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.

Sada Hotel was beautiful! The staff was welcoming and very happy to see us although their Engish was limited. They walked us into a courtyard past the coy pond and up a flight of stairs to our suite. Our entrance overlooked the big swimming pool. We opened the door to an expansive room with beautiful old furniture, a gorgeous wooden floor, and a full wall of floor to ceiling windows. One window was actually a door to the balcony which overlooked the courtyard and coy pond and ran the length of our room. It had two chairs and a table. In the room was a large bed that was very comfortable. There was a good deal of storage in the furniture. The furniture included a desk and chair and a table set for dinner with two chairs. There were also two casual chairs and a coffee table where we watched TV until we realized there was little in English. The staff put fruit on the coffee table daily. In the armoire were two robes. The bathroom included a shower, a soaking tub and a sink. Breakfast was included and was served in a beautiful dining rom on the first floor. The pool was warm and clean and empty of guests when we were there. About a mile away is a night market which includes a large eating space with numerous food vendors and many food choices. It is walkable if you can walk about a mile in the heat, but tuk-tuks are easily found and very inexpensive. Have Lao money in small amounts to pay. A tuk-tuk to the night market was about $3.00 or as much as $5.00 when they picked us up in the pouring rain. Sada was peaceful and relaxing and the price was very reasonable.

Loved the room as soon as I walked in and saw all the dark wood. It indeed looks like a tropical lodge. A very large clean, well-appointed room. And with a balcony!

The location was on a main street with an ATM just across the street, but no noise. About 20 minutes of walking to the city center's night market, or get an inexpensive ride.

Staff was friendly, helpful.

Enjoyed the option of eating breakfast outside near the street, sheltered by an awning.

Really liked being there, would be my first choice if I ever return to Luang Prabang.

We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed the stay.

The staff are quite nice and helpful.

The center of the town is a short fifteen minute walk away. ATM close by. Nice pool, however it was very cool when we were staying.

Would definitely return.

Personal poco servicial y apenas habla inglés .
No merece las 4 estrellas que dice tener.
No te dan segunda llave ( tarjeta de plástico) sin pagar una fianza y si la pierdes estás perdido tú.
No tienen hielo , si lo van a comprar para el cliente , se lo cobran al cliente.
No tienen bebidas normales ( coca cola y tónica)
No tienen café ni té fuera del horario de desayuno.
La recepción está en obras ( polvo por doquier)
La situación no es céntrica y el barrio es feo.
Mala relación calidad/precio
Además bañera sin mampara y sin cortina y sin sitio para apoyar el neceser.

The staff wasn’t friendly and barely spoke english.
You don’t get a second key card unless you leave a deposit. Don’t you dare to lose the card or the only one who will be lost is you!
They have no ice and if you order it they will charge it to your room!
They have no normal soda drinks like Coke or tonic water.
No coffee , no tea , only during breakfast time.
The reception is being built ( dust everywhere)
The hotel is far from the down town. The area is not that nice.
Far too expensive for the quality they offer.
No shower curtain or division , no space to leave ypur beauty case.

We arrived at this quaint little hotel after a strenuous 9.5 hour bus ride from Loei in North-East Thailand. As soon as we got there they greeted us with smiles and checked us in promptly.

The staff were very helpful and friendly. They were always quick to assist with any needs we had and always with a big smile!

There is a free hotel shuttle bus that takes you to the Town centre, of which is about 2km away. The shuttle bus details its set drop-off and pick-up up times to and from the centre, but as the hotel was quiet when we stayed, the staff very kindly arranged for us drop-offs and pick-ups whenever we requested it! This was so thoughtful of them and a fantastic example of excellent customer service!

In terms of location, I think it's a good thing being 2km from the town as it's not at all far and it means you can escape the hustle and bustle of the town centre. In addition to the shuttle service, you can also rent bikes for free and it really doesn't take long to get there, either way!

The included breakfast was also excellent and served fresh and with care, unlike many other hotels that serve a fly-riddanded buffet that's been sitting out for God-knows how long!

