I stayed at the Belle Rive early July this year and it was a wonderful experience. I picked the location because it's in the more quiet part of the Luang Prabang Unesco heritage area. Opposite the street is the terrace and the Mekong river with great views from the balconies. The Tamarind suite I stayed in is in one of the three buildings where the reception can be found too. The suite was amazing and beautifully restored in the French colonial style. Very tastefully decorated and well equipped. I spend a lot of time sitting on the balcony watching street life pass by enjoying a drink or some fruit.
The owner Ell is a very friendly lady and a great host and so is the rest of the staff. Very helpful and always smiling. The day that I arrived she invited me and a few other guests to a complementary Mekong river cruise in a traditional long boat and enjoy a glass or two of wine. This was the perfect welcome after a day of travelling.
If you've decided staying at the Belle Rive, have a delicious breakfast at the terrace. I do miss those a lot and will definitely return to the hotel whenever I'm going back to Luang Prabang!
