Reviewed January 25, 2014

With the perfect location in Luang Prabang and 5 star service, this hotel is great. Mekong Riverview has charming decor, a relaxing atmosphere, great restaurant, and the ability to walk to most sites.
The staff was friendly and provided great customer service.

My daughter and I stayed here for two nights and found it to be lovely. The breakfast is served across the street on the Mekong River and the owner invites guests to join him for a glass of wine in the restaurant. It's very close to many sites and a bridge takes you across the river to a weaving a paper making village. All pretty fantastic.

Just loved everything about staying here. Something really special. Wonderful location. Walking distance from most things- esp shopping. The Mekong River is opposite. The rooms are large, spacious, well appointed with a fabulously comfortable bed and with a wonderful balcony to sit and watch the world go by. Lovely bathroom. It has a sort of old world charm. The owner is there to greet you,invite you for an early evening drink, and takes an interest in how your trip is going. The staff are wonderful and keen to do everything they can to help you have a great experience. Bikes belonging to the hotel are free- as is everything in the fridge. The breakfast is across the road right beside the Mekong. Everything you could want and more- the bacon was just delicious. I was very sorry to leave.

As this was our second visit to Luang Prabang and this wonderful hotel I was hoping I would not be disappointed. Five stars is not enough for Urban (the owner) and his staff including Noi who was also there two years ago. Since our last visit Urban has built a lovely cafe right on the banks of the Mekong which serves breakfast and meals all day. The breakfast is buffet but with an al la carte hot selection for you to choose from. Wonderful fruits including sliced mangoes and paw paw, croissants..heated of course as are the coffee and tea cups and a great selection of breads from the French bakery are just a few of the choices. Home made ginger and green tea is a highlight as well.The rooms are fantastic with Swedish electric beds which I think are the most comfortable I have ever slept in. French doors open on to balconies overlooking the very quiet road and the Mekong River….a wonderful sight. We stayed New Years Eve and the rooms are so quiet we did not hear any noise.A kettle and tea, coffee, milo etc was a addition to the rooms since our last visit.
In the reception area the same is available all day including freshly baked cake each afternoon.
The staff are more like a family as the hotel has only 18 rooms so the personal service is outstanding.
They are all lots of fun and I really can't wait to go back again.

Room Tip: All front rooms have French doors leading on to your own personal balcony which overlook the Mekong...

Was attracted to this property thru Trip Advisor so when we decided to visit Luang Prabang this was the place to stay, one of the best decisions made. Stayed for 4 nights in a lovely upstairs Junior Suite (room 29). Just great, all timber, the best bed, nice bathroom with 3ply loo paper and urinal as well as conventional toilet, and a balcony with comfy furniture to watch the river drift by. Combine that with a great selection of staff both reception, waiting, kitchen and cleaning and complimentary champers on Xmas Eve and you have all the makings for one of the best holidays you could have. Needed to get a jumper as there was a cold snap, and off we went in the golf cart with Mr Vee at the helm, money first then to various stores until he found one with big enough clothing. Did the negotiating for us and we were set. Organised our boat trip anything else we wanted. This place is just so good, the limitless coffee in reception complete with afternoon cake, great restaurant with the best croissants & baguettes for breakfast. If Luang Prabang is on your itinerary (and it should be), then stay here.

Room Tip: Upstairs for the best view of the river
