This is a well looked after and carefully preserved boutique hotel. We stayed for a couple of nights, enjoying Christmas Day in this fascinating city.
The hotel is an ex palace as the name suggests and has been lovingly restored to give a wonderful glimpse of its former glory. The rooms are spacious and well planned, with amenities abound. The staff are amazing and very keen to help you get the most of your stay. We had a problem with a lack of hot water and the manager promptly ensured that our stay was not impacted by moving us to another room.
The restaurant overlooks the Mekong River and the quality of the food is as good as you could enjoy in a large city. The hotel is also yards away from the Wat which houses the most amazing architecture and that coupled with the monks who walk by for their morning alms makes this a place to cherish and remember very fondly.
