Perfect location, lovely clean big room. Great staff with free airport transfer, good breakfast. Lovely cafe downstairs with freshly baked cakes. Our only gripe was the poor WiFi connection - kept dropping off every few mins & u had to re-enter log in details. We got around this by visiting nearby bars instead (a minor gripe and not a reason not to stay)!
Overall, we would highly recommend the Ancient LP - please note, we stayed at Ban Pakham (there are two Ancient LP hotels).

I found the rooms, large, clean, quiet and comfortable. The bathroom is fine. Lots of hot water. The showers are enclosed in a separate area within the room, but do not have a door, so some may feel exposed. However you are not showering exposed as some reviews suggest. I will try to post a photo.

The location is great. I have no complaints and would stay here again.

This review is for the Phoneheung Hotel.
We stayed here as our originally booked hotel was little out of town so wanted to bit closer to the town centre and that it is. Close to the temples, cafés, bars restaurants and Main Street. Our stay was fine for purpose, the service is ok and the staff are helpful. The rooms are ok a bit shabby.
The wifi is none existent we didn't not have any connection throughout our stay.

We had the Tiger room. Different from what we had become accustom too in a good way. Not much of a view but it had a great bed and room enough for all our stuff. The shower was a concrete room with a patio door. It worked and it was clean....but kinda funky.
The hotel is right beside the night market and across from the venue where the stage performances were for the festival.
We didn't know about the roof top lounge until after we had checked out. They let us spend a couple of hours up there while we waited for our ride to the airport. Make sure you take advantage of this feature. It gives you a great view down the main street and would probably be a good place to enjoy a libation and watch the night market from. There didn't appear to be any service but we brought a beer up from the lobby without any questions asked.
A very good place to base your Laos expeditions from.

Firstly, when reading the reviews please bear in mind there are two hotels with this name and some of the poorer reviews refer to the other hotel which is at Phoneheung..

There is nothing bad I can say about this place - this boutique hotel is well placed right by the night market and night food market and a good location for visiting the other sights here.

The rooms are all named after a sign of the zodiac and are really well decorated - there is free water and fruit provided every day -there is good Wi-fi and the showers are open planed which we loved.

The breakfast is provided downstairs at their bakery./cafe site and is fantastic with a variety to choose from - the muesli is exceptional also their cakes and coffee make a great afternoon treat.

The staff could not do anything more for you and are always happy and smiley - they will even teach you some Laos language too if you want.

There is also free hotel pick up and drop off

Was very sorry to leave...

Room Tip: The little stalls opposite the hotel prepare baguettes starting at just over $1 and for dinner the n...

We stayed at Ancient Luangprabang - Phoneheung for 10 days in the king room that consists of 2 balconies and a jacuzzi. The room was clean, spacious and the staff were attentive. The breakfast is a little average however there is a French patisserie around the corner that did the job. Location is fairly quiet (15 mins walk to city centre) and the monks walk past every for 'tak bat' which is lovely to see or be part of.

If you are heading there during low season, you may find you have more variety to choose from and more competitive prices. I thought Ancient LPB was slightly over priced. Otherwise, book early during high season so you're not disappointed.

I love the fact that they dont have room numbers, but rather little animals to show you which room is yours. Staff is so friendly and helpful and wants to do everything and more for you. Rooms are bright, clean and beautiful. Open bathrooms make traveling with friends of opposite sex a bit tricky, we had the rule that the person not showering was not allowed to peek, but had to watch tv, play on computer, or be outside. It worked for us.
Breakfast choices are great. Free car service to airport or bus station. Good working wi-fi. Loved it there!
