3. The Alcove:
Probably the most beautiful indie hotel in Saigon, filled with French colonial designs. Filled with floral patterns, and a bookcase stacked with thousands of book for your reading pleasure while waiting at the lobby. The place literally feels like home, the beds are super comfy but if you stay longer on the beds in the morning, you may miss your breakfast for it ends at 9:30 AM. But if you can, travel upstairs to Roadhouse Bar and Restaurant for yummy dishes: eggs, toasts, jams, fruits, fresh coffee and tea.
Address: 133A Nguyen Dinh Chinh Street, Ward 8, Phu Nhuan Dist, HCMC.
Phone: +848 6256 9966
