Luang Prabang is the most charming city I’ve been to in Asia. And this lovely hotel has the charm to match. The hotel is housed in three beautiful colonial buildings facing the Mekong riverfront. Immediately across the quiet road (between the hotel and the river) is the hotel’s cute little restaurant - a wonderful place to have breakfast or to relax after a day of exploring.
I stayed in a “superior room without balcony”. It’s a spacious, comfortable room with lots of detail, dark hardwood floors and attractive accent furniture. You’ll definitely enjoy the uncommonly delicious cookies left in the room during turn-down service.
The staff is very kind, helpful and friendly. The daily breakfast is tasty and filling. Just what you need to fuel up before a day of sightseeing. The hotel offered a complimentary cruise on the Mekong River on my first night. It was a wonderful way to see life along the river. It was on a lovely boat with wine and snacks. It was all very civilized.
Be sure to borrow a bike from the hotel. It’s a fantastic way to get around Luang Prabang. The hotel is just one block away from the early morning alms ceremony route. Don’t be a douche - stay as hidden as you can, no talking, no camera flashes. You won’t believe how many rude tourist have absolutely no respect for this very solemn and meaningful ceremony. Don’t be one of them!
