Riverside Hotel Saigon

  • Stay Nights : 3 people (2 adults, 1 child)
  • Stay Num : 2 nights 3 days

As this time I thought about Nha Trang as the main, I thought that I would like to keep accommodation expenses at Ho Chi Minh as low as possible. Also, the purpose of the trip with Ho Chi Minh was shopping at Dong Khoi Street, Ben Thanh market and eating walk, so there was no particular attention to hotels at Ho Chi Minh. Access to Dong Koi Street is 5 minutes on foot and there are many places to go within walking distance to sightseeing spots, and the accommodation fee is 4000 to 5000 yen per night, attractive to reasonable points such as free of charge for children and breakfast We decided to stay at. 【Official website】 Riverside Hotel Saigon

Riverside Hotel Saigon Exterior - entrance - front desk

Although it can not be said that the appearance is beautiful even in compliments, I felt that it is a fine building that has a strong sense and makes me feel history.

Entrance entrance is not wide and moves the glass door of the wooden frame manually, but occasionally the front staff opens and closes us.

When entering inside, the lobby was unexpectedly wide, I had a feeling of comfort and a relaxing feeling with a feeling of opening and tranquility.

The staff at the reception desk was gentle and at home feeling and cozy was good.

What are the rooms at the Riverside Hotel Saigon Spare Room?

There was an elongated corridor when opening the entrance door, there was a bathroom, a washstand and a toilet right on the left side immediately, there was a feeling of cleanliness. After passing through the corridor there was about 8 tatami space, mini fridge, closet, vanity desk, small table and 2 chairs equipped. It felt a bit dim, as I felt the size but the room was not very good in the sun.

There was a bedroom of about 8 tatami in the back, there were 2 single beds and an LCD TV and there was a feeling of cleanliness. You can also watch NHK on TV. Because air conditioning is centralized control, temperature control in the room can not be done, but since the air volume could be adjusted, there was no problem.

There was a feeling of cleanliness with Bet on 2 single beds, but there was a slight moist feeling. The pillow and mattress were a little hard but I did not mind so much and my sleepiness was normal. The comforter was thin like a sheet, but I could sleep comfortably by adjusting the air volume of the air conditioner.


There were five hangers in the closet and it was enough.

Safety box is provided with instruction manual of setting method so you can set it without problems, but since it is only English instruction manual, if you ask the front staff you can tell us anything unclear.

There was no terrace in the room where I stayed. The view from the window of the room is not a nice view as the roof of the building next door and time skys high-rise building can be seen, but the night square has been lighted up and you can enjoy a little bit. On the other side of the riverside we stayed, we could hope for the Mekong River. On the road there are unique Vietnamese cars and motorcycle congestion and sometimes the cyclor also runs so we can taste the feeling of coming to Vietnam. Riverside side has a lot of traffic, so it may feel a bit noisy.

Riverside Hotel Saigon bathroom and amenities

The water pressure of the shower of the bathroom was weak, the shower head was fixed to the wall, it was small and usability was not good, but the temperature of hot water could be adjusted and there was no problem.

The sink was too narrow so I could not put anything.

It was an old hotel so I could not shed the toilet paper and I had to throw away the toilet paper in the equipped box, but I felt a little uncomfortable. Overall there is oldness, but there is a feeling of cleanliness.

Amenity was soap, toothbrush, shampoo, rinse, shower cap, cotton, comb. Because I did not have a body soap, I used what I brought from Japan.

Soap is not very bubbling so it is not a problem if hand washing degree, but it is not recommended if you wash your body. Since shampoo and rinse are not good foaming, those who are worried may need to purchase in advance or purchase at a nearby supermarket.

Riverside Hotel Saigon Mini Bar

Minimal drinks are prepared, but if you buy the same one in a nearby supermarket etc and keep it in the refrigerator, it is available at less than half price, so we can not recommend it much except in case of emergency.

Riverside Hotel Saigon Breakfast at the restaurant in the hotel

There was one restaurant in the hall and we ate breakfast buffet every morning.

The Vietnamese National Food Four can be cooked on the spot. All the taste is normal, but it was satisfactory for the price of the room.

Riverside Hotel Saigon Hotel Surroundings

Shopping, dining and supermarkets are within walking distance around the hotel and access is very good. Taxis also stop easily everywhere, so you can use easily, and if you are in the suburbs you can go to your destination in about 100 to 300 yen. The road in front of the hotel has a lot of traffic and the horn is ringing from morning till night. Also, since there is no crosswalk on the road, I think it will be a pain to cross the other side. Because Vietnam is still a construction rush, there are also many buildings under construction and the local people are working from morning till evening. I thought that security was also safe enough, but enough care is necessary so that it is not drawn by car and motorcycle.

Riverside Hotel Saigon Access

From the airport to the hotel, the road is full of cars and motorcycles, but without traffic jams it will arrive in about 30 minutes by car. In our case, we asked the staff of the travel agency to pick up you and take it, but if it is about 30 minutes by taxi, I think it is about 1000 yen.

Riverside Hotel Saigon Staff

The hotel staff corresponded sincerely. There is no stubbornness of correspondence like the staff of a luxury hotel in honesty, and there is not familiarity either, so we stayed comfortable to the last with a feeling of at home. The speed of response was also nice. I think that I can not communicate in Japanese. I was talking in English all. Staff at the front desk were also kind and pleasant to correspond, so there was not any problem and there was no inconvenience. I do not feel inconveniences especially if I can not speak English.

Riverside Hotel Saigon customer base

Although it rarely seemed to meet other guests, I saw parents of Japanese elderly couple, Vietnamese office worker, children of Korean children at breakfast venue. The Vietnamese office worker was familiar with the feeling like regulars.

Riverside Hotel Saigon Summary

I think that we can stay in more satisfying hotel if we make more money, but we felt some inconvenience badness stayed at this hotel this time, but we are satisfied satisfactorily enough. The best reason was the service that was commensurate with the cost of accommodation. The taste was normal, but the breakfast buffet over the imagination, the TV in the room with cleanliness was able to watch NHK, the faithfulness of the staff at the front desk was particularly good. Also it is easy to get to Dong Khoi Street by foot so it is easy to access and it was easy to go to popular restaurants, souvenir shops, supermarkets and sightseeing spots. There were a lot of good points, but the only thing that felt a sense of discomfort is that the toilet pepper could not flow to the toilet. However, if I had the opportunity next time, I wanted to stay again.
