My boyfriend and I spent 3 nights here in June 2014.
We discovered bed bugs in our bed at midnight and quickly told the gentleman at reception who changed our room straight away for us. However, the new room had a faulty electricity point and when we put our key in, sparks came out and the fuse went. We then told reception again who changed us once more and we had no more issues with our new room.
The rooms themselves are basic but clean and big enough. Our beds were very comfortable and our shower always had hot water (unlike our first room which was always cold). The room is provided with a safe, hairdryer, toiletries and clean towels every day.
Breakfast is very basic and the ladies did not speak great English who served us, unlike reception who speak excellent English.
Reception gave us information about tours and a map. We booked the cu chi tunnels tour which was very interesting and we had a great tour guide called Mickey. We also went on the day trip to the Mekong delta which was just as good and worth the money! The hotel also booked us a taxi to HCMC airport for only $20.
Overall, we had a pleasant stay at this hotel. My only point that you should know is that the hotel is next door to a very loud bar. If you want to be a bit away from the noise of the backpackers area, don't stay here!
We thank all the staff for their hospitality and great service! :).
