We believe in the social connection that binds all of us and that this social connection is necessary towards building a more peaceful world. Therefore, our accommodations are designed with a focus on common space to encourage more social connections for our guests.
Guests at Christina’s can enjoy the privacy of their own self-sufficient apartments while at the same time have access to our common space where they can meet and share stories with other travelers around the world. The idea is not to take away the comfort of private space, but rather to add more to the travel experience via the common space where sharing is encouraged.
After all, sharing is caring and we hope you’ll join us.
If home is where the hearts are, then the kitchen is the hearts of our homes.
We are convinced that few things in life are more social than food. This is especially true when we visit a new country where everything can be different from where we come from.
The common kitchen, part of our common space, is a place where our guests can partake in a cooking class or share their recipes, connecting with travelers from around the world.
Our design is simple, functional, and beautifully social.
Having traveled extensively, we know what we care most about when choosing a place to stay: a clean bathroom and a comfortable bed. At Christina’s, we make them beautiful.
Steps from what you need, away from what you don’t want.
We pick our locations to provide guests with the best local experience without sacrificing comfort.
We believe the little things matter… and we think you'll agree.
From the little bonsai personalities to our super awesome linens, we focus on the tiniest details to ensure the most pleasant stay for our guests.
My friend and I enjoyed staying here very much. There were many amenities (AC, Wifi, fridge full of drinks, cellphone, and hair dryer) and our host was willing to go above and beyond for us! The location was perfect for us as well. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks for everything!
This is a professionally run Airbnb and the service quality is exceptional. They even held my bag for me while I took a short trip and moved it to the new property. The rooms are super clean and modern. And they don't nickel and dime you. I appreciate the trust approach.
Second time with Christina's. Excellent stay as usual. Extremely hospitable host. Thoai was great.
Christina's is great because they're not just providing room rentals but actually trying to create a community around it. The people there are all very friendly and come from various places in the world, so it makes it very interesting to interact with them.
We had a great time staying at this wonderful place. It is really well located and has everything in the surrounding you need. Thug has been a perfect host. He helped out with everything and took care of his guests in the best way. The communication has always been perfectly. Thanks for this special time- if we come back to Ho-Chi-Minh we definately know were to stay :-)
We werden vriendelijk ontvangen door Trevor met een drankje en vérs fruit
Aan de hand van een kaart kregen we uitleg over de bezienswaardigheden in de buurt en de allerhande activiteiten
We kregen ook tips van goede restaurants in de omgeving
Very welcoming host. Clean and nice room. Lively neighborhood . Recommended !
From pre-booking to check-in and check-out, from the photos presented online to what we received and experienced in person, we are happy (and very relieved!) to have booked with Christina's Hoi An.
Thank you to Thuc and the entire team at Christina's Hoi An for making every effort to help us have a wonderful stay. Its really the little things that count! :)
To sleep here was the best decision for saigon we could make. We felt really sad when we left as our hosts were so nice and we would have liked to have more time to learn more about them. And we are sure that it will take a long time until we find such a comfortable bed again on holiday. We wish all the team only the best and a lot of success with christinas saigon.
Susa and Juergen
From New York to New Mexico, Paris to Kauai this was our most memorable airbnb experience. From the moment we landed we felt taken care of. After an easy taxi ride (remember to listen to directions and go directly to the official taxi stand...you'll see it) Thoai was waiting for us curbside to welcome us to our modern, well appointed studio even though we arrived after midnight. Thoai was ever present during our 5 day stay in Saigon and took care of us like family. (We met Thuc only briefly but he was always very prompt in responding via email). The studio is down a private alleyway and is very quiet and perfectly located.
All this being said, what made our trip truly were the 2 motorbike tours we took with them. We did the tunnels and Mekong tour with a day of rest in between and couldn't be more satisfied. Though Saigon traffic seems madness at first Duc and Mike were extremely professional and any of our reservations were quickly forgotten. We cannot stress enough how great the bike tours were. Even if you have just 2 or 3 days in Saigon do one of them and you will no doubt be tired but the tired that only an unforgettable day can inspire.
