    Good value, very clean with helpful staff. Location was great and the breakfast was lovely on the roof-top with a fantastic view over Ho Chi Minh City.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Elios Hotel Ho Chi Minh City

    Un servicio de 1ª clase en un 3 estrellas

    from

    Un magnífico y nuevo hotel en el corazón de la ciudad. El servicio es increíble. Con el desayuno incluido y con un montón de opciones para tomar. Tiene un gimnasio, que viene muy bien trás una comida pesada, y que está equipado con varias máquinas y tiene unas preciosas vistas sobre la ciudad. No hay palabras para describir tan agradable estancia.

    Hotel Elios, the preferred choice in Saigon

    from

    Hotel Elios is a new hotel, rated 3 star. In my opinion, it is better than any comparable 3 star hotels in town.

    LOCATION

    Hotel Elios is located in the backpacker's area of Pham Ngu Lao. The location comes alive at night and very much the choice for many Westerners. There are many hotels around, restaurants, bars, pubs, and even a convenient store. It's just 15 mins walk to Ben Tanh Market (too dangerous to cross roads). 5 mins by bike. Hotel Elios is just footsteps away to the departure and waiting area to Cu Chi Tunnel tours. By 7.30am, there are many buses to pick up passengers. This makes Pham Ngu Lao the most happening tourist area in HCMC, and Hotel Elios gets the prime lot in the area.

    ROOM

    Standard, Superior or Deluxe rooms, ranges from USD$30 - $50. I had Superior and Deluxe rooms and both rooms have bathub. Rooms are huge, with clean beds. Everything is new including curtains, sofa, air-con unit, tv and mini bar. Like most hotels in HCMC, every level of Hotel Elios is equipped with Wi-FI access point. Dexlue room has a huge window overlooking the park below, while superior rooms do have a smaller window. In general, the room is exceptionally clean and gives you a nice feeling.

    ROOFTOP RESTAURANT

    The restaurant is located on the top flloor (probably 11th). It's airconditioned, and it has access to the outdoor balcony which overlooks the skyline of HCMC. From there you can see Ben Tanh, New World Hotel, etc. Beautiful skyline at night, I believe there are 4 hotels in Pham Ngu Lao have such rooftop restaurant. Breakfast is served there, very pleasant, and fried rice is my favourite. Some say better than Singapore's Newton Circus and Lau Pa Sat (for your info SydneyWombat).

    GYM

    There's a small gym, quite cool as it is located one level below the rooftop and hence, it offers view of the city.

    SWIMMING POOL

    Not available

    OVERALL

    It's a nice hotel to stay. The staff do greet you everytime when you enter the hotel. There was once, it was drizzling and the hotel boy, brought me an umbrella and escorted me to flag a taxi. For that, I thanked him and the next morning, was glad to see his friendly smile. I gave him a gift, and he was delighted.

    Brandneuer Juwel!

    from

    Ein tolles, günstiges Hotel mit super Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Als ich dort war, war es gerade mal seit ein paar Wochen geöffnet. Die Zimmer waren sauber und hatte eine gute Ausstattung. Die Duschen waren erstklassig. Als wir eincheckten, waren nur noch die einfachsten Zimmer zu haben. Unser Zimmer war klein und hatte keinen Blick nach außen. Wir ließen uns in ein Superior upgraden und hatten Blick zur Straße. Das Frühstücksbuffet war ziemlich langweilig und bot wenig Auswahl. Man kann sich aber gekochte Eier oder eine Nudelsuppe bestellen, die beide ok sind. Zum Preis von - US$24 für ein Standard und $32 für ein Superiorzimmer ein super Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis, für die üblichen Verhältnisse in Saigon.

    OK zum Discountpreis

    from

    Habe erst kürzlich in einem Superior-Doppelzimmer mit Parkblick für 50USD gewohnt (im Netz für 68USD). Die Zimmer sind sauber und schön eingerichtet, haben aber wenig Ausstattung (kein Wasserkocher oder Safe)), was andere Hotels schon zu bieten haben. Das Frühstück ist, wie bereits von anderen erwähnt, recht einfach. Das Hotel liegt aber in der Nähe des Viertels der Rucksacktouristen, dort gibt es jede Menge und bessere Gelegenheiten zum Essen. Im Frühstücksbereich kann man an drei Terminals umsonst surfen. Tagsüber wird man etwas durch Bauarbeiten gestört, die im anliegenden Gebäude stattfinden. Die habe ich sogar noch mit Ohrstöpsel zum Mittagsschlaf gehört! Alles in allem ok, wenn Sie die günstigeren Tarife erwischen, für den vollen Preis würde ich mir aber eher etwas anderes suchen.

