Cheap, bare rooms
Chao Chomphou Rd, Ban Visoun, Luang Prabang T: (071) 212 805
Thony 1 is a bit out of town on a laneway just before the motorbike bridge over the Nam Khan.
If you have a problem with a 10-minute walk to get into town, this isn't for you. Located in a cluster of budget guesthouses that includes Villa Merry 1, Thony 1 is a family-run joint that provides good backpacker value with the air-con rooms being some of the cheapest in town. Cheap in this case doesn't mean nasty, but it does mean minimalist and bare. You can look forward to a bed, tile floor and if you’re lucky, a TV. The ensuite hot water bathrooms are large and clean. The family running the place is pleasant enough. This is a good cheap option if you don't mind the walk into town.
