I cannot say enough good things about our experience at Mekong Riverview Hotel and our vacation to Luang Prabang. I chose this hotel based off of other Trip Advisor reviewers, and was not disappointed at all. The location is at the tip of the peninsula which provided for a very quiet and serene environment. A walk into the main part... More

We had a Junior suite river view back in March and only just got around to writing a review. Friendly efficient staff and room was excellent. Some issues with internet but these were sorted eventually. Beautiful views of the rivers and the separate restaurant a few yards down the road probably has the best view in town. We were there...

Location: There is no better Hotel in Luang Prabang when it comes to its location. At the tip of the peninsula from the old town (Unesco world heritage site) just where the Mekong and the Nam Khan River are joining together. Beautiful views from the riverside rooms and the Viewpoint Cafe. Just walking distance from major sightseeing spots (especially temples)... More

Super hotel in a great spot with very attentive staff. Lovely breakfast overlooking the river confluence and all the old town in easy reach. Staff really helpful - even found me somewhere to get my haircut! Only downside - which applies to all hotels in the old town area - is the lack of a swimming pool. But all the... More

I have traveled a lot and stayed in hundreds of hotels, and the Mekong Riverview Hotel is one of the very best. It is very comfortable, well-appointed, and tastefully decorated, but what makes the hotel truly outstanding is the staff. Everyone I dealt with at the hotel went out of their way to be helpful, not just in response to... More

My wife and I have been to LP many times and have stayed at several different hotels and guest houses. We choose this hotel as it was rated #1 on TA and also because of its close proximity to the area where the monks receive their alms in the early morning – and in spite of the hotel being expensive...

Dear Sir, Regarding our room rate, we have two types of room as Superior and Junior Suite. You stayed in Junior Suite room and the price you paid is correct. The price for Superior room in high season is the same as summer price for Junior Suite. This should be misunderstanding of the price. All categories of our rooms and... More

Love this place. The food is amazing and nothing is too much trouble. Staff are friendly and lovely. Rooms are lovely. Beautiful big bathroom, comfy king size bed. We stayed in a suite. The building are French colonial style and there is a lively bar. Would definitely recommend and will visit again when next in Laos.

We came because we heard that this place was authentic- it is! If feel like a B&B with resort amenities! They picked up from the airport- it's complimentary- just email them in advance! The front desk staffer walked us to our room and said "You can drink anything in this fridge"! (It's True) The owner was there onsite and said... More

Pros: On tip of delta, great view from restaurant food is decent staff, service is great room is clean, updated Cons: if you have a street view, you may be looking at a line-up of tuk-tuks and private buses instead of the Mekong delta. This is my only minor complaint. Seems a lot of them line up on this street... More

We are a beautiful boutique hotel with a personal touch, located on the tip of the peninsula, at the very end of the old town, on the UNESCOs World Heritage Area. The view you have from the rooms and Café/Restaurant is the meeting of great Mekong River and Nam Khan River. The Hotel is quiet and peaceful with the beautiful former Royal temple Wat Xienthong as your neighbor. ... more   less
