Lonely Planet review
Set in leafy gardens peppered with swing chairs and an attractive veranda to take breakfast by the river, Elephant has 36 tasteful rooms with glass panel walls, spotless en suites and the whitest walls imaginable outside of Heaven. Hmong bed runners, wood floors, air-con, TV and fridge complete the bargain. Make sure you ask for a river view though!
