Excellent Service”

- friendly & extremely helpful staff ( i love them) - convenient online booking - great internet service - reasonable tour packages - nice food - rooms are very clean - near key tourist locations
- no Cons, they were excellent.

The hotel staff was great! The bell men at the entrance were really friendly, they had a ready smile & would assist us in anyway they can. They would check out the taxi meter before we pay the driver to make sure that were not cheated & they would help us bring your stuff without expecting any tip. We noticed this because they did not linger after helping or bringing us the adapter & weighing scale (yes we were quite a demanding group ;-) They just politely brought the things & said thank you. Special mention to Dung, the Front Desk Manager, who went out of his way to assist us book a free & easy city tour on our first day. For USD100 all 9 of us had one van bring us to the key tourist spots in the city & to anywhere else we wanted to go. Our driver did not speak much English so every time we needed someone to explain things to him, he would call Dung on his mobile & ask us to talk to him & he would then in turn translate. It was value added service to the max! Thru this we managed to tour the city in just half a day, have dinner at Jollibee, have a blast of shopping at the Ben Than night market & conveniently brought back to our hotel by 10pm. The next day we booked a guided tour with lunch for Cu Chi Tunnel & Cao Dai Temple for USD252, again with the help of Dung. The room was just the right size, very clean & well furnished. There was even a safety deposit box in the closet (free of charge) which I have never experienced in the previous countries that I've visited. The bathroom was nice & very clean. They also have 3 internet terminals at the lobby & serve you water while surfing. Overall i give them a 100% rating for a job well done. For those who are thinking of going to Ho Chi Minh on a budget, Sophia Hotel is the best place to be. Just visit their website below for more details.

NOTHING.

I have been stayed in Sophia Hotel for a few times and I enjoyed my stay in Sophia.Although is 3 stars hotel but the quality of the hotel like 4/5 stars.The most important is I felt like sleep at home. The breakfast is delicious. All the staffs are friendly and helpful. They smile all the time. Speak good English.Around here just open coffee bean. Suitable for people who want to relax and enjoy their coffee. Sophia is located at the city so just a few min walking distance then can reach the central of the city.There have a lot of shopping centre. I will highly recommend my friends and family stay in Sophia Hotel. Price is reasonable. Service in Sophia overall to me is 10 points. For the next trip to Vietnam-Ho Chi Minh I definitely will choose Sophia again..Is really worth it and enjoy so much in Sophia Hotel

Sophia - Great Hotel!”

Very clean rooms and bathroom; Good and quiet location; Very friendly and helpful receptionists who can talk and understand English; There's a computer area and free WIFI everywhere even the rooms; They have tours available and also accept US Dollar exchange; Strong water with hot and cold adjustment
Breakfast food didn't vary much daily but the taste was okay

We really enjoyed our stay at Sophia Hotel! It is not located very near the City Center but we only had to take a 2-minute cab ride. Location is good because it's more quiet and not too crowded compared to other streets in Ho Chi Minh City. We absolutely found the staff very helpful and very kind. They can speak and understand English so we didn't have a hard time. You can also book tours in the hotel without any hassle. The tour van will pick you up and drop you off in the hotel. I would recommend Sophia Hotel to all travelers in Ho Chi Minh City

a little noicy neighbours

The location of this hotel is indeed excellent. It's in close walking distance of the central shopping area. Good restaurants and pups are just around the corner (so no need to eat in the hotel). Also the club "Apocalypse Now" less then 10 minutes walk away. The return trip might take longer, though ^.~ WiFi is really helpful and working well. The money for value ration is exactly what we where looking for. My other two friends think the same and probably next time we come to Ho Chi Minh City we're going to check in the Sophia Hotel again. You really can't do anything wrong.^^ Have a nice stay, Andreas

sophia hotel is a good hotel located in district 1. walking distance from hotel to the ben tahn market and around. for those of you who had enough with the vietnamese coffee, you can find "the coffee bean" cafe just around the corner. nice hotel in thai van lung street. rooms have a small fridge with mini bar stuff. rooms are not very spacious but good enough. in the lobby you can find a few computers and free wifi exist in the hotel. the hotel also offers daily tours to the mekond delta, cu chi, and day tours in saigon (though a bit more expensive) it's best to go to the main tours area (bui vien street and around)

Location is very good. It is easy to find something to eat and close to the travelling places.The HOtel is new and clean.Nice service.
The room should be a little bit bigger. No water complimentaty in the room.

Sophia Hotel is very good hotel. I can walk to many interested places in the city center of Ho Chi Minh City. If you go to Ho Chi Minh CIty you can not miss to stay in this hotel. The price is also reasonable. THe breakfast is OK. There are many things to eat as your option. Moreover,this hotel is quite without the sound of motocycle at the night time.

Great location, good value”

Within walking distance of most points of interest in D1, friendly accomodating staff,

Stayed at the Sophia twice in one extended visit of HCMC. My first room was actually not very good. It had a funky smell and some of the lights in the room and bathroom were out. Not a huge deal since I was only staying for one night and didn't feel like making a fuss after a long flight to Vietnam. Plus, my expectations of a sub room were not high to begin with. After a short trip to Vung Tau, I returned to HCMC and the Sophia. My second room was much better, condition-wise. Although it was the same dimensions as the first ("compact" would describe it generously), there was no discernible smell and everything functioned in the room, as it should. I am sure that if I made a complaint on my first night's stay, I could have switched. But since I didn't bother voicing any issues, I don't really blame the hotel. Although free breakfast was provided with my rate, don't expect a 5-star spread. It was serviceable at best and most of the items were not refilled. So if you catch breakfast near the end of the morning, the pickings will probably be slim. Overall, however, for the price my stay at the Sophia was positive. I would probably try another hotel in the same price range next time around, but I'd still consider the Sophia if my options were limited.

