5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

We - my husband and I - arrived mid morning from the cruisecenter. We were received with open arms and big smiles. We were not supposed to check in before 2 pm - but our room on the 20th floor with river view was all ready and we could go straight up. And because we would have to leave very late or very early - depends on how you look at it - on our last day and would miss breakfast, we were offered breakfast on arrival.
The hotel is plased close to public transport - bus and Water taxi. We just loved it. And Singapore is a beautiful place and we will return one day for the 3rd time and we will stay at Riverview Hotel Again.

Room Tip: Pay the extra Money and upgrade to executive Club it is well worth the Money.

I was impressed by the concierge staff - I left my jacket in the taxi and they got it back in about an hour by phoning the taxi company and tracking the driver. Very nice service.

The rooms are a lot bigger than I expected after experiencing the Fragrance brand last time, those hotels are cheaper but junk. You will also notice with them a lot of 1 review wonders - obviously fake. This Riverview Hotel is better by far. I got this for Sing$150 for an overnight stay on the internet. The quality of the room is about Novotel standard.

Location down by the river and jut by Copthorne which I have stayed in before but i about double the price.

Room was good and bed very comfortable. Shower adequate. Has a bathtub

Room Tip: River view room has good view but can be noisy at 1am when there is a local tourist attraction

This hotel is located right on the Singapore River, close to restaurants and a short walk from Clarke Quay. The hotel is a very good value for the money with rooms about half the price of the Grand Copthorne Waterfront next door. The lunch buffet is absolutely fantastic, with such a variety of great tasting Malay, Chinese, Indonesia, and Indian foods as to be almost overwhelming. The room was adequate except that the rug was torn in between the two beds and the bathtub was noticeably scuffed and marked, giving the room on the whole a less-than-clean look. With a little attention to renovations, this hotel would get a much higher rating.

I stayed on transit with my wife, blown away by their food quality. I am an Indian and love to cook and a food connoisseur. Their breakfast buffet was second to none. I strongly recommend this hotel for anyone.

Enjoyed our stay at the Riverview. Rooms were clean and staff were very helpful. Free shuttle available to Orchard Road. Plenty of fine restaurants located nearby on the riverbank if you wish to eat out.

Had a good stay and really enjoyed the views from both our room and the 5th floor pool.

Singapore is certainly not the cheapest City in the World to stay, so this represented a good balance between price & quality. Everything was in the room that you would expect including wifi, safe, kettle, fridge, toiletries etc.

Agree that it’s not close to the MRT, but a 10-minute walk to Chinatown will find you at the nearest MRT station. Taxis are metered and plentiful and there is a petrol (gas) station close by for drinks and snacks.

Our flight did not leave until the evening, so after checking out and leaving our luggage with the concierge the hotel kindly gave us access to the pool area whereby there were showers and toilets.

I booked because the price was right and would do so again.
