Everything about the Aspara Rive Droitte is just right. Mr Ai and Mr Hann (the management team) and Mr Ivan (the owner) went out of their way to make our stay wonderful and all the other staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect, with the hotel's dedicated Aspara Queen taking 60 seconds to cross the Nam Khan...

I've stayed at a lot of hotels, and have never experienced service at the level of what I experienced at the Apsara River Droit. Mr. Han and the rest of the staff will go above and beyond - and even further - to ensure that you have an amazing time in Luang Prabang. I stayed at the hotel from 28...

Stayed here from 16/4 to 19/4. Fabulous hotel and just really lovely hotel staff who are eager to help and please! Had room no 3 which was big, clean and more than adequate for my needs. There is no television in the room which suited me fine because I went to Luang Prabang to get away from the hustle and...

Dear Chris, Thank-you very much for your positive feedback. We are glad you enjoyed the tranquility of the hotel and our late breakfasts. I agree the location doesn't suit everyone but being on this side of the river, we were allowed to have a pool whereas in the middle of town pools are forbidden. We look forward to welcoming you...

I can't recommend this place more highly. A boat ride across the Nam Khan river from the Old Town, it is a haven of peace (no kids allowed!). No TV in the rooms. Excellent insect management. Delicious fruit and cooked breakfast individually prepared. Free airport transfers. Free bikes. Very helpful and friendly staff. Spotlessly clean. The hotel is a little...

We stayed here for 5 days. It was perfect for us. Just across the river and a short boat ride, cycle or walk from the main town. The hotel was busy, but still very peaceful and relaxing. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and had everything we needed. We loved it and would definitely...

Thank-you very much for your appreciative comments about your stay with us earlier this year. As we are a small establishment we can often offer these small services such as keeping your room later than our published check out time.

I loved my recent stay in this hotel. The staff are extremely friendly and courteous and nothing was too much trouble - when the river boat had a temporary problem with the motor, a taxi was found for me very promptly and at the hotel's expense. My room had a wonderful balcony and view over the garden; room facilities all...

This lovely nine room boutique hotel is across the river from the main part of town, but the hotel has a 24 hours boat transfer service for the one minute trip across. There is also a bamboo bridge a bit further up the river, but only in the dry season. Either way there are several dozen steps at either end...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Glamorous rooms, all with their own veranda or terrace. Connected to the town centre by our own boat, the Apsarian Queen, it’s easy to get right into the heart of town. You can spend the morning going to the temples, shopping or just exploring the side lanes and an afternoon in luxurious idleness by the pool. We also have bicycles and our own tuk-tuk available for guests' use. ... more   less
