tedmac 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......!!!!!!!!!!

Petal UK All accommodation in Luang Prubang is completely overpriced generally and not good value for money. Particularly for New Year... when I was there. I paid $40 for 3 nights and then $48 for the 2 nights of the New Year that I was there. I was happy with my room it was huge and clean with good functioning A/C. I had a problem with my shower which was remedied straight away. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, breakfast which included was a good buffet. On speaking to people I realised that I actually got a very good deal and also that the level of some of the accommodation of the guesthouses around the centre that look very nice from outside are often extremely poor on the inside! I would definitely stay at the Rama again and would recommend it.
garygwilliam The first thing I want to say is that the web page and the actual rooms is a little misleading. Whereas the pictures depict rooms that are large, which they are, many of them are very dark and afford little in the way of scenery from the windows at all since construction has progresed since and views of the Mekon are no longer there. The rooms have good a/c, but found it a little weird to have windows with no glass, and only shutters that barely closed. (The bed was large, comfortable, with large pillows). Not this this was a problem for keeping the room cool, but it sure didn't do anything to keep the outside noises, or the mosquito's out, even though mesh curtains and bed mosquito net is provided out. TYhe noise, although nothing major, just some construction noises in the a.m, and Beer trucks emptying their loads into a storage area right behind the guesthouse. The staff were very accommodating, and were helpful in everything I asked of them be it Laundry, directions to get around, points of interest and so on. As a single traveller, I found my room (#4) to be very adequate. Rooms were made up quickly when I left, but they were not so quick to empty out the trash or provide toiletries when needed, but asked for. The location is ideal for someone not wanting to be "In the middle of everything". A short walk can get you to restaurants and Bars, but it was a good 30 minutes into the center of town.

David_j_walker Excellent guest house, extremely clean room and large comfortable bed with crisp white cotton sheets. A perfect riposte to the 2 day slow boat trip with wonderful hot water shower. Very helpfully staff and only 5 minutes walk to the main streets of Luangprabang. Would thoroughly recommend.

jgaweed Merry Guest House No. 1 is probably the best guesthouse I have ever stayed at. Sam and his wife were so, so good and always delivered 100% to any questions any guest had. Breakfast was scrumptious every morning and it was washed down with a big glass of Lao coffee. And this was all free along with the great service and the company of 3 adorable, well-behaved little dogs! Location is good with the city being only 10mins walk away. There is also a great bar around the corner, Hive bar, which is a must do if in Luang Prabang. The rooms were very cozy and the attention to detail made it feel like our home away from home. Free WiFi also and great advice from Sam. Sam himself knows English as well as German as well as Lao, his native tongue. If you choose to stay here, do have a chat with him as he is quite learned and knowledgable. He also runs a charity for poor Lao kids in the north, the Monarisa foundation. Staying here was a truly humbling experience. Would recommend it to all and we would definitely stay here again if in Luang Prabang.

meberty I read the reviews for this hostel before booking. Yes, they are true. The lady at the reception is very very helpful. We reached Luang Prabang very late in the night (11:30pm). But managed to get a Tuk-Tuk to this place (thankfully, it is popular and so the tuk-tuk driver knew the hostel!). The lady arranged a shared trip to KwangSi falls, which was really good! The next day, she also arranged a motorbike for us to go to Tad Sae and gave the directions as well. Altogether, I definitely recommend staying in this hostel.

aaron.p.la Clean, good value. Fellow guests said they had issues with the service (communication issues) but I had no such problems. Would stay there again.
