“Decent hotel and location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Stayed here 8 days in october. STRONGLY RECOMMENDED to try to get the riverside rooms, otherwise your room's window will open up to an interior wall 3 feet away. The third and fourth floors are a university dormitory, only the second floor has rooms available.
Rooms are small and dated but aircon is good, cr is clean, and tv has great reception. Lots of nice buffets nearby, del piatto, sarabia manor, and a few filipino buffets on ma clara st.
Too far to walk to smallville, but close enough to walk to sm or robinsons. Free parking downstairs, and a fast internet cafe with 24 inch monitors downstairs too.

Stayed October 2012, traveled as a couple

Riverside Inn boasts a convenient location with modern amenities in every guestroom and very good service. Amenities available within the building at this Iloilo accommodation consist of room service, shops, coffee shop, internet cafe, restaurants, etc..Riverside Inn rooms are equipped with a cable flatscreen TV, telephone and private bathroom, Riverside Inn is very near SM Iloilo, Smallville and Boardwalk, where you can go on a walk even at night. The rooms are relatively spacious and the beds are bigger than the ordinary single beds. The location is very strategic, you can go anywhere from the hotel since almost all jeepney routes pass in front of this hotel.

Very accommodating and friendly staff special mention to Mr Joel, thank you. .

the only downside is that there is no free wifi available.

If ever you'd be travelling to Iloilo I would highly recommend this inn.
First the staff. The hotel staff including the guards are really friendly. Coming from a long travel, the hospitality of the staff is a great warmer. They are very approachable, professional and good to note, for a small hotel, they are adequately staffed. Comparable to large 5 star hotel the only difference is the personalized service, not the automated smiles of those large hotel staff.

The rooms. The room i got was a single room. Though single, the room was spacious, clean and it smelled nice. The comfort room was also very clean, with good towels, toiletries and surprisingly hot water. Though you have to let the water run for a couple of minutes to have the hot water running, bur nevertheless it is something i never expected for such a price. They gave me a riverside view which was great. I had a picturesque view of the river and the bridge.

The location. Its a 15 minute ride to sm city.
Smallville is also near. The ferry terminals are 15 minutes away by taxi...so location was great.

Services. The inn does not have an inhouse restaurant, but there are available food choices on the same building. Mang inasal is just right on the entrance, as well as a korean restaurant.

Good to note is a small cafe at the hotel entrance, that provides basic breakfast and caffeine needs for a very affordable price.

All in all, the experience with this inn was great...highly recommended...

if you're looking for a budget room just for an overnight sleep, this is your bet. it has clean bathrooms, hot and cold shower, not free wi-fi, good aircon and clean beds for a very affordable price. the only thing i hate is their pillows, it is just a rectangular piece of flat foam and does not provide good support even i stacked 2 and 3 pillows together, still i did not had a good sleep.

It's definitely a good place to overnight. For 600 pesos the - pretty big - room was really clean, with hot shower, towel, soap, TV (and cable), great bed...Iloilo city does not have great interest so it's better to have a good place to stay and relax.

Only one bad point for those who want wifi : it is not included and the price is 150 pesos (!!) for 24 hours.

After a long journey from visiting some of the islands north of Iloilo, we were happy with the service that the staff provided us upon arrival. They were nice and informative, the only downside to it is that we have to carry our own bags to our room using the stairs, but, a kind employee offered to help us when we met him at the second floor and guided us to where our room is. The room is decent, clean and very quiet (which I love love love). And, to my surprise (considering how cheap the room is) toiletries and towels were provided already. They have hot and cold shower and you can also request for hot drinking water if you want to have coffee or tea. The inn is located right along General Luna Street which is a good location since most of the jeepneys going to Molo or City proper passes through here. There is also a Mang Inasal (a famous restaurant) located right outside the main lobby. Atms/banks are 10 to 20 minute walk from the inn. Definitely good value for money.

A nice hotel situated 5-10 minutes drive from SM shopping mall. I stayed in a single room which was nice, clean and pretty spacious for the class of the hotel. A comfy bed with an actual blanket not just a sheet. The en-suite bathroom with hot water was a pleasant surprise.
For the first time in the country I was asked to present an ID and a card I payed the room with, wich means responsible staff. The receptionist also gave me clear directions how to get where I needed to. When I had a request about the availability of a medicine for sale(I had a toothache), the answer came in 2 minutes which is really quick.
