Stayed there for one night. The room wasn't that clean, a dirty towel lay on the floor. Water was dripping from they ceiling. There was a used toothbrush between the sink and the wall. Took forever until warm water was coming in the shower. The host was quite rude. Beds were quite good, but it didn't make us feel comfortable....

This place was great! I arrived in Luang Prabang and was shown the way to the GuestHouse. It is very easy to find and the location is incredibly convenient. A few metres from the Mekong River, 5 minute walk to the nightmarket and surrounded by places to eat. The bed was comfortable in the dorm with plenty of space and...

So we arrived off the slow boat and the manager of Sokdee and his staff were waiting to persuade people back, offering cheese,meats and bread and some booze - after 2 days on a boat this sounded great!We get to the place and there is a shambles - they didn't have enough room for all of the guests they promised...

Met staff of Sok Dee Guesthouse in town after the slowboat and all seemed promising but there was great confusion upon arrival as certain rooms were not available and the English speaking staff and owner were nowhere to be seen. The American owner seemed more keen to get back to town then help the situation - however 4 of us...

The hotel staff was excellent and courteous, the room was clean, and the morning breakfasts were excellent. he hotel was very, very conveniently located to shopping, the night market, restaurants, tour buses, temples, and bike rental stores. Altogether an unexpectedly nice hotel at a remote city. Would not hesitate to recommend, all things considered.

The Sokdee residence is a family run business and separate from the Sokdee guesthouse. The guesthouse is a bit cheaper and great for travel on a budget. If you want to stay at the residence, the rooms upstairs are quite nice with balconies. Clean rooms, and bathrooms. They can also get you set up with whatever you need in town,...

To be fair, the beds were comfortable and the rooms were quite nice. The price was pretty good, however they try to lure you in by saying you get free alcohol... this is bullocks! Also the man that seems to be the manager is a bit of a douche bag and seems pretty creepy.

Was so stoked with our stay here after the long boat trip. Picked up right from the boat stop and bus transfer all included, then we were a five minute walk from the night market and the bar strip.
