Ho Chi Minh City

Are there any budget hotels near the airport?


Tan Son Nhat Airport is located in a street of the same name, which has many hotels and hostels that are perfect for any budget and travel style. However, please be aware of the heavy traffic near the airport, as it can be quite irritating for some people.

Below are some suggestions:

  • Bao Minh Hotel, B12 Bach Dang Street, Tan Binh Dist.
  • Doha Hotel Saigon Airport, 2/17 Hong Ha Street, Tan Binh Dist.
  • Erato Boutique Hotel, 44-46 Hong Ha Street, Tan Binh Dist.
  • Waiting Flight Rooms, 50/3B Truong Son, Tan Binh Dist.

What is the best time of the year to find cheaper accommodation?


Accommodation rates in Ho Chi Minh City are not subject to much variation throughout the year. You will be able to find rooms for any budget, from prices as low as VND 200,000 per night.

Tip: I would recommend you book accommodation close to the place or the attraction that you are planning to visit. Remember that your surrounding area tends to dictate your expenses. For example, if you book a room in District 1, chances are you will end up eating and using the amenities in District 1 and its surrounding areas, which will cost you a lot more than comparable services or eateries in District 10 or 11.

What’s the best area to stay in Ho Chi Minh City on a budget?


The further away from the city center you are, the better the deals you will be able to get for a night’s stay.

That being said, staying further away from the city center can also mean a potentially longer commute when going out for dinner and activities due to heavy traffic in the city.

Remember, the average accommodation rates in District 1 are 20-30% higher than in District 10, 11, or Tan Binh.

What’s the best area to stay in Ho Chi Minh City for families?


Phu Nhuan and District 3 are the most suitable areas for families.

There you will find parks (Le Van Tam, Tao Dan, Turtle Lake), shopping malls, and many restaurants that are suitable for parents and children.
