Pick of the bunch
Tay Ho has the top floor of four shopfronts running along the waterfront.
Though it has spic and span rooms with great views (if you get a front one), the pricing is back-to-basics. You'll get no fancy decor, but a spotless bathroom and a well-sized room with a simple bed, air-con, mini-fridge and TV. The big hit here is the long terrace with tables and chairs overlooking Hai Ba Trung Street and the river. While there isn't a restaurant on-site, you can order a drink or some food from the restaurant next door and have it delivered to the terrace for some atmospheric al fresco dining. The farthest front room to the left has a commanding view of the statue of Ho Chi Minh City. Just be aware that it might not be vacant as it's the room the GM stays in when he's in town. The river rooms are pricier, but if occupancy is low they'll drop the rates in the blink of an eye. Recommended.
