“Wonderful hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

The staff here are great! Not in the heart of Luang Prabang but a short ride to the centre. The distance is quite walkable and staff will drive you (even out of shuttle bus times).
Rooms are delightful and they all overlook a beautifully maintained pool.
Restaurant is also very good, situated in a lovely garden setting, good food. Restaurant taff have broken English but they are very nice and aim to please always.
Breakfast is extremely well organised and extremely good, This is a superb hotel and I would definitely stay here again. A wonderful find.

Room Tip: All room are good, select ground floor if you prefer to not climb one flight of stairs.

Spent 3 nights at Le Sen in early November, and thought it was worth the price. sure, there are nice guesthouses in. Luang Prabang at great value, but if you want to pamper yourselves a little bit - this is the place. Great pool for swimming, open and lit till 10 pm - nice after a long dusty day exploring L.P. Excellent breakfast, in a garden area. Great beds & linen. Beautiful bathrooms. Helpful staff. Easy 10 min walk to town yet far enough away from night markets and late night tourists to be quiet. I used the pool a lot!

Room Tip: If yiu will be using the pool, you can get a room right along it... step from room to pool!

Everything about Le Sen was wonderful. We were particularly lucky to have an upgrade to The Villa but convinced that even the superior room would have been amazing. 3 fabulous days in Luang Prabang and this hotel really made our stay. We went for a sunset drink at La Residence and felt lucky to be going back to La Sen.

New, very stilish, 10 min walking distance from main touristy area, bright modern design rooms, feel good factor in all of the property and easy to remember a few years after your stay. Nice breakfast and swimmingpool although would have liked to have a bit more space and green around the pool. Good service inclusive of shuttle to touristy area and free of charge bikes. I was upgraded to a suite for my stay of 2 nights and it was one of the best rooms in which I habe ever stayed over my last 20 years of travel in VIP and backpacker style hotels. I also stayed at My Dream boutique resort and at Maison Dalabua. Maison Dalabua is priced at the same level but definetly far down in terms of facilities, rooms, service...... comparison can be made with My Dream boutique resort and I believe this place has a better interior but the pool and garden space are better at My dream boutique resort so if you intend to spend time next to the pool and relax maybe you can opt for My Dream but this is possibly just a matter of taste.

This is a lovely small hotel with excellent service. The pool is lovely and the selection at breakfast first class.
There's a free shuttle bus to/from the town although it's only 15 minutes walk. Even better is the free use of bikes. Just right for the slow pace of life (and traffic) here. There's even a gym not that we used it!
I don't think you could ask for more of an establishment of this size.

Room Tip: On arrival we were given a free upgrade to The Villa. So, it might be worth asking for a free upgra...

We thought that staying at Le Sen for 4 nights just fitted the bill for us. Staff were delightful and the charming French manageress efficiently looked after the running of the main desk and breakfast area whilst we were there. Agree with those who said how accommodating the staff were with taking us into town (there were 4 of us) when we wanted in the evening - and dropping us off at the restaurant we wanted as well on a couple of occasions. There was only one occasion when we needed to get the tuk-tuk back to the hotel. Very pleasant room on 1st floor with sitting area outside on balcony and bedroom with all facilities - good bathroom too.
We thought the breakfast was excellent, you can choose how you want your fried breakfast, and very varied choice of other things. Nice to be outside the general hubbub of the centre of the town.

Re: discussion about the sunbeds. For those who haven't been to Le Sen it is impossible for everyone to have sunbeds in this boutique hotel as there simply isn't the room. When there is a full hotel, those on the 1st floor won't be able to have sunbed .The downstairs rooms only have one sunbed per double room. Fortunately we were there when it wasn't full, so were able to ask if we could have a couple of sunbeds moved near the pool, as well as enjoying our balcony on the 1st floor.

Lunchtime snacks/light meal. Great place just opposite the hotel with great value for money.

Le Sen is a small hotel within Luang Prabang with very friendly staff. The facilities are good (rooms and pool) and very clean. The breakfast is excellent and the atmosphere is very relaxed. They also provide free transport shuttles to the centre (which you could do by foot even) and provide bicycles as well. They knowledge of English and even French is very good.

Overall a very good stay.

Room Tip: You can ask for a ground floor room if you want easy access to the pool.
