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.
Our stay at the apartment was great. The place is very cozy and the location was perfect. Arriving at the Southern Cross station was a 2 minute walk across the street. Tram right next to it as well (the apartment is inside the free tram zone) which made very easy to take #96 to St. Kilda and once we got the hang of it, we were "tramming" all over the city. Also very convenient to take the SkyBus from/to the airport. The kitchen had enough utensils to prepare breakfast and some simple dinners. Bed very comfortable and more than enough space in drawers and closet for our stuff. Entrance very secure and place was pretty quiet, especially because the bedroom is on the back of the apartment. We had an issue with the washing machine not turning on and after sending them an email, we got a response within minutes. Someone was gonna stop by a little later to take a look at it, but we discovered the power button above the wall plug behind the washer and dryer was turned off, so it was a quick fix, and they didn't need to come all the way to the place. Wifi was great, and the balcony offered a nice and bright view of the city. I would definitely recommend the place to anyone looking a great place to stay in Melbourne.
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
Awesome place ! Rooms are better in reality than in photos ! Very very friendly staff ! Awesome stay and will come again for sure !
Great proximity to the racecourse. Well appointed apartment with everything you could possibly need.
The host was very welcoming. As it is slightly tucked in the private alley, the host (Mike) was waiting for us outside upon arriving. The room was absolutely spot on. It made us feel well at home and gave us that little quietness away from the busy streets of Saigon. Clean room, nicely decorated (exactly as shown in the pictures) and has good security.
We were well informed of what to look out for and things to do in the city. Also, we highly recommend the Chu Chi tunnel motorbike tour. Its a well tailored trip experiencing the best of the Vietnam's country side and visiting the historic tunnel. Unlike the generic tunnel site which is flooded with tourist and busses, we got pretty a much private tour on the other site. And this is all organised by the host!!!
All the staff are very friendly and very happy to help us.
The location is very ideal as it is pretty much right in the middle of all the touristy spots. 2 mins walk from the Ban Thanh Market, 10mins to War Museum, 5 minutes walk from Bu Vien - the location just can't get any better.
One of our favourite bit is the adorable pup that rules the alley!
Definitely recommend staying here! I know I will next time I'm in Saigon!
Absolutely great experience. Everything as described, very clean, appartment looks like a new one...and its very quite even in this central location! Hosts are absolutely chilled guys, everything went smoothly. Next time i definitely stay here again:)
Great place for anyone who’s traveling through Saigon. Neat and clean, great lighting and comfortable mattress and pillows. If you’re looking for a reliable, safe and central spot at a reasonable price- look no further. Truyen’s help with endless tips on where to eat like a local, to get an in depth experience of the local life style. On top of that, there’s a great little coffeeshop on the third floor, which offers fresh juices, great coffee and little snacks. I found myself spending significant time up there, listening to the relaxing tunes after a hot day of exploring the vibrant city of Saigon. Definitely best bet for that price and package.
It was a great stay. The Room was exactly as shown, very clean and stylish.
The people there are very helpful and friendly.
I can only recommend it.
But anyway, go Liverpool :P
L'appartement est dans un immeuble pratiquement neuf composé uniquement d'appartement loués sur Airbnb. Une équipe de jeune gens de différents pays prennent soin de l'accueil et de surveiller l'immeuble. La deco est très agréable et moderne. Beaucoup plus agréable qu'une chambre d'hôtel. À recommander.
Usual high standard we have come to expect from Christina's.
Excellent room ,well appointed and spotless.
Obliging and responsive team. Well done all.
The apartment was spotless and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. I was on the fourth floor so I also had easy access to the rooftop patio. The location couldn't be any more convenient as it's within walking distance to the major attractions in Saigon. I walked everywhere and learned quickly how to cross busy intersections with scooters coming at you from all angles. Just part of the experience!
Our experience with team Christina was fantastic from the moment we arrived right through to the end of our stay. We were greeted with warmth and genouristy and it felt like home-thank you!
The rooms were clean, comfortable and cool.
Highly recommend team Christina!!
Trevor, Van & Kai were excellent hosts, sharing tips about the city and looking after us like old friends. The location was central, just one street from Ben Thanh, and walking distance to most sights. The rooms were small but clean and well-equipped with modern showers and a small kitchenette. I won't hesitate to recommend to others to stay here if they want a more intimate and personal experience.
Absolutely amazing experience. Great for solo travelers. They had my favorite fresh flowers in the room. Spotlessly clean, also, they cleaned my suite several times during my stay. Would definitely stay there again and can highly recommend.
THE HOST AND HIS STAFF ARE SUPER NICE. THE ROOMS ARE CLEAN, CHIC AND SPACIOUS. THE BED AND LINENS ARE COMFORTABLE.
Again a wonderful experience from a great host. The #1 place to stay in HCMC to experience the culture of the city from a local perspective.
미리 예약했던 숙소가 너무 위치가 멀어서 급하게 부랴부랴 예약한 아파트인데 위치도 번화가에서 멀지 않은데다가 가격 대비 시설 퀄리티 또한 훌륭하여 만족도가 매우 높았습니다. 세련된 객실도 360도 전망을 감상할 수 았는 옥상 풀장도 마음에 쏙 들었어요! 근처 게스트하우스에 짐도 맡겨주셔서 다음날까지 몸도 마음도 가볍게 호치민 여행을 즐길 수 있었습니다. 강력 추천드려요!
Great little guest house with super friendly and helpful staff. You'd never get lonely at Christina's, there's always lovely people around in the communal living rooms and kitchens for a nice chat or to give you some advice.
Actually, we tried loads of their recommendations and they were all great. I would trust their recommendations entirely.
The room is perfectly located for exploring HCMC, and it's right near some great food joints (ask where to get the best Pho ever and the guys at Christina's can point you there!)
