Pretty good but nothing too special for the price. Everything is good, nice clean rooms, nice pool (you can't sunbathe though which was really a shame) and a very good breakfast. Staff was polite and kind. Location is okay. Overall: a nice hotel, but nothing special.

This is a large hotel situated near the opera house. It was walking distance from the city centre and close to shops and restaurants. The room was basic but a good size. Breakfast was good and the rooftop pool is a great feature of the hotel. The wifi was very good, the staff were efficient although not overly welcoming.

Top floor pool area really good with bar and food available. Room was ok but bath did not have sealant around it. We had cockroach problem in bathroom on both nights....2 found each night plus...

it disappointed the last time I stayed, so I waited for a few years before trying again. Sad to say, no improvement. The rooms are getting really shabby and the bathrooms are really really bad. Nothing quite closes and you will be scalded or frozen in the shower - no in-between. The pool is excellent - good length and very... More

The only good point is the pool, but in poor indoor room, old, and so cold water and atmosphere. Everything is quite old, style and maintenance, but clean. Good location and very rare in Saigon: quiet and not noisy area! Right beside japanese discrict with many bars and restaurants and 300m from center. Bit expensive for a low 3 stars... More

Great hotel, a bit fancier than I had expected. Large roof top pool with bar, awesome buffet breaky. It was right in the centre of District One so we were able to walk almost everywhere. The staff were great and helped us book our tours for the few days we were there. The room was very clean and spacious, it... More

We used Hi Chi Minh City as a base for our recent Vietnam trip, and the May Hotel was an excellent choice for our 4 stays (in 2.5 weeks). The staff helped arrange airport pickups, tours, taxis, luggage storage, and advice. The pool was spacious enough for serious lap swimming, with meticulously maintained water quality, done without excessive chlorine. The... More

Nice location in the business district. Breakfast was good and breakfast staff friendly and good service. Rooms look very old fashioned. We asked to change as no water pressure in ours. We had stayed in a much cheaper hotel in the cheaper area with a fantastic shower so I was not about to put up with that. It felt like... More
