We stayed for 2 NON-consecutive nights and thus sampled 2 different rooms. The staff were especially helpful with advice about local attractions, handling rush laundry, and helping with logistics. The hotel is several buildings across the street from the river--so more of a riverview vibe than staring at the water--and a relatively quiet area except for cars on the street.... More

At first glance the place was pretty odd, but in a good way. The restaurant/reception is open onto the street which is relatively quiet and runs along the river (not the Mekong but the Nahm Kan). The rooms also open out onto the street and at first I thought this would be noisy as it is often so during the... More

The Apsara is right on the river so right next to lots of restaurants and seconds from the main street. The management were very helpful and breakfast was very good. Our room was in a separate block to the main restaurant/reception so it kind of felt we were staying in a separate apartment rather than the main hotel. Our room... More

This was our second stay at the Apsara and everything was top class as before. The room was ideal for three of us (daughter aged nine) The food menu, though small is very well prepared, and the wine list covers a wide selection of very well priced new and old world whites and reds. The reds are also served at... More

Our stay was pleasant. We had room 10 and we could hear the restaurant next door until around 10:30 - 11:00 at night. The bathrooms are nice and the rooms are decent size. Our room had a matress pad so the bed was not bad. The pillows deflate though so I had neck problems in the morning. My friend stayed... More

We stayed at the aspara river drote it was a gorgeous boutique hotel only 9 rooms, big comfortable rooms with balcony and nice pool. Feels very home away from home. Only complaint is the pool is not well serviced, no one there to give towels. Other than this the stay was near perfect and front desk and breakfast staff were... More

We have stayed in many hotels in Luang Prabang and found this one the nicest so far. The people are lovely and the management of the place is terrific. The rooms are lovely and have a lot of character. The balcony over the Bam Khan really adds to the charm.

Nice hotel at the river side. View is great to river Nam Kham. Our room was nice on second floor. Location is good. Although there is not so much traffic in Luang Prabang noise from motor cycles was no nice in early night. Good breakfast with good selection of food.

This lovely, charming accommodation offered a really large, comfortable, nicely decorated room. The hotel was a short walking distance to most attractions around the main drag and offered a wonderful view of the Nam Khan River. The bed was extremely comfortable and not hard like a lot of other hotels we've experienced. The complementary toiletries were of a good quality... More

Stayed here for two nights. Service was great, with staff who were very ready to assist. Bicycles were also provided for guests, and they were of decent quality, sufficient to go around the city. The rooms were spacious, and nicely set up to give a rustic touch. They also provided more water than most other hotels which was reduces the... More
