I stayed at Thong Bay as part of a group tour. This was the beat hotel we stayed at in Lao, exrremely friendly staff and great service. The rooms were clean and very spacious, there was free transport to the centre and back several times a day. The welcome pumpkin cake was delicious. Had a massage during my stay and... More

We seriously loved this place. Yes, it's a little further out of town, but easily accessible by bicycle and by the free shuttle bus they put on. The rooms were clean and wonderfully quiet. There is a great view of the river and the gardens are really beautiful. The staff are also exceptionally friendly. Breakfast was also great. Thanks so... More

I would recommend this guesthouse --- friendly staff, best service, comfortable room and free shuttle to town. We check out of our room at 12:00 noon but the bus to Vientiane departs at 8pm. We left our luggage in there after checking out. The staff allowed us to take their free shuttle to town and come back to guesthouse before... More

I stayed here with part of a trip (Intrepid Travel - the Indochina Loop) and loved the bungalows. They were very clean, air conditioned, nicely decorated and comfortable to stay in. The surroundings of the complex are really beautiful and it's about a ten minute tuk tuk ride from the Luang Prabang market which again is one of the best... More

I would like to say how nice and friendly Thongbay Guesthouse was and the rooms where fantastic and the staff great. I would highly recommend them over any 5 star Hotel. We went there with intrepid on a tour and stayed 3 nights in April and everyone day was fantastic and the breakfast on the porch superb.

With the free bus into town, and being told the maximum to pay for a tuk tuk, being out of town was never an issue. The views were excellent and eating breakfast n the balcony was wonderful. Evereyone here was extremely helpful and the friendship bracelets were a nice touch. The rooms we large and the bathroom was well equipped.

Thong Bay guest house has a delightful setting overlooking the Nam Kong river. The wooden bungalows on stilts are simply decorated and clean, although lack of air con meant multiple fans and a couple of exceedingly hot nights. The staff are friendly and efficient and the garden setting delightful. There is a small restaurant which we didn't try, but from... More

The guesthouse is located in a very quiet place, just by the Nam Khan river. It's not central but the guesthouse offers a free shuttle service to take you to the city center (5 minutes). As a result, the place is peaceful. The staff is very friendly and the huge garden is in itself a wonder, an invitation to contemplation... More
