Set right on the Nam Khan river, the views are just lovely from the riverside bungalows. The gardens are lush, beautiful and so serene. The bungalow itself was very comfortable and spacious and had a balcony, where you could recline on loungers of sit at at table to enjoy the included breakfast. I can't speak highly enough of the staff,...

We loved this place. We stayed for 4 nights in June/July. The staff were so friendly and genuinely interested in us as people. Our bungalow overlooked the river, so peaceful. I like to stay in different places for the experience but would go back to stay here. The breakfast was a four course meal, brought to us at a time...

Incredible service, great rooms, lovely ambience, and amazing breakfast. By far the best place to say in Luang Prabang. The only minus on it is that it you need a tuk tuk whenever you leave the hotel, but the hotel does provide free shuttle service. Overall, highly highly recommended.

My friends and I absolutely adore Thongbay Guest House! We arrived for a short (too short) stay in LP for 4 days and have been treated so well by the staff here. Everyone is incredibly warm and friendly. Our room is on the river, beautiful balcony and views. Breakfast brought to our room every morning. Shuttle rides to and from...

I had a wonderful stay with the folks at Thongbay. They made everything so easy. From picking me up at the airport in their shuttle (no charge) to serving breakfast at a time of my choosing. I really liked the location which is just out of town on the bank of the Nam Khan river. Their breakfast choices are excellent....

This place is very nice and cheap. The surroundings are beautiful , you have bungalows right out to the river. But there is no aircon in the bungalows, so it was simply to hot for us. The staff was so nice to let us stay in an aircon room across the street. I wasn't as nice, but worth the cold...

We loved our stay at Thongbay. The rooms were fantastic, especially the bathrooms. The breakfast was more than enough each day, actually we asked them not to give us as much after the first 2 days. The staff were over the top helpful. We loved the fact we weren't righ in town. We utilised the free bikes to explore Luang...

We stayed at the Thongbay for 4 nights in total and really enjoyed our stay there. We had a bungalow facing the river. Every morning, the delicious breakfast was served on our private veranda. The facilities were very clean and well maintained. The staff very friendly and helpful and the complimentary shuttle service into Luang Prabang was very handy. The...
