After an overnight seated bus from Vientiane(thunderstorms, rain, fallen trees, breakdown, morning mists), followed by a short ride in an open taxi I arrived here at just after six in the morning.

The room was clean and comfy and you had plenty of room. Good bathroom and shower. Wifi didn't work much in the room but there were chairs just outside where it worked fine. Free tea and coffee available anytime. If you like it white, grab a mini carton of milk from the shop across the road and keep it in...

What a beautiful guesthouse in a beautiful place in the world. This family owned place was amazing.

We had a choice of a $40/night room on the bottom floor but chose the $25/night room without the fridge and tv on the second floor and were very happy - room number 2. (there was a fridge in the hallway that we used and that worked for us) Despite being right on the busy street of restaurants and tour...

The place is ok, but why would you pay double the amount you can pay elsewhere?. I stayed there one night, I moved out the next morning because in the building next to the guesthouse there were people talking loud all night until 4 AM. The first place I found (Lao Lu Guesthouse) was much nicer than Phounsab and the...

We stayed 4 nights at this guesthouse, and really enjoyed the atmosphere. You nearly miss it on the main street but then walk into a lovely courtyard.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are the best kept secret in accommodation in Luang Prabang. Do you want everything Luang Prabang has to offer to be easy access for you? Do you want a safe, quiet, clean and serene room to come back to every day? No need to compromise. Our location is second to none, yet the guesthouse rooms are situated in a beautiful quiet courtyard away from the main road. Everything you wish to do and see, is at your fingertips here (No need to deal with Tuk Tuk drivers): * Early morning monk alms parade is on the main road just in front of the guesthouse. * all the travel agencies to book activities (elephant rides, sight seeing, rent motorcycle, bicycle etc) are next door. * All the restaurants are next door to the left of us. * Lao message parlours and spas are to the left of us, including wonderfull Lao herbal steam sauna (after 4:30pm). * Royal palace, theater and Phousi mountain are to the right of us. * Ferry to cross Makong river and hike (or bicycle) to temple with magical views of Luang Prabang is one block away. * Night market entrance is to our right. Including Fruit shakes, crepes, sandwiches. * Two mini-marts are infront of guesthouse, for your convenience. (open to 11:00pm) * Can park motorcycle and bicycle inside safe guesthouse courtyard. Though the entrance of the guesthouse is on the main road, a long corridor leads to the beautiful and serene courtyard, where your rooms are in total silence.

“The back building is quieter, but the noise would be of town life, so I wouldn't think that a problem anyway. Always, upstairs is a help in getting fewer mosquitoes.”
