Bay Hotel Ho Chi Minh

The Bay Hotel Ho Chi Minh is a boutique hotel in District 1, surrounded by historical sites, attractions, shopping malls, and offices. It offers boutique service with a philosophy of urban comfort, offering 236 rooms in a 16-storey 4-star hotel. Guests can enjoy a stylish restaurant, rooftop pool, and bar facing the Saigon River. The hotel is a favourite destination for business and leisure travelers, offering unparalleled service in the city’s heart.

Owned and managed by Bay Hotels and Resorts, an independent hotel group in Singapore, the Bay Hotel Ho Chi Minh is in a class on it's own. Hordes of tourist groups stay at this property, which is a testament to it's popularity in terms of location, service, comfort and value. The group made its debut by opening Bay Hotel Singapore back in 2012. With remarkable results, its second property was opened in the bustling District 1 of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. In 2023, the group opened a new hotel in Da Nang (Bay Capital Da Nang)

We visited and stayed with the hotel, one lovely weekend in the middle of April 2024, and were pleasantly surprised with it's superb location, nestled right in the heart of the District 1 area of Saigon, close to the main drag of the harbour-front along Ton Duc Thang, tucked right in middle of the Nguyen Sieu Coffee Zone enclave, and sitting right next to Japan-town in Quan 1.

It is also well positioned and close to all the main cultural sites, within walking distance to the Opera House near Hai Ba Trung, Vincom Center, Nguyen Hue Walking street, People's Committee of Ho Chi Minh, Independent Palace and numerous tourist and governmental sites and monuments. It is also close to Districts 2, 4 and 7, and I love the accessibility of this hotel.

We checked into the 15th floor, and had a room with a great view of the Ton Duc Thang street and harborfront and also with the Cau (bridge) heading towards District 2. The room was super comfortable, sheets crisp and clean, bathroom modern, amenities and mini fridge complete along with refreshing toiletries and a super fast WIFI for me to do my work. The hotel comes equipped with a lovely rooftop bar termed Propeller (superb views of Saigon here) and an awesome swimming pool with lovely scenic city views, so we did a few laps as well as a few rounds of fitness and weights at the great gym, superb!

Chic Restaurant & Bar

CHIC Asian-Flavours, as the name says it all, epitomizes stylish, casual dining rich in flavours from Vietnamese, Western, Singaporean and other cuisines in a minimalist environment. Whether you are looking for a spicy kick, a sour tang, a hearty bite, an exotic aroma, or a diverse selection, we can find something that delight our taste buds at CHIC restaurant.

We had a couple of meals at Chic @Bay Hotel, including the daily buffet breakfast with my daily yoghurt, eggs, pho, porridge, main dishes, Indian food and Western condiments along with Vietnamese-prepared dishes, variety was packed, well done on this! I also had a nicely-grilled Angus ribeye steak (which comes with a merlot red wine sauce melangé with shallots confit, mushroom and watercress salad), a grilled chicken chop steak (that consisted of a marinated honey and soy chicken served with mashed potatoes), to sample their International offerings.

I also tried their Asian offerings, which included a Wok fried beef with onion (which is essentially a tasty wok beef loin, that is served with white onions {so tasty} jasmine rice and dark soya sauce) as well as Hainanese Chicken rice (primarily steamed chicken rice served with chilli sauce and ginger puree). Drinks were super healthy so I had lots of fresh Vietnamese fruit juice, including pineapple, watermelon and coconut juice, very refreshing!

A truly enjoyable stay with the Bay Hotel brand - our rating is pegged at 8/10

We would like to express our gratitude and compliments to the following staff, who demonstrated exemplary attitude and a service-centric aptitude that made our stay so enjoyable and memorable, including Theresa and Moon from Sales, Linda from the Front Office, Jolie from Guest Services, as well and Robert, Doanh and Anh from the F&B team. The team truly took care of me, from check-in, site walk, all meals and check-out and also answering calls in my room, with cordial service from the housekeeping team.
