Travelers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
The first and still one of the most beautiful boutique hotels in Luang Prabang, the Apsara was originally a rice warehouse situated on the banks of the Nam Khan [The quieter side of town]. The Apsara is also right in the heart of the heritage village, making it the perfect place to stay. From the comfort of its large, airy bedrooms, rated by the Washington Post as "an inch beyond decadence", it's easy to explore temples and the lanes of Luang Prabang. After which you can relax on the river terrace and enjoy the spectacular views and a refreshing Beer Laos. But that's not all, our restaurant is well known for having one of the most interesting menus in town as well as a superb wine list and the driest martinis in Laos. As Hip Hotels said "Both the restaurant and bar reflect a refined sense of taste" and who are we to argue with that.

We were recommended to stay at Apsara by friends who told us that it was unique. It truly is all of that. Lovely quaint rooms with verandahs overlooking the river. Beautiful location that was quiet and away from the street noise. What sets this hotel apart is the outstanding

Approximately what should a taxi cost from the airport? Thanks!
We asked the hotel to arrange a car to pick us up. It was more expensive than a taxi (maybe it cost $15) but we did not want to haggle. We were initially concerned that taxi drivers would try to take advantage of travelers, but we did not find that to be true in Laos or Cambodia.

"Upstairs Room 10"
"Be sure to stay in a room in which window doors can be tightly closed to avoid traffic noise "
"The superior rooms on the upper floor overlooking the river are the best"
"Room 1 - huge and comfortable. But the air-con was in a timber box that creaked loudly as it expanded with the air temp changes."
"Upstairs rooms have good views; downstairs rooms are cheaper and more recently renovated so both types of rooms are good options"
$41 - $104 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
