Help with hotel in Saigon - An Lam Saigon River or Hotel des Arts??

Jump to last reply

We are heading back to Saigon at the end of a 3-week trip. This will be our third visit to Saigon. We are 60 and 70 years old, we've seen all the sights in the city, we are foodies so we love the availability of sensational restaurants, and the shopping.

We've only stayed in District 1 and we 'were' planning to stay again because there is so much going on right out side your hotel door. We were considering Hotel des Arts which sounds like a great new place.

Then I stumbled upon a raving review of An Lam Saigon River hotel. It looks amazing and totally different than any place in District 1. An Lam is right on the river, beautifully appointed, secluded, serene and away from all the action of District 1.

I am ready to book a room at An Lam but my husband is concerned it is too remote. I think that after 3 weeks of travel - R&R sounds good to me. We've seen all the sights so I think taking their speedboat shuttle will make it easy to revisit but then head back to relax.

Has anyone stayed at An Lam? Are there restaurants or sites to be seen in this neighborhood?

I need help convincing my husband that this would be a perfect end to our trip. Any help would be great.

Thanks!
