Bottom Line

This modern city hotel offers an upscale stay in a central riverside location within walking distance of major attractions and corporate offices. Rooms are stylish and bright, with floor-to-ceiling windows (some offering panoramic river views), sleek glass-enclosed bathrooms, modern amenities, and free Wi-Fi. The hotel offers several dining options, a small but modern fitness center, and extensive meeting space. But the highlights here are the luxe spa and beautiful rooftop deck, complete with an infinity pool and bar. Just note that some guests have complained of poor soundproofing, and that the main bar can get a little loud in the evening.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

A modern hotel popular among tourists and business travelers alike

The lobby of this modern luxury hotel, popular with business travelers, is stylish and sleek, with contemporary decor elements like wood accents and floor-to-ceiling windows

Housed in a glass tower overlooking the Saigon River, Liberty Central Saigon Riverside Hotel is a modern, stylish pick for business and leisure travelers. The lobby is contemporary and bright, with floor-to-ceiling windows, wood accents, and funky armchairs in dark upholstering that contrasts with the gleaming cream-colored floors. This fresh contemporary look continues in the rooms, all featuring large white headboards over dark accent walls, and sleek glass-enclosed bathrooms. Most common spaces offer striking river and city views, but the best vistas can be had from the rooftop deck, which is the hotel’s most popular spot throughout the day. In the morning, guests lounge by the infinity pool, and at night guests mingle with non-guests at Vertical Sky Bar while watching the sunset with drinks in their hands.

Liberty Central Saigon Riverside Hotel is a fantastic pick for design and luxury by the river; those looking to experience old Saigon could consider neighboring Hotel Majestic Saigon. Just note that rates are generally slightly higher there, and that the property is starting to show its age.

The Premier Riverview Room incorporates chic modern style elements, including white and blonde wooden furniture, dark accent walls, and an upscale headboard

The 170 rooms at Liberty Central Saigon Riverside Hotel are decorated in a chic modern style with large white headboards over dark accent walls, a mix of white and blonde wooden furniture, and laminate floors. Wall-mounted flat-screen TVs, air-conditioning, safes, minibars, free Wi-Fi, and electric kettles are all standard amenities. Bathrooms are sleek, with glass-enclosed showers overlooking the rooms (there are pull-down blinds for privacy), deep rectangular sinks with modern fittings, back-lit mirrors, and darker floor tiles; suites have large walk-in showers and separate deep soaking tubs, as well as wood-paneled accent walls in the master bedroom. Floor-to-ceiling windows let in lots of light and allow for panoramic river and city views from most rooms. Light sleepers may want to request rooms on higher floors, as street-facing units may get some traffic noise. Past guests have also complained of rooms lacking soundproofing.
