Ma Maison Boutique Hotel

Address: 656/52 Cach Mang Thang Tam Street, Ward 11, District 3
Book Room Online Here
A super little boutique hotel in the more Vietnamese district 3. This is adjacent to district 1 so the hotel is ideally placed for all the major attractions. It is a home from home really, those extra touches that make someone feel welcome, are in evidence everywhere; Sesame cookies and scented cinnamon sticks in the rooms. Beautiful rooms, exceptional staff and a wonderful ambience. There is no lift in the hotel so make sure you ask for a lower floor unless you are fit enough to climb stairs. However, it is worth the climb to stay in this delightful little French styled hotel.

District 2 is over the river from District 1 and accessible over the Saigon Bridge. This is a district favoured by many expats and as result there are plenty of western style cafés, bars and restaurants. The air quality is better here and the whole place has a peaceful laid back appeal. It is only 15 – 20 minutes to the heart of town by taxi and they are not expensive. The hotel is fabulous, built right on the banks of the Saigon River, the rooms are tastefully decorated and the swimming pool area is pretty unbeatable, complete with tennis and basketball courts.. The riverside restaurant is exceptional. For those who like the water, the free Residence riverboat taxi into town gives a unique perspective of this amazing city.
