As a frequent visitor, I used to stay at the higher end hotels. However, a friend asked me why i was spending so much money, essentially for a bed, and recommended I try the May Hotel. So, this was my fourth time staying at hotel this year. Staff are pleasant, rooms are clean and location is good. The beakfast is... More

Will start off by saying most of the staff are all extremely friendly, attentive and helpful. However, a few things let the hotel down in our opinion. Every time we have gone to use the pool there has been swimming lessons in it. I understand this is a regular occurrence in the area, however, when you are paying for a... More

A well located Hotel not far from restaurants and sights. Very helpful staff. Nice buffet breakfast. Good sized air conditioned rooms. Nice enough bathroom. Swimming pool on the roof was nice although they do let locals use it for swimming lessons which can be annoying. Rooms on higher floors have reasonable view. Matresses on the firmer side but okay. Would... More

Enjoying a beer or two on the roof top bar/swimming pool. What a fabulous place. Buy one get one free this month. This place is perfection and spotlessly clean and was not expensive. Even the food is really reasonable priced at this hotel. Situated in the business district of ho chi min city close to markets, eateries and entertainment. Staff... More

For business trip, whereby only need a clean and safe place to sleep. This hotel serves its function. Breakfast is acceptable. Location is walking distances to places of interest. Even if you choose to travel by taxi, it will not be far to the nearby places of interest in city centre.

We found the May Hotel tidy, functional and handy to the city. The included buffet breakfast was good and we appreciated the refreshing roof top but semi enclosed pool. The pool was hardly used, we were usually the only ones there. The gym was open aired and therefore too hot to utilise, with a lot of the equipment not appearing... More

Although the hotel is located in district 1. The amount you pay for compared to what you get from the hotel is bad. The breakfast tasted very stale and the rooms are very old. The elevator is broken and has eroded walls and the rooms are typical of a 2* to 3* hotel. (The superior twin costs $100 and the... More
