                Had a three night stay here, great location near main walking street, restaurants and bars. Cleaners come in everyday without fail. Clean and comfortable room. The staff couldn't do enough for us, extremely friendly and approachable, would definitely stay here again. Breakfast was nice just a little limited with a standard fried eggs, baguette and Fruit which was fine with us anyway. Coffee was lovely! Couldn't recommend enough!

                If you're looking to save money and stay at a decent place, this was a good choice. Clean rooms, very helpful staff, good location to the Mekong and to the downtown. It is right in the middle between both so it is quiet but easy to access the town. It's close to my favorite cafe, Saffron. The hotel helped us arrange taxi's to wherever we wanted to go. Overall, I was pleased. My only complaint would be the thin walls, but ear plugs would have solved that. I would stay here again!

                Room types range from the new blocks to the old building right next door but the rooms are spotless and clean. A bit of construction was going on when i was tre. However lighting along the corridor could be improved.staff are friendly and helpful and its a no frills kind of place. Walking distance to the riverfront and to the temples, plenty of restaurants around it and easily accessible to just about everywhere.

                To Simon and the team, thank you. We really had good time staying at the Sokdee Residence. The warm welcome, and chat besides the explanation given; you guys were very helpful. The location of Sokdee is very strategic. It is within walking distance to the night market, the river (where you can go for your cruise), restaurants where you can choose from a variety of food, and also the famous Xieng Tong Vat. Rooms were clean, comfortable enough for the two of us. Guests can help themselves to the hot water, coffee and tea which are placed at the corridor. Another plus point of this hotel is that, you can wake up early to watch or participate in the alms giving ceremony. Hope to visit this place again, as it will undergo some renovation and they also have a guesthouse close which will undergo some uplifts soon.

                I booked this place for a night for my parents... my mom said the owner/staff is very nice and accommodating so, they decided to stay one more night instead of moving to the city center. Accordingly, the hotel and the room is clean (and was tidied on for the second day promptly) though there were mosquitoes on the first night it was okay on the next day. I'll recommend this place to other people and I will book this place for the family on our next trip.

                The place is clean and comfortable . Staff are really polite and helpful. The manager was really helpful with suggestions and directions. He helped me book a cab to the airport too with no extra charges. Was a great stay overall.

                Very nice place with very kind staff”

                The hotel located in old town Luang Prabang and surrounded with many local shops, restaurants and coffee shop. New room smell and decoration are good. Importantly, the staff are so kind. You can talk with them about general and interesting things in Luang Prabang. I love them so much. I'll back here again next time! :D

                Location is fantastic. Just a stone throw away to Mekong river! The river cruise or sightseeing booth is just directly behind the residence. Sight seeing places like the morning and night market is also about 5 mins away from the residence. The room is very basic though. Our residence has 6 units housed in a double storey apartment. I had the room on the upper floor and one of my friend had it on the lower floor. As the floor is made of wood, she could hear some noise when I walked around in the room. ( might need earplugs) Although there were no hair dryer or kettle in my room, our adhoc request were promptly met by the friendly staff ! They sent it to us immediately. I really loved the corridor area where they had chairs and tables for u to sit by and relax with your friends. Special thanks to Surlinda( not sure whether I get the name right). He’s always attentive to our needs always smiling and helping our ever lasting requests. Highly recommended place to stay!

                Dear Keyth and friends, Thank you very much for taking the time to write us this nice review. I'm glad to hear that you and your friends enjoyed your stay with us at Sokdee Residence. We are perfectly located on the peninsula, most of the sites are in walking distance, thank you for mentioning it. Most of the traditional buildings on the peninsula are made of wood, on the upside this makes a nice homey and traditional feeling, but as you mentioned, on the downside noise can travel. Additional items for the rooms are ordered: Kettle, Hair dryer, mini fridge, mini safe, so hopefully next month, we can reach a higher room standard. Thank you for staying with us and I'm gladly relaying your kind words to my staff, particularly to Soulinda. I hope to be able to welcome you again in the future. Kind regards, Simon Manager Sokdee Residence

                Remember that Luang Prabang is a city which is densily populated because of it's age. SO by choosing a hotel in the old quarter, you will hear chickens, dogs, etc.... It will be noisier. But in return, you will be rewarded by being close to everything. And the morning alms will pass by right in front of the hotel. The staff is amazingly nice, room is very clean. Bathroom is a little dated but no big deal.
