    Great location, better service.”

    Charming room, great location and views, very attentive staff

    Beautiful boutique hotel located a few minutes walk from the centre of Luang Prabang. The three French Colonial buildings overlooking the Mekong have been tastefully restored and while all rooms we saw were a little different they all featured a comfortable and interesting mix of Lao and western furnishings. All rooms look out to the Mekong located just across the road on the other side of the hotel's outdoor dinning terrace. However the quality of the accommodation was only a part of the experience of the Belle Rive. I have stayed in five star hotels all over Asia and have never experienced this level of friendly, attentive yet understated service. Requests for assistance or advice were dealt with quickly and in a very friendly manner, but it was the little, unasked for touches that happened almost with the guest being unaware that made our stay in Luang Prabang the highlight of our time in Laos. The management team and staff should be congratulated on what they do at The Belle Rive.

    Lovely staff, spacious and clean room right next to the Mekong”

    Spent four nights at the Belle Rive Boutique Hotel, location-wise it was good -- near the main street, good eateries like Tamarind and Bamboo Tree Restaurant, and the main attractions of Luang Prabang like Phou Si mountain. Hotel staff were very friendly and always eager to help, including pointing out LP highlights, helping to book tour packages, and arranging airport transfers (expect a slight mark-up in prices for the latter two though). The complimentary breakfast was great, although serving speed was slightly slow. The hotel is right next to the Mekong -- the view from my first floor room was not that spectacular but I assume for the higher floors you'd get a better view of the river. Would recommend this place to travelers -- the service, clean rooms and location are top-notch.

    A Belle Experience!”

    The warm welcome we received at the Belle Rive Hotel set the tone for our three-day stay in Luang Prabang. Thanks to its excellent location, we could tick off our To See and To Do list with ease. Our room was comfortable but unfortunately it didn't have a balcony and we had to climb up a flight of steps. However, their restaurant across the road was just above the Mekong river. One could relax there for hours and soak in the beauty. The hotel's offer to partake breakfast included in the room tariff any time during the entire day was certainly a first!! So was the complimentary mini bar stocked with soft drinks and juices! A one-hour sunset cruise with a bottle of wine (or juice!) was another generous gesture. And had we been younger, we could've taken one of their cycles gratis and gone around the beautiful heritage town of Luang Prabang! We plan to visit Luang Prabang again... and it'll certainty be at Belle Rive!

    A world-class hotel in Luang Prabang”

    Belle Rive Hotel Luang Prabang is a world-class hotel complete with exceptional and first world Swiss and European hospitality standards and amenities which is pleasantly surprising considering its location and context. There is meticulous attention paid to every detail - from the heartwarming handwritten note that greets you when you arrive in your room (signed off "Yours respectfully" by the hotel staff) to the complimentary drinks comprising juices, soft drinks and water that guests will find in their mini bar which are replenished on a daily basis. And from the availability of free insect repellant in your room to the thick and luxurious towels and comfortable sheets - basic creature comforts which make or break your hotel stay and experience. The room that we stayed in - deluxe - was tastefully designed with high quality teak furniture, silk cushions and Laotian influences. And everything was in tip top condition - from the powerful aircon in our room (which was a great relief on blisteringly hot days) to the lights. We had everything at our disposal to make our week-long stay a comfortable, worry free and amazing experience. What is also noteworthy and remarkable about the hotel is its breakfast on a charming terrace by the Mekong River. You could order from a plethora of choices - from Western to Asian and Laotian food - and including dessert. And you can rest assured that whatever you choose, it will be of gourmet quality in generous portions, and delivered quickly to your table from the time that you place your order. And as another sign of the considerate and discerning nature of the hotel management, breakfast is available all day at any time. And all the service staff of the hotel's restaurant at the terrace - Vee, David and Pong - deserve special mention for their politeness, friendliness, thoughtfulness and overall kindness. Vee has an elephant's memory and could remember everything that we order without having to jot it down. He would also go out of h

    Attractive Hotel with Welcoming Staff”

    Location, Staff, Ambience

    We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Belle Rive. We travel quite a bit and this is one of the nicest places we have stayed in a long time. It is a smaller boutique hotel located on a quiet street above the Mekong River. It is a very attractive, comfortable property. The staff is very friendly and hospitable. They are always willing to help and make your stay more enjoyable. Tou and Pheng were particularly welcoming and gracious hosts. They are also excellent instructors in the Lao language. A most highly recommended place to stay and relax in Luang Prabang.

    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...

