Hmm I have mixed views on this one. After reading the reviews of this hotel, my friend and I opted to fork out a little bit extra. We stayed for 4 nights. I requested a twin room, but we shared a double on the first night, which wasn't a problem as we were reassured that we could be moved the next day. The room was of average size, mosquito net around the bed, nice bathroom. The girl at reception was very friendly and helpful and helped arrange our excursion to the Kuang Si waterfall. All was well until we were moved into the requested twin room on the 2nd night. There was a large foot-sized hole in the bottom of the bath - when I informed the girl at reception, we were told to continue showering in it, despite the fact that it was obviously going to flood the bathroom and possibly the room below! I tried to shower in this and it was hopeless as the bottom of the bath was so flimsy. Reluctantly, the girl agreed to move us into the only other available room. It was a double but we agreed to share as we had no other option. However, the girl did not feel the need to tell us that the a/c was BROKEN and it was the most uncomfortable, hottest night of our entire one month holiday. Needless to say, we were not impressed the next morning, when we realised that she had known the entire time that it was already broken. We were extra unimpressed when there was no discount on the total bill to take into account that we had moved into 3 different rooms, 2 with significant problems. The cost of the place is way too expensive compared to some of the other great places we have stayed in Southeast Asia. It's a shame as our first impressions were promising. I'm sure there are better places to stay in Luang Prabang - don't bother to stay here.
