The River View Hotel is located at the Havelock Road hotel district, by the scenic and historical Singapore River where Sir Stamford Raffles first landed in 1819.
Even before Sir Stamford Raffles stepped ashore in 1819, local fishermen had tramped the banks and plied the waters of the Singapore River. As the Nation developed, the River witnessed the transformation of the island into high-tech modernity.
Today, the River View Hotel, the only hotel on the banks of the Singapore River, captures the historic mood of the 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.
