It's difficult to review this hotel. Positives: The hotel is in a good location, making it easy to explore the city. The room was relatively comfortable, and we got upgraded from a standard room as they had overbooked these. Breakfast was average, and the hotel is reasonably priced. Negatives: For the majority of our stay there was no wifi -... More

We stayed here for 1 night when we arrived in Ho Chi Minh to discover the city - it was great, the staff is really friendly, the room is clean and there's even a small balcony. Bathroom is simple but nice with a walk in shower. We had a great time here in this little place.

Saigon River Boutique Hotel is a happy, quaint boutique hotel in a central area in Dong Khoi. It's near everything one needs. But I think what really makes this place special is its courteous and very accommodating staff. I had a few concerns in the room that I was checked in and they made sure to get these addressed. I...

The location of the hotel is excellent, in the midst of District 1. The staff are very friendly and helpful and treat you as part of the 'family'. The rooms are basic, but comfortable and clean. For such a low room rate (including breakfast), this a great bargain but is not a Hyatt or Sheraton - for that pay 5... More

Weren't too impressed: shabby even in the "better" rooms (saw two deluxe, stayed in one), staff not very keen serving, average breakfast. Also suspected a moisture problem in our room, possibly caused by the AC leaking into the wall - a clumsy wallpaper cover-up behind the curtain explained itself when we woke up in the morning with iching faces, sniffing...

Have now stayed at Saigon River numerous times as I've passed through HCMC between destinations. Tim and Graeme (owners) welcomed me as an old friend and Natalie Sam and Jason (reception) are so friendly and helpful I can't praise them enough. They take care of everything. The hotel itself is small and well-priced but comfortable, well-appointed and always spotlessly clean.... More

Nice staff and clean well kept rooms. When booking the room I thought there was a balcony. I mentioned this to staff and they showed me that, yes indeed, there was a balcony, but was very small and difficult to gain access, so it was never used. The bed was quite hard, as are many beds in Asia, so I... More

We appreciate you taking the time to write a complimentary review for our hotel.
