I didn’t realize this at the time, but Vietnam is apparently the second biggest exporter of coffee in the world, behind only Brazil. From simple sidewalk setups to trendy coffee bars, you’ll find a cafe (or two) on nearly every block in Ho Chi Minh City. If you enjoy coffee as much as the Vietnamese do, then what better way to immerse yourself in the city’s coffee culture than to stay at a cafe? Yes, a cafe.
M2C is a small chain of upscale cafes in Saigon. Modern with well-designed interiors, it’s the type of cafe that millennials love to post on their Instagram. In fact, most of the customers there seemed to be in their 20s and 30s. One of the cafe’s branches – M2C+ Cafe along Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Street in District 3 – offers more than just cool glasses of cà phê đá. They have a handful of rooms on the building’s top floor which they rent out to travelers on AirBnB.
It may have been a little unconventional, but we had never stayed at a cafe…
