Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent hotel. Nice staff and food is also good. Can be recommended for families. Especially rooms are overlooking river. The scenic beauty can be enjoyed sitting in the balcony. Restaurant offers all kinds of food.

We stayed here recently for 2 nights whilst in Thimphu. A big old hotel overlooking the river and Thimphu. It’s a bit basic but clean The staff were very friendly and helpful. It’s strange having the whole dining room to yourself but I guess it was at the end of their season

Hotel is basic but the view makes up for this. Situated on the other side of Thimphu (an easy 10 min walk from centre), the rooms are large but basic. As i was part of tour the breakfast and main meal were included, both breakfast and dinner were buffet style and were fine. Wifi was not great worked best in lobby. Overall a pleasant stay.

This hotel is not great. It does have a nice view over the river to Thimphu but that is really all it can offer. The rooms are spacious but are not comfortable or well maintained. The bathrooms are worse - old and both rooms I stayed on had the coat hook hanging by one screw - showing a lack of maintenance and proper checking. The shower in the second room was not working properly but with the boiler being physically in every bathroom at least you can guarantee hot water! The breakfast and dinner buffet is limited. Dinner particularly is bland western style food with a Chinese influence for some reason. The bar is nonexistence in reality as they only had coke or soda water as mixers and the spirits did not include rum (even though the local rum is decent). I wouldn’t be in a hurry to come back here

it's an old but well built and spacious hotel, ideally located overlooking the river. Nice well appointed rooms with spacious balconies. A spacious and neat attached bathroom with bath tub. The Hotel staff is very limited but extremely friendly. No AC/fan in rooms so afternoons in summer will be slightly stuffy. No lift in the Hotel though only 3 floors. Has a small restaurant, which may get crowded when occupancy is high.Hotel is just a 10 min walk from the main market area.

This hotel has been rightly named as riverview. It’s a hotel indeed with a great view. We were on the 3rd floor . The room had a balcony and the view was amazing. It overlooks the Thimphu river , football stadium and a part of the Thimphu city. You can also see the sitting Buddha few miles on a hilltop. The hotel is 10 -12 mins walking from the Thimphu clock tower even though not on the main city centre the short distance covers up. Food is good but can improve. Breakfast spread is not much but okay. I hear it’s one of the oldest hotels in Thimphu, but well maintained. Being an old building there are no lifts. The hotel is so nicely positioned that even you are not on the third floor the view from the entire hotel is worth it. A good family and not so expensive hotel in Thimphu. Staffs are also courteous. Me and family really enjoyed the stay and can recommend this hotel anyone coming to visit Thimphu.

This is one of the earliest hotels in Bhutan. Fairly large, probably 80-100 rooms. Large sitting area and dining area where limited selection of Bhutanese cuisine is served. Rooms are reasonably large and toilets are well maintained with hotel show facilities working well. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Repeat stay is possible.

Situated a little out of the town but still in walking distance, just a short walk along the lane and over the bridge. great place to see the school children on their way to school all in their National costume and to hear the calls of the Archers enjoying themselves on the field of play. Loved the little balcony that looked over the river and the town. All comforts catered for admirably.
