Yes the location is spot on, unless you are in a five star hotel you could not be closer to the centre of HCMC. Our family stayed here over Christmas this year and it was quite an experience. Arriving at around 8.30 in the evening 2 days before Xmas our complimentary taxi pulled up outside the hotel amongst the thousands...

While the hotel is centrally located to all of the major Ho Chi Minh attractions and inexpensive I would only recommend this for a stop over. The rooms are ok size wise but the beds are horribly hard or too soft. The furniture is old but clean, the hotel is trying to go for an 'older look; but it just...

The good thing regarding this hotel is its location right in the center of HCMC. And that's about it. The rooms are on the small side, 'dated' is the best possible description for furniture and bathroom. During our three-week trip to Vietnam, the staff at this hotel was definitely the most unfriendly and unhelpful we encountered. Not what you usually...

The room which I stayed was the Super Deluxe located on the 8th floor. Nice rooms and comfortable bed and pillows but rather dated furniture. Water pressure is a bit weak in the bathtub but room overall is clean. However the 9th floor is a function room and if a function is held during the weekend, the dragging and banging...

We booked this hotel during our last year trips to HCMC for 2 person via hotel website & got an upgrade to bigger room for the same price. Free Wifi in the room & complementary basket of fruits daily really nice comparing to the price we pay. Limited view from our room. Breakfast is good but a bit limited for...

Stayed there 2 times. For 3 weeks and for 1 night. Nothing special. Good location in the center. No view at all (some technical inner yard). Didn't eat their breakfast (although it was included) as it is much better to eat in the nearest "Pho 24". Stayed second time here just because had no booking in advance. Found another hotel...

I stayed 1 night in this hotel. The stuff and responsive. The breakfast was delicios and varied. Good location - at the centre of Ho Chi Minh City, near the City's square and Rex hotel. Massage was not very well, not strong, massage stuff is obsessive.

The Kimdo looks like a first class hotel, and the property is beautiful. We had contact with three people at reception, two bellhops and two people at the pool. All of them were unfriendly to us. The only one who smiled at all was the woman who greeted us at the door. The room was very average for this price...

We are sorry to report that this hotel did not live up to our expectations. Yes, it is centrally located , the breakfasts are good and the rooms fairly well appointed. But of all the hotels we stayed in in South East Asia, this one was the least enjoyable. Firstly communication was quite a problem. We had a trip booked...

Have stayed a few times at the Kim do and it is always a pleasant and friendly place to stay. The rooms are big and well decorated with timber finish. Staff are friendly and always helpful and the breakfast is simple but enough variety to start the day. Would highly recommend you stay here in Saigon, good value for the...
