Accommodation - Luang Phrabang - Sala Prabang

Housed in an imposing riverfront house that has been impeccably restored, the Sala Prabang has two newer wings built in complimentary style. The tones are earthy, the stone almost Cotswold, and it's a charming place to stay.

The location is spot on, overlooking the Mekong river and just a short stroll from the heart of the action on Th Sakkarin. The rooms come with both fan and air-con, which is quite a rarity in Laos. This allows you to switch off the air-con and cool yourself with the fan if that's your preference. Facilities include a hot water bathtub in most rooms, a hairdryer, IDD phone and unlimited tea and coffee. No TV though. Upstairs rooms include a king-size bed for couples and the Mekong views up here are some of the best in town. Rates include breakfast and taxes and the staff are very friendly and efficient.
