We really liked the friendly hosts which were always present and very friendly and kind. Also the room was great. Very spacious, clean with a good bathroom and places to put things. Also the breakfast was nice with a good choice of stuff. Just my girlfriend had little issue with the pillows and did not have her best sleep. I... More

When we arrived here, we were initially allocated a twin room, although we booked a double. We questioned this, and the staff member spoke with the manager and moved us to a family room, as the double room we booked wasn't available due to an aircon malfunction. Although the initial room allocation was incorrect, the very friendly French manager came... More

Spent 4 nights here, originally booked one night, but had to extend after seeing the place and meeting the owners. The hotel has very nice atmosphere and the rooms are clean. It's located in a quiet alley a little outside town. But it won't take you more than 5-10 min to reach where you want to go by foot.

The managers of this charming guest house are a French couple, Rudi and Marion. They live in the house next door and have one Airbnb room attached to their house. I had booked through Airbnb for 3 nights. Marion had advised me by email to come to the guest house when I arrived. I was met by Rudi who could... More

Marion and Rudy and their young family and attentive staff make you feel welcome from the moment you step into the property. It's located close to the historic LP town - an ideal base to explore the place. During our two stays we didn't use a single prepackaged item, Be it in the shower where we had refillable gentle soap... More

Stayed here for 3 nights as our first stop in Laos. Very welcoming owner on arrival, she gave us a map and explained how to get to the local attractions, helped us with any questions and an upgraded room to a river view was a lovely surprise. Room was basic but had large double doors opening up onto the balcony... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and had an incredible experience. Our hosts were a lovely French family who have recently taken over and started giving Cold River some high end touches without overcharging. We were welcomed and shown to our rooms. Rooms are large and we had a great view of the river from our balcony. WiFi was very... More

Stayed here on a work/play trip and it was perfect, especially for the modest price. It's right on the Nam Khan River down a quiet lane. Rooms are updated nicely, and he included breakfast is delicious (either an egg dish or a Lao dish along with tea or coffee, fruit, yogurt and pastry). The guesthouse is within a short walk... More

We booked four nights and ended up staying almost two weeks. The place is located in a beautiful riverside setting (I think all of the rooms have a balcony that looks out on the river? Ours did!), it's totally quiet at night, the owners and all of the staff are super friendly and willing to help with anything they can--restaurant... More
