Positive Reviews

Charming staff makes you feel welcome

Guests love the service at Riva Surya. Many reviewers praised the staff for going beyond what they needed to do at their jobs and being so helpful. Repeat visitors cite the service for why they keep returning.

Beautiful outdoor amenities

Guests enjoyed the amenities including the swimming pool and the outdoor deck that overlooks the river. They said the hotel had a great, relaxing ambiance and provided a great, tranquil place to watch the sunset.

Great soundproofing

Although the riverside rooms could get a lot of traffic noise, they didn't because of the double doors. Guests said that the soundproofing feature was very thoughtful and that they slept well because of the lack of road noise.

Negative Reviews

Too expensive

While a vast majority of guests commended the hotel, a few of them lamented that the hotel charged too much for what they thought it was worth. Also, some were disappointed that breakfast was not included in the hotel price.

Rattling noises from the air condition

For some people whose rooms were underneath the air conditioning units, they said they rattled throughout the night and disrupted them from getting a good night's sleep. Several guests mentioned this issue and the problem could be stemming from a particular set of rooms.

Hotel doesn't use taxis that have meters

Guests said that the taxi company that the hotel relies on does not turn the metre on, meaning that they could be getting ripped off. Reviewers wondered why the hotel used the taxi company that could be overcharging its customers.
