Around the corner from Ben Thanh market and 500m from Independence Palace, Sanouva Hotel has a convenient location for ticking off the District 1 tourist sights and some great cafes/restaurants.

The hotel is also just a kilometre from Bui Vien, should you want to indulge in some tourist nightlife. Aside from the positive location, Sanouva has 53 rooms that are no thrills but comfortable, modern and good for a few nights as it provides all that a traveller needs really.

Rooms have purpose-built furniture so they’ve managed to organise and maximise the small space to include bedside tables, switches and plugs, a desk, flatscreen TV, minibar and mirror. Bathrooms have a reasonably sized glass shower stall, sink with countertop and even a hairdryer.

Sanouva is double the width of the average skinny hotel and doesn’t have a tall building flush up against it (for now). What this means is that unlike most other local hotels in Saigon where the entry level room category is without windows, Sanouva’s Deluxe room has two windows, a blessing if natural light is a must. Of course, higher room categories enjoy bigger windows and more room square footage.

One downside is that there is only one lift for 53 rooms. The rooms were inspected had some wear and tear, though when we were there, the hotel was renovating an entire floor so it seems they do invest in freshening up. Also, there was a whole army of staff at the reception and the service seems welcoming, professional and tidy.
