In Macro view, Riverside is a very nice Apartment located in a nice neighborhood.
It is equipped with Tennis court, Volleyball court, Basketball court, Gym, Swimming Pool and more.
Everything seems well organized.
In Micro view, the hairdryer was broken, the air-conditioner was not strong enough, all kitchen utensils were dirty and the television was terrible.
Detail things seem NOT well managed.
So, I would recommend this place If you are planning to stay here permanently.
However, if you are just a traveller staying for just few days, I will not recommend.
The price is also not cheap, so with this price I think you can find a better place to enjoy your holidays.
Stayed for a week for a business trip (client's location was within 1 km ) so didn't expect much - but left quite happy with the place.
1. Quiet -it is a residential area so I was surprised the place was still pretty quiet and relaxed,
2. Location and view - wonderful view of the river, taxis easy to get, and can walk (if you dare cross the highway on foot!!!! - that was an experience in itself)
3. Nice restaurant within the compound
4. Complete amenities for the easy traveller - laundry, food, minishop, tennis/basketball court/gym, coffee shop, tennis instructors, swimming pool
5. Rooms were decent and fairly large (I was alone but I can imagine the my suite able to take 4 people quite easily)
6. Internet everywhere.
7. Price is quite reasonable.
8. Not quite HCMC center but taxis are quite affordable.
9 . Staff quite helpful (and very polite)
Overall, pretty happy with my stay. And I will surely try to come back if I want some R&R.
Had a great stay with my family here. This place has great facilities with a great coffee shop and a convenient store along with a great pool, gym and children’s playground. The rooms are very spacious and extremely comfortable. Great place for a young family.
Gated, serviced apartment complex fronting the river in District 2. Quiet and calm location. Just about everything you'd need onsite for a short stay - mini grocery, restaurant, decent gym, pool, tennis, spacious attractive grounds, kids play area. Taxis waiting most hours, 10 minutes to call at other times. Boat taxi to city at scheduled times is reliable and eliminates hassle of traffic to city center. Spacious and comfortable except for the bed which was hard as a rock, but fine when supplemented with the sofa cushions. Would rate "5" except for bed and slightly dated furnishings, but very good value overall.
Stayed here for 3 nights recently. Must admit it took a little coaxing on the part of my friend to book this place as I tend to favour hotels in District 1 but am glad I broke with tradition. First off, as its name clearly states, it's a service apartment - not a hotel. From my perspective - it's every bit like a gated-community, catering to expat families and long term stays. Very good first impression, well manicured grounds, ample recreational facilities (e.g. an excellent gym, extensive children's playground, well stocked mini-mart, etc).
Located in District 2 which on an average incurred about 15 -20 mins travelling time to District 1. Nonetheless, whatever little added travelling time I'd experience was more than made up by it’s tranquil riverside setting. Throughout my entire stay, there was hardly any hint of HCM’s cacophony of traffic noise which made for a truly blissful stay. The property also operates a river shuttle service which I didn't try - offering up to (if I am not wrong ) 4 - 5 runs a day at different times to key points within HCM. Taxis are constantly waiting for fares in the main carpark so it’s very convenient if one needs to head out. The rooms are a little dated but are very clean and spacious. A good sized kitchen is available for those who fancy that feature. Wifi works perfectly and water pressure ideal. Staff were friendly throughout and housekeeping made sure our linen and bath towels were changed daily.
All in all, an enjoyable and very pleasant stay - one place I'd not hesitate to give the thumbs up to and recommend
