I stayed here last time I came to Luang Prabang and was happy to return on my latest trip. The rooms are clean, modern and serviceable. The beds are however, very firm and so are the pillows. I find that after a week or so, I'm looking forward to my own not-so-firm bed! The view in the name is across roofs and tree tops towards the Nam Khan, but the outlook to the mountains is delightful – ask for one of the Mountain View Rooms, which are on the upper floor and have private balconies. There's free WiFi which is quite reliable and reasonably fast. Located in a quiet spot in the old part of town, along the ‘main’ road (Sisavangvong/Sakkaline) it's only a modest walk to where all the shops and restaurants are and, of course, the night markets. We stayed once before down by the river and, especially in peak season, it can be very noisy there at night.
There are only eight rooms and the staff are great, always happy to go the extra mile to make sure your stay is comfortable. Every morning, the housekeeping staff fold the fresh towels into clever arrangements – lotus flowers, swans, elephants – it’s fun to return to the room each day and discover the latest surprise! Every evening, at turndown, a snack (usually local sweet food) was left for me and this was a much appreciated gesture (and delicious too!) Breakfast is usually included in the tariff and while it’s basic it’s perfectly adequate and taken on the balcony, looking over to the temples across the road. We have found it to be good value and we’ll stay there again when we return to Luang Prabang.
