Thank you all at Riverside for the most amazing stay .My wife and I stayed at the apartments for 6 weeks whilst visiting our family in Ho Chi Minh.From the gardeners to the Captain of the launch we were looked after royally by each and every one of you,with a smile and a friendly daily greeting.
My highlight was my evening sunset cruise to the city and back,watching all the amazing river traffic going to and fro.The meals at Blu restaurant,and the room service facility they provide was excellent.
Thanks again to you all, and seasons greetings from cold and very windy Scotland

Have stayed on and off at this property for the past 5 years and can tell you that there is no better setting for families in Saigon. The property is 20 min from downtown, but the property has boat and bus shuttle service to the center of the city frequently. The rooms are not the most modern but are functional and have 24 hour back up power, a rarity in even hotels in the city. In addition, 24 hour security, a restaurant and a grocery store on premise and a swimming pool, gym and tennis court make vacationing easy here. Met some nice people who have lived there for years and if you go at the right time they have resident parties you can attend! I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Get a room on the ground floor or with a patio for more space

From the very first moment we entered the Riverside grounds we were made to feel valued customers, from the welcome at the office to the cold towels with a lemon grass scent. Myself and the family (with two daughters 13 and 9) had spent four exhausting days walking Ho Chi Minh City, taking in the sights and sounds of the most chaotic streets we have ever experienced, I can not say in words how relaxing the first day at Riverside was.

The girls immediately put their bathers on and did not leave the pool for hours! which was good because a cold beer by the side of the pool did me the world of good also.

The hotel staff were the friendliest and most helpful ever, from dropping off a power adapter to charge my laptop, to organising a tour operator boat to pick us up from Riverside's own pier for a guided tour of the Saigon river and Cu Chi tunnels.

The rooms are very spacious, we stayed in a two bedroom apartment, it contained two bathrooms and toilets and a separate kitchen (we did not use the kitchen, but nice to have) it was also nice to just relax on the couch and read a book.

You will not be dissapointed with your stay.

We stayed here for 1 year from July2008 to Jun2009 when we first landed in HCMC, and now for another week just as we're about to leave Vietnam.

Compared to a villa, you do not get as much space inside, the interior can be a little old (depending on the unit you stay), but the surrounding grounds are lovely, very green, matured gardens, space for kids to run around, ride their bikes safely, mini soccer field etc.
I love getting to work with their boat shuttle, where you escape from the traffic, and arrive at work on a very tranquil ride along saigon river.

It's a great place to stay, when you first arrive. Safe, and the serviced apartment removes the headache of finding a maid/guard etc. Also great for families with little kids.

We loved staying at Riveside. Travelling with two children (10 and 12), this was our first destination in Vietnam and offered us a great way to ease ourselves into the 'culture shock' of this country. The apartments are a fair way from the city, but they offer both a bus shuttle and a ferry shuttle into HCMC. Taking the boat into HCMC in the morning (about 20 mins) is a great start to the day. We found Vietnam to be very noisy and busy and being able to 'escape' to a bit of quiet at the end of an exciting and busy day suited us really well.

The rooms were fantastic. The kids were able to share a room separate from ours (very difficult to find in Vietnam!) and the cooking facilities made preparing meals and snacks easy too. The pool and grounds were lovely, the staff very friendly and helpful. Email contact before we arrived provided a really good feeling about the accommodation, and the apartments really lived up to our expectations.

We spent 5 nights at the Rex Hotel which was great and 10 nights at the Riverside apartments. Very clean and spacious. It was so nice to come somewhere quiet after the noise of downtown. Riverside provides excellent boat and bus shuttles.

I've just returned from a most relaxing stay with my daughter and wife at Riverside Apartments. I had some business to attend to but decided to take a longer break with the family.

We were so well looked after and the staff were courteous and attentive at all times.

We all had a thoroughly enjoyable time and look forward to returing to RIverside again soon.
