“Very nice - well located - a pleasant stay”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

We stayed for 3 nights in Jan 2014. We upgraded our booking to a suite (we are a couple travelling with our teenage daughter). The upgrade was well worth the money. Beds were comfortable and the suite had 2 TV's and aircon units. The 12th floor was quiet and the views of the city at night improved on the daytime vista. The windows are large and can be slid open (are not sealed) and it was nice to be able to stand at night and soak up the atmosphere of the city.
We used the pool (on the roof), it was perfect and both times we were the only residents using it.
The only meals we ate at the hotel were the breakfasts which were OK, the usual fare - no complaints from us.
The hotel is well sited, an easy walk to the cathedral, zoo, museum. Immediately adjacent appears to be an are of Japanese businesses and restaurants which all look good. we ate one meal at an Italian restaurant around the corner, it was very good. We looked for Vietnamese food in the area and nothing was obvious. We had massages nearby, $15 for 90 minutes for hot stone massage, very good value. Recommended.
We caught a taxi to the night market from outside the hotel - the fare was aprox. $2 but got ripped off big time by the taxi driver on the return trip who helped himself to the contents of my wallet. While we talked he placed his newspaper over my hand (holding my open wallet) to show me an advertisemnt for an attraction while he dipped into my wallet with the other. Very fast and slick but he only got $15 (I use a second wallet for my cards and cash).. I was pissed at being taken so easily. I get the feeling it happens frequently - it was a nice taxi (car),
Anyway - the hotel - very nice, professional staff, clean. We would go back, pay the extra and get a suite, it isn't that much more expensive and is well worth it.

The hotel is centrally located in district one of Ho Chi Minh city and is very close to many shopping centers, fast food outlets and Japanese restaurants. Even though its a 3 star hotel, It's not because of a lack of service as staff were friendly and very helpful, feel free to approach them to inquire about the sights, shopping and where to get great local delicacies. The breakfast spread was great with a range of Vietnamese and Western food. The room was adequately equipped with all you need nothing fancy but practical. We wanted to try out the pool but it was a bit too cold for us. There was also a nice gym and sauna which either seemed under used or very well maintained. All in all i would definitely recommend this hotel for your stay in Ho Chi Minh.

Room Tip: Hotel provides money changing services if you're in need of local currency. Procurement services...

The hotel is centrally located and clos to many shop, restaurants.

It labels itself as 3 stars hotel. It os a really good 3 stars.

The breakfast is amazing, the staff is very friendly and service minded. The room is great equipped with all you need. The pool is the must!! Theu also have nice gym and sauna. I would say all our money is worth it here.

I don't see any shortfall of this hot.

I am very happy after my stay in May Hotel. They are well located close to the main attractions. In front there is one of the best spas in town. Behind the hotel you can find good restaurants.
Easy to move around. The room was clean with acceptable wifi speed.

Good 3/4 star hotel in walking distance to many sites.
We stayed for 1 night in two May Deluxe rooms which were reasonably spacious and as described.
Good indoor pool & gym which is one of the reasons we booked this hotel.
One minor criticism though, checkout policy is as usual up to 12pm, but found that we were locked out of our rooms at 10am using the electronic swipe keys. We went for a walk and when we came back at about 11am asked reception to reopen them, but then going up to our rooms, found the cleaner preparing them for new guests which is not on. On complaining to reception they said there was a misunderstanding, although not on our part as we had never indicated we were checking out early. Also as others have said one of the bell boys seemed a bit too keen to please.
Nevertheless we would stay here again and regard it as good value for money for a city centre hotel.

This is a typical local VN hotel.
I stayed for only one night. Check in 6 Nov & check out 7 Nov.
Breakfast spread was normal (like other VN local hotel).
Room was clean and spacious.
Concerige team was very friendly. I encountered 2 different bell boys and both were friendly and helpful; could speak simple English. Good job!
It was raining and I couldn't loan an umbrella. Concerige said there were only 2 and 1 already loaned out. This was pathetic because hotel should have some/several umbrellas.
Location was good and near to many restaurants and local attractions.
I took taxis (Vinasun) everywhere I go. Safe journeys but all drivers couldn't speak English. Pick up at hotel - please ask Concerige to help. Pick up at outside venue - please show hotel key pass.

Found May Hotel on trip advisor and am so glad I did. From the moment we walked in the door the staff couldn't do enough for us. Everyone was friendly, helpful and really interested in meeting our needs. The room was lovely and the facilities terrific. We even had the rooftop pool all to ourselves. It was clean and offered terrific views of HCMC. We had air conditioning, free bottled water, hot showers, comfortable bed - couldn't fault it for the price. Laundry service was efficient and very affordable. Breakfast was included and covered all nationalities. The staff are the loveliest people, especially Tai. We walked everywhere and only caught a cab when it rained. You are walking distance to Ben Thanh market and some terrific restaurants. Everything is only a short but chaotic cab ride away (and even that is unbelievably cheap). Loved, loved, loved Saigon and loved all the staff and the facilities at May Hotel. Thank you for making the start of our Vietnamese adventure so easy and comfortable.
