I took a trip to Saigon earlier this month with my family. I usually opt to stay in District 1, but I wanted to give Saigon Village a try given its fair prices and generally positive reviews. I booked a single bedroom suite for 4 nights and a 2 bedroom upgrade for an additional but separate 2 nights. For my party of 4, there was plenty of space. Though the accommodations were a bit dated, everything was in working order including the washing machine and microwave. The kitchen was fully equipped and our fridge was initially stacked with plenty of water. The beds were comfortable and the complimentary Wi-Fi worked extremely well. Even though the free breakfasts were limited in options, they were decent. The outdoor pool and external grounds, in my opinions, were well kept and serviced daily. By HCM standards, the hotel location is remote facing the large U. of Tech campus. Its spacious gated design and continuous security presence maintain it as an ideal oasis in a sea of hectic activities. In addition, the staff was very helpful and their on duty managers spoke fluent English. I'd recommend it to anyone who prefer some peace and quiet.
