Saigon Europe Hotel
Ranked #82 of 476 Hotels in Ho Chi Minh City
Reviewed 15 August 2012

In the middle of the backpackers neighborhood, BUT a huge step up from most places we looked at. Real good value, friendly & helpful staff. Would certainly go back. Gave us a map and outlined the spots to see. Did their best to accomodate everyone when all the local area had an early morning blackout.

Room Tip: Get a room in the back, off from the street.

I chose this compared to Beautiful Saigon as this is reviewed as having bigger rooms. Indeed the Superior room is spacious, PC in room makes it good to surf for places to go ard the city. Wifi speed is slow. Superior room are all facing the roads which makes it noisier due to the honking downstairs, loud music is acceptable, I think the stretch facing Beautiful Saigon is worse.

We also stayed half a day more in the std plus room as sup room is fully booked, the room is quite small, however it is not as noisy as superior rooms and air con is much colder than Superior's since they have more windows and subject to more sun.

Breakfast - you can order 2 portions of what you like on the limited menu, food is acceptable since its hot food( if compared to the usual buffet style). Service is good, the receptionist auto gave us map and directions to where we can go. The concierge is also very helpful, just tell him where you want to go, and he can tell the driver the locations and make sure they go by meter. Rem to bring the green map given by the hotel, its of good help, just point to the address below and driver knows where the hotel is. I didnt hv to speak a word to taxi driver there at all.

Room Tip: Chose the standard/plus if you do not mind smaller rooms, it is less noisy. if you like bigger spa...

My family and I stayed in 2 rooms and though the specifications of the rooms were not initially met, Ms. Ly tried her very best to accommodate our preferences. She is a BIG asset of this hotel and her PR is just excellent! It made up for the leaky, wet bathrooms that came from a shower enclosure that was structurally devoid of any drain as this all-important drain was located outside of the shower door. That left the bathroom floor wet with soapy water and dangerous to walk on! Our first room had a bathtub and had the same problem. Except for that and the nightly LOUD music compliments of the Buffalo Club nearby, the room size, cleanliness, laptop, wifi, in- room safe, bathroom amenities, ref, free bottled water and buffet breakfast made up for it! Location is central, accessible to tour agencies,tons of restaurants and taxis (take only Mai Linh and Vinasun) passing by almost every minute!

Room Tip: Email Ms. Ly for discounted room rates and refuse any front room unless you want blaring music to &q...

I stayed at the Saigon Europe on three separate occasions during the past month as I travelled on a circuitous route through Cambodia and southern Vietnam; strangely, I always felt like I was coming home as I moved through District 1 towards the hotel, knowing that a clean room and extremely helpful staff would be waiting for me upon arrival. Location, facilities and service were excellent; breakfasts were fine, the air-conditioning was reliable, and there are plenty of laundries, money exchangers and restaurants in the near vicinity. A great base from which to observe and join the colour, noise and movement of the backpacker precinct; great value in terms of pricing, too! I was there so many times that I was given a generous discount as a returning traveller; will be keen to stay at the Saigon Europe again when next in Vietnam.

We stayed at this hotel at the start of our tour of Vietnam. The room was huge with two double beds and very clean. The staff were amazing, always a smile and ready to help with any questions. The laptop in the room was good and so were the breakfasts. Great location, close to everything. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.
