Even though this hotel is cheap the way its presented we expected a bit more.
Firstly we booked a twin room and when we arrived it was a double, they told us they would seperate them the next day so we just dealt with it. The next day came and they didn't seperate the beds. Luckily it was quite a big bed so me and my friend didn't have to see each other.
The room overlooked the busy main road and it wasnt too noisy. The room was quite nice and clean.
We booked with them to visit the Cu Chi Tunnels. The lady told us we would be picked up at 8am from reception. At 7.30am we got a phone call telling us our bus was waiting outside for us and we had ten minutes to get ready. We quickly rushed as we were not ready and headed for the lobby, the man on reception had no clue and wasnt the one who called us. At 8.25am we finally got picked up along with another guest so god knows why someone rang us to tell us we were late. This wasn't the only phonecall of the stay. The next day reception rang us at 11.30 asking when we were checking out, even though checkout is at 12 and we were literally on our way downstairs we felt like they couldn't wait to be rid of us.
Breakfast is in the hotel next door and on the 10th floor. Bit of a weird layout.
