Stayed for one night in a windowless room with breakfast for one person for only $17 a night direcly to the hotel (i should've bargained, but i forgot.. well 17 bucks was cheap anyway).
the room was very clean, towels (inlcuding the small ones) were clean, aircon was cool and tv has good channel selections. The bed was a double bed, bit hard but still comfy.
I am glad i chose the windowless room, cos it was practically insulated from all the chaos, and completely noiseless!!. so i slept like a baby, completely uninterupted, unlike my friend who stayed in a grander room facing the yard (and had to wake up everytime drivers honk). The other upside of staying in windowless room, they put plenty of room freshener, so my room smelt great. Though bit depressing not to be able to see anything but your room's wall.
What i love the most about this hotel is its location, 10 mins walk to benthanh market, 20 mins to water puppet show/notredame. If you plan to book tours through sinh cafe (cheapest), the travel agent is less than 1 min walk. plenty restaurants, internet cafes nearby. Highland Coffee cafe (with pc for surfing internet) is next door, vinasun taxi stop (the best taxi service in HCMC) is opposite of highland coffee. i
