Four nights at Riverside Boutique unfortunately started on a weekend. What the hotel photographs don't show are the cheap bars located a few hundred feet from it and these blared awful, very loud music for nearly 48 hours... including from large pickup trucks that parked...More
In our year of travel, we splurged a bit for a long weekend stay at Riverside to celebrate my partner's birthday, and it was SO worth every penny! The friendly staff took excellent care of us, and we were kindly upgraded to a spacious, well-appointed...More

Yes, we took a private transfer from the Riverside to Luang Prabang. It was quite expensive and probably not worth it if I'm honest. The hotel were surprised that we wanted a private transfer when they offer a minibus service themselves. I'd go for this option instead as the journey time is not significantly reduced with a private transfer. It took about 7 hours door to door with a couple of quick stops on the way. The journey is beautiful and you see a lot of 'real' Laos along the way, and a lot of different geography from flat plains to windy mountain roads.
Honestly though, I'd take the hotel minibus over a private transfer. It will save you money and not take much longer.
