The Mekong Riverview is a beautiful hotel with care put into every detail. Despite being located on a road, this little corner of Luang Prabang is very quiet, as there's very little traffic, and what does pass is often electric. Every room has a verandah, river view and wi-fi, to help wind down after a day exploring the old town.... More

Having never been to Laos before, I had no idea what to expect, but I found Luang Prabang to be a lovely, sleepy, relaxing little town but still with plenty going on. The Mekong Riverview was the perfect base; right by the Mekong, and a ten minute stroll to the centre. It's got a lovely Colonial feel, with hardwood teak... More

We were collected at the airport by the hotel which was great. Not having to worry about finding a taxi, not being ripped off, and being taken to the right location. Check-in was very informative with information about the town and the main sights. The room we had fronted the road, with a seating area outside, which many of the... More

Second stay at the hotel and the service and quality remain of a high standard. Rooms and communal areas are clean and well kept. Breakfasts with a view are a great start to the day. The food in the restaurant is consistently good, although fairly limited in choice. We will definitely return.

Mekong riverview hotel is an excellent hotel with individual twin cottages with verandah and spacious rooms. The support staff is very helpful and the restaurant serves good Lao food. It also offers motorbikes for hire.

Things did not get off to a good start after there was no driver to meet me at the airport as the hotel had been promised. I had rang the night before my arrival to arrange for a pickup. The excuse I received upon checkin (after taking a taxi for which I was reimbursed) was that the regular hotel staff... More

This is a genuinely nice hotel. Staff are friendly. Rooms are spacious. The view from riverview rooms is great. It's old style colonial wood based... Wooden floor, lengthy balcony and wooden frames round relatively narrow floor to ceiling window/doors to outside. Shutters. You get the look. You get free lifts into town and free transfers.

We booked the Mekong Riverview Hotel for 5 days then went to the Plain of Jars but had to come back for a further 3 days because the hotel was so good. When we returned we were upgraded to a junior suite at no extra cost. The location of the MRH is outstanding, overlooking the confluence of the Nam Khan... More

We loved staying at the Mekong Riverview Hotel. The service was excellent. The rooms are clean with well appointed bathrooms, separate toilet and a wonderful view from the balcony over the Mekong River. The bed is very comfortable, and adjustable, so you can raise it to support your back to watch TV, or raise your feet after a long day.... More
