“Bespoke service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Hotel booked due to its proximity to the railway station but what a delight. The deceptively plain facade did not prepare us for such a surprising interior. From the moment we stepped in the door and met Phu (owner manager) she investigated the non-arrival of our expected train tickets and a successful outcome ensued. She welcomed us to her terraced restaurant that evening and cooked us a wonderful meal. We were aware of her reputation from previous reviews but that did not prepare us for the exceptional service we received.

The lady who runs the hotel is a wonderful help for all of your needs, genuine and lovely.
The hotel is between the airport and the main city centre in a lovely local neighbourhood which is great to see HCMC go about its business. The street food around the hotel is also amazing and very cheap and the locals are always friendly (bowl of soup and 4 beers for $4 :)

Hotel is well equipped with everything you need.

The owner lady really looked after us, she is a wonderful host.

Our room was spacious, air con was already set for our arrival, which was very nice to entering a cool room. We have ate few times at the restaurant in the hotel, it was delicious and loved the fresh juices. Everything was for a very reasonable price. Enjoyed sitting on the massive balcony.

We choose this hotel because the location, we weren't disappointed, loved it. It is not in the touristy area, it is surrounded by locals only. We went for a walk in the evenings and it was safe. There is a 24/7 shop which was convenient, also locals selling fruits, veges, fish etc on the street, nice to see how their everyday life goes by.

We used Vinasun taxi to get in to the centre, it cost 50.000 and another day 80.000VND, depends where you want to go, and around 140000VND to get to the airport.

I would definitely recommend this place!!

Phu is an amazing host as other reviews have stated. The rooms are large and comfortable and the rooftop terrace is also very nice. It is maybe a 10 minute drive from most of the places you'll want to go, but I really enjoyed staying in a local neighborhood and sampling all of the great food available at my doorstep. It's also perfectly safe to walk around this neighborhood at night.

The nicest place I stayed during a 2 week bicycle trip in Vietnam! It is out of the craziness and expense of District 1 , yet only 5 minutes away. The owner has one on one contact with each guest and the staff is extremely helpful! The hotel is located in a true neighborhood, so a guest can experience a daily Ho Chi Minh City routine! One of the best memories of the entire trip!

Living in Cambodia full-time we went on a weekend trip to HCMC without booking any hotel.
As soon as we arrived at Minh Chau we knew we had made a good decision. The owner/manager speaks perfect English, is very helpful & gives you that warm homely feeling of being fully taken care of!
Would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting HCMC on a budget. For first timers to the city you will find at Minh Chau a very helpful guide for a stress-free trip.

Minh Chau Hotel is in a good location for train access, not far from the airport & in a quiet street with an easy taxi ride to the main attractions. Walking around this area gives you a close experience of real life in Saigon. Breakfast/dinner in the rooftop restaurant is very pleasant. Our room faced the street & it was quiet during the night. The room was very comfortable, amenities good, cleaned daily & good wifi. The hotel owner, Phu, is a lovely lady & helped us with our plans & gave us good advice which we found invaluable as Saigon was the start of our Vietnam visit. Calling a taxi is so easy, quick call from the staff at the front desk & one turns up in no time.
