“Tripadvisor photos show wrong hotel”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

Beau Rivage Mekong Hotel is a good choice and location to stay in Vientiane .

Travellers should note that the Tripadvisor photos on this page are showing the wrong hotel,the photos are showing the large Mekong Hotel which is located inland from the river.

The travellers photos shown on the Tripadvisor page are correct and show the Beau Rivage Mekong Hotel which is located on the Mekong River front.

To help travellers and prevent further confusion, Tripadvisor should remove the Mekong Hotel photos and replace them with correct photos showing the Beau Rivage Mekong Hotel.

Stayed here 2 nights on a business trip to Vientiane and really enjoyed it. A bit pricey, but great value - invest that little extra for a superior room, as the view of the Mekong (including balcony) is absolutely unbeatable and is the main reason you would want to stay here. Rooms had a quirky layout, but everything worked great - including the wifi, which was surprisingly fast and stable. The hotel is well run by a friendly Aussie guy and its neighbouring restaurant (where you get your breakfast) is similarly great at all hours of the day - great meals and a terrific ambiance. They also offer a convenient airport pickup/dropoff service for about $8. You won't need taxis to get anywhere though, as the hotel location is just a brief walk from the main city area, but enjoys a quiet environment at night. As others have noted, the trip advisor main photo of this hotel is incorrect - showing the nearby 'Mekong Hotel' instead. Note that a tuk tuk driver I hired also mistook the two and took me to this place instead of the Beau Rivage - hopefully this will preempt any confusion on your part! Overall, highly recommended!

Room Tip: Get a superior room with view of the river, it's worth it!

This hotel is in a great location overlooking the Mekong River, We paid a bit more for the view over the river and it was worth it - there was a very small balcony you could sit on and relax enjoying the view. It is very close to the city centre and the night marketand didn't feel the need to ever have toget a tuk tuk, it was literally a 10 minute lazy walk.

We were only there for 2 nights but great little place.

Room Tip: Pay the little extra for the view of the Mekong

Arrived for 4 nights at the end of our holiday in Laos. The location on the water front is superb and relatively quiet. Gordon the owner is extremely friendly and helpful and this spreads through his staff. We had one the rooms overlooking the river and the views were superb. However, there was very little space in the room for 2 adults and 2 suitcases and no storage space except a hanging rail. The room looked great but practically was poor. We had a late checkout and had to move rooms to one of the garden view rooms which was smaller but actually had more space!
The design of the hotel is good but unsuitable for anyone with mobility problems as the upper floors are only reached by a spiral staicase, there is no lift.
Breakfast offered at The Spirit House next door is good,with plenty of choice and decent coffee along with friendly service and The Spirit House also offers a great place t unwind with a beer whilst watching the sunset over the Mekong.
The hotel is only a short walk from the night market and town and despite the problems with the room offers a tranquil ,safe place to stay.

Room Tip: the Mekong View rooms offer just that ,the garden view rooms are more practical

I was in Vientiane with a couple of friends and stayed at the Beau Rivage Mekong Hotel. We all loved the charming welcoming and all services provided, made us feel like we were the most important guests. It’s a hotel with style and nicely decorated, in my opinion is the perfect combination between old and new, between European style and the local traditional style. The rooms are nice and very clean and the beds are also fine. If you book a room on one of the upper floors you can also get a wonderful view at the river. The establishment is clean and the rooms are quite large. The downside is that in order to get breakfast you have to go to another building. We would recommend the place with no hesitation to all who are looking for a place to stay while in Vientiane.

The picture on Tripadvisor opening page is NOT the Beau Rivage!
I can't really find anything negative to say about this small hotel. Rooms are different from about any other hotel hotel, I have stayed in. The view across the Mekong is unbeatable. Just sitting in the room drink in hand watching the sunset is worth the full rate - which is reasonable. Very friendly and helpful staff - not least the very Australian owner (speaks very fast and very Australian!) Breakfast is fresh and good served in the adjacent Spirit House restaurant. Which also serves very good lunches and dinners at reasonable prices. Maybe two small downsides: The stairs are very difficult to negotiate if you carry any luggage - but help is mostly near. And then the mosquitos. But you probably can't blame the hotel for that. Remember to apply plenty of spray!
Do spend the extra charge for a Mekong-side room. It's worth it.
I can hardly wait to get back.

Room Tip: Take a Mekong-side room.

We enjoyed staying at the Beau Rivage Hotel.

The absolute highlight was the service that Gordon and his Team provided. The could arrange anything from restaurant reservations to transport in town for sightseeing or longer trips to other areas of Laos.

I can not say enough nice things and when we return we will stay with Gordon and his tremendous team!
