“Great stay @ Giang Son 2 Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2011

We stayed for 3 nights. Staffs were very friendly. Place is clean and cosy.
Location is convnient, round the corner there's a stall selling great Pho ( personally I think this is better than the Pho 2000 @ Ben Than Market) , ask the reception for direction.
Its walking distance to Ben Than Market and the Catheral, Post Office etc. So we didn't spend any on transport other than the to/fro Airport.
Food is great and very affordable, its a bustling place.
Hotel also provide quality local tour which you can book with them. No complaints. :)
We enjoyed ourselves during our trip and definitely will be back in the future.

Room Tip: There's no lifts and this building is only 4 floors, so try to get the lower floors if you think...

I was so fortunate to find the Giang Son 2 guest house located in a small lane just off the busy PNL street. The hotel is only 5 months old and is the second location for this popular place.
And I can see why. The staff (Mihn) were very kind and helpul. The owner gave us good advice on bus booking and also the train booking. He suggested the Phuong Trang bus company for our trip tp Dalat. The company is at the corner of De Tham beside the coffee place off PNL. They also will drop you off at your hotel upon arrival and pick you up if you book with them.

The hotel was excellent value and the room price included breakfast; the coffee was excellent and the jam was remarkable. I am just so happy they had a room available. Be safe and book before you arrive!

Giang Son 2 is a newer establishment a few doors down the lane but has the same owner I'm told. Despite the huge hours they seem to work the staff were very helpful, if we needed breakfast a little earlier before heading off on day trips, no problems. Minh (?) was a gem, she was always smiling and interested in making sure our stay was trouble free.
Cleanliness was excellent, rooms had air con, small fridges and large TVs so one could relax at the end of a long day then sleep well. Walking distance to parks, restaurants, travel services (if you need to be there early for a day trip) and convenience stores (one has an ANZ atm too).
Stayed 6 nights and will be back...

Room Tip: maybe try for the lower floors, one get tired of the stairs

The stay in HCMC will not be amazing if it wasn't for this guesthouse. The stuffs are so friendly and warm hearted that you feel so homely and welcomed. Information and tours are all arranged by the hotel, with many tips and advises given to make our visit there much more efficient and enjoyable. Room are very clean and the TV channels available is of wide range incl the very very important Disney Channel and Cartoon Network for my kids :) Location of the place is so strategic, you get restaurant... bars... convenient stores... pharmacy... Beauty saloon all within minutes walk. There's free WiFi in every room.. two computer terminal at the entrance for guest to use... internet speed was good (No lag in youtube streaming). Overall, I got a 5 stars treatment in a very warm and cosy guesthouse.

I wish to express my gratitude to the staffs and management of Giang Son 2 Hotel for the warm hospitality showered to me during my 4D3N stay in HCM. Your hotel is strategically located within short walking distance to great variety of food outlets, pubs, supermarts and etc. Transportation is efficient and your recommendations and arrangement to those scenic attractions are a blast! My friends and I enjoy the peace of mind as we do no have to worry about where to visit. Thanks to your efforts and sincere service attitude, all of you have left me a lasting impression on your country. I will definitely be back and I look forward to see all of you again. Thank you Thank you Thank You!

We stayed here 3 nights on the first leg of our trip in Vietnam. We were expecting craziness from this city (in a good way) so wanted a place to retreat that wasn't far away from the cities attractions.

We stayed in the cheapest room in the place ($15 a night) and it was perfect. Suuuper clean (i'm a stickler for that), right in the heart of town (we walked everywhere apart from cu chi tunnels) and yet surprisingly quiet as its on a little side road just off from the main backpacker road.

Staff were really friendly and helped us find our feet. Breakfast was egg and baguettes with butter and jam. Oh, and caught up on alot of laundry here too as it was cheap and back the same day!

Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Cheap room was everything we needed.

We needed to book a room two days in advance and we found this hotel by chance.
The owner wanted to show us a 10$ room & a 13$ room (per person), when we saw the cheaper room we immediately decided to take it,
When we came back to check-in we found out they didn't save the room for us but offered a better one for the same price. The hotel itself is very nice, the rooms are clean and got free wifi, a/c + fan and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel is also located in the heart of the backpackers area in a small quiet little ally.
The staff of the hotel is very friendly and even helped us find hotels for our other destinations.
