Villa Merry No. 1
Come for the views
What we say:
There are two types of rooms at Villa Merry I – those with views and those without. The rooms without views are okay, but it's not worth coming this far out of town for a room that is nothing special and costs $30. Rooms with views though certainly are worth a 10-minute walk from town. These rooms boast large wooden beds with hard mattresses, air-con, free WiFi and clean hot water bathrooms with showers that look like space capsules. But the main game is the fabulous balcony which looks over the peaceful Nam Khan. It's better than most views in town, including those from the most expensive hotels and it's available at a fraction of those prices. Come for the views.

update on price and noise
right, Merry 1 by the river is a nice place to stay. You're a member of the family soon. Clean!Safe! price $ 10 (for a double), which is very small, if it is to sleep two. The house is built of wood and at night you can hear every snore, cough, even turn on the mattress(squeaky). So, if you have a sound sleep, go there, if not, stay away. There''s lots of other options in LPB. Martin (Germany)

This is a good value residence at the end of a quiet road on the river, and away from the over-touristed town centre. Clean and tidy. The staff are well-informed and are very helpful. Try to speak at least Thai because most people understand it. If hiring a bike, check the brakes thoroughly.

Good price, nice to walk off your dinner...
Nice rooms, quite basic, nothing special but good price, $4 for a double and nice to be a bit of a walk from town, only 10 minutes. The girls are lovely but don't speak english too well- you can usually get the information you need if you try hard enough. Laundry is expensive!! Tuk tuks always at the end of the drive if you need the bus station, no matter how early, and no worrites about it not having huge tourist information, you will get enough in town anyway, all the tours are very similar taking in Pak Ou caves and Kuang Si waterfall plus a few hill tribe villages.

Great location next to the river where you can watch the locals kids enjoy themselves in the river and do what kids generally do. Very friendly staff and well kept rooms. Somewhat out of town but hey 10 minutes walk isn't going to harm anyone.

War k�rzlich bei der Familie Samoraphouma zu Gast. Alles war sehr schön, freundlich und sehr schöne Lage �ber dem Nam Khan Fluss. Jetzt gibt es auch das neue Merry 2 Lao-Swiss Guesthouse. Macht auch einen sehr guten Eindruck. Nächstes Mal dort!!
