We had a meeting nearby so the location was good for us but it might be out of the way for those seeking to do tours of the the city across the river. There is a boat that will take people to the hot spots although we didn't use it. Also , there is a drop off for the commuter... More

Booked a deluxe river view for four nights in January 2014. Ended up leaving after two nights as I just couldn't stomach staying there any more. Believe all the negative reviews - the hotel is outdated, out of the way, with unhelpful staff, most with little/no English, concierge who does dodgy fixed price deals with taxis, dirty rooms, mosquitoes hanging...

Terrible service at the front desk since we arrived. Not sure if the lady in charge was upset for something but she was rude even when we asked for simple directions about public transport. In addition, we booked a triple room under the category "Deluxe River View" expecting to see the river but our view was to the back street... More

My family and I first came to this hotel back in 2008 and liked it so much we came back in 2009 and 2011. This year, the staff were not friendly, the porter hung around VERY obviously for a tip. We had to ask for tea and coffee baskets on the first day and they were not replenished. Also on... More

We rented a "deluxe, river view" room for three adults. We were told at the front desk that 'river view' did not mean we would see the river (description on Agoda said partial view). You have to book a River Front room to actually see the river. Other than that, we had a huge room...too big to see the little... More

Personally I prefer The Royal River to the Hilton. I stayed for 10 days in Royal Suite for a fraction of what it would have cost me in the Hilton after reading some of the reviews I was a bit apprehensive. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed staying at The Royal River. Ok yes, it could... More

The wifi is very expensive considering it is free in most hotels these days. On... More

We booked a suite here and we were not disappointed, it was huge, with 2 balconies. There is a bit of a language difficulty but not to bad. Breakfast was basic but it had all you need. Also there are no restruants close by as the property is well away from the tourist traps, we were happy to eat hawker... More

This hotel was wrongly advertised as a 4 star hotel on trivago, it is actually a 3 star but I would say it doesn't even deserve that. The staff is very unwelcoming and mostly miserable; giggling in a mocking way between themselves in front of customers. We booked the value twin rom which actually ended up being a room without...
