If you want a huge five star mega-hotel, then go elsewhere. If you want a beautiful boutique hotel (only 13 units) then the BelleRive is your place. First--absolutely the best location--you are right on the Mekong River and just a few minutes from the center of Luang Prabang and the Night Market, the Royal Palace and many of the Temples....

The hotel is located right in the middle of everything,very convenience to go around town. We enjoyed good quality of breakfast beside Kong river. The hotel also provided us free ride on the boat during sunset. Overall, good place to stay ,although the quality of the mattress and sheets could be improved.

Stayed at the BelleRive for three nights and really enjoyed it. The hotel is very charming and in a perfect location in beautiful Luang Prabang, right on the Mekong river and just blocks from the center of town. We stayed in a lovely two-level maisonette room with a balcony that was very charming, well equipped, and while not overly spacious...

Great stay! Very comfortable room with beautiful views of the Mekong. Absolutely delicious breakfast. Loved the sunset cruise. What really made the stay, however, was the excellent service. Everyone from the waiters to the bartenders to the manager, Vone, were super friendly, prompt, helpful and accommodating, a rare find in Lao service!

We were pleasantly surprised by the free soft drinks and water. The all day breakfast was your choice of a vast menu, the only downside...

I had the greatest time in Luang Prabang, thanks to The Belle Rive! The room was spacious, bed was comfy and the whole hotel will give you a nice homie-feeling right from the check-in. The extensive choice at breakfast also won me: fresh pressed juices, French croissants (made in LP!) and tasty lao dishes that you must try! Probably the...

Spent several lovely days here on a repeat visit to Luang Prabang. The location on the Mekong with breakfast overlooking the river is a very special treat provided by the Belle Rive. Damian, the manager, was helpful with any and all questions. His employees, including Vone (who speaks excellent English), are also very considerate and helpful. Food was good, rooms...

The location, service, friendliness of the staff is very good, rooms are nicely done, everything is in perfect conditions however it is overpriced like all hotels in Luang Prabang. The breakfast is excellent on a terrace opposite the hotel on the Mekong River. TV on demand.
