    Loved this hotel, great location, great staff”

    Great location, beautifully refinished old style building, incredibly warm and friendly staff.

    Ammata Guest House is a beautifully refinished old style building, in a terrific location in Luang Prabang. You enjoy the peacefulness of a quiet street while being close enogh to walk to everything you might want to see. Although there is no restaurant affiliated with the guest house, there are so many restaurant options in town, it doesn't matter. The morning prcession of the Monks passes right outside the front door, so you can roll out of bed at 6am and not miss it. Note that the only downside to this is that there is a bit of hustle and bustle on the street around that hour, not a lot, but enough that i generallly stirred from sleep at that hour because of it. Not a big deal. The neighbourhood is so quiet in the evening that i was going to bed early each night anyway. I would like to make special mention of the staff at Ammata. A young man named Set (spelling?) was managing the desk during our stay and he was a warm and graciuos host wlling to spend a long time answering all our questions about Laotian life. Rooms were beautiful and clean. I would stay again in an instant! In fact, i wish i could live there!

    Superb clean, good location and value buy

    A very clean guesthouse which is well located in the old town of luang prabang. Mini bar / tea making facilities are not provided in the room but at the lobby of the guesthouse. No breakfast could be a setback for those who are first day in luang prabang. However for those who enjoy and like to explore the town, there are lots of nice local food in the town at affordable price.

    There is not much I can say about Ammata Guesthouse but that everything was perfect. Very nice rooms, quiet location with easy access to all the temples in the old town, very friendly and helpful staff. The guesthouse does not serve breakfast but there is a very nice and tidy place just accross the street. If I ever go back to Luang Prabang Ammata Guesthouse will certainly be my first choice.

    A wonderful Guest House!”

    The rooms were clean, the staff was very friendly and the location was fantastic!

    We are a family of four with two teenagers and this was our first visit to Laos. We had two upstairs rooms in the Ammata Guest House and it is a delightful hotel in the heart of Luang Prabong. The rooms were perfect, the showers were warm and coffee, tea and fruit were always available. There is a delightful local restaurant across the street where we ate and played board games. And, it is only a short walk to other restaurants, shops, the night market and all local Wats. The hotel staff were very friendly and available to help with all our questions and they even provided transport to the airport. We highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again for all future visits to Luang Prabong.

    Very comfortable and accessible guesthouse”

    Great location; friendly and helpful staff; decently priced

    Ammata Guest House was very nicely located and comfortable, considering the pricing--it's not directly at the center of town but is a very short walk away from the main street, and its proximity to one of the temples means it is very accessible for those interested in watching or participating in the morning alms ceremony. The rooms were basic but comfortable--the AC worked fine; the bed was comfortable; and the bathroom and room were both clean and kept clean by the staff. The business is a family with a couple local employees--everyone was friendly and helpful, whether handing the check-in or answering questions about suggestions for food, picking up allergy medicine or other necessities downtown, fun tourist suggestions, etc. All of the desk staff spoke English fairly well, and there were no communication difficulties. The only downsides I experienced were that the water wasn't quite as hot as I would have liked for showers and that the noise from temple ceremonies starting at 4 in the morning woke me up a few times, as I'm a light sleeper. That being said, the extremely friendly and helpful staff and the ease of access made this guesthouse an enjoyable pick--my colleague has stayed here twice before, and I would definitely consider staying at Ammata again on my next trip through Luang Prabang.

