This easily ranks as the #1 or #2 place that I have stayed at in SE Asia plus the French owner/manager here is fantastic (he worked in high end London restos for 20 years) and very helpful if you need any advice about Luang Prabang. I booked 6 days on Agoda and ended up staying 5 extra days for a lower rate (90k per night) b/c I did not use the A/C (Note: Extending should not be a problem if you tell Erich ahead of time and its not the high season).
The only issue might be that the rooms would be a bit small if you are coming from Europe with lots of big pieces of luggage. But for one or two people traveling from within the region, the rooms are just fine with almost no mosquitoes as all windows are properly screened (meaning they can only come in through the door if its left open) and the walls are thick so that your won't hear other guests.
Food and beverages are also available in the hotel's restaurant terrace/deck area between the front road and above the Mekong River. I ate both there plus I ate alot at a place two doors down simply b/c the menu at the place two doors down had pictures and the Lao spelling in Roman characters.
Wifi was adequate and no better or worst than other places in Laos - meaning uploading alot of pictures will be a pain (except maybe late at night) no matter where you are.
