Other reviews have covered some of these points but we particularly appreciated the following things: - Damian, the General Manager is friendly, helpful and always on hand to answer any questions...

My wife, daughter and I were looking for a place far from the tourist path that gave us a taste of Laos and its people. That's why we chose Luang Prabang - a UNESCO World Heritage site. The old part of town retained an old world charm and a consistent architectural style that reflects the town's colonial and indigenous influences....

The lazy mornings, eating wonderful breakfasts (full spread, including fresh fruit, homemade yogurt, French pastries) under wide umbrellas...

Excellent location, attentive service and management, wonderful daily breakfast overlooking the Mekong, beautiful hotel and rooms. Unless having a pool is super important to you, I can't imagine a better place to stay in LP. Oh, and the complimentary bicycles are a very nice plus!

The Bellerive is situated across the street from the Mekong in the heart of Luang Prabang (unlike most of the other high-end hotels which are not walkable) in three beautifully restored colonial buildings. My room, which was one of their cheaper offerings and a steal at what I paid, was absolutely huge. Think character, individuality, high ceilings, warm wood floors,...
