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 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.
The apartment is located between Ben Than and Bui Vien so it couldn't be more convenient.
The communication has been excellent and I ended up staying an extra 3 nights as I was most happy.
The apartment was excellent and Michael was an great host. This is the perfect central location, just a block from the Ben Thanh Market, and walking distance to everything in District 1. The building itself is tucked away into a secure alley, away from the busy street, surrounded by friendly local neighbors. The way Christina's group operates, it's more like a hotel with someone always at the front desk during the day. The hosts are super-friendly, knowledgeable about the city, and live (URL HIDDEN) you can always get a great recommendation for activities, restaurants, logistics etc. We'll definitely go back to HCMC and stay with Christina's again. Cheers!
We just had a great 5 night stay here. These guys really care about their guests and are willing to go the extra mile. The room is exactly as pictured and in a great location. I highly recommend staying here!!
Cristina's is not only about an excellent location/servicing and hosting, but it is also about the people. Thuc and all of the stuff are of amazing hospitality and professionalism, a guarantee that you are in 'good hands' along your trip in Vietnam.
Best Trip Ever! Mike and Christina's team were amazing to us! They really made our Vietnam HCMC trip very memorable!! The service and friendliness were top notch and we had a great room to match! They made a strong and very good first impression, it all started when Mike waited for us and greeted us at the front of the alley as soon as our Taxi pulled up (we used Song Viet as recommended by the host). We sat in the lobby with a fresh welcome fruit platter and a couple of glasses of cool water. We were uneasy and skeptical about visiting Vietnam, but Mike gave us a run down of the city with recommendations of places to eat, things to do, and estimated prices to pay. We ended up doing a lot of those suggestions, one notable event was the trip to Mekong Delta, with our tour guide, Long (pronounced "Lom"). He was knowledgeable, courteous, and passionate about his job. We could instantly tell he loved what he did, and it made the expedition that much more enjoyable. We also had a chance to have a friendly dinner together after the tour to share our travel experiences and continue on the wonderful day. Long was a good guy and we highly recommend him as a tour guide. The other reviews are correct about the location, it's really good, but I think the service hospitality really set this place apart. Honesty fridge was a nice and special touch. Would 100%, definitely stay here again, perfect 5 star rating - and tell everyone they should stay here too. 53 days of travel around SE Asia, this was our #1. (We ate @ Secret garden, Ho Thien after 9pm at N-something. Tour: Mekong and University guided tour).
My friend and I had a wonderful time at Thu's place. The listing was very accurate, actually it was even better in real life. The room was spacious and very clean and quiet.
The place is located very centrally but in a small alley away from the bustle. Perfect for a weekend in Ho Chi Minh.
The host was also extremely friendly and gave us some great tips.
I would recommend to stay here is you are staying in Ho Chi Minh City. You feel at home.
Yes sometimes some unexpected things will happen - we got some problems with our australian visa and could'nt check in at the Airport... At 11pm we went back to christina's and than the good part of the story begun ... Thoai & Mike gave us another room (with the babygrib) - really uncomplicated.
The next day we had to manage a lot of stuff and it wasn't shure we could travel on, because our flight back was also canceled ... And yes there happend to much things to right it down here - to make it short: Thoai escorted me to the headquarter of Vietnam airlines and managed and translated all that things for us and in the end we could travel on the same day - so again many many thanks for this! This is absolutely unusual someone will be as helpfull as Thoai was - really great!
We would give 10 Stars if we could ...
My husband and I stayed at the Mothership location. Our main host was Phung and she was very helpful! She responds to questions and issues almost immediately. A few times we got lost looking for a restaurant or shop and she helped it guide us. Any request or problem Phung was available to help us. Her English is perfect as well!
The room we had was perfectly clean and beautifully decorated. One night some ants tried to visit us but the team was able to sort that problem out right away and cleaned our room and put new bed sheets on the bed. They even apologized about the situation. They gave us a welcome chocolate bar as a present and I think the ants found their way to the chocolate.
The location is superb. This particular Airbnb was the hub where all the team come for meetings to expand and improve Christina's Saigon. Be aware that your room is perfectly private but the shared communal office/ space does have some visitors :). We didn't mind much because we usually needed phung for help with something and she was usually downstairs working.
My husband and I both agree that when we visit Vietnam HCMC again we would definitely booked here again in a heartbeat!
The Airbnb is super clean, has an elevator, and is so cozy! They are among the top places to book on airbnb and they have a ton of listings. Stay here. You will not be disappointed! Thanks again!
Also book Onetrip tours with them. The motorbike tour is great!
The rooms are clean and the location also was the best .
Communication was also smooth and comfortable stay .
Our stay at Christina's is great!!!! Michael and team welcomed us with fruits and detailed tour around the house, and also passed us a map with various tips to get around the city.
The apartment is truly located in the heart of many must-go tourist attractions and good food!
The room is clean, fully furnished and complete! The pictures are exactly what we experienced during our stay. We packed food back and enjoyed sitting at the common balcony over view of the city. We even washed our clothes and returned home with fresh clothes.
