Great location, FANTASTIC food and lovely room. Handy for everywhere in Luang Prabang but the best thing about it is the staff - friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and very helpful. They couldn't have done more to help me enjoy my stay in their city. All of them spoke good English. I am so glad I stayed here, and would thoroughly recommend... More

We spent 6 nights here and loved the location, the size of the room and the view from the small balcony of the street and the river. The breakfast was quite good and the staff helpful and friendly. We took advantage of the complimentary bikes several times. Only negative was that it was a bit expensive.

The Apsara is a wonderfully atmospheric place. It has an effortless elegance and offers understated luxury without actually being pricey... Truly rare in today's brash and ostentatious world. It also has the perfect location, right next to the Tamarind, absolutely my favorite restaurant in Luang Prabang. Even though I had a minor run-in with the flimsy wooden screen next to... More

We have just returned from L P. The Apsara was perfect. We were met at the airport. The welcome was excellent. Our rooms were spacious and looked out over the river. We ate outside by the river. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. They arranged a car to the waterfalls and a lovely sunset cruise down the Mekong.There... More

Every year seems to bring me back here, mind you, i,m not alone, there seem to be a lot of people who've been before. I think it's because it looks great without being poncy, the food is amazing and it attracts interesting fellow guests. Its everything you want a hotel to be and so few are.

The food is definitely "fusion" and not necessarily typical Laos dishes, but after a week of eating at the markets and having plenty of traditional dishes, we were ready for a change. There were plenty of interesting option on the menu, I can recommend the carrot, lemongrass & ginger soup, and the papaya salad with duck, both were excellent. The... More

The Apsara is just lovely. The ambiance of the restaurant and the beautifully appointed rooms plus the super friendly and accommodating staff made my weekend stay here just great! The breakfast was fantastic. The location was just right - far enough from the city centre to be quiet and close enough to walk or bike everywhere. The room was huge,... More

This place is wonderful - recommend you treat yourself and stay here. The rooms are beautiful and the breakfast is great. Definitely go to the restaurant - one of the best we had been to in Laos. Make sure you get the buffalo braised cheeks. Drooling thinking about it now.

This is a lovely boutique style hotel, when you enter you come in to the restuarant cum lounge cum receptiondesk, and a lovely breeze comes through the open huge doors. The rooms are very clean and beds are very comfy, nicely decorated. Our room had a terrace and a huge bathtub. The only drawback, is the lack of television, but... More

The Apsara was nicely renovated spot i Luang Prabang on the more quiet side of town I liked the design and simplicity. The only downside seemed to me the aircon which was extremely loud. The satff was a bit spaced out but I guess most staff around LP was a bit spaced out.
