Villa Song is an elegant and beautifully appointed small hotel on a bend in the Saigon River. The hotel faces undeveloped parkland on the opposite bank and provides transport by motorboat for the 15-20 minutes trip to a dock in downtown Ho Chi Minh City adjacent to the central Me Linh Square. The hotel’s location provides a wonderful respite from the hustle and energy of the more commercial and densely populated districts of the city. Going back to the hotel to relax at the end of a busy and hot summer day was the perfect way to retain my equanimity.
My hotel room was very comfortable and its terrace provided the opportunity to sit outside, watch the water hyacinth islands flow up and down the river with the tides, and listen to the birds that chirped in the morning and swarmed in the evening seeking their dinner. And speaking of dinner, the hotel has a restaurant that serves a competent mix of Vietnamese and Italian food.
The grounds are carefully maintained and the pool is hidden away from the riverside garden. Here one can take a filling and delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, juice, coffee, and a hot Vietnamese or western dish on the bank and, later, a drink or Vietnamese iced coffee at the small bar.
There is a professional spa on site that offers comprehensive services.
The hotel has recently undergone a management change and the staff was still in training during my stay. They were solicitous and should be ready to provide high quality service when the hotel officially re-opens in August.
