25-storey Liberty Central Saigon Riverside Hotel, built on the scenic esplanade of Saigon River, impresses one with an elegant look even from a distance. Its spacious foyer in light beige and champagne colours with vibrant and stylish interior design and futuristic satelite lounge chairs look sparklingly refreshing. After a quick check-in, I was standing by the floor-to-ceiling panorama windows, watching the poetic vista of the chocolate-coloured waters of the Saigon River with a picturesque quay and a line of leisure vessels at anchor. The wide plane of a neighbouring residential quarter, full of green groves stretching across the river pleased the eye and was surprising to observe from a hotel situated in the very centre of bustling metropolis of Saigon, at half minute walk to far-famed Dong Khoi Street.
The room featured tasteful modern design with a fine combination of hazel, beige and deep blue tones and minimalistic yet cosy furniture, all together looking very spacious. Wide-screen LCD home cinema-size TV panels and glass wall bathrooms were also present to add hi-tech touches to the room.
Liberty Central Saigon Riverside Hotel offers a wide choice of well-appointed and upscale accommodation to fit any taste. The hotel interiors boast a refreshingly dynamic yet peaceful ambience with cosy and stylish sitting areas, tastefully-appointed furnishing and creative design solutions to fit both leisure and business travellers.
As for in-house facilities Liberty Central Saigon Riverside Hotel offers a lot of options for pleasantly surprising and impressive experiences to pamper all the senses: fine gastronomy and gourmet sessions at Bistro café and Wine bar on the beautifully designed mezanine floor or at the Central restaurant with contemporary decor and three exquisite daily buffets, great breakfasts and evening Cocktail Buffet free service at Club lounge for business travellers on the 23rd floor, renowned wines and a plethora of cocktails at the Vertical sky bar on the rooftop with views over Ho Chi Minh City at night and open swimming pool contemplating the sunset from the rooftop deck with iced coffee or glass of wine in hand amid orchids in full blossom can also become one of the highlights of one’s stay in Saigon. Aesthetic delights of spectacular city panoramas are also available at hotel health and spa centre fully equipped with state-of-the-art fitness machines, an excellent option to do an intensive or light workout after gourmet sessions or to pamper oneself after a busy day of visiting city sites. The spa centre offers an extensive menu of massages and outstanding sauna and steam bath private rooms with the bathtub set right by the panoramic window.
