Colonial Charm In A Modern Metropolis: The Ten Best Hotels In Ho Chi Minh City

Villa Sông Saigon

Drop Ho Chi Minh City’s hectic urban lifestyle for Villa Sông , a 1930s colonial getaway on District 2, right by the Saigon river. Though a bit further out from the city center, the hotel offers a free 10-min boat ride to the town center, and it has plenty of serenity, beauty and comfort to make up for the lack of shopping and nightlife. The hotel has recently undergone a major revamp and has reopened with its impeccable and serene colonial charm intact but with additional luxury touches, including a new spa and gym. It now features spacious, breezy rooms overlooking the river or the hotel pool, with sophisticated design elements, like the freestanding bathtub in The Art Suite. The swimming-pool and the riverside restaurant equally blend luxury and relaxation, ideal for summer splashes and romantic dinners under the palm trees.
