The Apsara is a wonderful hotel - and quite rightly deserves its place in the Hip Hotels guide. The whole hotel is very stylish and the staff are extremly helpful. Having tried both the 3 Nagas and the Apsara - the Apsara wins hands down.

We stayed in both the standard and delux rooms and although both were excellent, we loved the room above the restaurant best, and could have happily stayed for weeks! The furnishings are so tasteful and the beds very comfortable - add to this a view of the river and life going by - what more could you want.

It is also definately at the best end of town - very quiet and elegant - there are pizza bars at the other end!

The food in the restaurant was excellent - try the onion tart. And the wine is very good and reasonably priced.

All in all the best place in town

Thank You Apsara

We stayed for 2 nights, the website was down so we just turned up and booked in.
The room was really nice, big comfy bed, the best shower I've ever used...but no fridge or TV. Some might say $70 is a lot for no fridge or TV (I guess it is) but they weren't missed for 2 nights.

Our room overlooked the river and a few restaurants; the main street is only a few minutes walk away providing everything you're likely to need.
Breakfast - fab. bacon and eggs, thick crusty baguette toast...v.nice.

However, on the first afternoon my girlfriend "lost" an expensive pair of shorts in the hotel laundry, i.e. they weren't returned...she called several times and they were apparently looked for; I just had the feeling the hotel could've done a bit more. Certainly not an insurance fiddle as we had none!

This marred the stay there and will stick in the mind.

Also, if you're NOT paying in cash dollars, ensure you know exactly what you should pay...I was asked for 8,000 baht instead of 4,000 but that may well be a genuine mistake and it was quickly corrected.

Wonderful place with old world charm. Very large rooms and baths. Great staff and breakfast. You can walk everywhere from here. We also like the Baan Chang Inn, ,near 3 Nagas on Sak Karin Road, no web site yet. phone (856-71) 253553
Very fun and nice staff. Transfer from airport in 1960 mercedes
Great rooms very deluxe interior. Better priced than Aspara or 3 negas. Enjoy. Try the breakfast at the 3 Nagas and resturants along the Mekong river. Also elephant ride and water falls a must do trip.

After reading many positive reviews, we opted for The Apsara and loved it! Luang Prabang is an absolute gem of a place and the Apsara is just behind the main street, so quiet and peaceful enough to hear the chanting of the monks and the banging of their early morning drums. We had room 5, a spacious, elegant corner room with a good view over the river to the terraces beyond. The other rooms in the main hotel seemed to have trees blocking their view. Staff were friendly, observant and attentive without being fussy, the food was delicious and well priced. My only complaint is that smoking was allowed in the dining room and I found this unpleasant.
