The Hotel Yen Trang 2 first opened in September 2011 when I was staying next door at the Beautiful Saigon Hotel 3. I chose the BSH3 because of its high rating on TripAdvisor, and although enjoyed my stay for $40/night, I would definitely prefer the Hotel Yen Trang 2.
I walked next door to inquire if I could see a room and was blown away by the quality and cleanliness of the hotel. Everything is brand new and much better than the BSH3 but the prices are half at only $20USD/night!
This hotel has perfectly located in a high tourist alleyway, where hotels and restaurants line both sides ready to serve you. There is a laundry store five steps away if needed, and the hotel provides free WiFi which I utilized staying next door.
Once I saw the quality, location, and price of this new hotel I had to grab a business card and tell everyone about it on TripAdvisor! My only regret is that I didn’t take photographs for all of you to see what I’m talking about.
The rooms are small but well decorated, clean, with cable television. Rooms facing the alley are noisier but also more exciting. Rooms on the back side face a wall but are quieter, preference is up to you; I prefer the atmosphere of the alleyway.
Although there are no restaurants at this hotel, this popular alley has tons of very reasonable priced places to eat. Average meal being $3USD! The best restaurant to eat at is probably next door at the Beautiful Saigon 3 Hotel.
This is a no fuss, clean, safe, and cheap hotel. When I checked online, there was no listing of it at all. So you’ll have to just trust my word and go take some pictures to post back on TripAdvisor! This is the only place that I would stay at if I returned to Saigon.
The hotel email is the same as location #1 a few doors down, so make sure you tell them you are looking to book at the new location #2! email@example.com
Enjoy my friends!
