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.
Christina's was very welcoming and made our stay in HCMC fun! It was great getting to know the staff and the accommodations were very, very comfortable. We highly recommend asking them about their private tours. My partner and I went to the Mekong Delta and had an absolute blast. Our guide really made the experience special, as he shared tons of knowledge with us at each stop along the trip.
We had a wonderful time at Christinas and so glad that we went with this option instead of a hotel. Very conveniently located, quiet (as its in an alleyway) and exactly as it looks in the pictures! It was very well maintained and exceptionally cleaned. I loved the "honesty fridge" system and that all proceeds go to the cleaner. One of the highlights was the welcome we got from the staff when we arrived and every morning. They spoke us through where all the main sites are and helped us with small things- booking our airport taxi, finding us a place for passport photos. Sad we didn't find Christinas sooner when we were in Hanoi!
Our stay at Christinas was perfect. Both rooms we had were like designer hotel rooms and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The location is also great. We're coming back to HCMC at the end of our trip and are looking forward to staying there again. I have no hesitation in recommending this as a great place to stay in HCMC.
Staying at Christina's was an excellent choice. The room was spacious and well appointed and made for a relaxing space away from the noise of the city. The common area was friendly and inviting, but I was too short on time to full enjoy the atmosphere.
The staff was also fantastic, accommodating a very early morning check-in and check-out, arranging tours, and generally making me feel at home. I only wish I had spent more time there before continuing to other parts of Vietnam. This presented the best of both worlds between a large hotel and a homestay - a comfortable private space, welcoming staff, great location, and a chance to meet other like minded travelers. I'd recommend anyone to stay there.
Great places, very cool people, great stay.
He does everything to make you feel home and help you at the minimum incovinience you have in the room or in the city.
He's doing a great job!
Keep it up
Its always a pleasure to stay here with Christina's. Everything is clean and I realised they used one of the best towels for their guests.
There seems to be more great eating places around this location compared to half a year ago.
Would definitely come back again.
Cristina was our first AirBnB ever and they didn't disappoint.
Thuc was warm and very welcoming. He was extremely helpful about places, directions and other things about Saigon.
The Cu chi tunnels bike trip was good fun though we did feel that there could have been a deeper immersion of Vietnamese culture enroute.
This apartment was exactly what you see in the photos and the location is ideal. Also, Team Christina's is so great! They are friendly, helpful and understanding when it comes to travel mishaps. I would love to stay here again because I felt so welcome! Thanks Team Christina's!
So good! The apartment is in a great location, walking distance to most areas you'd want to visit on your trip. The staff were very helpful and accommodating :)
Eveything was perfect. Our flight was delayed, but no problemes at all Thao (I'm pretty sure that's the wrong spelling, sorry!!) waited for us and explained everything even in the middle of the night. The room is exactly as in the pics and the bathroom is very nice! We got everything we needed including useful tipps concerning restaurants and place to see. The christinas team made me and my friend feel welcome and we had a great time.
It's very central and you can walk to the most touristic places. All in all highly recommended!
A wonderful loft in a great location, Thu and team were helpful, welcoming and made our stay easy and fun. Provided great info, perfect mix of professional and friendly!!
I stayed at two of their properties and I cannot tell you how amazing the space is. Even better, the hosts (Thao + Trevor) and their team are super nice. They are hospitable, informative, and just plain fun. I have recommended them to my friends and they love it as well!
Really great, clean, new studio with all mod cons. The staff were super friendly and helpful, adding up to a great stay - thanks guys!
Our stay at Christina's was great! Mike met us quite late after issues with flights and showed us around. Everything was just as described and very comfortable, friendly and easy going. The location is pretty perfect too. Mike gave us awesome food recommendations and we went to a couple of open mic jams at some local spots and had a great time. Their tour of the Cu Chi tunnels was such a good day. Good times and great hosts! Cheers, Chad & Robyn
Team Christina’s made us feel very welcomed. We arrived at night but were greeted by cheerful team members who offered us a fruit platter and some refreshing kumquat soda!
The villa is situated in a quiet neighborhood near the river and is only 20 mins bicycle ride to the old town. (Bicycle is available for rent from reception) We spend time soaking in the gorgeous view to the lagoon from our apartment (Villa 309) and enjoyed a dip in the pool, this is truly the perfect place to put your feet up and relax!
