New Daraphet Villa Apr 12, 2014
I booked this place just to have somewhere to tell the immigration we would be staying - just in case they actually ask for which I somehow doubt in Laos but you never know. The location of the hotel is pretty good it is located in a small street between the two main streets in Luang Prabang. Down at the one end is the giant Mekong River and on the other side is the street leading down to the royal palace of the city and the night market.
The hotel receptionist speaks decent English and we get checked in without too much trouble. The construction of the hotel is a bit strange so we have to go up over a small stair and then down to the other side to get into a small garden where our room is located in a quiet room next to the garden. The garden has got a couple of tables so you can sit outside and enjoy the garden if you like and since the tables most of the times is in the shade it isn’t too hot to sit there. There is a building in the middle of the building which they claim is sort of a spa area. There is a woman in there offering to do massage for the guest - and there rarely seems to be a queue for the service - at least we didn’t see anybody using the service during our stay at the hotel.
The room is located up on the first floor with a couple of balconies - though none of them are of much use since they are pretty small and one is getting too hot to actually be pleasant.
The room got a bed, air-condition and a couple of chairs at the end of the room. The room got a bathroom attached with a shower which has got only cold water - apparently the hotel should have hot water but something is not working properly with the hotels water system.
The reception of the New Daraphet Villa is open towards the small street since the climate around here invite to that kind of building design. Next to the reception is the breakfast area which is likewise conveniently located out doors with next to the small street. The breakfast is a buffet style where you can get an omelet made by the staff if you like it. Unfortunately the fruit selection is a bit limited for a hotel located in a tropical area with so many delicious fruits growing everywhere.
The receptionist takes part of the water fighting with the people working at the hotel on the opposite side of the street when they are not busy. They enjoy getting soaked and throwing water in surprise attacks - which doesn’t seem to come as too much of a surprise for anyone. Fortunately it appears they are not allowed to throw water at current, future or past guest so we never got a last splash of water when we went in or out of the reception to get to our room.
