We spent 3 nights in Luan Prabang and this location was really perfect!!!! Great location, nice room, friendly owner! I would to came back soon! The hotel is situated in the main road of the town and, early in the morning, you have just to go out and waiting the monks passing to ask offers from the lao peole!!! Really...

Just like most reviewers said - it is comfortable, clean and has everything a regular traveler needs. I also liked that it is located a little away from the main drag. Rooms have distinct Lao style, modern amenities, also helpful and nice staff. Ideal place for someone like me who spends most of the time outside, yet appreciates good level...

Arriving in Luang Prabang itself was enlightening but, what made it that bit more special was the Ljb smooth hotel (xienthong). Everything a westerner requires without compromising on the well kept look and laosian feel. Exceptional staff, attentive and helpful, Wi-fi, news and movie channels, great shower and bathroom area and tasteful dark wood furniture. Luang Prabang is one not...

They have two locations so make sure you know where you are going. The one we stayed at was amazing and a great surprise. The rooms are great and with free tea and coffee all the time why would you not stay here.

I'm sad to say I'm leaving the LJB smooth (Aham) hotel after four ays tomorrow. The hotel is a real find in Laos for really cheap. This sort of hotel woud cost you 4 times as much in Europe. The rooms are very traditional Laos style with high wooden ceilings and the room we have has a fairly big private...

This hotel was at the very quiet end of Th. Sisavangvong - the main street. Room was quite spacious for the two of us and was on the first floor, with a small balcony overlooking the street. The beds were very comfortable with good pillows. There was no restaurant attached to the hotel, so there was no breakfast. However, there...

Loved the four poster bed and huge showerhead. The man on reception was really nice and very helpful on suggestions on where to visit on our motorbike (which he also arranged). Only bad point was that the water pressure was too low to make the most of the huge showerhead... seems to be a Luang Prabang problem rather than specific...

The manager allowed a male guest to bring a male 'friend" to the new LJB Smooth hotel, and I was subjected to the sounds of their lovemaking through the thin walls from midnight until 4 AM. I'll never stay at LJB Smooth Hotel again.

we just found this hotel having turned up the day before with no where to stay and this caught our eye. We were shown 2 rooms to choose from and we choose the upstairs room which had a big wooden veranda/sitting area infront of it. This was shared by the 4 rooms upstairs and had a great view of the...

We stayed at the Aham LJB Smooth hotel for 5 nights over New Year. The owner and the front desk guys were attentive, gracious and spoke excellent English. The service was excellent and the rooms spotlessly clean. It has a Laoation ambience which after all is what you travel for. Both of our rooms were a good size and our...
