FIRST OF ALL... Let me start off by saying that based on my experience this place is a hostel, not a hotel. Were they to call themselves a hostel, I would probably give them 3 or 4 stars out of 5. However, since they decided to call themselves a hotel, I have no choice but to evaluate them based on... More

Hello Mr. Gonzalez We saddened that you did not enjoy your stay. 1. There are 2 remotes to the A/C in your room 301. Both of the units work. Please let our staff know if you don't know how to turn it on. 2. The room had mosquitos because it is the rainy season in Vietnam, mosquitos in HCM during... More

We stayed here for 1 week. Clean hotel with friendly staff. They cleaned our rooms every day. The owner is an American guy, so it's great to have somebody who speaks English. The hotel is located 2km from the backpackers area/touristic highlights, but taxi's are cheap and if you like walking, it isn't that far! The hotel is located near... More

The warm Vietnamese welcome that we had grown accustomed to was lacking in every way. The rooms were dirty - the floor was so greasy we slipped on it and there were hairs everywhere. The bathtub wasn't clean and the shower curtain was moldy. The curtains were dirty and although situated from a main road it was noisy. Light fittings... More

Good for the price (£12 a night). Hotel room is clean, quiet and has comfortable bed and good air con. Makes a good base if you are visiting Siagon but want to get some sleep away from the mayhem (hotel is in a quiet side street).

This is a lovely little former mansion-turned-hotel. Timmy and Sean speak perfect English, which was a huge help to us trying to figure out Saigon.
