I booked 2 nights at Ibis Saigon South for 2 nights for 21 & 22 Dec 2017. My Vietnamese girlfriend was turned away, despite registering and our good track record of over 30 days at all other 5 Saigon Accor hotels between 2015-2017, alongside more stays together at other countries' Accor hotels. The customer service attitude and tone was not too polite, especially towards my girlfriend. I was told the hotel manager may consider our case appeal, but we never saw or heard from the person except through a post-stay email survey. The issue was resolved immediately when I wanted to book another room through Accor member app. I was asked by reception staff to book the extra room for 2 nights through them which was cheaper, though it turned out not-to-be, and the booking's points/nights were not credited into my member account either. We returned the welcome-drink coupon meant for 1. We did not feel welcomed at Ibis Saigon South. Rooms were clean and fairly well maintained likely other Ibis hotels. We left to stay at Accor Sofitel Saigon Plaza, and treatment we received there was so contrasting better.

I am staying here. Today is my first day. They dont even provide drinking water if I call them It should not be called a hotel. Room size is very small. no gym/swimming pool. Just a room and no room service. I dont know how I will manae rest of 6 days. I will have a word with my office booking office and se if alternate arrangements can be made. No more future business visits stay in this hotel.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights on a business trip. Primarily chose this place because of its proximity to office. The room and the bathroom looks old and worn out. The walls are perhaps very think and noise from neighboring rooms propagate a lot making it very disturbing especially at night. The location is far off from the City Centre and hence not ideal for people who are on holiday. Not much places around the hotel to shop too..Breakfast options very limited and repetitive. For a city like HCM, it shouldn’t be difficult to find a better hotel.

Very poor service, rooms were very small and not very good amenities if any at all in the room. Location is very good next to secc and mall the only plus point to the hotel. Breakfast is mediocre at the best.

We stayed here during our 3 day visit to Vietnam. The room was clean and the internet was strong. Breakfast was not cheap, but plentiful, tasty and varied. I would definitely return here during another visit.

Very disappointing Hotel. Junior Staffs Management from the last Century Very low quality, even compared with IBIS Airport which is much better in term of services and Management. We came here because all Accor Hotels were busy at that time in the downtown.. Really Zero Never come back. To absolutely avoid.

We did not enjoy our stay here. We asked for a non smoking room, but the entire floor still stunk as did our room. Actually the entire place stinks of cigarettes. We checked in late after a long flight, as soon as we stepped out of the lift we were hit with the smell. When we opened the door to our tiny room, it was in there as well. The room is so small - the smallest I've ever seen. The bathroom was dirty - mould all through the grout. The soap is in a large gross tube. I get they might be saving money/plastic, but its like having a communal shower gel - not my thing. Only one towel was provided, but there were two of us. We literally looked at each other and said 'I'm not staying here', and booked another hotel. We were that keen to get out of there, we just packed a small bag and walked right out of there and to the other hotel. The only reason you would stay here is because the SECC is right across the road, and all of the other hotels in the same proximity are booked out. Its not even value for money - the other places are the same rate, if not cheaper, and are 100x better. When we came back the next day, we complained and were moved. The new room didn't stink, but it was still small and dingy and the bathroom was still dirty. We were there a week. We would have moved hotels for the whole week, but everything else was literally booked out. The wifi is crap and the desk is tiny, Considering business people are their main demographic that is something that needs to be looked at. The fridge is also tiny - like half the size of a normal bar fridge - you can't even fit a bottle of water in there. Its a good hour from the airport. Taxi drivers hang around out the front pestering you as soon as you walk out the door. There is a mall at the end of the street, but other than that there is nothing to do here.

Stayed at the Ibis Saigon South for 3 nights in Sept 2017. It's located in District 7 which is a bit out of the way unless you have something at the nearby convention centre to attend. Staff were friendly, room was clean, hotel quiet, breakfast was adequate. The filter coffee machine broke down one morning and there was no backup so no coffee available which was a bit disappointing. There is a convenience store 50m away which Is handy. Next time I'll stay somewhere more central in District 1.

Had a comfortable stay at this hotel which is just across the road from SECC. Very friendly staff and a good breakfast. Variety in the menu throughout the week! Compact rooms, yet with all facilities, you may need in a hotel room. Thank you ibis!

IBIS Saigon South is located in District 7, which is a little away from the center of the city but right opposite the convention center that is the venue for many business events and trade shows. If you are visiting Ho Chi Minh for a business event/trade show then IBIS Saigon should be your choice. Located bang opposite the SECC Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center, IBIS Saigon not only offers a walking access (literally a hop away) to the convention center but also is the most convenient hotel to stay. If you are lucky enough to make a booking well in advance, you could get steal deals at the hotel on any of the travel portals like or The hotel is about 30minutes drive from the Ho Chi Minh airport and a taxi would cost you around 320,000 VND. The rooms are compact (as any IBIS Hotels across) but very comfortable. The beds are so freaking comfortable, you would not surely have a good night sleep after a tired day. The staff is so very cooperative and accommodating for your requests even at odd hours of the day/night. Understanding English is a major problem in Asian countries, thankfully many staff members at IBIS speak and understand English otherwise they all use Google Translators to understand your language. The hotel offers free wifi that with a super bandwidth. The frequency was so good that I could access the wifi standing at the back entrance of the convention center. The hotel offers spelndid buffet options for non-vegetarians at an affordable cost however, the vegetarians would just need to restrict themselves to bread toast/corn flakes and fruits. The reception staff June and his team were appreciably understanding and accommodating. They would also guide customers to the best taxi service available in the city or any query that you may have about site seeing in the city. The staff would also make sure that they help you take a taxi to your destination and would advise you on safety norms to keep in mind while taking a taxi. There is a Mall, a family mart, a cinema hall and a range of restaurants including Indian restaurants at a walking distance from the hotel. I have had a wonderful stay at the hotel and I would recommend this hotel to any business traveler.
