As one of the former major political centers of French Indochina, Ho Chi Minh has preserved a lot of the colonial grandeur of old Saigon. This is especially true in District 1, where classic hotels with rich histories sit by iconic monuments and boulevards. Of course, there are also more modern offerings, featuring contemporary takes on traditional Vietnamese design. All of the gay-friendly hotels below are in the central District 1, where most of the major landmarks are – choose one that sits slightly west in order to be close to both the sights and the gay bars.
♥ Contemporary design with vintage Saigon feel
♥ Awesome rooftop bar and pool
♥ Fantastic beds
♥ Great location for sightseeing
Opened in 2015, the multi-award-winning Hotel des Arts Saigon is a beautiful homage to 1930’s Saigon and French Indochina, offering vintage luxury with a contemporary feel. Rooms and suites blend traditional Vietnamese decor and furnishings with a monochrome palette and clean, modern lines. All of them have heavenly beds and big, powerful showers. There are two restaurants serving fine Western and Asian cuisine, an elegant cafe, and an awesome rooftop bar with an adjacent infinity pool, both of which provide top-notch city views. Landmarks such as Notre Dame Cathedral, the Independence Palace, and the War Remnants Museum are all a short walk away. Hotel des Arts Saigon is one of the most booked gay hotels in Ho Chi Minh.
♥ Beautiful Vietnamese design
♥ Deep stone tub and garden in every room
♥ Lovely rooftop pool
♥ Upmarket Saigon location
The Myst Dong Khoi features a gorgeous contemporary approach to Vietnamese design. White structures with modern lines contrast with dark traditional wood used for furnishings, floorings, and decorative elements. Every spacious room has a luxurious, extra-large bed and beautiful artisanal furnishings, but it’s the deep stone bathtub set among relaxing gardens that will make you fall in love with the place. The large rooftop pool, surrounded by trees and loungers, is stunning. There is also an excellent spa, a small but well-equipped gym, and two atmospheric and delicious restaurants. The gay-friendly hotel is right by the harbor and only a couple of minutes from the iconic Nguyen Hue Street.
