Amazing staff, great location, would come back for sure. The hotel is close to all best spots in Luang Prabang, which is quite easy since it's a very small town, but still totally worth it. The rooms are extremely comfy and quite. I fell in love with Luang Prabang and this hotel did a lot for that!!
