Its elegant lobby, beautiful rooms, and friendly staff will make your time here so relaxing, you might not want to leave in the end. Just a few steps from the hotel you’ll find some of the city’s main sights like the opera house, Nguyen Hue walking street and countless restaurants and bars to choose from.
Of course, the hotel itself also has some great venues to offer, such as the lobby lounge which serves high tea in the afternoon, or the bar with its generous happy hour promotions.

The Myst Dong Khoi
Just a few steps from the river and close to all the most happening locations downtown, you’ll find the Myst Dong Khoi, one of Ho Chi Minh City’s coolest designed hotels. The outside of the building is covered in greenery, a theme which is reflected all throughout the property. Step inside the lobby and let the friendly staff welcome you to one of the coziest five-star hotels you’ve ever been in.
The rooms are spacious and while they are wonderfully elegant, the gentle arches and comfortable Vietnamese-style furniture make you feel more like you are visiting someone’s home rather than staying at a hotel. What’s coolest about this place though, is that many rooms have outdoor bathrooms, shielded from curious eyes with yet more lush greenery. Want to feel close to nature in the big city? This spot is for you!

Budget Hotels in Ho Chi Minh City
A list of Ho Chi Minh City’s best hotels would be incomplete without some super budget-friendly hostels. If you’re planning on saving your money for cool activities, restaurants and bars, here are some places you could stay.
One of the coolest places to stay if it’s your first time in Saigon and you’re backpacking around the country is Bui Vien. This little street in District 1 is the place where you’ll find some of the city’s cheapest hostels, most fun bars, and many tour operators who can help you organize the next steps of your trip. It should come as no surprise that most backpackers stop here for at least one night.
Happy Saigon Hostel
Book a bed here to escape the noise but stay close to the action. The Happy Saigon Hostel is set in a little side street off busy Bui Vien and is perfect for you to relax after a long day of exploring all while staying close to the happening neighborhood.
They offer quite a variety of rooms, so be sure to book the right one. You can choose between a bed in a mixed or male-only/female-only dorm or go for smaller rooms with only two to four beds. Those are ideal if you’re traveling with some friends and want to stay in the same place, or even with a family. There’s also some good food to be had here, so you can get a yummy breakfast banh mi (Vietnamese sandwich) or some other simple dishes to start off your day on the right foot.
Dorm beds start at 6.50 USD.
Address: 205/10 Bui Vien, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City

What most guests love about this place, apart from the funky look, is that the food here is so good. Order a freshly made omelet for breakfast or get a bowl of steaming hot pho if you want to start your day like a local. Either way, you’ll have plenty of energy to explore the city, see the sights and get a taste of Saigon’s nightlife.
