5 star hotel
Sumptuously decorated with traditional Vietnamese-style furniture and objets d'art, this is the jewel in Saigon's hotel crown, matching a prime location opposite the Opera House with exemplary service, fastidiously a...
The location is a bit stranded for sightseers, but this is one of HCMC's most supreme hotels, with roomy minimalist accommodation, faultless service and an obsessive attention to detail.
3 star hotel
Down a peaceful lane off a busy arterial route, friendly Ma Maison is halfway between the airport and the city centre, and partly in the French countryside, decor-wise...
1 star hotel
The original and by far the best of the three hotels run by the welcoming Madame Cuc and her friendly and fantastic staff. Rooms are clean and spacious.
The Rex has recently had an overhaul, propelling it into the five-star bracket, although this may be in part down to generosity towards the government owners Saigon Tourist...
Look beyond the overblown lobby to attractive green and cream shaded corridors and lovingly presented, light, bright rooms with a slight deco feel...
Modern and tasteful without falling into generic blandness, the Intercontintental is a welcome addition to Saigon’s ever-expanding range of luxury establishments...
Long-running government place with great location. Popular with tour groups, so book ahead.
The swish entrance, with its aquaria and elegant design, to this three-star hotel is proof of the ongoing gentrification of the PNL area. The dark-wood rooms are clean and modern, with safes and writing desks...
A faded, lacklustre '90s feel clings to the lobby, but rooms are spiffing at this cordial hotel and staff are particularly helpful and obliging.
2 star hotel
From the ao dai -clad girl at reception to the marble sheen and swishly presented rooms, there's more than just a veneer of class at Saigon 3, and the alley location is off the noisy main drag...
Mere metres away from Ben Thanh Market, this is another friendly mid-tier option. Windowless rooms are cheaper and quieter.
Accessed through a jewellery shop, this smart five-floor, 43-room boutique hotel at the heart of town is a good choice, with attractive discounts...
Eschewing the nanna-ish connotations of its name, Lavender drapes itself stylishly in creamy marble and muted tones. The location, right by Ben Thanh Market, is excellent if potentially noisy.
Its grand 1920s bones might hark back to better days, but the Riverside still delivers excellent value for money for a prime location.
Another tall and skinny mini-hotel, this one has a modern reception staffed by staff wearing red ao dai . A lift ascends to the tidy rooms, the cheaper of which are small and windowless.
Tall and thin, with three rooms on each floor, a roof terrace and charming service, Giang Son’s sole downer is that there’s no lift. Consider upgrading to a room with window.
Unlike its sister which sits around the corner on busy Bui Vien, this eight-room mini-hotel lurks down a back lane. The ground floor is taken up by a restaurant, giving it more of a guesthouse feel...
An old favourite, this welcoming hotel is handy for dozens of restaurants and bars on the popular Le Thanh Ton and Hai Ba Trung strips...
Slunk down a quiet alley off Ð Cong Quynh, immediately south of Ð Bui Vien, this trim, comfy and spacious hotel exudes a pea-green theme, although the tiled rooms are clean and, defiantly, not very green at all.
This bright and friendly guesthouse has 19 clean and well-presented rooms with all mod-cons, a rooftop terrace decorated with blooming orchids and a lift. It's just east and across the road from the Blue River Hotel.
Son of Giang Son some may say, with a more contemporary finish. Two double rooms come with balcony and staff are excellent. No lift.
