Queen Ann Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam manages to tick all the boxes a savvy traveler wants in a three-star hotel: clean rooms, decent interiors, good service, and fast and free Wi-Fi connection. We stayed in this hotel for two nights, and here’s my comprehensive review of Queen Ann Hotel.

As part of our arrangement with Transpipol Travel and Tours, the agency driver fetched us from Tan Son Nhat International Airport at midnight and we arrived safely at the hotel in about 20 minutes without traffic. At the reception area, we submitted our passports and hotel accommodation voucher. In return, we were given the room key and breakfast vouchers, and the hotel porter helped us with our luggage. Checking in was a breeze.

Review of Queen Ann Hotel Saigon (Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam)

Ambiance: ★★★★☆

For a three-star hotel that’s five years old, the interior design was quite classy and well furnished. The lobby wasn’t much of a looker, but it’s simple, elegant, and spacious with a number of sofa sets enough to seat up to three groups of guests. There’s one elevator working but it’s fine. The location is convenient for most since it’s near the city’s tourist attractions, 10 minutes away from Ben Thanh market, department stores, and other commercial buildings.

The Superior Double/Twin Room’s layout was just right. We had two single beds, mini fridge, TV (showing local channels), dressing area, cabinet, slippers, and good lighting system. I just hated that the pillow was too high for my neck. Good thing I brought my doll which I used as a head pillow and hugged the hotel’s pillow to feel warm and cozy instead. AC was okay and temperature and power could be controlled via the remote control.

The bathroom featured nice amenities and modern touches. It was fitted with complete toiletries, good plumbing, and sets of towels. The shower had great water pressure and hot water was reliable during our stay. There’s also a hair blow dryer to dry hair faster, but unfortunately it didn’t work at all. Anyway, I liked that the shower area was installed with a glass enclosure to prevent water from splashing out to the toilet floor.

Service: ★★★★☆

Hotel receptionists and frontline employees could speak in English but not the rest of the staff. We did not need much assistance from them because no problems were encountered during our short stay, thank goodness. Housekeeping was good and our room was made up each day. Servers in the restaurants were also accommodating and attentive to orders.

Food: ★★★☆☆

The restaurant was at the basement of the hotel. We had buffet for breakfast and it was great the food offerings were varied in two consecutive days. The buffet table presented both local Vietnamese food such as pho as well as the “normal food” for breakfast such as eggs, sausages, rice, bread, bacon, etc. to make ourselves feel at home. Drinks available were juices, coffee, and water.

Queen Ann Hotel’s restaurant does not only cater breakfast but also serves a la carte items for lunch and dinner. But if you’re looking for really tasty food in Vietnam that can strike harmony especially in the heart of a picky eater, better go some place else for a more exciting and pleasing eating experience. 😉

Black and glossy furniture with mirrors in the restaurant provided a more luxurious impression.

Price for Value: ★★★★☆

Since we booked through our travel agent, we might have had a better discounted price for our room. Hotel pricing from Agoda shows USD 51.90 (about PhP 2380) per night, but this of course depends on the chosen dates and season of the year. Based on this rate, I think Queen Ann Hotel Saigon has a fair price for value. It’s not considered as a “budget hotel” and certainly not a boutique hotel either. I recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Vietnam for a vacation, holiday or business trip.

      I recommend that you plan a tour to Vietnam soon with your family. There are many places that are worth visiting and you will have fun exploring Ho Chi Minh City. 🙂

      Yup, you can consider Queen Ann Hotel in your trip to Vietnam. Check Agoda.com for good deals or better yet, book an arrangement with a travel agent so you can have a worry-free travel and accommodation.

      We’re glad that we did not have to wake up very early to search where we could have breakfast outside the hotel because our stay included breakfast vouchers. 🙂

      While this hotel does not offer an incredible view of the city, you can have comfort and enjoyment since it’s near the city’s best tourist attractions. We just walked our way to the hotel from the restaurants and shopping centers by asking the locals for directions. 🙂

    This looks like a great place to stay for that price. The rooms don’t look bad at all. I love the door design. I would definitely stay there some day.

      This is all we need whenever we’re traveling outside our country. At least, there should be comfortable sheets and clean toilet. This hotel is groomed to make visitors feel welcome anytime.

      I just thought that there should be more tables and chairs to accommodate more people having breakfast all at the same time in the morning. What we did was we shared a table with another traveler and carried a good conversation with her. 🙂

    It doesn’t look like it’s 5 years old already. They have nice interiors ah.

    Btw, there are 2 photos showing the TV and mini fridge 🙂

      Yup, I really prefer staying in relatively cheaper hotels and spending more on food and stuff rather than paying more to stay in a crazy luxurious room only to sleep in it at night. 🙂

    what a beautiful hotel. Sorry the food wasn’t better. I just wrote a passage where I was completely disappointed by the food of a hotel.

      You’ll be happy with its central location. There’s no hassle to call for a tuktuk ride or just walk your way to the best restaurants and tourist places in the city. 🙂
