We stayed at Villa Song in an Art Suite for 7 nights in October. It could not have been a better ending to a 22 night vacation. As mentioned numerous times, the location is peaceful, yet with the complimentary boat shuttle, district 1 is a mere 12-15 minute ride away (also a free sightseeing trip). It is newly renovated and has only 23 very tastefully decorated rooms/suites. if you want the chaos and pollution of HCMC at your front door, I wouldn’t suggest here. If its elegance, beauty, and genuine heartfelt service, this is the place. Breakfast is anytime and the choices are many. You will not go away hungry. As for dinner choices, the menu is quite large. We seldom eat at our hotel, generally due to quality and overcharging, but ate dinner here 6 nights. We tried every section of the menu. (Asian, western, seafood, salad, noodles, soup...etc.) It was all amazing, and for an extremely very reasonable price. Please do not overlook dining here. We had the opportunity to meet the chef, he is somewhat new to this hotel but has a good deal of experience. He is a young Vietnamese gentleman who is very proud and devoted to his food. All and all, this place is a real gem. The staff are amazing and take great pride in everything that they do. Serene location, Saigon River view, cheap and easy access to district 1, awesome food, and a staff that any hotel would envy...can’t beat it!
