Hotel Rivetas
Hotel Rivetas has spacious rooms with air-conditioning, modern plumbing, and refrigerators in the rooms. The shower has racks large enough to hang hand laundry. The location is excellent for access to the more quiet and upscale hotels of the cantonment area. We enjoyed dinners at the nearby Hotel Surya, which has a more traditional style dining room, while Rivetas is quite modern. The breakfasts are adequate, with the better food choices comprising Indian idli, paratha, sambhak, spicy sauces. There is a omelet chef to prepare eggs, as desired, for Westerners. The coffee is not very tasty, but the black tea is acceptable. There are tuktuk and cab drivers available lined up outside the hotel. The hotel pool is nice, large enough for laps, and the fitness room is small but has a range of machines. It closes at 7 PM. Wi Fi is NOT free; the purchased card will only allow use of one device at a time. Calling long-distance is also charged.

The hotel is ok, but the cleanliness is not. The white towels appeared brownish, we did not use them, we even asked for extra ones but they were all the same. The room also smelled something we cannot identifyThe room size was good. The neighborhood is ok compared to the ones close to the river. There are other big hotels near the Rivatas.

The staff were not helpful. They did not immediately respond to any requests like securing a taxi or recommending places to eat. I was very disappointed in overall service.

Lovely modern hotel with great restaurant
Free upgrade to suite on arrival. Quick check in, too quick that we weren't told about wifi (150 rps per unit per day) and breakfast (served 7am-10). Room great and air con was super good. Staff very friendly. Pool was ample size and is shared with hotel next door, but never too busy. Restaurant was great, good food for breakfast, lunch and tea. Can't really eat anywhere else as it's very busy on the streets and would need a tuktuk. Top tip; Hotel travel tried to get us to book on for Ganges boat trips for 9000rps for 2 for private motor boat day/night tour but we got a tuktuk into town and got the same thing for 4000rps from locals including tuktuk to giant Buddha/buddha gardens (plus 1000rps for tipping the local guide who 'didn't want any money' but turned out he actually did in the end). Probably could have got it cheaper if we'd tried.
