            Could not fault this hotel!”

            Amazing room, wonderful staff,great breakfast,perfect location

            This hotel is excellent value! We got 5 star service for a fraction of the price. When we arrived, we were immediately upgraded to the royal suite even though we had booked the cheapest option of a deluxe room. I think this is because being July it was rainy season and so there weren't that many tourists. (we got no rain at all though!) the royal suite was amazing, the most luxurious room we have ever, and probably ever likely to stay in! For the price we paid, and after penny pinching our way through Asia, we could not believe our luck! Huge bed, sofa, armchairs, flat screen tv, DVD player, huge bathroom, huge shower, fresh fruit, bathrobes, small swimming pool outside our room that was like our own private one as there was never anyone else in it. The staff were exceptional, helpful, friendly and courteous at all times, which was our overall impression of Laotian people anyway. Breakfast was excellent, you ordered what you wanted from a menu instead of a buffet so everything was hot and fresh. We didn't go to the restaurant for dinner but if the breakfast was anything to go by I'm sure it was great. They also picked us up and left us back to the airport for free. It was perfect location also, right on main street but set in from the street so no noise. I would definitely recommend Luang Prabang(beautiful place) and Villa Santi, especially in rainy season for extra value!

            Wedding Accomodations”

            We booked 6 rooms at the Villa Santi for our wedding that was held in Luang Prabang. Aside from our 6 rooms, we had 43 people fly over from the United States, and used the Villa Santi as our home base for the week. We enjoyed drinks on the patio and food (really good!) almost every single night. The staff were extremely accommodating, and assisted with several issues other members in our group had - not related to the Villa Santi at all (dead battery on car, left carry on bag in airport van, etc.) I look forward to our next trip to LPQ and thank everyone at Villa Santi for making our special week extra special!

            Excellent location, quiet, clean, most friendly staff and excellent food.

            The hotel Villa Santi in Luang Prabang has two different locations, one on the main road and the other across the street in a side road. I was fortunate to stay in the main hotel from where I could observe the almsgiving to the monks by the local people every morning from the balcony. The amenities in the hotel lived up to my expectations in all respects and the staff was extremely accommodating and friendly and made my stay an exceptional one. If I ever return to Luang Prabang this hotel will definitely be my hotel of choice.

            Great location, right on the main street of Luang Prabang.
            Shower system is not superb like other 5-star hotel, but the sexy four-feet bathtub makes up for it.

            If we would come to Luang Prabang again, we will definitely stay here. Although, there are several stylish guesthouses/hotels coming up on the same road, Villa Santi Hotel will still be our choice. We felt Villa Santi is a historical place with good taste of interior decoration. We stayed in one of the royal suits named `Kinnaree`, of which is lovely. Breakfast is great. Hotel staffs are so helpful and friendly. The best attraction for us is a chance to attend the monk offering at 6am. right in front of the hotel.

            We have stayed two nights at the Villa Santi. It is located in Luang Prabang Old Town and perfectly located to visit all temples there. The rooms are comfortable and the food (breakfast buffet and dining) is excellent. Service is great (clean, tuk-tuk/taxi/airport transfer) and to conclude all this good value for money. We would certainly stay there again.

            We loved staying at the Villa Santi Hotel. It's location was very handy with an easy walk to the shops and night market. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were quite spacious, and very clean and tidy. Although the pool is quite small, it was all we needed at the end of a long hot day of sight seeing just to cool down in. The buffet breakfasts were a real treat with many things to choose from. We would stay here again if we ever visited Luang Prabang again.

            The new wing”

            Location is near major sites. Staff was very helpful.
            The old wing was under renovation (where we would have preferred to stay). New wing, while comfortable, did not have televisions in the rooms. Getting around the hotel meant constantly going up and down stairs.

            The Villa Santi is one of the better hotels in Luang Prabang. The old wing is the preferred place in which to stay. It makes sense to check to see if the renovations are completed. The new wing is fine in the meantime. It is easy to walk to most of the main sites in Luang Prabang. The hotel is on the main street, but a block from the start of shops. Some of the better restaurants are only a minute or two from the hotel.

            Location. Helpful staff. Clean and comfortable rooms.

            We had booked to stay 5 nights but only stayed 2 at Villa Santi. This was because we were staying in the annexe on a side road next to the hotel, and there was a lot of building work going on opposite our room, which was very noisy! We asked if it was possible to move rooms, and we were sent to the Villa Santi Resort and Spa! Which was amazing! It was 4km outside Luang Prabang, but there was a regular , free shuttle bus daily. We had a wonderful view from our balconied room, and the grounds of the hotel were beautiful. There was a good size swimming pool with plenty of comfortable sun beds and parasols around it. So many thanks to the manager of Villa Santi for our fabulous transfer!

