It’s hard to imagine, while sitting on a private dock watching the boats go by, that you are in the middle of as large and busy a city as Saigon. I have loved our stay here. The staff is friendly, kind and helpful. Our room is spacious and comfortable - the bed was firm and excellent with good linens. This was our first time in Saigon and with the Grab app it was super easy to get back and forth to the sites in the central city. I highly recommend staying here as it is a perfect place to relax and rejuvenate before heading back into the intensity of the city. Besides, there always seems to be a nice breeze on the dock!

Beautiful location with great view of the river from the deck. Great place for early evening drinks. The rooms have a natural and rustic feel and would be a great location for a photo shoot. Fridge is stocked with craft beer. There is a mosquito net over the canopy bed. Pro tip: lower the netting once you check in. Don’t wait for night to add the barrier from mosquitoes. Rooms provide mosquito spray. The hotel is a bit far from the main road and so it was tricky for the taxi driver to find. But through a pre-arrival email from the hotel, I had the contact info to get someone to direct the taxi driver. Free bikes are available to rent and then it is just a short ride to the Main Street. Lots of nice restaurant and bars to choose from. Overall a great stay. Totally recommend it for a short getaway!

We sadly only had 2 nights at River Cottage & would highly recommend it for someone looking for something a bit different. The rooms and deck are exactly as the pictures show (we stayed in Riverside 1), and the staff were super friendly. The bed was one of the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in, and the entire place was immaculately clean! We spent a delightful hour or so watching the world float by and the sun go down from the balcony (with a G&T); there’s quite a lot of river traffic which may disturb light sleepers - we never travel without ear plugs, so no issue for us. Couple of points to note if visiting here: It’s a little off the beaten track, so make sure you have the address in Vietnamese for your taxi driver. There’s free tea, coffee, snacks and water available in the room but the coffee is a 3 in 1 mix (coffee, sugar & coffeemate) so if you prefer something different, you may need to bring your own or pop downstairs for them to make it for you - note Vietnamese coffee is super strong!!

When ever we are in Ho Chi Minh we try and stay here. The beds are Devine the service is wonderful the scenery is for us the best and tranquility exudes the cottage. The WiFi can be a little week up stairs but in the common area it is fine
