Zuela Guesthouse

Equal best in town

More on Luang Nam Tha

Despite not being the cheapest in town, Zuela Guesthouse’s very friendly English-speaking staff and its reputation have made it a popular choice.

Travelfish says:

A wide variety of rooms are available in two separate wooden and brick buildings, part of a compound that includes a good restaurant and bicycle/motorbike rental. The cheap rooms are simple and nothing to write home about. The exposed brick walls and lack of natural light mean the rooms are dim and a bit damp smelling and cool but you do get a small desk and decently sized private bathroom with hot water and Western toilet. Rooms in the newer building are large and come with a private balcony and a bathroom so big you could do a dance routine in it. There’s still not much natural light in the room though. They also have triple and family rooms that fit up to five and represent excellent value for a group. The rates are negotiable in low season – if you can find someone at the reception, which seems to always be deserted when you need something. Free WiFi is offered. The Zuela Guesthouse compound is located directly across the street from the night market, down the short alleyway.
