Just outside District 1, Ho Chi Minh City’s central hub, the Hotel des Arts is a stylish newcomer to the city’s luxe hotel scene. The beautiful lobby features birdcage chandeliers, mammoth floor-to-ceiling windows and a soothing cream and jade color scheme. Fuel up for a day of exploring at the breakfast buffet in the Saigon Kitchen, an all-day restaurant that serves Vietnamese specialties. In the afternoon head back to your sleek white guestroom, decked out with dark furnishings and parquet floors. The chunky windows and plentiful mirrors spread the natural light around. Cool off with a dip in the rooftop pool, or splurge on a treatment at the spa, before dinner on the 23rd floor at the Social Club, the hotel’s buzzy restaurant and bar.
In the Area
Two things dominate Ho Chi Minh City: delicious food and motorbikes (it’s estimated that some 6 million scooters cruise the city). Experience both on a Back of the Bike Street Food Tour. Young, talkative locals (who speak excellent English) will strap you to the back of their bikes — which are bright red, so other drivers are sure to see you — and zip through the sea of motorbikes to find some of the city’s best street food (Vietnamese pancakes, grilled pork skewers and crab soup are all on offer). Countless tailors in the city custom-make clothes in just a couple of days; H&D Tailor is reliable for suits and shirts, while Phi Phi is a good bet for dresses. After that, get pampered at My Spa; it’s well known for soothing hot stone massages and attentive service (at bargain basement prices).
How to Get There
Our stay at MGallery Saigon was memorable and everything was perfect from our early arrival to our departure. Great staff which has been really accommodating with us, as we arrived very early in the morning, they made us feel comfortable and told us we could relax a bit in a library before heading to the rooftop pool. We ended up getting the room much earlier than expected,wich was definitely appreciated.
We came to Saigon to celebrate a birthday, and when we returned to the room in the evening, the staff had prepared a delicious chocolate cake together with berries and a best wishes card - that was really a nice surprise!
The hotel itself has a beautiful colonial style, a wonderful rooftop pool and bar where you can enjoy Saigon' skyline
Breakfast was plentiful and everything was tasty, congrats on the staff also!
Finally location is perfect, in the city center, and most sights are reachable by foot - or for only 1-2 US by taxi.
Definitely a lovely venue for any trip to Saigon, whether leisure or business: I'd definitely return and recommend it to anyone!
Very nice and cozy hotel. Near town. Roof top pool. Nice roof top bar. Good breakfast. Nice steak restaurant. Good lobby lounge. Room is good size. Bed is comfortable. Walking distance to cathedral, diamond shopping mall. 5-10 mins taxi to city center.
A truly memorable stay with genuine hospitality and beautifully appointed rooms. Hotel des Arts management have to be commended on the quality of staff they have working for them.
The staff always made me feel "at home", with certain staff members even greeting me by my name. No request was ever too difficult and they were always one step ahead to meet my request.
A big thank you to Nhut (Bell Captain) and the other front of house staff. You are a great asset to the Accor Groupt. Looking forward to a return visit.
Bed was big and comfortable.
Room was average in size, a bit expensive for the size, actually.
I am not a fan of the shower as they had an open space set up and the shower door does not shut properly so floor in the room gets a bit wet when I shower.
Staff were friendly.
Rooftop bar with pool was nice but can get super crowded at night.
- Rooftop pool had awesome views
- Breakfast buffet had a huge spread
- Service was excellent
- Really comfortable beds and pillows
Make sure you're comfortable with whoever you're staying with in the same room. Everything's very open.
10/5 will go back again.
