This hotel is located well, close to the market and within walking distance to other sights. Our studio room was very nice, large and well equipped however, overlooked the street and was very, very noisy. Only single panel glass in the windows. About 20-30 minutes from the airport.
We stayed at the InterContinental Asiana Saigon Residences for 3 nights.
It is located within the same plaza building as their hotel tower that most taxi drivers from the airport would probably take you to (as ours did) ... but reception staff personally escorted us over to their residence tower which took less than 60 seconds to get to through the small plaza.
The residence tower has very generous spacious suites with stylish chic contemporary interior design.
A HIGHLY RECOMMENDED choice - compared to their relatively smaller hotel tower rooms - for longer term stays ... and even for just a night or two!
Excellent location ... centrally & conveniently located within District 1.
There are many different restaurants - including a Hard Rock Cafe - within the plaza and most tourist attractions - such as the Notre Dame Cathedral, Post Office building, Reunification Palace, Opera House, Ben Thanh Market, Vincom Center, Dong Khoi Street and the ultra futuristic iconic Bitexco Financial Tower - are within a very easy leisurely stroll of no more than 10 minutes from InterContinental's residence.
Here are some suggestions/tips:
If possible & available, try requesting for a suite facing Saigon River or a suite that is on a higher floor ... away from the German construction site (which is busy 24 hours a day) adjacent the residence tower.
Ho Chin Minh (or Saigon, as most locals still prefer to fondly know it as) is as safe as any other city anywhere else in the world.

The hotel is nice but it is not close to the city center. Everyday we had to take a taxi out of the area. It is cheaper to stay here and the accommodations are nice but if you want to be in walking distance of all of the nice sights, then this hotel is not for you. However, if you want to be away from downtown with cheaper restaurants and shopping then this area is for you. Overall, some small quirks but still a good stay for the family since we had a 2 bedroom condo.
Nothing else to say but a wonderful place to stay. I could live without the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh, but if I come back, I have no problem with saying I will stay here. Friendly staff, very nice accommodations, good location. I loved it. 5 stars.
Hotel convenient and suitable for our stay in Ho Chi Minh City.
Able to walk to various sightseeing places, able to get a quick meal or coffee close by. A mini- market in the building is hanndy for supplies to self cater.
