Renaissance Riverside Saigon Hotel

saigon riverside

Eating in hotels can be a bit boring because there are so many which serve acceptable food in a very formal atmosphere. The Riverside Cafe in Saigon where I went recently with my friends is great, quite expensive compared to other places but worth the money. There are lots of options to choose: salads, main courses and desserts are available from the international buffet. A soft drink and water are included.

Sit on a comfortable chair in the non-smoking area to make your meal more enjoyable. Plates are changed after each serving which is good and the staff are friendly, beautifully attired and well trained.

I also went to an amazing bar on the 5th floor called the Atrium Lounge. I ordered the best Mojito ever at this bar and was really pleased with the very relaxing music. It was a nice surprise. It’s not as expensive as I thought either, and all long drinks and cocktails start from $6. For a special occasion or a drink before a meal, I recommend this place. Remember, it's on the 5th floor.

Six dollars is a real good price for a drink in such an establishment in the U.S.

Very elegant looking place. What sort of food do they have?

Mmmm, that Mojito looks good enough to merit a trip to Saigon:)

The hotel has a few restaurants but we were in the cafe on the first floor. It was an international buffet.

The mojito's are really refreshing.

The Renaissance is a fancy hotel. We just stayed in one recently, but we used our Marriott points.

The writer is totally right, and there is no skepticism.
