About Riverside Hotel Saigon


The beautiful architecture dating back to the French Colonial period adds to the unique charm of this budget hotel. Riverside Hotel Saigon is located in Ho Chi Minh City’s commercial district, close to the Saigon River. The hotel offers one of the city’s best views of the Saigon River. Several of the city’s tourist attractions are within a short distance of the hotel. A number of restaurants and bars are also within walking distance.

Top Notch Service For The Money !
If there is anything I can input for my review I would certainly do ! The room that I stayed for two weeks is a 32 square meters with double beds. The staff is always at your service ! very clean and lots of room for me to move around. Sometimes that I was out late at the wee hours the front desk staff is always there to greet you ! Last but not least the Continental breakfast and Vietnamese dishes are excellent especially the coffee ! After all it's worth for the money ! Thanks again and I'm looking forward for my next visit to Saigon. Binh Hoang

Saigon Riverside earned my 5 Stars !
I stayed at the Saigon Riversidehotel for two weeks beginning 5/27/2016 through 6/11/2016 and I have no doubt in awarding this hotel with a 5 Stars. Throughout my stay the staff are very courteous and friendly ! They always there to support for whatever my needs. I stayed at the 32 square meters room which gave me plenty of space ! The room is very clean, the air conditioner is very cold and the house keeping staff are absolutely wonderful ! There are no questions whatsoever in choosing The Saigon Riverside hotel as my stay on my future trips to Saigon. Binh Hoang

Good value and great breakfast makes my stay worthwhile
I was to attend a company meeting the following week so I decided to come earlier, during the weekend, and explore Saigon on my own. Some of my colleagues also decided to do the same so we looked for a hotel that is near our company-booked 5-star hotel and found Riverside Saigon. We thought it was a great value hotel that is relatively clean and comfortable and with a great breakfast spread too. It was a quaint, old building that could have been renovated to look like the nearby Grand Majestic but I guess it would have cost a lot more if that had happened. Let it stay as it is but give good value to budget travelers like us.

Arriving late at 6.00am was impressed by the attitude of the front office staff. Breakfast was great with good selection of local and Western fare. Pleasant service rendered by the service crew. Very reasonable price, really worth it. Will definitely stays there again soon. Keep up the good job.

Good location
Staff needs better customer service training. My particular room had a nice terrace over looking the river and a wet bar ! No art on the walls. Bed was very hard. Well located.

The hotel is situated by the riverside. It took me less than 30mins to reach the hotel from HCM airport at 2130pm. Check was fast and within minutes was given my room key. The room key use to power on aircondition and lights. Room was good in size and bathroom was huge with bath tub. Bed on place on a wood plank and comfy. Breakfast is served at their restaurant but selection is quite limited. Walking distance to Dong Du street and nearby to other location but probably you need transport to go to Ben Thanh market. There some other hotel around that area such as Liberty hotel (next door), Renaissance riverside, Majestic hotel.
