ideas - cheapest hotel that's comfortable with pool and bar

Anyone suggest ideal hotel fitting above criteria. Bar more important than pool.

Central location too. Thinking of travelling May 2014 for 10 days. Did Cambodia last year and loved it.

Gary, bars are everywhere - no need to hide away inside your hotel, get out and people watch, HCMC is a great place for this past time:-) Hotels with pools are not going to be at the cheaper end of the market due to the limited space available and the cost of land tax. It sounds like you should look to stay in District 1 which is central to most of the attractions. When in HCMC I stay at the Liberty Central which has a pool, open air bar on the footpath level and very comfortable rooms and great breakfast buffet. We tend to stay away from the hotel bars for our drinks though, we have our favourite 'beer lady' just around the corner from the Liberty Central, opposite the Ben Thanh market, just great for the atmosphere,

Another vote for the Liberty Central but you don't say what your budget is.

Cheap means different to different people.

Sadly I think you are chasing a dream if you think a pool and bar can be had on the cheap. Even if paying more, I'd still be more inclined to go to a beach location rather than hide out in a hotel in a city. As mentioned bars are everywhere. And HCMC's idea of pool and bars doesn't match Cambodia's unless paying mega bucks.
