Located a bit far from the main shopping mall area, this hotel is good in the sense that it has cordial staffs who are willing to serve. The room i got was big and clean. Toilet was neat as well. Food was indian sort and not too bad. Budget hotel for sleep and eat. One can spend the evening in the clock tower/shopping area and come to hotel for rest. There is also a bar where live music are played one day. Overall this is a good hotel for tourism in budget. One problem is, so much construction going on beside the hotel. but thats not the problem of the hotel.

Close to Thimpu River and market. Very warm welcoming staff and delicious food. If visiting Thimpu this is a good 3-star hotel but amenities provided are more than that Try go get Riverside room on top floor.

River is just for name's sake even the road going to hotel is not tar road all dust might be work is going on their. Rooms are spacious clean toilets heater big one and good . Staff have habit of forgetting .windows have small space even when closed so cold air comes inside making room cold .regarding dogs I found no dogs there. Food is non veg so we decided to go in city to have pure veg food so cannot comment on quality of food. Towels are not changed every day . Once soap given stays there till u depart. Won't stay again

Contrary to the name, the only view we had was that of construction sites. The hotel rooms are pretty clean and spacious. As everywhere else in Bhutan, the staff is very pleasant and welcoming. We ordered food to the room - food is expensive but good. We also called in the night before and had our breakfast ordered - this made things faster for us. No Airconditioning in the rooms. It is likely you would hear plenty of dogs barking through the night

It got spacious neat rooms, toilets, wifi and friendly stuff. Food is as good as any other hotes we've been in Bhutan. Only back draw is the hotel is a bit far off from the city, you'd need a ride to go to the city center. And although the hotel is situated very close to the river, you cannot actually go near the riverbanks since the river is in a city, no pathways are available to walk around the banks. Stuffs made the experience 4 stars to be honest. Oh, the hotel does not have any fan or air conditioner like most hotels of these category in Bhutan. So, beware of that when travelling in summer.

No views, rooms though big were poorly laid out. There are no other facilities. Hotel is just off the highway. Bathrooms need to be spruced up. It doesn't give a warm hotel like feeling. Seems more like an upgraded lodge.

Rooms and washrooms are absolutely great. The name riverside is a misnomer since opposite the hotel is construction site. Once you traverse the same, you will be on the edge from where you can see the river (not much of a great view). Food and beverage options are limited. Breakfast is nothing to write home about.
