The hotel looked great on the web, good reviews too. We were really looking forward to spending some quiet, relaxing, few days there before we flew home. Sadly the photo on the web site was well cropped and did not reveal the main road running past the hotel.
We found the hotel extremely noisy. Not just from the heavy trucks, bikes and cars from the road, but simply because of the where the hotel is and the topology of the land. The hotel sits on a small hill above the town and somehow all the noise from Luang Prabang percolates up during the day and night.
The odd thing is that the town itself is very quiet at night.
But, this is not the hotel's fault and we had great service and a lovely room. The rooms are rather oddly positioned. Which means few have a direct view on to anything. So I'd check which room you have and whether there is a decent window. The ground floor ones were pretty claustrophobic. We pointed this out and they found us a much better room on the 1st floor. Nice staff and the hotel manager is very caring.
Breakfast was excellent.
