It’s no secret that we’re quite the city slickers over here. So while we do cherish our beach-romps over at Bali and Lombok, sometimes we crave for a refresh at one of our many neighbouring metropolitans. Ho Chi Minh City is just a 3-hour flight away from Jakarta, and you can easily catch a flight for about than $200, making it an ideal weekend getaway for those needing a quick break from the Big Durian.
Looking for a perfect escape in Saigon? Here’s your answer. Located just a five-minute cab ride away from Ho Chi Minh’s city centre, I Am Vietnam Boutique Hotel is a snazzy little stay with lovely Parisian vibes tucked away on 30/57 Nguyen Chuu Van.
Stepping inside, we were immediately impressed by the hotel’s beautiful interiors. Sleek and stylish furnishings made up the room’s décor, while a modern mix-match of pretty pastel tiles adorned the walls and floors to add just the right touch of character.
All 20 rooms in this chic boutique hotel share the same whimsically inviting aesthetic – while white is the dominant color of the rooms, we cannot emphasize more how much these playful tiles play a huge role in the hotel design’s appeal. The large and spacious rooms are wonderfully comfortable, and we felt right at home kicking back on the couch after a long day of walking through Ho Chi Minh City’s best sights.
No surprise there as Ha Nguyen, Director of I Am Vietnam, wanted to create a new home away from home for her guests from all over the world. With not many other boutique hotels in Vietnam, Nguyen took this as a challenge and an opportunity to make a difference. Nguyen and her team were successful in sharing their passion and inspiration with art, design, and food, through I Am Vietnam Boutique Hotel.
In more good news, I Am Vietnam is set to launch a rooftop bar in October, offering a fantastic selection of food and drinks, adding another reason to call I Am Vietnam Boutique Hotel as your sleek and stylish home away from home.
