This hotel has a great location near the river. We loved that there were local families living opposite and children playing nearby. Our room was spacious with great aircon, a jacuzzi bath, great wifi, fresh towels daily and lots of hot water. Breakfast was plentiful and staff were pleasant and obliging. Really all you could hope for!!

I have stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. The stay was pleasant enough for 4 stars. The hotel is near Kong river, just a road and a building away (blocked by Luang Prabang River Lodge 2). It is also near Joma Bakery as they are in the same small street. It is a few hundred meters away from Prachaniyom...

On a charming street within sight of the river, Villa Pumalin sits with many other guesthouses within walking distance to the night market, river restaurants, and alms giving. We had requested a deluxe room upstairs based on recommendations about the lower floor being darker. The upstairs wasn't available, so we were given a deluxe room downstairs. Turned out better because...

This is the third year in a row that I have stayed at the Pumalin. It may be overpriced (The walk-in rate is certainly overpriced) but it is so conviently located. Many inexpensive guest houses are located up and down the same narrow street and also along the next 3 parallel streets. For people who do not have advance reservations...