We also took advantage of a student led tour of the city which was excellent.
Thanks again Christina's for taking airbnb to new heights and showing us an amazing time!
Very nicely furnished, neat and modern rooms. Almost hotel standard. Staff is very friendly and helpful. They organized a city trip for us with students taking us around town on motorbikes. They were adorable and the tour was free.
We would definately stay here again on our next trip to HCMC!
Christina's place is THE place to be if you are looking for an accommodation in HCMC. pefect location, the staff is super responsive and helpful! The apartment is super modern, nicely decorated and you have everything you need! The staff will provide you with excellent recommendations upon your arrival :) It is a unique concept of a super friendly Guest house with 5 stars hotel services! I highly recommend staying at Christinas!
First AirBNB experience and if others are like this, it won't be my last. My taxi driver had a bit of difficulty locating the suite; however, with a quick phone call Minh met us out on the street and helped me in. The Suite was as advertised! Thu and the rest of the Christina's staff answered any of my questions on where to go as well as assiting with a city tour and Cui Chi Tunnel tour. Also, a special thanks to Mama for offering home cooked lunch one afternoon. Also, there was always fresh fruit in the kitchen as well as plenty of chilled water. Team Christina did an excellent job in making sure I felt at home. My next trip to HCMC, I'll definitely stay with them again!
Really enjoyed our stay at Christina's! The staff was welcoming and made us feel at home. During our stay, we were able to message the staff with any questions that we had about the area, suggestions and tour information and always received an immediate response.
The room was comfortable and they provided all that you would need (blowdryer, shampoo, soap, AC,etc). They have a shared living area downstairs which makes it cool to meet new people staying there.
The location was great! Its close enough to the backpacker/touristy spots but far enough where you can still emerse yourself in the local culture. If you are interested in street food, there are so many different alleyways with good banh mi's and soups for you to try. The Ben Thanh market and some other popular streets are about a 20 minute walk away. Motorbike taxis are easy to catch if you don't feel like walking in the heat.
Aside from the accommodations, the motorbike tour services that they provide are highly recommended. They have a Cu Chi Tunnel tour that was amazing! We were able to see a side of the country that we wouldn't have seen from any other tour providers. It was also cool being on the back of a motorbike all day! During our stay, they were planning on starting up a food tour at some point so make sure to inquire about that!
Next time we are in Saigon, we will make sure to come back or try one of Christina's other locations. We highly recommend this place for anyone who plans on coming to this amazing city.
We had such a wonderful time here, the staff were lovely and welcoming and were helpful with everything we needed. The place itself is beautiful, you can tell that great care was taken over the design, and the room was gorgeous! A good range of tasty fresh food at breakfast and I think they're starting up an evening restaurant soon too. The location was good for us, about a 10 minute cycle to the beach with the free bikes and about 20 minutes to the old town. Taxis were easy to find. Would highly recommend staying here!
The place was very modern and close to all the main tourist attractions in the city. The host was excellent and ensured we had everything we needed and helped us plan our days. Would highly recommend this spot to anyone looking to stay in central Saigon.
Das Team von Christina's hat uns sehr nett in Empfang genommen und uns zuerst viele nützliche Dinge über die Stadt erklärt.
Das Zimmer war sehr sauber und nett eingerichtet. Die Aufenthaltsräume waren ebenfalls sehr gepflegt und sehr grosszügig eingerichtet. Super zum Relaxen!
Wir würden jederzeit wieder bei Christina's wohnen!
Wow, I don't even know where to start heaping praises on these guys who run Christina's. These people are the absolute best! There are three brothers who all speak fluent English and are really dialed into HCMC. Every recommendation they gave us was spot on. They sent us to the most delicious restaurants, best massage place(not happy ending spot haha), funnest tours, etc...
They take care of you at all times. They will tell you the choicest place to go, then walk you to the taxi and tell the driver not to rip you off by driving around the long way. Nowhere else would go that far to help out a random tourist.
