Upside: As it located on a hill the hotel offers great views of Luang Prabang city and Mount Phou Si. The hotel also has an infinity pool that offers a magnificent view.

Downside: There are a lot of stairs on the property and elderly and generally unfit people might find that hard.

Insider Tip: Ask for a room higher up on the property as they will have the best views. It also takes you further away from the pool as all the rooms with a view overlook the pool.
