My husband and I have travelled quite a bit through Asia and found this hotel to be one of our favourite of all time. The staff spoke English very well and could not do enough for us. Firstly we were upgraded. The rooms was extremely clean. Even the bed was one of those electric beds that go up and down... More

Really lovely hotel. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff was amazing and so friendly and helpful! The restaurant was good. I only had two meals there and I ordered the same thing both times so I can't speak too much about the food but I did really enjoy the soup I had. The beds are awesome! Remote controlled... More

Very nice hotel, classy, fantastic location ( at end of peninsula so some sights further away), fantastic breakfast place overlooking junction of the Mekong and main tributary in Luang Prabang. Very genteel service from the managers. Nice touches such as free pickup/dropoff service with golf cart, cakes and coffee in the office and the welcome drinks with the owner Mr.... More

Can not rate The Mekong View highly enough. The room was amazing. We had a balcony with a view over the river which was just gorgeous. The staff were so friendly & hospitable. The welcome drinks with Mr Urban were a lovely touch, as were his morning visits to breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our little chats with the staff each... More

While planning a multi-city trip in East Asia - I sent emails to the Mekong Riverview and thought that I'd confirmed our reservations..but sadly had not fully confirmed everything. The staff was SO SO SO hospitable - they greeted us warmly - and not only that but upgraded our room because they had openings -- and did not at all... More

Stayed at Mekong Riverview on 3 separate occasions during our recent trip to Laos, one stay for 3 nights then two stays of one night each. The hotel is absolutely lovely, wonderful location, in my opinion it has the best view of the river in Lunag Prabang. The staff are extremely professional and nothing was too much trouble for them.... More

I stayed at the Mekong Riverview in December 2014. From beginning to end, it was a wonderful experience! We were picked up at the airport by friendly Mekong employees and driven the short distance to the hotel. The lobby was inviting and clean with tea and cake awaiting us. We had a large room with a balcony which was very... More

The Mekong Riverview is as delightful as Luang Prabang itself. It's on a point of land where the Mekong and the Nam Khan rivers meet, and we stayed in a big room with balcony overlooking the Mekong. It was charming. Staff were extremely helpful and ready to drive us on errands around the town in an electric car. You can,... More

This was our second visit to Mekong Riverview Hotel managed by Urban. The hotel is situated in a very quiet part of the city and - since the central part of Luang Prabang is a Unisco Heritage City- the buildings are intraditional Lao style. We stayed on the upper floor in a suite in the new building and it was... More

We thought Luang Prabang is just another place to tick off our list (as we are completing ASEAN countries). But when we were graciously escorted to Mekong Riverview Hotel, we realized that this will be one for the books. Everything in this hotel is magical. The service is unparalleled, the room is charming and the food is simply scrumptious! They... More
