          1 Week In Saigon, Vietnam”

          This time I returned to Saigon for only one week. I arrived Tan Son Nhat airport around 9:30PM on 4/09/2018 after 18 hrs flight from my home in San Francisco, California. Since I already had my reservation booked through Agoda.com, upon arriving to the hotel at almost 11:00PM, to my surprise the night auditor already had my booking layout ! Since I requested for favorite room number on the third floor that I stayed on every visit, as I walked in to my room I already felt like being home again ! The location is wonderful since it situate right on District 1. ( main attraction ). My old home when I left in 1975 to go the U.S is a 15 min walk from the hotel. Over all the staff is very attentive, Continental breakfast with a few Vietnamese dishes which is fine ! Next to the hotel is a very nice coffee shop name " Runam café "!. I will definitely return this Riverside Hotel Saigon on my next stay.

          Thumb up !”

          The Riverside Hotel Saigon is the place you should stay since it's right at District 1, the main streets of Saigon. In the morning from my hotel I can walk to Dong Khoi street which is 5 minutes away to have breakfast or coffee. Everything is within distance and very convenient. if you need to travel you can call a Uber which the price is very reasonable !

          Good location near Dongkhoi and pier to Vung Tau, comfortable room and beds, pleasant staff

          very good attention to my special request of a good superior room. really appreciated! though some members commented the poor maintenance of the hotels, we found it really good in terms of the conditions of the room. the beds are very comfortable. the breakfast offers quite a variety of good with quality, yet the hotel may çonsider to keep the food hot near the end of the breakfast session! the pho and the freshly-made eggs are really recommended. visit to all main tourist spots in district 1 is within walking distance. if you would travel to vung tau during your stay in hcmc, and want to spend on a budget hotel, riverside hotel saigon is the best choice i would recommend, especially we were traveling with a child, commuting to and from pier is easy (of course we could not avoid walking across the busy road with lots of motorbikes. really worth the price!!!

          A French Experience”

          I love the old French architecture of this hotel from its gorgeous facade to the ornate lobby, the curving staircase and old hat rooms, statues and all the wood. It might be an old hotel but it's full of character. And the room was spacious with comfortable bed, pillow and clean linens, a ref, flat screen TV and a desk. The tub was hard to get into as it is really high, and they could put anti-slip adhesive so you don't slip. They could also give instructions for how to use the safe. Otherwise, I loved it and will stay here again if I ever go back to Ho Chi Minh, especially since the buffet breakfast was included. So worth the money.

          I like the outlook of the hotel and its location which is both romantic next to Saigon River and next to Saigon attractions. Where can you get both worlds with affordable price ? Besides the staff are all in uniform and so nice at the counter. Thank you staff of Riverside Hotel Saigon . The food in the restaurant is very distinctive. I always like their black coffee every morning. It makes you feel like you are enjoying it in the original Highland with a lot of coffee around. Thank you the black coffee lady in the restaurant !!!!

          Good location and good breakfast
          No views for the Superior rooms

          As I had to attend a conference which was held in the Renaissance Riverside hotel Saigon, I found staying in the Riverside hotel Saigon very convenient as it is located almost next door to the former hotel. It is really value for money for one to stay in a three-star hotel which is sharing the vicinity of many five-star hotels located on the same street opposite the Saigon river. I found the breakfast (included in the room charges) particularly impressive as there were changes, albeit small, made to the food offered each day for berakfast. Although the style and decor of the hotel is a bit old, I do not think that they are not important as the tourists would have been out and about all day long. Highly recommended!

          Staff met the needs but not personable.

          We enjoyed the convenient location on the Saigon River. We were within blocks of the fine shopping, museums and ample amount of great restaurants. We received a tremendous amount of help from the tour company located in the lobby. The free breakfast had a large selection of tasty food. The hotel is a larger size from the cozier types we had stayed on our trip. Because of this one loses the personal touch from the staff. They were helpful but not personal. Being unfamiliar with Ho Chi Minh City we were happy with our selection.

          Great location, friendly staff.”

          Top location, nice view great staff.

