“What a find!”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Spent 7 weeks here with my partner whilst we completed the CELTA course nearby, so if some of the text is familiar that's why!

No, the rooms aren't huge and the location can be a bit noisy, but you're in District 1 HCMC so don't expect big open spaces and silence!

The location is great, with easy access to anything you could need, plus the added benefit of being a bit back from the main drag.

Our stay included Tet and although the guest house was officially closed, we were given keys and allowed to stay on, this was much appreciated.

If you have a bit of a wander round the maze of back alleys there's a host of shortcuts to Bui Vien, the park and numerous others. Any further directions or anything else at all just ask Vy, she even gave us some pointers for our onward journey to Dalat. Whilst on that subject, unlike many other places in Vietnam you don't constantly get harassed to book trips through the guesthouse either, although Vy does have some preferential rates so if you fancy a tour have a word first!

Thank you very much to Vy, your family and obviously Kevin for making it such a wonderful stay!!! We both passed our course with above average grades too!

We've recommended Vy as we've headed north to everyone heading south, so book ahead in case we've filled the place!

I stayed here for just one night and wished I had pre-booked another two nights as they were all full and I had to move. Not a big deal as Vy showed me just down the alley to her cousin's guesthouse. But the room I had at her place across the
alley (run by another of her "cousins") was just recently renovated six months ago and was in great shape.
Expect to pay 18.00 a night for an upgraded room anywhere in the area. This means it has a good double bed and usually a window, though I make sure the blind is always drawn and the window securely locked, for security reasons.
For a solo traveller, this is an ideal
spot. For any more than one person, I'd find it a bit cramped. There's not a whole lot of elbow room. This is SE
Asia- after all.

We stayed in the guesthouse for two nights. The family who runs the place is very friendly and helpful. They gave us a photocopy of local area map with all interesting places marked. The room is good value for the money. It is very clean and cozy. There is everything that you need - hot shower, big bed, ac and tv. The place is located in a small, quiet alley but it is very close to all the bars and restaurants in this tourist area. There is also a park very close to the guesthouse so we enjoyed our relax time in green surroundings. I do reccomend this place and we will come back for sure.

This is a great place to stay in the middle of the city! The very friendly owner supplyed us with all relevant infirmation and was helpful at all times. The rooms are small but clean and very quiet at night (which comes as a surprise since it's just 2 minutes from the two most busting tourist & backpacker streets). We also had nice and interesting conversations with the familiy members and felt very welcome! Definitely recommended!

Room Tip: The owner will try to give you the best room anyway. We had one with a small window that couldn'...

This is the second time we stayed with Vy. The room was very clean and the location is ideal, fruit and coffee was provided for free upon arrival which was nice,
The service really set this hotel apart from others we've stayed at. They let us check in early when we arrived at 7am, after a night bus. Ms Vy took out a map of HCM and immediately highlighted all the good attractions and restaurants. They always greeted our return to the hotel with a smile and conversation. But most importantly, they spent 2-3 hours with us calling the train station and various bus stations to help us book transportation. We were not the only guests having this issue, and they spent more of their time helping others as well! high season!!! No issue to stay and use the computer facilities, leave your bags after check out if taking a night bus or train.
This hotel really went above and beyond and we are so thankful for that!
