That Phanom River View Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in That Phanom
Reviewed 9 August 2013

Don’t make the same mistake we made and mix up this hotel with the Nakhom Phanom Riverview Hotel (NPRVH).
The NPRVH is seedy but welcoming with very helpful staff in an interesting town but the That Phanom Riverview Hotel (TPRVH) is a hick-run motel in a one horse town and the horse has died.
The hotel is a new build but unwelcoming with few facilities both in the room and in the hotel in general. The views of the Mekong are across the car park and a road and it is run by an unhelpful petty bureaucrat who has decorated reception with photos of himself with a tired out old Thai general. Not our sort of place at all.
Everyone is in bed here by 8pm and there are only Thai TV stations available on the hotel TV. WiFi access is also poor and the beds are too hard!
All in all not one we could recommend to our worst enemy. Stay somewhere else!

Room Tip: Don't bother - find another town to stay in

Dear Omod,
First of all, we sincerely apologize that you did not satisfy with our hotel. Please give Thatphanom Riverview Hotel a second chance. Please let us explain by starting with the locations between Thatphanom Riverview Hotel and Nakhon Phanom Riverview Hotel. Thatphanom Riverview hotel is situated in a serene quiet little town called That Phanom while Nakhon Phanom Riververview Hotel is situated in the main city of Nakhon Phanom province. So, the city clearly has more activities to participate in than the town does. That Phanom town is famous for Buddhist temples. There is one of Thailand's most respected temple called Phra That Phanom Temple. The town is very quiet and religious therefore it is considered "a religious town".
Thatphanom Riverview Hotel is releatively new and we are constantly upgrading and renovating to attract and satisfy our guests. Our hotel is more like a mom and pop business, we are not bureaucrats. Hanging the picture of the owners and the Police Lieutenant General at the opening day behind our Front desk is the way of respecting seniority in Thailand. We have no intention whatsoever in displaying our influence or power. It' is just a simple of respecting in Thailand.
As we said earlier, we constantly upgrading to stay the best hotel in the town of That Phanom, we are currently offering international TV channels and better and faster wifi access.
All in all, That Phanom town is black and white compared to Nakhon Phanom city. If you are looking for a serene and quiet town where you can ride a bike along the Mekong River in the late afternoon and sipping beer and enjoying local fish meals along the river, That Phanom is a place for you

What a really good find.Its location on the Riverside,spotlessly clean,large rooms with all mod-cons and truly exceptional value.The rooms had River-views,(we were on the 3rd floor),and also had a balcony.There is free Wi-Fi in the lobby area and an adequate coffee shop serving a simple ABF.There are also free bikes available.Plenty of Riverside Restaurants nearby with stunning views of the Mehkong River.We were there for 2 nights and will certainly go back.The Staff do have limited English,but were friendly and helpful and made for a nice stay.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 3rd floor,facing the river.However there are NO lifts if you have mobility problems.All...

Stayed for two nights just to get out of the heat of our current accomodations. Needed air conditiioning which was great here. Nice shower. Few things like paying for ice, no locals calls from room, nobody speaks English. Very frustrating to request anything at front desk or restaurant. Food kinda pricey. Did not like how waiter in restaurant hung around for tip. No thank you for it. The room was great but not thrilled with staff other than the cleaning staff. Not many restaurants in the area open, but did not check after 5:00 p.m. So had no choice but to eat at hotel restaurant. Would come back again strictly to sleep in a nice cool room.

Room Tip: All the rooms seem good. You do not have an awesome view of Mekong. In fact youcan hardly see it.
