    Disappointing and overpriced Location is great! Beautiful view of the mountain and centrally located. Bungalow was nice, if you like simple and rustic like me but I was definitely missing some basics a hotel should have, like a fridge, glasses and basic toiletries. Pool had no water and was closed the whole 3 days I was there, which was a huge bummer and downfall since it was really hot. Breakfast was terrible and you are better of not booking it. Staff not very friendly. So much potential but poorly managed.

    Not as good as it seemedDirectly by the river, old bungalows and new rooms. Great views. Morning and evening dozens of motorized canoes drive up and down the river and make a hell of a noise. Cleaner was grumpy when I asked her to put a clean duvet cover on, she almost couldn't find one so it doesn't seem to be a standard procedure to put a fresh one on. Darkest bathroom ever as it has black tiles, no window and only one ceiling light. Pool was only half full and not cleaned well.

    spot on locationI don't think you can ask for a better location for a river front hotel. This place has their own private floating restaurant which you can enjoy your breakfast with spectacular view plus watching sunset during dinner time. The owner and staffs are very friendly and helpful. We wanted to go on a long tail boat cruise and we organised everything for us, plus they made us breakfast box because we had early check out. The only down side is you don't have wifi in your bungalow, you can only access within the restaurant and reception area.

    The place is very nice, stand by the Song River. I really appreciate the view in front of the Bangalow. The staff is kind and generosity. Right now there is an extension construction so, it might ruin the view. But it is still OK for me.

    Always stay at Riverview”

    This was our 4th time staying at River View Bungalows. I always enjoy staying here because the bungalows we get are right on the river and look out at the mountains. The bars can be noisy if you stay on the river but I sleep through it fine. Service has gone down a little bit since the town has grown over the past 4 years but you can get clean towels and whatever else you might need if you are kind to the personnel at the front.

    Nice room, bad experience ”

    We stayed in the new building which has a great balcony, nice bathroom and nice bed. Unfortunately service was horrible, no changing of bedding, no cleaning bathroom during our 1 week stay. Tv not working, internet extremely slow or not working. Breakfast which we paid extra for was every day the same and consisted of a roll and 2 eggs. In the morning and late afternoons the river is co starkly used by motorized canoes whom are very loud. In the evening the restaurant across the river blast music extremely loud. Very annoying. Unfortunately it made for a negative experience.

    nice room, many obstacles ”

    we stayed in the new building which has great rooms, beautiful bathroom, nice bed, nice balcony overlooking the river. no refrigerator in the room. Now the unfortunate shortcomings. You have to ask tto get your room. leaned and then they will make your bed, no fresh sheets, replace the towels and do a 1 no Ute sweep. They never cleaned the bathroom even thou we asked. Across the river is a restaurant that plays extremely loud music, you also have in the early morni g and later afternoon ton of motorized canoes zooming by constantly so much for enjoying the nature. this of course is not the owners fault but still is a nucance. we decided to pay extra for the breakfast which was definitely not worth it. every day the same, 2 eggs, a half hot dog, a thin slice of ham and a piece of bread. I recommend looking elsewhere unless you just stay for a couple of nights, don't include the breakfast and are here to party.
