This is a perfect hotel to stay in as a "base" while in HCMC. It's in a perfect central location amidst the hustle of the city. Close to the super busy Ben Thanh market (must see/do) and numerous shops, restaurants, and bars. Our Superior room on the 5th floor was very clean and had everything we needed. For the price you really can't go wrong. We even kept our room when we spent 2 days on the Mekong Delta since it was so cheap (so we could leave a lot of stuff there as well).
The staff here is very helpful. They suggested many places to go eat/drink, things to see, etc. No matter what time of the day/night we were coming and going they were there to greet us with smiles.
Breakfast was basic, but it was enough to keep us until mid afternoon street food snacks. A/C, fridge, and safe all worked great.
As mentioned, make sure you make it to the BenThanh market. Absolute chaos, but in a fun way. Great food stalls in there as well. As our hotel staff cautioned us, keep hold of your camera and don't flash your money around and keep your cash secure (common sense anywhere in my opinion). There's a great local bar around the corner called Universal Bar. Awesome staff, fun live bands. And for great local walk for 5 minutes to Dong Nhan. Total confusion (for us) trying to order something from this place! We were the only tourists it seemed and they didn't speak much English but we managed it was so worth it!!
No question if we return we will again use this hotel as our home base! Fantastic value, great staff, great location!!
