Reviewed October 22, 2013

The management is very service oriented and speak excellent English.
The grounds are beautifully landscaped with many blooming plants. The pool is clean and sparkling with an adequate number of loungers and plenty of towels.
The rooms are roomy, modern, and clean. There is a large flat screen satellite TV with some English channels. It is very quiet here. The king size beds are firm and very comfortable with good pillows. The lighting is not conducive to reading in bed. The view from your balcony is magnificent with the river and the mountains beyond.
There were not many customers when we were there and the breakfast was limited. They willingly prepare your bacon and eggs to order and make an excellent omelet. The coffee is good. From the breakfast balcony you have a nice view of the river, the mountains, and the bridge across the river. It is interesting to watch the local traffic cross the bridge which is adjacent to the breakfast balcony.
The hotel restaurant the Crab D'Or is only a bit more expensive than the local places. The outstanding service at the restaurant makes it a good value. The Laotian food at the restaurant is a little bland. There are many local restaurants within easy walking distance. Just steps away across the bridge is the Viman Vang Vieng Restaurant with a German owner who serves German as well as local dishes.
Laundry prices are reasonable by western standards and offers same day service.
The hotel charges 2.5% to use a credit card for payment.
The main thing I look for in a hotel is a good night's rest. You will get that here. This was a completely satisfying stay. If I return to Vang Vieng, this is where I will stay.

What an amazing place . The view for our room was just spectacular and would have to say it was the most scenic place in Laos . We stayed for 3 night and didn't want to leave . All the staff were fantastic and Henry is doing a great job to make sure they are all trained well . The pool and the grounds are lovely and well maintained . We visited Vang Vieng in 2011 which was a bit of a party town with a lot of problems so it great to see the town has cleaned up all the problem bars and in time I can see the town become more special like Luang Prabang .

Wonderful place for a bit of R&R from the hustle and bustle of Vientiane. Every detail has been thought out with care. Great views and good service quality. Great value for money for those who don't mind spending a bit for an authentic, relaxing, hassle free experience. Food is good and the pool is idyllic.

After a long road trip from Luang Prabang it was wonderful to arrive at the Riverside, amazing location on the edge of the river with a backdrop of lime karsts. Welcomed with a cold drink and upgraded perfect start to our stay. Our room was huge, we found the bed quite soft by Asian standards, so just right for us! A lovely bathroom, shower over bath, a lovely private balcony where one could sit and just soak up the view. Ate at the Riverside restaurant that night after we enjoyed some pre dinner drinks in the downstairs bar watching the locals go backwards and forwards over the bridge. The meal was delicious, a choice of Lao and western style meals, great service we were the only diners, returned to our room to find our bed had been turned down, lovely. Next morning we had a great breakfast overlooking the river, this is indeed a very special place.

Room Tip: Upstairs amazing view.

My friend and I travelled to Vang Vieng to partake in a little tubing! After a hairy ride from Luang Prabang, we arrived to find ourselves in a beautiful spot alongside the river. Gorgeous hotel with a great pool and only a 5 minute walk into town.
Breakfast was quite nice and the staff lovely. I would stay here again!

The hotel is nicely done and invites for relaxing days at the river with a good view to the toll bridge which shows a lively passing crowds of locals and tourists! The pool is made to hang out after a day in the nature and shows a nice outlook to the hills. Breakfast is served on second floor with outside sittings to have a excellent view over the garden. The breakfast buffet is so so and never order a coffee latte;-/ not at all recommended! The rooms are perfectly clean and the bed comfy! We had a perfect stay. Go out for dinner hotel rest too high priced!
