Review of Hotel Riverview
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 27 May 2019via mobile
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.

Is a nice and modern hotel overlooking the city. My room was a good size and clean. Everything worked in the room. Had dinner in the restaurant which was pleasant and a nice selection from the dinner buffet.

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.

We only spend one night on this hotel and were satisfied.
We got served a welcome drink from a very polite staff, and the check inn was quickly and everything was good. Clean, good room and breakfast is just like breakfast is in Bhutan. Lots of Indian style.
The whole staff is very helpfull.
You are not in the town, so If you stay there for more days, so account for time for transportation.

Room tip: Room with view to the river

Stayed here for two nights in April, 2018. Hotel Riverview is situatedon the Dechhen Lam and has a picturesque location overlooking the Thimphu City with the river Thimphu Chu running just across the hotel. The main market of Thimphu is at a walking distance from the hotel across the Thimphu Chu.Another landmark the Chamlingtham Stadium is also located across the river.

The room and bathroom were quite spacious and comfortable. The hotel offers free wi-fi, multi cuisine restaurant & bar, salon & spa, laundry service and other amenities. The Indian food we had at the restaurant was quite good. The hotel also has a gift shop located in the lobby and selling T-shirts, books and other gift items. The staff are courteous and the service was good.

The best thing about the hotel is the scenic view our room offered of Thimphu city against the backdrop of the green mountains. The morning view of Thimphu City with the clouds rolling across the mountains was simply breathtaking. We could also have the heavenly sight of Buddha Dordenma amidst the clouds which was awesome.

Overall we enjoyed our stay here.
