CCentral Hotel Ben Tham and Bui Vien

Ho Chi Minh is relatively cheap – which is perfect for budget travelers who wants to explore a high-spirited country. It was my first time to visit the country, I got to taste different Vietnamese dishes and explore the city even with a tight budget. For those who are planning to visit Ho Chi Minh, I would suggest you stay at Ccentral Hotel De Tham or Ccentral Bui Vien, read my blog review to know why.

Ccentral Hotel

Ccentral Hotel has 2 different hotel in District 1, Ccentral Hotel De Tham and Ccentral Hotel Bui Vien. It is a minute or 2 walk away from each other. The location of both hotel is perfect for travelers because it is located in backpackers area of Ho Chi Minh and it is in the middle of the city.

I would suggest the you stay in this area because the price of the transportation, whether taxi, Grab or Uber, will make it worth staying in District 1. Plus, the drivers are familiar with every streets and hotels in the area. Also, legit taxi drivers are hard to go outside district 1.

In Bui Vien street, which is adjacent to De Tham street, a long stretch of it is all restaurants and bars. You can have wide range of choices from the cuisine to the price range when deciding what food to eat.

We stayed for two nights in Ccentral Hotel De Tham. Right off the bat, we noticed the space of the room was really big. It has a industrial design but still keeping it homey and cozy.
