- Relaxing poolside within the peaceful hotel grounds

Small enough to explore on foot, the charming UNESCO World Heritage-listed town of Luang Prabang is the perfect destination for a long weekend or as part of an Asian adventure. The luxurious Angsana Maison Souvannaphoum is fittingly petite itself – home to just 24 tastefully appointed rooms.
The former residence of a prince and four-time Prime Minister of Laos, this illustrious address exudes historic charm. Listed among the Top 10 Small Hotels in Laos on TripAdvisor, the Angsana features a casual-chic restaurant serving Laotian and Indo-Chinese cuisine, a heavenly spa and beautiful outdoor pool deck.
Walk to the laid-back bars and restaurants on the Mekong riverside and check off Luang Prabang’s many glinting golden wats as you explore. Central though the hotel may be; it’s an idyllic tropical sanctuary to return to after a day absorbing all this beguiling one-time royal capital has to offer.
How to Get There
This small hotel is charming and staff provide friendly service , very keen to help.
Delightful breakfast and dining room which outlooks to the pool.
Rooms are a bit small and don't have all the built ins as modern hotels.
Great location, walk to markets, restaurants, alms ceremony. Would stay there again.
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights . The hotel had very nice French style character, needing slight updating but was all forgotten because of the charm and attention to detail . Our room was well equipped with lots of coffee tea insect repellents and even insense !! The staff couldn't have been anymore attentive and caring. As soon as you went in the restaurant they were so accommodating! Honest too as we left our safe open a whole day when we went on a trip and nothing was taken ! Highly recommend this hotel . Can't sing their praises enough
First things first: service quality in Laos is bad. Before going check out the "worksomeness" and "friendlieness" of Laos in general.
With that being said this hotel tries very hard to give you a better expierience then whats to be consideres average in Laos.
Reception was very friendly and personal - homemade drinks and tapioca snacks and traditional Lao greeting/blessing.
Rooms are quite good but a bit worn out. Probably the hotel will go through some renovation soon. Everything in our room was very clean but we had a lovely room gecko...we didnt bother as it ate some annoying mosquitos.
At peak hours (morning/evening) we experienced troubles with the hot water in the shower after 5min.
The pool seams to be clean and there is water circulation, though the entire work has been done very poor and almost all tiles are wobbly and many do have very dangerous sharp edges...so be very careful with kids! This needs to be fixed ASAP!
In general the staff could be far more effective and diligent...but remember my first sentence!
Free bikes are available for guests.
Breakfast is far below what we expected. Not to much to choose from and food safety is below average. Meats and cheese not refridgerated and staff touches many items with bare hands! Due to the small capacity of the hotel I would prefere a la carte breakfast instead of the sensitive buffet option.
Many early reports of the hotel seem not to be applicabel anymore, as there was no director/supervision/management present to direct the staff.
A good hotel for Laos but in a global scale not the standard you might expect from Banyan Tree/Angsana.
In the neighboring countries of Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia your get way better value for your money with far better sights and service as well.
We stayed for four nights in adjoining rooms with our three children under 10.The hotel is a perfect match for the town. Unpretentious, friendly and comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble and lots of little extras like bikes, games and inflatables were appreciated. A few people told us this is the best hotel in area and I believe it.
We spent 2 nights here after 5 in a much cheaper hotel and really enjoyed our stay. It’s a cut above, beautifully decorated with staff to match. Someone even comes in to your room to light scented oils before you arrive back in the evening which is a nice touch. The beds were super comfy and the free bicycles came in very handy.
