    Brilliant stay at this brilliant hotel. Staff we're helpful, attentive and friendly. Free use of bikes enabled us to gain a handy familiarity of Luang Prabang early on. Transfer to and from the airport meant the stay was worry free from start to end.

    The hotel is located along a quiet stretch of the Nam Khan in proximity to everything. We loved the outdoor terrace seating. The staff was always ready with a smile and was flexible and kind to help with all our requests. The breakfast was also delicious!

        Excellent location in old city. Young staff team very helpful and friendly.More pros than condefinit”
        Definitely more pros than cons. Lovely traditional old building tastefully renovated keeping dark wood interior. Had upstairs bedroom with balcony overlooking street and river Nam Khan and countryside beyond. Setting for breakfast excellent. Outside looking over river, scenic. Staff most helpful and friendly. The manager Tom willing to please including sorting out onward travel and accommodation and keeping in touch to make sure it had gone to plan. Only downside is that street could be noisy. Overall would recommend this hotel without reservation.

        Comfortable though nothing fancy, with a staff willing to go the extra mile for you. Some traffic noise in our rooms facing the well known street but not enough to keep us awake. Breakfast was simple and adequate, though we went out in search of better coffee.

        Spend 4 nights and had a really relaxed and quiet stay there. It was low season, so there were nearly no other guests. Nice rooms with a good view on the river. Good choice of breakfast which is freshly made. Staff helps you with everything (sending postcards, booking tours, taxi, ...) Will definitely stay there again.

        We chose Trioadvisor winner hotel for our trip in several countries and they were all above our expectations and Villa Ban Lakkha being one of them. We got free pick up transfer from/to the airport and the staff are friendly. The room is rather small but the wooden interior is interesting. Price is rather pricey though. Over all, great hotel.

        Beautiful river front colonial style hotel”
        Location, room with terrace, value
        It is a very nice colonial style hotel on the banks of the Khan River about 400 metres from the confluence with the Mekong. There is an alley beside the hotel which gives a short-cut up to the main street with the Phuxay temple and night market at the end, so the location is great as the riverside road is quiet. However, like most of the colonial style hotels, they are made of wood which is not soundproof so if the people in the next room are noisy, you will hear them! There is a free airport shuttle service by the hotel's tuktuk, which takes about 20 minutes.

        ok, if you've not been to luang prabang, please go! not too many places in the world where the rush takes a long holiday! no honking, no rush, just relax, and absorb the free laid back culture! a laotian friend who has lived in many cities said to me please don't change! i agree! we atayed at this wonderful place for 6 days! coming from a rush culture, it was a dramatic change of pace for us! but oh, did we need it! recharged my batteries. i write from chiangmai now, but seriously i prefer luang prabang. the staff warmed my heart. they are smiling all the time. always obliging! the indestructible rock, the odd name for their restaurant, served gorgeous breakfasts every morning by the deck overlooking the namkhan river (a tributory of the mekong). loved the scene around this place (in fact the whole city) we highly recommend this place, and villa ban lakkham. the only complaint is our neighbour fell asleep with her tv on, and kept us awake on night! walls are kind of thin! so whoopie quietly please! hahahaha

        Overall this place was a win for us. The property is centrally located to most of what you want to do. It had western amenities, nice staff, prompt laundry. we paid $74 for two nights in Dec. the only complaint i had was i requested for a quiet room, and our room was on the first floor facing the street. It was definitely not the quietest. but having breakfast on our own little porch helped ease the painful sleepless nights.

        Not great, I wouldn't recommend it. On the day I arrived, the plug in the bathroom sink was stuck down so they had to get somebody to come and fix it when I went out, then during the night the air con stopped working which meant the room was incredibly hot and it was very difficult to sleep. I got up the next morning to have a shower and it turned out the shower was broken! Two guys tried to fix it but neither managed so in the end they moved me to another room, however, they didn't apologise for the inconvenience and weren't helpful in moving my stuff. Additionally, when I came to check out they told me that I had to pay, even though I'd already pre-paid through Agoda, and I was told by two separate people that I still needed to pay for the taxi they had arranged from the airport even though I'd paid their colleague the day before. Not sure if the staff just genuinely don't communicate with one another or if they were deliberately trying to scam me. Similarly, I wanted to go to Kuang Si Falls one day and asked for help arranging a minivan to pick me up - the price they quoted me was double that which several tour places in town had said so in the end I just arranged it myself. The hotel itself is well located but, given how small Luang Prabang is, you'd be hard pushed to find accommodation that isn't central. Other than that, it wasn't great, and the rooms are incredibly dingy.

        We enjoyed our stay at the VBL. We booked a deluxe room and were glad we did. The bed was really comfy and our second floor balcony overlooking the Nam Khan was a great place to chill out. There's some awesome restaurants around too. The room was a bit overcrowded with furniture and the bathrooms are looking a bit dated, but this was a comfortable place to stay in a top location.
