Good Food, Nice Place

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 26, 2007

To top off the above average stay in the hotel, they provided us with complimentary breakfast.

There were the regular items like corn flakes, ham, bacon, fried rice, sausages etc. There was even a staff who would stand behind a little stove to cook you piping hot scrambled eggs, omelette or sunny-side ups.

Unique Quality: But what really made me look forward to breakfast were the specials and it was only for hotel guests. Everyday, Jac and I would order their meat porridge. emmm...they'd serve us in a pretty big bowl, but everytime, we would finished the entire bowl.

You can also choose other delicious "specials" such as roasted meat noodle, chicken noodle and wanton soup.

The hotel is out of District 1 (Good if you want a bit less noise but still close enough to the central area). Not many facilities (i.e. There's no swimming pool), but since Jac & I were out most of the time, it did not really bother us.

The room is clean and tidy and the hotel staff are pretty friendly. Definitely value for money and not too bad a hotel to stay in.

Rooms are found between 4th to 7th floor. For this particular hotel, try to stay on the middle floor (i.e. 5th and 6th floor) so that you're not so close to ground level, while steering clear of the noise from the Karaoke on the 8th floor.

Unique Quality: The hotel provides guests with daily serving of fruits in their rooms. Really appreciate their effort especially after a long tiring day. The hotel also has a wide selection of cable channels for the tv control freak!

Directions: Opposite Tao Dan Park and a short walk to the War Remnants Museum and the Reunification Palace.

My stay in Saigon Star Hotel during my trip to HCMC in May 2006 was an enjoyable one! I booked the rooms through Asiarooms & paid US$26 per night for a twin/double room, which I believed is value for money. All the 8 of us that stayed there agreed with me. With free breakfast, complimentary fruits, free use of steam bath & suana during your stay there! This is the hotel if you don't wanna spend too much on accommodation, but also, don't wish to stay in a hostel.

Their service was excellent! The receptionist that attended to us was friendly & attended to whatever needs we have. On the downside, the hotel's located in District 3, near the War Remnants Museum. So, it's kinda out from the city area. Nevertheless, taking a cab down is always recommended. The hotel is just 5 minutes to the heart of Ho Chi Minh City and 20 minutes to Tan Son Nhat International Airport. Also, try to request for a higher floor room during the booking process as the hotel's situated next to the road. So, it might get a little noisy at night. But not much of a problem for me, as I was staying on the 6th floor that time.

All in all, Saigon Star is truly a hotel that I would highly recommend! Definitely the hotel I'll stay in during my next visit to HCMC.

Directions: Opposite the City Cultural Park
