Great location, decent service, bikes to go around, does not like the boat people to ask everyday about the boat thing cause not interested, should have more gimmick to add value to differentiate, nice room (only problem with electricity + aircon leaking), but overall is pretty good value....

I needed a break from work and all, and always wanted to visit Luang Prabang. I stayed 3 nights in oct 2015 and still have vivid memories of my stay. Breakfast was ala-carte, along/on the beautiful mekong river. Staff recommended Laab Gai for dinner and it was really good! 5-10 minutes walk to the night market. No TV in the... More

We stayed at the BelleRive for 4 nights during the wet season. We had an amazing time and I think a lot of it had to do with the hotel and the staff.

We stayed 3 nights at the Belle Rive for our first visit to Luang Prabang, and I have no second thoughts staying there the next time I visit. Staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was good, they provide free bicycles, and the complimentary sunset cruise was the icing on the cake. The only reason I do not rate it 5/5... More

The BelleRive was the perfect hotel for our recent long weekend in Luang Prabang. The room was comfortable and stylish. The staff were friendly and efficient and very accommodating with our request for a late checkout. The location was great, by the river and just a 5 minute stroll into the centre of the old town. We look forward to... More

I would lave to give this place 5 stars and the rooms and the location definitely deserve it. However some in the staff don't really make that mark. The reservation through their website was a bit chaotic. Instead of a confirmation I received several automatic cancellation messages but at the end everything worked out fine. The location facing the Mekong... More

Staying at the Belle Rive is a joy.. it's classy but unpretentious, rather more like staying in a wealthy friend's house than a hotel. I won't reiterate the informative recent reviews you can read before mine, but would add that being able to get up and have breakfast (anything you want really... pancakes, bacon & egg, croissant...a la carte) on...

Lovely hotel situated right across the street from the Mekong river, in short walking distance to the center of town. Luang Prabang is peaceful, charming, captivating...a true treasure and the BelleRive provides a lovely atmosphere with calm and charm. We were delighted with our stay...4 days wasn't enough!
