Luang Prabang is a lost paradise, a place from another time, with quiet imcomparable beauty, and the BanKi Villa at the Kiridara is hands down the best place to stay. Mr. Somkeo - our private butler - and Ms. Boureako, our housekeeper, made our experience unforgettable. The rooms, the beds, the private garden, the lanai watching over the Mekong, the food, the bike rides, the peace, the elegance, all combined to make this, one of the still truly great experiences a globalized tourism can offer us.
Thank you to all, and thank you Laos for this forgotten bliss amidst peaceful beauty - and for the BanKi Villa of the Kiridara, which is absolutely supreme!

Staff very nice and friendly, but didn't offer many recommendations for places to go. That's OK though, since there were plenty of opportunities to get information. Restaurant "Tropical Idol" was excellent! Breakfast was great, but dinner is excellent. Didn't see many people eat here since it is hidden away, but it has some of the best thai/lao food I have eaten anywhere my trip. Room was good and had ample space, tv, ac all worked great. Just a short walk to all the sightseeing around Luang Prabang, night market, restaurants. Would definitely stay here again.

for the price, it's okay .. a little over-priced for me .. certainly a 3-star hotel at least .. the complementary breakfasts were scrumptuous and varied .. all local night-life accessible via tuk-tuk .. the Thai consulate is walk-able .. i'm very neat so i din't need daily cleaning services .. if you like Lao beer, it's cheaper at the local mini-mart not far from the hotel .. and .. not far from there is Sabaidee Sushi which is quite nice :) .. all in all, a very nice experience! :) ps: the internet speeds are decent compared to others :)

We were at Mercure in the 2nd week of July 2014. We arrived early so while waiting, we requested for a massage and the hotel staff arranged for it promptly. On the first day, we took a tuk tuk to the city centre, however, we decided to explore Ventiane by foot and by bicycle after one of the staff showed us how convenient it was to get to the Nam Phu (city centre) area if we went by the riverfront route as opposed to using the main thoroughfare. We had a great time exploring Ventiane. We were also very impressed with the food and the ever friendly Lao people. The Lao people may be one of the poorest people in Asia but we certainly didn't see any unhappiness on their faces.

A great hotel, helpful staff, well located in the middle of village life. Cross the bridge and you're amongst the rice paddies heading towards caves and pools. Great restaurant - make sure you try the Lao degustation.

We (couple, 50) enjoyed the stay here very, very much. Very friendly staff, super clean rooms, an amazing view on the landscape around, having breakfast within a rice field on a wooden terrace. The breakfast was tasty and we could choose between different kind of foods and fruits. It was an overall carefree experience.
Since the hotel is on the other side of the river, it was a quite place although it was only a 10 minute walk from the centre.
Only the Wifi was quite weak in the room but the reception desk informed us about that already on arrival and recommended to use the Wifi in the lobby area.

The rooms are large and clean (though a few maintenance issues in one bathroom of the 2 rooms we booked). The pool area is pleasant and it is a very central location (close to restaurants and the tubing shop) but the big selling point is the wonderful location with a great view from the balcony of our room over the river and mountains at sunset, and fantastic value for money.
