Nikko Hotel Ho Chi Minh
We stayed in the incredible Nikko Hotel Ho Chi Minh City and would stay there again without a doubt. With reasonable pricing, we were blown away by the amazing service, high-class facilities and cleanliness of the hotel.
Comfort and a high level of cleanliness is so important when visiting a city like Ho Chi Minh City as having somewhere amazing to retreat to after a day exploring a culture so different to your own, makes the world of different to the whole trip.
Rooms @ The Nikko Hotel
The standard rooms were huge in our opinion. They had a shower room, separate toilet and stand-alone bath, perfect for a long soak after a day exploring in the hot, humid weather.
Each night on our return to the room, we had handmade chocolates waiting for us on our pillows (I’m not going to lie…there may have been a race back to the room each night to have first pick!)
The Location Of Nikko Hotel
The location of the hotel was perfect for getting around and all major points of interest in the city were easily accessible from here.
It was about 2 kilometres to the major markets in the city centre (Bến Thành Market),and 3 kilometres to some of the major historic tourist attractions such as the Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica.
We walked to both areas of the city from the hotel on numerous occasions but if walking isn’t your thing, there is a complimentary shuttle bus from the hotel to the city that leaves frequently throughout the day.
Facilities @ The Nikko
The Hotel also had a well-equipped gym and beautiful rooftop swimming pool.
There were complimentary towels available in each and were never too busy which was ideal for a relaxing start to the morning or chill out in the afternoon.
The Bar @ The Nikko
The Hotel bar was the perfect place to finish off a busy day and I will admit, we had one or two night caps there during our stay. Our cocktail of choice was the Saigon Rock, a ginger twist to the perfect mojito, and the perfect partner to the candied nuts that accompanied our drinks. A pianist on a grand piano and a honey-voiced singer set the ambience in the bar, adding the class you would expect from the incredible hotel.
The Food @ The Nikko
We didn’t actually eat in the restaurant because we were so busy out but the breakfast there was something else. The choices on offer were the usual , egg station, hot food items, pastries, fruit, cured meats, cheeses, fresh cereals and granalos, fresh juices but on top of that a wonderful Japanese section, which were served in little almost like tapas plate style and every day a different Vietnamese soup.
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So definitely worth fueling up here.
