Her English and spanish were remarkable. Breakfast was served across the street by the river. Delicious fresh fruit including papaya, mangos and home made jams. I like the French arquitecture. The bed features...

Firstly I must say that this hotel is a little misleading. Maybe I did not look carefully at photos but I thought that we would have a terrace from our room overlooking river. But the terrace is actually attached to the restaurant across the road. We didn't have a river as such but the room was very nice. The hotel...

I chose this hotel based on other travelers reviews, and I was not disappointed. I stayed for 3 nights.

BelleRive was the perfect icing to a lovely holiday. Great location. Lovely staff - Vone, David and everybody else. Loved just lazing on the terrace restaurant. The have-all-you-want anytime of the day breakfast was fantastic. The manager Damien was really helpful. Had some lovely chats with him.

Belle Rive was recommended to us by friends who visited Luan Prabang and regretted that they did not stay there. The suites were charming and so comfortable.

Perfection. Delightful in every way, and surprises too. Facilities would have been a full five too, if there were a pool of some kind, but the property is three old villas turned into 5 suites and 8 rooms, so there's no place for one. The rooms are romantic and spacious and quite beautiful in a wonderful Asian/colonial way. Everything is...
