Recent guest reviews

And excellent staff!! This was a fast overnight en route to the beach. I’m a loyal Marriott man, so there was no question about where I’d stay on this trip. The lobby and common areas appear to be recently renovated to nice effect. The ground floor bar and restaurant were lovely and inviting. Upstairs the rooms are a little dated but super clean and spacious. The executive lounge is from the same era as the rooms, but it features lovely river views that our particular room lacked. The food and beverage choices in the lounge were ample and quite tasty. The staff at the hotel from the doorman to the room attendant to the desk clerks were marvelous! Friendly, helpful, caring, welcoming...everything management must hope for and more! I will definitely return here next time I’m in HCMC!

Stayed on 9th floor room of this hotel with town view. It was quiet and large room with chaise long. The bathroom was more dated and had shower over bath with shower curtain ( a pet hate of mine) no shaving/vanity mirror and nowhere to hang wet towels. Hotel staff were very friendly and the location is good for walking to post office, war remnants museum, market, etc The breakfast is excellent with lots of choice of Western and Asian style with lovely breads, fresh fruit and fresh juices. It’s also a cool restaurant in terms of decor and ambience. Rooftop bar has good views of river and there is a small pool. My kids used the gym which they said was good. Would happily return to this hotel although would expect an update of the tired bathroom.

So the hotel is by no means new (built in 1999) but very well maintained and there are signs that some areas (lobby area + 18th floor lounge, for example) were recently remodeled. The dimensions of my room on the 17th floor were ample although the room decor was dated. Breakfast was included in my room rate and of excellent quality in the restaurant on the ground floor. The hotel gym is nothing to write home about - limited equipment that is also dated. The pool, on the other hand, is impressive. Decent sized and on the roof that offers great views of the city. The strongest asset of this hotel, in my opinion, is its location: in District 1 right on the river. You are walking distance to some great restaurants and sights in the heart of HCMC. Would not hesitate to stay here again when I return to HCMC!

Frankly speaking, if it was not because of the great smile from cute receptionist,and the free upgrade to river view room, I really want to rate 2 stars to this hotel, this seems the most run down Marriott Renaissance I ever stayed. Location: Overall just next to Saigon river, near to TimeSquare, central of Ho Chi Minh city. Guys! Be careful with Pimps around the place if you don’t have a great control towards yourself. Room: Very old; it seems they are maintaining it hard. Room are full with weird smell, bath room is kind of very sticky for no reasons while it get wets. Food : Service served by Viet Kitchen is terrible - limited choice of foods, small and packed space; staffs were hard to approach & kind of rude while asking for room details. Viet Kitchen located in Ground floor which see thru the traffic condition of Ho Chi Minh city which almost lost my appetites. Staff : Very nice Receptionist, A cute Japanese lady Hanako san; who had cheered me very much during my tired arrival. Mobile checking is definitely useful for me to check-in in advance. Not a problem of Marriott Renaissance, it seems this is something incapable with local management. Please try The Riverie or Sheraton if you would like to visit Ho Chi Minh city. Personally I won’t recommended Marriott Renaissance Riverside Saigon in this case.

In a 5 star hotel you always expect the following: 1. Proper amenities and facilities like gym, pool, lounge, steam/sauna etc. 2. High quality service. This property exceeds all of them and on top of that food is amazing especially the breakfast and something I always looked forward to during my stay. Staff is super friendly and helpful, and the team working at the lounge is just amazing. Highly recommended...

Overall a good stay...nothing to complain about. Rooms a little tired but clean and well serviced. Live the river vies from this hotel and its location is convenient for walking to many of the cities highlights

Hotel is very convenient being situated in the center of the city. It has all amenities with a lovely rooftop swimming pool and lounge are. The rooms were spacious with comfortable beds and a functional bathroom.

I stayed in Renaissance Riverside Hotel Saigon for two months and was completely happy. Hotel has a superb location with a magnificent view of Saigon river and the nearby districts if you book the river view room, room is okay, nice bathrooms and has a very comfortable bed. WiFi is free and very reliable. The breakfast offered Western and Asian food, and both of the staffs at the lounge and restaurant are quite friendly. In particular I would like to commend Bich Van's team and a special thank you to all of you who were always willing to help me and provided exceptional customer service. The staff at the lounge was really fluent in English - always so helpful and friendly. Tien, Vuong Linh and Ngoc Anh could call your name and remembered your coffee preference. Thuy always has a beautiful smile, I also want to give a thank you to Huy, Suong, Kim, Xuan An, Sang My Linh, Thu Hanh and Quynh Nhu. They are all incredibly nice - excellent service. Staff at lounge is very professionally trained; they dealt with any issue in a very efficient way. As a frequent traveler, I am very impressed with the service as you do not see a good team like this.

All was good. Staff was nice. The Kitchen was very good. There're several kind of food.The room is so-so not same as my expectation. But I'm sure next time you'll be the first choice for me. Oh! I like you roof top bar. Quiet and fantastic view from there.

Renaissance Riverside Saigon Hotel has a superb location with a magnificent view of Saigon river and the nearby districts if you book the river view room, believe me, it's worth it! And much more than this, the entire hotel staff is very friendly, professional and always go an extra mile to help you if needed. Last but not least, the Club Lounge staff is very sincere, care, and always ready for anything you need. You can be sure that you will feel
