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

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

This hotel is tucked away at the far end of the old town with idyllic views of the Mekong river. We really appreciated the calm and quiet. The night market/restaurants/Phousi hill are all just a couple of minutes away on a bike (free rental from the hotel) though so it's ideally placed to take advantage of everything LP has to... More

I really enjoyed my trip to Luang Prabang and staying at the Mekong Riverview Hotel was one reason why. The hotel location itself is ideal overlooking the Mekong River. The large rooms have a long balcony that allow you to sit outside and watch life go by. The hotel room is very nice, with great beds, free water, tea, and... More

I loved location of hotel. It is nearby Mekong River so I had chance to see this giant river and enjoyed pure air of river area. That why we chose Superior Mekong river view to look all about Luang Phrabang as well as the river. The room is ok with nice view, opened windows and bathroom with separated toilet.

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
