There should have been a restaurant

The room wa snot bad as soon as the hot water and WIFI was working
The breakfast was not very much to write home about. I think it was the same guy making the breakfast and working in the reception. The room was OK as soon as the hot water was working (not much of a pressure) and the WIFI was working This could easily have been a wonderful hotel if they just redecorated. The bathrooms need a good make over The hotel have a history and it would be nice to stay there is they could just get some of the atmosphere back. Open the restaurant on the terrace with a real Cook. Then they could easily have charged more per night

Expensive compared to price

Good location, nice garden, nice room decoration
Hotel is an old building, very nice and well reserved. But the facilities inside should be upgraded. We booked 2 rooms, but one of them had NO hot water, so our kids had to use the cold water for bathing. The hotel staff promised that they will fix the problem but finally could not, although we stayed for 2 nights. Breakfast is so simple with eggs, bread and fruit for both days.

An excellent choice

Position, a heritage building, friendly staff
A very enjoyable stay in a heritage hotel, albeit with rather faded charm. Brilliantly positioned, large room and very friendly and helpful staff. Very good value.

Our stay was very relaxing.

Quiet location, quiet and relaxing and a beautiful building with great history.
Our stay at the Le Calao inn was great. We were the only guests in the Inn as it was low season so we received great service. The rooom was very comfortable and well appointed, great for a family. While it is located further away from the main shops, it was only a short walk to get to many of the fine cafe in Luang Prabang. I would stay here again.

This hotel is ok good location but past it's best.

Nice view, very good location.
This hotel is in need of a major overhaul. It is way over priced compared to what is available near by. Hard to recommend.

One of the best place in Louang Prabang

Confortable, quiet, clean. Small and very pleasant house idealy situated in the quiest place of the city.
It was not our first stay at Calao Inn and it is really one of the best place in Louang Prabang : 5 minutes walk fron city center and restaurants. On the river Mekong side. All the rooms with view on the Mekong ... with very nice sunset from the room terrasses. The only negative thing : no fridge in the rooms...
