Mekong Riverview Hotel
Ranked #2 of 68 Hotels in Luang Prabang
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 10, 2014

This was our second visit to this marvelous hotel. . . Please read the previous reviews of this hotel and we would simply say, "what more can we add". It would be difficult to come to Luang Prabang and not be able to stay here. Not that we deserve it, but we were made to feel like the most special people in the world. Wonderful manager, staff, rooms, cafe, coffee, transportation, little special touches, cleanliness, location, and the list goes on and on. We're actually looking at another trip to LP and are juggling our dates to try and make them fit with availability. The only hesitancy about this rating is that it will make it harder to obtain availability in the future. :-)

From the seamless airport arrival to the duration of our stay, we had an absolutely beautiful experience. The owner, Mr. Urban, is so informative and passionate about Luang Prabang. The hotel rooms are lovely with gorgeous wooden floors, very spacious, and plenty of amenities. The complimentary breakfast came with a lovely view over the Mekong river. The staff is very helpful and will plan excursions for you. Definitely visit the waterfalls with the bear sanctuary. These bears are gorgeous and have been rescued from poaching and bear bile farms for Chinese medicine. We would without a doubt stay here again - you get what you pay for - amazing service, happy clients, and a beautiful view!!!!

Room Tip: View overlooking the river - Junior Suite was perfect for us, and can accommodate a third guest for...

We came to Luang Prabang having already stayed at some wonderful hotels in the region, but the Mekong Riverview Hotel was a definite positive memory for us during our trip and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay – in fact, we wished that we could have stayed longer. Luang Prabang is a wonderful city and the Mekong Riverview Hotel is a wonderful base from which to explore it.

The hotel is extremely warm and comfortable and the rooms were excellent. The bed, specially imported from Europe, was extremely comfortable – it was hard to get up to view the alms giving in the morning! The service from all of the staff was top-notch and everyone was very helpful in responding to our requests, assisting with restaurant recommendations and bookings and tours. The owner is also very present and welcoming which was very nice. They do a fantastic breakfast and the restaurant has great food and views of the river. They also have an excellent information package available in the rooms with some great tips for visitors.

We would highly recommend the Mekong Riverview Hotel t and would certainly stay again the next time we are in Luang Prabang.

This hotel is really nice and has a wonderful position in Luang Prabang. The prices are a bit high compared to any other place in the town. One thing that disappoited us is that they should have been taken, from the airport but we weren't and stayed one hour waiting before taking a private taxi.they apologized a lot for that. all the staff is really nice and the owner is an extraordinary person. We had a problem with the payment as our card (American Express ) was charged twice and they were really helpful in managing the situation.i would suggest this hotel also as its beds are unforgettable !!!

The Mekong Riverview Hotel(and it is true, it offers a view on the Mekong River) is well situated in the colonial part of the inner city. The staff is very kind, well intended, non intruding, helpful and understanding. The room I was staying was perfect : clean, with the local touche of wooden decoration. The bath room was impeccable. Allthugh the street side windows are not double glazed, there is absolutely no noise issue/problem. Street side traffic drops to a halt once night falls. The outside restaurant provides for a peaceful scenery on the Mekong River. Especially at breakfast. The only "minus" would be the relatively simplicity of breakfast. A little disappointing but then again it is just a dust particle in the overall lovely stay I had. Also, from what I have already seen in SEA, I think the prices of the room could be some 10 to 20% lower.

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.
