I was accommodated at the Riverside Apartments (not to confuse with Riverside Hotel) for 3 nights between 16 - 19 March 2014. The accommodation place consists of a large number of 2 storey buildings, each containing fully equipped apartments, with bedroom, a large living, kitchen , bathroom and a small terrace or balcony, overlooking the garden. I had a ground floor apartment, so could exist from my terrace directly into the large garden. The location is right on the banks of the Saigon River, in district 2. The hotel has a pier and a shuttle boat for easy access to the city center(about 15 min).
All necessary utilities are in the apartment, as they are designated also for long term stay , for large families with kid. Many expats or other foreign people working in Saigon are living here. The hotel has a good restaurant offering tasty and rich breakfast, and you can as well have your dinner right on the banks of the river. Cleanness is the main principle of this place not a single drop of dust was in the apartment when i checked in. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and at the front desk they speak good English. Different trips can be organized directly there. For kids, large playing ground are provided. A swimming pool with long chairs is located behind the restaurant. The whole place is full of green, flowers, coconut trees. Fresh air and silence surround you in this place as there is no traffic noise. I made 2 days a Mekong tour and visited for only half a day Saigon, but you feel completely relaxed when returning home - yes indeed it is like a home or even better .
Actually I think this place is the only accommodation place in whole Saigon I would return with greatest pleasure, should my path lead me again to this great city, with its crazy traffic. As I considered everything a superlative (even the price of 100 USD/per night / where ever in other places you will find such a large, tasteful arranged apartment on the riverbanks, in such a lovely surrounding with this price?). The Riverside apartment in Ho Chi Minh is therefor highly recommended, being the best place to get accommodated n Saigon.
