On my last visit to Luang Pra Bang I stumbled upon this hotel when it was in the process of being completed and decided to stay there the next year. It is a "top end" hotel but well worth the expense. The vibe and architecture of the place reminded me of Jim Thompson's place in Bangkok. Very tasteful with beautiful teak floors.
The proprietor Urban Paulsson is an experienced hotelier from Sweden who made every detailed effort to make my stay as informative and comfortable as one would expect from a higher end facility.
It also boasts one of the best locations in the tranquil city of Luang Pra Bang with great views of the Mekong River flowing by.
The staff were also first class in their understanding of English and made every effort to accommodate whatever need I desired.The Lao people are wonderful people indeed.
My only reservation in writing this review is that the place will quickly become popular and booking future visits will be difficult as I hope to stay there in the future.
