Renaissance Riverside Hotel Saigon
Ranked #34 of 462 Hotels in Ho Chi Minh City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 March 2012

I stayed here for two nights for business. I have stayed in another upscale hotel in Saigon and found the Renaissance to be wanting. Yes, it is clean with a good location next to the water. That's about it. The staff is not overly welcoming or helpful and service is slow. The rooms are in desperate need of updating and have a strong stale odor. The breakfast buffet is also mediocre at best.
I admit that I do get spoiled on my international business trips as far as hotels but with a little research you can get a room at the Park Hyatt-Saigon for about the same rate and it is amazing!!

Room Tip: You can ask for a riverside view and pay a little more but honestly the view is not worth it. If yo...

I have been regularly staying at the Renaissance Riverside for the past 3 years when on business trips to Ho Chi Minh. The hotel is ideally located in District 1, so all the restaurants, shopping, and bars are a short walk away. The hotel itself is very up-to-date with flat panel TVs in every room, excellent breakfast buffet, and very good service. Overall, any time I visit it is very relaxing and a trip I look forward to.
