“Loved it!”
Reviewed July 16, 2011

Beautifully restored hotel with lovely rooms overlooking nice pool. Staff were really friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Very close to night market, and everything that lovely Luang Prabang has to offer. Really enjoyed our stay.

We stayed 4 nights for a good price and enjoyed the stay but for a theft. Friendly staff, nice pool, pleasant rooms, not 4 star though. Relatively new hotel so staff need some more training. Had some problems with the A/C as the outside temperature was 35c and it struggled to cool the room enough for a decent sleep. Unfortunately we had money stolen from the safety deposit box behind reception as there appears to be no control on its access. As we didn't check the money until arriving at the airport to leave we never got it back. We made the manager aware of this by phone from Hanoi so maybe a change will occur. Beware if you stay here, keep your valuables on you.

This place advertises itself as a four-star hotel but it's a long way from being one. At first glance it looks nice, but then you take a look at the room. No remote for the AC - so you either get freezing cold or no AC at all. No phones. No night tables by the bed, so they give you a little plastic flashlight to find your way around the room at night. Decorations are haphazardly hung and some are coming down. Rooms are very dark, and you had better shower in 5 or so minutes because that's all the hot water you get (and the design of the shower ensures the bathroom floor floods). Breakfast was on par with sub-standard airline food, and hardly anyone on the staff speaks or understands Engilsh at much beyond a basic level. This means there's no help for booking tours, finding out about sights - you're on your own. The owner likes to act superior until you bring up a problem and then he starts whining about how hard it is to hire staff. Given the amount of money this place charges, I would steer clear of it.

Although this hotel looks attractive (pool area and overall external appearance) and is located reasonably close to the main area of the city, it has several serious problems. To begin, eight rooms occupied by our group all suffered from an outrageous sewage smell. As well, I was shown to three different rooms before the staff found one that was not already occupied. The rooms are sparsely furnished; don't look for anything to put your luggage on. The lighting in the rooms is not adequate to do any reading. Breakfast was barely tolerable. They don't have any means of keeping the cooked food hot and the choices were minimal and not attractive: toast, fried eggs, fake orange juice. Granted it's under new management, but they should wait until they solve some of their problems before they register anyone else.