          We really enjoyed our stay here. We were upgraded to a junior suite for all three nights which gave us a lovely river view. The hotel is in a great spot. Right near the river, directly across the road from where the night dinner cruises depart. Very easy to find when walking around the city, or for taxis. The hotel has seen better days, and could use a refit, but I liked the fact that it had a bit of history behind it. In its day, it would have been a prime hotel. Nowadays, it is a little dated although the owners have tried to keep some of the style of a bygone era. In our room there was what appeared to be a mission control command centre for everything from the TV and a radio, to the air conditioning. While some of it worked, some of it didn't, as it probably dated back to the 90s, and hadn't been updated as new TVs etc. were brought in. Still, it shows that the owners intended to make the hotel into an upmarket place. While the WiFi was on the whole OK, there was a day where a wedding party had booked out a number of rooms. There were a bunch of young Vietnamese people all sitting around sucking up bandwidth with their phones, and it was difficult to get a decent signal at times. Generally it was OK though. The staff were always smiling and friendly, always happy to help. It was always nice to come back to the hotel and see their smiling faces. Breakfast was nice enough, plenty of variety, and fresh cooked omelettes if you want them. Fruit, vegetables, porridge, cereals, noodles, all that sort of thing. While I wouldn't pay $1,000,000 for it, we enjoyed the breakfast enough to see us on our way to exploring the rest of the city. The Riverside Hotel is right in the centre of town. Easy walking distance to shops, tourist sites, plenty of restaurants and nightlife. All up, I would more than gladly stay at this hotel again, especially for the price we paid for it. Top value, great location. I recommend the dinner cruises, good night out.

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 !

          Riverside hotel in Ho Chi Minh City”

          Location at the riverside next to all the tourist boats

          This property is a classical tourist hotel in Ho Chi Minh, dating back to colonial times. Located next to Hotel Majestic, Renessaince Riverside and the (still under construction) Liberty Riverside Hotel, the Riverside hotel is in good company - but with lower room rate. Hotel has a Spa, Travel agent and a small restaurant ; and banqueting areas on 1st and on top floor. Rooms have been renovated few years ago, and look quite fresh and clean still. City center is easy to access by walking minute or two, many restuarants and shops quite close by. Many rooms have riverview - which is nice - but comes with a downside : one of the heaviest trafficked boulevards is also in front of the hotel. So if you wish peace and quiiet, ask for backside room. No riverview - but a quiet night instead. Restaurant is ok for breakfast ; wifi, minibar, safebox etc. all provided in room. Staff is friendly - and most of them speak English. But their training does not really include customer servcie. All and all though, for the roomrate paid, in this location, quite reasonable deal.

          Large bath tubs, good set of complimentary bath supplies, wide array of television channels, soft pillows, great breakfast buffet.
          Some rooms do not have windows, the hotel has seen better days, slow elevator (I used the stairs in frustration), paint chipping off the walls.

          The Riverside Hotel is a good place to start your stay in Ho Chi Minh City. It overlooks the Saigon River and is centrally located to many other hotels. The Riverside Hotel is inexpensive (probably mid-range for a night's stay) and the staff that works there are quite friendly.

          Riverside Hotel Saigon --- Great Time”

          Room was pretty big,clean and quiet, given it was facing a major roadway. Breakfast was different every day and good value for something inclusive in the bill.
          Guess you'd want to bring your own toiletry as shampoo needs something to be desired. View out of the room facing the rear of the hotel . . . guess you have to see to believe :)

          Despite initial expectations, the stay was very pleasant. Hotel is located at the end of the most famous shopping street in Ho Chi Minh and facing the Saigon River. The hotel staff were very friendly and attended to all our needs with the right suggestions and recommendations. Despite the various differing reviews about the breakfast, it was nothing fancy but we found it to be very much on the plus side and recommended.

          Back to the future with this 80s hotel”

          Great hotel for those into vintage and style. Think walls. The old features make the place feel homely, they would do well to employ a cultural sensitive stylist to reach an affluent young customer into the 80s and culture significance. The top floor would make for an amazing coworking space and traveling workers like, Remote Work. It’s a refreshing change to the tacky and poorly build hotels plaguing Vietnam. It could be on the map with Rex and Metropole with some skilful design-centric management. There’s a place for a hotel like the Riverside Hotel in a quagmire of pretenders that is Saigon accomodation industry - its a diamond in the rough.

          This was a return stay. Having been here at the start of our trip, we rebooked since we were flying out of Ho Chi Minh City. The room was half the price as the first, and perhaps half the size, though still fine for 2 people. Instead of a river view we faced a wall, but for the price we couldn't complain. I was disappointed not to see the china tea cups and hot water pot that we had on our first stay, but a call to the front desk brought a bellman with a pot up in about 5 minutes. The breakfast was great, and we discovered that they served pho, which we'd missed seeing the first time there.

          The Saigon Riverside is a glorious building in need of care! This is mainly evidenced in the dated look of the building and need for carpet cleaning and paint. I travelled to Saigon alone, and felt very safe here. My room was large and had a refrigerator. It was very clean. There was complimentary bottled water, WiFi and breakfast. I was within waking distance of shops. Within the hotel there is a travel agency and restaurant. The staff was friendly and accomodating. This was great value for what I paid
