Most visitors to Saigon stay in District 1 - a polished, developed area full of office blocks and designer boutiques. This hotel is located in District 3 - a workaday residential area, which feels like a different city from District 1. When the taxi drops you off, you walk down a tight, busy alleyway, and the first time you are guaranteed to feel that you have come to the wrong place, but we quickly got used to that. Visiting anything in District 1 (where most of the sites and restaurants are) requires a 10-minute taxi ride, but those are cheap, and the hotel staff help to flag down a trustworthy meter taxi whenever needed.
Rooms are very clean and comfortable, the breakfast is delicious, and service is exceptionally helpful, honest and flawless - something we came to appreciate more and more as we travelled to other areas of Vietnam later on. We would not hesitate to recommend Ma Maison to anyone who, like us, is not bothered about not staying in District 1.
