The Hillside City Residence is a self-catering house, located across the bamboo bridge and protected by UNESCO. Stories and legends abound concerning this 150 year old house. It’s only a 5 minute walk or a 15 min bicycle ride to the old town of Luang Prabang. As a fully furnished and equipped house it is ideal for couples, families or 2 couples traveling together.
The Space: This house is a UNESCO world heritage itself and in the neighbourhood nobody knows its exact age. With great attention to detail they created an atmosphere focused on authentic Lao lifestyle, while still considering the needs and wishes of Western guests.
Spacious with approximately 170 m² it is ideal to experience traditional authentic village life. Nevertheless, just crossing the bamboo bridge (Oct-June) it takes only a 5 min walk to the town centre and by using the bike bridge only a 15min ride (all year around); 4 bicycles (+ 1 child seat) are provided for free. The house offers 2 air-conditioned bedrooms with 3 queen-sized beds for maximum 6 guests, 2 spacious living areas (each with 60 m²) and a garden courtyard with temple view.

The temple Wat Phan Luang is just opposite and like everywhere in Laos it is the nerve centre of the village, so religious life is taking place right in front of your door.
