Everything about Thongbay Guest house is absolutely phenomenal. My family and I stayed at Thongbay for 8 (non consecutive) nights in December 2016. We are two adults and 2 kids ages 10 and 13. From the pick up at the airport, to the incredible staff, to the delicious breakfasts, to the clean and well appointed bungalows, to the fantastic river...

Our 4 night stay at this delightful guesthouse was just lovely! The guesthouse is situated on the outskirts of Luang Prabang but this was not an inconvenience at all as the guesthouse offers free shuttles to and from the town centre in the mornings and evenings, which run exactly on time. Outside those hours it's easy and cheap to get...

We loved Thongbay, the staff, bungalows and breakfast were superb. The location is scenically beautiful. Views of the river and surrounded by tropical gardens. It is out of town but only a short tuk tuk ride away. Thongbay also offers a convenient shuttle service and bikes. Having breakfast delivered to you room was so special and the breaky was truly...

Very nice room! We had arrived on the slowboat from Pakbeng and had stayed in a really terrible place the night before our arrival here. It made us really appreciate the hospitality in Thongbay. Great welcome, very personal service, free shuttle into the centre (10mins at most), and pick up in the evening, free bikes (could do with some maintenance...

The gorgeous bungalows, stunning scenery and incredible staff are what make this place very special. If you're looking for an intimate, authentic, peaceful experience, I would highly recommend Thongbay. We would like to mention Kay (sorry if I spent it wrong). She is the manager of Thongbay. Kay went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and ensure we...

We stayed at Thongbay for 4 nights and were extremely impressed with the staff and accommodations. Vanh (spelling?) was fantastic at helping us with any questions and was one of the many smiling faces greeting us every day. The breakfast was absolutely delightful. The bungalows are well maintained and very clean. The location is away from the main strip but...

Thongbay is a wonderful place to stay in Luang Prabang. The staff, especially Juan is what makes this place. Friendly, accommodating and well appointed rooms. Stayed in both river view and garden rooms and both are great. Food is also really lovely here. About 1.5km from town, you can either walk, bike or they provide shuttles nearly every hour. Also...

Laos has been my favorite country in Southeast Asia so far. The staff at Thongbay are sweet, soft-spoken and really take care of you. They make sure you feel very welcome and get you anything you need. The setting of the bungalows are so serene and the view is breath taking. The best part is that they take your breakfast...

Thongbay Guesthouse is a bit of a walk from the main peninsula of Luang but it provides a getaway from the "zone". Tranquil gardens, lovely bungalows many with river views, a shuttle service to/fro centro and the airport, breakfast delivered to your door. The staff are wonderful ..... eager to help and to ensure your stay as close to perfect....

We stayed in Thongbay Guesthouse for 3 nights and we are more than happy with our selection. The location is really beautiful, especially the garden area. And much more important: hosting and service are superb - best in class. Regular shuttle service as guesthouse is a bit outside, nice breakfast specials for our little one - they did everything to...
