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.

A pleasant hotel wit has good service.
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.
