Great experience! Great and attentive staff...always smiling! We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The food was great! The breakfast and the food we had was really tasty and served in a wonderful terrace over the Mekong (I still fell that papaya salad in my mouth -and my tongue!-Ahahah). It's been a true pleasure our breakfast or "aperitivo" here! The room are big (we had the one without balcony) but the view is amazing. The hotel is really clean and the room has got the "older time", colonialist look that perfectly matches with the city. The position is great, quiet but central: the morning monk procession is right behind the hotel (we tried different spot, and this seems to be the most authentic and non- touristic place). With a short walk you can reach everything (wat xieng thong, night market) and you can also use the free bike (great way to see luang prabang!). Great plus: Free fresh water at the reception!!! And they also can help you to rent a scooter (10 $ per day is a good price!). We also used they laundry service! Super super cheap and fast (1.88$ for little more than 1kg).

I've lived in Luang Prabang for nearly 3 years before, it's pity that I never checked Belle Rive from inside , whilst I knew the terrace in and out. Last week I had to fly to LP at a very short notice and Belle Rive was the only hotel came across my thought. Everything exceeded my expectations from the moment I called the hotel to book to the moment they dropped me off to airport. Clean, charming, beautiful hotel and the most important thing to me is the STAFF, very kind and welcoming team. Next time in LP, Belle Rive is the way to go. Thank you for having me.

Love! Love! LOVE! The service and space were perfect from the moment we walked into the lobby. We were greeted with tea and cool towels in the lobby and fresh fruit in our room. The room was stunning! It was clean and really large; 2 stories large! Our bedroom was upstairs! Our balcony looked over the main street and the Mekong river...so romantic. The hotel restaurant was literally outdoors on the river so of course we had breakfast, lunch and dinner on the Mekong. All the staff were incredible; beyond friendly, bent over backwards to help and so very zen. I can't say enough about how kind they are. From the wait staff at breakfast and dinner to the receptionists at the front desk; all, every single one always happy to help. Mr. We was always there it seemed. I don't think he sleeps but what an amazing, first class staff member. He literally never stops smiling. This place definitely turns the relax and romance up 1000 points! I wish I could give this piece of paradise a MILLION stars!!!

The Belle Rive is such a lovely place to stay that we don't even think of staying anywhere else. This was our first time in the original part of the hotel - we stayed in the corner room which was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The central location (you can walk everywhere and the hotel also has bicycles), attention to detail and efficient friendly staff all make staying here a wonderful experience. Did I mention breakfast on their restaurant terrace overlooking the Mekong? I can't think of a better way to start the day!

One of my favourites properties any where in the world. Coming back for our second stay was even better than the first. Staying in one of the balcony maisonettes with a duplex bedroom and a balcony overlooking the street below. Rooms are nicely decorated and very functional. The upstairs bed room is great for families that crave some bubble time during the day. The balcony is a great place to enjoy some people watching as well as having a view of the Mekong. The staff are simply wonderful. Friendly, helpful and definitely willing to go the extra mile to make their guest feel welcomed. True Lao hospitality.

There are so many thoughtful and special and unique touches to this hotel but I want you to be surprised too so come see for yourself! You can expect a beautiful room with a spectacular river view and very kind staff who go out of their way for you…. “boutique” in the best sense. I stayed here 5 nights in July 2021 and loved every minute. Highly recommended, and a big thank you to Mr. V and other staff, and co-owner Damian for the hospitality.

We stayed two nights in a deluxe room with a river review. The rooms are situated in a colonial style building overlooking the riverside road with a good review of the Mekong. The rooms are a bit small for a small family (2 adult and 1 kid) but that's expected given the age of these buildings. The rooms are tastefully decorated and very clean. The water pressure from the shower was reasonable and bed is reasonably comfortable. Being in the old quarter of LPB city, there of course wasn't a whole lot of amenities to enjoy however just staying in the building is a fantastic experience that we truly enjoyed. The breakfast was a great mix of western and Asian foods where you can choose to eat in their a/c restaurant or across the road on the patio overlooking the mighty Mekong under shaded palms. Of course, we took the latter option. We also highly enjoyed their all their menu and must say that this place has one of the, if not the best, spaghetti carbonara in all of Laos. Although we didn't have it this time round, but their beef burger is also to point (which we had on our last trip). Lastly, the most impressive part of this hotel is the level of service. Absolutely impeccable and faultless. Staff are well trained and passionate about their jobs which is fantastic to experience.

Dear youli_in_asia Thank you very much for staying with us and reviewing our services. It was truly wonderful to meet you, your husband, and your son during Lao New Year 2021. We much appreciate your comments regarding the delicious food, warm and professional service, and the tastefully decorated and clean room - especially from a Luang Prabang experienced traveler like you. Hopefully next time one of our Maisonette- or Family Rooms are available. They are indeed bigger and we trust more suitable for a family of three. Looking forward to your next stay with us. On behalf of our entire team, stay healthy, and best regards to Vientiane. Khop Chai lai lai Damian Killer Co/Owner & General Manager

Second time at Belle Rive in 6 months. Luang Prabang is emptier now but the staff at Belle Rive are going above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. They are truly the highlight of the hotel. Not to disparage the hotel. The location is excellent, a few minutes walk to where ever you want to go in LP. The rooms are well appointed. Beds extremely comfortable. We had our favorite balcony room with a view of the Mekong. They make your stay as easy as possible. Highly recommended

We stayed for 4 days here taking advantage of the quiet in Luang Prabang. Our room was in the newer building across the street from checkin. Well appointed, the rooms were spacious and our balcony overlooked the mighty Mekong in full monsoon kit. Breakfasts were on a lower terrace with fantastic views of the river. Decent food and a lovely place to sit. What was truly amazing was the staff at Belle Rive. They were always very attentive, friendly, helpful and paid attention to details. They made the visit so easy and enjoyable. HIghly recommended, especially now when many good room deals are on offer.
