It's about a 10 minute walk from the center of town but we really loved the location. It's near some temples in a quiet neighborhood. The style of this small guesthouse is French colonial with I think about 10 or 12 rooms. Our first night was near the laundry room and were awakened by the washing machine but they gladly...

After staying in a noisy guesthouse near Joma Bakery, my girlfriend and I decided to search around for a quieter place. We were lucky to stumble across Villa Suan Maak. It is about 50 meters back from the road so we couldn't hear the traffic. The location was just a short walk from Joma, Hive Bar and the night market....

After staying in a hotel in the center we decided to change to Villa Suan Maak. With its lovely garden, great breakfast, comfy rooms it's great value for money. Not to mentoin the nice staff who helped us renting a motorbike to go to the waterfall.

After staying in rooms with curfews and occasional room cleanings this guesthouse was a welcome destination. The rooms are clean, the showers are hot and the free breakfast with Lao coffee is filling and convenient. The ladies are sweet and the Irish man running the front dest is well traveled and extremely knowledgable and helpful. This place is a great...

I stayed a pretty lenghy and comfortable amount of time in Suan Maak, it was always a nice refuge from the city to come back to every day. The little veranda and garden were perfect for relaxing with a cold beer Lao. Staff we're helpful, the cleaning ladies were funny and charming. Slept well here, no complaints regarding comfort. Happy...

Me, my wife and our five year old son had a great stay at "Villa Suan Maak" and we will definitely come back. I can really recommend this place for your next trip to this Luang Prabang! Great with wireless connection on the hotel so that we could run som digital errands too!

The biggest annoyance was most definite the lack of a reception. The owner, a westener, was out most of the times, which left for an unattended reception, after waiting a while there was someone coming but ni english at all. So for questions, tours, tips, transport etc... Not as this place. Location wise it's about a 10 to 15 minute...

Don't get me wrong, Villa Suan Maak is a nice place by any guest house standards, I just didn't think that the price was justified. Having come from Vientiane and Luang Prabang, this was the most expensive, however the front desk operator also knew the least English and while he was helpful, there was only so much he could do...

We stayed for a few nights, and will definitely return if we get the chance. Very warm and friendly staff, clean rooms and comfortable beds. Breakfast is served in a pretty outdoors area, and it's a short walk to markets. I usually have an absolute requirement on wifi and this was no problem - excellent connection the whole stay!

“We were on teh bottom level near reception, and though some people have noted it was noisy...we didn't find it noisy at all. Perhaps it was the loud AC that drowned everyone out though :) Also, apparently the big, nice room of the villa has a nice comfy, soft bed (we were in a twin room).”
