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.

The River Inn was selected for one night after the price of their sister hotel (River Kwai Hotel) was increased. We paid 800 baht here and could quickly recognize the lower quality of this place compared to the River Kwai which the standard was just average. I would rate it a 2.5 but since .5 is not an option - 2.0 poor rating was selected. We only needed the room from about 10pm and left at 7am to go to the Floating Market so for a short time, this room was fine. In the room, everything worked (AC, Wifi, TV, etc.). River Inn is in walking distance to the bus station so for this reason it was selected. It is also next to a restaurant/bar and karaoke place where noise can be an issue if you are a light sleeper and overall, the room was just outdated especially the bathroom. The bed linen was a little used so we opted for our sleeping bags on top of the beds so we were able to sleep well. We would search for another guest house before selecting this place again.

Hotel locate far from bus station, market, stores, any attractions except World War 2 cemetery.
I think the thais from rural areas stay at this hotel. After check-in they walk along hotel corridor and loud discuss something with each other till midnight and the same situation begin at 5 a.m., all doors to their rooms are open, they shout something from one end of corridor to another end to their friends, giggle and etc.
If you want not have a rest at all and ready to sleep only 4 hours welcome to River Inn hotel. The only good point is availability of the pool in neighbor hotel and you can visit it free of charge.

My reservation was prepared by friendly, very polite front desk staff. I was checked in in a matter of minutes. First floor room next to the stairs. The room was clean & fresh. Had AC, fridge & bottled water. The bathroom was outdated & shower-head needed to be fixed. No mirror or shelves. Two clean towels though.
I didn't even notice they had a pool.
The location is great, within walking distance to many restaurants, bars, shopping & the famous war cemetery. Easy to navigate to the "bridge".
I'd stay again. It's a budget hotel, I'm not expecting the Waldorf!

Let's start with safety fire escape on the third floor is pad locked shut and no key is present to get out. The stairs are eroded and dangerous.

In our room water was dripping from above, wiring was exposed and drains leaked.

Rooms were only cleaned if you went and demanded it to be done. Staff don't care. Water from the showers were cold.

This hotel is an annex to the river Kwaii hotel and has seem better days. Upon arrival we were demanded to pay cash. All facilities are shared with its parent hotel.

Only stay here if you have a death wish.

We booked in person two days before we were to stay. When we arrived with our luggage, we were advised the Hotel was full. After some discussion they found the booking, and suddenly there was a room available. We took up residence. On the first night we discovered there was no hot water in the bathroom and then the toilet overflowed onto the floor. We demanded another room and after some discussion we were given another room, there was no hot water in that room either. During this time all the rooms were open and there was not one other room booked. We found out why. The rooms fill up at night. The place operates in concert with a large building at the rear called 'River Paradise'. The young girls make so much noise all night, coming and going it is hard to get any sleep.
The reception are deliberately difficult to deal with and will in fact tell outright lies. We asked for a price of a minibus to bangkok, she rang someone and said 500 baht per person. Three days later we asked her to book that minibus and she advised the price had gone up to 1400 baht per person. It was pointless discussing ot with her as she just stares at you and says, 'don't understand' The TV is unwatchable, all in all it is a dive of a hotel. Do not stay there or stay at your own peril. Comparatively it wasn't that cheap at 600 baht. No WiFi, No pool, No hot water, No TV. No restaurant. No good.

The River Inn is not a 2 star hotel.
It's disgusting and loud. We actually can hear people talk in the street while we are is the room. (Welcome bad sleep)

Just don't come here and find another guest house to enjoy your stay!

Stayed here for 1 month when visiting relatives.Found rooms newly refurbished,comfortable and clean.Corridors need decorating but maybe that was to be done.Our room was quiet 1st floor near road (2nd floor to Thais).Maybe other rooms get noise from Disco nearby so check position.We were able to use pool of River Kwai Inn ,in fact all their facilities.
7/11 just across road plus a couple of bars. 30 min walk to bridge.Plenty transport around hotel.
Will definitely use again .
