Saigon is a popular tourist destination, and for good reason. There’s plenty to do there, including visiting the famous District 3, eating all kinds of delicious foods, and sightseeing to your heart’s content. While all of these activities are the primary reason why you want to visit Saigon, it’s also important to take into consideration where you will be staying.
Accommodations may be the least of your worries but at the end of a long day of tourism, you’ll want somewhere comfortable to rest your head for the night.
Things to Consider When Looking for a Hotel
If you’re looking for a Saigon hotel (known as Khách sạn Sài Gòn in Vietnamese), there are several things to take into consideration before booking your stay. For one, you’ll want a hotel that is close to the places you’ll be visiting and spending time in the most. This reduces the need for transportation and gives you more time to explore the city without having to spend it in cabs all day. Check for hotels that are close to new beer pubs, fusion restaurants, boutique shops and coffeehouses, and more.
Another thing to consider is comfort. This is probably one of the most important things to look for in a hotel. Look for rooms that are clean, are decently sized, and contain amenities such as air conditioning, a TV, windows, blinds, a phone, and clean, soft sheets and pillows. When you need a break from all your travels, these are things that you’ll really come to appreciate at the end of the day.
Aside from the standard amenities, many hotels will also offer special amenities that not other hotels have to offer. Many hotels offer a multifunctional room where you can hang out and meet new people or listen to music played by a local DJ with a drink in hand.
At some point or another you’ll get hungry but won’t be in the mood to head out anywhere and look for a bite. Luckily, many luxury hotels feature cafes and grab-and-go food carts where you can get a snack when you don’t feel like leaving the hotel. Whether it’s a cup of coffee or a sandwich, these in-house cafes typically have a lot to offer their guests.
When looking for a place to stay in Saigon, be sure to do the proper research to find a place that you’ll be satisfied with throughout your stay.
