"Nice hotel close to the waterfront and the locals."
The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Their breakfast served is good. The hotel is very spacious and I enjoyed the close proximity to the Vietnamese homes/shops and people. There is a popular crab restaurant nearby which I missed. Crossing any streets can be frightening because motorists ride their vehicles anyhow they choose. Overall, Saigon Domaine Luxury Residences is a good choice.

This was my third visit to HCMC but my first time at Riverside Apartments - my only regret is not trying the place earlier!
The location is in District 2 and while the taxi drivers sometimes have a problem finding it, it is worth the wait and is within easy reach of the central HCMS, District 1. In any case, once settled in, the resort has a scheduled boat and bus service to both shopping facilities or to the centre of HCMC by river. Taxi transfer to/from the airport is 15USD. There is a 24 hr taxi rank within the facility with many coffee shops and restaurants just a short walk away.
This is an apart-hotel situated right on the Saigon River with beautiful gardens, sports facilities, a swimming pool, tennis courts, gym and apartments that, while aging somewhat, are very clean and well maintained with a basic supply of crockery depending on room size (1-2 bedroom available). Many of the apartments are long term leases, often to expatriates assigned to HCMC, so there is quite a family friendly feel to the place which also has a mini market, coffee shop, spa and public laundry area increasing the community feel of the facility.
Staff cannot be helpful enough and go out of their way to please. The only issue I had to work around was that they were fairly strict about the timing of departures but had a luggage storage facility to help out. With a full service restaurant on site, the facility is largely self contained and very secure - great for a longer stay.
My first time in HCMC and the apartments were easy to find. After settling in the place was found to be like home from home with spacious bedrooms and living areas. Throughout the apartment was clean and was maintained this way by housekeeping during our stay. The bowl of fruit as a welcoming gesture was a nice touch and well appreciated. The staff were helpful once they understood what was requested.There were five of us in the party, 3 adults and 2 kids and everyone enjoyed their stay in the apartment.
