If Ho Chi Minh City were a Monopoly board, a property on Dong Khoi St would be the equivalent to coveted Park Place and Hotel Catina is a hotel in the French colonial heart of Saigon for under US$100.

Dong Khoi was known as Rue Catinat in yesteryears. Step out of Saigon Catina and the Opera House is to your left, Hotel Majestic is down to your right and Nguyen Hue Blvd is behind you, not to mention all the western cafes, restaurants and cocktail bars in all directions.

Functional rooms with a great location.

The hotel is a compromise. It’s a great location but the hotel lacks the charms associated with boutique hotels—it even lacks a traditional lobby and bellman. The access is via a jewellery store and the reception is just one person at a small desk—so don’t expect red carpet service.

Dimly lit hallways lead to tidy, well appointed rooms with a city hotel feel like beige carpet, white walls and wooden furniture. Rooms have amenities such as in-room safe, mini bar, kettle, desk, TV, WiFi, bedside reading lamp and modern bathrooms. They have bathtub/shower combos though some do not have a curtain which means water everywhere when taking a shower. Superior and Deluxe rooms do not have windows while the more expensive rooms have a view of the famed street and sleeker bathrooms.

At this price point a tub!

Without the location it would be overpriced for what it is. This hotel is for someone who values a convenient situation in Saigon’s commercial centre above all and doesn’t need typical hospitality services. Rate includes breakfast.
