We were based at the Apsara for a week and cannot speak highly enough of the hotel and it's staff. The hotel is on a quiet street overlooking the Nam Kham river, and is a very short walk in to town and to the main attractions. More importantly, the staff were fantastic - welcoming, helpful and always on hand. We...

I came up to Luang Prabang just to join a charity run being held there and was blown away by the charm of the town and by the gorgeous Apsara Hotel and its staff. All that and a fabulous location really only steps away from the Action (which, as you can imagine, is of the milder variety) and facing the...

The Hotel Apsara is a lovely hotel with friendly and helpful staff located opposite the Nam Khan (Khan River) a couple of minutes’ walk from the centre of Luang Prabang’s old town. A friend and I stayed here for 5 nights in early August and were made to feel completely at home by the wonderful staff of both the hotel...

A lovely peaceful hotel a short walk from the centre of town. We loved the fact that we could walk everywhere but that the hotel was on a quieter street. Our room, in the main building overlooking the river, was huge and beautifully decorated. Fantastic shower and really tasty breakfast. The staff were lovely and friendly. A really enjoyable stay.

I stayed here with family in the upstairs rooms. I loved this hotel - the bed was comfy and the bedding high quality, the shower was FANTASTIC and I never had a cold one! The room was clean and spacious and I enjoyed the little balcony. Location wise, it is excellent and is minutes form the main street, yet it...

The Apsara was the perfect choice for our first visit to Luang Prabang. The central location meant we could easily explore the town on foot but the location along the riverfront meant it was still relaxing and peaceful at the hotel. We stayed in an upstairs room and everything from the gorgeous decor to special touches (like chilled beer glasses...

Did not look anywhere else for our return to Luang Prabang as our first experience was memborable for the excellent level of service from the staff and the comfy large rooms. This trip our small group booked three standard rooms that are a little apart from the main building which houses the reception area, bar and restaurant. We enjoyed having...

I stayed here for several nights. The rooms were quiet, clean and well appointed. The location is very central and within walking distance of many sights. Being right across from the river makes it a good location for relaxing with a drink, people watching or hopping on a boat for a tour. The staff here were absolutely wonderful. Polite, cheery...

It was a great start to the stay, they were so welcoming when they picked me up from the airport and thanked me for visiting their city. They went through the map and local attractions, which was so helpful as well. The room was quite large and the decor was very charming in a traditional sense. It was so clean,...

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
