Liberty Central Saigon Riverside Hotel

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

The hotel

When you’ve got a prime spot along Saigon River, it’d be wrong not to maximise on it. That’s why almost everything at Liberty Central Saigon Riverside Hotel has a river view. There’s the dining and drinking, with The Bistro and Central Restaurant both looking out over the water, and its rooftop bar accompanying its cocktails and special salsa and jazz nights with seemingly endless city views. There’s the gym, laying on river views as you work out. And there’s the swanky rooftop pool, where you can swim right up to a glass wall for the ultimate riverside vistas: it’s even open until midnight for evening dips. If you can tear your eyes from the views, you’ll discover this modern hotel’s also got a top District 1 location, near nightlife and markets.

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon.

However, the rooftop pool really saves this place, as it’s absolutely fantastic with amazing views over the river and the city. Breakfast here is also very good with a wide selection. Read less

My partner and I booked this hotel for July 2020 to travel to Vietnam for our friend‘s wedding. Due to the current situation surrounding Covid-19 and travel restrictions, the wedding had to be cancelled and the hotel is refusing to refund the money for the booking instead saying there’s still lots of time until July so things might change. Well they won’t - the wedding is cancelled. I have never experienced such lack of compassion and empathy and it is my understanding that the manager at Liberty Central made this final decision. Everyone is struggling right now, travellers and hotels alike. This hotel is taking advantage of this situation by refusing refunds and withholding money. I don‘t suggest you support a hotel that treats customers like this. Read less

We stayed for three nights and the hotel was the perfect base to explore the city from. Most attractions are within walking distance. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The rooftop pool was great especially for an early morning swim to watch the city wake up. The bar there was also good, especially at happy hour. Overall a great stay.
