Xieng Mouane Guesthouse
Pricey but with its charms
What we say:
A lush garden sits at the centre of Xieng Moune with two buildings of rooms set around it. At the front is an old colonial-style house whose lovely rooms feature hardwood floors and antique decorations. The bathrooms are up to modern standards with hot showers and Western toilet. Rooms in the newer annex are smaller and fewer in charms and not worth the price being charged. More luxurious rooms on the upper floors have balconies overlooking the garden. Drinking water is replenished daily and Lao coffee and tea are provided at leisure. Xieng Mouane's rates are high for such small rooms, but the setup oozes Luang Prabang charm – just make sure you get one of the older rooms.Check rates around Luang Prabang best price guarantee!

Lovely place to stay
We were able to get a room without booking ahead. Not too expensive for Luang Prabang and a really convenient location. The staff were very friendly, the garden's lovely and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Definitely recommended.

We really liked it here. We had a room in the new annexe (30$), so although it lacked the space and colonial style of the older building, the room was very well appointed, with a good bathroom, fridge, plenty of hanging space (comes in useful when you end up staying three days longer than planned), and some nice decorative touches with wall hangings and plants. Everything spotlessly clean. The balcony overlooking the peaceful garden is a real plus, and comes with comfy chairs and pile of back copies of Paris Match. There's also free mineral water replenished every day and lao coffee served in the garden by friendly staff - a wonderful place!

Stayed here ten days
Villa Xuang Moune has two French provincial style buildings on the night market street. Rooms in the building at the back all have balconies overlooking a lush tropical garden. I was given the discount rate of $20 a night and loved it so much I stayed 10 days. Rooms have fridge and free tea and coffee as well. There's a lot of building going on in LP at the moment, but this place was really quiet and peaceful, even though it's so central. Highly recommended. Note that prices all over LP are higher than quoted here. I checked out a lot of guesthouses, and although the comments in the travelfish guide are really accurate, the prices are out of date.