staircais to reception

First time in Ho Chi Minh City. Hotel close to everything but a bit dificult to walk around as the sidewalks was in very bad condition. And when sidewalk was OK it was used for parking of motobikes. But it seems that they are concerting the sidewalks now. Breakfast was OK but not too many things but I have seen much more simples. Internet was free and worked perfect. The staircais after a long work in city was a bit hard but I think you can take elevater from the garage. Small rooms but OK for single or couple but if you travel with a friend I would recomend two rooms, and no problem as it is cheep. Will not hesitate to use the hotel again on my next visit to Ho Chi Minh City

Sophia Hotel”

The Room was very clean.What I liked was the Free Wifi in the Hotel Lobby where the resturant staff will automatically serve you with water without asking!!
As the room was stuffy, we on the air-con for the whole day, the staff will use the main switch to off it and also the water heater. You need to request for them to on it back.

The Hotel basically is clean and tidy. The hotel staff, from the recepiontist to the bell boy to the security officer were very friendly. The hotel is centrally located at Dist 1 where by walking, you can reach almost all the places you wish to visit. If really need to take a taxi to your destination, its recommneded to take 'Taxi Vinasun' whereby the starting rate is 9,500Dong. Sophia Hotel to the Airport only cost a mere 80,000Dong. Never book a taxi from the airport whom the local taxi driver will slaughter you. Once reach HCMC Airport, Go to the departure hall at 2nd or 3rd level (can't really recall) and exit out and take a local 'Taxi Vinasun' to the city. It's will cost you much cheaper. For night entertainment, You can pop by the pub beside the hotel where one can of imported beer will cost you around US2.00. As for the ladies, you can go to the city area, esp canewell hotl where all the branded goods is located. But take note is much much expensive than Singapore...kekeke...ok enjoy your HCMC trips....bye bye

Enjoyed Our Stay at the Sophia”

clean, good service, secure, good location (for us), moderately priced and a very good value
breakfast buffet (variety limited), cable TV(no news)

My wife (who is a native to HCM city) and I were very happy with our stay at the Sophia Hotel. If we were to come here again on a vacation, we would stay here again. After two weeks, however, the breakfast buffet became so predictable (boring) that my wife decided to do without by the end of our stay. Pho was available, although this is something that foriegners may not prefer for breakfast (I did have it once). I missed not being able to see CNN, BBC or France 24, but perhaps these are not generally available in Vietnam. Most of the residents in the hotel appeared to be there on business, but for someone like ourselves, who have relatives in the area, the Sophia is also a good choice. There are a number of restaurants within walking distance, but we did not go to too many. It was very easy (and inexpensive) to get around HCM by taxi also.

Best Value For Money”

Clean and comfortable room, good location, helpful and friendly staff and free internet access.
Not much variety for breakfast.

My partner and I stayed at Sophia Hotel for four nights and we were pleased and enjoyed our stay. We stayed at the double deluxe room and it was quite big for the two of us. The room was very clean and so was the bathroom and double thumbs up for that. As for location, it's good as it's situated nearby most of the tourist attractions and restaurants such as the Notre Dame and Reunification Palace. Walking distance about 15 minutes, however, you can easily take a taxi from the hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful and they made our stay a pleasant one. We were not sure about the places to eat but they were more than helpful to answer our queries and direct us the location. If you would like to stay in a three-star hotel and not splurge on the up-class, Sophia Hotel is truly recommended.

Tidy central hotel”

Location, good price/amenities, clean
Lack of natural light in some rooms

Really enjoyed my stay at Sophia hotel. Friendly and helpful staff make this a really good budget choice in District 1 (centre of Ho Chi Minh). Organised a tour (Viet Cong tunnels and war museum) with a friend through the hotel - great value and door to door service. Highly recommend

Great Location and Very Accomodating Staffs”

Most of the staffs can speak English and very accomodating, nice location, recommended for those who love to shops

The location is very strategic specially for those who love to shops and dine. Many restaurants around, no need to take taxis. Hotel staffs are very accomodating and can speak and understand English. Hotel rooms are clean though lobby is small. We have a great time staying in this very affordable but decent and clean hotel. Prefered to stay in this hotel when we visit Ho Chi Minh again. Highly recommended.

Fantastic experience at Sophia.”

Good location, new hotel, clean, nice staff, free 24 hrs internet, relatively cheap.
Small lobby and simple breakfast. Need to have a money changer at the hotel.

Relatively new hotel, less than 1 year. Room including bathroom is nice, clean with good bedding and bathing materials. Free internet is really a special benefit for our children who spent almost the whole evening there. Helpful hotel staff who was willing to give a ride to my son to a cake shop at midnight just before my birthday - so my son could give me a surprise. Location wise is good as we could find a lot of restaurant around the hotel. Other interesting places such as Cathedral, Ben Thanh Market etc are at walking distance. Price is acceptable, not expensive. Very convenience place to stay in Ho Chi Minh.

Wonderful Second Stay In Sophia Hotel”

Modern hotel,clean,located at central,quite place,friendly and helpful staffs,free wifi in the room and internet at the lobby and room.
Nothing.

This is my second stay in Sophia. All the staffs treat us like family and giving us a warmest smile while everytime we go back to hotel. Stay in Sophia Hotel is a amazing experience. Language was not a problem. Most of the staffs can speak English quite well. The signal of internet is very strong and a lot of channels can watch. At the noght time Sophia Hotel is very quite. Just a few minutes walking distance to famous Dong Khoi street. A lot of restaurant nearby. I very enjoyed and pleasure second stay in Sophia hotel. I would definitely come back again and recommend to my friends and family.
