We spent four wonderful days in Luang Prabang and cannot recommend Le Bel Air enough. The property is beautifully set on the Nam Khan river -- on the other side side of the river from the main touristy part of town. This was a plus for us as we enjoyed coming back to the quiet and peace of the hotel and were not interested in the backpacker party scene (which admittedly is pretty tame compared with other backpacker scenes). We enjoyed the five minute bike ride into town across the old bridge (although it was a little frightening at first . It was EXTREMELY frightening to walk across the bridge however as while walking the less than pristine state of the bridge becomes evident. If you don't want to cross the old bridge, the hotel is happy to take you into town using their car which crosses the new bridge).
Appart from the setting and location, the service was excellent. I was involved in a small motorbike accident in town, which the hotel somehow heard about. One of the managers came as soon as he heard, and ferried myself and the other person involved in the accident to the hosiptal (which was modest). He waited for us to be seen by a doctor and drove us back. When I tried to reimburse them for the hospital bill, my offer was refused. The manager repeatedly said that when I was a guest, I was family. They checked in with me for the rest of my stay to make sure I was ok.
