Superb. Fantastic stay!”

Superb Bell-boy service, nice room, good breakfast

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Riverview. When we read the reviews on Agoda about the fantastic bell boy services, we were wondering how fantastic it really was. Only when we arrived at the hotel, we knew how really fantastic they were! When we arrived at the hotel front door on a cab, the bell boys were already helping us to unload our luggages from the car boot even before we had stepped out of our cab! As we reached the hotel early before the check in time, the bell boys helped us to arrange the luggages for safe keeping so that we could go shoppping and checked in with our luggages at a later time. The bell boy services was also fantastic when we checked out of the hotel. All in all, we did not have to lift our finger on our luggages from the moment we reached the hotel to leaving the hotel for the airport. The bell boy even helped to arrange for airport transfer! We were very glad to have these services from the hotel as my friends and I had about 3 luggages each when we reached taipei from other parts of taiwan. Besides the superb bell boy services, room was spacious and clean and internet speed was fast. Breakfast was quite good as there were varieties of food & drinks. Location is not bad, although it is about 7-10 mins walk to ximending shopping area. All in all, the hotel stay is fantastic!

Friendly and helpful staff, def value for money!”

Very friendly and helpful staff, clean and large bedrooms, very affordable for the cleanliness and level of service provided.

This was our first time staying in Hotel Riverview and we had a most fabulous time in Taipei thanks to the dedicated services of the staff. With especial compliments to the bellboy, we were given recommendations and directions every morning before we headed out and everyone was more than happy to greet us, serve us and give directions/recommendations. We requested for a high floor and that was acceded to upon check-in. Also, even though we paid for a smaller taxi for our airport shuttle, we were upgraded to a large cab as the staff very thoughtfully supposed that a family of 4 might have alot of luggage (which we did not in the end), but it was a very kind gesture on their part. The room was spacious and clean with a small section as sitting room. It was a lovely experience and we definitely recommend anyone who is looking at a hotel in ximending to check this out! to get to the centre of ximending, one would need to walk about 15minutes. However, this was not an issue for us as the route was direct and not confusing, also this meant we had a quieter environment around our hotel.

Location, room and buffet breakfast

Although the hotel is not located immediate at the Ximending shopping area, but it is still easily accessible by 10 minute to the Ximending and MRT station. On the way to Ximending area, there are a lot of shops, restaurants and convenient store like 7 eleven and family mart. Overall, our stay in this hotel and area is enjoyable and will stay in this hotel again during next trip to taipei.

A very good quality hotel”

The hotel meets every perspective of good quality hotel. The doormen are very nice and helpful. The only minor inconvenience is the hotel is located at the very end of shopping street where you have to walk for 10-15 minutes to the hotel, however, the hotel offers a shuttle bus between the hotel and mrt Ximending station. Overall, I was very happy during my stay and will stay at this place again if I have a chance to go to Taipei.

Good Location, Inexpensive ”

English Speaking

location is good depending on where you want to go to in taipei; it's walking distance to the ximending shopping area; it's near chang kai shek memorial and the lungshan temple and night market. but it is in the old part of taipei; it is far from taipei 101. from the hotel you can walk to the mrt; it's also just one transfer to get to the national palace museum; the front desk personnel can speak english and their money exchange is open 24 hours which is very useful since we arrived after midnight with no ntd to pay for the taxi. bonus is the daily newspaper they give you.

staff performance, location, environment

The over all stay with the hotel is good. Good location which is near Ximending, only few mins walk. This is our first time visited Taiwan with 7 family members and we booked 3 rooms. When we first arrived the hotel, they gave us the rooms in their old building which we didn't like, so we changed the rooms to their new building with acceptable price changed. The rooms in their new building is clean and comfortable which we all like it. Their staffs are really nice and friendly.

The breakfast buffet is okay. Lots of food but, taste of some food may still be improved. Additional protein food may still be added to the main course. The staffs are friendly and accommodating in the concierge counter. The staffs who welcome guests at the door are accommodating and friendly also. Over-all, Hotel Riverview is very clean, has positive vibes and may be recommended to other people.

We are not that fussy and we do appricate the good standard of cleanliness through out our 5 night stay. We like the hotel room with bathtub, windows and sound proof wall.

It is our ideal hotel which meets our needs. We are comfortable with the 5 nights stay at Hotel Riverview, it is peaceful and safe. We also enjoy the stroll (about 600m plus) between the Hotel and Ximen MRT station along Emei street and Chengdu road as both are surrounded with many retail, recreation and food shops...

we were able to get this great hotel at last minute with a fair price. the hotel staffs were quite nice and considerate. everything is nice and clean. oh, forget to mention about the tour group -- if you are hunting for some quiet stay. try not to stay on the same floor as the young teens. they party very late and were very loud late at night. the next door neighbor were laughing and ringing door bells after 1:30 am. hotel provided us with nice brochure just over ximending in great details and routes. we even found some good eats according to the guide.

Good hotel a bit off the beaten path in Ximending!”

Fair warning: the hotel is about 10 min walk from Ximending station (20min if you’re hauling luggage). That said, they do have a shuttle service that runs every half hour, which was amazing when we discovered it on the last day and had tons of luggage to drag around. Room was clean and spacious, as was the bathroom. According to my traveling partner, it was a little noisy in the morning (the doors aren’t soundproof, so you can hear people talking and walking by outside in the wee hours of the morning), but I brought earplugs so I was blissfully unaware. Gym was decently equipped with a treadmill, elliptical, stationary bike, weights, and yoga mat. The elliptical and bike were out of order when we were there, though.

Could have more variety for breakfast and breakfast should be open until later. It finished at 9 or 9.30 but should be open till at least 10.30 I think

I stayed at this hotel for four days during new years eve. The rooms were very clean. The hotel was very conveniently located. It was about a 10 minute walk to Ximen MRT Station. The best part about this hotel is that it was not located in the busy part of Ximending which made it very quiet. I would definitely stay in this hotel again the next time I come to Taipei. It made our stay very comfortable.

Near Xi Meng Ting”

Having stayed at the New Riverside Suites for 4 nights and 1 night at this old wing, Hotel Riverview is extremely rundown. The mattresses are so worn out and thin and all furnishings are very old. Understandably,since the price difference between both are big. However breakfast for both wings are at the same restaurant with a fantastic view. If you will be staying in Taipei for many days and out of the hotel most of the time, you may just want to stay here to enjoy the savings since the location is the same. During the 10 mins stroll to Xi Meng Ting , you will be able to encounter many convenience stores so food will not be an issue.

Quality hotel ”

We stayed here for 2 nights last May 18-20, 2018. We spent 6600 php for 2 nights for a 3-star hotel. We loved the facilities and the room. The bathroom has an automatic toilet. Very modern and high-tech. What we didn't like was that there's no water refilling station. :( They'll only give you two bottled water in your room, together with some tea, coffee, and toiletries. The buffet breakfast is superb and the view is nice. It feels so luxurious dining in their banquet hall. Location is a little bit far from MTR station. Staff are friend and polite. We were allowed to left our luggage at the lobby even if we had already checked out. They also provide free shuttle (car) ride to Ximending station but you have to wait 15-30 mins interval.
