    Location and helpful Staff”

    Of all the similar type/price hotels around Ben Thanh market, I would rate City Hotel 35 Luu Van Lang St as the best in terms of location and helpful staff. The hotel is at road level whereas one has to climb a flight of stairs for most other hotels which is not conducive for lugging one's luggage. The rooms and toilets are clean. The street fronting the hotel is relatively free of traffic unlike those hotels along Le Thanh Ton St which is chock full of traffic all times of the day and evening. The only complaint I have is that there is only one plug point in the room in an awkward location near the cupboard. If you need to boil water, you need to place the kettle on the bedside table instead of the desk. Nevertheless, I will still stay at City Hotel on my next visit.

    Clean and spacious rooms and VERY friendly staff”

    Located near the Ben Thanh Market, English-speaking friendly staff, Clean rooms and bathrooms

    I have tried a number of hotels in Ho Chi Minh City but City Hotel on Luu Van Lang is by far the best. I am a budgeted traveler who goes on business trips. I like this location because it allows me to conveniently walk to wherever I want to go, whether the Ben Thanh Market or along Le Loi and Le Lai Street. Taking a taxi in this city is really not practical. I tried other cheaper hotels along the backpacker area but it is quite dark in the alleys. I really like the bright lights along this hotel street.

    Reliable and Affordable Hotel and Staff”

    English-speaking staff, superb location, nice rooms

    This is my second time to stay in the City Hotel on 35 Luu Van Lang Street. I can say that their front desk staff are very accommodating and speak English relatively better than other hotel staff I have stayed in. I enjoy the fact that it is located within just a few steps to the Ben Thanh Market and that grabbing a taxi to anywhere is only one call away (simply ask front desk staff to call taxis for your needs). Because I like walking around Saigon, I like the fact that this is located in District 1, which offers you a myriad of dining, partying, and even relaxation (massage/spa) options at a very reasonable price.

    Always a Nice Hotel near Ben Thanh Market”

    Its small and management gets to know all of the guests personally

    i went to vietnam to enjoy a few days of tet (chinese new year). i always stay here because it is safe and staff very friendly. i normally book a room with window however i got a room without window this time and i think i like it more as (it is much quieter and the room is cooler after a long hot day). i like the balcony on 18 luu van lang and the non windown room at 35 luu van lang the most. the least thing i like is the breakfast that was served... either the vietnamese or continental versions so i would suggest going out in the street to eat... but i will come back here as i have for many years.

If you arrive past 12 midnight, you have to knock to wake the guard and for them to open the accordion doors. Breakfast is served at City Hotel - 18 Luu Van Lang Street. It's very near. Hotel is very near Ben Thanh Market and Saigon Square. Local restaurants are all around the hotel.

    Fantastic overnight rest”

    My husband and I stayed here our first night in Vietnam after flying in from the US. Fantastic location for 36 hours in Ho Chi Minh - walkable to the river, Independence Palace, and War Museum, next door to the Market, and surrounded by delicious restaurants. The hotel was spotless and our room was great. There is security 24/7 and all of the staff is extremely helpful, polite, and charming. There are two City Hotels on the same block. We initially arrived at the incorrect one and the staff walked our bags down to the correct one. They stored us baggage after check out, let us shower before our flight in the staff bathroom (it was so nice of them!!), spoke with a halong bay cruise staff member to give them our passport information when they couldn't understand me, and called a taxi for us to the airport at the end of our stay. It was fantastic and I would highly recommend this hotel. Also the free breakfast is delicious and is on a balcony overlooking part of the city!

