    Large rooms in classic old hotel”
    The Apsara is a good old hotel, comfortable, and well-located in the center of town overlooking the Nam Khan River. The bedroom and bathroom are both spacious. Breakfast was fine. Staff were fine. The restaurant maybe its best feature, but the restaurant is expensive. Let’s cation and the view over the river are the next best features. Eating breakfast on the veranda was a pleasant way to start the day.

    This is a very nice and modern boutique hotel, definitely value for money. I arrived early and managed to check in around 10am plus was given a complimentary breakfast. The staff, headed by Mr. Phonepasith is extremely friendly and very helpful to attend to all your travelling needs e.g. how much would tuk2 cost going to the city, etc. After staying for one night, I was upgraded to a junior suite, so that was very pleasant. The slightly setback is the hotel is about 2km to the city centre, Riverside but on a good note, it's quiet and peaceful.

    Simply gorgeous property on the banks of the Nam Khan River. Friendly staff, rooms that were a throwback to Indochina in the forties. The hotel itself is a converted rice storage warehouse. Lovely little bar area where one would almost expect Graham Greene to be propped up writing, whilst enjoying a cool drink. Save yourself time and trouble if going to Luang Prabang and just book yourself a room here and let the ambience do the rest. Charming in the extreme.

    A Wonderful Colonial Style Hotel in Luang Prabang”
    I loved my stay at the Apsara. I stayed in one of the upstairs rooms with balcony that overlooked the river on the opposite side of the road. The room was delightful and furnished in keeping with the building. There was also a nice balcony where you could sit and watch the world go by. Luang Prabang is compact and easy to get around. Apsara is well situated for the main shopping street, the market and the monks early morning alms walk. Breakfast was excellent with freshly squeezed orange juice, fresh fruit, main course of egg dish or cereal and followed by baguette and coffee or tea. I also found the staff to be friendly and helpful. If I return to Luang Prabang I will certainly stay at the Apsara again

    Great location, good service and funny staff, but still overpriced”
    Love both the location and the funny and very helpful staff! Gone for 15 minute breakfast? You'll still probably come back to a ready made up room. Forgot to lock that finicky outer door lock? Someone else remembered. Put your shoes outside during the night to keep that traveller smell away? The next morning you'll find that someone covered even your sad flipflops with pillows. The rooms are huge and the style is very nice, but in some cases form trumps function - like the fantastic looking showerhead that still makes it close to impossible to wash your feet without getting half your body wet. The breakfast isn't anything to write home about, but the restaurant is well above average. There were quite a few misunderstandings though, and we soon learned to keep the language short and simple when expressing our wishes.

    Excellent Location and Service”
    The hotel is very conveniently located just a few short steps from the main street in the historic area of town and about five minutes walk to the Night Market, but is generally quiet at night--the area along the Nam Khan River tends to have less pedestrian and vehicle traffic at night than the main street or the road along the Mekong side. Rooms were atmospheric but very comfortable, breakfasts excellent, and staff very helpful. The only downside is that the downstairs rooms don't have windows--the only way to let in natural light is to open the doors out to the street. They felt a bit claustrophobic--I think it's worth paying a bit more for an upstairs room where one has windows and access to a shared balcony.

    Almost perfect”
    A lovely room, good bed, sheets, towels, lights, electrical outlets. Tastefully decorated, nice view of trees and Nam Khan River, quiet room On arrival my perceived problem with air con and wifi was quickly fixed. I used a bike everyday, no charge. Didn't like the rain shower but water pressure and temperature was good. My one concern was the door lock. It was the kind that cam be opened with a credit card and there was no second lock on the inside. But the security was good. Breakfast, included, varied from eastern soup and congee to western omlette and bacon. It always included fruit, fresh juice, toasted baguette, jam and coffee or tea. NOt sure why the baguette was toasted, it seemed to get more solid the longer it sat. All in all a good choice.

    Location, style, staff
    The hotel is located just 1 street behind the main road so great location, whilst being quiet. We booked standard rooms, with river view which had a little balcony facing the river - they were spacious and clean. The only downside was the extremely creaky floorboard and the consequent noise from adjacent rooms. The floorboard was also extremely well polished which made it very slippery and caused my partner to slip and fall, so beware! Breakfast was also a little challenging with a few attempts needed to get our orders right. Overall a good stay in a nice little hotel - the staff was friendly and helpful

    We originally booked two nights and extended it four more. The room was very nice, clean and had one of the most comfortable beds I've slept on in a hotel in a long time. The food was excellent, the staff was friendly and very helpful. The location is really good for exploring the town and you are between two of the best cooking schools/restaurants in the city, that is if you want to eat anywhere else. For a good laugh, read the hotel information book. It was written with an excellent sense of humor.

    The Apsara is a beautifully renovated hotel on the riverside of Luang Prabhang. The rooms are very large with a huge four poster bed and a sofa. The breakfast is very good and has good choice of food. It is a short walk into town and the major attractions of Luang Phrabhang. The hotel has bicycles for hire to tour around the town easily. The staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful. A good choice when staying in Laos.

    Really liked the Apsara hotel - the decor is beautifully and stylishly done. It felt like a very chic hotel at an affordable price. The bedrooms aren't enormous but they all have a balcony or terrace overlooking the river, which compensates. bathrooms are very nicely done. Breakfast was very good and the staff are very professional and helpful. I would stay again!
