We were happily greeted with a large, wooden room full of teak furniture with a big double bed and a private enclosed balcony. The next morning we woke up and I had a look out the window to find we were slap bang in the middle of the main tourist stretch of road. A bad thing? Nope. All trucks and loud cars are banned in Luang Prabang to preserve it's World Heritage Sight ambiance. Staff were friendly but the restaurant never seemed to open. This is no bad thing as there are loads just round the corner. Highly recommended and great for it's price tag.
