“Excellent choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Hai Long 5 Hotel has been an excellent place to stay in Ho Chi Minh city. At first I stayed in a deluxe room before moving to a standard room. In both cases the rooms where clean, comfortable and quiet.
The hotels location was superb. It is situated close to the majority of sights as well as exceptional (and cheap) restaurants and bars.
What has made the whole experience excellent has been the staff. Patricia, Jenny and Jessica on the main desk have been accommodating, helpful and very friendly.
Although the hotel is aimed at mid-range travellers rather than budget it has been worth every penny (and still very affordable).
Thumbs up from me.

Went to HCM with my wife to attend a friend's wedding dinner function. Was supposedly booked at the Hai Long Silverland 3 hotel, but due to the only room reserved for us having drainage problem at the toilet, they transferred us to the Hai Long 5 Hotel (understand belong to the same group ). Absolutely no regrets. Location were very central to most of the city sights, rooms were clean and most important, staffs were friendly and helpful (especially one Ms. Jenny Tran). We had to cut short our stay and return to Spore the next day (Sat), due unforeseen circumstances n she help book our air tickets on Fri evening at 8pm plus n had the air tickets delivered personally to our room at 11pm plus. Kudos to her for a job well done. They also threw in a free car transfer for us from the hotel to the airport just to make up for the inconvenience of having switch us from Hai Long Silverland to this Hai Long 5 Hotel. Very thoughtful gesture. Oh, 3-4 shops next to the hotel was a spa, good for those tired legs after all the walking. Overall, this hotel offers great value for money.

We had a pleasant stay at Hai long 5.

Rooms are clean but the one we had didn't have a window and was pretty small. Good furniture, A/C.

Service was very good besides one frontdesk employee who was not efficient at all. All others were fantastics.

Great location, a step away from the happening places, restaurants and big hotels.

They could use some improvement for breakfast.

Went to Vietnam last weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday and had a blast! Checked hotels near Saigon River and found Hai Long 5, did not regret a single thing. Arrived too early and our room is not yet ready, not a problem got upgraded to their suite! First day impression, impressive. They haul our baggage to the room, gave us a map and a list of things to do in Saigon. The room is pretty big for the 2 of us. Clean sheets, clean bathroom with a working jacuzzi. Of all the 4 days we stayed, everyone was very nice. All our request was attended right away. Highly recommended.

The Hai Long 5 Hotel is a very good deal if you look for a clean, central and cheap hotel in Saigon (HCMC). I stayed here for two nights with a group of friends and had a bedroom with my wife. The room, to be fair, was very small and had no outside windows. However, it was clean, with a good bed and well-working AC. The bathroom was also well-equipped with better blow dryer than in many upmarket hotels. Breakfast was very good Vietnamese style (I love the combination of an omelet with fried noodles). And the location was very central. Saigon is spectacular and the Hai Long 5 should be your accommodation option if you are on a budget.

We booked for three nights, after the second night we wondered why we had so many bites (in the 20s), after a quick google we quickly realised it was not mosquito bites but bed bugs. Because of a hospital appointment we wanted to avoid the hassle of changing hotel so asked reception to change room. They offered us another room at 10am, after waiting two hours we moved room and prayed that we wouldn't wake up with any other bites. Thankfully, we didn't.

We got a cheap deal online for the hotel and while the service and breakfast was great we can't overlook the bed bugs, two weeks later and we are still covered in bites !

This is the kind of hotel that you leave with the 'good deal' feeling.
You get what you pay for.
The staff is quite nice and helpful. We got there pretty early and they let us check in around 8 am, it was nice of them after a 20 hour journey.
We also booked a tour to the Mekong Delta trough them and everything turned out fine.
The breakfast is included and it is nice :)
The hotel is quite near the opera house and the most important museums, so if you're that kind of tourist you may want to book this one.
