First things first, the staff at Hotel River Side were really willing to help and arranged various jungle activities for me which all went smoothly. But the hotel conditions were just inadequate in my opinion. I paid for a "deluxe" room -- but the wifi didn't reach there, and the AC unit was very weak. The power outages in Sauraha... More

This mid-range hotel has the perfect location with the grounds backing onto the Rapti River which forms the boundary of the Chitwan National Park. From the restaurant and from some of the balconies on the higher floors it's possible to see rhino, deer, elephants and other wildlife in the park. The rooms vary from new to old. My room on...

I was at this hotel just before few weeks of the massive earthquake in Nepal.During my two months of stay in Nepal, I had not found any better HOTEL other than River Side. All your expectations coming true. All surprises are waiting for you. Just tell Manish what you wish to do, he arranges everything. A very friendly environment!!
