Elephant Crossing Hotel

A touch of class

What we say: 4.5 stars

Elephant Crossing is a popular midrange hotel with a five-star view. Perched on the Nam Song, it has 31 rooms spread out over four floors and the top floors get spectacular unobstructed views of the river and mountains from the balconies. Incredibly, rooms on the third and fourth floor are classed as standard rooms and are actually cheaper. Yes, they are slightly smaller and not as refined, but we’d definitely choose these just for the view rather than the deluxe rooms on the second floor.

All rooms are spacious and tasteful with polished floors, sprawling beds, wooden furniture and Lao silk accents. Modern comforts like TV, mini-fridge and air-con are on offer, and WiFi is now available throughout the hotel. Deluxe rooms have a few more bits of furniture and decoration, and better bathrooms with bathtubs, countertops and modern fixtures. However, standard rooms receive more natural light and are therefore brighter.

The hotel has an enormous riverside terrace restaurant with both covered and al-fresco seating. This is definitely the spot to treat yourself to a sundowner or a fiery Lao meal. Elephant Crossing is a popular option for its price point and it consistently receives glowing reviews.
