The owner and his staff are very attentive to making sure your needs are met. The setting being down a small side street off the main drag and on the River makes it quite nice if you like a more natural setting yet close to all the city has to offer. Will stay again when in Luang Prabang!
We stayed at the Villa Merry No. 1 for 4 nights. Overall it was a pleasant stay. It sits a bit off the road, which makes for a longer walk but a quieter location. The views of the river were very nice. Staff was kind and helpful. We stayed in the family room and found it plenty big enough for our family of 5. Bathroom was a bit dark, but other than that it was ok. The breakfast was good, and the French press coffee was nice considering most Lao guest houses only have instant. It's about a 10 minute walk to the center of town, but not a difficult one. All in all we enjoyed our stay.
Great Service and Nice Room”
The service of the staff is really good, and the room is good too. The location is away from the town (10-15mins walk to the center), but if you are looking for quiet place by the river, this is an ideal place. Overall, no complain! =)
I spent a couple of night here. Everything was very nice and the staff super helpful and nice. I arrived around 9pm and started raining. I was very tired but asked if there was a restaurant around but they were happy fo fix me an instant ramen free of charge. They have also bycicles to lend for free.
This villa is pretty private. Ideal for couples. Unfortunately I've found a couple of bed bugs on the bed. Reason why my body itches a couple of days. Furthermore, the jet shower electronics weren't switch on due to safety purposes. A little turn off by it. Other than that, kudos to the owner and the staffs for being very helpful and friendly. Their hospitality was the reason why we enjoyed our stay.
ok place for the money”
owner was very helpful and friendly. the restaurant has an unobstructed view of the Nam Khan river but it is bout 10 minutes walk to the central area. room is clean with good shower pressure. but no tv if you care about that.
Amazing hotel amazing view owner speaks fluent German as described has a amazing terrace with a view of the Nam Khan river and only problem would be no mosquito nets and the shower looks cool but is pretty useless other than that best place to stay for money and within walking distance from airport !!!
Nice room in okay location near NamKhan River. Great breakfast and friendly helpful staff. Biggest negative for us is the plastic liner on bed made it uncomfortable for us and sometimes hear a bit of sound from rooms above. Overall a good value for your money.
the most comfortable hotel”
all of staff was very kind. and river view was nice as well. location is quite good. we can go to nignt market by tuk tuk in any minutes. and very quite and peaceful. all staffs speak English well. room was very clean. and hot water bath
Very comfortable stay”
We were upgraded twice after arriving here, and ended up in a room with a river view balcony. It was amazing, I could've sat out there all day! The Australian lady who greeted us was so helpful, and went out of her way to make us welcome, and to familiarise us with the town. WiFi was a little hit and miss, aircon worked fine. The small bath/shower unit was very old and most functions didn't work any more but it was still great to have a bath after travelling for so long. All rooms are very well decorated, with dark wood panels and floor. Aircon struggled a bit but the room was quite big and not sealed from outside heat that well. The bed was very comfy. We only had breakfast once here but it was very good, with a good range to choose from, and good prices. The hotel is down a quiet lane about 10 minutes walk from the centre of town, so location couldn't be better. I recommend this hotel for other budget travellers/backpackers whole heartedly.
Stayed for three nights ”
Very friendly staff, breakfast was really nice with several options. Rooms were very clean, TV wasn't very good. Although you haven't come away to watch TV, it's nice to chill with. Very blurry with one semi-watchable English channel. We had food poisoning from the street market (fish), staff tried to help change our boat ticket and asked how we were. We got upgraded to a better room as the bath didn't work properly upstairs. Bath = treat for backpackers (mainly my girlfriend!).
nice hotel with beautiful view on the river . very close to center and far away from the noise ; nice staff and interesting bedrooms with funny showers . i recommended this hotel for couple travellers looking for a bite of romance
well located far from the noise and close to the center view spectacular on the river from the bedrooms friendly staff and efficient with leave ours luggages for 15 days even didn t charge for it . owner speak german and has leaved in europe
Nice location along river”
the hotel is conveniently located just outside the main tourist area, about a 10 minute walk. the owner is exceptionally friendly as mentioned in many of the other posts (he speaks fluently in english and german (he studied in berlin). the rooms were clean and the breakfast was more than adequate. the only downside was that it was difficult to find when you only remember the name of the hotel. make sure you have the telephone number and a printed screenshot or something of that kind, as the tuk tuk drivers are clueless (this is mainly because there are 4 accoms with "merry" in the name in luang prabang...the are all owned by the owner of villa merry and as he told us merry comes from the name of his daughter!) overall a nice place.
modern shower room, river view from the window”
the room was very clean and they made up the bed for you everyday. the breakfast was fine. we could choose from 4 different things such as toasts, omelets and pancakes. the staff was friendly and helpful. it is located a bit away from the city center, but within walking distance. overall we are satisfied with our stay. however, for this price we could have also found a good place in the city center or river side.
Great rooms in a quiet location”
we booked this from another hotel in luang prabang based on the agoda reviews. it was a bit pricier than we wanted to pay, but luang prabang was more expensive than we were expecting so it was ok. breakfast was included, so that made up for us paying more. the room was decent sized with a huge bed, fridge, tv, and a big bathroom. the bathroom had a crazy shower with 4 different settings and a radio that looked like some sort of space ship. the location is very quiet and it's on the river (i think it's nam khan, the one that meets up with the mekong). while it's nice and quiet, it's not that close to the main part of town. it's probably only a 10-15 minute walk, but in october it was incredibly hot so that walk seems a lot longer. the owner was friendly and accommodating and it was very clean. it felt like staying in someone's home.
Lovely staff, clean room, location”
this is a review of merry no 2 as we turned up there by accident and were accommodated no problem. stayed in 3 hotels while we were in luang prabang, this was our favourite because it was in a good location near restaurants and bars but at the same time is not in the middle if all the tourist craziness. it's about 10 mins walk to the main street but there are some shops, bars, restaurants nearby. probably not a great choice if you have young kids with you as there is noise in the evening from the bar across the road. this stops at 11 though so you do get a good nights sleep! the receptionist/waiter was absolutely lovely and a delight to deal with,
Lovely Hotel, Owner a treat! ”
Arrived early in Luang Prabang so stayed one night here before going to the Ramayana Boutique Hotel. Arrived quite late (midnight) so finding the hotel was a bit of a problem since there are a few hotels with "Villa" and "Merry" in it! This place is situated at the end of a long driveway and overlooks the Mekong River. The owner is a real treat - advising us where to go, and even driving us himself to our other hotel the next morning! He owns a chain of guesthouses and each look clean and well looked after. The bedroom was not that spacious, but had mosquito nets, a high tech shower!, fridge and air conditioning. For the price we paid it was a gem and I would recommend it to anyone!
