The apartment is very well located not far from District 1 , I was there for work but would be V suitable for tourists. Just a bit away from the V busy District 1 , also a lot of construction in D1 right now. Really a great place to stay and I rate it 10/10. At the apartment V clean building great staff , security , concierges etc . Also V big swimming pool & V well equiped Gym. Ms Phuoung (local agent who stays in building) always available. Dealing with Jim was dead easy , he responds to any questions very fast.
So in summary
When you visit Saigon stay here - no brainer (also a lot , meaning really a lot construction in District one centre right now - best to stay a bit out)
This was our second time staying at Jim's apartment and it was as great as our first visit. Jim and his assistant, Ms. Phuong, are wonderful hosts. Communication is easy and they are so helpful.
We love this apartment because we have everything we need when we stay here. It's a great escape from the busyness of the city, but still close enough that you can get to the center of town in just a few minutes by taxi. We love that the internet is super fast in Jim's apartment and that there's always lots of extra towels (seems like a given, but most Airbnb hosts never provide enough towels, even when we stay for several weeks!).
Thanks for everything, Jim! We hope to visit again soon. :)
Really neat apartment and yes, it is a spectacular view from the extremely comfortable bed! Friends of mine were in hotels in the middle of the city paying three times as much for less of a room.
The managing agent is efficient and helpful (even if you lock yourself out at two in the morning...)
Its a short taxi ride into the downtown area or you can just step outside the door and go behind the tower block to be in real Saigon streets, paying real Saigon prices for food and drink.
Vey enjoyable luxury stay.
Ian, thank you for the excellent review and please do not be concerned about losing your key. Ms Phuong enjoyed you s a guest and if you stay again we will give you you as many keys as you need :)
This is my second time t James Saigon apartment. It is wonderfully located so close to District 1. I used the beautiful rooftop pool many times. Great free fast wifi. And Annie, the person you will get the keys from is so nice. I also rented a motorbike from her. Honest and easy going. I'll be going back again, couldn't be happier :)
Our stay at Jim's apartment was wonderful. It was a perfect home for us in Saigon. Really clean and super convenient. There is a market downstairs, a gym and pool in the next building and taxis pull right up to the front of the building. Just a short, cheap taxi ride to get downtown. We are working full time during our travels and having fast internet is critical for us, so we were thrilled by how fast and reliable the wifi in the building is. Jim and his assistant, Ms. Phuong, were both really helpful before and during our stay. A great place to stay!
Guests like the two of you, Sondra and Jeremy, make the task of being a AirBNB landlord a dream! Thanks you your your kind words and come back again! Jim
This was a great stay. A very well-equipped apartment with everything you'll need. Excellent security, two swimming pools and plenty of mini-marts and eateries all within the apartment complex. The host, Jim, was very helpful and quick to reply to queries, and the agent Phuong is also super helpful and close at hand.
To find this quality of accommodation in a hotel would cost a fortune; this place is a bargain.
District 1 (the city centre) is easy to get to by taxi or motorbike taxi, but you may want to hire a motorbike to get around more easily.
This place is absolutely perfect for a single traveller or a couple. We will definitely stay here again.
The apartment was great with great views and all the amenities of home - kitchen, good toilet, plenty of towels. The apartment is located in a complex that has a great gym, coffee shop, laundry, bakery, 2 groceries, banks, pharmacies and restaurants. You actually don't even need to leave the complex to get things done. The service was great, when the propane gas for the stove was out it was replaced within 20 minutes. We ordered pizza while waiting but the gas came before the pizza. Would definitely recommend James' apartment.
Very nice apt., just as advertised. Nice view of the city. Internet speed is excellent, helped me got my work done.
I enjoyed staying there and definitely will rent again when I'm in town.
James' place was absolutely fantastic! It was a nice home away from home while I was in Saigon. And the view from your bed overlooking the city is gorgeous. So nice to have a pool to use on the hot days. Annie, the woman who works with James was so nice. She meet me at the place and and everything about the building. Its such a pleasure working with nice people.
I would highly recommend anyone staying in Saigon to stay at James place, the location was perfect.
This was my first visit to HCMC and I could not have been more happier with the personal and prompt communications from my host, Mr. James Gilbert and his on-site assistant, Mai Phuong/ Annie. They both addressed all my questions regarding the property, transportation to the city, and the shopping and eating conveniences nearby. The property had a great view of the city at night, felt very secure with 24 security and the room setup was more than adequate for our stay. I would highly recommend James to anyone interested in staying in a very clean and safe unit while visiting HCMC. He and his assistant were both very gracious host's. Thank you.
