        Superb clean little guesthouse”

        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.

        Beautiful Heritage Hotel in LP Old Town”

        Beautiful Rooms, Good Service

        Great building with beautiful wood flooring and furnishings. Staff were very friendly and helpful. They did manage to give away the room type that was reserved and we ended up with two beds instead of one, but other than that the staff were very helpful. As with most places on the "Alms Circuit" expect a wake up chime from the nearby temple and a fair bit of noise around 6am everyday as the monks collect alms (which is nice to experience). There is at least 20 tourists to each monk, which is why it is so noisy. This only applies to rooms facing the street.

        Everything I expected”

        Lovely wood trim

        Having read previous reviews I selected this hotel as I needed a place "downtown." This is a perfect hotel if you're arriving from upriver i.e from the north. It's about a 2 block walk from where the boat let us off. All aspects were as expected and enjoyed the hot shower after a long boat ride. We were allowed to leave our luggage here for safekeeping for later pick-up in the afternoon. All the "staff" of the family were very friendly.

        THE Place to stay”

        Its owners - Thu and Noi ; spacious rooms; excellent air-con; free inet - both wfi and LAN; lovely garden

        Could not ask for a better place to stay. I stayed in the newer of the buildings where the rooms are large and have a bath as well as shr. The water pressure was v. good. There is no restaurant, but a perfectly good one is across the road. The rooms and foyer are kept beautifully clean; there are free bananas, coffee and tea making facilites in the foyer. The owners are just the best! Thu speaks fairly good English; while his wife, Noi, has studied in Australia and her English is excellent. I had a brilliant room upstairs; but,unfortunately, I fell down the last 2 steps about an hour after checking in and damaged my foot so that I couldn't walk and my shoulder as well. Thu and Noi kept saying 'sorry' as if it were somehow their fault. I was the clumsy one. Thu took me to the pharmacy, then doctor, then hospital for xrays, back to the doctor, then to a place to buy crutches, and made sure I got some food. They also moved me to a vacant down stairs room. As i could not even cross the road the next day, they got me the menu, took my order over and the lovely lady from the restaurant brought me the food. I will certainly be staying there again when I return as soon as I can. It was worth being away for only a couple of days, to meet these ppl and get a feel for the place.

        A bit over-priced for what it is.”

        For the facilities, service and location, we found this hotel to be quite over-priced, but then a lot of accommodation in Luang Prabang is expensive in comparison to other parts of Asia. The room was big enough but the bathroom lighting was so dark it was difficult to see anything. There were also no towel rails or hooks anywhere which was annoying. The staff are pleasant enough but all seem very new and their English is limited. The housekeeping also just made the beds but did not replace the towels or change the bins daily. The location is nice, very close to the Mekong and a temple so the monks will go directly past the hotel when they collect their daily Alms at sunrise each day. It's quite a walk to main 'bar area' but it's pleasant enough if you want to walk along by the river.

        Gorgeous guesthouse in great location”

        This is the second time I have stayed at the Ammata Guest House. The location is perfect (right in the middle of the old part of town but on a quieter street) and the rooms have a beautiful "old-world" charm with their high ceilings and wood floors. The balcony porch is a great place to watch the monks on their alms walk. Breakfast is served in the garden and is fresh and tasty.

        Location, Hospitality, Daily room service

        The hotel is in a quite neighborhood yet close to everything. My room has a window with view of the road but the motor sound is rare. Sitting and drinking free coffee at the balcony in front of my room watching the locals passing by is so relaxing. The wooden building is not good at keeping noise inside though. One night, there were guests from the most powerful country in Asia next to my room and it was like they were shouting into my ears.

        Clean, comfortable, centrally located

        This is a pleasant guesthouse, spread across two small buildings diagonally across the street from each other. Everything in the "old town" lies within easy walking distance. Rooms do not include breakfast, but dining options are close at hand. One caveat: rooms I have been assigned are very small. Two people sharing would be tripping over each other. Also, no refrigerator--and WiFi is weak.

        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.

        Located in the quieter part of the old town, it is conveniently located close to nice cafes and restaurants along both the rivers and the main street.

        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.

        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.