Really liked the building, it's got modern living room areas, some nice kitchen spaces and a good washing machine or two which you're welcome to use. (Very helpful!)
We also loved playing with Joie Joie the puppy :-) beautiful girl!
Thanks again for a lovely stay.
See you again some time!
Our stay with Christina's was the best we have had! The place is wonderful, very comfortable and beautiful rooms and a nice pool. It is located at a quiet area outside of town, perfect for relaxation. the taxi into town is really cheap, and a bike ride to the beach takes only 5 minutes. Breakfast is served every morning; a buffet with fresh fruits, juices, yoghurt, eggs cooked by a chef, local food and bread.
apart from the comfortable stay, what made this Airbnb so good was the staff. They're not only there to help you, but they actually want to build a community and make this place a social meet-up. they are really nice, as well as all the guests around.
We were sad leaving this place, and would recommend it to anybody!
Great deal. Great place. Fantastic people. Lots of complementary services like laundry, drinks etc. If you want more than just an amazing and cheap accommodation, but also people who want to help you enjoy Saigon at best, organizing tours, or taking you out in the evening and sharing time with you, that's the place to go. Highly recommended, it's better than a hotel and more friendly and personal. Plus you can't beat the location. If I am going back to Saigon, I am definitely going to stay here again.
Wonderful stay, would definitely recommend to friends and family!
Nice and clean place. Great people. A little bit pricey
Venessa and her team did everything to accommodate our needs, we felt like home in this place.
Mike was fabulous. He was waiting for us to arrive and welcomed us with a glass of cold water and lots of insightful information about Saigon. The location was amazing, smack bang in the middle of all the action but hidden down a little lane way so it was quiet and serene. The place had everything we needed and the rooms were new and fabulously cleaned. I'll be coming back for sure!
Fantastic calm space in the middle of a very busy city! The flat is part of a larger complex and one of the Air Bnb guys lives there so there is always someone on hand to help you out with anything. The room was so clean and cool and just perfect for our stay. They also recommend the best things you can do with your time in the city and we did tours for much less than I had seen advertised anywhere else!
Quang is such a friendly host! And had very great communication and professionalism! They made an exception to let us check in early because timing worked out. They came back to help us right away to clean up when we were not satisfied with cleanliness due to last tenants. 24 hour security was great and very friendly! This location is close to a lot of areas and popular destinations. The rooftop pool was exceptional! My party and I were very satisfied with this overall experience with Quang's hospitality.
We stayed at the house two nights. We decided to rent a house and not a hotel, as we travelled with a group of friends.
The house is as the pictures. Nice and comfortable and clean. Breakfast is excellent. Only inconvenience are the constructions all around. The grass was grown.
Location is very good. Meters from the beach and very easy to find a taxi to the old town.
As we arranged months before, the host arranged the pick up at the airport ( we arrived at the house around 10 pm).
When we arrived, very tiered with two infants, they informed us that the group need to separate. As the previous guest needed to stay one night more because his flight was delayed. Why he didn't go to the other house and we have to separate our group? Why he stayed at the principal house? Some questions that yet we do not understand the answer. They did not charge us this first night. However, it was not what we expected and what we arranged weeks in advance. First night we did not have proper dinner and fun with friends. We travelled with two infants. This situation was a problem for babies, and adults as well
Great family accomodation - much better than a cramped motel for 4. Clean with comfy beds and functional kitchen to prepare family meals. Light and airy with a view to the street and across the road to Caulfield Racecourse.
This is our second time back at Christina's.
As always, place was spotless clean, bed was comfortable and the apartment was bigger than expected.
We will be back again soon. Hope to visit the new place in Hoi An. Congratulations guys!
Just awesome! everything is perfect: the location, the space, the very friendly reception, the tours that are on offer etcetc!
We are not a typical Airbnb kinda couple, so honestly with HCMC we were taking a chance and we are glad we did. Christina's is located in the heart of the action, but just a little set off from the maddening crowd. The place itself is as in the photos, charming and well done. What sets the place apart though is the hosts. Again, as I mentioned we are not Airbnb types and holidays for us means quiet time by ourselves. Here we actually met other guests, the hosts themselves are young and outgoing Vietnamese, theres no pretension and there is a genuine sense of joy of having met each other that even through the rose tinted glasses of a holiday is somethings a hotel can't serve up. We also took the tours offered by Christina's and loved it. Off the beaten track, no big groups and another opportunity to meet the young and changing face of Vietnam. Special shout outs to Loc and Vinh! Great guys to hang out with if you get a chance... Thanks team Christina's! You have ruined hotels for us for a while now...
Все было просто отлично. Полностью соответствует фотографиям, ощущение, что только-только всё новое поставили. Отличные белье, полотенца, сантехника. Всё нам показали, рассказали, на карте отметили интересные места. Съездили на обзорную экскурсию по городу, которую проводят местные студенты.
Christina's staff were very friendly and helpful when we arrived. The room was exactly like the photographs. It was close to Ben thanh market and saigon square. It was easy access to local food and drinks. We enjoyed our stay at Christina's
Nice experience to stay at traditional Japanese house. Nice,helpful and clear information from Dee
Brilliant apartment close to all facilities
The folks at Christina's did it again. This is the second place that I've stayed under the expanding Christina's empire.
As per the first one I've stayed at Le Thanh Ton, it is also very clean and spacious. The room has everything and more compared to a hotel at the same price.
This room has a main room, kitchenette and a separate bedroom. The mattress and sheets are also firm and very comfortable that I did not wish to get up.
I will definitely come back again.
Trevor is a great Host, we feel very comfortable and welcome , the communication is very efficient and precise , the apartment is clean, central and have everything you need for your holiday . I wish to come back again soon. Khanh
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...
