Villa Sokxai 2

Our rating:
3.5 stars, based on 1 expert review

Like Vilayluk Guesthouse, Villa Sokxai 2 is in the heart of Luang Prabang’s small but lively bar and nightlife district.

The spacious upstairs rooms are the stars and boast soft-ish beds and beautiful wooden floors. The bathrooms are well done with bathtubs, pleasantly tiled walls, Western toilets and separate shower area. The most expensive rooms have huge balconies to watch the backpackers flock between popular Lao Lao Gardens, Redbul Bar, Hive Bar and Utopia. The standard rooms downstairs are similarly furnished but are smaller, lack bathtubs and could use a coat of paint. Since bars and restaurants surround Villa Sokxai 2, look elsewhere if you’d like to sleep before 23:30. If you don’t mind that then this is a reasonable budget option and location. Rates for walk-ins are negotiable.
