Our room was very big, with one bed 120 cm and the other 160cm, beautiful view from 3.rd floor to river. Traffic noise was quite loud, even during night. Beds and pillows were comfy. There is no blind curtains, light sleeper will wake up with sunrise. Room was very clean, french colonial design. Friendly and helpful staff, and they speak... More

Large rooms, nice lobby, good breakfest, clean but spartan bathroom, but the windows to the river are old and not isolating the room from the heavy noise on the street. If noise is no issue for you, it is o.k. If not, better change to Renaissance Riverside Hotel or similar.

Showing its age but good location and very friendly staff. Stayed on the 3rd floor, which was in the middle of renovation but was not too much of a problem. Room was large but bathroom is in serious need of updating. Strangely, was not able to have an iron in my room on 'safety grounds'! Having made it to 43... More

My stay in this hotel has been better and better every time. The staff is cooperative. Nice clean and well maintained. Net is also of good speed without much hick ups. You can surely use it for your phone as well.

On arrival, first impression of the hotel was that it is very out dated and musty smelling.Senior suite on 3rd floor nice and spacious but bathroom needs maintenance and updating. Dining room in need of face lift. Except for the yoghurt and omelette, the rest of the food was not nice. Appeared to be left overs from dinner. Staff very... More

Stayed with friends in July not expecting much as we only payed $50 but just needed a night before heading of for 3 days on the Mekong but we were pleasantly surprised, large clean comfortable rooms, great service so we didn't hesitate to stay a night on our return from the Mekong. We didn't have any problems with the noise... More

Located at the vicinity of the Mekong river, a stone's throw away to retail spots and walking distance to international bank ATMs, you will find an aging 3 stars Riverside Hotel. It was easy to spot this hotel as it is one of the few hotels with outdated design. I've stayed for 4 nights on a business capacity. The check-in... More

This hotel is in a good location and very close to main shopping areas. We booked it knowing that it wasnt going to be luxurious. Rooms are clean. Bathroom is clean but toilet is noisy. We got two single beds instead of a double and they are VERY HARD beds. We were meant to have a kettle and tea in... More
