Solid midrange option
Riverside tries to be a city hotel, with hotel-type amenities included with the rooms like free breakfast, free cheap toiletries, safety box, TV and fridge.
The big, clean rooms have tile floor, plain decor and hot water bathrooms that boast shower cubicles. This place is big and rather soulless but the English-speaking reception staff are very eager to negotiate rates for walk-ins –- try for at least US$10 off the posted rate. Riverside Palace Hotel is mere steps to Fa Ngum Road and the Mekong. The rooms with windows on the fourth and fifth floor have a clear view over the rooftops. Free WiFi is available in the lobby.
