Great hotel and great location
comfort, rooftop swimming pool, location
situated in the prime location, Renaissance is only 30 mins from the airport and within walking distance to many historical sites. The hotel has a rooftop swimming pool, although its a bit small, it provides great view of the river. It has a great breakfast spread!

Comfort and convenience
convenient location, comfortable room with interesting outlook
Convenient location, taxis at door and walking distance to major shopping precincts.Pleasant outlook from room over the river where there was always some activity - boats coming and going. Staff helpful and pleasant but check their advice about transport costs (see tips below).

Nice hotel but a little passed its best
Smart, clean, good location
not up to the standards of the hyatt or sheraton, but then the prices reflect that. perfectly nice, though service can be a little unprofessional.

Excellent location
location with a view of the Mekong River
A 5 star hotel - however the service was quite off hand this time particularly on our arrival - we were not treated with the respect of our last visit - took ages to be booked in with no explanation

best location, friendly staff, excellent food
river view
we stayed at the renaissance riverside hotel in ho chi minh city for 3 nights. we originally booked the 'dining package', but the terms were not clear and although i thought that we would have dinner included for all nights of our stay, the offer was only applicable for one night. the chinese restaurant "the kabin" served excellent food and the atmosphere was very elegant and peaceful. rooms were very comfortable (we had two adjoining rooms for the children) with a beautiful view of the saigon river, facing east (lovely for sunrise and moonrise). the staff were very friendly, we asked to be picked up from the airport, which is not far away, and were met by a smiling young man who gave us some useful information about the city. breakfast was great, with a wonderful selection of western and asian options, superb quality - as is always the case with marriott. the travel agency within the hotel were not able to help us when we tried to book a tour to the cu chi tunnels and the mekong delta (i suppose we had left it too late and it was a busy season). but there are plenty of other travel agencies around the corner and we managed to hire a guide and car for the tunnels (1.30 hours away), totally recommend it! the price asked by this agency was lower than the hotel agency, although i guess the guide could have been better, but he was ok.

Great service, great room, great location!
Lovely views of the Saigon River in city centre
we stayed only one night on the eve of 2013 new year, hoping to catch the fireworks display nearby next to the river. we booked a city view room (cheaper) but the receptionist was very kind and gracious enough to give us free upgrade to a corner unit river view room! the wifi is only free if you are a member of marriott club, but the great receptionist helped us to register membership for the club (free for life, no expiry) on the spot so that the wifi would be free for us. our corner unit river view room was simply superb. this hotel had been around for some time but our room looked new, modern and refurbished. we really liked the marble flooring in the bathroom, and the toiletries were superior in quality. we really enjoyed our stay here, and the hotel is within walking distance to many restaurants and shopping malls.
