Fodor's Expert Review Thao Dien Boutique Hotel
189–197 Nguyen Van Huong , Ho Chi Minh City, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam Fodor's Choice
Part of the scenic riverfront Thao Dien Village complex, this welcoming boutique hotel on landscaped grounds is a celebration of textures, with a giant knitted installation in the lobby and rooms combining corduroy cushions, muslin drapes, and polished cement floors. The outside areas of Thao Dien Village are just as lavish, enticing you from one section to another, leading you through the ficus trees, past ponds and fountains to the Italian restaurant, the Vietnamese restaurant, and the seemingly secret table settings overlooking the river.
- visually appealing urban hideaway
- friendly staff
- there's no boat shuttle service, making downtown a long taxi ride away, especially during rush hours
