Oscar Saigon Hotel Ho Chi Minh City Reviews
Reasonable Hotel Nov 03, 2011
Booking of Hotel Rooms: I e-mailed them. They are very fast in replying to your queries. I paid $103USD per room per night incl Bfast.
From Airport to Hotel: it will most likely cost you about USD$8 or 160,000VND. I would advise you to purchase a taxi voucher upon exiting the customs area. Average taxi would be anywhere between $7-10USD depending on the location of your hotel. Taxi company that are more reliable - Vinasun & Min Linh.
About the Hotel Policy: They will require your passport and it will be retained by them for safe-keeping. Upon asking why such a practice - they simply told me - In HCMC , no one has the right to check your passport. So do not be overly worried.
Hotel Location: The location of the hotel is good because it is situated in District 1. It is by the main road therefore getting a taxi is not a problem. On the left hand side of the hotel (3mins walk), there is a money changer (7am-10pm). It gives good exchange rate. It is near to Le Loi St & Ben Thanh Market(slow walk about 10mins).
Food: If one is talking & thinking about food, it is not an issue. There are plenty of cafes, restaurants & eateries within the vicinity of the hotel.
For Muslims: behind the hotel, there are about 5 Halal restaurant & a mosque (5mins walk from hotel). These eateries are located at Dong Du. Name of halal restaurants are: Halal@Saigon, D'Nyonya, Kedai Makan Melayu, Kedai Mamak & a Turkish restaurant.
Hotel Interior & Amenities: there are 3 lifts at the lobby. 1 big 2 small. When i say small - it is literally small, it fits 3 slim Asian man only. They also have a fitness room, which I do not recommend anyone to use!
The rooms (deluxe with windows [701 & 702]) are spacious & clean. Tastefully design, nothing over the top. I had a queen size bed & a bathtub. There are complimentary bottled water(2 small bottles daily upon request)& coffee tea facilities. TV channels are surprising good. There have about 30 over channels to chose from. A good mix of English, Italian, German, Dutch, Japanese, Arabic, Chinese etc.
Bfast was served at StarLight Restaurant Level 11. The spread was average. It was comparable to most hotel. They have 1 egg station with condiments, 1 noodle station, selection of cut fruits (4 choices), selection of cereals (4 types), dessert & coffee tea & juices (2 types).
My trip was for 4D3N. Overall, I enjoy my stay in this hotel. Hotel staffs are helpful. They understand basic English therefore when asking for complicated "stuffs" / questions , please keep it simple.
There are a few other hotels I noticed that might be worth checking it out. Besides the big brand name
