August 2019, while traveling 3 weeks in Vietnam I did stay 3 days in Saigon and found Le Duy Grand Hotel a great hotel to stay in Saigon. Not located in the tourist area but in the real local Vietnamese streets of Ho Chi Min City. Staff was always smiling, friendly and service minded. All rooms have private bathroom with bathtub with shower, TV, air-conditioning, mini-bar and free drinking water. The hotel offers a small swimming pool and a great breakfast buffet. And although hardly used the hotel has a rooftop garden on the 13th floor from where you have a great sunset view (but take your own drinks with you). Highly recommended! For more information see Le Duy Grand Hotel Saigon.
Near the hotel are ATM's, banks, restaurants, supermarket and a few pubs. Beer lover should have a look at Bia Craft Artisan Ales (about 500m from the hotel). About 100m from the hotel is Highlands Coffee, Vietnamese biggest coffee chain and serving besides coffee also cakes and snacks. Opposite of the hotel is Papa's Chicken (also serving pizza).
