A part of the Marriott group of hotels, the Renaissance Saigon is wonderfully located beside the river and is close to all the major attractions of Ho Chi Minh City. I personally felt that the hotel did not live up to its reputation considering the fact that the rooms were run-down and tiny and the reception was slightly dismal. However, upon writing down my grievances, the manager immediately upgraded me and offered me complimentary WiFi and breakfast (all which I did not avail). Deluxe rooms come for about 150 USD for a night. Top Tip: Most five stars in HCMC are located around the riverside and gladly provide you a pick-up from the airport. If in case you do not have one, take a metered cab from a reputed company outside the airport (you will notice a queue for taxis) and the ride to the city which is around eight kilometres should cost you about 10 USD (210000 VND).
