Where to stay in Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh Accommodation

Vacationers browsing Ho Chi Minh for accommodation can utilise our site and turn the researching into a hassle-free experience, leaving more time for you to plan the itinerary. The city of Ho Chi Minh is just packed with history and rich with culture, creating an enriching trip for any traveller.

Attractions here are pretty diverse and culture-driven, such as the Reunification Palace which is mostly left untouched since the war ended in 1975. Then you have the War Remnants Museum and Museum of Vietnam History, all sharing in-depth knowledge on the past of Vietnam. There are also plenty of religious sites and the architectural wonder that is Saigon Skydeck for those seeking the ultimate view in Ho Chi Minh.

Things to see
The Reunification Palace is one of those places that can actually be described as living history. Once you walk in, you’ll immediately feel like you’re in a time warp that has sent you back into the 60s, with untouched decor and artefacts found all over the palace. Visit rooms like the recreation room and basement, and you’ll feel this surreal atmosphere created by the largely untouched furniture and equipment that were there during the war itself. On the palace grounds, you’ll also see tank 843, which is the vehicle that ended the war by crashing through the palace gate.

For culture and history buffs, there is quite a handful of religious sites to explore. The Central Mosque is one of the 12 mosques in the city, with architecture that reflects the early 1900s, from when it was built. The cool stone floors make it a great resting spot and like any place of worship, appropriate dress codes are required before entering. You’ll also find the Notre Dame Cathedral and at least 3 other pagodas to visit within the city.

Hotels in Ho Chi Minh
Visitors coming down with the young ones will be glad to know that family hotels in Ho Chi Minh are plenty. The accommodations here are decent to say the least, providing reasonable prices for comfortable rooms and amenities. Like most countries, there are different options to accommodate various budgets, and the range includes budget inns, simple hotels, hostels, boutique hotels and 5 star establishments. Some of the budget accommodations provide cable TV and WiFi, so it’s really worth checking them out if you’re not in the mood to splurge.

Where to stay
The heart of the city is pretty much a hotspot for tourism and the main attractions can be found rather close to one another. Getting from one place to another by foot is relatively easy and for those willing to give it a shot, you can try renting a scooter. The accommodation options can be found scattered across the city, though Pham Ngu Lao in District 1 is where you can find several choices for the budget options. The budget hotels here provide basic rooms with perks like air conditioning, TV, a fridge, free breakfast, free wifi and so on, depending on which hotel it is. There are also lavishly done up hotels in District 1, which includes brands like Hyatt, Sheraton and Sofitel. It’s relatively easy to find food within the city, and choices include burger joints, simple cafes, tasty beef noodles and for those looking to splurge, there are gourmet restaurants serving all kinds of cuisines.

How to get to Ho Chi Minh
Tan Son Nhat is the international gateway into Ho Chi Minh by plane. All international flights are served in the first terminal while domestic flights are served in the other terminal. The cheapest way to get into the city is by the airport bus service though there are plenty of taxis for those seeking faster transport. The airport is only 8 km from the heart of the city so travelling time will be brief.
