One highlight of this year was joining the San Francisco-Ho Chi Minh
City Sister City Committee on the Economic and Goodwill Mission to Vietnam. We received some unique insights into the past and future of US/Vietnam relations, particularly as they are related to business, culture and the history of Vietnam.During our brief visit to Ho Chi …
C'est mon troisième jour à Ho Chi Minh Ville, et, ça y est:
- j'ai traversé des artères immenses, sans me faire renverser. La meilleure méthode, c'est celle de la grand-mère de Mulan : on prend un petit porte-bonheur, on se couvre les yeux, et on marche tout droit, toujours au même rythme, en évitant à tout prix de s'arrêter.
- je suis multimillionnaire. Je jongle avec des sommes folles, qui équivalent à quelques euros, et j'ai probablement déjà fait un ou deux heureux ...
... of the mayhem that is Saigon traffic. The scary part came when my driver did not know where our hotel was and Ollie had all the money so we just kept driving around asking every other person on the pavement where is this hotel? , until eventually my guy phones Ollie's guy to ask where he is and we eventually make it to the hotel hot and dusty. The hotel was lovely and we even had our own PC in the room and a complimentary fresh fruit bowl. We only have 30 days in Vietnam ...
... up to the top floor passing the cinema projection room on the way before we entered a large bar that overlooked 3 of the 4 sides of the complex. The 4th side we saw the lower roof that had a helipad complete with the President’s own helicopter! How the other side live! We left the Palace and went to get some lunch down the road at a place that served street food in a sit down environment. The food we had was really good although we did order a South ...
We get up really early on this fine HOT day in HMC,and decide to make our way to the museum early and try to beat the heat a little,no such luck.Its really humid,so we load up with all the tools,water,sunglasses,water,sunscreen and of course water,and off we go.The traffic is in fine form already,and it really clears your head and forces you to be in the moment immediately,or get run over,so it's very motivating to say the least.We have an ...

Best value in central location. Only 1-2 blocks away from all the main attractions in town.
Friendly staff, good Wifi access - A/C works well but hallways are humid
Book extra nights online at Orbitz- cheaper than booking directly with the hotel.

Historical Traveler Reviews Kimdo Royal City Hotel Ho Chi Minh City
Kimdo is ok
Agree with most previous reviews stayed there four days all together on the 4th and 6th floors. The standard rooms are not the best we grumbled and they upgraded us to the 6th floor suites. Very good location for getting around. Breakfast buffet is good. Internet in Business centre is very slow, went 2 doors down to shopping centre where internet place is much better.
Il Kimdo non è male
Sono d'accordo con la maggior parte delle altre recensioni. In totale ho passato quattro giorni in quest'albergo; sono stato al quarto e al sesto piano. Le camere standard non sono ideali, così abbiamo reclamato e ci hanno fatto passare di categoria dandoci una suite al sesto piano. L'ubicazione è perfetta per andare in giro e la colazione a buffet ottima. La connessione a internet nel Business Centre è veramente lenta, ma nel centro commerciale lì accanto è molto migliore.
Mio marito, i miei due figli adolescenti e io abbiamo passato quattro giorni in due camere superior durante le feste natalizie. Questo è un posto fantastico dove festeggiare il Natale. La colazione a buffet è fantastica. Le camere sono pulite e di buone dimensioni. Siamo arrivati ai mercati Bin Tay a piedi in circa 15 minuti. C'è una piscina interna / vasca idromassaggio molto piccola. La camera viene riordinata dalla cameriera.
me + my hubby + 2 teenagers stayed in 2 superior rooms here for 4 days over the xmas. great location to celebrate xmas. buffet breakfast was to die for. Clean + fair sized rooms. Walked to the bin tay markets. about 15 mins. Very small rectangular indoor pool/jacuzzi. Serviced by the maid.
They try -- and that is what counts at this hotel. The staff is excellent -- everyone at the desk comes to help you if you have a question and the breakfast manager and staff truly make the morning enjoyable. Our room was beautiful -- high ceilings and clean.
Stayed in the Kimdo hotel for four nights in the last week. It has apparently just been awarded 4 stars. The reception area is good with doormen opening the doors. Most staff are very eager to please. Reception staff need a little bit more training in customer relations and are thrown by simple requests. Ensure you have any requests made and confirmed in writing especially when handing over cash.
Family favorite on multiple occassions
I stayed here on several occasions throughout the years, including for a month-long stay as I was doing research in Vietnam and once a few years later for two weeks while vacationing. The staff is friendly and really on top of things. Rooms are spacious and comfortable and very clean. I am a Vietnamese-American and I can tell you that the food that you get at the free buffet every morning made me feel right at home! I've never had a problem there. Great value without the stuffy atmosphere of the Ritz.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Kimdo for six nights in September 2006 in a standard room.
Beautiful hotel, great location
Just spent three nights here.4th floor,nice room,quiet,clean.If you send out laundry,only pay at front desk,I paid fella who delivered,but money never made it to front desk.Staff fixed problem immediately.Hotel has great location(close to Ben Thanh market and many shops) and dinning room has nice view of city
We stayed at the Kimdo for 5 nights during July. The room we had was enormous and quite comfortable. The furniture in the room was quite dark and dominating, but the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. Being on the 12th floor, the pressure from the shower was not too good - we did find we had to run around in it to get wet!!