            Great Location a Rather Disappointing Stay”

            We were looking forward to our return to Luang Prabang and a stay at the Villa Santi which was being renovated during our last visit. A disappointing first impression as one had to walk over many broken tiles in the lobby ( as it was low season you would think Management would correct this issue.) Booked a Royal Suite the Vishnau,not a good location as on the main street and the early morning pantry was the other side of our bathroom and one was woken up every morning around 6.00am with the staff noise. The room was spacious and well appointed but not well maintained: 1) shower head broken....was fixed 2) Bathroom sink, the taps were wrongly labeled,"hot was cold and cold was hot"..not corrected 3) Toilet wax seal had failed and constant sewerage smell in the bathroom 4) A/C the hand held control ..the thermostat didn't work....no matter what you did 18 Degrees was the same as 30 Degrees...had to get up at night to switch off as too cold. Housekeeping didn't pick up on any of this.?? At breakfast every day I ordered per the menu Cornflakes and Banana...the last day they had no bananas.....I laughed, as the Town is full of bananas...in fact the shop opposite were selling them....sloppy management there I think! Stayed 4 Nights and the free WiFi didn't work, the reception staff struggled with the idea that it was working, but with a download speed of less than 1Mbps.I could not receive or send my business Emails. Resorted to going down the street to a Cafe and my friend was staying at a near hotel and I went there..they had at least 10Mbps....very annoying and an indifferent air to a solution. Of course all the staff were pleasant and charming but need better training...overall I think the Hotel needs a more pro-active and professional Management .....EG: no one came to me over the WiFi even after complaining daily. The Villa Santi has great potential in a great central location, but needs to be managed better if it is going to prosper.

            A Monk's Delight”

            Location in the heart of town.
            none

            We stayed at the Villa Santi based on a friend's recommendation and couldn't have been more satisfied. The room's were adequate, but basic. The staff was friendly and spoke English very well. The hotel is located in the middle of town and enables easy access to watching the monk's and their morning procession - one of the primary reasons for going to Luang Prabang. Breakfast was included and good. The downtown location was affiliated with a "resort" a km or so out of town and we were encouraged to use the pool and other accommodations at the resort. However, we did prefer the downtown location for access to restaurants, stores and primarily the monk's daily rituals.

            We loved this place!”

            The hotel is in a beautiful old French colonial mansion the staff were helpful and attentive. Our room was beautifully decorated.

            We had such a lovely stay! We arrived early in the morning but were checked in straight away. We were upgraded to one of the suites which are just beautiful. High ceilings, living room, full bathroom with antique style bath. The reception staff helped us out with any questions we had and were always eager to help. The hotel is in a great location. It is on the Main Street of Luang Prabang but down the quiet end. LP is very quiet at night so no worries with road noise. In the morning we had a great breakfast on the balcony watching the town wake-up. One of our favorite hotels!

            Location and character

            From check in to check out, everything was wonderful. We had reserved a junior suite, but, due to a mix up with our booking, were upgraded to a royal suite. The accommodation was a vast bed and sitting room with a large bathroom. All furnishings were superb and there was even a chandelier in the bathroom!!!! The staff were professional, smiling and helpful at all times. The plunge pool (around 5 metres long) was a fantastic shaded haven where we were able to cool off in the afternoons after walking all over Luang Prabang. The food was good - we had five breakfasts and one dinner here. Location is just about perfect. It is an easy walk to anywhere in town. Highly recommended.

            One of the best places to stay in Luang Prabang”

            Perfect location , Very efficient staff

            This hotel was a place I first stayed at in 1997, when it was one of only a few hotels in town. They have consistently upgraded to stay in the top rank of hotels in Luang Prabang. Everything from check in to check out was handled very efficiently, the room was spacious and comfortable, clean and quiet.Their location is one of the best in town, close to all the major attractions, and many nice restaurants very nearby.

            Location, Swimming pool, Nearby cafe

            Villa Santi Hotel is in the heart of the old town of Luang Prabang. Located on the main street it allows you to have access to major attraction places much easily. Staff are all professional and friendly. The swimming pool is a bit small but great to chill out after days of trekking or bicycling. Must try the French cafe just in front of the hotel. Most rooms are the other side of a small alley across. We were disappointed to see that our room was a slightly different from what we saw in Agoda when booking. However, our stay in Villa Santi Hotel was overall very good.

            Location, service, airport transfer

            I went to Lung Prabang on business trip but my mother came with me because she liked to visit many beautiful temples. Villa Santi Hotel is great choice for my purpose. I could attend the meeting without worrying about my mother. Everything is close by the hotel. She can walk to the markets, shopping, food and those beautiful temples. This trip is great! We really enjoy.

            I made my great choice as picking Villa Santi for my stay in Luang Phrabang. Very friendly staff, spacious room, quite. It is good value for any single penny that you have paid for. They have also Santi Resort and Spa which is about 20mins away by hotel's shutter bus. I have enjoyed a lot there!!! Last but not least, hotel offered us free airport transfer which was a surpire at the end of our trip.

            Staff are really friendly and helpful. Rooms are nice and clean.

            I stayed there with my sisters and my 63 year old mother. We all love the hotel. It's in a nice surrounding in the heart of Luang Prabang. Breakfast offers a large variety and the staff are helpful. The rooms are nicely decorated and clean. The only inconvenience for my mother was the flight up the stairs to the breakfast room and the bedroom. Free wifi was provided but it didn't work well from time to time.