The staff are very helpful and professional, they helped us to book a private car to visit My Son and even hook us up to a cultural tour for our next stop in Ho Chi Minh city! They also arranged airport pick up and drop off for us (for a fee) so there’s no hassle trying to get a cab.
Would love to come back next time we are in Hoi An!
Très accueillant, appartement calme et reposant au milieux de cette ville si bruyante, l'appartement était fidèle à la description, je suis vraiment ravi... Merci
We enjoyed a lovely 3 night stay at Christina's. We were greeted by Duc, our awesome host. He waited up late as our flight was delayed. The rooms were emaculate, huge and there are some really lovely touches. They left a sweet note for us on arrival and I particularly enjoyed the perfume in the room:) Duc really made the stay special for us. He is such lovely, polite and bright young man who gave us loads of information on Saigon. Saigon is a crazily busy city so if u are like me and are a light sleeper, the room may be a little noisy. However this doesn't take away from the lovely atmosphere that Christina's provides.
The itinerary provided by the team was very helpful as a first time visitor to Saigon. Upon arrival Mike was very helpful in getting me settled in and showing me local places to eat and drink that we outside of the tourist areas. The room was clean and had brilliant air conditioning to escape the heat!
Mike was very generous with inviting me to nightly events and organised a fantastic motorbike tour for me with other guests staying at Christina's. I highly recommend Christina's!
Me and my sister loved our stay at Christina's dreamy sunshine villa. The property is located in the middle of an organic farming village which will give you an insite of the farmers day to day life. It is not far from the city center and they also provide you with bicycles.
The rooms are amazing and well decorated the surrounding views are also amazing.
The service was excellent they have helped us book our tours, taxi rides, and where always there to answer our questions and advise us you will really feel like your at home.
I highly recommend this place and I am happy that we got to experience it.
The Christina project in HCMC is simply the most well thought-through AirBnB I've come across. It's nice, spatious, clean, very well positioned in the city and the team of Christina, who are available to help you day and night make the place feel like a five star hotel, only managed by dear friends. This is how the new hybrid, between private home, hotel and service apartment actually can combine the best of all three. It offers the personal details of a home, the efficiency and facilities of a hotel, and privacy and comformt of a service apartment. Well done guys! Neville and Eka
What a fantastic experience. Christina's is a wonderful concept where the whole proerty with several studio flats is rented out through airbnb. The hosts were fantastic. They gave very detailed instructions on how to get to the property and even recommended the taxi driver to call to get directions. We were met at the door and shown to a very well maintained studio that is exactly as described.
Our host spent time showing us the main points of interest on the map and then showed us to a local restaurant for lunch. They helped us to arrange a city tour with students the next day (free with small donation). There was a mini bar in room with an honesty policy and very reasonable prices.
On our second evening the host and his friend accompanied us to dinner. The food was amazing and places we would not have found on our own.
A truly unique insight into Saigon and wonderful hosting, not only will we return but we will tell everyone we know. Thank you to all the staff at Christinas
This space was centrally located just minutes away from the famous Ben Thanh market and walking distance to Saigon Square. The surrounding area is full of shops, restaurants and massage centres. Location is safe to move around till late night. Host was warm and welcoming and provided all the necessary information for a first timer in the city. Place was basic and a good choice if you need a bed to sleep and explore the city.
Team Christina's welcomes you with refreshment, information, and offers of assistance as soon as you arrive. The apartment was clean, lovely, and centrally located as advertised. I will come again and will book team Christina's wherever they have properties.
I stayed for 2 days and it was really a good experience. The staff was really helpful and being able to come and go as you please was so helpful. Van greeted me, took me on a tour of the room and provided me with all the information I needed for a great say. The bed was great, not too soft, not too hard. The place is super new and clean. I stayed there with my Viet GF and she even cooked one night, the kitchen provides you that option which rocks. The towel are super clean and new and white and soft. The shower has hot water and great water pressure. There is free water in the lobby and they provide you with a GLASS water bottle to refill. All of the fixtures (toilet, sink, shower nozzles) are top quality so I was surprised when I noticed the electrical outlets where only the 2 prong round or 2 prong western style. Only one multiple International outlet I think in the room. It wasn't a problem for us but had we brought our laptops we would have been searching for an adapter. Our room was in the back of the building and it was super quiet! We will definitely stay there again!
This is a spectacular value. The room, location and amenities are as pictured. In fact better than pictured. The bathroom, kitchenette all fantastic. Highly recommended. Great Hosts. Couldn't be better.
