    Wish we could have stayed longer!
    Our stay at Thongbay Guesthouse was wonderful. Our garden bungalow was spacious and comfortable. The bed was enormous and the room itself smelled like freshly washed laundry. The breakfasts were fantastic (so much food!) and really set us up for our days of wandering about. We loved sitting on our balcony in the morning, taking our time to eat our breakfast and chatting - something we generally don't spend enough time doing. If you are mobility impaired, don't worry about having to sit on the floor for breakfast - there are chairs and tables dotted all around the property. The staff are outstanding - so welcoming and helpful. We were grateful for the tip to go to the Kuang Si Falls early - we managed to have about two hours there without the hordes and counted around 100 minivans heading in that direction as we headed back to Luang Prabang. The Thongbay is slightly off the beaten path but that was what sold it to us in the first place. It is within walking distance to Luang Prabang town centre and there is a regular shuttle. Note that there are no televisions in the bungalows but don't let this dissuade you from staying at this wonderful guesthouse - just download some entertainment.

    Very good 8.0
    Overall nice but could use some improvements
    The location of the guest house is slightly outside the main town. They have shuttle service in the morning and later in the day which we made use of. Didn't really like the garden view rooms. The floor boards had huge holes allowing mosquito and insects to come in and the fixtures and overall decor were also far from the price we paid. There was also no noise insulation. There is a tiny mirror in the bathroom which my husband and I couldn't both see our faces depending on the location of the mirror. I asked the staff if they had bigger mirrors in any other room and the guy flat out lied to me and said no. Apart from that the staff was really good. Especially the women at the desk. She helped us with restaurant reservations and was always there to help with a smile. We upgraded to the river view room which was great. I highly recommend paying extra and going for his room type. The floors didn't have holes, the fixtures were better and there was a slightly bigger mirror and the overall vibe was better. The breakfast was fantastic. Suggest they add a few more options for shuttle in the afternoon and install full length mirror.

    The best place I’ve stayed!
    Fabulous! This is a family owned place with great service, friendly and helpful staff, a great ambiance, and a superb breakfast. They have free bikes, and a shuttle into town (which would be a 20 minute walk). It is in a quiet neighborhood, so gelato for sleeping. The bungalows are in a wonderful garden. We upgraded to a river view, but I’m sure the garden view rooms are also great. Each has a balcony/porch. Breakfast is delivered to the balcony or to a terrace overlooking the river, at a time you specify. They have put in a new pool across the street - it looks pristine (but we didn’t have time to go in it). This place is great!

    Absolutely superb hotel
    This hotel is simply superb. The accommodation is lovely and spotlessly clean. Gardens, grounds, swimming pool kept immaculate. The service is second to none, staff are so helpful and anticipate your every need. Little extras like breakfast in room, free airport transfer, taxi service to and from town really make a difference. They arrange massage and tours too at competitive prices. We ate at the hotel a couple of times, the food was excellent and very cheap. It is by far the best value hotel we have ever stayed in and we travel a lot. Overall excellent.

    Would return in a heartbeat!
    Thong Bay was an amazing choice. Situated 5 mins outside of town was no problem as they had a van that went often to the night market as well as free bikes. They picked us up and dropped us at the airport. The gardens are immaculate complete with a fish pond, sitting areas both in the garden and views of the river. Breakfast was served on your porch at the time you choose. I was injured and my partner got sick while on our visit. The staff were attentive with genuine concern bringing Tea and vitamin water. I can't say enough about the staff (Leun,Lieu, Lyun Lun, Gai I think thats how you spell their names!) Everyone was amazing, professional and helped with trips,engaged in conversation (if you wanted to) and were knowledgable about the area.We felt a friendship develop and would definitely return. The only downside was that the Wifi wasn't the best, but that was ok as I read/painted more. We are in our mid 50's and early 60's so we didn't stay out late, being able to watch a movie in the room would have been nice but it's ok, definitely not complaining. Grateful for being able to travel; seeing the poverty was difficult. We always felt safe but there is a locked cabinet for your passport and valuables. The beds were softer than in Thailand! When we wanted to change rooms there was no problem.(Our room was next to the kitchen and a bit noisier than others.) I would highly recommend this Guesthouse, and would return in a heartbeat.

    Delightful stay
    Very nice stay in one of the garden bungalows. Clean and comfortable room, with a small balcony area. The level of service was excellent, especially by Lao standards! Courtesy bus into town, mornings and evenings. Free bike hire, and Whan (spelling?) on reception was very helpful.

    Wonderful stay. Excellent staff
    Hotel was wonderful. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is wonderful. Our room was comfortable, and the guesthouse felt secure.The pool is very nice. It is located a little bit away from the main part of town, but we walked there a couple of times and it was not bad, which would have been even easier with the bicycles (free to rent) or guest house shuttle (free transportation at set times). Staff is helpful arranging plans/activities. I highly recommend the hotel and would definitely stay there again.

    Well maintained guesthouse with very helpful staff
    Great stay at a lovely guesthouse. Immaculate gardens being very well cared for, very beautiful. Lovely staff who were always happy to help. Amazing breakfast, every morning delivered to our terrace - many options including delicious pancakes. Great shuttle bus service into town, as it is situated a little bit further out of town which we really liked. And free bikes which we used to head in early to see the alms giving. Overall a very relaxed and enjoyable stay, would wholeheartedly recommend.
