“Great hotel in good city location”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

Stayed here 4 nights at the start of our holiday. Comfortable and spacious rooms. Good bathroom facilities. Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel has a good gym and spa area and one of the few hotels with a swimming pool in the city, which also has a bar area. We stayed in club rooms on the 10th floor, so had access to complimentary breakfast and refreshments throughout the day in the dedicated lounge area, with patio area where you get a good view across the city. There's also a park across the road if you fancy doing some early morning exercise, and we saw an aerobic class there. There's live entertainment in the lounge bar area on the ground floor in the evening. The hotel is also walking distance to the Ben Thanh market including a night market, where there are some great bargains to be had. It's a large hotel so not for those looking for an intimate boutique hotel, but a nice place to stay at the beginning or end of a holiday.

Room Tip: It's worth splashing out on a suite especially if you are in a group or family, but the other ro...

We stayed at this hotel when we first arrived in Vietnam and after traveling around Vietnam stayed there again for 3 nights before leaving. The location, the rooms and the staff were all great - and we really enjoyed the pool. It was my son's 14th birthday while we were staying at the New World and several staff members wished him a Happy Birthday, and in a really nice touch, a couple of small birthday cakes were delivered to the room for him. Highly recommended.

Ho Chi Minh is a little less developed than Hanoi. In my suit, I initially felt out of place but as soon as the limo dropped me off at the hotel I felt at home.

Definitely worth the money, rooms are clean, service is impeccable and if you're bored there is some local shopping available at the Ben Thanh market.

Compared to a lot of local hotels nearby, this hotel does stand out from the rest. Recommended for business travellers in Ho Chi Minh

I recently commentated in the Fox Sports Tiger Street Football Asia finals and we stayed at the New World Hotel in Saigon
.
Convenient for the Airport hence did not get blocked in traffic .Also very close to night markets (but full of con men)

Great top class Gym and open air swimming pool also high quality breakfasts. Deserves to be 5 star.

Room Tip: Beds were huge and soft and they gave you a choice

We stayed on the executive floor and enjoyed free happy hour, breakfast and snacks throughout the day. The fitness center has elliptical machines, bikes and treadmills with tv's and is open 24/7. The hotel is in close walking distance to restaurants and a convenience store.

It is a true five star hotel with every aspect of it deserving of this rating. The rooms, bedding, breakfast, pool, all are first class. Plus perhaps the best feature of this hotel is that it is around the corner from a Starbucks. What a treat. The only issue with the New World is that it is not in the "Opera House area" with the other 5 star hotels. This may be considered a plus or a negative. But in any case it is only a very short distance away. I would highly recommend the New World to anyone visiting Saigon.

Very friendly staff and great location, but the rooms could do with a makeover. I.e. the bathroom is like 90ties style and one can see that the furniture and carpet is not new. Overall a hotel i would recommend, but just don't expect the best in class as some describe it.
