Most of the guest friendly hotels on my guest friendly hotels Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) list are located in District 1 close to the nightlife and bar girls. Vietnam is a communist country and most of the hotels have a very strict visitor policy. Almost all (high-end) hotels won’t allow you to bring local bar girl back to your hotel room at night. During the day their policy is not so strict.
Guest friendly hotels Ho Chi Minh 2018 update:
All hotels mentioned on my 2017 update below are still guest friendly. I checked some beer/hostess bars, all were overpriced scam. Most famous Bj bars are still in business (see below). Not bad happy ending massages at Vien Dong hotel and Dai Nam hotel. Vien Dong was cheaper 270k for the room and 400k tip. Dai Nam rates: 700k vip room (cheaper available too) and 800k tip.
Guest friendly hotels Ho Chi Minh 2017 update:
I came back from my last trip to Ho Chi Minh in 2017. I stayed/checked the following hotels in Ho Chi Minh: Ho Sen hotel, Luan Vu, Minh Vy, Huong Trinh, Thien Xuan hotel. All these hotels are guest friendly in 2017. Although my friend had small issues bringing a girl back to his room at Luan Vu hotel (see info from 2016 below) I stayed there again in 2017 and never had problems. Even more, this hotel will be my first choice for my next trip. Within the next days I’ll add full reviews and high resolution photos.
Some information from my previous trip in November 2016. I stayed at Luan Vu hotel in the middle of the Bui Vien party area. I found a girl in Tinder. She asked for $100 LT, agreed for 1 500 000 vnd ($65). I paid her the money as she was very good looking. I got a call from the reception and she came direct to my room. Later, a friend of mine came back with a freelancer to the same hotel, free of charge but this time not hassle-free. I asked my Tinder girl if she knows guest friendly hotels in Ho Chi Minh. The girl explained to me that she never had problems to stay with customers in any 1-5 star hotels in Ho Chi Minh. If the girl doesn’t wear too sexy clothes and a lot of make-up, the staff will never stop her.
Where to find bar girls and freelancers in Ho Chi Minh?
I think the dating apps like tinder, badoo, wechat…are still the best choice in 2017. There are many freelancers or girls looking for fun. Some girls try to ask for $100-200 but you can lower the price a lot or even find a girl for free.
Pham Ngu Lao – Bui Vien street area. It’s a party area with many bars and restaurants. The area has some new hostess bars but I don’t think they are a good option. Lady drinks cost 90 vnd but most girls don’t go with customers. There are a lot of massage parlors in the area. If you are lucky, you can have a great GFE.
Go2 bar on Bui Vien street late at night is a very good place to find freelancers. Girl prices 2017: $30-$50 LT (long time) is a normal price. Some girls try to ask for $100-$200!
Hai Ba Trung street area. The area had a lot of hostess (beer) bars and bar girls but It’s almost dead in 2017. Not worth a visit.
Apocalypse Now disco is still good place to find freelancers (2017) but negotiate the price in advance.
BJ bars in Ho Chi Minh – I visited Benny’s, the most famous BJ bar in Ho Chi Minh, in November 2016. You pick a girl a pay her 400 000 vnd ($20), the tip is optional. The address is 110 Dien Bien Phu, Binh Thanh District. Close to Benny’s is My Tien, located at 90 Dien Bien Phu. Another good BJ bar is at 84 Nguyen Phi Khanh. The taxi drivers know the location, it’s not far from the city center.
KTV prices $50-100 LT.

Top guest friendly hotels Ho Chi Minh (Saigon)
Ho Sen Hotel $28+
Probably the most famous guest friendly hotel in Ho Chi Minh, right in District 1. I stayed there in 2017. Good value for money. Close to the famous Apocalypse bar where you can find many girls late at night. Lots of international and local restaurants nearby. Clean, comfortable rooms with wi-fi, safe and a good supply of toiletries. Standart rooms have no windows. Deluxe rooms are huge and much better. The hotel staff is friendly, helpful and speak good English.
Luan Vu Hotel $16+
I stayed there in 2017. The hotel deserves more stars. Good sized and quiet rooms. Clean bathrooms and excellent wi-fi. Superior rooms are excellent value for money. Full review and more photos coming soon.
Minh Vy Hotel $24+
Minh Vy hotel is a real gem, much better than before. I stayed there in 2017. Recently renovated rooms, excellent wi-fi and the reception guy can find girls and bring them direct to your room. Nice budget option on guest friendly hotels Ho Chi Minh list. Close to Ho Chi Minh nightlife and entertainment. Walking distance to beer bars, restaurants and sights. Good rooms with free wi-fi, safe, aircon, lcd tv, desk, coffee/tea maker. Standart rooms are too small and don’t have windows. Deluxe rooms are much better. The vip room is the best option. The pics in Agoda show exactly the real hotel condition but I’ll upload more of my photos soon.
Thien Xuan Hotel $33+
Thien Xuan hotel has very good central location. I checked it again. It’s still guest friendly in 2017 but I don’t have new photos. Walking distance to bars, restaurants, nightlife. Close to the main market and sights. Good clean rooms with free wi-fi, excellent shower and aircon. Nice breakfast at 10th floor with rooftop view. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Huong Trinh Hotel $17+
As of 2017, they have also short time rates. Good cheap option, close to the action in District 1. Photos coming soon.
