We spend couple of nights in December, and right from our arrival till we left we enjoyed every minute we spend at Cold River. The French couple who owns the place and their staff were very pleasant, helpful and homely. The stay too was very comfortable with the needed amenities (and breakfast) available right there, plus the location being within...

We went to the cold river guesthouse for four days and absolutely loved it. Great staff and helpful owners, clean rooms, perfect breakfasts not any negative points. If you want to go to a place nearby the town centre go to this quiet and peaceful place. Thank you for the great days we had in luang prabang!

We stayed in Cold River for 7 nights and we loved it. We took the family room and it is spacious and the room was nicely decorated. We love the little details of the guest house, it gives you a very warm feeling- like that of a home. Cold River is tucked in a corner of a very quiet street...

Actually quite like the bit remote location which is more local, but still within walking distance to every attractions and main street. Very friendly and helpful owner and staff, excellent breakfast! Also very comfortable bed and super clean room. Though got a bit cold in the night, maybe just because didn't prepare enough clothes...

Fabulous stay. The French owners went out of their way to make you feel welcome. The room was beautiful and the breakfast was served out in their courtyard which was relaxing and very pretty. Situated very near the river. Just gorgeous, thank you Cold River.

What a fabulous place to stay. The French couple who own this guesthouse are lovely and very helpful. Great room with a lovely hot shower!!! This is along a quiet back street, which felt very safe to walk down. So we had a peaceful sleep, yet only a few minutes walk to the main bars and restaurants and about 10...