    Clean, pretty, but slightly overpriced”

    Clean, beautiful building, nice location

    I stayed here for two nights in building 2 in a room with a double bed. Pros: - The guesthouse was very clean and the wood finishings were beautiful. - The location on a quiet street on the peninsula was excellent. - The staff was happy to let me switch to a room upstairs when I asked. Cons: - Doors and walls are very thin--I could pretty much hear a conversation happening next door. Initially I was put in a room on the first floor right outside the front desk and could hear the conversations happening outside. - Doesn't feel that secure. The only lock for your room is a doorknob lock. When you leave, they want you to leave your key at the front desk. But the front desk is often not attended (the person is nearby but not at the desk) so most of the time I had to just reach over the desk to grab my key. I could see all of the other keys there and therefore also knew which rooms had guests but were currently unattended. I felt particularly uncomfortable about this when I was initially put in a room on the first floor right by the front door/desk. That said, maybe this is true of many places in Luang Prabang so it's not that valid of a complaint. - Wi-Fi was unusably slow. Overall, I enjoyed my stay here but felt as though 50 USD/night was a little too much for a small room in a beautiful building with very basic amenities. Although maybe Luang Prabang has just gotten more expensive.

    We had a wonderful time at Ammata guest house and thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Luang Prabang. Such a charming, beautiful city. The monk procession, around sunrise, for morning alms comes down directly the street of the guesthouse. Highly recommend getting up early to experience this. Good size bathroom and twin beds comfortable. You won't be disappointed staying here. We stayed in the newer building.

    quiet

    i like the location on a quiet street in the old town. the hotel does not provide breakfast, which is unusual in luang prabang, although there are plenty of restaurants within a block or two. no t.v. which for some is a plus. the wifi is located in building two which is across the street from building one, and was not good in my room. bathroom was ok. good bed linen. i thought it was a bit expensive for what it offered.

    My friend and not I stayed in the hotel and she said that she liked it even though the rooms are quiet small and empty but as it is not a 5 star resort, this is totally ok. The location is excellent and there is plenty of restaurants around. For people that are planning an active vacation in Luang Prabang and will be outside the hotel most of the time anyway, this hotel is perfect.

    clean, peaceful, near centre

    Very good stay with friendly helpful hosts and staff. Rooms have the basics but the bed was comfy and the room was charming. We were in Bldg 1 second floor, and found wifi worked better in the foyer of Bldg 2 diagonally across the road. The monks' procession is directly outside both frontages along the street - make sure you wake up by 6am at least one morning to watch this quietly from the second floor. Magical. Staff taught me a number of Lao greetings etc which was charming. In the foyer, there is coffee /loose green tea (just don't drink dregs)to make and bananas available to eat. This guesthouse is right between the two rivers and just around the corner from the main street of the old town, yet it is very quiet. NB Take your shoes off before you enter. Thin towels. Bottled water supplied every day. The friendly owner will collect you or take you back to airport in his doublecab ute for US$10 a trip which is helpful when you don't know what to do. However, tuktuks don't take long and are cheaper. We were collected at the airport so we knew where to go, but returned by tuktuk. Fascinating place with so many great cafes and restaurants. Would love to return.

    Comfortable but not the best value”

    Great location

    We stayed in the Ammata Guesthouse (Building 1) in a double air con room for three nights at a rate of £ per night. We were impressed on arrival by the warmth of our welcome and the look and feel of the accommodation which is clean and has lovely wooden floors. Over the course of our stay we concluded that the accommodation was expensive for what we received. There was no television in the room, the mattress had some broken springs and the internet connection was poor. The toilet paper provided was really poor and came apart in hand (and anywhere else!) when used. None of these problems were significant enough to be cause for complaint but they did undermine the overall value of our stay. The guesthouse is really well located for all that Luang Prabang has to offer, and you can watch the monks receiving their alms from 0600. The staff were friendly and helpful, and we did enjoy our stay; nonetheless, we could enjoyed more for our money elsewhere.

    Be aware of ongoing renovation”

    The room is very small, not 20 square meters even close as stayed on Agoda. They are having an ongoing renovation of their second house that is parallel to the house where we had stayed. Because of that, the smell of construction was very strong during our check-in in the evening. Luckily they had stopped the renovation on the second day, so the smell became almost unnoticeable. The guesthouse is located in the heart of old city which is very convenient to walk around the city. Personally, the old city is beautiful place, but everything is overpriced (Laos is itself is not cheap place to travel as we discovered and Luang Prabang was the most expensive place during our trip).
