Search here or the Royal River, as I know there have been comments on it (as I remember, the comments were not favorable).

By the way, I am a bit suspicious of shrubs. He has LOTS of posts, but every one is touting one website or another.

we have stayed at the royal river twice as part of northwest airline packages....

its ok but not great...our last stay was in 2006..

while directly on the river that is where its ambience ends...

the hotel is older....the breakfast is unedible imo...

we had tons of transportation issues from there....they have a shuttle down the river at very bad times---like 10 AM and 4PM...period thats all...

there is a nearby pier for public boats....

taxis are a bit hard to come by and heading into the city often encounter huge traffic jams...

we would not stay there again....the first time they had hourly shuttle boats but that has now ended...

the only decent rooms are those directly on the river....the others are not pleasant...

it is clean however...

its a case of you get what you pay for....

i would consider it a low budget tour hotel for bus tours...

haha - I was trying to be polite, but it does look pretty run-down. It does seem like a tour group/package kind of place. But the prices are really good.
