8 Affordable Muslim Friendly Hotels In Ho Chi Minh Near Ben Thanh Market

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. 

As expected, some of the hotels listed on popular Halal travel websites (as being Muslim friendly) have responded saying that they do not provide any amenities tailored to Muslim guests. If you would like to know which hotels are on the list, do reach out to us privately, as we do not wish to call them out them publicly on our website.

The guidelines we have used are:

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

Disclaimer: At the time of publishing, we have yet to confirm that the equipment used in the preparation of food is Halal.

Based on the guidelines given by Crescent ratings, coupled with our own knowledge of Muslim practices, we present to you 8 of our preferred Muslim friendly hotels in Ho Chi Minh city, in order of the number of points awarded.  Though not all are Halal, these hotels boast a Muslim friendly and safe surrounding in District 1, where mosques, Halal restaurants, and shops selling Muslim products and accesories can be easily found. Furthermore, they are located right in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City and is within range of popular attractions, such as Ben Thanh market, war remnants museum, Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica, and the Saigon Opera House.

Colours of Vietnam is in no way affiliated to any of the hotels stated above. Based on Crescent ratings and research done on Muslim observances, these hotels are strongly recommended for Muslim tourists visiting Ho Chi Minh City.
