The 168 room Hotel des Arts, MGallery, opened in late 2015 and is Saigon’s newest 5 star hotel. Its restrained elegance makes it a nice addition to the city’s accommodatiion offerings. It's located a 5 minute cab ride from the downtown area of the city.

Five minutes by cab from Saigon’s wining and dining heart - and closer to some of the city’s attractions, including the War Remnants Museum and the Reunification Palace. There are restaurants and some local life close by too.


While MGallery hotels in Vietnam are mostly flamboyant affairs, Hotel Des Arts Saigon has opted for a more subdued feel - and it works well.

Two large timber doors open onto a lobby that’s warm and welcoming. Decor is a mix of classical and modern - everything handled with restraint.

With the exception of the suite (60sqm), other room categories, (there are 6) are a comfortable 30sqm. Differing views across the city distinguish them. 

The best way to enjoy the city views may be to head up to the top floor for a swim, or a drink at the poolside bar.

By night, the Social Club on the 23rd floor, is also worth checking out. At time of writing, it was one of Saigon's busiest weekend watering holes.

Free wifi, rooftop pool and bar, restaurants, spa, gym
