This hotel has great value for the location, view, and breakfast buffet. Plus, the front desk staff were super helpful with recommending hikes, bike rentals, and busses. The view from breakfast alone is worth it, plus they have a make-your-own omelet bar! Highly recommended.

About
Description
The Elephant Crossing Hotel is a welcoming, warm and friendly accommodation venue situated on the river with fabulous views of the Karst limestone mountains! A boutique hotel, well established gardens and long More terrace that stretches along the river. We aim to please all our guests and may they have a memorable experience while staying here with us. The bar and restaurant utilizes local farmers produce and serves Lao, Asian and Euro food. We are doing our best to reduce miles and serve clean chemical free food, with our own organic grown rice and winter vegetables from our own gardens. Our team of local staff are always willing to help with a friendly approach and authentic touch! Less
