I think it's impossible to come here without extending your stay. We spent four nights in a river view bungalow and would have stayed longer if we'd had more time. Nothing like starting the day off with breakfast on your porch (breakfast not included, but reasonably priced). The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly (to us and our two kids)....

I fell in love with Luang Prabang as well as this beautiful guest house. The surroundings were so beautiful and our room was facing the nam Khan river. Every morning we would wake up and our breakfast would be delivered to our room. The food was great. The staff was also so kind. Our room were clean and nice. The...

Peaceful, great view of the river Khan, very nice people speaking very good english, perfect location to enjoy LP. A little far from town, but this maybe is a plus! and very special breakfast too! I will never forget this place.

Loved it in every way! Free shuttles to the center of town every hour in the morning and evening. You can walk downtown, we did a couple times, but it's a bit far to do everyday. Don't miss the free bicycles, that's definitely the best way to tour around town! It's only 10 minutes to town that way. We would...

We stayed in 3 different guesthouses during a 9-day stay in LP. We had a pretty tight budget, but decided to "splurge" a tiny bit the last two nights and stay in one of Thongbay's riverview rooms. This was a great choice – and by far one of the best values we've experienced on our trip in SE Asia. The...

This was our second stay at Thongbay and it was equally as enjoyable as the first. Thongbay is situated on the river in a beautiful garden location with tastefully appointed Laotian bungalows. It is a peaceful location and a great place to wind down after the hectic pace of the larger Asian cities. Whilst out of town it is easily...

We stayed at Thongbay for 4 days a few weeks ago and had a such a special stay there, we were actually tearful to leave. The staff at the hotel cannot do enough for you and the location is another particular highlight. Accommodation is in the form of beautifully and tastefully constructed wooden bungalows nestled amongst the grounds of the...

The place is really great, wonderfully placed by the river with a beautiful garden and very clean bungalows. The bungalow caused us some "ah"s and "oh"s when we first went in - the decoration of the bedroom and bathroom are just beautiful and the little terasse great to relax after a day in the city. The food at the restaurant...

The guesthouse is composed of several different bungalows, some of which are facing the garden and others the river. The bungalows are rather large and all have their own balcony. The bungalows did not have air conditioning, but the ceiling fans were giving sufficient cooling. It was possible to order breakfast and dinner on the terrace of your bungalow. Although...
