Manoluck offers its guests comfort, privacy, and a great jump-off point to exploring Luang Prabang. Temples, museums, and galleries are 10 minutes away via tuktuk or 25 minutes if you decide to go on foot.
While distance from the town center may be bothersome for a few, the Manoluck's location is recommended for guests who like being at a slight remove from the town hurly-burly.
Their very helpful staff is a key hotel asset; they offer advice and help facilitate visits to the nearby Kuang Si Waterfalls and Pak Ou Caves.

A charming French provincial-style hotel, The Grand Luang Prabang is surrounded by beautiful grounds with rooms that offer a great view of the Mekong River.
The Grand Luang Prabang is perfect for guests who like to surround themselves with history - the hotel was the former Xingkeo Palace, which in its day was the home of Prince Phetsarath, a Lao national hero.
Today, this former palace offers both comfort and convenience, with the town center a mere 10 minutes away. The staff are paragons of Lao hospitality, very attentive and offering help whenever they can.

For accommodations right in the middle of the action in Luang Prabang, Ramayana Boutique Hotel and Spa can’t be beat: it’s right next to a morning and night market, a short distance from outstanding restaurants, and a few steps away from museums and temples.
But don’t let all that activity stop you from appreciating the hotel’s landscaped grounds and lovely architecture - genuine Laotian design cues permeate every inch of your room, the finishes heavy with dark wood and locally-woven fabrics.

More hostel than hotel, the Villa Merry Lao III Hotel offers cozy accommodations within a central Luang Prabang location. Museums, night markets, cafes, and bars are just a few steps away when you stay at Villa Merry Lao III.
As soon as you arrive, make friends with the staff and ask for tips and ideas to make your stay memorable. They’re also very helpful when you need to organize and book flights or transfers.
The central location carries one downside: the street's noise and music gets into the rooms at night. Don't stay here if you're a light sleeper; otherwise, you'll enjoy the ready access to the drinks and socializing just outside the hotel!Continue to 5 of 5 below.
