We loved our stay in this beautiful hotel in Luang Prabang. The rooms were very clean & beautifully decorated & the spacious balcony overlooking the Mekong was well used for evening drinks. Plentiful drinking water, complimentary mini bar & evening "goodnight gifts" were very much appreciated. Breakfast on the restaurant balcony was a treat with delicious local specialties, fresh juices...

situated near the mekong river, it's very convenient for transportation. i really like it's architecture. Staff is friendly and helpful. i do not see many local people and shop around, so quite and fresh. It's suitable if you want to stay at the hotel to relax. it is better if hotel has swimming pool.
