    Overall nice but could use some improvements
    The location of the guest house is slightly outside the main town. They have shuttle service in the morning and later in the day which we made use of. Didn't really like the garden view rooms. The floor boards had huge holes allowing mosquito and insects to come in and the fixtures and overall decor were also far from the price we paid. There was also no noise insulation. There is a tiny mirror in the bathroom which my husband and I couldn't both see our faces depending on the location of the mirror. I asked the staff if they had bigger mirrors in any other room and the guy flat out lied to me and said no. Apart from that the staff was really good. Especially the women at the desk. She helped us with restaurant reservations and was always there to help with a smile. We upgraded to the river view room which was great. I highly recommend paying extra and going for his room type. The floors didn't have holes, the fixtures were better and there was a slightly bigger mirror and the overall vibe was better. The breakfast was fantastic. Suggest they add a few more options for shuttle in the afternoon and install full length mirror.

    The best place I’ve stayed!
    Fabulous! This is a family owned place with great service, friendly and helpful staff, a great ambiance, and a superb breakfast. They have free bikes, and a shuttle into town (which would be a 20 minute walk). It is in a quiet neighborhood, so gelato for sleeping. The bungalows are in a wonderful garden. We upgraded to a river view, but I’m sure the garden view rooms are also great. Each has a balcony/porch. Breakfast is delivered to the balcony or to a terrace overlooking the river, at a time you specify. They have put in a new pool across the street - it looks pristine (but we didn’t have time to go in it). This place is great!

    Wonderful stay. Excellent staff
    Hotel was wonderful. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is wonderful. Our room was comfortable, and the guesthouse felt secure.The pool is very nice. It is located a little bit away from the main part of town, but we walked there a couple of times and it was not bad, which would have been even easier with the bicycles (free to rent) or guest house shuttle (free transportation at set times). Staff is helpful arranging plans/activities. I highly recommend the hotel and would definitely stay there again.

    Peace & tranquility just out of town with a Pool
    From the minute I was picked up with free transfer at the airport until check out the staff were impeccable. Really conhesive team who organized tours for me, provided their free bikes to ride to town, sorted my laundry and even let me be the 1st guest to swim in the not yet officially opened pool, that’s right they have a pool. I usually like to be in the center of town so was hesitant to book this but the appeal of being in a river bungalow was too strong of a pull. I’m super happy with my decision, I’m not young or fit but the bike ride to town was easy and really enjoyable, there are regular shuttles in their comfortable cars into town if you prefer. The peace and tranquility of the location was just what I needed after a hectic time in Saigon. Breakfast was average and plentiful but it’s free so I’m not complaining, and they deliver it to your balcony when you request, slip out of bed to soak in the morning view of the Nam Khan River with fresh warm baguette. It really was a treat staying with this team.

    Best place to stay in Luang Prabang
    We stayed for four nights in a sweet bungalow with a garden view. The property and gardens were beautiful, overlooking the Mekong River and with several lovely outdoor places to sit and enjoy the serene setting.The staff were attentive, friendly, and kind. Breakfasts were delicious and could be delivered to our room or to outdoor dining areas--at a time that we could specify each day. A shuttle service was available to deliver guests to and from the town center, or the airport. One day, the shuttle took me to a clinic in town for medical attention! I appreciated the opportunity to talk with the staff at the desk or in the shuttle, and to learn about Laotian culture and the special features of Luang Prabang from them. Of all the places that we stayed during a 6 week trip in SE Asia, Thongbay was my favorite.

    The rooms and grounds are beautiful and very comfortable. The staff were attentive, helpful, good english, engaging. Loved that they would serve us our scrumptious breakfast on our balcony overlooking the river, and delicious dinner that we ordered at the restaurant. Shuttles to town and

    Fantastic Hotel !!!
    I can only give this hotel a 10. The ambience Of Thongbay is phenomenal. Our room was on the river with a private balcony. Breakfast is served every morning on the balcony at the exact time you request. The breakfast is fantastic as well. The owners were very personable and always so accommodating. We asked for a late checkout and they agreed right away. Will certainly return on our next trip to Laos.
