If you prefer boutique hotels that are well run, comfortable and affordable the Saigon River Boutique Hotel is unbeatable value and a marvellous place to stay. From the friendly, welcoming and fully prepared staff (we arrived at 6 am) to the convivial hospitality of the restaurant staff we were treated with warmth and professionalism. Unable to speak Vietnamese we were... More

Thank you Janet for your kind review and for being such a wonderful guest, bringing with your a wonderful spirit of engagement, fun and intellect.

We'd stayed at the Saigon River several times in the past & had always been very happy with it, hence our decision to stay here again. We were not disappointed - Saigon River consistently delivers quality service with great facilities at an affordable price. Location is also pretty great as it's right in the middle of the shopping district. The... More

Thank you for your kind review. I was a little nervous to begin with when you said you had stayed at the hotel on many previous trio to Saigon and enjoyed it and was worried you were about to say that things had gone into a decline. The paranoia of hospitality people! Look we really aim to provide a great... More

Look I loved hearing that the hotel was "Brilliant!" Say it again please! We aim to provide a great place to stay and work hard at that, but sometimes you just get caught up in the work, so it is special to receive your enthusiastic comments. I agree it is a super area here and even though I have lived... More

My stay at Saigon River boutique hotel was a great one, the staffs greeted us upon arrival and were very hospitable, attentive and effective. Rooms were excellent, bed super comfortable. Location is good as well, as it's just short distance away from all the shopping areas and you can head back to rest after finish shopping.

Really appreciated your kind remarks and now it is my turn, as we love receiving guests from Japan. Come back!! It is important to welcome guests and try to so that correctly, so thanking you for your feed back. Hospitable,attentive and affective is a good thing to achieve, but suspect your own friendliness would have played a part too. Good... More

My partner and I stayed here in February. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly- especially Daniel, who works front of house, and everywhere else, who gave us some great tips and advice. The rooms are fine for the price. Comfortable beds and generous size bathrooms. Perfect in ho chi minh where you do not plan on spending a lot... More

Nice to hear you found our hotel to be charming and yes the location is perfect and that was the most important reason for choosing this location to open, bearing in mind most important attractions are within walking distance. Was surprised the learn that you were disturbed by noise from an adjoining room, as this has not been reported before.... More

Saigon River is located in a really nice and safe area on Dong Khoi street. The lobby and hotel front is long and narrow, as are most boutique hotels, but it is modern and tastefully design, so first impression was good. The room is even better, even if it is only a standard room with no window. Everything is in... More
