If you love the Mekong River - stay at that hotel. The setting is really beautiful and you will surely always enjoy the boat trip across the river when you arrive there. But there are also some disadvantages to that striking location: If you want to leave your hotel room just to go for a short stroll around the beautiful...

You will do well to find better views from the riverfront terrace. Panoramic mountains and the magical Mekong will take your breath away. Many will find that enough to stay there. The rooms are spacious and the grounds are attractive. The box, if you like is designed very well, it's the contents inside that need some work: The shower holder...

I choose carefully via trip advisor to choose this hotel, out of town yes, but here in Luang Prabang so it is just a few minutes from the city, this is not Paris or New York, 10 minutes max driving to get there....another few minutes to cross the Mekong with the hotel boat, nice and peaceful, and you arrive in...

The hotel is located on a bank of Mekong river, in front of the town. And this really makes it's location unique, especially having breakfast in the restaurant of the hotel, which is hanging high over Mekong river, and observing the mist, raising from the water. Hotel offers a river crossing boat and this makes each trip to the town...

Initial thought was what the hell have I done. The river crossing and a [--] of steep stairs each side make any trip into town difficult. A night out on the town is out of the question As with any resort that has no competition (once you are here you are stuck) Alcohol and food prices are steep. Rooms and...

The hotel is situated on the Mekong River, but downstream and on the opposite side of the river from the town. This makes for a bit of a hike every time you want to go in to Luang Prabang. The hotel offers a ferry ride and car to a central location in the town centre, but prefer that you stick...

We were upgraded to the deluxe suite which means a huge room, nicely appointed, with a balcony overlooking the river. The Good: stunning loction right on the Mekong. No other resort nearby means its quiet and tranquil (except of course for the omnipresent sound of construction we encountered throughout our travels in the region). Large, beautiful grounds. Nothing finer than...

I highly recommend the hotel Saynamkhan. Firstly the welcome was very warm and the atmosphere was very friendly. The room was very clean, mini bar and overlooking the Khan river with a beautiful terrace. The breakfast was excellent with very good pancake. Furthermore the hotel is very well positioned in the historic district

Firstly, the worst thing about this hotel is it's location. Although they offer a boat and then car to the town whenever you wish, it is still a hassle to get there. They also don't like when you want to stay out late in the evening. The staff seemed displeased with my partner and i asking to be picked up...

The most important factor with this place is the location. Its good because its lovely surrounds with a beautiful view over the Mekong. However its a major effort to get too and from. We had to make our own way as we received no replies to emails and we had to ask around alot before we found a Tuk Tuk...
