Great midrange value
Nam Khan River Rd, Luang Prabang T: (071) 254 896, (071) 252 074
Villa Somphong hits a sweet spot for those travellers happy to pay a little more for a stylish room but not willing to move into top-range prices.
Flashpackers will delight in both the location and the above average rooms. Located in two buildings on the Nam Khan at the far end of the peninsula, Villa Somphong has small rooms with polished wood floors, flat screen TVs, neatly painted walls, beds with good linen, tiny table and chair, air-con and extremely bright bathrooms. It's a very comfortable place where you can relax in your room, watch a bit of TV and surf the free WiFi without feeling the slightest bit worried about cleanliness or noise. They’ve even made an effort with the exterior: it’s freshly painted white and pale yellow and adorned with cheerful wood stained shutters, picket fence and a protective barrier of pretty potted plants.
