“Great location and good hotel for business travellers”
Reviewed 6 March 2017

The best thing about this hotel is the location. Right in the middle of the town and opposite the big park. We stayed for 2 nights. The hotel is more for business travelers who are just in and out of the hotel most of the time.

They do serve good breakfast on the terrace and the view from the terrace is excellent.

The rates of the hotel does not justify the quality of rooms and the other decor, The rooms smelt of cigarette smoke and somewhat stale smell. Our room had no windows and quite claustrophobic. In short, not value for money.

Room Tip: choose rooms with windows , otherwise quite claustrophobic

I asked the Trip Advisor Forum for advice on a hotel in Saigon and as usual they delivered. I said I was not interested in fancy lobbies, multiple restaurants, spas, pool, gyms, etc. I wanted a good location, spacious room, updated amenities. Elios Hotel was suggested. It was exactly what I was looking for. I booked it through Booking.com for a large room with a king size bed for $42. per night, breakfast, taxes included.

The hotel is in district 1 and within walking distance to the major tourist sites. There were lots of restaurants in the area and on Fridays and Saturdays there is a street food market directly across the street.

After reading the reviews I asked for a room on an upper floor but not on the 11th floor directly under the restaurant. Our room was on the 9th floor so you could not hear the roar of traffic or any people but you could still hear the honking of horns. I don't think you can get away from that. Luckily it doesn't go on all night. There were windows going across one entire wall so the room was light and airy. The air conditioning was good, the WIFI worked well, the bed was comfortable, the shower was fine. We called to ask for extra pillows and they were delivered within 5 minutes. The television had CNN and a couple other English speaking channels. There were multiple outlets for charging phones, kindles, etc. The room lacked any type of decor but for the price who cares?

There is a restaurant on the roof where we had breakfast. You could eat inside or outside. The buffet had a decent selection of Eastern and Western foods so you could have soup, salad, beef, noodles but also eggs, croissants, bacon in the same meal. Some things were good and some were bad. It was hit or miss.

This is a hotel I would definitely return to if I ever get back to Saigon.

We visited the hotel for a short while on our visit to Ho Chi Minh city and the views were beautiful from our rooms and from also the sky room at the top which was fabulous. The breakfast was alright... the bed were comfy and very nice pillows and nice rooms but there were a few cracks in the rooms where I could see the road below. The building wasn't very soundproof and was very noisy, waking us all up at early hours in the morning. The staff were too friendly either we didn't feel very welcome unlike other hotels we have been to. Also to anyone that is planning on visiting here beware of the viscous fast closing doors of the lifts!! Over all it was an alright stay though I could have done worse lol

Very well located and great quality/price ratio. Clean rooms with rooftop restaurant and bar, great all you can eat breakfast buffet included. Located in district one, near buses moving to many other cities. Few minutes walk from parks, market, cathedral, museum etc

They are not very flexible if your reservation is different than the original booking. You will pay the full regular rate for additional services.
The rooms were good size and clean. The staff was helpful but followed hotel rules without flexability.
Breakfast had good selection and located on the roof with good view of the area.

Location is great close to markets and a good walk from major attractions. The area around it is very active with plenty of restaurants and bars.
