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.

Clean, comfortable (The A/C is very effective) rooms with a friendly staff. The restaurant is very accommodating to food allergies (Gluten free) and the quality is excellent. Breakfast is excellent as well. Laundry service was prompt, well done, and cheap. The only negative is the lack of a pool but this will give you a reason to check out La... More

This hotel is really wonderful, price-quality wise. The room was small, but clean and comfortable. The breakfast was nice with the view to the Mekong. I had a room towards the river in the first floor. It was nice to have a small terrace, but it was a little noisy as it was next to the street. I felt a... More

What a wonderful relaxing place to be in. Our room was No 14, next to Tamarind, but we were not bothered by any noise other than the usual street noise. Huge walk-in shower. Two lovely generous sized soaps, plus shower, shampoo and body lotion. Flannels, tissues, a fridge, what more could you want. The bed was comfortable, not quite as... More

We had a classical colonial room on the first floor which was charming. Bid bath, shower is close to the toilet but works fine. Bed was quite hard but this seems to be the case in most hotels in the area. Friendly and helpful staff handled everything in a positive and efficient way. Better value that the sister hotel across... More

Of course, this is a great boutique hotel as others mention but I have to add that the room notes are the funniest I have read in a hotel, as well as being informative. They reflect the friendly style of the English owner. And the restaurant here is an absolute find. Excellent modern Asian fusion from an Australian chef with... More

All three hotels where my wife and I stayed during our recent trip to Laos did not rate a "very good" based on our years of traveling in Nepal, Vietnam, and Cambodia. At all three hotels, the problem seems to be management. Although we had some problems with email connections, Ivan handled our reservations in an acceptable manner. Upon arrival... More
