Renaissance Riverside Hotel Saigon

Reviewed 14 December 2013

I spent two nights here in early December and because I spend over 100 nights a year at Marriott properties, the hotel graciously upgraded me to a nice corner suite. The suite was spectacular. Two walls in the living room were all windows with great views of the city and the river. The bedroom was comfortable and it too had one wall of windows with a great view. The living room bathroom even had a heated toilet seat. The bathroom had a tub and shower that were marble. The executive lounge also had great views out the window and the food in the lounge each morning and evening was very good...not great...but very good. I can't comment much on the location for vacation or sight seeing. I was there on business and it was a perfect location for me.

Arrived on the 5th Dec and like the last reviewer was initially impressed with fhe service and decor. Our room however stank of stale cigarette smoke so as non smokers I complained but they had no doubles left and offered 2 free drinks. When we arrived at the atrium lounge to get our free drinks we were told there was no seats left we would have to go to the lobby them to find out the free drinks were soft drinks and not alcohol. Not impressed and will be writing a letter of complaint when I get home.

My family (including 2 kids) enjoyed our stay at the Renaissance Riverside Saigon (Marriott Group of Hotels) this December 2013. Everything was very comfortable and our needs were answered very quickly. Friendly and helpful. Didn't manage to get a river view room but they upgraded us to a bigger room with extra bed.

Centrally located with good variety of restaurants close by, especially if you like seafood. Found it safe to walk around - just need to be on the look out when crossing streets.

Hope to come back if I return to HCM.

When we arrived to the hotel reception we thought that this would be a nice stay in a luxury hotel.
The reception, the lobby, the staff, everthing felt prefect. All the way to our room.

When we entered the room we where met by a strong , stale smell . It was like they had had problems with damp.

We called the reception and they offered another room and two soft drinks!

After 30 minutes waiting we were escorted to our new room. To our surprise the smell in this room was even worse than in the first one.
The reception told us that these two rooms where the only non-smoking rooms avalaible.

We ended up in the first room since we had no other choice.

The hotel is very luxurious, the staff very friendly but the smell in these two rooms was terrible.

I´m sorry to say that if we visit Saigon again, we defintely not stay at the Renaissance!!

The title really says it all. The location is excellent. The staff were efficient , friendly and effective. The level of service was first class.

We booked a regular double room but were upgraded courtesy of my Gold status. The room was still cosy but nicely furnished. The Club lounge was super - good food and wine and super staff, with a view of the river. The kids loved it.

The pool area was very well done and a pleasant place to chill. The pool was really there to cool off rather than for fitness. Still you could always go to the Spa or have a drink at the pool bar :).

The river view is good if you can get to the executive club. It's nice to be on the executive club in rainy season. So you do not have to go out for food and drink. Around the hotel there are many nice small and chic restaurants and hangout place. Consider this is the old and chic area but pricey as well. For business traveler here might be a good choice.

The room is average. The bed is quite old but still function. Bathroom is quite a dangerous place with the slope bath tub. So please be careful. Room with river view might be nice. City view you will see the next building very close but not that close like in Hong Kong.

Chinese restaurant and buffet breakfast are very nice. Good selection of food and nice taste.

Room Tip: Ask for room with riverview
