I was at this hotel just before few weeks of the massive earthquake in Nepal.During my two months of stay in Nepal, I had not found any better HOTEL other than River Side. All your expectations coming true. All surprises are waiting for you. Just tell Manish what you wish to do, he arranges everything. A very friendly environment!!

We spend 4 nights at the River Side Hotel in Chitwan in October . Power cuts were a problem, so that meant the electric ceiling fan only worked some of the time.

We loved our 3 night stay here.The room was a little damp and smelled a bit musty on the 1st night but that cleared as the room aired. Also we didn't eat often in the restaurant as it was kind of pricey but this aside it was great. The young staff are super friendly and very motivated. They are genuinely... More

We stayed for 2 nights in a room overlooking the river and had a great view of the sunsets. That's where the excellent stuff stopped. First the room is ok and big enough but, the hot water was hit or miss. It seemed when we didn't need it, it was there and when we needed hot water, it wasn't. We... More

The hotel is almost in the centre located. There is a beautiful view over the river, as well a nice restaurant. Further more they gave me a good price for a room and they took as well a big spider out of our room. Service was nice, the staff interested in you and in general worth to stay there.
