Liberty Central Saigon Riverside Hotel

For the new year, the financier a.k.a. the husband, decided to book a room at the Liberty Central Saigon Riverside Hotel along Ton Duc Thang. This hotel has been in operation for maybe over a year.

In the Philippines, we could see fireworks everywhere during the new year. There really are no rules except of course on deadly fireworks. But otherwise, every household can buy fireworks (so you don’t have to wonder why the ER is full during the new year or there are a number of fire incidents).

In Vietnam, this is government-regulated so there are some designated areas only. The nearest one to us is in District 1. This was also a perfect opportunity for that “staycation”.  😛

Our room was just right for our family which probably the same size as our hotel room in Pullman last year.

Not fond of toilets with glass walls though. 😛

Liberty Central had the perfect view of the fireworks (but of course also expensive during that time) and the amenities are pretty good too.

We’ve tried the pool at the rooftop which had a great view of the river too. So this would have been the ideal spot to watch the fireworks.

It would have been nice to try out their equipment.

Breakfast was at the Executive Lounge which was great for our family. Because the area was pretty small, I didn’t have to worry where my 3 year old was off to.

But it would be great if we tried the main restaurant. There wasn’t a whole lot of choices in the lounge.

The staff was topnotch and we truly enjoyed our stay! Wish we could have stayed longer!
