We stayed 3 nights in Luang Prabang in this hotel and it coudn't be better. Our entire schedule was thrown off by 1 day due to internal flight cancellation and we had to call to ensure our booking via Agoda was not affected. It was not a problem at all and the person who answered the call had no problems in English.
Location of the hotel was great - just off the main street and one can see the Alms giving procession each morning just outside the hotel. Bathroom was kept clean although we had problems controlling the hot water from the shower. Nice firm beds and very clean sheets. The room we had was a triple room facing Sisavang Watthana street and there was ample space. Only complain was that the TV was a little small for such a big room. We were woken up about 4 - 5am on our first night stay due to the hotel being next to a Wat. There was some special occasion hence the gongs going off early but the hotel did place a sign to apologise for the inconvenience. It's all part & parcel of a unique experience!
Hotel staff were very friendly although limited English. They could recognise us each time we got back to the hotel and didn't have to ask to be given the right room key! We could walk easily to the daily night market, the river and one can simply walk to the pier to get onto daily tour boats to Pak Ou caves (65,000Kip per pax). There are also many tuk tuks you can hire to bring you to the Kuang Si waterfalls (around 200,000Kip for a half day tour). We were astounded by the colours and number of levels of the falls and mind you, we have seen quite a few!
Breakfast was basic - simple western food or Laos noodles. The waiters & waitresses were excellent in their service and very alert to customer needs without being asked - we asked for hot water so that we could have our own instant coffee (not used to Laos coffee!) and they brought it to us without fuss.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Luang Prabang. Good value for money!
