The Town House 50 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

As part of our mini South East Asia tour (Bangkok-Siem Reap-Ho Chi Minh City), we crossed the border from Cambodia to Vietnam after staying in Cambodia for two days. Just like in Cambodia, my friends and I reserved two rooms for the six of us. Our hotel of choice in Vietnam is the Town House 50.

Unlike in Bangkok and Cambodia, we decided not to have a guided tour in Ho Chi Minh City. We were tired of waking up to an early call time so we could go to the tourist sites. For the first time in days we had a good night sleep in our hotel rooms. It doesn’t hurt that the hotel we stayed at is tucked away from the main road so it was quiet. Town House 50 is 20 minutes away from Independence Palace.

When you see the Town House 50 sign on the street, it kinda looks scary to go in further from the gate. As the picture above shows, you have to enter a gate and then walk a couple of yards before you enter the hotel.

The top of the hotel has this blinking Town House 50 sign so you’re assured that you’re in the right place.

Before you enter the Town House 50, you have to take off your shoes and use the slippers that they provide. You could walk barefooted too if you like.

When we entered the Town House 50, there were decorations in the lobby for Vietnamese New Year called Tết.

We got two Triple Rooms since there were six of us. I got lucky because the room that I was in was huge compared to the other Triple Room.

I love the wall art in our room.

I had my portrait taken with this beautiful backdrop. Not pictured is the restroom, which is quite huge. Our room also has a TV.

Our room is at the top-most floor. We have a balcony perfect for another portrait. Pardon the puffy eyes, this picture was taken during the last day of our week-long vacation and I was too tired from our touring and border crossing.

Breakfast is included if you decide to stay in the Town House 50.

Sausage Spread

Smoked Sausage, Shrimp Sausage, Vietnamese Sausage, Beef Sausage

Here is the selection of sausages that will go well with their egg and baguette. You could make your own Banh Mi with these sausages.

Orange, Passion Fruit, Watermelon

I tasted all four sausages but I only liked the three sausages above. I used the three sausages for my Banh Mi.

This is my version of Banh Mi. I love Banh Mi. I was quite sad that this is the only Banh Mi that I got to eat while I was in Vietnam. We only stayed in Saigon for a day so I really didn’t get the chance to scour the place for Banh Mi. I’ll be going back to Vietnam for Banh Mi.

If you’re looking for a place to stay in Saigon, I definitely recommend the Town House 50. They have rooms for every budget. Their staff are very friendly and accommodating. They will definitely make you feel like you’re just at home. The only thing that bothered me is that it smells like feet in this hotel. But I don’t think that’s a deal breaker.

    • I’m just being honest. The service is really good but it smells like feet since we are required to take off our shoes before entering the hotel… I still enjoyed my stay nonetheless.
