BelleRive is the best hotel we stayed at during our two week long Thailand - Laos trip in July 2011. We stayed at Chatrium Riverside in Bangkok, and Le Meridien Phuket and Amari Coral Beach in Phuket in the trip.
The best part of the hotel is the staff. Although the staff are young, and some of them are just graduated from a college, they are all well trained. They are friendly, helpful, and energetic. They always ask what else they can do for us. All of services are done in friendly and non-pushy way.
Location is excellent. It is in a quiet part of Mekong River side, but not too quiet. The area has a relaxing and nice atmosphere. We used their bicycle for two days to explore whole town, and found that the area BelleRive is located was the best for us. It is only a minute walk to watch monks' morning alms on the street behind BelleRive, and a 3 to 5 minute walk to watch monks' morning alms on the main street. It is just a 5 to 10 minute walk from the hotel to the main strip where many restaurants are located.
Our room is a deluxe suite which is located in the main building. All guest rooms in the main building are on the second floor, and the first floor in the building is the lobby.
Our room is a loft room. On the lower level, there are a balcony with two chairs and a table, a bathroom, a daybed, a sofa and a table, a minibar, a standard safety box (I can put my laptop, camcorder, and other valuables), and a closet. On the upper level, there are a large computer desk and a chair, a comfortable king size bed, and clothing racks. The room is beautifully decorated and modern. The view of Mekong and a quiet street from the room is very nice and relaxing.
We stayed at BelleRive for 4 nights. Our rates are low season rates, and are "stay 4 nights pay 3 nights promotion" with Agoda.
Breakfast is also the best we had during our two week long trip. It is not a buffet, but we can order an item from each set, and all are tasty. We can eat either on the riverside terrace or at the table in front of the hotel. Eating breakfast watching activities on a quite street and river is really relaxing.
We would like to thank all BelleRive staff for providing us such a enjoyable stay.
