This beautiful hanging garden, babylon-esque towering hotel is waiting for you to slip into a seamless blend of history and modern comfort.
As you walk through the doors of The Myst Dong Khoi, you enter another time. One where jasmine-scented air cools your skin and genuine smiles make you feel at home. Hushed modern spaces provide a calm retreat, a welcome oasis in the heart of the city.
From the black-and-white photographs of well-to-do Vietnamese families to the lobby ceiling constructed with parts salvaged from the demolished Ba Son shipyard, not to mention the gigantic, hanging anchor that greets guests as they enter, the Myst Dong Khoi offers travellers a window into the soul of ‘old Saigon’. Boasting exposed ceilings and peppered with countless curios, the Myst’s corridors are designed to replicate the city’s network of bustling backstreets and alleyways, while cut-and-paste room numbers are replaced with vintage house number plaques.

The Myst’s 108-room hotel overflows with style, great design, and sophistication, awash with unusual finds and classic details. Every nook and cranny of this Vietnamese hotel really does tell a story. Luxury knows no bounds and the Myst Dong Khoi Hotel offers a sensorial stay, with eclectic and vintage design focusing on art and history.
There is a new hotel in the heart of Saigon that is unique. It is called “The Myst Dong Khoi,” and what makes it unique is that it demonstrates that I would call a “trans-contemporary approach to heritage.” There are different ways to “maintain” heritage sites. Some are maintained in their original conditions through what we can call the “preservation” or “conservation” of heritage.
From the moment you escape the bustle of the street, you know you are somewhere special. The broad reception area sits under a ceiling constructed from materials reclaimed from the old Saigon shipyards. Ancient roof tiles, iron beams and metal grills make the ceiling a work of art in itself. However, in a very modern touch, you don't go to reception … it comes to you. A tray with a cooling towel, rose water and crystallised ginger arrives at the sofa you have been allocated, just before a guest services operator comes to check you in.
Located in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City, the Myst Dong Khoi stands out as a peculiarity at first. Its irregular façade with oddly shaped and unevenly spaced windows creates a contrast against the emerging skyline composed of the nearby highrises. It is behind this exterior, however, that the hotel’s full story is unveiled in its most complete form. A depository of memories and a showcase of local artisanship at once, the Myst puts a contemporary spin on local traditions, evoking nostalgia through its bold design.
As part of the focus of the 9th Engaging With Vietnam conference on tourism, development, sustainability, and heritage, we visited The Myst Dong Khoi,
a new boutique hotel that incorporates materials from the Ba Son Shipyard and seeks to capture a feel of the past, and held a conversation with the hotel owners and architect.
Opened less than a year and a half ago, The Myst Dong Khoi (6-8 Ho Huan Nghiep, D1) has made a name for itself as a design-minded boutique hotel. There is no shortage of luxury hotels in District 1, but none fuse old colonial charm, Saigon’s ipseity and modern luxuries the way The Myst does. People choose the place they stay during travel based on neighborhood/ location, local experience, or just the view and amenities. It is safe to say that The Myst offers it all.

The design is modern, elegant but also has an old vintage charm to it. Full of lush green plants surrounding the building is what makes it stand out. I loved the boutique feel of the hotel and the moment you walk through the doors you are welcomed by the friendly staff and a refreshing welcome drink. The hotel has various rooms, each with its own unique style. I stayed in the Serene Corner Room and loved the decoration, furniture and antique pieces around the room.
A stay at The Myst Dong Khoi places you in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City, steps from Riverside and Saigon River.Featured amenities include a business center, complimentary newspapers in the lobby, and dry cleaning/laundry services. A shuttle from the airport to the hotel is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours).
THE MYST DONG KHOI is the best boutique hotel in Ho Chi Minh City. I love boutique hotels and lucky me found this little pearl in this big city. The Myst has a spice of old Saigon in a very modern setting. From the moment you escape the busy streets of Ho Chi Minh City, you know you are somewhere very special. Design elements reclaimed from the old Saigon shipyards mixed with modern design makes The Myst the cool place to stay in this vibrant and busy city.
The entire layout of The Myst Dong Khoi is a bit different, so why would the pool be any different? Flanked by gardenia trees and other tropical plants and with a small portion shaded by the underside of the fitness nook, this is a pool that knows who it is and has the confidence to just go for it. The ultra-modern deck chairs, shaped kind of like a huge rattan teardrop, add another unique design element. The vibe here is definitely “rest and play” rather than “exercise”.

If you have visited The Nest Restaurant on the 12th floor, you probably won't forget the typical wooden boat of the Southern River culture.
From The Myst Dong Khoi, down to Vo Van Kiet boulevard days before Tet, you can meet these boats in real life at Binh Dong wharf - District 8. Multiple boats transporting a wide range of ornamental and flower plants from the Mekong Delta to HCMC have arrived here as Saigonese preparations for Lunar New Year celebration.
Located in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City's central district, The Myst Dong Khoi hotel welcomes guests to a calming oasis amidst the busy city streets.
