Terrific hotel in every aspect. This was a return trip to Luang Prabang for us and we thought we'd try a different property. So glad we did as this was a gem indeed!
Can't say enough great things about this place. Rooms are spacious, well air-conditioned, clean, and beautifully decorated. Our room overlooked the river. Bathroom was big with a good shower and good water pressure. Toilet was in a separate closet which was rather small but that is easy to overlook given everything else this property has going for it.
Staff is incredibly helpful, even arranging motorcycles for us within about 10 minutes. They have a golf cart to drive guests around as well as plenty of bikes for free use.
Our rate came with breakfast and the food was fantastic. Breakfast included options of western or asian hot breakfast, and both came with the buffet of wonderful baguette, fruit, coffee, etc.
Internet worked well and was free.
Location was epic - on the river, near the temples (5 minute walk to see the morning alms), yet still quiet and peaceful. Everything is about a 5 - 10 minute walk or bike ride away.
While I initially thought the price point was a little high, I think that is the reality in Luang Prabang now. And after staying there, it was definitely worth it.
