Villa Laodeum Luang Prabang Reviews
In the heart of Luang Prabang Oct 06, 2011
I booked a room at this hotel through agoda.com for 3 nights at a total cost of A$75 for a solo traveller in June 2011. Breakfast was included in the price, and there were a number of options. I opted for pancakes most days, and you also get a cup coffee, juice and a small plate of fresh fruit.
After disembarking the boat at the pier, walk along the road for about 5-10 minutes towards the Royal Palace Museum. Once you hit the museum, turn left into Ban Choumkhong, Ounheuan Road. This road is perpendicular to the main street Sisavang Vong Road.
1. The room comprised a double bed, with air conditioning, fridge
2. Separate bathroom (towel and toiletries provided)
3. Located just off the main street, so quiet at night.
4. 5 minute walk away to the main street (Sisavang Vong Road) and the night markets, the entrance to the Royal Palace Museum, and the main stairs up to Phou Si
5. Free Wifi
6. 2 bottles of water provided daily
1. Dark at night when the wooden shutters are placed over the windows
Overall recommend - recommended for budget solo travellers only who don’t want to stay in a hostel, but don’t want to pay for an expensive 4-5 star hotel.
After a 2 day ride down the Mekong river, it was great to arrive at this hotel, where I was greeted with a smile and a cold glass of water. I was allocated room (#1) which was on the ground floor next to the entrance and reception. Outside the windows was the eating area on one side and the laundry drying area on another (NB noise may affect light sleepers)
The bed was comfortable, and there was a desk and stool, TV, fridge, and the bathroom had shampoo and body wash. The hotel location was right next to the royal palace. The staff were kind and considerate, always asking you if things are ok – now that's service!
Advice: I met a Latvian and an American traveller who both described the procession of the Buddhist monks and the locals who offer rice to them. I think this is done each morning, and requires an early rise (5am?). Just check with the reception on the time and even a wakeup call!
