Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We arrived in the middle of January and I'm not sure if it was unseasonably cold or not, but I was freezing! (and I'm from Seattle!) Our room was upstairs with a lovely balcony with a view of the river, comfortable bed with a thick comforter (thank god!). During the day the temperature was fine, even warm, but at night it was cold...and no heat in your room. We arrived late so had dinner at the hotel the first night, the meal was good (but the best part was the little charcoal burner under the table to keep you warm), all the tables for dining are outside, so even breakfast was chilly, the waiters actually had gloves on the next morning! The bathroom was nice, but without heat I could see my breath in the morning, more hot water and pressure would have been nice. I understand that most of the year it is very warm in Luang Prabang....but if you're there in January bring warm clothes.

We loved Luang Prabang and would have like to have stayed longer. The night market is wonderful and there are some wonderful shops to discover. We also took the morning river boat ride to the Buddha caves and went to the waterfalls that have the elephant ride (see photos). Riding the elephant was probably one of the highlights of my whole three week trip. The falls are beautiful...there is another waterfall we didn't get to, I believe it is bigger...but no elephants.

The second night there we went to L'Elephant for dinner, fabulous! one of our best meals on the trip. In fact it was so good we went back the next night. (We were going to go to the Tamarind, but we saw the same family with their three unruly children we had already suffered through on the flight in, so we changed plans and went back to L'Elephant and were very glad we did!).

The temples in Lugang Prabang are amazing, so is the museum. Also a nice photo exhibit called "The Floating Buddha" you should see....I believe it is a permanent exhibit. We had three days in Luang Prabang and it wasn't long enough, we needed at least one more day to see everything, preferably two more.

Nothing to complain really. Food was decent and service was great. But equally - absolutely nothing spectacular either. It wasn’t a meal I’d remember at all. Lao food is what we ate and we’ve eaten far better, more flavourful food at places like Tamarind. I think this place is trying to be French and Lao at the same time and therefore not really delivering on either. Super expensive at that.

This old mansion has been restored within an inch of it's life and is SO glamourous! It looks out over the Mekong and the terrace provides a beautiful elevated position from which to view the world passing by. I didn't dine but did spend a delicious couple of hours with a gin and tonic.
One of the waiters gave me a guided tour, so sweet. The decor is really gorgeous and very opulent. They deserved to be busier. It was pretty new, I think, when I was there and I'm sure that busyness will come.
I think the owners are Canadian, hence to hybrid and less than glamourous name

We had dinner with a group of 12, including 6 kids, on the first floor of Calao, overlooking the Mekong river. We chose a tasting menu, with 5 typical Lao dishes. Each of them was excellent, with a special 5-start for a Mekong fish with ananas dish. The place used to be a hotel and has been transformed into a restaurant by a French Lao entrepreneur who now has 5 restaurants in the city. The decoration is still on going and promises to be spectacular. There are a few smaller private rooms where you can host a party and the restaurant is even equipped to host business meetings. Great setting for a romantic dinner as well.

It is more of a theme or function restaurant rather than a hotel. there is not a single bed and there is no signboard or name fixed at the entrance. It may be a hotel a few years ago so it should be removed from the list.
