Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) has some great value hotels. But there are many different areas to stay in the city so it can be hard at first to choose the best ones.
This guide is designed to help ‘Bangkok 112’ Subscribers when booking hotels in Saigon. There are no cookies in the links below, so if you do choose a hotel from this list then please consider clicking from the link below and booking straight through. This will be at no extra cost to you, and is win/win as any commission will go straight back into improving Bangkok 112 YouTube videos and maintaining this website. Thank you for your support and I hope that this information will be of use to you.
MUST READ: There are no true ‘guest friendly’ hotels in Saigon. This is due to the communist government having a law that states no local female can be a visitor to a hotel room with a foreigner after 10pm unless they are married (probably dates all the way back to the Vietnam war). The reality is in 2017 everything is becoming more relaxed and hotels don’t usually enforce this law.
I would say though to be extra polite with the reception and security at night, as they have the discretion to allow visitors to your hotel room. If you do have problems getting a lady back to your room, you can either take her to a short time hotel (she will know where), or if you’re getting shacked up together for a few days then simply check her into your hotel in the daytime.
I always recommend to stay in a hotel within walking distance to Bui Vien street, as this is the most convenient location and other parts of the city are a short taxi / mototaxi ride away. As always in Asia, make sure you check 2 in the people staying in the room when booking.
