“Great views”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Our rooms faced the Mekong river so we had a great view . The French doors opened so we felt part of the outside life as well .Of course that meant early morning noise from the tut tuts plus the noise of life in the morning . This didn't really bother us at all . Our bed was comfortable , the air conditioner worked well and our bathroom was big . Our breakfast was adequate and all staff were friendly and helpful .
The only downside to this hotel was no bar fridge in the room . ( but they allowed us to use the kitchen fridge ) and not enough storage for clothes . We stayed here for 5 nights so it would have been good to access our clothes easier . The Internet access was spasmodic but the television reception was okay . We also had the bonus of monks walking pass the hotel early in the morning .

Room Tip: We had a front river view . This was a little noisy even though we didn't mind this some people...

I booked a room for 3 nights and after the 2 day they kicked us out of the hotel to the other river lodge 2. Because they had a group of Thai people coming and they were full booking. Unbelievable!!! Never again would I even recommend this hotel to a friend!

Reviewed 20 January 2013

This Lodge is a nice looking place, the room was fine, location good, staff fine as mentioned by others.

I thought breakfast was OK, a bit above average for the region though at $50 a night there is better value elsewhere in Luang Prabang.

The biggest negative was the noise as all the local Tuk Tuk drivers gather to eat their breakfast outside from 4 AM and rev their engines to clear the exhaust for the day or something. I checked out early because of this and so did a number of other people. As this does not appear in every review maybe TukTuk drivers gather elsewhere some days. Others also complained of the noise late into the night.

Luang Prabang is great for a visit though, and maybe the owner of this hotel could do something to save his business. Until then I suggest stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: At the back maybe quietest.

River lodge is a small hotel located on the road along the Mekong River, so for some rooms you can have river view. From the hotel, you can just walk to many of the city's main attractions ; Royal Palace Museum, Mount Phousi ( the highest point in the city ), some beautiful temples, night market walking street, etc. If you're interested in local life, morning fresh market is just 50 meters away, famous local coffee shop is just across the street, etc.
Staff were nice and friendly. The room is clean and ok furnishing ( for this price range).

Now, the weakness; the noises from the street- traffic, people, dog etc. Most of them went down at 11 pm and started again at 5-6 am. The bright side was it woke me up early so I had time to enjoy local activities in fresh market, monk feeding process, bike ride, local coffee sipping, etc.

It's a first time when i travel at Luang Prabang with my favorite. We stay at Luang Prabang River Lodge for 3 nights. The hotel is beside the Mekong river and opposite at Prachaniyom coffee shop. It's easy to travel around, near morning market and night market just walk about 5 to 10 minutes. If you prefer to enter monk's alms bowl in the morning you can buy sticky rice at the hotel and then walk away for 5 minutes to the temple, easy isn't it ? And breakfast is good you can order the american breakfast, noodle, soft-boiled rice they serve with French loaf jam, butter and coffee. Everything is perfect price are reasonable, we have fun and would like to suggest to all traveler to visit the Luang Prabang River Lodge.
