Recent guest reviews

Fabulous hotel tucked away from the bustling noise of city center. So pleased I stayed here, it was excellent. The staff were friendly and polite, from the room maid to the reception staff to the waiters and waitress, all have ready smiles and very happy to help. Our room was comfortable and with a nice view of the mountains. But the best part was the pool – stunningly fantastic. We had fun doing selfies! We will definitely recommend this hotel.

Unfortunately we booked to be picked up at the airport and although we emailed and phoned to confirm p, somehow the message didn't get through. This can be a problem as buying the kip currency outside Laos is very difficult and several peoples cards would not work in the ATM's which left people in difficultty trying to get to their accommodation. It's a good suggestion to agree to share taxis with others to reduce the cost as many did which helped out those with only a few dollars of usable currency. There are many ATM's in the town/city Service though and I am sure everyone found one which worked for their card in the end. Our hotel were hugely apologetic and upgraded our room and gave us a free dinner too so we were happy in the end. The English language skills of the staff are at different levels but all of them eager to help and if you have any problems at all then ask for Oscar the hotel manager and he will sort it out. Nothing is too much trouble and he can work miracles. Breakfast has a good selection of food and drinks and you can eat in or outside. The hotel is 4 km outside town but the hotel runs a shuttle service throughout the day which drops off and picks up in the centre of town. Whilst you are waiting to be collected in the town we can recommend a gin and tonic in the Azerai hotel opposite the pick up place for £4 each approximately and some really nice nibbles to go with it . The hotel can order you a tuktuk if the shuttle hours don't suit but it will be 150,000 kip (approx £15) but if you walk out of the hotel onto the road and start walking very soon you will find one stopping and taking you for 30,000 kip or less. If you are booking to go to the Kuangsu waterfall don't let them charge you extra to pick you up from the hotel as they have to drive past it to get there from the town. The waterfall and all its pools further down to play in are geeat fun and photo opportunities. There are toilets and a bar/ shop inside and lots more outside the ticket office. There is also a bear sanctuary there for free which is interesting. The town has a night market every night on the Main Street starting at the drop off point more or less until the end of the temple selling various locally made things. Do make it through to the end of it as that's where there are better restaurants and ticket offices for your trips along eith more temples and the museum. There is a small wine bar/shop in the town which does happy hour all night it seems called Bar a vin which has reasonable wine and a small selection of cocktails for approx £2 each. Right at the bottom of the Main Street but worth the walk is the Viewpoint cafe. Clean reasonably priced and in a great setting day or night it's a great place to sit and watch the world go by on the rivers as it overlooks the actual confluence or the Mekong and the Nam Kan, they also provide a lift back into town for free when you have finished. It's a much quieter and generally cleaner and slightly more expensive end of town but very pleasant. There are lots of bars and restaurants on the main streets and the streets on either side of the peninsula overlooking each river for different budgets. There are plenty of bottles of water in the room and refreshed every day and it's free in the restaurant too. The food in the restaurant is good and good service although more expensive than in the town. Unfortunately there were some renovations going on around the pool which were sometimes noisy and a little intrusive which we had known if in advance but we were our most if the day anyway. The pool area is great and towels and mattresses freely available and mostly very quiet and it feels like your own. A bell is there to ring if you want any snacks or drinks or anything else. The gym was being relocated and so I can't comment on that other than we were disappointed as we did want to use it. Luang Prabang is a fairly quiet sleepy place overall but as charming as it's people.

The staying in the Le Palais Juliana was very pleasant and enjoyable for us. We liked the location very much because it's not so far from downtown. The service people everywhere were very nice and polite. We stayed 3 nights at the villa and we liked it very much. If you are looking for quiet, relaxing & extremely charming with the beautiful nature, then this is the place you should visit.

We stayed here for a week with our 3 children (11, 9 and 8). They transferred us to 2 adjacent rooms to make it easier for us, with no fuss. The restaurant staff were happy to adapt meals to suit our dietary needs (vegan and gluten-free) and the red, green and yellow curries were delicious. The kids loved splashing about in the pool, and it was easy enough to arrange transportation into Luang Prabang when we wanted. Would definitely stay here again should we return to LP, and would recommend to others 👍

This hotel is outstanding. The surroundings, pool, grounds, restaurant are all great. Breakfast buffet is excellent and extensive. The management and staff were incredibly helpful when I had a bum stomach on the second day. The Hotel Manager offered to send hot tea with ginger which helped alleviate the discomfort. He would check on me every time he sees me in the lobby if I were doing okay. Asian hospitality at its finest! Should I return to Luang Prabang, I will be staying here.

and very comfortableDuring our recent tour of Laos/Vietnam/Cambodia staying at 4 - 5 star hotels, Palais Juliana was a stand-out experience for us. The room was large, well appointed and very comfortable, offering all the amenities of much larger luxury hotels. The polite staff were very accommodating of our need, the restaurant menu offered deliciously prepared meals, and their swimming pool was huge and beautiful. We were impressed by how the manager was on hand to assist the staff. Thumbs up.

located away from the town although they provide a shuttle. Lack of dining options is a handicap especially since it is away from town. Breakfast is good. Grounds, pool are very good. Rooms are spacious but plumbing was erratic. They use heavy ceramic containers for soap, shampoo, prone to fall down and break (mine did and they charged me for it!!) Had to spend three nights due to tour schedule and flight timings. Bar service good but evenings drag!

During our visit to Luang Prabang Laos we stayed at the Le Palais Luliana. Nice rooms Courteous staff. The pool was very nice and the grounds were beautiful. The rooms had balconies with chairs and tables.

Le Palais Juliana Hotel in Luang Prabang was a sprawling hotel with a pool. They had a very nice dining room for breakfast and dinner as well as a lobby area with a bar. Had a massage in my room here on the bed. I like a table better but the massage was very nice. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Shower is separate from the tub. Initally there was hot water in the tub and not in the shower. They came and fixed it. Very accommodating staff, helpful and friendly. Well worth the stay. You need to take a tuk-tuk into town which costs a few dollars each way. There are markets at night, food and drinks in town. Wi-fi is in Lobby.

I will like to share my experience of my stay at Le Palais Juliana. Me and my friends Valerie and Justin we spend six days at Luang Prabang lovely town full of cafes and art galleries excellent food .Our stay at Juliana was very enjoyable not far from town ( so all those people who complain about that is was to far is not if you don't have six dollars to take a taxi you have no business stay there especially when you are travelling with two or three in your group when you slit the cost) my favorite person at the front desk his name is Chan he was amazing taking care of us at all times gave us great recommendations where to eat where to go for drinks the guy knows is his stuff I can see in the near future he can be the GM of that hotel I can describe his excellent performance as a concierge and me working in a five star hotel Nikko San Francisco I saw and value his ability to run that hotel overall I give a four star. There is a lot of improvement been made and yes I highly recommend this property away from all close to the town clean the only thing I found that they have to work on the WI-FI need improvement I will like to extend my gratitude to Chan for making my stay and friends amazing. Thank you
