We stayed at this wonderful hotel last July (2007) and I thought it remiss of me not to include a review as it is such a nice hotel. Sorry for the delay in posting it.
At that time, the May Hotel was brand new, having opened only weeks before- it does have a pool but that wasn't quite ready for use at that time.
We were staying in the Star Hotel next door on Thi Sach Street and I thought I would just walk in and have a look at the rooms.
I felt, from the look of the place that it would be much more expensive, but a look at their price list was a really great surprise as it was not at all expensive and we got a good opening deal.
They showed me all rooms ranging from the standard, to the May Suites and a few days later we spent one night in a deluxe room which was absolutely lovely, and 2 nights in the May Suite.
The Suite is huge with a complete lounge area with a separate tv and airconditioner and the bedroom area has two huge super-comfortable beds with itheir own tv and airconditioner.
A lovely bathroom and gorgeous views completed the package.
buffet breakfast came with the price and it was really good.
The only tiny gripe was you had to pay for internet usage, but, they had very good new equipment, including very good headphones for use with skype or msn instant, and their connection was very fast. I think it was about US$2 an hour, so, really it's not so bad.
There is a really nice lobby to sit in and watch the world pass by and there are absolutely brilliant cafes and bars all around the area just steps away.
I have recommended this hotel to many people since my stay and I think they were all delighted - I know we were.
Even though I also stayed at the Majestic in HCMC on the same trip, and it is a wonderful hotel, I think when I go back to HCMC again, I would most definitely stay at the May.
