Ok so like a lot of Hotels in Laos this hotel is basic in terms of the bedrooms and especially the bathrooms but the lobby, outside bar etc are really good. The location is perfect you will not want to stray far from the deck and check out the amazing views during the day and especially at sunset. Thoroughly enjoyed... More

My friend and I came to stay here for a night. The room was clean and new. The view from the balcony was magnificent especially in the morning. Breakfast was included. Enjoy your meal right at the riverside. Good food, amazing scenery. Moreover, this hotel is eco friendly!

Stayed here for one night on a motorbike ride from Vientiane to Luang Prabang. Had no booking, but they had plenty of rooms. Got a room on the 4th floor, facing the Nam Song river. Great view. Word of warning, they have no lifts, all up stairs. (Hell of a hike with bike gear in 40deg temp). Opened room up,... More

Giving the stay 5 stars because of the excellent view and the friendliness of the staff. Everything was nice and clean. The buffet breakfast was ok, but when you have a view like that, it makes it taste 5 stars. Anyway, there are plenty of good, cheap places to eat in town. I felt very safe at the hotel, all... More

Incredible views right from the balcony. The hotel is very nice. I stayed while on a tour. The only downfall is there's no pool. The hotel itself is central to everything and the breakfast gives plenty of option compared to most hotels in Laos. Thank you for a great 2 day stay.

The staff are knowledgeable and have quite good English. The hotel grounds are gorgeous and well kept and the restaurant is fantastic. Rooms were nice, but just kind of ok. The views can't be beat. But, we were surprised by lizards on both of the two nights we were there and I am positive that the mattresses in the hotel... More

We stayed at the new Elephant Crossing Hotel (actually it was still being finished outside when we stayed) for one night as part of an organised tour. The hotel is excellent in every respect. The room we had was spacious with a lovely balcony and very efficient air con overlooking the river. There's an excellent pool and a super terrace... More

We stayed overnight in a comfortable room on a high floor with a spectacular view directly of the river below and mountain scenery, able to watch the passing of cattle and horses on the banks and life of local people. The garden setting is tranquil and well maintained and the dining area on the deck beside the river is a... More
