We have just stayed 3 nights in on of the Deluxe rooms which was very nice. Rooms are smaller compared to other hotels we have stayed in (one side of double bed is against the wall) but the room is clean, has everything you need and is quiet The location is excellent as near to the main sites and the restaurants. We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. There is a nice bakers a couple of doors down on the main road which we used for breakfast.

At first the alley that leads to the hotel is a bit off putting but it takes the hotel away from the main street and the alley is well lit with people always around.

My only disappointment is the fact the website offers a welcome basket of seasonal fruit, daily fresh flowers and a newspaper but this doesn't happen. I wasn't interested in the flowers or paper but would have liked the fruit. We asked at reception and was told this was an opening promotion that had finished and although I told them it was still advertised on their website we were not given any fruit and it is still on their website now even after I pointed it out to them

Dear Writer,

Many thanks for your GREAT reviews us as: nice hotel in good location and your total enjoyment with us was a big drive for us to keep on with our current track of offering the best heartfelt services from all of us.

To be honest that, welcome seasonal fruit basket was only offered during our 1st 3 month opening promotion in our Deluxe room and that was expired way back. However, our mistake is that we have not taken down this offer in our web that drive a misunderstanding for our guests. We sincerely apologize for this shortage and the corrective measurement is taken right now to avoid any misunderstanding in the coming time.

Thank you very much for your thoughtful & constructive comments and we look forward with pleasure to welcoming you & your friends back with us in the coming time.

With best regards/ John La - Manager

We stayed for three nights whilst exploring HCMC, made all the easier by the great central location, basically within walking distance of many sights and eateries.
Our room was very clean, not all that big but adequate, with a balcony looking out over the front of the hotel with a decent view of parts of the skyline. Our balcony (and most of the others) also have the air-con outside units on, so a bit of noise comes in from those overnight, though not too loud.
The breakfast at the hotel was lovely, served on the ground floor partly outside in a space that later in the day seems to be used for storing bikes. Nonetheless, the breakfast is tasty with a good choice available.
The hotel is down an alley which is a real slice of HCMC life - containing some shops, a couple of cafes, street stalls, motorbike shops, etc. One downside to this is that most days the cafe immediately opposite the hotel starts music playing out pretty loud from 6am-ish. One morning we had techno music, another morning cheesy 80's euro-pop. Still, it's all authentic I suppose!
The staff at the hotel were all friendly and helpful.
One thing that did seem expensive was the pre-paid airport transfer - basically you have the choice of pre-paying or not. Even if you pre-pay, the hotel porter walks outside with you and flags down a passing Mai Linh taxi and puts the journey on the hotel account. Our taxi driver left the meter running by chance and a quick calculation shows the pre-paid rate is quite a lot more than just taking the price on the meter.
PS. I can highly recommend the bakery a few doors down on Le Loi

Dear Writer,

Many thanks for your very thoughtful review us as the “Very good little hotel in great central location" and your completed enjoyment in both hardware & software drives us the very BIG encouragement & motivation to continuously improve our service day by day in order to make our valued guests more enjoyable & memorable while in HCMC.

Normally, if our guests arranged the see-off arrangement from our hotel to Airport by cab, the charge will be from US$ 12-15 depending on timing as we had an agreement with the Cab company, if by private car the charge will be at US$ 25 net. If you simple just waved and caught the cab, the meter price would be around US$ 10-12 if you know the road to go, if not, the price could be much...much higher as they may drive tourists around...around and around.

Thank you very much for your GREAT and constructive comments and we look forward with pleasure to welcoming you & your friends back with us in the coming time.

With best regards/ John La - Manager

We were supposed to stay 1 night only, ended up staying 4, with a trip in the delta mekong in the middle.
The first two nights were great. The hotel is in a great location, in a pocket street off Le Loi boulevard, near all the attractions.

We had a standard room on the 4th floor. While tiny, the rooms are really comfy and clean. We were proposed to change to a deluxe but decided to stay in our room with a tiny little window.

The breakfast is very good, the staff is really friendly and caring.
We came back from the Mekong Delta because I fell sick. I just wanted to get back to the cosiness of our room. I was happy I was able to rest and get better in this hotel.

Stayed at Little SG in the end of Feb, found this hotel exterior was small but the room was large. Greatly equipped room accompanying with wooden floor, Mr Manager who spoke fluent in English that helped private car for us to Cu Chi, floating village and local garden. At night, it was so busy and amazing on streets nearby but once we accessed our room, it was definitely quiet. On the final day, manager helped us private car to the airport($15) for one day. it was really worthy for value.

While the entrance down a small alley might be a little off putting on first glance, the friendly service, room cleanliness and great location make this hotel great value for money (and you realise the alleyway just adds character!). I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: Double beds only so suitable for couples rather than families.

We got our room via Booking.com. Deluxe room was brilliant, great decoration accompanying with big window. Mr John La and his team work perfectly and professionally. He helped us shuttle service and great city trip with excellent value. Also, hotel location was exceptionally perfect in area of foreigners. Just a thrown stone, we could see the Church, BenThanh Market and shopping centers. Great hotel to stay and would recommend it.

Room Tip: Deluxe room worth for value and great view

We stayed at the Little Hoi An Boutique and loved it. Little Saigon's room was very tiny....but found a humungous cockroach in the bathroom. Otherwise, it was clean, staff was friendly and breakfast was ok...not great. What I didn't like was being charged $23.00 for an airport pickup.

Bottom line...great location, great staff...everything else was mediocre.

Dear Writer,

Many thanks for your selecting our Little hotel chain in both Hoian & Saigon for your recent stay and we are pleased to know that you appreciated our GREAT location, friendly & attentive staff and most comfortable bed.

Little Saigon is just a "little" boutique one located in the hub of this bustling city offering most comfortable bed & continental breakfast and optional tours at a very affordable prices, meanwhile, our Big Brother - Little Hoian boutique hotel & Spa is the full services hotel & spa with outdoor pool, gym, massage & beauty salon, 2 bars and restaurant and of course the price is also different.

For the Airport pick up, normally the charge is at US$ 18 net with the 7 seater Innova Car before mid-night, and the surcharge of US$ 5 more for any pick up after midnight time as we have to provide meal for our driver.

Thank you very much for your thoughtful and constructive comments and we look forward with pleasure to welcoming you & your friends back with us in the future time.
