Not worth the money as removations are still under way. Drilling etc starts at 7am.. Not the most relaxing way to wake up! Location is great though. Staff seems quite ok and i had no problems as a guy bringing a local girl i met to stay with me.

Supermarket, convenience store within a stones throw. Good bahn mi and good Japanese restaurant opposite (Mi Ramen Hokkaido Ramen). Very good location. Near the back packers street and the Ben thanh market. Easily accessible. Taxis aplenty. They also recommend tours to cu chi tunnel and Mekong delta at reasonable prices and can be booked just the night before. There is...

Renovations are taking place at present making for some minor inconveniences. (just some dust and a bit of noise during the day) Room was much better last time. No breakfast available at the moment, but plenty of options for great food nearby. Hungry Pig is great for Western food if you prefer. Rooms are clean and comfortable with air conditioning....

So we asked the price of renting a motorbike and it would be $10 USD, we found one for way cheaper than that, so we went with the cheaper option. We had it all day & was able to park it in front of the hotel (free) as we thought we would be able to do until the next day....

The room smells very stale because of the moist on the wall in de room and bathroom. The sheets also felt a bit damp. In the morning the staff was very loud. Not a pleasant hotel. A few positive aspects: the bed was pretty good, and there wasn't much noise from the street (the window faces a wall)

Definitely the poorest quality room I've said in in Vietnam. Not sure how it's rated so highly! My boyfriend and I stayed here towards the end of our trip and we're looking for a cheap private room in Saigon. At £12 per night this was cheap but very low quality. All the other rooms we've stayed in on the trip...

Nicely located, not a walking distance but War Museum at 28, Vo Van Tan is fairly close. Walked the distance, seeing a local produce market and Vietnamese in their daily work. The hotel is at the centre of the town, in front of 24/7 coffee shops & markets. Saigon, as locals still call the city, never sleeps. Who says that...

Hien and Wendy at the front desk provide an incredible experience. Very helpful, accomodating and friendly! The welcome was great, they assisted us in booking a tour and they were always ready to assist and make us feel comfortable. Super convenient location and very comfortable rooms. Great value for money.
