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
Magnificent view from the room on the city. Centrally located. Friendly athmosphere. Excellent service. We did not like the open bathroom in the room. Unfortunately no indication was available when we booked the room.
The room I stayed in (on several occasions) is a bit smaller than hotel rooms in America but it is quite comfortable and quaint. The beds are super comfortable and everything is very clean and well kept. The hotel staff all speak English and go out of their way to be helpful. The restaurants are great too. I especially like the breakfast buffet. There is a good assortment of local dishes to sample. Personally I enjoy the fruits and pastries. I look forward to staying at the Hotel Des Arts again in the future.
I visited the hotel during the world cup final this July with some friends at the rooftop and social bar. We had a great moment. The entire staff was taking care of us and celebrated the victory with us. Beautiful view, nice swimming pool and great service.
I stay 200+ nights in hotels around the world and nothing compares to this hotel. It’s fit for business or leisure with a very boutique feel. Staff are fantastic across the board, Social Club rooftop restaurant and bar are addresses in their own right, coffee’s good and rooms are extremely high quality in terms of fittings and all of them I have stayed in have great views regardless of category. Location is intelligent too: very central but on the perimeter of where the traffic starts getting really bad, rather than in the thick of it like most other top end hotels in HCMC. I really have only good things to say about this place.
Location is in the Heart of the Saigon close to Unification Palace and the tony shopping district
A luxury hotel in every sense
The main restaurant is excellent for buffet breakfast included and lunch was also very good
The rooftop bar is not to be missed - reasonably priced at happy hour
Staff is very friendly, efficient and friendly
We had a minor medical problem and they helped get us treated a clinic around the corner with English speaking staff
Reasonable room rate for the quality of the hotel - you could pay more at a couple of other hotels but I doubt it would be nicer
Would stay again when in Saigon
