Hotel Advice

I'm in the early planning stages of a trip to HCMC.

We're 4 adults.

I've narrowed my hotel search to the following: Hotel Majestic, Hotel Niko, Hotel Rex, Liberty Central and the Family Inn Saigon.

I realize that Family Inn is a more economy style hotel.

We like interesting hotels which are accessible to the city, with clean rooms, and reasonably pleasant staff.

I want to avoid a generic chain-type hotel which we could find in the US.

Given this, do any of these stand apart compared to the others?

Thanks for your thoughts.

We are planning a 10 day holiday in Vietnam in July. We thought 3 nights in HCMC, then on to Hoi An for 7 nites. I have been researching on here and also in the a Lonely a Planet, but have some specific questions I was hoping somebody may be able to assist me with.

1. Will we need a visa (travelling from Australia) ?

2. Recommendation of luxurious hotel in a District 1, budget of approximately $200/nt

3. Have decided against the train to get to Hoi An, but wondering what is the airline that people use ?

4. We have decided on the Sunrise Hoi An Beach Resort, but not positive on this ?? Also thinking of Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort ???? We love luxury, big beautiful rooms.

Thanks everybody

Hi HolidayLover006'

Yes you need a visa,there are several options we always get our visa prior to departure, some prefer visa on arrival however We prefer to go straight to immigrationwhen we arrive.

Best hotel in Sagion in my opinion is the Caravelle, great location but if you are looking for less luxury but still in a good location then look at the Norfolk hotel. Majestic hotel is also good.

Vietnam airlines fly's to Danang where you get a taxi to hoi an, cost should be around 500'000 dong or $25 aus.

You can book on line directly with Vietnam airlines.

Think that beach may have been washed away more at Sunrise, Victoria has great rooms and villas but the beach is not as good as It was once, storms have eroded this. Palm Gardens offers a better beach is this is what you are after. We prefer the Victoria.

Victoria some times have stay pay deals ie stay 4 pay 3. Check out online hotel websites.

Lastly you can always email the hotels and ask some questions' this might help you make your decision.

Whatever you choose I'm sure you will enjoy.

Cheers

Sue
