Vietnam Girl Friendly Hotels | Laws on Taking a Girl Back
Boss Palace Hotel, Saigon
It is possible to take girls back to your hotel in Vietnam in the majority of cases. However it’s best to stick to girl friendly hotels and make sure girls carry ID.
Even better, get your own short stay apartment on AirBnb to avoid awkwardness.
Is it Illegal to take a Vietnam Girl to your Hotel?
No. There is no official law against it today.
The misunderstanding stems from it being illegal prior to 2000. Under the 1986 marriage and family code it was against the law for a foreigner and Vietnamese girl to cohabitate outside of marriage.
Under 2000 reforms living with a Vietnamese girl when unmarried was no longer considered a criminal act.

Police May Still Enforce It
Some Vietnam police are corrupt and there are reports of them extorting bribes from foreigners unaware of Vietnam laws. It’s a conservative country and some men don’t like to see their women with foreigners.
There are also laws on reporting your address at a long term place of residence to the police within the first 7 days. The property owner must attend and sign paperwork.
Enforcement is minimal, but there have been reports of police arriving at expats’ houses that didn’t report their address. That adds to the misconception that it’s illegal to live with a Vietnamese girlfriend.

Prostitution is Illegal
Some hotels may still refuse overnight guests that didn’t check in with you on the grounds of preventing prostitution. Some will have ‘no prostitutes’ signs up.
In rare cases hotels will not even allow a guest you check in with (unless married) to avoid having to guess who is or isn’t a prostitute. I’ve seen signs stating:
‘Required at check in: Proof of marriage required for a guest who is not a Vietnamese citizen to share a room with a Vietnamese citizen’.
So in those hotels it’s defacto illegal to bring a Viet girl back – the hotel creates its own law to be on the safe side, taking advantage of the urban myth.

Police occasionally raid hotels to crack down on prostitution, and hotels don’t want to face charges.
Budget Hotels Lock the Doors
Some cheap Vietnam hotels lock the doors after about midnight. Similar to Laos.
Then you have to bang on the door for the guard to let you in who may or may not wake up, and if he does will be pissed off when he sees you with the third girl that week.
All this should let you know to stick to girl friendly hotels in Vietnam even though the law is on your side. At the hotels below all you have to do is show the girls ID as you walk in with her then it’s fine.
Sometimes unmanned reception
There are many girl friendly hotels in Saigon but these are my top 3 because they all have their own special massage parlors in the building 🙂
You can just get in the lift and minutes later a cute Vietnamese girl has her hands (and mouth in one of them) around your cock.
All are in centrally located in District 1 with double beds, wifi, aircon, hot showers and doors open all hours.
Boss Palace Hotel
Nothing in the T&Cs preventing guests – zoomed pic
This is the one with blowjobs. I’ll write more about that in a separate post but Boss Palace hotel is certainly girl friendly because you can request in-room massages if you’re staying there, instead of using the massage rooms. A girl gets sent to your hotel suite.
As for freelancers or dating site girls you bring home they don’t care about that either.
They might not even say anything if they’re feeling lazy or the reception staff aren’t at the desk. The whole hotel is basically a front for the dodgy massages.
It’s also a reasonably nice hotel, a 3 star, about $35/night. Don’t go to Boss Hotel 1 or 2, it’s Boss Palace or ‘Khách sạn Boss’ is the Viet name.

Aerobics in the park across from Vien Dong Hotel
Nicer than Boss Palace and better located, Vien Dong is a 4 star, about $45/night. You can walk to Bui Vien backpacker street just 300m around the corner and it’s opposite central park where chicks hang out.
The massage parlor inside this hotel (2nd floor) only does handjobs. You can’t request one to your hotel room but there are much more girls and hotter.
There’s also a fitness centre.
Bed at Vien Dong
The lifts up to the rooms are positioned before reception, one time I walked in with a girl unnoticed with my VietnamCupid girl, the next time they saw me but it just took a second to hand over her ID then it was fine. So Vien Dong is girl friendly.
Room at Dai Nam
A bit older hotel but quite large rooms with balcony. Again girl friendly and has a massage parlor inside. You can’t request one to your hotel room. Dai Nam is a 3 star, about $30/night.
I got a wechat freelancer here, I didn’t have to go down and show her ID she came right up and knocked on my door. Then walked past reception unmolested once, then another time I had to show the girls ID then it was fine.
View from Dai Nam balcony
Sometimes in the daytime a side door is open to go straight past reception.
Like Vien Dong it has more girls than Boss Palace and nicer decor. But only Boss Palace does blowjobs and decor might not matter to you.
Best Girl Friendly Hotel in Saigon
Coffee shop attached to Dai Nam lobby
Overall my favorite girl friendly hotel in Saigon is Vien Dong because it’s the most luxurious and best located with the nicest sauna/steam/massage and hot girls, although the lack of blowjobs is a shame. But Boss Palace is not far away to visit.
In fact Vien Dong is in the middle between Boss Palace and Dai Nam so use that as a base and visit all three.
If you’re not into hookers and only meeting dating site girls who’ll be shy of hotels, rent a short stay apartment on Airbnb.
I wrote about a Saigon Airbnb apartment I stayed in here.
Vietnam Hotels That Aren’t Girl Friendly
A reader recently email in to say Novotel Saigon told him ‘no visitors after 10pm by Vietnam law’. WTF?
You can only have guests, male or female, before 10pm (and leave their ID with the desk).
