    Serviced Apartments in Ho Chi Minh City

    Are you looking for a short-term solution in District 1 or a six month stay in Thao Dien?

    In Ho Chi Minh City, serviced apartment companies offer a wide range of solutions, and you should then be able to find accommodation that suits your needs.

    In this article, we list 7 serviced apartment companies and compare them according to their rent span – both short-term and long-term, minimum duration of stay, location, amenities, and other key factors.

    Overview

    Benefits of renting a serviced apartment in Ho Chi Minh City

    Even though most hotel’s receptionists and waiters can speak good English in Ho Chi Minh City, When it comes to local landlords and agents the situation might be quite different.

    Therefore, the first advantage of choosing a serviced apartment is that you will be able to deal with agents and managers that have a good command of the English language.

    This is not only important while you are selecting your apartments, but also later on, for instance in case of problems.

    Besides, a serviced apartments reputable company shall provide two copies of the rental contract – one in English and one in Vietnamese language, – and, generally speaking, will not try to keep your deposit without a valid reason, once it’s time to leave the apartments.

    Another important point is that in Vietnam all foreigners shall register their address to the local police office.

    Now, when you stay in a hotel there is no problem, as hotels register you to the local police by default. When dealing with a serviced apartment company, you will normally be in the same situation, as they deal with a large number of foreigner clients, and thus must comply with local regulations.

    Conversely, local landlords might not even be aware of such an obligation, which might become a problem for you, especially if you plan to stay in the country for more than a couple of weeks.

    Serviced apartment rents in Ho Chi Minh City

    If you are looking for an apartment in District 1 or its surroundings – District 3, Bin Than or Bin Thao Dien, – rent prices will start from around VND 10,000,000 per month for a studio, and around VND 24,000,000 for a 3 bedroom apartment.

    Although these prices are in line with the rent of “normal” apartments, in our experience you can get a serviced apartment for such a price only if you commit for at least 6 months.

    The reason is that most serviced apartments providers in Ho Chi Minh are flexible, and will grant you a more affordable deal if you decide to commit for several months.

    If you just want to rent the place for a couple of days (or weeks) you will still be able to do so, as long as you are willing to pay a premium price.
