Perfectly located to explore all the key sights of Saigon, the Silverland Yen is a few minutes from the Reunification Palace, the bustling Ben Thanh Market, and a number of excellent museums. The ever-reliable Silverland brand – a stalwart of Vietnamese hospitality – have created a number of charming boutique hotels across the city, and the Yen is appropriately named and styled for its address. In the quaint streets of ‘Little Japan’ the hotel is close to some wonderful ramen restaurants, Japanese bars and spas, with more traditional Vietnamese eateries also occupying the lantern-strewn alleyways.
The hotel itself has a minimalist and Zen interior, with a relaxing lobby that doubles up as the location of a complimentary afternoon tea. Guestrooms have a Japanese tinge to their decor too, with practical amenities, spacious bathrooms and comfortable beds to retire to after a day of sightseeing. On the roof is a small cocktail bar, serving up spectacular city views and evening tipples, as well as a small jacuzzi pool to enjoy your sunset cocktail from.
It’s clear why this is a favourite of ours – attentive service, enviable address, beautifully decorated and affordable – the Silverland Yen is a clear winner for those seeking a peaceful, boutique hotel within this non-stop modern metropolis.
