We don’t know who she is, but she completely ignores the guests waiting for their food, she is lazy and useless, and creates a very poor image for the guest house. She should be told to do some work, or watch TV some place else.
