There's very little to add to the reviews. We loved our river view bungalow (204) and having the delicious breakfast served on our balcony or the undercover deck at your nominated time was so lovely. Whenever we walked through the gates after a day out, it felt just like putting on a comfortable pair of slippers....aaaaahhhhhh. We stayed for 6...

We were looking for secluded, laid back but comfortable accommodation in luang Prabang and stumbled on this place. Out of town but still within acceptable walking distance and if you take note of their complimentary drop-off and pick-up schedule an easy alternative. Bikes also available. Staff very friendly, all of them. Made us welcome and instantly at home. Separate bunkhouse...

We spent 3 nights in this guesthouse with a bungalow-Mekong view. I strongly recommend this guesthouse. Prices are very reasonable compared to the service/view/comfort. For those who might say that it is a bit far away from the center of Luang Prabang, staff is putting a lot of efforts in scheduling regular shuttles to drop you at the center and...

Excellent value for the low season. Location is away from town however free shuttle service provided. Firstly we are welcomed by extremely friendly, English speaking staff with complimentary welcome drinks, felt warmed after long & exhausted trip from Vang vien. We love the calmness and the natural settings of the guest house. Talk to the receptionist, he is a very...

I really enjoyed the stay and the friendly service! The location is perfect nearby the river apart from all noise, nevertheless downtown is easy to reach with TukTuk! This place was perfect for relaxing after hard travel days before!

Thongbay Guesthouse does it right. From the greeting on arrival, attentive service, and desire to make your Lao experiences memorable, the staff at the guesthouse manage to provide all you need to thoroughly enjoy Luang Prabang. The location, although a bit of a walk to center of the town, offers a nice break from the faster pace you find there....

Lovely bungalows overlooking the river or beautiful gardens, this place is best in class in Luang Prabang! The staff are incredibly helpful, speak good English and are always available. Breakfast is brought to your balcony at a time that suits you, and will keep you going all day! Perfect place to sip a beer as the sun sets over the...

Although we stayed in this Guesthouse already a couple of months ago I still feel the urge to say thank you for an amazing time! Everything was absolutely wonderful: rooms, breakfast and most of all the people working there and the warm welcome we received. It definitely was one of the best guesthouses we stayed in during our 6 weeks...

This place is great. I stayed here once by myself several years ago and it was such a unique and wonderful experience that I went back last month. The bungalows are great, cute little traditional style huts with amazing views. Love spending time on the spacious balcony enjoying the beautiful views of the river (get one of the waterfront unit)....

Arriving late our first night after a very long bus ride, Thongbay was a welcome oasis. And being here for a four night stay was quite relaxing. Our riverside bungalow, which faced the Nam Khan River, was quite large for the two of us. Even though there is no a/c, the two fans kept it comfortable at night. We even...
