“Excellent restaurant, superb location, brilliant staff”
Reviewed 9 July 2013

We never actually stayed at the Hotel but we ate and drank at the restaurant twice. What caught our attention was the brilliant location - right above the Mekong River. It provides a perfect viewing platform of the river in very comfortable and attractive surrounds. The menu is very good serving a full range of drinks and the food is fantastic offering a range of Lao, Thai and contemporary cuisine. The perfect place for an evening unwind and to watch the sun go down.

Room Tip: See other reviews. We would definitely stay here next time (when we're not back-packing!)

We stayed here last week for the first few days of our honeymoon and truly loved it. They upgraded us at no cost when we arrived because I think it was a quiet week. The room and bathroom was modern but comfortable and very clean. The bed was super comfy and the staff were very helpful- providing advice on sites to see and booking excursions for us. We also took full advantage of their bikes they let you borrow for free- a great way to see the city with a little breeze. The free breakfast was also very good, and the location made everything a quick walk or bike ride away. After staying at a few more hotels in Southeast Asia, our favorite is still the belle rive.

Charming hotel located on the Mekong, close to the center of Luang Prabang. The service was excellent and the rooms were designed in artistic good taste, very clean and comfortable. It made our stay in charming Luang Prabang doubly so enjoyable.

Excellent hospitality, provided by caring hosts Paul & Aew and their friendly team of staff.
A beautiful colonial style hotel in a perfect location within easy walking or bike (provided for free) ride distance to restaurants, night bazaar, temples, wine bars and other tourist attractions.
Rooms are very well appointed and come fully equipped with 5 star amenities.
Had the best sleeps ever. Free WiFi coverage works perfectly well, even by the river terrace.
Tranquil river view atmosphere for starting the day with (choose from an abundant breakfast menu) and/or lounging for a sundowner with a nice glass of wine or a cocktail.
A perfect place for chilling out and take it ease. Highly recommended.

Stayed at the BelleRive hotel for several nights in April. The accommodation was lovely and in a great location. The staff were really friendly and the service was amazing. I left a medication bag behind by mistake and the staff located it for me and posted it to me in NZ at no cost - amazing service that I really appreciated. I can't recommend highly enough.

The best place to stay in Luang Prabang. Firstly it is in the heart of Luang Prabang so going around this historic area is easy and close. I would suggest for sightseeing to take the hotel bycicals then you see everything up close and personal.
The rooms are exquisite, I love there bed didn’t sleep so well for a long time, top notch. The breakfast that is included in the room price is served on the terrace at the riverside is great.
We had lunch and dinner at the lower hotel terrace, they serve really good lao food accompanied with good wine. The lower terrace is actually only for hotel guests which gives perfect privacy.
Staff are young students, giving them a chance they are very friendly and helpful. BTW the bar is in the lobby, we always had our last glass of wine there before bedtime…
I would definitely ONLY stay at the Belle Rive hotel when next in Luang Prabang.

...here is the PERFECT solution.
3 lovingly restored colonial style houses in the old center of luang prabang, excellent food on a garden terrace overlooking the maenam khong, the stress of the working week will drop off you after the first glass of chardonnay at sunset (or earlier...??) btw - served in RIEDEL glassware !
comfortable, nice rooms, incredibly friendly and efficient staff and all the attractions of luang probing within easy walking distance.
the best - its only 1 hr away from chiang mai !
