New World Saigon Hotel
Ranked #50 of 462 Hotels in Ho Chi Minh City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 April 2012

Stayed here for 1 night. Corporate rate of 148++ which included breakfast and wifi (which I didn’t use but my relatives did) and gave us late check out till 2pm.

Check in was efficient and room was clean and had quiet. I had asked for a quiet room and they gave us a room which overlooks the nice courtyard so could not hear honking of the bikes nearby. Great!

Bathroom amenities included weighing scale to weigh luggage, no vanity mirror, disposable shaver, toothbrush sets, shower cap and many others. The shower is located higher up than normal so I do have to stretch to reach it.

Beds are comfortable and there is complimentary mineral water provided which you should use to brush teeth with. The pillows are soft but good enough that we do not get neckaches.

The pho (Vietnamese beef noodles) at the ground floor coffee house is good and available at 190++dong and is also available at the buffet breakfast. Do note that service can be quite slow at dinner time but picks up during breakfast. Breakfast: I had freshly made hot waffles with maple syrup and bananas. There is pho, congee, muesli, many tropical fruit. But didn’t see any Japanese dishes.

The hotel is about 5-10min walk to Ben Thanh Market which is similar to Bangkok’s Chatuchak. The stallholders speak many languages and Chinese dialects. You can bargain up to 50% off their initial asking price for locally made foodstuffs. There is also Vietnamese rice rolls and pho if you want to save on hotel breakfast. Shops close about 6pm.

Business centre on the 2nd floor has quick internet access. 15min block charges.

The hotel is located in a busy area with many shops nearby for shopping/dining. If you want higher end products such as local Ipa Nima or foreign Esprit, take a 5min taxi ride to Dong Khai street. Easy to get a taxi back to hotel too.

For good Vietnamese food, our friends took us to Nha Hang Ngon. The filet mignon Banh Mi (Vietnamese baguette) was delicious. (I’ve a separate review for the restaurant). A very short taxi ride from our hotel.

In all, good place to stay for leisure or business.

Room Tip: Higher floor, less street noise.

After travelling on business to HCM for more than 20 years, this is the first time i have stayed at the New World.
Check-in was efficient and very polite. The guest rooms are very comfortable and well equiped.
The breakfast if included in your room rate is first class and great value. All stations well stocked and capabale staff on the egg/omelette station.
It is a very busy hotel with many tour groups but the staff seem to cope extremely well and the public areas never seemed too busy.
The Japanese restaurant on the first floor is outstanding but horrendously expensive!
One big downside....no wi-fi in the guest rooms.
I would stay again depeding on the room rate/breakfast package offered.

Room Tip: the higher rooms have better views

Stayed at this hotel for the second time and meets all the requirements for the business traveller with facilities, location, strong security, very helpful staff e.t.c My only criticism is the price considering what the competition are offering locally. Cost of living in Vietnam is relatively low so prices in excess of >£100 a night is top end. The location is great so if only here on business try to get out and visit the local bars, restaurants, nightlife, markets e.t.c. That way you get a much better experience of the country.

First, I need to qualify that the last time I was in HCMC was about 5 years ago and was on budget travel. HCMC was quite different then.

Secondly, I chose New World because it was recommended by a colleague and also because of other traveller's reviews.

The lobby was large and impressive looking. Gave the impression of a 5-start hotel. At check-in, the front desk staff was friendly, and accommodating to my requests.

I was given a superior room, and although the room decor is kind of old fashioned, it was clean and spacious. It was on the 2nd floor and supposedly faces the garden terrace, but the plants in the balcony planter area are so tall, they pretty much obscured my view. On the flipside, it offered my room privacy from anyone who might be strolling in the terrace garden (not that I saw any).

Breakfast spread was quite varied, and the quality was tastier than expected.

I visited the gym (didn't use it), and it looks to be quite well equipped. There is a recreational pool too that looks quite clean (didn't use it either).

Location wise, it is a stone's throw from the Ben Thanh market. You just have to brave the motor traffic as a pedestrian.

Overall, if and when I return to HCMC again for business, I will stay at New World Saigon again.

I've stayed here twice in the past 5 years. My most recent visit was very pleasant, with much improved service from staff, improved in-room and restaurant dining experience, and an overall much improved hotel experience. I look forward to staying her again. Try the asparagus and roast pumpkin salad.
