“Good Value -- Get Three Stars for the Price of Two”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2009

This is a two-star hotel, but I felt I was in a three-star one. The staff were friendly and honest. You have to be fast if you even want to tip! The breakfast was the best hotel-breakfast I had in Vietnam.

We found this hotel to be in a great central city location, about 10 minutes drive and 30-40 minutes walk from the back packer area. It was clean and very nice compared with a lot of other places we stayed at whilst in Vietnam. Breakfast was not special and most of the staff had limited English, but they this did not affect our stay at all. The lady working there was great and very helpful.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2009

We stayed at Hong Vy 1 for 4 nights in December after a recommendation from friends and finding some of the usual tourist hotels full. We enjoyed the experience. Breakfasts were interesting and the food varied and plentiful leaning towards the non Western which we enjoyed. Airport pickup was efficient and staff at all times were friendly and kind. We walked into the city and sights each day and appreciated not being in a busy tourist location but having easy access to everything. It was pleasant to watch locals exercising in the large park across the road each morning.

  • Liked — Local experience, location, friendly staff
  • Disliked — Nothing really - lack of maps

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2008

We stayed at Hong Vy 1 Hotel for four nights. Stay was generally enjoyable and hassle free. Room was a great size, clean/tidy, with good amenities. Free broadband supplied in the hotel foyer (and in your room too - if you had a laptop).
Staff were not the most attentive I'd come across in whilst in Vietnam (no maps/local info supplied on arrival, no "welcome to our hotel" information, etc) but if an actual request was asked of them, staff were helpful and polite. Also, hotel is probably not in the greatest spot in HCMC - we found ourselves walking or taxi-ing downtown every day (mind you, this was only about 15 min walk or $2 AU taxi ride). And breakfast was definately on the average side, compared to other hotel breakfasts I'd been having in Vietnam.
But despite these things - I would still recommend this hotel, due to the pricing, clean/large rooms, privacy, and (reasonable) proximity to city centre.
