We pre-booked this based on the reviews here and were not disappointed. It's an attractive well-built building with good-quality clean rooms and lovely dark shiny wood. First time round we stayed three nights in a road-facing room so we could see the monks pass from our balcony, although we ended up going downstairs to watch from a respectful distance. Breakfast...

We recently stayed 5 nights at Villa Chitdara and then did the Shompoo Cruise downstream to Huay Xai. Shompoo Cruises is run by the son of Madame Chitdara the owner. The accommodation was lovely, rooms tastefully furnished with a balcony looking onto the garden. The staff bar one of the boys were friendly and helpful. The breakfasts good with eggs...

We had a great stay at the Villa Chitdara, and really felt that it fit right in with the laid back vibe of Luang Prabang. The hotel is very convenient to the main road without actually being on the road, and is also right by the Mekong River. Having the monks walk by right in front of the hotel in...

This is a comfortable place, great location and would certainly recommend to anyone staying in Luang Prabang. The monks walk past in the morning if you want an early start, you can easily watch from the balcony of some of the rooms. The rooms facing the back garden have great views, and this is a very relaxing place to stay....

This was a great little find, like a little piece of home in far away Asia. We felt welcome from the moment we were greeted at the airport (paid the extra $) until we departed. Although the English is minimal, it was enough for us to get everything we needed, including booking a car and driver to take us to...

This hotel is within walking distance to many cafes, with plenty of choice. The staff were lovely people and very friendly. The only down side were the roosters next door and across the road which started crowing as early as 2.30am. I think it is good to hear roosters but not as early as this. The breakfast was basic but...

Excellent location , helpful staff, great value, large comfortable n clean rooms. Everything you could want n more. Helped me with alms giving by making sticky rice. Sat on the mats at dawn with owner feeding the monks. This I will treasure most.

Really great little guesthouse in the centre of Luang Prabang - not on the main street, so calmer, but still close enough to walk everywhere. Staff were all helpful, really close to all the things you would want to see, and really close to the L'Elephant restaurant, which is with out doubt, one of the best restaurants I have been...

I couldn't have chosen a better place to stay in Luang Prabang! The hotel is pretty small, however perfectly set up to offer an enjoyable stay. I had a corner room upstairs, with balcony facing the street and windows on 2 sides to get lots of natural light. It was perfect, no noise from the street, other then the nearby...

I stayed in the Villa Chitdara for several days in my recent visit to Luang Prabang. I felt at home there very quickly, and grew to love the natural decor that surrounds you. I felt very much in harmony with the environment around us, as it is nestled in among trees and other vegetation. I liked how the Villa Chitdara...
