This hotel receives some fantastic reviews so I am probably the exception here! The positives are that as mentioned many times, Marion is a fantastic host and makes you feel very welcome. Also if you choose a balcony room, the views are amazing, just be prepared for mosquitos as is to be expected next to the river! The location is...

We stayed here for 3 nights in the beginning of January and it was really excellent place. We had a cosy room with an amazing wood terrace, all very clean and stylish. Very good breakfast indeed. Guesthouse's owners are very nice people, helpful at any case, they really care about their place and about visitors. If once I will have...

All the reviews talk about the breakfast and I can see why! For me, it was one of the highlights of my stay in Luang Prabang, simply because I knew I would have a yummy breakfast to start my day. The noodle soup is amazing. Not to mention having a nice plate of assorted fruits as well. Hospitality at Cold...

Cold River is very close to the Nam Khan River and has great views from many of the room. Breakfast was very tasty especially the Noodles. Situated at the end of a quiet lane but all the main attractions are nearby. Very friendly and helpful owners. Already making plans to return to Cold River on our next trip to Luang...

We had an excellent 3-night stay. Marion, the hostess is a mother of two, very busy, yet friendly and helpful. The location, at the end of a lane is quiet and yet only a 15-minute walk to the town centre. There is a decent Italian restaurant nearby and quite a few local eateries. The break-fast is the best we have...

Starting with the pros: Excellent tasting breakfast Very tastefully decorated Very friendly and attentive staff Fully functional room with all relevant appliances Location is about 15min walk from the Old Quarter & therefore makes this place rather quiet Cons: Walls are thin! U will hear all the footsteps of the units above you. Water drains rather slowly in our bathroom...

This hotel is located at the end of a small lane in the heart of the city. It's about a ten to fifteen minute tuk-tuk ride from the airport, which makes for a smooth transition from there. Months ago, we had requested a quiet, twin bed room and those two things are what mattered to us the most. We were...

We spend couple of nights in December, and right from our arrival till we left we enjoyed every minute we spend at Cold River. The French couple who owns the place and their staff were very pleasant, helpful and homely. The stay too was very comfortable with the needed amenities (and breakfast) available right there, plus the location being within...

We spent 2 nights at this beautiful little guest house on the Nam Khan River a day or two ago.