The hotel in itself is very tastefully decorated in a beautiful and traditional Laos-style. The pool area is very tranquil and spacious, with comfortable deck chairs to soak up the sunshine. The only thing I'd suggest perhaps the hotel should boost the WiFi as it was hard to get a good signal in our room at times, but this wasn't a major issue.

All in all if you want a peaceful and relaxing stay then I thoroughly recommend this hotel! Thank you to everyone here for the fantastic stay!

First impression of the room was that the room smelled rather of smoke but the bed was beautifully made up and the bed was massive – big enough to sleep four. We were in Room 205, unfortunately there was a dog barking outside much of the time as well as a cockerel outside in the mornings which I didn’t object to as much. There was also banging from building work going on. There is a table and chairs on the balcony. The wifi once it got going was fine. There is a kettle, tea and coffee.

The room needed a good dust especially the wood carvings over the bed, floor around bedside table, and the bedside table surface was sticky.

The bathroom (which was dark) has a corner bath with shower above but no shower curtain, it is difficult not to soak the floor. There are no surfaces to place toiletries – a few toiletries are supplied but not replenished. I couldn’t tell the hot tap from the cold which was risky as the hot water was extremely hot.

Visiting here as part of a tour of Indochina it was noticeable that staff were less smart. However they were very friendly and helpful and will iron as it is not permitted to iron in the room. Breakfast here was regarded by many in our group as excellent. It is possible to have seating outside for breakfast however this is up against a busy road. There is shuttle bus the short distance to the centre.

The rooms are nice and clean, beds are good and staff is very friendly (as most Lao are). The hotel is however quite noisy. Noise comes both from the road (ask for a room away from the road) and from the water pipes inside the hotel. You can tell when others open the tap. Wifi is only available in the restaurant and rooms close to it. Breakfast is very basic.

Sada Hotel is a business class hotel situated along the main commercial area. It is just a couple of minutes away either by bicycle or shuttle from the major heritage sites along the peninsula. The owners spared no expense in choosing the best quality wood finishing. Upon entering the hotel i was worried about the sound coming from the main street. I asked to see the room facing the main street and found that there was double glazing in the room. Sound level was acceptable. However I chose the room away from the main street. Rooms were decent, large, bright and well appointed and the baths are rather spacious. Courtyard of greenery was a nice sight. All rooms have a terrace or balcony. Recommended.

We chose this hotel after coming off a three flight journey to get to Luang Prabang mainly because it had a pool, and the hotel looked nice. The trouble was that the pool itself wasn't great - there wasn't a lot of shade around it, and there seemed to be a lot of bits in the water. It was great being in the cooling water, but the amount of stuff in the water was a bit off putting.

The bedroom we had was huge, and very attractive. The beds were very comfortable and the bedding was great. There's a nasty little mini step up from the bathroom into the bedroom, and I managed to cut my toe - so try and avoid that!

We had a bit of a problem at check-in, as they tried to charge us an exchange fee, despite the booking clearly saying that it was included. It seemed to take a long time of us insisting that we weren't going to pay it, before they finally agreed that it was included!

Breakfast was very good, with plenty amount of choice, including a hot station in the corner that we didn't discover until the second morning! Don't miss out on your pancake or omelette - they were great.

It's quite a reasonable walk into town, so the shuttle bus was very useful. We walked back to the hotel a couple of times, as it was easier than trying to arrange a collection - but it's a good bit of exercise.

There are quite a few shops nearby that are good for stocking up on food, and I also bought a SIM card in one of the shops at the crossroads.

If I make it to Luang Prabang again, I would try another hotel with (hopefully) a cleaner pool.

I call this place a hidden gem for a reason. From the street, you don't see what a beautiful serene place this is until you enter the courtyard. I agree with previous positive reviews regarding the large rooms and accommodating staff. We stayed during low season so no buffet to evaluate, only a small breakfast menu to chose from.
