Dear Valued Guest,

Greetings from Rama Hotel

Thank you so much for taking your time to review Rama Hotel. It helps us to improve in our guest relation and services. Luang Prabang is very hot and I am sorry that my staffs did not turn the Air con at the Lobby. I have noted and discuses at length with them so that what happen to you will not happen again.

I want to thank you for your input about the breakfast too, it help us to improve on the breakfast menu.

We are doing our best to improve on everything for which we have just re-refurbished the whole hotel. Please do visit us again so that we can offer a better service to you.

Best Regards
Rama Hotel Managment

If, like most people, you arrive in Luang Prabang via the boat from Thailand, the hotel is not actually far from the jetty so be careful when agreeing a tuk tuk price. Not that you'd want to walk of course but there you go.

The hotel is clean, the rooms are a good size with a fridge and TV. Shower room was OK too. The air con in our room dripped a bit.

The staff here are really nice and helpful.

The hotel is a fairly short walk to the main street in Luang Prabang so a good location.

Well priced at USD 40 per night, the RAMA is in a great location just a few minutes walk from the town center and other great attractions such as the view point and temple. The pilgrims cafe, right next to the lobby, makes great Indian food and serves up a very good cappucino made from Lao coffee. The masala tea is also very good. Clean and confortable rooms and the helpful, friendly staff make a stay at the RAMA a nice experience.

Me and my wife decided to stay in this hotel when we meet the manager in pligrim's cafe as it is managed by the same person.The room we stayed was a delux room and it was very cheap,clean and good.The staff were the best i would say so helpful.The earlier hotel we stayed in luang prabang main city was not like this and was over priced.It took us 10 min's to walk to the night market which is very close and the best thing was it is the oldest Hotel out there and the tallest.Old hotel but well managed.

The rooms were quite old but very clean and the beds were very good like any other 4* or 5* hotels.We stayed in a delux room and we loved it. The staff were so helpful and the manager helped us alot with all tours and transport.Located in the perfect place away from the main noisy crowd.The night market is just around 10 mins walk from the hotel.Peace and lovely place to stay

We checked into the Rama after having to leave our previous accommodation as the beds were just too hard for us. The beds at the Rama were a delight – soft and comfortable. The room had a desk with a proper computer chair, tasteful modern pictures and plenty of storage space. The aircon unit was quiet and efficient. Whilst the bathroom did everything required of it, it was in need of updating and of some shelving for toiletries.
The staff on reception were always helpful and friendly and the manager, Danny, was always available to help with any problems or attend to your needs. He booked our flight from Luang Prabang to Siem Reap for us.
Breakfast was a huge disappointment with very little to offer. There was bread but no toaster, eggs (fried or scrambled and cold) and fried rice or cold chips. The teas on offer were ginger or fruit and the coffee was lukewarm and horrid. There were options that you could buy and I had an amazing granola and yoghurt – highly recommended, though disappointing that you had to pay because the inclusive breakfast was inedible.
