The hotel has an eating terrace on the river's edge where you can observe the slow peaceful activity in the early mornings building up int a hive of activity in the evening when dozens of boats take tourists for rides upend down the Mekong.

              Good but not the Best”

              Living in Vientiane I often go to Luang Prabang for a few nights R&R and I'm slowly working my way through the hotels to find the one I always want to go back to, this isn't it. Starting with the positives, excellent, attentive staff (in all fairness to the other hotels in LP this is normal here but still appreciated). The WiFi was excellent The breakfast is an all you can eat affair on a terrace with amazing views of the Mekong. The negatives are that my room opened onto the street so I felt a privacy issue and the air conditioning was a problem. A well appointed room with a powerful shower but the toilet needed a bum gun which is normal in Laos. I'll keep looking but a different room here is definitely an option.

              Legendary hospitality!”

              What amazed me at this hotel is that their breakfast time is anytime after 7:30am until the restaurant close! That was a fabulous idea especially for storyteller like me working in the night ! And they have such a generous management thinking , the minibar is full and free ! And later check-out offered ,and also room upgrade when available! And I love the room design that loft-style , gush ,I can't say enough good thing about it ! If I ever come back to Luang prabang ! I will absolutely stay here again ! And I will recommend to everyone I know who will pay. Visit!

There restaurant has a wonderful restaurant on the river where we had a delicious breakfast;dinners and cocktails-all while watching life on the Mekong. Just amazing!

              Absolutely the place to stay in Luang Prabang. Hotel adjacent to the river with an awesome terrace overlooking the Mekong for Breakfast or Sunset drinks / dinner. The staff were so accommodating, organising a private sunset cruise, cake and drinks for my partner's birthday, also decorating the room. A special call-out to Ouy, who served us breakfast every morning, such a charming guy. The room was traditionally decorated with beatutiful furnishing, just a very comfortable and pleasant experience. Couldn't recommend The Belle Rive more highly.

              A relaxing retreat ”

              We visited during the rainy season and the staff was able to recommend rainy activities. We did the city tour and had a great guide that was very flexible with making some additional stops to some artisan workshops and stores. The hotel also helped customize some village tours where again we could visit the weavers workshops and stores. Better than going to any gallery or art museum!! The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating due to the weather. We were able to extend our checkout time as our flight was not until the late afternoon. Very nice!! Thank you!!

              You can not get better service, all the staff was capable in English (and other langues) always happy to talk to you and suggest places to tour, eat and advice. Amazing to be in a heritage colonial building however the room design did not allow for a separate shower room. Hope you are not traveling with family!

              Excellence is in the details”

              I travel frequently to Luang Prabang, enjoying and being refreshed by its unique offerings and atmosphere. This trip I had the pleasure of experiencing the special details of Belle Rive, which add up to making this a very pleasurable stay. The staff in its cordiality and efficiency impress first, and the cool lobby with scented towel and fresh lemongrass juice welcomed me as my room was checked and readied. Details I noted and appreciated include complimentary mini-bar, fine bathroom products, bicycle usage, Benetton pastries, and daily sunset cruise. To me, these small gestures separate Belle Rive from many of the other luxury properties in LP. Credit to Damian for his fine Swiss training and sensitivity to both client and staff. Location well placed along the Mekong strip of the town. I’ll be back...

              I had a great stay here, in one of the upstairs Frangipani rooms. Staff were all very friendly, and having breakfast or a sunset drink out on the terrace by the river was a real treat. The room was spacious and comfortable, and really felt like home, especially with it's own entrance and staircase. I'm finding it hard to think of anything that could be improved, except that the Internet access was unreliable—anyway I ended up connecting through my phone which was faster ($5 SIM card bought at the airport). Also being right on the street there was some noise under the window at times, but that's about it. A lovely place and I would recommend to anyone.

              This is my third visit to this hotel, which speaks for itself as a recommendation. It is beautifully located on the Mekong in the quiet part of town. The Swiss manager and Lao staff doing everything possible to make one’s stay pleasant. I wouldn’t stay anywhere else on my next trip to this world heritage town.

              Lovely stay right by the Mekong at the Belle Rive”

              This property sits right by the Mekong river, and is a short 5 minute walk to the main street. Room was spacious and clean but the bedsheets were oddly a tad uncomfortable. The hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming and there is a complimentary sunset cruise offered for guests (which includes a drink). Breakfast is at a very nice terrace which overlooks the Mekong - perfect for a lazy morning.
