“A memorable stay @ The Chang Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2010

Excellent location and services. The Deluxe rooms are very small and very dark. Difficult or almost impossible to read at night. The staff are very nice and friendly. It would be nice if the hotel provided tv in each room as there was nothing to do in Luang Pranbang after 9.30 pm.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2009

My family and I stayed at this hotel over the New Year period.
One of the best things was probably the location - you not only have a view of the river but are also 50m from the main street and shops/restaurants etc. We loved being able to just go around the corner and be in the middle of things.
My daughter had a deluxe room and it was great - super spacious room and bathroom. Very light and airy and lots of room. However her room was across the street from ours (warning to families) and did not have any wifi access.
My husband and I shared a Premier River View room and the balcony was lovely however the room was much smaller than my daughter's and very dark. Even the bathroom was dark and small. The furnishing is nice however we had about 4 moose heads/antlers in our room. We had wifi in our rooms however.
As the hotel is an old house the noise does travel alot from room to room but I think this is similar to most places in Luang Prabang.
Breakfast is lovely on the river and the rooms were very very clean with complimentary minibar.
The cons are - no in room phone/room service or compendium as well as no pool or gymnaisum.

This hotel is very nice and comfortable. The service at times is a wee bit slow, but then Laos on the whole is a bit slow!
We had the VIP room and it was lovely, beautiful in fact.
The only issue was the wi-fi does not work in this room and I heard loads of excuses, but they never fixed it. But still that is only a minor problem as the wi-fi is more than sufficient in the main hotel lobby and even on the terrace across the road!
Breakfast is ok and no complaints.
Sometimes coffee was cold, but generally in Laos I found this happened a lot, so not really an issue as just asked them to heat it up...problem solved!
Staff are very friendly and what they lack in experience they make up for in manners!

We enjoyed staying in this hotel in the gorgeous town of Luang Prabang.
Our downstairs room was good for me as I have a disability and it was very comfortable. Tea & Coffee making not available so that would have been a plus.
Our room which was quite dark was very restful & comfortable built using Teak beams and furnished nicely with reproduction antiques.
Breakfast served overlooking the river and a village on the other side was spectacular, we just sat for ages looking and listening. The staff were charming and helpful.
The smallish but beautiful entrance foyer to the hotel was furnished with what looked like
real antiques. We enjoyed staying at this lovely hotel, we plan to return next year in November when the weather is excellent.
