Budget 3 Star Hotel in Nguyen Hue Street

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 3, 2012

The Huge Saigon Tourist Conglomerate owns a number of Restaurants, Bars, Tours and Hotels in Saigon and in Other parts of Vietnam ranging from the luxe like the Rex Hotel and Sheraton Saigon to the mid price like the Palace Hotel and Bong Sen Hotel and the Budget like the Oscar Hotel. Oscar Hotel is located in the center of District 1 at the Nguyen Hue Street and is walking distance to most local attractions like Dong Khoi Street, Municipal Opera, Rex Hotel, Benh Thanh Market, Notre Dame Cathedral and Bitexco Financial Tower. Oscar Saigon Hotel (formerly Century Saigon Hotel), is a three star international business hotel, is of French colonial style architecture which has been recently renovated. Its eleven floors offer 107 rooms and suites. It has one restaurant (the 68th at the top floor and one bar).

Unique Quality: The have a rather small sized and bland regular rooms and a small bathroom (both smoking and non smoking rooms are available) but are comfortable and if you are of the no frills type and just use the hotel room as a time for sleeping, then this will just be fine. Plus, the hotel comes with the standard amenities like: 24 room service, hot & cold water, a mini fridge, coffee and tea, free bottled water, buffet breakfast at their restuarant at the 68th restaurant at the top (which serves a large selection of local vietnamese and international dishes), concierge, safety deposit boxes in the room, fitness center garden, but the best deal here is the complimentary high speed WIFI which we used frequently.

check in is at 3:00 pm and check out is 12:00 pm.

Directions: 68A Nguyen Hue Boulevard, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

As of June 2010, and at $57+/night (3 night discount), this hotel was a great value. Of course there are nicer hotels in the area if you're spending your company's money. If, however, you are on your own budget (like I am), I do not think you would be disappointed in it (if you are single or with family).

Friendly doormen (speaking conversational English), friendly enough reception (not perfect English but okay). Room service acceptable and exceptional for Asia (repeated my order to me without me having to ask), and the "western" food that I ordered was acceptable. The breakfast buffet is nice enough with a wide variety of selections (including your omelets made to order). Two small bottles of drinking water were complimentary.

I had the Oscar Deluxe room number 207. I found the room to be clean, in good condition, spacious enough, and quiet (except for the inevitable neighbor's door slamming shut during the early morning). The TV and electric outlets worked fine (hot water boiler for coffee, hair dryer, spare outlet for hand phone recharge, etc). Bedding was clean and in good condition. A/C worked great.

My stay was from a Friday to Monday there without any complaints.

At checkout, my bill showed what appeared to be a daily charge for Internet service, but that is only part of the way they describe the room and its rate (my apologies to the lady at checkout for thinking I was being charged for Internet).

Unique Quality: Free WiFi throughout hotel (lobby, restaurant, room). No need for a password ('key') which avoids the usual hassle of getting a working password.

They also have two freebie Internet computers in the lobby.

Not really a "unique quality", but good to know: Bathrooms supplies include hair dryer, bar soap, liquid bubble bath and shampoo, even wash cloths (a rarity in Asia), no toothbrush or tooth paste (acceptable).

Robes and slippers are furnished.

Safe Deposit box in closet (appears to accommodate a laptop perhaps).

Actual pork bacon served (another rarity in Asia). It's not your packaged States variety but okay.

Taxis usually waiting conveniently just outside the front door (I opted to hire a local motobike driver standing on the corner instead - faster travel and certainly much more exciting).

No smoking in the lobby or the lobby bar.

Bar drinks are affordable for a hotel bar.

See my profile to better understand my viewpoint (semi-retired single American male on historical tour).

Directions: District 1 (central enough to most of the places I personally wanted to visit - museums, famous and infamous bars, etc)

Oscar Saigon Hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 15, 2003

Booked the Oscar Saigon Hotel through a travel agent in Bangkok. It is located in the more upscale area in District 1 along Nguyen Hue Street and just blocks from the Historical Museum. Good hotel for those not looking for backpacker or budget accommodations.

Could get a better room rate through the Internet or at the tourism booth at the airport. (The picture is courtesy of Asiatravel.com)

Outside Nguyen Hue Street hotels, there will probably be children selling all sorts of souvenirs. This doesn't occur as often in the backpackers' area. During my stay, there were a couple of the cutest little girls selling postcards, travel books (the copied Lonely Planet guides weren't bad for $2 or $3), picture cards. What surprised me most were that they spoke near fluent English and pushed the hard sell of 'I'm selling these to support my family.' Needlesstosay, we wound up buying more than our share of souvenirs.

Unique Quality: Larger, more upscale hotels like the Oscar Saigon is the place to exchange money. As in other countries, the rates are better for higher denominated bills such as $50 and $100 instead of $10 and $20.

Its obvious but don't exchange $1 and $5, prices in Vietnam are quoted in U.S. dollars especially for tourists.
