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
This 5 star hotel located in the old quarter in Saigon is one of the most stylish hotels I have ever stayed in. It has beautifully appointed rooms, very French in their decor and styling with exceptional amenities. Great views from floor 5 and a glorious claw foot bathtub in the deluxe double room ! The rooftop bar and pool is excellent and lovely to while away a sunset hour. (We did not eat at the hotel as we were too keen to get out in Saigon ! There is also a great French patisserie just around the corner - opposite the French embassy. ) Staff are attentive and helpful with good English. Overall, a beautiful and elegant hotel to which we would very happily return !
We had 4 wonderful nights here in October 2019. It was the perfect place to recover from our flight from the US as well as a terrific location with outstanding staff service and fabulous breakfasts (don't miss the chef's special salmon pho for breakfast!). When we left, we got a takeaway box of fruit and pastries and waters for our plane trip to Danang. All the staff from the General Manager to the front desk and dining room crew were warm, welcoming and helpful. The rooftop view is also special. This is THE place to stay in Saigon!
Great hotel and nothing was too much hassle with great tips and advice on what to do and where to go - very thoughtful and superb front desk - rooms excellent and the rooftop bar is fun for sundowners etc. I think good value and would happily stay again - beds are great comfort! It was my wife's 50th and they helped with some great extra touches and advice. Thank you Hotel des Arts!
