Le Sen Boutique Hotel
Ranked #2 of 71 Hotels in Luang Prabang
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 October 2013

I stayed for three nights in June and enjoyed this stylish boutique hotel. Good value for money and a little off the main stip of town, it offers a quieter experience in a beautifully designed setting.
The staff are friendly, although English is limited.
The breakfast was wonderful, I tried almost everything!
The rooms were wonderfully designed, the pool a cool relief, and the gym pretty impressive for such a small property.
I would definitely recommend and stay here again!

I stayed at Le Sen the weekend of October 2-5. I was there for the Luang Prabang 1/2 Marathon and traveled with a friend. The hotel is brand new, rooms are spacious and very comfortable, bathrooms super nice. The breakfast was really nice every morning and we had lunch one day there before we left and the food was amazing! wish we had eaten there more. The hotel is set a little bit out of town but not too far (tuk tuks are not cheap in LP (not like thailand or Cambodia) the cost in and out of town was about $7USD each way and it's a 3-5 minute ride. We were quoted many different prices so it was never consistent and it's per person not per ride...just a tip) Overall an excellent staff and wonderful place to stay. Great value!

I really enjoyed my stay at Le Sen. It was relaxing and very satisfying.

There are not a lot of negatives but the two main downsides to this wonderful hotel are the location and the breakfast. It's located away from the sights and night market. A free shuttle bus service was offered and that helped a lot. It'll drop you off at the Post Office right next to the night market on the main street. As long as you aren't picky about waiting for and taking a shuttle bus at designated times, the location issue isn't a big deal.

The breakfast however, could be much improved. There weren't many options available. There was an egg and fresh noodle station but not much else, only a handful of fruit plates and pastries. However, the breakfast area was shady, not hot and relaxing to be at every morning.

On the other hand, the gym was fantastic and honestly, its rather difficult to find a gym of this standard in Luang Prabang. If you're a fitness buff who loves to work out, this is probably the best hotel gym (for this price range) in Luang Prabang. No questions about that. If working out every day matters to you, you will thoroughly enjoy the small but well equipped gym here. There's a Smith machine and even a free weight Olympic Barbell.

We stayed in a suite room and enjoyed the jacuzzi bathtub in the room. Take note that the Suite and Villa rooms are right next to the breakfast/dining area so you will hear some noise in the morning. Not a problem if you are an early waker. In any case, the noise is minimal. Also, the suite rooms are located on the second floor so that's a bonus.... you won't hear anyone walking around above you.

There are black-out curtains so they do keep the room nice and dark. Sound-proofing wasn't too bad. You could definitely hear other guests at the pool and sometimes your neighbors but generally, its much better than expected. When it gets dark, the hotel gets really quiet and is very conducive to sleep.

The service was excellent. Shuttle bus drivers were polite at all times. Front desk people as well. It's nice to see smiling faces when you walk around the place!

Room Tip: Suite rooms come with a nice jacuzzi bathtub for relaxing soaks after a long day out!

Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at Le Sen. We had a problem with one of our cameras and they arranged for their shuttle to take us to the camera shop - the kind of service that only comes from a very few hotels. Always friendly and ready to help this little hotel offers an oasis of calm and tranquility. The rooms are a good size, air conditioned and clean. The restaurant offers a good choice of food at reasonable prices and a great breakfast. Would not consider staying anywhere else in Luang Prabang.

Room Tip: Layout of hotel means very little difference between rooms.

Stayed here 4 nights on October 2013. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. The hotel looks and is very new. It's small with only around 15 rooms centred around a pool. Location is about 15 minutes walk from the night market but they have bikes to use for free and I found this was the best way to get around and explore. There is also a bus shuttle service to the edge of town but I didn't find that useful. Staff are very helpful and helped me with booking trips to the Cave down the mekong and also to the kuang si falls. Overall an excellent hotel and a great destination.

I don't give out excellent ratings very often, but I could not fault Le Sen Boutique.

It is a small sized boutique hotel which offers everything you could need.

The room is well set out, functional and beautiful, as is the resort itself.

Breakfast is a good selection of quality food.

The gym is well equipped.

The service is excellent without being intrusive. All the staff are lovely.

It is about a 15 minute easy walk out of town, which we didn't find a problem. A shuttle runs regularly and bicycles are provided free of charge.

The only suggestion I would have would be more seating around the pool.

I would recommend this hotel without hesitation. Enjoy!
