Hotel with great view.

Review of Hotel Riverview
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 June 2019
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.

Great place.
Rooms are comfortable with great view on the city.
The traditions are respected and silence and respect are all around the place.
The restaurant will offer you traditional Bhutan food.

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