Where to start? What an incredible trip that was only made possible with the amazing crew at Christina's and one of the most comfortable stays I've had on any vacation. Like others, I chose Christina's because of reviews, and I can assure you that you will not regret it. To really give a clear picture, let me go into our trip in detail. Firstly, communication via Airbnb was superb. If I had a question, they had an answer. We were completely prepared for our arrival and we were prepped on what to actually do once we arrived. Once we did arrive, we were greeted by Mike, who literally came out of the door as our taxi arrived and welcomed us. This was at 11 pm. Who is okay with staying up to do that? Apparently the staff at Christina's are. On our arrival we were given fresh fruit, and a run down on the properties. The rooms were spotless, individually air conditioned, and equipped with all the necessities one would need. After taking a look at the rooms, Mike took us to the common area to explain where we were, what was around us, and how to get around safely. My father (who is 63) felt so prepared and excited after the explanation that we immediately went out (yes at 11:30 pm now) to take a look around the city. Kudos to Mike for setting us up so that we had that confidence to go around. After a couple of hours, we were back in our rooms, going to bed in what I would say is the one of the most comfortable beds I've slept in in a while. My mom NEVER gets good sleep on the road, no matter the hotel, but she slept soundly that evening. We woke up early for our first tour. Enter: Long. 8 am he was waiting in the common area, wearing a black "Christina's" shirt and a smile like he was ready to tackle the world. We met, and immediately he said "treat me like your friend, not your guide", which really put my parents minds at ease. From there we were off to an amazing cu chi tunnel tour (private) hosted by Long, who catered to our every request and looked like he genuinely had fun going around with us. We started very local, banh mi with egg on the side of a street next to a food stall. Doesn't get more local than that. He had coffee (dripped) ready for us, and really wanted us to experience a real local breakfast. From there we hit some rice paper farms that was owned by someone he knew. He gave us the history on it and it was really cool to see this and unexpected. Then we stopped to look st the rubber plantation, and also a favourite spot of his to pick up some fresh sugar cane juice, all very very local and amazing. Yeah I know, we haven't even gotten to...
We booked last second for a quickie. Mike and Trevor exceeded our expectations in more ways than one. They showed us a different side of Saigon we never expected to see, and customized it to our every needs. They're very attentive and helpful, really blew us away. Heart balloons were flying everywhere between late night motorbike rides to dimly lit night clubs. Highly recommend. Well worth the dong.
p.s. the onetrip cu chi tunnel tour is a must
We both enjoyed staying at Christina's. The location is great just a short walk from all the main places you want to visit. The welcome talk was extremely helpful, providing us with a map and pointing out places to visit including places to eat that we probably would never have found.
The room is spacious, clean and is peaceful to get a good nights sleep.
Notre meilleur séjour au vietnam ! Cette chambre est idéalement placée, calme, très confortable, moderne et propre. Le personnel est adorable et décontracté, et répond instantanément à nos demandes.
Les salles communes sont très agréable et l'ambiance générale très chaleureuse. On se sent comme à la maison ! Nous avons adoré ho chi minh et espérons pouvoir revenir au même endroit !
Highly recommended for your stay in Ho Chi Minh City... great value, centrally located, spotlessly clean with every amenity and comfort one could hope for. Michael and the staff at Christina's are so welcoming and make you feel part of the family, offering all sorts of advice and assistance.
From the moment we arrived at the studio, we were made to feel very welcome. A brief orientation by Trevor was very helpful in getting our bearings, both for the amenities at this Christina's, the neighbourhood and the city in general.
Many small, thoughtful touches such as fresh lilies in the room, a platter of fruit upon arrival, and the general warmth of every member of the Christina team.
The rooms are generous and very well appointed, and the towels and linens are first rate. There is an elevator, which not all buildings in HCMC can boast.
Note that there are presently 3 Christina properties, and they are all a little different, so if there is something specific you are looking for, confirm in your correspondence (group kitchen, street view, etc).
It is about a 10-15 minute walk to restaurants (some local foods, and a cool bistro across the street with uneven hours for food service), but taxis in HCMC are generally very cheap, so getting around is not an issue.
The place was just as described. Check in was easy and communication was efficient. The place was clean and tidy.
