This is a hotel that has an actual temple in its grounds so that in itself is a great start. Check in was friendly and efficient. The room itself was really nice and cean with a very comfortable bed. Nice large bedroom. Breakfast is served overlooking the river with a great choice of food. Reception will order you an e bike brought to the front door of the hotel and at a good price. There is also a nice swimming pool with ample sun loungers. The only faults are that the rooms can be difficult to find with poor sign posting. The bar is overlooking the river but service can be slow. All in all a great hotel.

The River View is, as might be expected, on the mighty Irrawaddy River. Complete with its own ruined temple, the hotel is a complex comprising blocks housing around twenty rooms. The restaurant offers decent Myanmar food but its big attraction is that it's outside, overlooking the river and facing west so that every evening is a sunset spectacular. Located in Old Bagan, the hotel is within walking distance of the many temples and pagodas in the old town and ideally situated for road travel - by rented e-bike or taxi - to the wider area. Rooms are comfortable but, in our block, the bathroom was in serious need of modernisation. There is a nice swimming pool - but it woukd be even better if the bar was open.

nice pool, gardens, location by the river. rooms are big - breakfast by the river terrace is lovely. I also loved that they have their own 12thC temple within the grounds. Negatives? at least my evening meal was fairly inedible - i gave it to a cat. On the river there are a Lot of boats powered by diesel engines - these are very loud, apart from the pollution. Overall manageable though

The setting for this hotel couldn't be better. Temples in the grounds, wonderful trees and a terrace restaurant looking over the river for breakfast and sunset. However for 62 dollars we got a horrible bathroom, dirty fridge and leakey air con. Room 303 was extraordinarily over priced. Unfortunately we were told that the hotel was fully booked and no way of any movement. Shame but I wouldn't stay again as it was poor.

Great Context with a Buddha temple on the hotel grounds. Beautiful landscape. Great restaurant overlooking the River. We found the rooms very spacious. The staff were gracious and attentive. The only thing we found with the River View, and it is really not any fault of the hotel are the boats with loud Chinese engines going up and down the River. Overall, we were very happy with the Hotel
