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 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!
The place is fantastic and the guys are fantastic! Can not recommend this place enough to anybody visiting Ho Chi Minh!
The room is clean, cool and comfortable with its own minibar at great prices and the guys are more than happy to help you however they can!
We would 100% recommend their motorbike tours through OneTrip as the guide was excellent and a real safe driver!
Our experience was great here. Everyone was super helpful, the location was amazing (close to pretty much anything you might want to see in Saigon) and it was so clean. The bed was comfortable, which we really appreciated as we've been traveling through Vietnam and Cambodia for a few weeks and that's certainly not always the case. We felt welcome and we felt very safe and secure.
very friendly stuff, huge and modern bathroom and overall recommendable!
quiet area in walking distance to everything :)
As always the Christina's team went out of their way to make the stay a success; everything from restaurant bookings, intros to local etc worked flawlessly!
Great experience in Ho Chi Minh City. Location next the main attractions of the city, clean and large room, fridge with cold drinks to ease hot days, and the main ... the hospitality of the hosts is incomparable. They made a wonderful experience, indicating places to visit, local foods for dinner, and small motorbike ride in the chaotic traffic of the city.
Our stay in HCMC would not be complete without our time at Christina's Saigon...The accommodations and staff are great...We were made to feel that we had arrived home after a long trip...This was our second stay and we will be back when in Saigon...
Thu, Mike & Minh An were simply wonderful hosts!! This place is a true find! They absolutely deserve Superhost status. Everything has been thought out for your stay, the rooms are divine. So divine you'll want to move in... The location is it perfect. We were greeted from the moment we stepped out of the taxi & made to feel at home as soon as we came in. They will offer you plenty of advice, even before you've thought of the questions! They're always on hand & for a building that is in the centre of HCM they have somehow perfected the feeling of being in a serene country setting. Guaranteed a great experience. Snap it up if it's free for your dates, miss it miss out!
This is my home away from home. This apartment is as comfortable as my very own home and the team in Christinas Saigon is like my very own family (warm, caring, flexible)! See you soon again guys!
we have stayed with Christina's twice before and will again when we return to saigon later this month. this booking was for our parents, who the team took great care of and went out of their way to make comfortable during their stay even shifting rooms arounds in order to give them a super late checkout before they began their long travel back home.
I highly recommend looking for a Christina's accommodation wherever you are in Vietnam!
Staying with Christina's team absolutely enhanced the whole HCMC experience! Situated at a very convenient and good to explore around location. Jeff and I are still very amazed at how promptly Thuc and the team replies to our messages and always manages to make us feel very comfortable during our length of stay! We really appreciate the nice details, like the welcoming whiteboard and the lovely flower in our room that bloomed when we were there. :)
Highly recommend the city tour with the college students, it's one of our best memories there. Amazing group of fellas who are absolutely way better than most of the tourguides out there
To be honest, if you are not a seasoned city tourist and tend to stick to places like Phuket, Bali, boracay; you'll really really appreciate the tips ,maps ,recommendations and even tours you can get from Christina's team. Because of them, we are in love with HCMC. :) 10/10 will recommend!
Can't wait for Christina's team to expand to other areas! Thank you for the great adventure
The Christina's team really have a handle on how to make you feel welcome and comfortable. They have tweaked the balance between interaction and privacy to the point of perfection as far as I'm concerned.
All of them are incredibly warm and genuine without being boringly "serious". That's not to say they aren't professional, they certainly are, but they manage to do it all without being overly earnest. They are approachable, friendly folks, with great local knowledge who you want to get to know.
The resort itself is lovely. The rooms are immaculate and - with only 9 suites (I think?) on site - the place feels private with every room offering an excellent view, either of the swimming pool, the (quite large) fishing pond or the landscape and surrounding fields.
Speaking of which... you are located on the vegetable-growing island midway between the old port and the beach. Obviously it's conveniently located between the two above-mentioned locations but additionally, it is very quiet and peaceful without any tourist traps or other accommodation in the near vicinity. It really feels like you are in the middle of a rural Vietnamese locale. It's lovely.
I hired a motor scooter (cheap and easy) and I would recommend this approach or a bicycle. The scooter ride either to the port or beach is only 5 minutes but you wouldn't want to have to walk it multiple times per day. Additionally some transport gives you the opportunity to explore the surrounds further afield.
If you like the privacy of not staying in someone's house, appreciate something (a lot!) nicer than a hostel but really don't like the idea of a big touristy hotel, this is your place.
We had a great time at Christina's. The room was clean and exactly and even better than the description. The staff was extremely friendly and even organized a tour for us in the city.
