The other reviews are right: this is an absolutely excellent hotel. We stayed for four nights in August 2012, and everything about the stay was perfect. Booking was easy and we had really good email advice from the hotel staff about the choice of rooms in advance of confirming our choice. We opted for a river facing junior suite, on the upper floor. This was exactly the right choice for us, as we used the balcony to sit and watch the world go by. The room was well designed and functional, with all the facilities needed for a very comfortable stay. The bed was, as everyone says, great. Breakfast was provided in a magical location, right on the banks of the Mekong River. The choice of food was really good, with hot choices cooked to order. But what sets this hotel apart from anywhere we have stayed was the quality of the staff and their willingness to be as helpful as possible in every single instance. This clearly comes from the owner, Mr Urban, for whom this hotel is clearly a labour of love. His wine receptions, held every other night, were lovely, honest occasions for travellers to meet and chat. He was always to be seen around the hote, or around town, and we were genuinely impressed with his commitment to running not simply a first class hotel, but also one that provides good employment and remuneration for its staff. His knowledge of the town was incredibly helpful, and his tips on where to eat, or what to visit, or where to shop were all, in our experience, absolutely accurate. Luang Prabang should not be rushed. The staff will willingly take you to dinner reservations or to temples in the hotel golf cart, which makes this hotel the perfect place to stay.
