The Apsara was the perfect choice for our first visit to Luang Prabang. The central location meant we could easily explore the town on foot but the location along the riverfront meant it was still relaxing and peaceful at the hotel. We stayed in an upstairs room and everything from the gorgeous decor to special touches (like chilled beer glasses...

Did not look anywhere else for our return to Luang Prabang as our first experience was memborable for the excellent level of service from the staff and the comfy large rooms. This trip our small group booked three standard rooms that are a little apart from the main building which houses the reception area, bar and restaurant. We enjoyed having...

I stayed here for several nights. The rooms were quiet, clean and well appointed. The location is very central and within walking distance of many sights. Being right across from the river makes it a good location for relaxing with a drink, people watching or hopping on a boat for a tour. The staff here were absolutely wonderful. Polite, cheery...

It was a great start to the stay, they were so welcoming when they picked me up from the airport and thanked me for visiting their city. They went through the map and local attractions, which was so helpful as well. The room was quite large and the decor was very charming in a traditional sense. It was so clean,...

This was our first time to Luang Prabang and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Aspara. We had a room that opened up to the street which was right across from the river. Luang Prabang is not a big city so the street traffic was not that busy or noisy. The room was comfortable and had a rustic and...

our room was spacious and comfortable, with a good bathroom. The breakfast was good in parts; fruit and eggs OK, bread boring. The hotel is very well situated, so that you can walk to temples, market etc. The restaurant, for lunch or dinner, was very good. Staff were helpful, We can recommend this convenient and pleasant hotel.

Small hotel in an old building so high ceilings and big rooms. More atmosphere than the average new build "boutique" hotel. Ideally placed for visiting the old town and going to cafes bars and restaurants.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The first and still one of the most beautiful boutique hotels in Luang Prabang, the Apsara was originally a rice warehouse situated on the banks of the Nam Khan [The quieter side of town]. The Apsara is also right in the heart of the heritage village, making it the perfect place to stay. From the comfort of its large, airy bedrooms, rated by the Washington Post as "an inch beyond decadence", it's easy to explore temples and the lanes of Luang Prabang. After which you can relax on the river terrace and enjoy the spectacular views and a refreshing Beer Laos. But that's not all, our restaurant is well known for having one of the most interesting menus in town as well as a superb wine list and the driest martinis in Laos. As Hip Hotels said "Both the restaurant and bar reflect a refined sense of taste" and who are we to argue with that. ... more   less
