Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi availability

Wi-Fi may prove to be an issue at the River Island Hotel. Guests mention that they had to use a code to get online but had to get another every 12 hours. Other guests found they were only able to get a Wi-Fi signal in the lobby, which proved frustrating.

Disappointing views

A small number of guests mention that they found the view from their room a little disappointing. Corrugated rooftops and uncleared rubbish could be seen.

Parking may frustrate

Several reviews suggest that you may encounter some issues trying to park while staying at this hotel. Street parking is generally available but is limited to three hours during the day. It will quickly prove frustrating having to move your car so often.