    Beautiful romantic hotel, quiet location, friendly”

    Location in old town, by river, great staff, free bicycles

    We loved our time at the BelleRive. Sure it is more expensive than most other places but was so worth it for a romantic getaway. We had one of the loft rooms in the main building, which was a beautiful design, the huge bed upstairs with the bathroom, closet, safe, chairs and minibar below. The building itself is french colonial but well restored, with modern twists to the rooms. The balcony was really nice to sit out on for a drink and relax, and we had drinks delivered to our room from the bar to our balcony.  We got free cold water daily (2 small 1 big bottle but could ask for more) and free cookies, which made my partner feel at home. The shower has a see through glass door so may be awkward if not travelling with someone you are romantically involved with. It is a great shower though the best of our trip. We got free bikes from the hotel, and a map, which reception took us through showing us main attractions. There were also books in our room, including a 2011 guidebook to Laos! Great breakfast choice, both western and Asian. The baguette bread they had was the best we had in Laos. The staff went out of their way to make you welcome, and we ended up extending our stay because we loved luang prabang so much and didnt want to leave the Belle Rive.

    Great little hotel in Luang Prabang”

    thoughtful layout of rooms, great service

    The Belle Rive hotel was my favorite hotel in our recent travel through Laos, Cambodia and Thailand. It is rare to find a boutique hotel these days that has more to offer than just the gimmicky facade - and Belle Rive proves that it is possible to have a comfortable environment with all small details carefully thought out. From the thoughtful layout of the rooms to small details like extra hooks near the shower for towels, extra glasses and tea-set, to always replenished cookies and fresh fruit in the room they have managed to think of everything a traveler might want. The terrace along the Mekong River is a beautiful and restful place to be and breakfast there is bountiful and very good. I highly recommend the Belle Rive!

    The Belle Rive - A charming boutique hotel in Laos”

    The location - It is just across the banks of the Mekong river. We stayed at the Frangipani room which was very comfortable. the hotel is also close to the temples and the early morn monk walk

    It was delightful and refreshing ! Luang Prabang has that rustic, remote, laid back charm to it. No one seems to be in a hurry, and everything is very relaxed. You wake up to the sound of roosters. Laos is a place that makes you go back in time. The hotel Manager Mr. Daeman did everything to make us feel comfortable and at home. The breakfast served on the terrace is lovely, freshly made. It's a beautiful start to the day , sipping tea and sitting by the mekong watching nature. I would only recommend a good mosquito repellant lotion especially in the evenings. The hotel is in a very quaint building of Lao French Architecture, beautifully painted it stands out. It is in the old quarter which is a Unesco protected site. A sun set boat ride on the Mekong with wine comes complimentary by Belle Rive. It is Close by to the temples , restaurants , the main walking street and night market which is a must to see ! The Monk walk which is a ritual that takes place every morning is a traveller's delight. A sight of Serenity !

    Overall great location, rooms and service.”

    Location; rooms; excellent service; pretty terrace overlooking the Mekong.

    you may pay more to stay at the belle rive compared with a guesthouse but it's in a really great location; the rooms are very comfortable; staff and their service is friendly and welcoming; the terrace overlooking the mekong is lovely - surely the best in town. luang prabang is a quiet, calm town anyway and the belle rive has little passing traffic so there is little disturbance. the only slight irritant for a light sleeper was that the air con unit in the room was a little noisy but it was very efficient.

    Perfect Riverside Hotel”

    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.

    Real boutique gem in Luang Prabang”

    Ambient, service and the room decor

    I have travelled a lot and been to many places around the world. I think my holiday in Luang Prabang has so far been the best. I really love this small town and felt very relax very plasant and I could say that this hotel play a bit part in my wonderful time in Luang Prabang. I love everything about the hotel, the ambient is excellent, i felt taken back through time some how and the hotel decor and its building was just perfect for that with all the necessary comfort. The service was personal and yet professional. At first i felt that the Lao style of service was a bit too slow but i had come to like it as it suited well with the mood of this town. I am very happy that in pick this hotel, the hotel rate is on the higher side but i think it's worth the price. The hotel is beautifully maintained despite the age of the building. I had the duplex room and felt that i have lots of space and my 2 children really enjoy themselves. The only think i find slightly inconvenient is the fact that the toilet is separate from the shower but i guess it's due to the old structure of the building, it'd have been difficult to place the 2 together. Thanks to the staffs and the service team of the hotel, Dermian ( newly arrived GM) who seemed new but yet earnest and sincere and Khun Noi, deputy, who was very helpful and always very eager to help. We really had a wonderful time. The hotel restaurant by the river front is good although the menu is limitted but the view is fantastic and really a good reliable place to chill out.

    Best of Colonial Charm on the River”

    The rooms were beautiful, comfortable and spacious

    The Belle Rive Hotel exceeded our expectations, especially for the price. The rooms were stunning,appeared recently refurbished with a four poster bed and small sitting area. Although colonial in appearance, Laotion art and weavings were featured through out and there is nothing better to do in Luang Prabang than sit on the lower terrace of their river side cafe for sunset cocktails.

