In Bangkok terms, great value for money and almost a better view then the way over priced Sky Bar! They also provide "free" bicycles for guest. Unfortunately only for the fist 4 hours (which is just too short for a nice trip around the city). The next hour is a hefty 120 baht. Too much (and probably the reason why... More

We love it at the Riverview Guesthouse. The lady at the reception is wonderful, she can help you out with tips for the city but she is also up for a more personal chat. The views are great and give you some peace even in crazy chinatown. We booked a balcony but didn't use it much, just make sure you... More

Hard to find even our tuk tuk driver had difficulty but the view from the eighth floor is amazing! One of the best river views in Bangkok! Friendly staff serving nice Thai food! Would recommend a visit

I would have given it 5stars if it wasn't for the rock hard bed! All worth it though for the amazing roof top bar/ restaurant and associated views, and good price. Helpful staff and, once you find the place (keep an eye out for the little blue, and a few white, signs) it serves Chinatown well, with an easy walk... More

When in Bangkok I always stay at Riverview Guest House (RVGH). It is my ‘home-away-from-home’. I have been doing this once or twice a year for the last several years. It is a comfortable, economical, ‘no frills’ guest house. Its unfailing attraction for me is its friendly staff, the great roof-top restaurant (River Vibe), its closeness to Chao Phraya River...

The River View Guest House was our first stop in Tahiland. We booked through Internet. When we arrived the receptionist was not very nice anwering our multiple but simple questions, where to have a good meal, where to have a drink, which temples where near. She started to answer in bad manners. She answer the question but with a lack... More

I paid 1200 bat to have a room with balcony but they didn't give me a room expected. Only over 1500bat is available. If I know this I would have reserved 950bat room. By the way the location is good if you're coming from Banglampu area(pier N13-Phra Athit) using boat because pier N4 is very near this guesthouse. Also clean... More

We stayed in a dorm room, the room was clean and comfortable. The shower is good, and the room has lockers and fans. The staff is friendly and helpful, but the hotel doesn't have tours or activities so you have to plan everything by yourself. The location is bad, most taxi drivers don't know it. It is very quite and... More

If you pay a little more and not go for the cheapest room options you really do get a lot more. We have air con, private bathroom, TV, fridge, fan, dressing table, wardrobe, very comfortable beds, reading lamps, fly nets on windows, phone etc etc!!! It might be a good idea to print out the directions in Thai from the... More
