We spent 4 nights in the Frangipani suite and enjoyed the hotel immensely. Even the crowing rooster at odd times didn't bother us. Staff were very helpful. Sometimes there was a bit of a language barrier but everyone tried to understand and make sure we were happy. The terrace across the road serves a very nice breakfast and is a...

I really wanted to love this place, and I will say that Von was great. I was disappointed with most everything else, though. The room setup is nice, but my a/c was leaking some strange yellow liquid the first day...a lot of it. Not the end of the world, but when I asked the staff to check it out they...

After reading all the positive reviews, I thought booking this place would be a no-brainer , but unfortunately it ended up being our least favorite hotel of 5. We stayed in the main building in Tamarind 4 for 4 nights, in a duplex style room for our honeymoon. Our room was okay, definitely quirky and a bit worn, but had...

We didn't stay at this hotel, we came here on our first night in Laos to watch the sunset and we weren't disappointed. The bar overlooks the Mekong River which is a perfect spot to sit, have a drink and watch the world go by. We also had lunch here the following day which was delicious.

We stayed here for five nights and found it a perfect choice. The Belle Rive is in a great location on the peninsula, the view from the Terrace and our room over the Mekong was delightful.

I was here for a few nights in August, the place was quite honestly perfect (and believe me, I don't write that ever). First the location: Luang Prabang is a small town and the best parts are on the peninsula in between the rivers. This hotel is in a nice spot on the Mekong river about mid-way down the island....

We arrived via the Luang Say river cruise from Thailand to Luang Prabang which was amazing staying at a luxury lodge overnight.
