I stayed in this hotel for four nights last week, and my stay in Luang Prabang couldn't have been better. The location is great, you can walk to the boat ticket office, to the night market, to most sights, wonderful restaurants and the greatest shops. The morning alms procession passes right through the street in front of the hotel, so you can watch it quietly without being a nuisance.
The staff is incredibly friendly, professional and helpful. The breakfast is really good, and the restaurant is located right by the Mekong, so you have your morning cup of coffee sitting by the river and watching the boats go by. I stayed in one of the suites, the Lotus suite 2, which overlooks the courtyard, and has a big terrace. The suite was just wonderful, everything you could expect from a top hotel, very clean, beautifully decorated in Lao style with some Western touches, there is free wifi in the rooms and even an iPod docking system. Every night after turn down service there was a little gift on the bed, always a miniature version of something significant in Lao culture, such as a sticky rice basket or a mini fishing boat, with a little card explaining what it is, what it means and wishing you good night, such a lovely gesture!
I would stay here again without even having to think about it, and recommend this hotel to everybody.More
