Truly Majestic in all regards
Service was amazing, breakfast was of the highest standard, room's were spacious and clean, great rooftop bar, fantastic location- right near the meekong delta!!
we stayed for five nights in july, was truly an amazign experience. the hotel staff were attentive, and always ready to assist you even in matters not regarding the hotel (eg external tours booked). the buffet breakfast is not to be missed, the food is to die for, and the view is picturesque! i highly reccomend this hotel, the location simply tops it off!

Wonderful Hotel.
The hotel is a wonderful building in a great location. It is walking distance to the city and many of the sites. River front view great. Breakfast buffet was enjoyable. The room was clean, comfortable. and a good size for the price. Amenities were great. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel.

Interesting hotel history
location and colonial value
Overall enjoyed the stay although almost all members of staff asked for a tip. Staff need proper training. Great position but there is poterntail to improve in many areas with out destroying its historic look and feel.

Beautifully restored old hotel in prime location
Excellent staff, beautiful rooms
The hotel is about 100 years old, but has been beautifully renovated. Rooms are very good size and well appointed. The staff are excellent and all have very good english. Pool area is great and meals excellent.The roof top bar is fantastic. The hotel is in a very good location on the Saigon river, and there's plenty of good restaurants in close proximity.

Colonial charmer in need of a facelift
Oozing with character
In its heyday one of the grandest hotels in Saigon, still charming but in need of a facelift, which is very typical of many hotels in the city (The Continental, Rex, etc.). Nice location and the staff were very pleasant. Given other options in the vicinity I'd still say this is a good place to stay. Has enormous potential if it's given a revamp.

This is one of the old colonial Hotels in Saigon
They manage to preserve some of the atmosphere
i stayed at this hotel for about 5 weeks, back in 1989 when it was known as the cuu long. the riverview rate was then something like usd 25. one could share the street level cyclo bar with the river rats about the size of a cat. i miss these times, when i was a young man... but somehow they managed to keep some of the atmosphere, decoration, timber floor, balconies over the river.. so it isn't all lost, and you get 5 star service consistent 5 star service. for those who haven't know the old cyclo, the 5th floor bar is a suitable replacement.

An Excellent Hotel with Great Service and Location
Rooms are clean and nice
An excellent 5 star hotel with good view of Saigon River. Near shopping district and a lot of Japanese and fine restaurants. Taxi is easier available outside the hotel. For those who like to gamble, the hotel casino is located on 7th floor of the hotel. Spa services is also available at the hotel.
