For 5 nights we enjoyed the explorator suite above the dining room. It was spacious with a wonderful bathroom, huge bed with mosquito netting and a delightful large balcony with garden views to the hills. All staff were incredibly kind and the food delicious. The pool was the initial drawcard for us, especially in late July, but the whole experience... More

Would have preferred a place with more contemporary features but was not sure such place exists. Was disappointed with our room but again, maybe this is the norm here. Food though was good and we were disappointed to have been taken out to dinner in the city when we felt the hotel would have done a much better job

We spent four nights in the hotel. We had the explorator suite, extremely spacious with a wide terrasse and an enormous bathroom. The room comes with complementary afternoon tea which was delicious. The hotel is very classy, in colonial style, very good sober taste. The breakfast is very very rich. Bycicles available to guest plus free transfer to town are... More

My husband and I stayed at the Luang Say Residence as part of our honeymoon. We were only supposed to stay there for two nights and then fly to Phukett but we loved the hotel and the town so much that we decided to stay longer. Santi extended our stay and helped us change our tickets. He even booked a... More

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights in July. A truly beautiful old colonial French style hotel, beautiful grounds, umbrellas and shade around the pool, very peaceful. Breakfast was excellent, especially the Eggs Benedict. A suggestion for people that stay for longer periods of time, perhaps you could say that you can spend up to $US25 on your breakfast... More

This hotel is very nice. I did not spend too much time researching it, I just went by the TripAdvisor rating. My first thought was that it didn't seem to be very much like the 'hero' picture taken over the pool. Instead the hotel is spread out over several old colonial style buildings. My room was very large and the... More

We stayed in one of the suites for a week -and could not have been happier with the hotel, its location and its ambiance. The hotel itself is perfectly staffed with superb rooms, excellent food, beautiful grounds and a really stunning pool. This being our first time coming to Laos, we were a little unsure about what we'd find but... More
