“Good option for Ho Chi Minh if airport proximity helpful and/or day room required”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2012

Booked Starcity just for the day only as very early morning arrival from Europe and connecting domestic flight in the evening. Staff very welcoming and although arriving earlier than we had indicated we did not need to wait long for room by 9am. The room was very well appointed for the price-point with nice shower and large flat screen TV with all the international channels. All-in-all, highly recommended hotel especially as they offer day rooms at a good rate and offered for an extended period to allow sufficient rest as well as an opportunity to tour the many interesting sights of Saigon. The pool is particularly enticing with a nice ambiance in a roof top location.

Room Tip: Great hotel for airport proximity and for day rooms

This hotel was very clean, modern, and had many convenient amenities (pool, spa, salon, fitness center, restaurants, bar). The spa and salon was very relaxing, with very cheap services (60min massages for 20 USD). The food at the hotel was tasty, but nothing special at decent prices. Our room was large, had a huge bathroom (rainfall shower), and a great view of the Phu Nhuan District of HCMC.

This hotel would have been absolutely perfect if it was located in District 1. Do not stay here if you are planning on doing site-seeing in HCMC. You'll need a taxi (~3 USD) for each trip to the main areas of the city. We chose to stay at this hotel during the last days of our trip to be closer to the airport (which wasn't really necessary).

Our only major disappointment with this hotel was the lack of anything to do in the vicinity of the hotel. It's in the poorer of areas, and only had 2 restaurants nearby. Even getting to said restaurants was difficult because the hotel is on a very busy road with a median to cross. If you're content with hotel food, you should be fine.

Dear valued guest,
Thank you for sharing your experience with us, we are glad to know you are happy with the quality of products and services we deliver.

It’s a pity that you don’t find our location conducive during your stay in Ho Chi Minh City, as the Phu Nhuan district is renowned for its connections to local and international businesses, rather than being a “poorer area” as you mentioned.

The StarCity Saigon Hotel is located in an area that is abundant with shops that specialize in local art and painting collections, and small shopping boutiques on every corner of the nearby streets. A Pagoda is located less than 5 minutes’ walk away from the hotel, and there is also a large shopping mall nearby for those looking for international brands. All you have to do is spend the time to explore the area or ask any of our helpful staff for directions and advice.

Thank you for your feedback and we hope to welcome you again to the StarCity Saigon Hotel.

Nice western style hotel, convenient to airport if you have an early flight/late arrival. Bar prices are more western than usual for Vietnam, but as its a tourist hotel near the airport thats not surprising Good pick up service in clean air con car, the driver had to wait an extra hour for us because we stupidly did visa on arrival and waited 50 minutes for our passports to come back. Standard breakfast fare, overall good clean hotel with great pool.

We arrived very late at night, it was almost 2 am as obtaining VOA in HCMC airport took too much time in my humble opinion - almost 1 hour! So we were happy our hotel was so near the airport, a good 5 mins drive. Check-in was smooth, the staffs all very nice and courteous, the lobby bright and shiny with a huge X-mas tree. As we only stayed for 1 night before transfering to the beach, we initially didn't care about the room, but found it spacious, modern and exceptionally clean. Good breakfast, nice pool and gym. Would definitely recommend it and will return for the last leg of our Vietnam trip, can't wait!

This hotel was a surprise for us. We stayed here one night but we wished to have stayed here at least 3 ! The hotel is very tastefully decorated , efficient and modern. The room is very beautiful and so is the bathroom with a great douche. The bar next to the hotel lobby is very comfortable, beautiful. It has an interesting location about 7 minutes from the city center and 7 minutes from the airport by taxi !

Plus:
-Location
-Room decoration and design
-Small but fine swimming pool
-Beautiful lobby bar
-Beautiful breakfast assortment decoration

Mins:
-Breakfast area could be bigger
-Breakfast staff could be more friendly and efficient

We had an opportunity to stay at the StarCity Saigon for a consecutive 14 days. It was our first time at this hotel so I had some reservation about it although I had read many positive comments on this site. It turned out to be a fantastic experience and the best decision we had made for our Vietnam trip. The hotel is new since it was opened for just about a year. The room is spacious, clean, comfortable and includes wifi. Because it has been in operation for a short time, the staff is still inexperience and could have more training. This does not mean that they are not super helpful. Rather, they will try to please guests in anyway to their best abilities. All housekeeping requests are responded to almost immediately. For 14 days, that was quite a number of requests from us. The entire staff is very attentive, friendly and professional. On the third floor, the gym has adequate equipment and well air-conditioned. There is a water cooler available but it missed to provide towels. The outdoor pool is nearby and a bit small in size. The hotel location is convenient. It is on a busy street but it is in a safe, clean and good neighborhood. The cab fare to downtown is roughly $5 dollar and takes less than 15 minutes. The airport is very close by so it is regrettable that the hotel charges $10 to pick up guests at the airport. We tried 4 different entrees on the restaurant menu and they were all very delicious, especially the grill chicken. The bar is a great place to relax with a live band playing well known tunes and they have happy hour from 5 – 8pm with 50% off some drinks.. I think 8 pm is a generously extended happy hour. With a 4-star rating, this hotel exceeds its standard compared to many popular American hotels when it comes to service. In general, we had a very positive experience with our stay and I like to specifically thank Ms. Hai in Sales for her personal attention, her willingness to accommodate our requests and her professional service.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less traffic noise

Brand new airport a few minutes from the airport. My family and I stayed here for one night inbetween a transfer to Cambodia. We didn't leave the hotel so I can't opine to the surrounding area. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel. Dinner was delicious. We were very impressed with the taste and presentation. A similiar meal in NYC would have cost 5x as much. The breakfast buffet was one of the best I've had in all the hotels I've stayed at in Asia. Service was very good. The rooms were large and comfortable. The only complaint is that the sound barrier was not great, the women next to us were talking, and not loudly but we could hear them clearly through the adjoining door.