This was our first of 3 stays with Christina's, and we were extremely happy with each stay. We were greeted upon arrival, and leading up to our stay communication was very good. They even made some recommendations for obtaining a visa and getting a car service from the airport. Upon arrival, Trevor sat down with us and an easy-to-use map and made some recommendations. We visited almost every place that he recommended and were very pleased with all of it. The honesty fridge was very convenient as well. The room was comfortable and stylishly decorated. The bed was pretty comfortable, although many mattresses in Vietnam were firm compared to American standards. This one was no exception although certainly still comfortable. Since we had been traveling for quite some time, we were pretty beat, but the room has large curtains that were easily closed to keep the room dark for sleeping. Across the street is a convenient coffee shop and bistro that had excellent Vietnamese coffee. The location is convenient to things that we wanted to see and do as well. The last night we were there, we hung out with the staff on the rooftop and had some great conversation. We also took advantage of having laundry available as we packed very lightly and wanted to freshen up some of our travel clothes. The only thing that was a little surprising was that they require that they hang on to your passport while you are staying with them. We weren't aware of the policy, so we were a little thrown off. Otherwise, everything was wonderful!
Thank you for the amazing hospitality! We stayed in multiple cities in our one month in Vietnam, and this place felt closest to home. The rooms are very clean and supplied with top quality bedding and towels. Thu and the staff are some of the friendliest people we've met. They are all about welcoming their guests into the "Christina Family". The location is perfect in District 1. One of the best AirBnb experiences. We will definitely come back on our next visit.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this Christina's location and would recommend it to any of my contacts. Both Thao and Trevor were excellent hosts, giving great recommendations and personalizing a map of the area marking the key locations to visit! I only wish I could have stayed longer as the location was great for exploring much of Ho Chi Minh on foot.
Pre-arrival was fast and with no issues..the team is quick at responding at my questions, requests and alteration. During the trip, we were taken care of by Mike, whom is pretty informative about the area and my parents were happy with his friendliness and they are comfortable staying in Christina's. Mike even explain the to-go places in HCMC and also hooked us up with a guide to bring us ard the city. Location is really good..we are really in the middle of everything..less than 5mins walk to Ben Thanh market and if u walk further up you'll be able to get to Saigon Square as well..also a good location for Muslim travellers..nearby to a street of halal restaurants..Loft is exactly in the pictures here and super clean..essential stuffs are provided (towels/body soap/shampoo). The building is in an alley and really quiet away from all the disturbance. Really love this place. Will definitely come back.
Christinas to the rescue! After a mini crisis at a another place I was staying (since I was basically Airbnb hopping--though Christinas will forever remain my first choice!), Christinas was more than happy to accommodate me on an extremely short notice. Displaying time and again their efficiency (on top of everything else), I felt like I was home safe after returning them. Thanks guys!
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!
I highly recommend Thu and the Christina's team. Trevor was our host and he was awesome! He gave us recommendations for great places to eat and awesome bars. The team went above and beyond when we tried to figure out how to squeeze in the Cu Chi Tunnels. When I visit Vietnam again I will 100% be staying at a Christina's location and highly recommend anyone else to do the same.
Stayed at Christina's in District 1 for two nights. Staff were very friendly and room was as described - clean, quiet and modern, and close to plenty of eateries. Not particularly roomy, but that's the norm in the city. Will be happy to stay again.
Les appartements sont neuf et très propres, l'accueil est vraiment chaleureux et tout le monde est au petit soin. Le prix des consos du mini-bar sont loin d'être abusives et marchent sur la confiance (vous laissez dans un petit panier, l'argent de ce que vous avez consommé).
Les apparts sont idéalement situés, bref si tous les AirBnBs était comme ça, ce serait parfait!
Ne changez rien ;)!
This was the best airbnb experience I've had! At Christinas the hosts go above and beyond to accommodate your needs and make you feel right at home from the very first day. The place is very spacious, clean and centrally located to all the best foods spots and night life in the city.
Christinas definitely made my stay in Ho Chi Minh much more enjoyable. I would highly recommend anyone on the fence of booking to just book!!! You wont regret it. No hotel will provide as good a service and space for this price :)
We stayed here for a few nights on a 2 week trip through Vietnam. My 7 year old just adored the accommodation - the room looked exactly as it did in the photo, instructions on how to get there/what to expect were perfect, and the common areas were relaxing and friendly. My son loved the bananas with condensed milk especially :) The location is good for exploring HCM, and the Chinese noodles especially across the road were excellent. It was really hot, so having good air-conditioning was important (and Christina's had this!) Would be happy to stay there again.
I attribute it to beginner's luck-- my first AirBnB experience at Christina's was nothing short of sterling.
After a thousand dollar mishap at the airport, we booked a flight to HCM with an hour away from boarding. When we made it past Immigration, I took a chance with AirBnb and found Christina's. After explaining my dilemma, Thu was quick to respond to my distressed messages, and gave me instructions to the place. Our arrival by taxi also marked the end of our pitiful night, as Minh An was indulgent, sympathetic, and friendly. As we were three, they added an airbed(free of charge), along with extra towels. The room was pristine and hotel-like, but it was in the details and the personal touch that made all the difference. Being travelers themselves, they made sure the room was equipped with the necessities. They even had perfume we could use. Fresh lilies on the table was nice and personal.
I appreciated how Minh An and Thuc were there to help us organize our trips around the city. We had the city tour with two students for free, who were good company, friendly, and informative. Our Cu Chi tunnel trip on motorbike was another experience altogether-- it was exciting, it was new, it was very Saigon in its appeal. We were roasted by the end of the trip, but the rare experience of being on motorbike in a foreign country would be an experience I'd never forget.
