I really can't imagine a more welcoming place to stay in Luang Prabang. The location—right on the river— and views are absolutely superb, but that's only the beginning. The level of care and helpful information offered by all the staff is unparalleled in my experience. General Manager Daniel is a mine of information, willing to advise on or arrange any expedition, happy to provide excellent honest and unbiased recommendations of restaurants. The front desk staff are unfailingly smiling, and helpful way beyond the call of duty—they anticipated our needs before we'd even thought of them! Fresh towels to take with us to the waterfalls, bottles of chilled water handed over as we set off to go see the elephants...
I took a room on the side (forsaking the river view, which I figured I could enjoy from the hotel's veranda) and revelled in the extra space and sense of privacy, and the bath (with jacuzzi). How lovely to have complimentary soft drinks provided and replenished every day in the fridge in one's room! The (Swedish) beds are extremely comfortable: best nights of sleep I've had in years. From the moment you are met at the airport, you are brilliantly looked after. There should be an expression that is the exact opposite of the "nickle and diming" that is so common is so many hotels. We must have drunk litres and litres of the free bottled water! And free internet...The spirit of the place is kindness and generosity personified.
