Hotel Introduction
facadefacade

On the banks of the Historical Singapore River, near Chinatown and only minutes' away from the Central Business District and Orchard Road Shopping Area, 10 minutes' drive to World Trade Centre & Suntec City, 20 minutes' drive to Changi International Airport. Complimentary shuttle service to Chinatown, Orchard Road and Suntec City is available. All rooms are newly-renovated.

Today, the River View Hotel, the only hotel on the banks of the Singapore River, captures the historic mood of the island nation right at its source.Today, life on the Singapore River begins at the River View Hotel.

From the tranquillity of the patio or the grassy bank, guests can relax by the river as it quietly glides between the rich cultural history of Singapore's past - a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the present city of Singapore. As the twilight fades over the godowns on the opposite bank, the birds call good evening and the lights begin to twinkle.

Lobby

The exterior - A bit dated it is typical of a modern hotel structure from the 80's, large glass windows and tower block design.

Large and bright lobby, a Jade Chinese Junk sculpture sit on one side of the lobby. The lobby lounge is next to the reception and it could be use as waiting lounge for group check in.

The hotel is a little off the beaten path for fit tourist being upriver from the night scene at boat and Clarke Quay, however, they are a very decent hotel for groups and fit clients who want to be close to the hustle and bustle but not within it. Hotel provides complimentary shuttle service to Orchard Road and Chinatown.
