We stayed here for 5 nights in August. It is a quiet place away from the hustle and bustle of Chiang Mai but still walkable to most places.
We had a room with a balcony overlooking the garden and pool area. Although the River View Lodge is a bit tired in some places it has a very homey atmosphere with something interesting to look at everywhere you turn.
Our room was basic and comfortable with a fridge.
The staff were friendly and very helpful, booking tours for us on a few occasions.
We caught the night train from Bangkok to Chaing Mai and when we arrived at the River View Lodge our room was available to us straight away. We were very thankful for this. We also left our luggage there when we went on a 3 day trek. And almost left our backpack there when we left...lucky for the quick action of the staff that alerted us to this just before we drove off.
Breakfast was included and was enjoyable in a lovely garden setting.
Overall I would definitely recommend the River View Lodge. You can see past the tiredness of the place due to its charm and what it has to offer and being on the river.More
