4am Roosters and swarms of mosquitoes ”
This place may look idyllic in the photos and the rooms have reasonable (Instagram) charm, however the river view rooms can barely see the river. You can if you squint through the massive trees in the way. The building works next door (this is Vietnam after all: the sound of an angle grinder is never far away) is courteous enough to start several hours after the roosters who seem to be competing for some kind of poultry town crier championship from 4am till 7am daily. Nice one lads. It's rainy season so there's rain, of course. However, the photos fail to show the corrugated fibreglass roofing that amplifies the sound of the rain to such a level everything including thought is irradiated. The young crowd are in on weekends to get riverside sunsets which is nice. Although I suspect they are there because they must be immune to malaria, dengue and encephalitis due to constant swarm of mosquitoes in and around the property. I left two days early - the (st)owner could not care less.

A great place with retro decoration for relaxing. Spacious room with open air bathroom, a private garden corner. Restaurant area by the river is fantastic. There’re few bycicles available for free. It’s about 5 mins cycling to crowded area.

Lots to improve.... ”
The female receptionist was very nice and showed a great hospitality during my stay. Great view of the river too. But the shower was disappointing: the water was very weak and I could hardly called it "proper". The hotel's located at the very end of the street with a construction site next to it - quite a few stray dogs hang out nearby and it's not the best road to walk during the day and night. It's very quiet too. The gate closes pretty early and in one occasion at the evening - I had to knock on the gate a few times to wake up the guard to open the door for me. Not returning for sure - but I do appreciate what the young female receptionist has done to make me feel home.

Be careful of small tiled steps that lead up into the bathroom in room 2. I fell very heavily because the steps are narrow, tiled and my feet were damp from having a shower. Not sure why the steps are there at all.

The River Cottage is a really beautiful place located in District 2. Although you need to catch a cab into the centre of town, it’s easier and cheap (only 3 miles). The neighbour in which the River Cottage is located is my favourite in Saigon. It has the best restaurants and bars and feels very relaxed compared to the craziness of district 1. I would definitely stay here again when I come back to Saigon. Can’t recommend it enough!

Good choice of riverside stay.”
Overall, I like this place especially its Indochina theme. The room interior was impressive with old collected items and I feel like I was at some countryside place back to the old time. It was also very clean, neat and cosy. The bed was extremely comfy I could feel the good quality of the bedding set. The staff was nice and helpful. The deck cafe was beautiful but it was hot during mid day. However, the garden was smaller than I expected and I could not have a walk around. I also wish to have more services such as pool, spa, massage because if you are going to stay there all day it gonna be quite boring.

Cool relaxing hotel”
We spent 2 nights in this hotel. The room was spacious and clean with rustic furniture. We had a nice balcony. The bathroom was clean but needs some updating. We didn't like the flooring and the appliance of the shower. The shower switched between very hot water and cold water all the time. The staff was very nice and helpful! The breakfast was really good. The hotel is directly next to the river unfortunately when the river goes up a lot of garbage gets stuck in the plants of the hotel, so it looks a little bit untidy. The hotel is located in district 2 it is a really modern district with a lot of art, nice Cafés and restaurants with really good quality. You can rent bikes for free and discover the area on your own. We would come back.

Thank you so much for taking the time to give us a review. As we are always trying to improve, we appreciate your feedback. We were happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay even though you experienced a few shortcomings during your visit. We've actually just upgraded the shower system and the water controls. Should you decide to visit us again, the hot water is now easier to control. I'm terribly sorry about the litter in the river during your stay. Unfortunately on some occasions, after a particularly a heavy rain or an unusually high tide we do experience a bit of litter in the river. When that does happen, we do our best to clean anything that washes ashore onto our property. Thanks again for your review. We hope to see you again soon!

This property has a very nice interior design in a quiet location along the Saigon river. It is in a very nice expat community with lots of shops and restaurants nearby. Drawbacks would be that the location and view were overshadowed by the construction in the distance and the sight of garbage floating down the river. What stood out about this hotel was the staff. They were extremely friendly and helpful. After, talking to them you felt like you had been long time friends. They went out of their way to find you shops or other things you're looking for, drawing Maps or writing directions. I would go back there for the staff alone but it is also a very pretty hotel.

Lovely oasis in ho chi minh”
Please stay here while your in Ho chi Minh. We stayed here with a group of friends in our 30's. we loved the old converted mansion. Staff were very friendly, felt like they were inviting you into their home. The location is close to some of ho chi mins best shops and trendiest restaurants. I would describe District 2 the location as the 'Seminyak' of Saigon. A msut stay experience !

Beautiful location right on the River and in a great part of Thao Diem / District 2. Far more tranquil than the City Centre, yet an easy (and cheap) 10 or 15 minute cab away. Thao Dien is the only real "village" in Saigon and is a haven away from the madness on the Centre...it is also an expat enclave so tons of great restaurants, bars, cafes and boutique shops. Highly recommended.

Hi Tina, We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry to hear that your taxi driver had a hard time finding the property. We've recently put up some signs along the route to River Cottage. For everyone else who might be reading this review, I've noticed that a lot of the Taxi drivers in Vietnam don't prefer to use their GPS. I usually ask them to start the navigation and if that doesn't work, I'll pull up the directions on my smartphone and then direct the driver. We are registered with Google Maps and that app works quite well for finding us. We really appreciate that you took the time to give us some feedback. Please come see us again in the future! Thank you and kind regards, Eric Dieker Hotel Manager