The rooms are perfect. Very modern with all the amenities you've become accustomed to in the West. There's a nice rooftop too with a great view. Breakfast area is great with free coffee, tea, and fruit in the morning.
The location is perfect. Right in the middle of all the city's most popular attractions. You can go almost everywhere in the city for a $1 or $2 taxi fare. Only about $12 to or from the airport.
I can't recommend this place enough. Stay at Christina's! It will greatly enhance your Saigon experience :)
Thu is really a great host! He does everything to make his guest comfortable and provides a lot of tips about what to do in Sai Gon. I would stay with him again at any time and will recommend his place!
Michael and the whole crew (Thoai especially) were great. They made me comfortable from the beginning and the place was perfect. Very clean, safe, and in an excellent location. It's also quiet and a nice escape from HCMC motorbike madness. I would stay here again and recommend Michael's place to anyone who wanted to "pretend" they are living in Saigon. The city can be a bit overwhelming, but Michael's assistance put me at ease right away. Also, the bed, hot water, and AC were on point. I was there 9 nights and loved it.
So glad we made the decision to stay at Christina's! Thu, Trevor, and the team were extremely friendly, welcoming, and accommodating. They were extremely helpful to us before and after our stay, even though we weren't the easiest guests to deal with. They made great recommendations of where we should eat and explore around HCMC, and helped book homestay of the Mekong Delta with a local guide which was easily one of our best experiences in Vietnam. We came by on our last day to pick up some things we had accidentally left behind, and they were kind enough to let us use a room to freshen up and get ready for our trip back to Toronto even though we had checked-out the previous day. Not too mention, the room was very comfortable, clean, and exactly as pictured.
I had an amazing time staying here! Everything was great- the room, the pool, the location, but the best thing about this place is the staff. They were super friendly, helpful and gave tons of recommendations. Can't wait to come back again!
Staying at Christina's was the best Airbnb experience that we have had. We stayed in a beautiful room at the "mothership" location. The staff was amazing, they all treated you like family and went overboard to make sure the stay was perfect. Their suggestions were amazing and we did not have a bad recommendation. We also did the Mekong tour with Duc that was arranged through Christina's and was a fantastic tour with lots of variety. We would definitely stay here again the next time we are here. The location was close walking distance to many great places to eat and not far from a lot of local attractions. Most were walkable or we did uber for about $2 us. Fantastic place!
If I plan to travel again to Saigon for a holiday, I would look definitely stay here again (with no hesitations). The location of the accommodation is smack bang in the heart of the city (walking distance to many tourist attractions) but with its location in an alleyway off the main street, you get the peace and quiet that you need even though its just steps away from the hustle and bustle of Ben Thanh market.
Team Christina was excellent! We were really happy with how friendly and helpful they were throughout our stay. We had also organised a motorbike tour to Cu Chi tunnels with them and the boys who took us there on the back of their motorbikes were great! They were well informed and had a great sense of humour but most of all, they made us feel relaxed and made us laugh throughout the whole trip.
Keep up the great work, Team Christina! :)
Couldn't have been better hosts. Gave us all the info we needed to get there and were at the front door when the taxi dropped us off. Also understood we were in town only for the night, asked us what we were looking to do and gave great recommendations. Stayed at a few places while in Saigon, and this one was by far the best.
Christina's ist wohl der beste Platz in ganz Ho Chi Minh! Die Unterkunft ist sehr zentral, aber trotzdem eine Ruhe-Oase. Getoppt wird das ganze von den perfekten Hosts! Sie sind einfach super - Wir haben die Unterkunft am Anfang und am Ende unserer Reise gebucht und es war ein Gefühl von "nach Hause kommen" - Danke an Duc und Co :-) Es war toll!!!
