We spent 5 delightful days at the Palace. Our Mekong Suite was a spacious and had a great view. The breakfast buffet was excellent, and the lunch and dinner service was equally impressive. Staff is very attentive and the Massage service is something you don't want to miss.

We came here for lunch, having stumbled across this restaurant. What a find - the meal was without question the tastiest meal we'd had in Laos (and we've had many!). Service is super-attentive. The restaurant is set in a beautiful old colonial building with a view of the Mekong River. You must try it.

We have just arrived at the Victoria Xiengthong Palace, as a part of an extended trip in the region. We have never visited Laous (and indeed Luang Prabang) previously and this was therefore the section of the trip that we were most excited about. Our first impressions are that Luang Prabang is a charming town, with stunning mountainous backdrops. The...

Spa hotel with good sized rooms, nicely appointed. Appreciated the free mini bar, stocked with beer and soft drinks. However, seemed a little soulless in a town like luang prabang. Although my room was billed as a 'suite' (jasmine 2), it wasn't really. Just an L shaped setup with the wardrobe in the corridor and a tiny lobby area.
