    clean friendly accomodation

    by

    first hotel was a clean friendly place. We had a quiet room, breakfast was nothing special consisting of fried eggs and bread or 2 minute noodles which was expected for $12US dollars a night. The travel agent next to the front desk was very helpful, we planned most of our trip around saigon from there.

    This place is not for everyone, but I liked it and will tell you why. First up the value is excellent. We paid only 50USD a night after booking with a local travel agent. Second, it's the quietest hotel in Vietnam. It's down a side street that is both wide and relatively tranquil - very rare in VN. On top of this they put double glazing on the windows which makes the rooms practically soundproof. There is a fantastic Korean restaurant in the lobby, and the complimentary breakfast in the main hotel restaurant was respectable. For people not used to Vietnam the location and atmosphere might be a bit weird. But for travelers who don't want to stay in their cultural bubbles it's a great chance to interact with the local middle class, as the facilities surrounding the hotel are popular with people who live in the area. You don't feel like a tourist here and there are none of the usual tourist hassles in this area. Local people are infinitely more open and friendly in this non-central location than down in district one.

    No doubt the massage parlour is sleazy, but hey, it's Vietnam. My eldery father got propositioned by the masseuse in the five star Caravelle! Just steer clear of massage here is my advice.

    Unique Quality: Quiet, new rooms, great value, interseting local feeling

    Directions: Tan Binh District, handy to airport

    A Good hotel Near the Airport

    by

    I was in Saigon (I hate the political name HCM) for the night between a flight from Danang and one going to Bangkok. I thought I would try this hotel for its proximity to the airport, good price and good ratings. I was not disappointed!

    Unique Quality: The First Hotel offers good room with free wireless internet in your room, entertainment center across the street, and a good breakfast for a reasonable price. However, I would stay in a district 1 hotel if I were not just waiting for a plane, because there is nothing to see in the local area. If you are in transit, this is your place for the night!

    Directions: Near the airport, 5 Min.