Thu, Thoai und Mike sind tolle Gastgeber. Sie waren immer ansprechbar und hilfsbereit. Die Unterkunft ist genau wie beschrieben, geschmackvoll eingerichtet und sauber und Umgebung ist perfekt um Saigon zu erkunden. Danke für den genialen Motorradausflug zu den Cu Chi Tunneln. Ich komme sicher wieder.
Apartment is new and clean. Location is near the tourist market and convenient to go around ho chi minh city. Host is very friendly and checked in time to time if we need anything.
What we see in the description and photos are the same when we arrived at the apartment.
Thank you for the great host there!
Very thankful for friendly hosts and team at Christina's! We felt very welcomed. Our host gave us a list of recommendations of what to eat, where to go and even organised voluntary tours with the local university students. Most importantly, we loved our apartment!
Perfect place to stay in HCMC, it is in center city, super clean and spacious, high service and very easly accessible having also an internal elevator.
What surprised me most is the level of details the owner put in the studio, from high quality bedsheets and towels to a perfectly organized studio.
I will definitely come back.
Good location, clean and spacious room, and centrally located. There was clear and effective communication from the host throughout the process. This hotel is new so there few a few kinks like the wifi didn't work all the time in my room, and unfortunately it was not able to be fixed before I left. Not that big of a deal because I was out most of the time. The stocked fridge was helpful. Would stay again.
My best Airbnb experience, wonderful location near the center of the city, clean and beautiful room. Host and staffs are so friendly and helpful, suggest good restaurant nearby. Highly recommend to anyone going to Ho Chi Minh city, and I definitely will stay here again if I travel to Vietnam again.
Travelled with my parents. Good assistance before arrival. Provided useful tips and navigation strategies when we arrived. Need to hand your passports in for duration of stay. Room was very clean and tidy. No issues at all with any of the facilities. Duvan was comfy. Quiet nights' sleep even over Xmas period! We were also given the freedom to explore HCMC on our own or take the tours via the host's packages. Very smooth check-out! Overall it was a great stay and very enjoyable!
Nice place, nice service, quite central and staff really helpful: I would definitively recommend to anyone.
Honestly the best Airbnb I've stay at! Not only are the room comfy and clean but the staff and vibe of the place is what makes it so special. They were all so helpful and extremely friendly! We loved it so much we extended our stay and will be booking with them at their new location is Hoi An!
Unit is better than the pictures! Really spacious space. Great location to boot!
Our stay at Christina's was very relaxing and enjoyable. Minh greeted us and was very helpful. Thu was prompt with his responses and the apartment was exactly as the pictures online. The staff at Christina's were attentive to all our needs and went above and beyond expected. Totally recommend this place to first time visitors to Ho Chi Minh City and the apartment was close walking distance to the local and tourist shopping areas. Thanks everyone at Christina's, hope to see you soon. Cheers
When you think of a home away from home, this was exactly what the apartment delivered on - it's exactly like the photos, and was absolutely gorgeous and everything was new and well kept. The apartment is off the main road so it isn't noisy but close enough so that you can walk out to grab a bite or explore a little. It's also fairly close to Ben Thanh market - only about 5 minutes by motorbike, and also very close (walking distance) to the bus station and the main area where all the tour agencies and shops are so it's easy to get around and explore other parts of HCM or the surrounding areas.
The apartment itself has great amenities, and there's also a main area where you can meet other guests and also use the shared facilities - like the kitchen and laundry. Everything was super nice, bright and airy and it was really enjoyable staying in the apartment.
Thoai was a fantastic host - he was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. It made our stay in Vietnam a lot richer and far more interesting. If you need help or have any questions, he was around the apartment to help out or answered emails really quick.
If you're looking for a great apartment in HCM, then this is definitely the one for you :) Plus, Gerlinde was a great host when Thoai wasn't around!
Thu and everyone at Christina's were thoughtful. I had assistance with arrangements for trip, had laundry service available, loan of a adapter to charge my devices and great advise on dining and booking flights. The rooms (I came back after originally booking 2 nights) were both immaculately clean, aesthetically pleasing and comfortable. I will definitely stay here again and can't wait to come back.
