Hi, we are originally from the UK but live and work in KL. After reviewing all the hotels on Tripadvisor and wanting to stay somewhere a bit remote and different we choose Hillside. Yes it was remote and a fair distance from town. But there were various options for transport to town for us which we used. Really enjoyed the...

Dear BrownsPawcatuck, thank you for taking the time to write this very positive review. Nevertheless i have got the impression and this is not for the first time that some of our guests don't fully understand the rating system of Tripadvisor. Of course Hillside isn't a five star accommodation, that's why we are classified here on TA as a 3...

I stayed here with a few friends for 4 nights. The location, though slightly remote, is beautiful and beyond peaceful. The kitchen puts out some of the best food I've ever eaten in my life--the green curry is a must! Manager Pierre is always on call and does his best to meet all guest needs. One caveat--if you're not ok...

Conveniently remote, the Hillside is by far my favorite out-of-town resort near Luang Prabang. Only a half hour away from the busy tourist center and airport, the Hillside is situated in a steep-sided, secluded valley, the home of cave dwellers 10,000 years ago. Pierre, the host, is extremely congenial and accommodating, multi lingual and has great in-depth information about local...
