The Xiengthong Palace is located right next to the Mekong river, right in the middle of the old part of Luang Prabang. All the sites are within easy walking distance.
The staff is very attentive and friendly. Always willing to help, and welcoming you with a smile. The director, who comes from Spain, greeted the guests during breakfast time and provided us with very interesting information about Laos (difficult to have obtained from anyone else!). He does a great job!!
Rooms and facilities are very good. We even got an upgrade to a suite, as we were travelling in a party of three.
Breakfasts are sumptuous and delicious. You can sit in the gardens with views over the Mekong, which is just around 10 metres away from you. Could not be more romantic!
I would definitely recommend the Xiengthong Palace to anyone!
