You need to know that the hotel isn't a riverfront property but rather is actually across the road from the Mekong. What the main photo shows is actually the outdoor restaurant which is on the riverfront. The hotel's location is great as you're always close to the magical Mekong and there are good views from the hotel too. The night...

Beautiful spot. Lovely river terrace for breakfast. Rooms are great - large with good air conditioning. Included sunset cruise was good. Asked for towels for our waterfall trip and got a great carrier with 4 beach towels. Unlike an earlier comment I thought the breakfasts were great. So much choice - and you can have as much as you want...

What a wonderful place to stay, ideally located on the bank of the Mekong river in Luang Prabang with its restaurant and breakfast across the road literally on the bank with awesome views of the river and the many boats that navigate it. We had a suite which was immaculate and spacious, also with views of the river. On our...

My husband and I stayed here for three nights while in Luang Prabang. It turned out to be the perfect location for our first LP visit. The hotel is located at the Peninsula right on the river where everything is happening, you can walk or take the bike everywhere from here. I cannot say enough good things about the staff...

This hotel has a lot of charm with lovely rooms and very helpful friendly staff. We enjoyed the breakfast, which was a la carte versus a standard hotel breakfast buffet and the restaurant is situated right on the river, so offers a lovely view. They offer a nice complimentary boat cruise and drink every evening. We used the free bikes...

The BelleRive Hotel is an amazing Hotel. Started with the perfect location by the Mekong, and within easy walking distance to all that Luang Prabang has to offer. Breakfast, cooked by order with very good quality, is served on the terrace with spectacular view over the Mekong. At this point I need to mention that the big difference from the...

What to say about this hotel...... We stayed her for 5 nights April/May. We stayed in a balcony suite. Negatives: Our airconditioner was really noisy and disrupted our sleep. We had someone look at it but it still remained noisy. Room no. 1 has a window to the side of the bed which lets in a lot of light early...

Everything Luang Prabang reminds me of a southeast Asian Charleston, and this cute boutique hotel was no exception. It faces the Mekong and offers lovely sunset views. Our reservation even included a complimentary 1-hour sunset cruise with adult libations! The restaurant served good food, but I think the wait staff needs a morale boost. Maybe it was the heat, but...

As my dad was joining me on this trip to Luang Prabang, I spent a little more for a hotel, as opposed to a guesthouse. Despite the flight landing 20 mins late, the arranged driver was waiting patiently outside the arrival gate. He provided us with a free map that came in handy to get around LP. At the Belle...

This is a boutique hotel. Very few rooms but charming and on a great location overlooking the Mekong river. Breakfast is served on a terrace across the road from the hotel but with an ample view of the Mekong River in a very tranquil and pretty setting. An experience by itself.