    Possibly the best located and value-for-$$ in HCMC”

    Large and very clean room/bathroom, central location, across from Ben Thanh Mkt, District 1

    Don't be fooled by the 2-star rating. Sure, it's not Sheraton or Hilton but for the price, it is possibly best value for money in District 1 HCMC. What I didn't like so much - slow lift - a touch of noise from the street market below esp if you hv a windowed room - in-room safe tricky to set up first time - AC a touch warm during day but gets better by night What I liked a lot - <120,000VND taxi fare from airport (grab a curbside Vinasun/Maile metered taxi), we got right up to the hotel doors, fantastic location, a bazaar just outside the hotel doors, more shops in Ben Thanh Mkt 2 mins away, food stalls everywhere and restaurants close by, famous Pho2000 outside the Mkt area, walking distance to everywhere else in District 1 HCMC. Man, we walked a lot - HCMC traffic is a hoot, you must experience crossing the busy main roads, just do it - step out onto the road, DO NOT RUN, keep a steady pace, maintain a steely stare on every oncoming vehicle, best not to tango with any bus, scooters/cars are game on. Once you enter the hotel, it is a peaceful oasis away from the constant HCMC hustle and bustle. The hotel has good 24/7 security (the guard doubles as the porter), smily front-desk staff always, wifi works fine, breakfast is good (not a buffet, some dishes they do better than others, stick with the Chinese/Vietnamese options, avoid Western choices). The large but somewhat firm queen bed (preferred by Asians) always has fresh crisp sheets, bathroom is nice and clean each day, floors are clean, cool and shiny. Choose from rooms with window (can be noisy yet bright) or one without window (very quiet and somewhat stuffy). This was our first trip to Saigon (or Vietnam), we loved our 5-day stay here at the City Hotel. Most definitely will stay here again.

    Lovely room, great location

    We stayed in this hotel toward the end of a 3 month trip through Asia and thought it was fantastic. The room was spacious, with a lovely bathroom and the most comfortable bed since we'd left home. The staff were friendly and helpful, but with limited English. Location is really good, in a very quiet side street off the Ben Thanh Market, very easy walking distance to the backpacker area or the central part of the city. Free breakfast was limited but filling. Would definitely stay again on any return trip to Ho Chi Minh and would recommend to friends.

Shower was awesome, after several rooms with hot water issues we were very pleased that this was spacious & the hot water was perfect. Staff were really nice, we tipped the bellboy on arrival & he was so happy to help us with everything. It was clean & the air con stayed on even without the plastic key ring thing in the point that the lights work on. Especially awesome to come back to a cooled room in Ho Chi Minh City when you've been wandering around in the humid heat all day.

Small but very well-designed and equipped, everything is put in neat position, furniture is made to order and thus so fit to the position in the room. Good bathroom with high pressure water line. The room has a 32 inch LCD but the cable TV quality is bad. That doesnt matter much as we dont have time for TV when travelling.

    City Hotel is located in the heart of the shopping district of Ho Chi Minh City, it is also the area where you can book tours and buses to Cambodia. The hotel staff are very helpful and accommodating. This is my second time to stay at this hotel as i feel safe staying with them as a solo traveler. The night market is just a few steps away and the made up barbeque restaurants at the market sells fresh seafood at a reasonable price.

Only takes 2 minutes walking. 2) The staff is very friendly and help full. 3) Room is big and clean 4) Safe box provided for you to put your valuable things. I staying there for four night and everyday saw the smile from the receptionist and the guards. They are so friendly and nice to talk with. Honestly that this place is located at very2 strategic location. Worth to stay here. Surely stay here again if I went to Ho Chi Minh.

    Basing My Review On My Mom's Experience”

    I booked this hotel through Agoda unfortunately I was not able to join the trip. So my mom and our friends were the ones who used it. Upon arrival, there was no problem with the check in despite my absence. All the showed was the booking confirmation. the following day my mom sent me pictures of their breakfast and she said it was really good (it came with the room rate). According to them the room was very nice. The best part is that the hotel is very near Ben Tanh market! When I rebook my flight to Ho Chi Minh, I will definitely be checking in here.

    We stayed at City Hotel on our first night in Ho Chi Minh city. The hotel is in a small street right next to Ben Thanh market which makes it very easy to find. It is a short taxi ride from the airport. As we were staying only one night and arrived late we opted for a room without a window which small but clean and had the advantage of being very quiet. The staff was friendly, the breakfast was sufficient and we enjoyed our stay at City Hotel.
