Renaissance Riverside Hotel Saigon
Ranked #34 of 459 Hotels in Ho Chi Minh City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 December 2012

The Renaissance Riverside is a very good hotel. The rooms are excellent; meals are fabulous, and the staff can't do enough for you (something we noticed during our Vietnam holiday). We paid an extra $55 pp to join their club which entitled us to free breakfast, and cocktails, drinks and nibblies in the afternoon - a very good deal considering breakfast was $21 by itself. The hotel is in Saigon city, just a short walk to all the shops, markets etc. Although it is on a busy road, there is no road noise.
The swimming pool is on the roof and has views around the city - a great place to relax after walking around town. There is a poolside bar where you can get snacks as well as drinks. We would definitely stay there again, and recommend it to anyone.

Well priced, good service and convenient location. The staff was polite and helpful. Food in the concierge lounge was hit and miss. The hotel is very clean and accommodates Westerners well. Would recommend this hotel.

Checked in this afternoon. Staying on Marriott rewards points in city/river view club level King. Special check in on 18th floor for Platinum mbrs was very quick and easy. They had a beer waiting when I arrived as requested. Prompt, very pleasant service, check in took about 5 minutes. Room is nice but not best/largest of Marriott's I've frequented. Hard to complain when I utilized points. Staff is very friendly and all seem to speak English very well. So far, recommendations have been spot on and they will make transportation/reservation arrangements for you as requested. Nice location and easy walking distance to many good sights. Hotel not as outdated as others may suggest. Club lounge is very nice with good view of the river. Cocktail hour apps and drinks are excellent and service was very good. I'll update upon departure but so far, gotta give a big thumbs up.

Room Tip: Upper floors have best views.

Friendly staff, great location, clean and uncluttered rooms, great service.

Food is fresh and good but expensive compared to restaurants, bars and cafes in the area.

We didn't get a view from the room but the roof top pool and bar is great to relax and see the the city from high above.

Service was prompt on arrival. I'm obliging in extending our check out time. The in house restaurant was good value for money for hotel accommodation. Included buffet and a large selection of seafood which included lobster tail fresh king prawns all cooked to our liking. The bar on the second level was well set up for casual drinking and allowed for day time and wireless acess Overall it was a pleasant experience and would consider staying again. I was reccommended by a friend in France as his experience was also pleasant. Thank you.

Writing this from my room on the 17th floor after having spent a week at the Renaissance. From the desk to the cleaning staff to the food service staff, everyone is very friendly and well-trained. The room is comfortable and well-appointed and the club level amenities are as good as any Marriott I've stayed in around the world. The breakfast in the cafe is wonderful with seven stations offering both eastern and western foods. I didn't do the lunch or dinner buffets - there's too much else to try in Saigon. I did order from the a la carte menu late one night (bowl of delicious pho). I also ate once in the Chinese restaurant on the 2nd floor; again great food and perfect service. Laundry service came back perfect. Internet speeds are decent at about 3 Mbps both up and down with both ethernet and wifi available. I've seen better in a few hotels, and I've seen much worse in many others. Location's decent on the Saigon river and within easy walking distance to most, if not all of the district 1 attractions. And top to all that off, you'd pay almost twice the rate in many other Asian countries making this a great value.

Room Tip: Club Level floors are the place to be

I really enjoyed our time at the Renaissance Riverside. I loved that as a Marriott gold member, we were brought to the concierge level for check-in. The daily breakfast in the lounge was nice, with a great view of the river. I didn't find any excitement to this hotel, but if you are looking for a quality sleep, a great location in HCMC, a good breakfast, a great staff, and the ability to work with a really good tour staff to book trips, the Renaissance will never let you down. Just know that when you stay at the Renaissance, you might as well be staying in any hotel in any decent sized city in the US.

Room Tip: get a high room with river view access. While city view has its perks, you really don't want to...
