Best Hotels to stay in Ho Chi Minh city


Wondering where to stay in Ho Chi Minh City? Our guide to Saigon’s districts and the best hotels in each area can help you get the most out of your stay.


Vietnam’s commercial capital and largest city, Ho Chi Minh City (or Saigon, as it’s known to most locals) is divided into 24 districts and has a population of more than eight million.


Despite its large population, Ho Chi Minh City’s centre is dense and compact, making it easy to stay close to the action.


As a visitor to Ho Chi Minh City, you’ll want to stay either in District 1, which is where you’ll find almost all of the city’s cultural, historical and commercial attractions, or in District 3, which is a cheaper, more “local” district close to the city centre.


1. District 1 (Nguyen Hue/Dong Khoi)

  • The Nguyen Hue/Dong Khoi area is the heart of District 1. This is where you’ll find Ho Chi Minh City’s newest shopping malls, luxury boutiques and high-end restaurants. It’s also where you’ll see most of the city’s modern highrises, such as the ultra-modern Bitexco Financial Tower.
  • Almost all of Ho Chi Minh City’s luxury hotels are located in this area. The area around Nguyen Hue in particular is home to a selection of classic luxury hotels built during the French colonial era and made famous during the Vietnam War, such as the Rex, Majestic and Continental.
  • Nguyen Hue and Dong Khoi also have a good selection of modern hotels, from the Park Hyatt to the ultra-luxury Reverie Saigon. If you’re looking for a five star place to stay, this is the area that you’ll want to look in.
  • The Nguyen Hue/Dong Khoi area has a great selection of cafés and restaurants, ranging from Vietnamese food to Western dining and high-end coffee. It’s also a short walk from Ho Chi Minh City’s Japantown area, which offers a good selection of bars and places to eat.
  • Since this is the absolute centre of Saigon, expect to pay slightly higher prices than you would in a more “local” neighbourhood.
Luxury Hotels in Nguyen Hue/Dong Khoi

The Reverie Saigon
Arguably Vietnam’s most luxurious hotel, The Reverie Saigon offers opulent rooms with ornate designer furniture and spectacular views over District 1. A perfect choice if you want to indulge and treat yourself while in Ho Chi Minh City.

Park Hyatt Saigon
Equally as luxurious as The Reverie but more elegant and understated, the Park Hyatt Saigon offers a great selection of high-end rooms and suites with world class facilities.

Continental Hotel Saigon
Saigon’s oldest luxury hotel, the Continental Hotel Saigon has one of the best locations in the city and a great selection of rooms that, although dated by modern standards, offer an exciting trip back in time to the colonial Saigon of the 1920s.

Sunny Serviced Apartment
This mid-priced serviced apartment building on Le Thanh Ton offers a great selection of rooms with kitchens and cooking equipment, plus one of the best locations in the city for people that want to be close to the Dong Khoi area and Japantown.

Budget Hotels in Nguyen Hue/Dong Khoi

Roseland Inn Hotel
Located on Hai Ba Trung, this budget hotel is a short distance from Dong Khoi, Nguyen Hue and other major shopping streets. Rooms are clean and simply decorated, offering great value in an area better known for luxury than good deals.

2. District 1 (Pham Ngu Lao/Bui Vien)

  • Pham Ngu Lao is Saigon’s backpacker district — a bustling, busy area near the centre of District 1 that offers a great range of cheap hotels and hostels. If you’re visiting Saigon on a budget and want to be close to the backpacker nightlife, this is the place to stay.
  • Pham Ngu Lao Street itself is less of an accommodation hotspot than it once was. Today, most of the area’s budget hotels and bars can be found on Bui Vien — a short street that acts as Ho Chi Minh City’s equivalent to Khao San Road.
  • This area is busy, exciting and noisy, making it far from ideal if you’re looking for a peaceful and quiet place to stay. However, if you want to be right in the middle of backpacker nightlife, there’s no better area to be in Saigon.
Luxury Hotels in Pham Ngu Lao

Pullman Saigon Centre
The only luxury hotel in the Pham Ngu Lao area, the Pullman Saigon Centre is located on Tran Hung Dao, a short walk away from Pham Ngu Lao and a quick taxi ride into Nguyen Hue, Dong Khoi and other popular shopping streets.

Liberty Saigon Greenview
Located right on Pham Ngu Lao, Liberty Saigon Greenview is a comfortable three star hotel with clean, modern rooms and a much quieter atmosphere than hotels on nearby Bui Vien

Elios Hotel
Another three star hotel, Elios Hotel offers modern rooms, a great spa and pleasant views over the District 1 skyline, making it a great option if you’re seeking comfort in Saigon’s backpacker area.

Meraki Hotel
This two star hotel on Bui Vien offers great value for money and a convenient location close to nearby restaurants, cafés and bars. While the noise level isn’t zero, it’s more tolerable than in other hotels on Bui Vien.

3. District 3

  • Ho Chi Minh City’s District 3 is close to the centre of Saigon but offers a more local, Vietnamese feel. You’ll find fewer Western restaurants and bars here, with a greater selection of local coffee shops and pho restaurants.
  • Since District 3 has a more local feel and attracts fewer tourists, it’s a great place to find budget accommodation. If you’re on a tight budget and want to avoid the hustle and bustle of Bui Vien, this is a great place to check into a clean, comfortable and affordable hotel or guesthouse.
  • It takes five to 10 minutes to get into District 1 from District 3, meaning you’re never far from the central city.

Oakwood Apartments Ho Chi Minh City
Oakwood Apartments offers modern, spacious serviced apartments in a great location less than 10 minutes from District 1 by taxi. A great choice for long-term visitors.

Located on a quiet lane off Nguyen Dinh Chieu, this family-owned hotel offers clean, simple and comfortable rooms in a convenient location less than 10 minutes from District 1.

Ms. Yang Homestay
This friendly local guesthouse on Nguyen Thi Minh Khai is a favourite of backpackers seeking a quieter, more peaceful location than nearby Bui Vien. Rooms are simple, clean and comfortable, with fair pricing that offers great value for money.
