We were lucky enough to spend 4 nights at Le Sen back in June. Right from the email correspondence with Noi to the moment we left, the service was absolutely brilliant.
The hotel is still very new and very clean throughout. You can't help but want to throw yourself in the pool every time you see it! The room was lovely and spacious with a balcony with comfy chairs overlooking the pool. The bed was incredibly comfy and the rain-effect shower was great. Breakfast was good, with a lot of choice. For the first 3 mornings we had to tick as many options as we wanted from a menu and they would bring everything out to you, but on our final morning it was a self-service buffet and I have to say I preferred the original method, but it was all good! We also made use of the gym whilst we were there, which was perfect for a light workout.
I gave the location 4 instead of 5 only because on our first evening we walked back from town at around 10pm and the roads aren't well lit along the way, which made me a little nervy/prone to trip! But the hotel has free bicycle rental which we took advantage of - excellent! All in all though, the hotel is just a 10/15 minute walk or a 5 minute cycle to the night market.
I would highly recommend Le Sen to anybody wanting to visit Luang Prabang. We will be hard-pushed to come across better service than what was given to us by their excellent staff. We didn't want to leave!
