Reviewed October 16, 2012

This hotel is a comfortable haven in a manic city - the staff simply cannot do enough to help you and make this a veritable "home from home". We had a beautiful room and perfect service during our three night stay - three fantastic restaurant recommendations and reservations with accompanying taxi - plus hand written instructions for driver and escorted to taxi on every occasion (with brollies when necessary - when it rains in Vietnam, it really rains!!). Don't be put off by the approach down an alley - it is perfectly safe. Only negatives would be the less than central location (a positive for us as we appreciated the peace and downtown was only a twenty minute £3 taxi ride away) and the lack of a lift (we were on the fifth floor, but our bags were willingly carried by the staff for us) which would present problems for anybody with mobility issues.

Thank You Ha for being a wonderful host.

I stayed in a single room for 3 nights and thought the hotel was lovely. The location is about 5 minutes drive from the city centre but I loved seeing, hearing and walking through the street life. My room and bathroom were both beautifully decorated and clean. The shower was the best shower in Vietnam in my opinion! The breakfast was delicious with lots to choose from and the staff all so helpful and friendly. I would stay there again and recommend others to stay there also.

I stayed there for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. No one can doubt that the hotel set up, staff, decor and overall experience is first class. It does however come with a huge bite of Saigon reality which is not for all...Ma Maison is located in District 3 which is a short taxi ride away from District 1 where all the tourist spots are. The travel is is no issue in terms of time or money if you take the two reputable taxi companies or even try the local bus as I did. The location however is in the middle of a typical Saigon residential alley - it's not pretty, or quaint, it's an alley. I loved walking down it every day and getting a sense of living in Saigon rather than travelling through, but that's the part not everyone will like. Be warned, it might shock you. The hotel it self however is done up in top class standards in every way and the service to go with it. But if you don't want such a dose of reality you won't enjoy this. I can't imagine staying any where else but here when I return!! There are only 10 rooms so each guest is really well taken care of and you do genuinely feel like a house guest in a magnificent French Vietnamese house. I loved my daily breakfasts with fresh fruits, eggs, bacon and brioche. PS: on the main road there is a little shack that sells the best Bunh Xae in the evenings. Wait till you see the crowd that gathers around for this.

To be honest, the location is mediocre when it comes to the point that you should spend additonal minutes to find the hidden hotel from the place where your taxi driver drops you off. However there would not be mind-boggling stream of motorbikes irritating your peace of mind or drinking and shouting people at the center of this relatively silent residence area. The noodle presented as the breakfast was the best to my history and the hospitality from the staff was more than I expected.

Situated 7kms from the airport. Walk out of customs doors and straight to the taxi stands directly opposite inside the airport. The two reputable companies that always charge the metre price is VINASUN and MAI LINH. It cost a standard fare of 160,000/$7 US to Ma Maison. Pay the man at the desk and he will take you outside and put you in the taxi. Have the address ready. Taxi is 80.000 from MM to the city but the local #65 bus will take you there for 4,000 each and leaves from outside the park. Very easy.

Ask anything and Natasha will give you all the advice you need at MM. The rooms are beautiful, breakfast filling and fresh and they can not do enough for you. Pure quality.

It's a perfect place to stay as it's out of the hustle and bustle of the city down a winding alley 3 mins from the Main Street. On-suites bathroom, TV, free wifi, breakfast included, water in your room and fresh tea and fabulous coffee brought to your room anytime.

Room Tip: Had the delux for extra room and very happy. They only have 12 rooms so book ahead.

My husband and I stayed here for one night. The hotel is located tucked off a main road amongst a very local environment. If you enjoy local southeast asia environments, you won't think anything of it. If you aren't quite used to it, it might be a bit different for you. The staff is always available to help you navigate your way out. It is located away from the city center, but still well within reach to pretty much anything in the mid-part of the city. An inexpensive taxi ride to most places in nearby quarters. The hotel itself is very well-maintained. If you have been traveling around Vietnam, this hotel may seem less friendly and accommodating than others. For example, we had been traveling for two weeks from the north to south and had stayed in 4 other hotels prior to this one. We had been taking train travel, which means arriving early in the morning. All other hotels but this one allowed us to check-in early and have breakfast at no charge with pleasure. This one charges $25 for early check-in and $10 per person for breakfast. So this is a perfectly standard policy, just not what we had experienced elsewhere for the same price or less. HCM seems a bit more expensive than other areas such as Hanoi. We had a similar hotel in Hanoi with outstanding service for $45 - not sure you can get that here. They did provide us with unlimited coffee and baguettes with butter complimentary and did upgrade us to a deluxe room (and made sure we knew the value), both of which were nice treats. They will bring you coffee or juice anytime you ask, complimentary and are extremely helpful with any arrangements. The breakfast included after check-in :) is a choice of three different options: western (eggs, bacon, etc.), vietnamese (noodles, etc.); and healthy (muesli, yogurt). They did offer to bring us anything else we wanted, but didn't take part as this was plenty. Our flight didn't leave until 1:00am the next day, so they offered us a neighboring single room for $30. This was perfect, the bed was big enough for us both to relax in and contained all the ammenities of a regular room for the time before we left for the airport. The owners do keep tight control on their business, which does somewhat translate into the experience, but does not deter from a very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: There is no elevator, so if you are in a 4th floor room, it can be a hike after a long day.

This was a last minute booking made for me from a colleague in Danang, as I had a few hours before an international flight. It is the perfect stopover for me. A quaint charming French villa turned into a boutique hotel... Location is also great as you get to experience the alleys before this welcome surprise. I loved it this is where I will come to in Siagon:-)