Michael never rejects any request or queries you have for him, and is a really great host! He gave us sufficient privacy we needed, and attended to us whenever we have any problems.
We experienced zero hassle throughout our stay.
I would highly recommended Christina house to anyone looking for a fantastic home away from home experience in the heart of Saigon.
The rooms are super comfortable and the guys running it are great as well. I was greeted by one of the brothers Thuc on arrival and he immediately made me feel at home.
The bathrooms are nice, clean and modern. There's free laundry and it's located only a 15 minute walk from Ben Than market. They also work with university students who want to improve their English to provide free tours around the city.
Overall fantastic experience. Highly recommend this place.
My stay with Christina's is more than fantastic !! The place was great , perfect location (next Ben Thanh market and just a quick turn from the bus station which I too bus from the airport to the city , cost me 5000dong ) , very clean , spacious and we had all the help we needed. The space was big and well equipped. I must say it even better than most of the small hotels in the city. The place was easy to find and was not noisy like dusty like the Main Street , so I am very Glad to get a good night rest despite being so near to the bustling streets filled with yummy food and cafe. Will definitely recommend it to anyone Travelling to HCMC especially for the first time like me. The host will point you in the right direction for all the yummy food u need to try.
We had an amazing stay at this apartment in Ho Chi Minh. We were greeted by the friendly Loc who gave us a lovely introduction to the city. We were shown the beautiful split level apartment that was clean, modern and bright! It was everything we needed! The laundry services were especially good! Also the shower can definitely be called a power shower! I would recommend this apartment to all.
We really enjoyed our stay at Christians in HCMC. Despite both our flights to HCMC being delayed by a total of 12 hours they were completely accommodating with our 2am arrival (we had kept them advised of our progress end route). Room immaculately clean, modern and in a great location. They arranged a great day out to the Chichi tunnels for us which we really enjoyed. Would recommend this completely.
Can't recommend this place enough! Lovely, big clean room, right in the middle of Saigon with amazing, friendly staff! Cu chi tunnels trip off the beaten track is a must!! Thanks for everything!
Fantastic experience.. Our host Mike was very friendly and went out of his way to ensure our trip was enjoyable. We had a great first night at a jazz bar nearby watching him and his friends play excellent music. The room was spacious, comfortable and well designed. I would definitely recommend staying here. If we're ever back in Ho Chi Minh, we will definitely try and stay here. Thanks so much guys!
A very comfortable room to stay. Great service from Host Trac. Very good location. Alot of good eating places around. Had a good experience. The best place to stay.
All of my expectations regarding my stay at Christina's and the city of Saigon were exceeded and then some. I loved the apartment and the location in the city. Mike showed us some of his favorite dining / hangout spots and I had an amazing time that I'll remember for the rest of my life.
Staying with Thu and team Christina's was awesome, as an Airbnb host (with Super Host status) these guys really taught us what being an awesome host is all about. The room itself, was clean, tidy, modern and well situated in District 1. The honesty fridge was a great idea and was much needed after a big day exploring. They also organised some local students to take us on a city tour and guide us through some of the historical sights. They also advised us on the must eat places and they were 100% spot on with the recommendations. If your going to Saigon, then stay with these guy's, you wont be sorry. We will be back, you can count on that.
Terrific welcome with solid street food recommendations. We tried them all and were very happy for the leads! She also arranged a car for us to the airport the next morning at 5:30 am. Really nice. For our last 9 hours in Saigon, this was a perfect place to set down.
My partner and I stayed at Christina's for 4 days and this is place is freaking awesome! The experience and hospitality is top quality.
We've been using Airbnb for quite some time now and we would definitely rate this our best! Everyone was so kind and helpful. Right from the moment we stepped into the apartment building, we were welcomed with fruits and ice cold water :)
They even helped my partner with planning a mini surprise (with birthday cake) for my birthday. They went above and beyond and decorated the rooftop with fairy lights and fire crackers!
Location of the apartment was excellent too. Just a short 3mins walk to Ben Thanh Market and easily accessible to all the usual attractions. Convenience store is just across the road as well. Apartment was clean and well-equipped for maximum comfort and communication was super easy right from the start!
We got to meet Thu, Christina and Trevor during our stay and these guys are just simply awesome people to hang with! Definitely staying here again when we come back to visit :)
Candy was very helpful and friendly!
The place is great, well situated in the city and absolutely comfortable and clean
This stay was amazing and the best yet of any Airbnb property I have used. The rooms are absolutely spotless with cable television and wifi. The bathrooms are equally clean with shampoo and body soap provided. Small kitchen with all the needed utensils. Roof deck offers two washers and dryers with laundry detergent, all free of charge. Small stocked fridge. Perfect location to all the city sights, and the staff goes above and beyond to accommodate your stay and to offer advice of things to see and do, including assistance with tours (we booked a food tour and it was A+). The value cannot be beaten. If I return to Ho Chi Minh city, this is the only place I would stay.