Very pleased about our stay. Good location, walking distance to both Ben Thanh Market and Khu phố Phạm Ngũ Lão, very convenient for new comers. Room is clean and with all the basic equipments. Owner and all the staff were very helpful on everything, they helped us arrange a half day city tour with University students which was a wonderful experience on motorcycle. And also showed me where to buy the authentic Vietnamese coffee.
The only thing needs improvement is the soundproof of the room, we can heard people 'shouting' through the night.
All in all, really enjoyed staying here. Definitely recommend.
Great place to live in, very clean and well maintained. The host were very friendly and gave us many recommendations to visit too. Will definitely this place to people who are intending to visit Vietnam!
Very helpful, pointing out the best spots to visit and knowing if visited Saigon before gave helpful advice without pushing any specific tours etc. I'm actually calling back very soon.
A Big Thank You to Trevor who mapped out for us some great things to see and do around town! We really enjoyed our stay here.
Tra Que is a tucked away dream. We were fortunate to be able to stay in the presence of such a lovely rural neighborhood along quaint river, and local rice patty and vegetable gardens and farms. The resort itself is undergoing change of ownership, but that did not seem to interfere with the hospitality and attentiveness we received from every staff member especially Dung, who worked the evening shift and was so hospitable and accommodating.
There were some moments of miscommunication but they were minor and were resolved. The staff also have so many great recommendations which we found to be very helpful during our stay.
The resort itself is beautiful the rooms are very clean and well designed, with patterned pillows and small fixtures. The bathroom is very open. The tub is big, unfortunately we didn't get the chance to take a nice bubble bath but we will when we return. We did find the shower and the toilet layout to be a nuisance, because their is no drain in the middle of the floor plan were the toilet and shower are placed, water from your shower remains along the toilet, so you are constantly walking in your dirty shower water when using the toilet. However this was not a major issue, just something to adjust to.
For Tv viewers they have great selection of film/movie channels (HBO, Cinemax, STAR) which is great for late night movies in bed.
Overall there are so many perks to staying at Tra Que Resort, the friendly and accommodating staff, location, restaurant, big and spacious rooms and wonderful views of the pool and river. The pool is also a bonus its so nice and refreshing and long enough to do laps and relax. The resort also provides bikes and motor bikes which was a plus for us because we traveled around mainly by bikes, which made our trip even more memorable.
Thank you so much Tra Que for a wonderful experience and being so kind and welcoming. We will definitely being telling everyone about your lovely staff and beautiful resort

This is our first Airbnb exprience and we are more than satisfied with it. Both my boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay at Christina's. They are a perfect host and the room itself was fantastic.
The location of Christina's is in District 1. Though we spent some time finding the house since it is not on the main street, due to the same reason it is quiet with good privacy during the night. The house is safeguarded with two front doors before you enter the lobby which is a public area for a good relax (books, sofa, mini bar). We were staying at the only studio on the 4th floor. The room is tidy and nicely decorated. One could tell from the quality of sheet, the towel and everything that the host has been running the business attentively. The room is well aircontioned. We placed our booking being attracted to the balcony. It turns out to be a bit too hot to sit there for a while but we did took some good photos there (still like it a lot! Very tidy with white chairs and a small table and plants). One more thing about the room - I especially like the morning sunshine that brightens the bathroom which brings you good mood in the beginning of the day.
The host had been very helpful, nice and professional throughout the two days we had with Christina's. We enjoyed the small talks with the team of the Christina's. They speak very good English and are willing to help you to communicate with the locals.
My boyfriend is picky in a way but he says the experience is even better than 5 star hotels. We will definately recommend this house to my friends and will choose to stay here again the next time I visit Ho Chi Mihn City.
Clean, comfortable room in a small building on a quiet side street in District 1—close to everything but somehow peaceful. Staff were friendly and attentive. One especially thoughtful touch: having access to clean drinking water right in the Airbnb! (It was so nice not to waste even more plastic bottles.) We took the tour to the Mekong Delta with Jack and Emma—highly recommended! Only one (small) criticism: hot water was pretty erratic. Then again, a cold shower was usually a plus after a day on Saigon's streets in 35C heat...
My husband and I stayed at Christina's House for 2 nights on the final leg of a 2 week trip in Vietnam and had a wonderful experience. From the moment we walked in the door, all of the hosts were extremely welcoming and gave us a number of great recommendations that helped us maximize our limited time in Saigon. The room was very clean, spacious, and had everything you could need. I'd recommend Christina's House to anyone. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
