We stayed at the Cold River for 5 nights and for us it was the perfect place to stay in Luang Prabang. Far enough away from the absolute center to be quiet, but still close enough to reach most places in the center in 10 minutes by foot. We really liked the style of the hotel, all made out of wood and looking very authentic, plus their approach to avoid plastic waste (free refillable water etc). Staff is really nice too and gives great recommendations with regards to restaurants/trips etc. Very recommendable!!

Stayed here for 2 weeks while on a medical mission. Perfect for my needs. Breakfast every morning was great and a bit of a French twist, endless coffee and great service. Laundry service was efficient and the same price as other services in town. Close enough to downtown to make it convenient, but very private. The couple who owns the house take pride in their little corner of the world. I hope to be back in July. Look forward to seeing them again.

We spent 4 perfect nights at Cold River Hotel, and can't wait to come back! French owned by a lovely couple named Marion and Rudy, who personally made sure our stay was comfortable and gave us lots of advice on where to eat. We stayed in the homestay next door to the main hotel, and our room was spacious and had a stunning view of the Nam Khan river. The hotel is also conveniently located next door to Utopia, one of the most popular cafe's in Luang Prabang right now. Breakfast was included in our reservation and they provided a choice between eggs/baguette or Lao chicken soup or chicken fried rice, with fresh fruit and a sweet breakfast cake or crepe. The whole spread was delicious, especially the coffee and fresh tropical fruits. On site laundry service makes traveling simple. We completely fell in love with Luang Prabang and this hotel/homestay. Thank you Marion and Rudy for everything!

Laid back, inexpensive, bit tired - just like the Town. I don’t mean that in a negative way either. There’s not a lot of fuss to the place and the focus is on being out and about in the area. The owners are very nice and available. The location is a few streets removed from the busier part of town so it’s pretty quiet (except for the neighbor’s rooster) but close enough to walk to where you want to go. Good value for money although I’d lobby for a slightly larger breakfast offering, i.e. juice, cereal option, ...

Spent a few nights here recently and enjoyed it. View of the Nam Khan river is nice and set back from the main road means its quiet. Rooms are as they describe but the bathrooms are worn and the shower was really weak. Breakfast was good, try the chicken noodle soup. The guy who's on reception all night and does the breakfasts is an absolute sweetie and was super helpful. Quick and efficient laundry service on - site/ There's cold water stations on very floor which is a nice touch. Take mossie spray for your room - here are zillions of them! It's about 15 20 mins walk into town but there are a few restaurants close-by if you don't want to go that far. Great coffee shop "Zurich" 5 mins away. All in all, a good choice.