This apartment is amazing, absolutely clean, spacious and comfortable. Location was superb, and we could walk to everywhere we needed in the city. Check-in was also very smooth. The moment we stepped in, we were greeted with a huge chalkboard that welcomed us with our names and a really adorably drawn owl, the personal touch was very nice. Trevor was also waiting for us with fruits, even when our flight got delayed and we only arrived at 11pm. He also took the effort to sit us down and, with a pen and map in hand, gave us many recommendations on places to go/eat. He was very prompt to help us with any requests we had over the next few days. Great host, great apartment, absolutely nothing to complain about!
Candy was our best host in Vietnam. We booked only our last night for our holiday,but she was ok to meet us on our first day of arrival.she helped us to organize for us several trips in Vietnam and all of them were super good so would reccomend her also for putting your trip together and she listens also our ideas before suggesting what we should do.
Location was quite central but slightly hard to find the first time due to the numbering system of the street, make sure you follow the instructions. Room was clean, cosy and look exactly like in picture. The house hosts a few different rooms, feels safe and very homely for guests. Hosts were welcoming and organize different tours for guests although we didnt have enough time to explore during our trip. We also had a impromptu sneak preview of the upcoming food tour which was great fun :)
Pho Hung is right across the street and open till late, lovely beef soup nooodle there. The saigon coffee & tea place right next to the house served very impressive Vietnamese coffee. Definitely recommend to check them out!
A wonderful place to stay to explore Saigon. Our room was on level 4 and had a little balcony with a view over local streets. Thu and his team were amazing and there was a host staying at the property at all times to answer any questions or organise tours. We did several tours with OneTrip who are associated with Christina's. We met some wonderful local students and local tour guides on a Saigon tour, evening food tour and Cu Chi tour. All interesting, reasonably priced and helping support an excellent social enterprise. Would most definitely stay here again.
Minh An was our contact person during our stay in HCM. He made us feel welcomed and feel like home. He and his team provided all kind of assistance in arranging tours and transportation. Superb host!
We had a great stay at Christina's, one of the best accommodation experiences in Vietnam for us. Place was clean, well located and cool. With nice touches like the 'honesty fridge' for beers and snacks. The staff were very friendly and added to the atmosphere, especially Duc who helped us out a lot and would chat to us about our day and give good tips. Highly recommend, they have places all over Vietnam (which we didn't realise) so have a look to get great place to stay if you're travelling across the country.
Christina's was perfect - great location for first time visitors, spotlessly clean, quiet. Our hosts pointed out places of interest on the map and had great restaurant recommendations. We would definitely go back.
Absolutely wonderful stay. Trevor and his team were super friendly and gave us suggestions on things to see and do that you can't find anywhere in travel books! The room looks exactly as you see in pictures. Super clean, new, spacious. The apartment is close to everything - less than 5 minute walk to Ben Thanh Market, street food, Bui Vien/Pham Ngu Lao Street (to book tours, cheap drinks). The free uni students tour around HCM was excellent- a great opportunity to get to know locals.
This is a good concept - it's apartments but run a bit like a hostel where they have enthusiastic young staff to welcome you and give you tips on seeing the city. It's well managed too - the apartments are clean and fully fitted with an honesty bar and the staff are friendly, so it offers a more personal touch than if you just booked a normal room or stayed in a hotel. The location is good as well, in the centre but just on a little through road, so avoids the mad street chaos outside plus there are some interesting cafes nearby to refresh yourself. Recommended.
Good, but internet wasn't reachable in all rooms, bedroom signal kept dropping
A spacious, clean and modern house with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. We love this place providing very cosy accmodations. The staffs are also very helpful in planning our trips and recommending us the brillant stuffs in the city!
Our family of 6 people stayed at this lovely place for four nights. Here is some highlight points: 1. The management team is very responsible, quick, with easy access. They live in the same building; therefore, can response very quickly. 2. Location: there is a convenient store next to the building, easy reach for some emergency food and drink. All other tourist site and restaurants were located in District 1. District 1 is across from the bridge closed by, maybe around 30 minutes walking distance. But taxi price is so cheap, normally around 50,000 (USD 3), we never walked. Be very careful that the taxi is not so honest, we got cheated for 300,000 (USD 15) for one trip. 3. Apartment: the apartment is very newly remodeled with very nice river view. It has fully equipped kitchen and washer. We feel like we have stayed home. The only minus point of this apartment is that pillows are really not comfortable. Management team should consider to change the pillows.
The whole team at Christina's were absolutely amazing; great local recommendations and happy to help with anything that cropped up, even rescuing us when our moped got a puncture. The facilities were great, the location is half-way between the beach and the town but a 5 minute cycle or very short taxi ride either way. We would highly recommend Christina's to anyone visiting Hoi An!
Very clean place with good bathrooms and a very comfortable bed.
The people working there are very nice and friendly and really seem to care. Almost a bit like a hotel, but not in a bad way.
Beautiful room in a good location in HCMC. Staff were all very friendly and helpful, would do all they could for you. Went on 2 trips which were both very enjoyable.
A lil comfy cosy spot, accompanied by pretty awesome hosts.
