Affordable Muslim Friendly Hotels In Ho Chi Minh (Based on Crescent Ratings)

Without having the proper knowledge of the Muslim religion, many hotels in Ho Chi Minh city have claimed to be Muslim friendly. The fact of the matter is, not all of them actually observe Muslim practices. And many a time, this may result in very awkward and uncomfortable situations for Muslims traveling to Vietnam. Just as we did with our research on Halal certified restaurants in Ho Chi Minh, Colours of Vietnam reached out directly to these hotels, to determine if they do indeed comply with these observances.

The guidelines we have used are:

  1. Halal food served to guests
  2. Qibla direction observed in hotel room
  3. Prayer mats provided to guests
  4. Ramadan related services provided to guests, e.g. provision of dates during the fasting season
  5. Muslim friendly environment, e.g. no serving of alcohol
  6. Prayer room provided to guests
  7. Muslim friendly surrounding, e.g. no bars in the area
  8. Close to shops selling Muslim products, e.g. clothes and accessories
  9. Close to mosque
  10. Close to Halal restaurants

(Items 1-7 are taken from Crescent ratings, and items 8-10 are based on our own understanding of Muslim travellers.)

Based on the guidelines given by Crescent ratings, coupled with our own knowledge of Muslim practices, we present to you 6 of our most Muslim friendly hotels in Ho Chi Minh city, in order of the number of points awarded.  These hotels boast a Muslim friendly surrounding, where mosques, Halal restaurants, and shops selling Muslim items can be easily found.
