I stayed at both the Sayo River GuestHouse and the Sayo Xieng Mouane and would recommend both. The Xieng Mouane is a bit closer to the action in Luang Prabang, but he River GuestHouse is right on the Mekong. Both Nith at the river location and Sao at the Xieng Mouane went out of their way to make me feel...

Stayed here for 3 nights, without an advance booking so we were glad we could find a room. Payed 30usd per night for a room in the quadrants next to the main building, quite expensive in my opinion. The room was basic, quite noisy, but spacious and equiped with airco, frigde, tv, hot water and housekeeping every day. No showercurtain...

We stayed 3 nights in this guesthouse. We had a room in the ground floor, very quiet. The area is quiet just in front of a temple (that you have to cross to get to the city center) Rooms are clean, very basic though. TV was not working and lizard in the room (but i guess it is part of...

Great balcony with comfortable chairs overlooking the Mekong. Very clean room, accommodating staff. but no breakfast included although free coffee/tea/water all day. However, it was expensive and for that price a...

I loved the vintage exterior. We booked a room in the main house facing the street with a view of the Wat. There was no deposit so it was imperative for me to be in constant touch by e-mail, keeping them informed when our flight from Bangkok was delayed. Their rule was no room guarantee for late arrival. We had...

We stayed with friends at the Sayo Guest House in Luang Prabang on a recent trip to Laos and had a great experience. We did not have reservations as we could not figure out how to communicate with them online, but just showed up and they had rooms available. The Guest House is a huge old French colonial building with...

There are now three Sayo estblishments- this one was located on river and is known as sayo river guesthouse. I booked in advance by internet and no problems with the booking. The location on the river was great - short walk into town and near to all attractions. I opted for a downstairs room $30 US a night- they no...

Beautiful quiet, location but still only a stroll from the rivers, main street shops, restaurants and night market. Attentive staff and well-maintained rooms. No complaints - really enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended.

Sayo Riverside is well located on the riverfront in Luang Prabang. At $50 per night our room was overpriced (stick with the $40 rooms). Both mornings the lights in our room fused in the bathroom leaving us showering in the dark. After a long and unpleasant discussion the manager gave us a $5 per night discount. I would pay the...

To our regret, we ignored the reviews of others who had their reservations canceled or ignored by the Sayo. Despite emailing them directly 3 months in advance, confirming a week before arrival, and phoning them at 4:00 pm the day of arrival, by 6:30 pm they gave away our room. No attempt to find us alternate accommodation, just "go somewhere...
