Alagon D’antique is a boutique hotel that melds the ultra-modern with a rosy take on French colonial Indochina.

The lobby makes an impression, sporting a sumptuous, bold mix of old world materials: ebony wood bar, leather sofas, brass fixtures, patterned floor tiles and exposed brick walls adorned with old world posters and photos. Reception staff wear sensational brocade ao dais. The restaurant has shades of Parisian Belle Epoque and the complimentary afternoon tea is served here to live piano music. Hallways are scented with lemongrass. It’s a sensorial experience before even reaching the rooms.

Easy to find.

By contrast, the rooms are elegant in their simplicity. Stark white walls and strong lighting keep the small space feeling bright and light while decorative touches like patterned tiles, framed art, heavy drapes and ebony furniture add visual interest. Like most small hotels in Ho Chi Minh City, the cheapest rooms don’t have windows. This is one of the few hotels we inspected that we felt the windows wouldn’t be missed. The in built minibar, classy wall moulding and wall mounted flatscreen TV keep the space feeling uncluttered. The bathroom has everything a traveller needs including toiletries and a shower with both a regular and rain shower head.

Higher priced categories have more space, bigger bathrooms with bathtubs and windows, though some are frosted or look out to a wall—if this is important to you, do check before booking. All rooms have WiFi, air-con, flatscreen TV, minibar, kettle and safety box. The rate includes a buffet breakfast. Stay for more three nights and there’s free airport drop-off.

The hotel has a rooftop lap pool and loungers which enjoy decent views over the surrounding area. We happened upon the staff scrubbing the loungers clean with small brushes. Impressive.

To top it off it Alagon D’antique has an ideal location. It is 350m north of Pham Ngu Lao St and is walking distance to Ben Thanh market and Reunification Palace. Other tourist sites are a short taxi ride away. The only major negative is that there is just one lift for the 60 rooms. Expect a long wait for it.

We noticed significant discounts off the rack rate through online booking sites. Shop around online for a good deal.
