As this was our second visit to Luang Prabang and this wonderful hotel I was hoping I would not be disappointed. Five stars is not enough for Urban (the owner) and his staff including Noi who was also there two years ago. Since our last visit Urban has built a lovely cafe right on the banks of the Mekong which serves breakfast and meals all day. The breakfast is buffet but with an al la carte hot selection for you to choose from. Wonderful fruits including sliced mangoes and paw paw, croissants..heated of course as are the coffee and tea cups and a great selection of breads from the French bakery are just a few of the choices. Home made ginger and green tea is a highlight as well.The rooms are fantastic with Swedish electric beds which I think are the most comfortable I have ever slept in. French doors open on to balconies overlooking the very quiet road and the Mekong River….a wonderful sight. We stayed New Years Eve and the rooms are so quiet we did not hear any noise.A kettle and tea, coffee, milo etc was a addition to the rooms since our last visit.
In the reception area the same is available all day including freshly baked cake each afternoon.
The staff are more like a family as the hotel has only 18 rooms so the personal service is outstanding.
They are all lots of fun and I really can't wait to go back again.