    Clean room, comfy bed and great shower!

    from

    The Elios Hotel was a welcome relief for us after 2 months staying in various hostels/hotels in SE Asia. On average we have been spending $15-25 per night for double rooms with a/c, so Elios was a bit more expensive at $33 (the published price was $49 but the hotel was doing a deal as it is new), but it was well worth the extra $.

    The room was a good size, with a very comfy bed with duvet. There is cable TV with a wide variety of channels and the bathroom had an excellent shower and was very clean.

    We found the staff pleasant and helpful. The breakfast menu is limited - noodle soup, rice soup, eggs with toast or fruit, but to be honest we tend to have eggs most mornings for breakfast anyway!

    We would definitely recommend staying here.

    Saubere Zimmer, bequemes Bett und super Dusche!

    from

    Das Elios Hotel war eine willkommene Abwechslung nach zwei Monaten in verschiedensten Herbergen und Hotels in Südostasien. Im Durchschnitt haben wir zwischen $15-25 pro Nacht/Doppelzimmer mit Klimaanlage bezahlt, deshalb war das Elios auch ein bischen teurer bei $33 (der offizielle Preis ist $49, dass Hotel bietet aber neuerdings auch Angebote an), und das extra Geld auf jeden Fall wert. Das Zimmer hatte eine angenehme Größe, sehr komfortable Betten mit Bettzeug, Kabelfernsehen mit vielen verschiedenen Fernsehkanälen und ein sehr sauberes Bad mit super guter Dusche. Wir fanden die Angestellten freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Auswahl zum Frühstück war begrenzt - Nudelsuppe, Reissuppe, Eier mit Toast oder Früchten, aber wir essen sowieso meisten nur Eier zum Frühstück! Können es auf jeden Fall weiter empfehlen.

    OK at the discounted rates

    from

    I recently stayed in a superior twin room with park view for c50USD published rate for this was 68USD.

    Rooms are clean and nicely furnished but lack some amenities (kettle, safe in the room) that other hotels seem to supply as standard.

    Breakfast is basic as previous poster has noted but as the hotel is near the backpacker district there are plenty of nearby cafes where you can get something more appetising.

    Free internet access available from 3 terminals in the breakfast area.

    During the day, there was some construction noise from work going on at the adjacent building - which, even with ear plugs, hindered a few of my afternoon nap plans!

    Overall - OK at the discounted rates but if you are paying full whack you might be able to get better elsewhere.

    Un petit bijou flambant neuf

    from

    Un hôtel bon marché d'un excellent rapport qualité/prix.

    Il n'était ouvert que depuis quelques semaines. Les chambres étaient propres, bien équipées et avec des accessoires de bonne qualité. La douche était super.

    Il n'y avait que des chambres standard lorsque nous sommes arrivés. La nôtre était petite et sans fenêtre. Puis nous avons pris une chambre Supérieure qui était plus grande et qui avait une fenêtre donnant sur la rue.

    Le buffet du petit déjeuner était assez limité et pas de toute première fraîcheur mais ils servaient des oeufs et de la soupe chinoise à la commande et c'était très bon.

    À ce tarif, 24 USD pour une chambre standard et 32 USD pour une supérieure, cet hôtel est d'un excellent rapport qualité/prix pour Saigon.

    Brand new gem

    from

    A great value value budget hotel.

    It had only been open a few weeks. The rooms were clean, well appointed, with quality fitings. the showers were excellent.

    There were only 'basic' grade rooms available when we checked in. Our room was small, with no external view. We upgraded to superior, which was larger, with a window facing the street.

    The breakfast buffet was rather limited and tired, but they will cook eggs or noodle soup to order, both of which were good.

    For the price - US$24 for basic and $32 for superior, it is great value by Saigon standards.

    Well after so much thought (and so little planning) we arrived in Ho Chi Minh City. 24 hours after leaving a cold and damp Newcastle we landed in a hot and sticky airport in SE Asia.
    A not-terribly-efficient visa formality meant we arrived at the Elios Hotel at 10 p.m. tired but very excited. Too tired to eat, we slept with almost no sign of …

I resolve to call Dad the moment I get into a hotel in Saigon to try and work something out for the next couple days. Anyway, as we waited for our flight to Saigon, we started talking with a young London couple, Lawrence ...
