One of the staff members took us in to town and gave us a tour. We do not speak And this service was not required. The Ali Blah Blah cafe is next door and is a musr visit. Owned by former a Seattle native, it is quaint and delicious.

Lovely hotel overlooking the Mekhong”
Hard to find fault with the hotel really..... Lovely room with views over the Mekhong river and Laos. Nice restaurant with good food and live music. Friendly and obliging staff. Quiet and relaxing. Maybe the only improvement,I can suggest,is if they had a swimming pool.

Transport rip off, good room, bad views, noisy ”
The hotel is new so the room is good and everything works. However, being the most expensive hotel in the area - it’s surprising how everything else doesn’t. 1. Noisy - humming sound all night long. Good thing I have noise cancelling headset. 2. Shitty view - construction makes the river look ugly. Worse I forked out extra for a sky view. It’s a sky view of a shitty construction 3. Shitty location - far end of the river - far from everything else. Need transport for everything. And they overcharge - THB 100 for a tuktuk ride of 5 km - this is expensive in Thai standards. Also, I wanted to to go toHo Chi Minh Museum, and then airport. If I go straight to the airport it’s THB 100 for a Tuktuk, with a stop in the museum that’s along the way it becomes 500 with a 30 minute wait. The math doesn’t add up. They just give you a blank stare when you explain this. I walked to a nearby cafe and asked to book a taxi for the same route (mind you - new car with air con!). It’s THB 300 as compared to a THB 500 ride on a tuktuk. They thought they could take advantage of foreigners but I’m smarter than that! Shame on them!

This hotel is more than it looks on the outside. ”
Great River view in every room. Extremely clean, quiet, good bed, good air conditioning. It’s really a good place to rest. But there is no gym or pool. And getting to the city is about 4-5 km away. Breakfast is not that accommodating if you don’t eat pork. However a staff made me a personal dish since I had no options.

Big hotel + small town + river view = good rest”
The River is a very well kept hotel that has an understated exterior. Each room has the same indiscriminate angle of the Mekong River. Our friend stayed in a river view room and we in a paradise suite. We were all very satisfied with our rooms. Housekeeping was timely and thorough and very sweet (at least on the fourth floor). The staff were generally nice, capable of speaking Thai, Lao and English. But other than check in and out, we didn’t really had much contact. Breakfast offered a fresh selection of salad and fruit, with an egg station and noodles/porridge station. But if that’s not your typical breakfast, there is a nice bakery about 250meters north of the hotel.

Nice rooms, great bathrooms, Ok breakfast. But it is all about the VIEW. The rooms have huge Windows facing out over the Mekong. Watching the sunrise from bed is special. I booked for one night and stayed for three.

Second time time and just as happy with accomodation. The only issue was the service station next door has the pump radio playing 24 hours a day, with a noise level that can be heard within a 1 km radius. I am a heavy sleeper and it still woke me up. I do not know if the hotel has any chance to stop the loud noise, but that does not detract from the great stay. I will stay again.(With earplugs lol.)

Very nice hotel with an amazing room and the view to the Mekong river from your room. ”
Two suggestions for improvement: - the TV signal is bad. Nice to be able to watch TV as the location is very quiet. - service of almost all hotel staffs is not up to the standard. They are not friendly and not helpful. Overall, it’s a very nice hotel. Definitely will stay here again.

4th floor room overlooking river and mountains. Clean and spacious. Good size bed. The only issue was the 7 /11 petrol station had the radio blaring at 4 am at the bowsers. If you opened the balcony door it was very loud. But i would stay there again as it is a great motel.

This high rise hotel was situated within yards of the River Mekong. The views from my room, across the river to Laos & to the mountains beyond was second to none. My room on the 10th floor, was excellent, spotlessly clean, light, airy, modern, beautifully presented, with a modern TV & was beyond fault, it was first class. The wet room was of the same top standard, with a constant supply of hot water, & fully equipped even with a supply of quality toiletries. The room had an adequate sized balcony, which again overlooked the river. I am a frequent visitor to Thailand, & have thus been to very many hotels throughout its Kingdom, it is without doubt one of the very best I have experienced. It is almost 'too good' for the area, as my 6 day stay here was rather too long, as there is little to do in Nakhon Thanon itself, except to admire the embankment along the river in the town. The staff were helpful, plentiful & polite. The room linen & towels were changed daily, & the kingsized bed was very comfortable. My only complaint about this hotel is that of it's detached restaurant, I found it to be well below the standard of the hotel itself. It was open to the public, frequented by the 'Police' daily for freebies, The decor was non existent, like sitting in an concrete unfinished building, The staff were hopeless, could never get my order correct, if at all they gave you any attention, & the food (when you got it) was only just adequate. For the hotel I mark 10 out of 10, for the restaurant 2 out of 10.

Very popular. ”
Watch the Mekong flow by. Good size clean rooms. Helpful staff gave me a desk to do computer work each day. Restaurant is decent and breakfast is good - especially the eggs - though real coffee would be better. A pool or gym would make this perfect but I guess the rates would be higher. Only negative was the boat cruise being cancelled - perhaps because only two customers? Otherwise very pleasant stay and seems always full so book early.

Comfortable room with a great river view. Nice breakfast. Kind staffs (especially the guy in the day shift). Only one downside for us, the hotel transportation fee to downtown is a little expensive. To rent a car or motobike is the best idea to travel around. Anyway, good hotel. Recommend.

New and with a superb view”
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The River. All rooms are tastefully furnished and have a wonderful river view into the hills of Laos -- A/C took a while to cool down the room but they sent us a complimentary bucket of ice for our drinks since the fridge had been unplugged and took a while to cool things down. For 100 Baht we got a sunset riverboat tour of almost 2 hours up through town and along the Laos shoreline. We had dinner at the Riverside restaurant and had a great meal with drinks for about 1000 Baht right on the river edge with superb service. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

It was our first time to this province and this area. With the great help of staff, our trip was splendid! RECOMMENDED, book the 1 bedroom suite, it is very worth your money, huge clean room, best view you can ever get right from your bedroom. Only 2 things is that the TV doesn't have clear signal and poor wifi, but that is great as it give us time to do other stuffs.

The hotel is located right on the bank of the Mekhong River and is not too far from the city. You can sit back and relax enjoying the widest view of the river. Plus, the hotel is not expensive at all compared with the view and the service you will get. Love it to max!
