Guest Friendly Hotels Ho Chi Minh City
UPDATED November 2022
Being a charming country where combines beauty of nature, classic ancient remains, a mixture of contemporary and old-fashioned lifestyle of people, Vietnam has become one of the most captivating destinations in South East Asia.
In Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), well-know city of Vietnam, entertainment industry is growing fast, and there are wide variety of coffe, pubs and bars, and number of clubs and discos with regular live music. Some of these (America Disco, Apocalypse Now - an institution in HCMC -, Lush, Shark…) are must-visits for newcomers, especially those traveling alone who may want to make new friends and meet local people.
For fun, and all those looking for more actions or adventures, more sexy vietnamese women can be found:
- "Hai Ba Trung street" with hostess/billiard bars located at 35, 37, 49, 51 & 91 in District 1. These bars open around 7-8 PM and anything goes,
- "Dong Khoi street" or "Le Thanh Ton street" offering more complementary bars with great customer services (the "29" and "49" down on Dong Khoi street, or the "Quan Nho" and the "Bin Bin" bars on Le Thanh Ton street #13 with a best girl quality selection),
- "Pham Ngu Lao" (along "24th September Park") or "Hoa Binh Park" (on the corner of "Hung Vuong" and "Nguyen Chi Thanh" streets), both current hot spots in the liveliest city offering more freelancers to pick up. There are also plenty massage places in the city, KTV (Karaoke) or taxi girls motorbikes which offer more services. Going rates are about 500k to 1 million VND (US$15) for ST, and 1 to 2 million (US$30) for LT.
Because prostitution is illegal, as well as bringing girls into hotels, most hotels (especially those renowned 4 -5 stars hotels) in Vietnam are quite strict and don’t allow their customers bringing extra guests to stay up to 9.00 pm otherwise you have to register them with extra fee (generally US$10 to the receptionist).

Guest Friendly Hotels near Hai Ba Trung and Dong Khoi Street
84 Mac Thi Buoi, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Location : Small cosy hotel conveniently located right on the Don Koi near shopping, restaurants and entertainment areas.

An excellent location close to all city attractions.
Guest Friendly policy reply by The Tan Hoang Long Hotel :
4B – 4C Thi Sach Street, Ben Nghe Ward, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Location : The Ho Sen Hotel is another basic hotel conveniently located in the heart of the city, right next to the notorious Apocalypse Now club, a must-see in Saigon, close to river night markets and walking distance to all city’s main attractions (shopping, restaurants, bars and nightlife). My deluxe room was large, comfortable, clean and comes with decent facilities : bed (typical hard mattress), flat screen TV with cable, bathroom (bath-shower combo), and the internet although there were some connection issues was quite fast. The only drawback was the buffet breakfast, correct but basic, and to be honest, a kind of a first come first serve basis. Overall, with a prime location perfectly set for solo traveler. A good value for money. Highly recommended.

Location : The Ho Sen Hotel 2 is the sister of Ho Sen Hotel. They are situated adjacent to each other, so the convenience of the city and its attractions are the same. The VIP room I booked trought Agoda was clean, spacious, the bed comfortable and the free internet ok. Fast service however the in room bathtub’s spa massage seems not to be working. With many small restaurants, plenty of massage salons and night life points at proximity, a pretty good choice for those looking for reasonably priced accommodation in the centrer of the city and close to all interesting things in Saigon.

17-19-21 Ly Tu Trong Street, District 1 - Japanese Area, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Location : The Norfolk Mansion is a hotel with a high level Western-style service (not luxury level, but all what you expected from an apartment hotel); not a really a vietnamese place in HCMC. I stayed 4 nights here and I have to say it was perfect! My apartment was clean, big, and contained everything I needed. The wifi was fast and had no problems connecting. The hotel is also fully equipped with 4 elevators (this was always enough while I was there, I haven’t seen any crowd), gym, sauna, pool, library and billiards. All this plus the excellent hotel location (centrally located in HCMC – easy acces to a lot of parts of the city on foot, multiple clubs, many bars, and plenty restaurants and massage salons nearby), I would recommend highly if you have the budget.

Guest Friendly policy reply by The Bong Sen Hotel Annex :
58 Mac Thi Buoi Street, Ben Nghe Ward, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Location : Small budget hotel in great location straight in the heart of Saigon entertainment areas (think restaurant, bars, beer and hostess bars) and walking distance to Riverfront and all the night activities. The deluxe room with balcony I booked was clean, spacious, well appointed. The balcony was small and had no view but at least it has the merit of existing. The breakfast served on 7th floor bar and restaurant at the top of the hotel was correct but limited. With nightlife nearby all in all a good place to stay. However, beware if you book the cheapest room available through Agoda I would say not the best deal and no the better place to stay.
