“Great rooms and location”
Reviewed 9 January 2012

When arriving at the hotel and having to navigate through the streets, I did worry that if we left we wouldn’t make our way back! But it wasn’t too bad with the map provided by the hotel. The streets are fine, there is a morning market – we had a room at the front of the hotel and the noise didn’t travel up. It was great to walk through and see the things the locals were selling.
The staff were all very friendly, ask you to take your shoes off at the front door! But it keeps the place clean as the road outside can become rather dirty at times.
We stayed in a deluxe room which was great. So spacious, very comfy bed and huge, powerful shower and all very clean. The air con did start to leak (well, pour) on our second night, so they tried to fix it, however couldn’t - so they moved us to a room upstairs on the third night as the hotel was empty which was great. We got to leave our stuff in the room downstairs – so essentially had 2 rooms which was a great help with packing to go home.
Breakfast was basic, but it was all you need to set you up to explore the city.
It’s close to some great restaurants, and the circus was in town when we were there which was just down the alley which was great. Very close to lots of tourist offices to book excursions etc.
Definitely great value for money

We booked this hotel based on recommendations on TA and we were not disappointed. Initially my friend was a bit sceptical as it is down a long alley which has strange smells as it is a morning market. However, the room is sparkling clean with the cleanest bedsheets and linen.
Good shower and a small kitchenette attached. The breakfast was decent. Helpful staff even if they couldn't speak very good English. It is very centrally located and we could walk everywhere which we enjoyed doing. People in Vietnam tend to not walk so always exaggerate the walking distance to any place but we found everything within a 30 min radius. The morning market may be overwhelming but we loved it..so quaint!

Value for money, superb service, excellent location - for our first nights stay in Vietnam it was great, clean, comfortable, hot water and I loved staying in a laneway watching people shop for their fruit, vegetables and seafood in the morning eating my breakfast - highly recommended - we travelled with our teenage daughter who felt safe and comfortable here.

This is a great hotel close to the backpacker area in HCMC. It is at most a 25min walk to the major sites in Vietnam and really close to a load of tour companies if you want to book different trips.
The rooms are nice, clean and basic. The staff are really friendly, the breakfast options are good and wireless pretty reliable.

On the down side you have to walk up lots of stairs to get to your room depending on room floor and there are no safes in the room, but the people at reception can put your belongings in the safe they have there.

Overall it is a great hotel, clearly don't expect 5 star, but for the money I have no complaints!

Tip: pay $15 for an airport pickup booked through the hotel - it can be difficult to find at first as it is down an alley, but completely safe!

Extremely helpful
Secure building tucked away in an inner city alley very close to shopping and markets
Would stay again highly recommended
Should also mention air conditioned as Saigon is very humid

This is a nice hotel in a nice, convenient area. The staff is friendly but not overly helpful. The room is nice and clean and has a small balcony overlooking an alley. There is a nice bathroom but unfortunately the water is lukewarm in the mornings. The mini bar is nicely stocked and not overly expensive. There were ants in the room which was a downside. The bed is kind of hard but not the worst that I've ever slept on. The walls are thin but thankfully the other guests in the hotel are quiet. This hotel is a good value for the money. Just don't expect any extras. You get what you pay for. If your looking for a hotel in this price range you can't expect much. The wifi is very fast which is a bonus. And the A/C works very well. At the end of the alley there is a very good Vietnamese coffee lady and a sandwich lady. Make sure at some point you turn right out of the hotel and wander through the neighborhood. It's very nice. They also picked us up at the airport, (for a fee) which was very nice as this hotel can be difficult to find...especially late at night. We did not eat breakfast here as another couple recommended against it. But then why would you eat at a hotel when there is good food literally everywhere outside the hotel. There is an abundance of TV channels to choose from, not that we were in the room much.

We had not booked anywhere in Ho Chi Minh City and stayed here as it was the first hotel we came to as we left the bus station, it is just accross the road. The hotel is a little way down an alley which helps to keep it quiet. Our room was lovely and sparkling clean. The choice for breakfast was a bit limited, the staff were helpful and friendly and there was no problem having a shower when we left in the evening. A very nice hotel