    Wonderful, quiet, hotel with spacious rooms”

    quiet, excellent breakfast, situated in the old town

    I had a wonderful stay at the Belle Rive. I would definitely return to this hotel, having stayed in several other hotels of the same quality in Luang Prabang. It was clean, the staff were helpful and spoke fairly good English. I was delighted at the cleanliness and modern bathrooms and the general decor. Internet was a bit of a problem sometimes, but that is a problem all over Laos. Close to all amenities and on a quiet street next to the river. Five stars from me!

    Attentive to needs, facing the Mekong, friendly staff

    IT was just fantastic. Will definitely stay in Belle Rive the next time we are here. It is near everything and the staff are so good in their recommendations for massage or hair or tours etc. The staff are not intrusive but fast and friendly in service. Highly recommended for any visitor to Luang Prabang. Price is a bit on higher side but it is the best among higher priced hotels here.

    Lovely rooms, good service, on the river

    we stayed here for 2 nights and loved our stay. the restaurant spot is across the street with a perfect view of the river, lovely trees for shade since it was incredibly hot when we were there. the room was well appointed, safe, fridge, a very nice bathroom with toiletries, everything you need. no tv but it said i the lobby that you could request one. breakfast was delicious, we had the muesli and it was delicious, filled with coconut and ripe bananas, coffee was good as was the fresh fruit. luang prabang was a lovely town but the belle rive made our stay even better.

    We had such a great stay at the Bell Rive and first time in Luang Prabang. Vone was such a great host and put us up in a beautiful suite and surprised us with a birthday cake for my boyfriend. The staff were all so friendly and the breakfast was delicious with a large selection. Thank you for a wonderful stay - highly recommend this hotel - its in a central location, free to use bikes and lovely accommodating staff :)

    Great place to stay”

    Location, great rooms, very helpful staff

    Excellent from every perspective except it's pricing. Believe they don't do complimentary pick up if you book through Agoda (instead of directly with the hotel)..this is despite a room tariff higher than Hyatt at Bangkok! Tried to charge for the extra bed (despite the booking being accepted with twin sharing) in the room (i travelled with my sister and they didn't have rooms with twin beds)..prices for all the services are much higher if done at the hotel instead of stopping into the first available shop in the next street eg. Boat ride to caves is $50 instead of $20..a ride to the waterfall in a car is $75 instead of $25.. Renting a two wheeler for a day is $25 instead of $15.. Even the purchase of rice and eggs to offer as alms to the priests was $20 but if you step out at 5.45 am before the monks come, people are selling rice baskets for just $1-2 It is easy to book things on ones own in Luang Prabang so maybe stay at this hotel and doing everything outside is the best..the hotel staff are extremely nice but the hotel pricing is off market / high..no lunch/ dinner options for vegetarians at the hotel

    Wonderful boutique hotel in LP”

    The Belle Rive is an excellent find in Luang Prabang. It's situated by the river, and walking distance to town, night market shopping. The hotel is very clean, quiet, and the staff is incredibly friendly. We would definitely recommend, and would stay there ourselves if we visited LP.

    Excellent boutique hotel in so many ways!”

    Excellent service. Good location. Excellent amenities

    Travelled as a group of 3 flashpacking family members. The belle took a mango room, while the guys splurged on the Tamarind. This review is by the guys. On our arrival, we were welcomed by the excellent Noi and Tou with OJs in hand before a quick check-in process 10mins tops before we were brought up to our room (Tamarind 2). All we could say was wow! Excellent furnishings (I'm a sucker for rain shower heads), comfortable beds with down pillows. The winning features would definitely be the unique split level design and the balcony that spills onto the road. That balcony is an excellent place to soak up the morning sun with book in hand or laze around in the evening while enjoying the cool river breeze. Complimentary cookies, fruits and drinks (bottled water is free, and even on request for more). Location wise, it's on the quiet side of the peninsula, within a minute's walk from the upscale L'Elephant and Tamarind, and is only a short distance from the bamboo bridge to Dyen Sabai. Le Banneton is also just round the corner as is Wat Xieng Thong while the main strip is just a bit further, but definitely within walking distance. Service is excellent and exemplary, especially with the affable Noi who does it with such pleasure and poise. Tou is just a tad shy like what all the other reviewers mention, but just as helpful. Bikes are free to rent, just inform Noi/Tou and they will arrange them hassle free. There's a small selection of books at reception which can be borrowed for the duration of the stay. Helpfully, our WC came with a small shelf with a book or two already for some throne reading. The absence of a telly was a tad surprising but refreshing concept once you read the guest book. This boutique hotel however is clearly not meant for those intending to travel on a budget. All good things come at a price (But not all pricey things are good too!) BelleRive is thankfully the former.