Because we had to check out at 12pm, and our flight wasn't until 1am the following day, Team Christina's was gracious to offer that we stay in the couches and beanbags in the common area of the apartment, and offered a shower at Minh An's room. It was free, but they still provided us with fresh towels. The hours leading to our flight were spent talking and fooling around with Giang, Minh An, Thu, and Thuc. At 10 pm, Thu, who was tired from the busy days he has had, still offered to drive us to the airport (as he was also going to pick his aunt up). When we respectfully declined, he was adamant that we join him and his family in their car.
In the three days that we spent in Saigon it was evident how Team Christina's puts premium on the small details that make any trip nothing short of unforgettable. A family in Energetic Saigon. 6 out of 5 stars plus a moon! Can't wait to be back!
Superbe expérience avec l'équipe de Christina's. L'emplacement est parfait, toute l'équipe est toujours disponible pour nous donner des conseils, la qualité de l'hébergement est cinq étoiles. Dommage qu'ils ne soient pas présent dans différents pays.
Merci spécial à Trevor qui nous a assisté avant pendant et même après notre séjours.
À bientôt j'espère.
I can't think of a better place to get into Saigon. The hosts are really great. Rooms were nice and clean plus there are drinks for a very fair price in the fridge. The guys really care for you and even give you a local phone to call in emergency cases.
All in all a great experience.
Pls keep in mind that one is in the middle of Saigon, so it can be loud at night outside of the room.
The Christina's experience is by far this most comprehensive and detailed hospitality experience I have ever experience. From the quality details and the features of the accommodation to the local perspective of the friendly and informative staff, Thu and the Christina's staff will be sure to make your experience throughout Vietnam a memorable one.
This was the perfect place! I stayed for about one month and the staff were all super friendly and helpful. The room was very cute and it truly felt more like coming home every night. Trevor, Thu, and all of the service staff were amazing. They helped with laundry, dry cleaning and checked me in and out in the early hours of the morning. They always had special treats for holidays, birthdays, events which gave the place a nice homelike feeling yet with a ton of privacy. I am definitely coming back!
Die Beschreibung der Unterkunft war wie im Internet beschrieben und alle Angestellten waren sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend.
Had an amazing stay! Fantastic location, easy to get around with the free bikes provided. Hosts were extremely gracious and helpful. Room was much nicer than expected. Will definitely be back!
I have 16 airbnb experiencia in the last 12 months, and this is by far, the best value for your money.
The place is modern ( very important in Ho Chi Minh) very large, tastefully decorate, and greatly located.
Both your Hostess are western raised, and understand PERFECTLY your needs and expectations, they definitely go beyond the call of duty.
I was even invited to see one of their friends play in a band at a local club
I was leaving early the next day and got in late from a business dinner so I missed it.
I wll definitely return again and again, for both business and pleasure
Une très belle chambre moderne très propre et bien situé. Accueil très chaleureux C est un appart hôtel nikel lit et serviettes top qualité. Centre ville à portée de promenade. Merci
Same as previous mail
The accomadation is really nice and clean just like what you see in the photo. But for me the best part of this trip was the host. Really fun team and they guided me on my first trip to Vietnam on where i should eat and how i should cross the road which i would say is an art in itself where traffic light has no use. Really enjoyed my time there althought it was really short. Would definately go back again and stay with them so that they could recommand me more exciting stuff to do and where the best food is!
This was a fantastic place to stay ! Exactly as the photos and write ups showed !
The location was great , there was always someone around to suggest restaurants etc
Clean , fresh room , great to com back to after the heat of HCMC !
Would recommend to anyone that wanted a different experience to a big hotel !
Everything was truly perfect. Trevor was super warm and nice. The honest fridge was a nice touch, many little things they paid attention to like towels, soap, attraction recommendations, wifi etc. The overall experience was excellent.
I was greeted by a very friendly and helpful people, Trevor and Thu, they where fantastic with directions, suggestions and all kinds of ideas to help me enjoy my time in Saigon. The room was terrific, large, bright and very comfortable. I'm sure I'll be back.
We had a great Stay in christina's. Whats a Nice, clean place on a very good location!!
We had an amazing time at Christina's! The room was spotless, super comfortable, and reasonably priced for the superb quality. The location was also fantastic, we loved just walking around the neighborhood exploring and we could take a quick cab ride to any of the further destinations we wanted to see. All of the owners and employees were so kind and accommodating, they really went above and beyond. We were incredibly lucky to be in town for new years. The gang took the whole house out to a rooftop dinner at Secret Garden followed by the best damn firework show ever and a fun night out. I can't forget to mention I got to meet Christina and the whole amazing group of girls who were so wonderful, I had such a blast with you all! The experience really embodied a community feel which I was thrilled to get out of one of my first Airbnb experiences. Overall I highly recommend Christina's Saigon and we hope to be back one day soon. Thanks guys for a very memorable experience.
