An absolutely marvellous stylish, boutique hotel at the junction of two major rivers. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast and meals across the road adjacent to the rivers edge. Fantastic electric beds for extra comfort. Swedish owner has a very ethical approach to staff and the environment. Free transport to town assisted when necessary. Old town close for walking access....

A lovely hotel, lots of Laos charm and a beautiful view of the river from your balcony. The breakfast area is delightful and the staff are so friendly and helpful. I would return in a heartbeat. It might seem expensive but the location is unbeatable and everything is within walking distance.

First time to Luang Prabang, so very surprised how clean it was and this property FAR exceeded our expectations. Small, quaint, CLEAN, fabulous staff and the owner lives on site is most gracious and welcoming. They have bicycles on site that offered us an afternoon of exploring this beautiful interesting city. I would recommend this hotel to all!

I loved this hotel! I think this is the best welcome I have had anywhere in the world! The staff were so helpful and friendly from the minute they picked us up at the airport, and on arrival at the hotel, showing us through the local map and pointing out their favourite locations. The room wasn't perfect, perhaps the shower...

True hospitality marked our first encounter with the staff when we were greeted at the airport and arrived at the hotel, and also later when we met the owner, mr. Paulsson. He is frequently present, that itself guarantees a comfortable stay at the hotel. The location is great and quiet at the confluence of the Mekong and Nam Khan river....

As I understand it, this charming and beautiful hotel was lovingly and painstakingly built by its owner/proprietor from what was once a French Colonial home on the Mekong. For 27 years, the owner, Mr. Urban Paulson, ran a hotel in Lund, Sweden with his brother, and more or less accidentally found himself helping someone out in, and then falling in...

Had the pleasure of staying here on a business trip. Upon arrival was welcomed with a cold, refreshing beverage and friendly staff who escorted me and my bags to my ground floor room. The room was beautifully decorated with a patio overlooking the Mekong River. Everything about this hotel was perfect including the buffet breakfast across the street. It's so...
