“Excellent hotel with amazing service”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

For the price the hotel is excellent. We had a twin room on the top floor. Yes there are a lot of stairs but that's the same with any small hotel in the city. Our room was small but was impeccably clean and had a fridge and big TV. Wifi was excellent and the staff were very friendly especially the woman in the evening. We were able to have a shower downstairs before taking a night bus which was great. Breakfast choice is limited but good and freshly cooked. The staff speak very good English and will book any tours or transport at a good price. I highly recommend it!

It was a great place to stay, generally. Its location is best for backpackers and those who want to explore the streets.

One thing I did not like was the room. I expected a lot more from the extra premium I paid for the "windows" to get a view of the city at night. Sadly, all I got was a view of the neighboring hotel's wall.

Other than that, the service was great and the speak really good English. :)

Bich Duyen was the best hotel we had in Vietnam. The staff are incredibly friendly, they speak REALLY good English and are very helpful. The rooms were spacious, bright, and impeccably clean. Definitely lives up to its reputation, I highly recommend it!

Staff were friendly, but there's building works going on so the floors are quite dusty, rooms are clean, showers nice and powerful but there's no safe in the room. Good location. No lift and we were on the 5th floor! Hotel would keep our bags safe until evening flight but we had to pay 200 vnd so we could have a shower before our flight. Other hotels let us have one for free before flights/ night trains/ night buses

I have just finished my one week vacation in Saigon and I stayed in this hotel for a good 7 days. Located off the main street inside an alley, the noise of the busy backpackers street is literally muffled out, making the hotel room an excellent resting place within one of the most hectic areas of Saigon.

The highlight of the hotel is the excellent service. All the staff are extremely friendly and helpful during my stay there. They can recommend places to visit, dine and also help with arranging tours on the fly. They are also kind enough to advise against pick-pockets in the area. Granted, i did have my camera nicked by a cab driver, it was due to my own careless-ness more than anything else.

The breakfast is also very good and can be selected off the menu containing 6 set choices. On the side are bananas to fuel the traveler's hectic schedule. I especially enjoyed the Banh Mi (baguette) with the scrambled eggs. Very generous serving (and re-fill) is given each time it is requested for.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a very nice place to stay in Saigon and would not hesitate to stay again at this hotel if I happen to be in Saigon in future.

We spent 5 nights here. The service is very friendly and the the rooms are good. Breakfast is quite adequate and prepared to order.

Of note: if you get a window room at the back you will have a very tiny window looking out on a sliver, literally about 3 feet wide, of an opening between two buildings. Try to get a window room at the front where you will have a much larger window looking out on the street.

Room Tip: Get a front window room.

We arrived on the wee hours of the morning so we had to knock on the roll-up steel gate for them to open us because the front desk officer was sleeping. He wasn't happy to welcome us though. The hotel is very clean. The linens are spotless. The egg and baguettes breakfast was simple but taste really good. They don't have an elevator and the stairs are steep so it's very difficult to go up and down with your luggage in tow. I got more than what I expected considering their very low and affordable rate.
