The Riverside serviced apartments are about 10 to 15 minutes out of the main city hub so it is quiet and on the riverfront. We firstly had a 1 bedroom apartment, then on our return, were upgraded to a 2 bedroom. On site there is a laundry, coffee shop, general store and a restaurant where you get breakfast and main meals. The apartments are secure and have balconies, good sized bathrooms and fairly modern furnishings. There is a main office in a great garden setting, a swimming pool and playground for the littler kids. Overall, we would recommend this property.

Room Tip: We had rooms on the top level (4th floor) for a pretty good view

Dear Valued guest,
Thank you very much for this review.
We are really pleased to read your comments about Riverside. For our service I wanted to had that we have free shuttle bus and shuttle boat to go to the city center. The boat trip, for example, can highlight your stay if you have the chance to use it at the sunset time. It is particularly outstanding, and we always recommend it to our residents.
Thanks to the big garden, the sports equipments, children’s playground, and the Blu Bar and Grill, we are happy to create a real different experience for travelers and residents of all ages.

Thank you again for staying with us, we are waiting for you to come back very soon!
Best Regards,
Pierre-Olivier Mailliard
Resident Manager

I was in District 2 of HCMC for a week of work, and needed somewhere to stay. My travel agent recommended Riverside Serviced Apartments, as it was only 5 minutes from my place of work, which was very convenient. So I took up the option.

From the name of the property, it is obviously riverside, on the Sai Gon river. Upon arrival I was greeted by pleasant reception staff, but was somewhat shocked when I had to leave a security deposit in case I did not return the key on check-out? Yes, a deposit for the key!

Never mind. I was taken to my apartment in an electric cart, a 1 bedroom, ground floor unit. First impression, this is something from the 70's ( I did some research but could not find out when the facility was built). The unit had a reasonable combined lounge / dining area, a small, but fully-equipped kitchen, a good size bedroom, and an okay bathroom.

All of the furniture and fittings looked original, meaning 20 years old. The lounge room had both air-conditioning and ceiling fan, and your could open up the room for access to a small balcony. There was cable TV, with the usual foreign channels (CNN, BBC, HBO, Fox Sports, etc) along with some local channels. Free wifi is provided, but a bit on/off, and not a high speed.

The fan in the bedroom did not work very well, but the A/C did work very well. Hard to get the temperature right.

As the property is set up as a resort, all the facilities were here. Pool, restaurant, convenience store (very retro, state-owned style shop), a coffee shop, tennis courts, dog run, and laundry service.

The restaurant was very dated, however the menu was comprehensive, with Western, Vietnamese, and Chinese food options. Service was good.

An added bonus is a river-boat shuttle to and from District 1, and also a bus that can take you shopping.

All in all, a good place to stay, away from the hustle and bussle of downtown; and a hint of nostalgia for a time gone by.

Room Tip: Higher floor provide a view of the Sai Gon river

Set in private grounds in a beautifully kept gardens, away from traffic and located on the river, this compound had everything you needed for single or married families. A private free river taxi set off at appointed times to Ho Chi Minh city. An alternative was to call the innumerable taxis available or use your own transport. There was 24 hour security and all transport had to check in for access to the compound. A private car/scooter,moped,bike park had similar security. The apartments themselves were top quality, air conditioning, en suite. Fully equipped kitchens, lounge, tv. Daily maid service. Spaceous bedrooms with a safe for valuables. Petfriendly, cats and dogs allowed.A bouquet of flowers with a starter gift pack of teas, savouries and sweets on dining room table on arrival. The focal point was the bar/restaurant area alongside the swimming pool where Xmas and New Year celebrations were held for the residents. The shop provided most of what you wanted, food local UK and USA imported goods and though expspensive was so much easier to pop into than trapsing into the city for the excellent supermarkets there. The launderette provided self-service washing facilities, but you could pay for someone to do all the laundry and ironing. All trees in compound labelled with scientific name, an amazing collection of unusual trees and plants. Full time gardeners kept place immaculate. Private mooring for your own private yacht as well as compound's private river taxi. The gym was fully equipped and better than many a UK gym. Personal training and private sessions available, likewise with the tennis facilities. Private tutoring from professional tennis coach could be booked. Nearby, was the beauty salon, where hairdressing, massage,pedicure and manicure was available. Best service had so far better than UK, or caribbean areas. At the main office any enquiry could be addressed and explained. Two wi-fi areas were available for internet.There were always two duty managers during the day. Creche facilities were located near the main office in a quieter area of the compound. Office staff were fluent in English as were those in the shop, bar and restaurant. This compound was for long term residents working in Ho chi minh , businessmen,teachers, pilots etc. I spent 5 weeks here and it was not long enough.Had a brilliant time and all the staff were exceptionally polite, kind and ultra efficient. Definitely made welcome by all and did not want to leave spent 5 weeks here in dec/jan2011

Room Tip: rooms above ground level quieter

Dear Mrs. Desmoulins,
Thank you for this amazing review, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. This is a great reward for our teams to read this kind of review.
For the readers who do not know our property, I would like to add a detail about Riverside.
Riverside is a serviced apartments, our core business is short and long term rental, nevertheless we also have a hotel activity for the guests who prefer to rent per night.
When you mention that we are pet friendly, it is correct but for the short and long term residents, we do not accept pets for the guests who book per night.
Again, thank you for your comment. We really appreciate your support and look forward to welcoming you back to Riverside in the near future.

Regards,
Pierre-Olivier Mailliard

We stayed here while visiting friends for their wedding & it's a lovely complex to stay on, it has a pool & play area for the kids with tennis courts & a restaurant & bar area too. The apartments are safe & secure & so clean & spacious. We had a cleaner each day too which we didn't expect. It is a 3 minute walk to a Main Street where you can find restaurants & bars. There is also a car park where taxis sit so you can always call a taxi. I would definitely recommend a stay here.
