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.

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

We just finished a visit in MCMC and stayed at the May Hotel. We had airport pick up and there was a bit of confusion between the Hotel Bell boy Allan and his driver. They didn't seem to know where each other was so we wasted time trying to find each other. On the drive to the hotel it was... More

We stayed for 3 nights in Jan 2014. We upgraded our booking to a suite (we are a couple travelling with our teenage daughter). The upgrade was well worth the money. Beds were comfortable and the suite had 2 TV's and aircon units. The 12th floor was quiet and the views of the city at night improved on the daytime... More

The hotel is centrally located in district one of Ho Chi Minh city and is very close to many shopping centers, fast food outlets and Japanese restaurants. Even though its a 3 star hotel, It's not because of a lack of service as staff were friendly and very helpful, feel free to approach them to inquire about the sights, shopping... More
