      A trip outside of the city...in the city”

      Beautiful rooms. Like a photography studio. The deck overlooking the water is small and very relaxing at sundown. Go out to eat at one of the many restaurants not far from the hotel, must take a motorbike, bicycle, or call a cab. The respirated is very quiet at night. It feels like I am in some place that I had to travel far to get to. Only issue is is that the finding the place is difficult for taxis from district 1. Have the resorts telephone number handy so that they can give the driver directions

      Instead of leaving the city, I enjoy some beautiful moments of calm at this comfortable and friendly hotel in District 2. Great for a quick break from a busy schedule, for a change of scenery from high-paced Ho Chi Minh City. The rooms are well-decorated and comfortable, the setting is surprisingly natural - perfect for a romantic weekend.

      Fabulous ”

      I don’t really want to tell people about it because it was so fabulous. Some other reviewers have been critical about the fact that the food is brought in and not prepared at River Cottage but this wasn’t a problem for me. One - the food was great. Two - it comes from Snap Cafe which is a two minute walk away. Snap is also a really nice place to go and eat! All in this was excellent. For HCMC it was remarkably quiet as in it was actually quiet (on Sunday morning). This city is always noisy and that Sunday morning was about the quietest I’ve experienced since I’ve been here.

      I chose the Riverside Cottage because I was looking for a quiet place to do some writing. It turned out to be a perfect choice. Located right on the riverbank amidst lush green trees, this place feels like an island. Everything is tastefully decorated with attention to detail, the staff are very helpful. I could hear some noise from the ships' engines, but used ear plugs and it was fine. Neither the hotel, nor the area (Thao Dien is full of Western restaurants and popular with ex-pats) really feel like Saigon, though downtown is easily accessible by motorbike/taxi and abut 20 minutes away.

      River Cottage is a very comfortable and peaceful accommodation in busy Saigon. While River Cottage is not at the centre of most things that interest visitors, especially first timers to the city, it is an easy taxi or Grab ride to District 1. Ideal for those who have a few days just to relax and enjoy all that is available in District 2. Nice rooms, garden and great views of the river.

      I have to share the private area with out-side people Typically, the restaurant full of people during the period we need so we have to stay and wait at room until out side people left. And the price of restaurant i have to pay the same with out side people.
