Reviewed 18 December 2013

I stayed here for two nights. The hotel offered great value at $15 per night for their most basic hotel room. The hotel is situated down a fairly quiet alley which is away from the main hustle and bustle of the chaotic Pham Ngu Lao but still surrounded by shops, restaurants and bars.

You ultimately get what you pay for, it may not be the cleanest hotel room you have ever seen (not saying it was dirty), but I found the room to be great value in comparison with other hotels in the area. The $15 a night rooms came with a big comfy bed, LCD flatscreen tv (complete with loads of cable channels), mini bar (with reasonably priced drinks inside), an AC unit which you can leave on whilst you go out (many have automatic systems which cut out) and a fairly decent size wet room shower with a hot powerful shower.. no window or breakfast included but what more do you want for this price! The hotel also has an elevator which is handy...

The owner/staff at front desk where always friendly and helpful and the room was cleaned daily. I would definitely consider staying here again in the future.

Room Tip: For a little extra money the rooms with a balcony look nice and spacious

This hotel is very good value compared to others in the area. It has comfy bed, lcd tv & a nice size room.. which is not easy to find in other Bui Vien hotels. I have stayed here twice & i finds Yen Trang's rate of 15-22$ most reasonable. The owner staff are friendly as always & rooms are quiet & clean. The little alley where its located has many little shops, cafes & peaceful. Yet just around the alley corner is the busy backpacker street where to enjoy cheap beers & local foods. I like that & sure am pleased with my stay in this nice tucked away hotel!:)

Located right in the middle of the action but positioned down a small alley away from the noise and bustle of Bui Vien Street. I stayed here on Tripadvisor reviews and wasn't disappointed. Greeted at reception by "Snow" she quickly organised my room(#203) I had a small room with a queen size bed for $15 a night.(No breakfast) Flat screen TV on the wall, icy cold A/cond, fast wifi, bar fridge, fancy recessed ceiling and quite modern bathroom. The double rooms run at about $18 per night. The staff are super friendly and the place has a nice secure vibe to it. For a good & cheap place to sleep in Ho Chi Minh City this place ticks all the boxes!

Great value at US$18 a night for a comfy queen size bed, air conditioning, wifi, TV and clean ensuite. There are certainly cheaper places but probably not as nice as Yen Trang. The bar fridge drink prices are cheaper than the convenience store, staff are helpful and friendly. If I return to HCMC I will stay at Yen Trang again.

Found this place by accident after staying next door at Beautiful Saigon 3. $18 here and $35-$44 at Beautiful Saigon 3. Rooms very similar except no security safe in room here and breakfast is not included - but you wouldn't expect that given the price. Extremely clean and well appointed. front desk staff are very helpful and speak good english. I have been to Sai Gon twice now and consider this road is the perfect location down a side road away from the noise but only a one minute walk to all the restaurants, bars and nightlife. Beds also very comfortable here - firm - most SE Asia beds are very hard.

We landed in Ho Chi Minh with nowhere to go, so after getting a taxi into town from the airport we were looking around at some mid to high price hotels which were very expensive. We looked around until a nice young man handed out a flyer with the hotel on it and took us into this busstling back street. They showed us in and were met by friendly staff and we then booked in 3 nights, we went in Novemeber so the prices were about $14 a night for a room. After climbing the 4 sets of stairs to our room we were welcomed witha clean en suite and 2 single beds, tv and fridge and a balcony (which was great to watch the lightining storm and rain)

This was a very nice small hotel in the city. The staff were very accomodating (especialy when our departure was brought forward by 28 hours to 4am and we found out out with 4 hours to spare and we had to leave and they reimbursed us our final night) No food, just rooms.

I would recommend this hotel for its simplicity and suitability for travellers, dont go there if you want luxury and no stairs.

we spent a couple of nights here. it has everything you could need, for $15-18 a night - they could put the rate up a few dollars and it would still be decent value. wifi, AC, fridge, comfy bed. staff are very nice, not all have fluent English but certainly enough. no breakfast but it's pretty cheap down the road. the only thing is it can be a bit loud in the morning when next door's kitchen starts up, which seems to be the norm in this part of town! try to get up a couple of floors if possible. our room did have some cigarette smell lingering which soon dissipated . you could do a lot worse for your money though!
