Ma Maison Boutique Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 27, 2013

We stayed here for three nights and it was an unforgettable experience. The room was exquisite, clean and beautiful while the whole staff was personal, extremely helpful and pleasant. We loved the location in district 3 away from all the tourist and the center was only a short taxi ride away. We loved how authentic this hotel and its neighbourhoods. For a truly special experience in HCMC, I couldn't recommend this hotel any warmer.

We stayed two nights, left for the Mekong overnight and then back for another night in HCMC. Without question this is one of the best hotel experiences I've had in my life. The hosts were incredibly gracious, anticipating everything we needed, offering advice without intrusion and helping with travel plans, phone calls etc. The place is beautiful, an oasis in the city. As others have noted it is out of the tourist center and needs a cab or bus ride (if adventurous) to get to the tourist sites, but that only added to the charm of the place as it felt like an escape from the hustle and bustle that is HCMC The food was superb (don't miss the seafood pho) and the rooms well appointed with great beds and everything you would expect in a top flight hotel.

This little hotel delivers the "wow" factor.

The welcome is extremely friendly and personal and gives a little insight to the history of the hotel, which was originally a two-storey French house but over the years the Vietnamese owners have extended to five-floors, whilst retaining the original French character.

The rooms are immaculate with tremendous attention to detail. Breakfast is fresh and of the highest quality.

Others have mentioned that it is easy to use a bus to get to the city centre. The hotel encourages the use of the bus and offers the help of a "boy" to cross the main road to get to the bus stop. I would highly recommend that you take up the offer as crossing a road with hundreds of motorcycles going in both directions makes crossing the road a real challenge. However, getting safely to the other side rewards you with a great sense of achievement.

The only disappointment we had was that we only had one night in Ma Maison but will make up for that the next time we are in Vietnam.

An oasis escape from central Ho Chi Minh, our thanks go to John, Natasha and his staff for what can only be described as the best customer service experience - service I didn't know still existed. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left it was exceptional. We were greeted with smiles upon arrival and the offer of fresh juice and water whilst Natasha gave us an introduction to district three and the cheap local eats. The breakfast included was amazing and we were accommodated with a packed breakfast for an early departure. Tours were kindly booked for us and taxis were always ready and waiting to take us to our destination. The hotel decor is amazing and rooms immaculate. We can not thank John and his staff enough for making our first three nights in Vietnam super enjoyable.

We stayed here for three nights during out trip to Vietnam in a Signature room. This hotel is just lovely, it is immaculately clean and beautifully decorated and furnished. The breakfast is delicious and the people are unbelievable hospitable and helpful - I can't praise them enough, as they really made our time in HCMC easy and enjoyable. Ma Maison is situated in district 3, which is more of a local residential area. The hotel itself is accessed down an alley, which is off a side street, which is itself off the main road. When we were dropped off by a local taxi from the airport he couldn't find it, so we were a little concerned that we had been stranded in the middle of nowhere. However after a bit of sign language with a local shop keeping we realised we were very close to the hotel and found it without a problem - all the locals will point you in the right direction. It was really interesting staying in district 3, as it gives you a real taste of what it is like in a residential area, with the local shops and numerous street food vendors. It is easy to get into the centre on a local bus (which is only 5000 dong p/p) and takes about 15/20 mins.

We stayed at the Ma Maison Boutique hotel for 4 nights in April 2013. The hotel is located in District 3 and therefore either a taxi ride or bus journey to the central area. Taxi's are cheap in Vietnam so this isn't a problem but be aware that it isn't in walking distance to the main area and to consider taxi costs when choosing this hotel. This aside, the hotel was a lovely, warm and friendly place, its most outstanding feature was the people there, the staff are simply fantastic. They go out of their way to be helpful and offer a really personal service. I would definitely consider staying at Ma Maison again and recommend it highly.

From the moment we arrived we were greeted with warm friendly smiles and were greeted this way every day until the day we left. The staff at Ma Maison were exceptional!

The breakfast was delicious and freshly prepared, the accommodation spotless throughout and the complimentary teas, coffees and juices were most welcome, after a hot day exploring the city.

The location in District 3 was not a problem for us at all, just a short taxi OR bus ride into the city centre and I don’t normally do buses!! But it really was pretty easy to get around.

We would highly recommend Ma Maison and it’s quaint and quirky style.

Room Tip: Our deluxe room was large, light and airy. There are no lifts and a fairly steep climb, so perhaps a...
