Reviewed 5 August 2013

Stayed in a twin room and it was nice and spacious with a good sized bathroom. Great location. You can see the markets from our room- just over the roundabout. Staff are super friendly and helpful making my first stay in Vietnam one to remember. Down the street at the intersection and to the right is a laundromat and to the left is a small store that sells everything u need. Eg. Beer, smokes and water :)
I recommend the Cu Chi Tunnels tour from the front desk. I did the half day and it was awesome. The tour guide was hilarious! Totally worth it! Bring something small for lunch as it is not provided.

Sadly a little pricy, but we winged it. I'm guessing if you book prior the price will be cheaper. It didn't bother me too much as the location and staff made up for it :)

As with everywhere I stayed in Vietnam the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was fine and the cleaning crew were friendly and funny. The gym is not good and the pool was dirty, but there was a sign stating they would clean it if you asked!

I would say it is a bit noisy here, but this was mostly due to construction work ongoing outside, which is obviously out of the hotel's control.

The breakfast was actually one of the better ones in Vietnam, it seems to be the one meal they have a real problem with! So while not up to European standards it was good enough to set you up for the day.

Overall I was happy with my stay here and would stay again

Situated in District 1 and only a short walk to Ben Thanh Market which is great. The rooms are ok but nothing special – would rate 2-3 star Australian standards. For some reason lots of mosquitoes in our room. Gym very small. Indoor pool absolutely freezing!!! Buffet breakfast included with our room was just awful – we ended up going out for Breakfast instead. Not too bad if you want somewhere to stay for a reasonable price. We were looking for somewhere more up market so moved after 2 days.

Good location. Situated in District 1 and only a short walk to Ben Thanh Market. I initially stayed here a while ago and, following a change of management/ownership decided to try it again., The rooms have been 'upgraded', however the bathrooms remained untouched and are in poor condition. Television is wall mounted with a good selection of channels, a kettle is provided although if you want an early morning coffee or tea you will need to provide your own. Swimming pool on the first floor is good for kids only. Staff are quite friendly and helpful.The restaurant on the 13th floor offers great views over Ho Chi Minh City however the breakfast food is mediocre. I found the hotel towards the upper end of expensive for the quality and there are better hotels in the area, albeit more expensive.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors (above floor 9) are quite quiet.

Came to this hotel as a part of a G-adventure tour.

For the price of this hotel, this is good value.

The hotel has a indoor swimmingpool, fitnessroom, free wifi and a restaurant. The wifi is working without no problems. Free computers in the lobby.

The location is two minutes walking from the Ben Tanh market.

The staff was okei. Not always the best knowledge of english.

The portier did try to get us to take a specific taxi all the time. Just say no and smile. He is always smiling and happy.

I was also asking for a laundry bag. They took a bag full of trash, threw the trash on the floor, and asked me to use that for laundry.

Did not try the restaurant or pool. I am sure it was okei like rest of the hotel.

I stayed here as part of a G Adventures trip and the hotel is in a great location, but it was one of the worst hotels on the trip.

The cleanliness was not the best, the room had a lot of insects, the aircon sounded like a hurricane in the Caribbean and it was useless, the room was the same temperature without it on.

The pool was filthy and I don't think it has seen a clean in months.

I have a lot of respect for hotel staff and their ability to converse in other languages but the staff at the Thien Tung were the surliest hotel staff I have ever met and claimed they couldn't understand, mmm, they could talk to me when checking out and owed mini bar money.

If you are booking in here and can cancel, do, for the same money, you can get so much better.

Room Tip: Don't do it.
