Places to Stay in Luang Prabang for Under US $40 Per Night

Although a few bad apples are sprinkled throughout town, Luang Prabang hotels are typically a great bargain for the price. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, tranquil Luang Prabang in Northern Laos attracts a mixed crowd of backpackers and luxury travelers, so accommodation ranges widely in price and quality.

A multitude of old colonial mansions and residences have been converted into hotels in Luang Prabang. From riverside guesthouses to five-star spa resorts, competition has kept prices decently lower than expected.

Regardless, booking in advance -- particularly during the busy season and holidays such as Songkran -- will net you better prices.

All of these two-star and three-star hotels can be booked for less than US $40 per night. If you can survive with only a fan rather than air conditioning, there are even cheaper backpacker guesthouses.
