This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The Merry Lao Swiss is a nice place to stay, very clean and staff is extremely friendly and helpful (I never got to see the Swiss owner, though). Breakfast was also excellent. But at US $ 35 for a single room it is too expensive. There are other places closer to the river and near the Palace that offer similar accomodation for 18 US $.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The good points: staff were friendly and helpful, included in the $40 USD per day rate was a good brekkie, daily bottled water, air-con, towels, toilet roll, office safe.

The not so good: the room was advertised as a twin deluxe ensuite, but not quite like the photos being a little cramped, average beds/pillow comfort, shower was a kneel in the bath job with a rubber fitted shower head and variable hot/cold pressure - the type I thought I'd left behind long time ago in the UK, but hey flushing toilet and hot and cold water's ok right :-)
Internet is free from office PC, but extremely slow and software versions outdated (like 1980's modem slow...) I decided to pay the 150kip per min (8500kip = 1USD) down the road for a good service.

The stuff that can't be helped but you need to be aware of: multiple power outages daily and particularly weekends - i.e. no air-con, internet, tv, lights, fridge etc. so depending on the time of day not a problem or a pain. Early morning roosters (4-5am) to herald the arrival of tuk-tuks below your window and a few expectorations, but lie back and enjoy the ambience... :-)

General comments on Luang Prabang: compared with other parts of Laos (and Cambodia) found travel, trips, temples, food etc. relatively more expensive, but great value in comparison to Western standards.

Trip to Pak caves on Mekong was enjoyable, but caves disappointing. Waterfalls are excellent as well as the main Wat temple and palace. Evening dining alongside the Mekong river or the tributary Nam are a must as well as cheap massage.

Absolute highlight, apart from the many temples was climbing the steps to the hill temple from the opposite side to the Mekong at sunset (albeit along with hordes of other tourons), but then walking down into the magnificent night markets which are huge and great quality/value.

We will be going back to Luang Prabang, but will try somewhere else to stay.

Staff were very attentive and tried to please. Rooms very clean but tended to be a bit on the dark side otherwise everything was fine and they stored our luggage for us when we went away for a few days.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We stayed at Villa Merry #2 - not the original Merry closer to town.

No 1 is for the younger generation - No 2 is for us oldies = much quieter.

The owner and his wife are excelent hosts - the staff are friendly and welcoming.

Definately recommended......!!!!!!!!!!
