Authentic Thai style to the place with great knick knack decor around the place. The rooms were basic with small vanity but fine for a couple. Staff friendly and location not far from town centre. Best feature defiantly the pool overlooking the river. Great for a beer or two!

We stayed here for 4 nights in March, it is a simple but adequate hotel on the river front as the name suggests. The rooms are basic but comfortable with options of rooms on the front over looking the lovely gardens and river. The hotel is well located - about 10 minutes by tuk tuk out of the old city... More

Rooms are of a good standard, owners are really friendly and helpful. Close to the night bazaar. The gardens are beautiful, over looking the river ping. My children enjoyed exploring the garden and really enjoyed the pool. I enjoyed relaxing in the pavilion. Truly lovely place to stay, and will be first port of call on next visit to chang... More

2nd time staying at this lovely Hotel. Dang and her team can't help you enough, it was a pleasure to stay again. The rooms are spacious, and I recommend a room with a balcony overlooking the pool, which is a tropical paradise. The gardens, right next to the ping river are beautiful, with a lot of interesting plants and ornaments... More

It has been several years since I last stayed at the River View and I was once again delighted with the staff and value. The included breakfast is very good and the rooms are spotless. Despite being an older building, it retains it's charm and the garden and pool overlooking the river are unique. For someone looking for centrally located... More

My wife and I were booked to stay at Galare Guest House at the advice from a friend who had been there a year or so ago. However, they had overbooked, and we were sent over to River View Lodge, which was about double the price (about $45 USD/night rather than $22) without having to increase our rate. Upon arrival,...

We stayed for three nights in early July. As a family with 4 children, the hotel were great to put two camp beds in one room and we had two next door rooms. The staff are very friendly, breakfast was great (and they made it early for us when we had to leave for a flight) and the whole place... More

We spent four nights at this adorable, charming guesthouse on the river. It is truly a gem. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and will help arrange tours. The pool is nice and the breakfast - which is included - is delicious! Fresh croissants and fruit and your choice of eggs and tea or coffee. It... More

It's not in the city center, but after you spend a few hours in the city center, you'll appreciate that. The backstreet location makes it QUIET, even during rush hour. The grounds have a lovely garden and the pool is great for a dip during the hottest part of the day (~12-3 pm). A bit more expensive than "rock bottom"... More

We just spend four days at The River View - and what a wonderful, little oasis it is! We paid 1,500 baht per night and that included a fabulous breakfast, so it was definitely great value. Our room was lovely with a balcony overlooking the beautiful gardens and pool. The hotel is filled with books, antiques, flowers and homey artifacts.... More
