Beyond the unbeatable location, Urban and his gracious professional staff of the Mekong Riverview Hotel did everything they possibly could to make our stay extraordinary. We actually stayed with them for two nights and then for another three when we returned from adventures in the north which they helped us plan. They even were able to rearrange our flight without...

At the end of the peninsula so nice and quiet. The hotel will take you anywhere in a golf buggy and it is a lovely stroll back from all the main sites. I suspect the view from the top floor is better but we had a bottom suite which was still nice. The staff and owner ( who opens champagne...

We stayed for four nights and the stay could not have been better. From the welcome we received at the start to the goodbye before we left. We were greeted with a welcome drink and a beautifully annotated tourist map with some recommendations marked on. Our room was a junior suite on the first floor (that's the top floor, I...

My top tip for this hotel right here: book direct through their web site, it's easy and prompt. For some reason I was totally unable to book this hotel through the usual internet agencies even months ahead. At this time this is the number one hotel on TripAdvisor in this town and deservedly so. From the time you step out...

Our stay at the Mekong Riverview was too short. It is an excellent quiet hotel within 5 minutes walking of the old town. The best temple is next door. The view across the Mekong river is lovely. The rooms were spacious and very well appointed. The service was excellent and the restaurant deserves to be better known. The hotel is...

If you are looking for a 5 star walled and self-contained property where you don’t have to interact with the city at the end of the day try one of the big resorts; if you are looking for a 5 star location, 5 star hospitality and 5 star cleanliness – stay here! The Mekong Riverview is perfect if you want...

This was my 3rd stay at this amazing hotel and it was just as great as the previous two visits. I had my favourite room which was on the ground floor with a veranda overlooking the Mekong River. From the moment you are collected from the Airport by a friendly familiar face who doesn't hold up a sign because he...

It's all been said before - the Mekong Riverview is truly a wonderful place to stay in Luang Prabang and we hope to be able to return some day. Unsurpassed hospitality by Mr. Urban and his staff, delicious breakfasts on the terrace above the river, great views - what more could one wish for?!

The owner personally greeted us and gave a detailed briefing on what to do and where to dine in Luang Prabang. A perfect visit! Every detail, right down to the plush 3-ply toilet paper, was top notch. Tasty breakfasts by the river were great too. Well done Mekong Riverview -- a traveler cannot go wrong here!

Much has been said in other reviews and I can just agree! What a great hotel on the absolute best location. The location is very important in LP...and believe me, many of the competitors has horrible locations. MRVH is located in the old town on the tip of the historic peninsula...next to one of the main attractions the Wat Xieng...
