Other Things to Note
* SAIGON - YOU WILL NEVER GET BORED:
I have been grown up and living here for more than 25 years, I‘ve been in a few countries but Saigon is always the place I want to be most, a place to return, a place to live and enjoy a real interesting life. Saigon never stops surprising me when I thought I know my city so well but oops there is always something new await for me everyday. I have just found out a great “Bún Thịt Nướng” (grill pork noodle) street food hidden right behind of a very famous Coffee shop on Dong Khoi Street, it has been always there for 10 years and I have just known it. Or a place on the top of a very big and nice shopping mall in central dist 1 but serve a set lunch only 50,000 VND (2 dollars) for a full set of Vietnamese lunch meal.
So believe me, you will love Saigon once you have sometime to spend here. People are nice and friendly, streets full of motorbikes and noises but full of energy and joy. I live at my house for all of my life, we have just been rebuilt the house for 5 years, so the house is new but the people and the location is still the same. There is so much things happen in the area that you will find it amazing to discover everyday and of course if you stay here, I would like to show you some of my favorite places of Saigon. A 10 years old nice smoothies and juice stand, a great and authentic Pho restaurant has just opened by a northern guy, a nice rooftop bar just next to Ben Thanh market, a day and night market with so much interesting things to buy for your souvenirs, a pizza restaurant owned by a Japanese which is so tasty and I guarantee you will be fall in love to their pizzas once you try them, etc.
I feel very lucky to be born, grow up and live at my current house now, not only because it has amazing location, but also it's like a connection between me and this city. It's located in an alley which is so center and quite, the fact that it is away from noisy pack back area is the most appealing with so many visitors but if you want to walk to the pack back street, it takes you only 5 minutes to walk there, you will see a very different living style there. From my house, you can easily to discover many different areas of Saigon, you can take motorbike, taxi or bus to everywhere and if you don't know your plan yet, I would like to give you some suggestion from a perspective of a Vietnamese who lived and grown up here. There are so many places which are not listed in your guide book but only a local can show you.
Last but not least, myself and my family are very friendly and hospitable people. We have welcomed so many guests overseas and I am sure that you will find a very nice, comfy and warm stay at my place !
- Be quiet after 11pm
- No smoking inside the house
- No prostitution
- If you have friend visit, please inform me or my mom, they need to leave after 11pm. If they stay over, we will need to charge extra 10 USD / person / night and we will keep the ID card or passport.
As other guests have no doubt mentioned, the home is in a great central location, but a little away from the westerner-saturated part of district 1. Room was fine, elevator a bonus, family nice, fine with limited contact, Vanya helpful, younger brother delightful. Free water provided. Bedand pillows firm which was fine by me. Hot water takes a little while to warm up. No construction noise at night.
The reservation was canceled 3 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
It was my first try to use Airbnb. But I really did a good choice! This house is located in convenient place, close to a market. My room was 4th floor using lift and the room was so cozy.
Vania and her family are kind (especially Mon). As I wanted to feel a local life, am satisfied with it.
Only one night stay is too short to communicate, maybe next time I will stay longer!
AMAZING host and apartment :) This is the best place to stay if you are visiting Saigon. Van is an excellent host and provides the best local guides and tours! She arranged for me to visit Cu Chi tunnels, army museum and took me all over to the best spots of the city!! She can arrange the best tours of Vietnam. Her guides are really awesome. The apartment is super clean and located in the best part of the city walking distance to everything. The AC is great, there is an elevator, TV, and all amenities provided! The neighborhood is local and everything is at your doorstep. This was my first trip to Vietnam and Van and her family made it a delight! I highly recommend staying here. Van and her family are wonderful people and I will definitely stay with her again! Thank you again Van !!! Five stars!
Amazing host and apartment! Super clean and nice! Van is was the best host and made the trip wonderful :) The location is amazing. Located in the best part of the city walking distance to everything! Landmarks, transportation, restaurants, cafes, shops right outside! Very safe. I highly recommend the apartment and host. A+ Thank you so much !! :))
Vania is very charismatic and accommodating person! She will make you feel comfortable and have interesting conversations about anything from local culture to industrial design.
Phenomenal! Vania ensured that everything was perfect before my arrival and during my stay. She was extremely flexible with check in and check out times which made my trip worry free, a blessing given my constantly changing schedule. If I needed anything like an iron or need to wash my clothes Vania and her family took care of it with haste. I had lunch with Vania twice during my stay and the food was to die for! More importantly, Vania and her family are vibrant people who have an amazing sense of humor and they are always around to help with anything!
Spacious! Everything is clean and organized. It’s one of the specious apartments I’ve seen and I actually could run laps in my room! More importantly, your room comes with a private bathroom and blazing fast WIFI. I felt very comfortable living here for 1 week, I could see myself living in this apartment for very long periods of time as if it were my home.
Convenient! The apartment is in the center of District 1, the most central and booming part of HCMC. You can find a peaceful park down the road, all your chain restaurants nearby, delicious local food a few yards from your front door, major shopping center a few blocks down the road and most popular tourist attractions are within 10-15 minutes walk (most of the time is taken up by you gaining the confidence to cross the streets, do n't worry you'll understand once you arrive in HCMC) such as Ben Thanh market, Opera House, City Hall and Bitexco Financial Tower.
Lastly, I want to take this opportunity to personally thank Vania for sharing her amazing home with me. Can't wait to come back!

I'm Vân but can call me Vania in case some people can't speak my original name. Vania's sense is "Bring good new", that means i want to bring good new to everyone i know and i also love to receive good new from others.
I love Art the most, that's why now i'm an designer to create many wonderful things for life, people and myself.
Furthermore, i have passion for Music, Movie, Book, Photography, Travelling and Cooking.
I'm also a member of a volunteer tourguide club named Saigonhotpot in Ho Chi Minh City, if you want to travel Saigon with a free tourguide, you can ask me.
Moreover, i'm Vietnamese tutor, so if you want to know more about Vietnamese, i'm glad to teach my language.
Now i've just travelled around Vietnam, but for sure in the near future, i will discover another countries. When i start travelling, hope i will meet nice host through Airbnb, i'm not grumpy person so don't worry, just please host me well if i meet you (someone i haven't known yet).
Last but not least, i'm a nice host, you can check it true or not when you rent my house. I love to give a "friend" tour to my guests (if guests love that), but it depends on my time, sometimes i'm very very busy and you will not see my face. For sure if i have time, will help you go around and know more about my city.
Hm think i write too much about myself, it's time for me to stop.
Thank you for reading me !
