“Great staff and hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2012

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!!

Room Tip: Get a room on a higher floor with a window view

The hotel is on a main road of district 1. As a result rooms can be affected by noise at night but not badly. The hotel is only small but rooms are a good size and comfortable. The location excellent along with the staff.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel, the first was two years ago and there was no increase in the room rate. As of my first stay there the staff are very friendly and helpful. The standard rooms are small but I only need somewhere to sleep so that was no problem. The rooms are very clean with almost everything you need supplied for free. The breakfast though basic but nice. The location is great in district 1 in walking distance of everything. Lots of night action with many bars and restaurants nearby. I would most definitely stay there again and recommend it for the middle class traveller.

This is nothing beautiful about beautiful Saigon. We stayed here for one night on the last day of our trip with the flight next morning. We reached at about 11pm and we didn’t know we would be in for a shock. The room that they gave us was on the 7th floor while the lift only went uptil the 6th floor. So you get out on the 6th floor and take the stairs with the stair way as narrow and as claustrophobic as the Cu Chi tunnels. And if you are even slightly on the heavier side – be ready to get stuck between the walls.
Then we had to a web checkin since our flght was next morning but the wifi wasn’t working. Their modem had broken down in the morning and they didn’t think it was important enough to fix it till late night also.
The next morning, they refused to get me a sachet of black coffee powder in the room on the pretext that everyone was busy serving breakfast. Even though they very happily had the facility of tea/ coffee making in the room and had kept tea bags and ready mix coffee sachets (the ones with milk)....Anyways, i thought that was the lamest excuse anyone could give.
And then the worst part was the extra slow service at the breakfast table. Inspite of just 6 people at the breakfast table, it took them 20mins to get out a portion of scrambled eggs. Maybe they are not equipped enough to handle 'so many people' at the same time.
I would never recommend this place for even a night – you will get enough options in the same area and budget which would be better than this.

This is a gem of a hotel. It is right amongst it and if this is your first stop in South East Asia it will blow you away. As soon as you step out the front doors you are thrown into chaos but step back inside and you have a spotless hotel, lovely staff and sense of calm.
Hotel transferred us to and from airport in a great air conned car. They assisted us with all our questions. Breakfast was fine. Super clean hotel and such a bargain in AUD.
The laptop is handy also.
Highly recommend it.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel. It is in a great location, close to night life, restaurants and within walking distance of the markets. The rooms are small, but clean. Some rooms have no windows, I upgraded this time to a larger room with window facing the street. The traffic noise was fine and we also had a computer in our room, which was handy for checking in for our flights. The staff are extremely helpful and remembered us from last year's trip. My husband left his favourite T-shirt in the room and they have posted it home for us!! Would definately stay again.

Room Tip: The cheaper rooms are comfortable and clean but a bit small. If you want a little more room - upgr...

The room was very small but reasonably clean... hardly any walking space. There is no window in the room where you can see the streets. The toilet is small, shower area and toilet bowl are together.... In the same area. There is only one power plug in the room. They provide basics toiletries like toothbrush with toothpaste , soap and shampoo , comb and cotton bud. The area is very lively at night ,there are many pubs in this area. Massage and salon are also readily avaliable ... During breakfast, they will set up a few tables at the hotel entrance. Breakfast are make to order, no buffet style. You just ordered wat you want from the menu...
