Rare downtown budget find
A tall, narrow building located in Saigon's central business area, Hampton Hotel is one of the few downtown hotels that accommodates travellers on a budget.
Surrounded by many great restaurants and fine shopping, the location is what makes the hotel special. The exterior and decor here are plain; Hampton Hotel is more of a functional affair. Rooms are well equipped with WiFi, mini-bar and cable TV. The slightly more expensive superior rooms are actually quite good, with the highest floor getting a view of the Saigon River. While the beds are on the firmer side, the internet connection is spotty, especially on odd numbered floors (the staff told us) and the cheapest rooms are windowless, Hampton Hotel does have an exceptionally friendly staff and the location can't be beat for the price.
