I visited Luang Prabang for the first time in November 2012, and opted for the Apsara on the basis of its central location. What an excellent choice it turned out to be. It is on a quiet street overlooking the Nam Khan river, within very easy walking distance of all corners of the historic city centre, and with very comfortable...

The Apsara is great. Clean, spacious and comfortable. It is an extremely attractive hotel which is well located. Breakfast was great. They kept our bags for us whilst we were on an overnight trek and we felt that our belongings were safe throughout our stay. The in room info pack was really helpful.

Our first trip to Laos and a wonderful place to start. Luang Prabang is pure magic, and this hotel added to the experience. Clean and stylish rooms in a quiet location that is still close enough to all the action. The balcony was perfect. The locks on the door could be made to feel a bit more secure, but no...

For our first hotel in Laos, we couldn't have made a better choice. The Apsara is wonderfully located overlooking the river and just far enough away from the center to be quiet. The rooms are spacious and well appointed with comfortable beds and beautiful linen. The bathroom was huge with a great rainwater shower and good pressure. Staff at the...

Our first visit to Laos and we would go back here in a heartbeat. Staff was friendly and helpful in every way. The location is perfect and LP is small enough to walk almost everywhere in the old city from the hotel. Our room was on the front and overlooked the river with a narrow terrace. Bedding was high quality,...

It just doesn't get any better. the setting is beautiful, overlooking the Nam Khan River with excellent inside decor and ambiance, especially with the sounds of lounge jazz wafting onto the veranda. The Service was excellent (a special shout out to Tom who was faultless and made us feel truly pampered - thanks), and foodwise, the celeriac soup and salad...

Every year I come back to Laos, some years twice, and I start or end my trip with a few days in Luang Prabang and to me that is synonymous with a stay in The Apsara Hotel. With my friend I stay in one of the superior upstairs rooms, when I am alone, a standard rooms fits my not so...

This is a clean, comfortable boutique hotel with old world character in a good location. It is near the main shopping street and nearby restaurants. The night market is a 10 minute walk away. More distant locations are only a tuk tuk drive away. We stayed in a Deluxe River View room on the first floor which was quite large...

From the very moment we arrived at The Apsara we were shown just a lovely friendly experience. We were upgraded to an upstairs deluxe room, which was full of character and style. It had a large 4 poster bed with one of those comfortable old fashioned mattresses, a balcony overlooking relaxed seating under beautiful trees overlooking the river. The bathroom...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The first and still one of the most beautiful boutique hotels in Luang Prabang, the Apsara was originally a rice warehouse situated on the banks of the Nam Khan [The quieter side of town]. The Apsara is also right in the heart of the heritage village, making it the perfect place to stay. From the comfort of its large, airy bedrooms, rated by the Washington Post as "an inch beyond decadence", it's easy to explore temples and the lanes of Luang Prabang. After which you can relax on the river terrace and enjoy the spectacular views and a refreshing Beer Laos. But that's not all, our restaurant is well known for having one of the most interesting menus in town as well as a superb wine list and the driest martinis in Laos. As Hip Hotels said "Both the restaurant and bar reflect a refined sense of taste" and who are we to argue with that. ... more   less
