This is a great boutique hotel in a fantastic location overlooking the confluence of the Mekong and the Nam Khan rivers. We were there over Christmas and the kind owner, Urban, invited all the guests to champagne and canapes in reception. We also saw the owner lop off the top of a champagne bottle with a huge sword! (I kid you not) The other guests staying were a great bunch and we bumped into each other regularly while exploring small and compact Luang Prabang. The staff were exceptionally friendly - Laos people are humble, honest and show kindness rare to see in the world these days. Breakfast was great - tasty omelettes and wonderful pancakes - something I looked forward to each day! The only minor quibble I had (which prevents me from giving this hotel five stars) is the damp problem in our room - something needs to be done about ventilation to prevent mould in the bathroom. The hotel is so good though, we didn't mind too much. When walking through Luang Prabang we were glad we had a riverside hotel despite it being a bit far out of town - a shuttle service compensates from the lack of proximity.
