We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel VDR whilst visiting the beautiful Luang Prabang. The staff were warm, welcoming and courteous and always greeted you with a smile. The room was big and clean with good facilities (safe, fridge, tea/coffee, air con) etc. The shower was slightly disappointing as,although powerful, the water sprayed out everywhere from the shower head. The breakfast was fantastic, good choice and very filling, we enjoyed eating outside and looking out over the river. There was a welcome book in the room with lots of helpful information about the area and suggested restaurants. We tried the french bakery (le banneton) and dyen sabai which were both excellent. Overall a lovely stay at hotel VDR and would definitely recommend.
Due to an unexpected situation, we were kindly moved from our original hotel to Villa Deux Rivieres where the management provided us with excellent, spacious accommodation overlooking the Nam Khan river. We were later moved to a different room which was also very comfortable and beautifully furnished. The location was excellent as we were easily able to walk to the main shopping areas, temples and restaurants in this beautiful city. The villa is well set up for breakfast, and we enjoyed ours on the verandah overlooking the river. Although not all reception staff are fluent in English, they went out of their way to help us, especially with booking transport. We traveled to Laos in early December which was sunny and dry during the day but quite cold at night. If travelling at this time of year, consider packing a jumper and warm sleepwear. The villa organised to have laundry done for us - cheap and of a high standard.…
Location is perfect, near everything: the sites, the route of the Tak bat ceremony, the must try restaurants, very good Lao massage place. It's across the quiet side of the river, near where the Mekong and Nam Kahn River converges. Rooms and toilets are very spacious and very clean. Amenities are complete. Water pressure is very strong. Free breakfast is sumptuous, delicious and well made. Even though it's not a buffet, we were very satisfied with the selection of food. Staff are all very gracious, always nice and smiling, and very fast with their service. They made us feel at home. Given the opportunity, we will stay at this hotel again and will highly recommend to friends and family.
Great value, beautiful rooms an enormous breakfast and very friendly staff. Very close to where the Mekong and the Nam Khan meet. They also have a shuttle service to and from the airport and a perfect spot to check out this UNESCO world heritage site
Initially, this place was a disappointment, as the room we were given simply didn't work. The A/C, door locks, lockbox, nothing worked right. After the first night, we asked to change rooms, and we were upgraded without any hassle. After that, everything was fine. One highlight worth mentioning is they serve a very good breakfast.
