Reviewed 29 February 2012

We stayed at Madam Cuc's this Jan, and really enjoyed our stay, We had a large clean room with 2 large beds and a balcony right in a great area. We had free breakfast every day and met many people in the cummunal atmosphere in the lobby. They had a simple supper which we had a 3 times during our week there. Yes there is a Madam Cuc and she even invited us for a lunch which we ate in the kitchen on the first day of Tet. We felt the nice staff were our friends.

Room Tip: no elevator so don't get a high room u nless you are in shape.

We have been in many hotels in different countries and always trying to find a nice, not too expensive hotel or hostel and a place where is a good athmosphere - We were very lucky to find this kind of hotel in the heart of Ho Chi Minch! Staff was smiling and very helpful, specially a girl in reseption who was working day and night. She was kind and smiley to everyone and helped and remembered also small details, like as I wanted an extra towel to bathroom. This hotel is very popular, mainly young adults and some older travelers. It was very nice to come back in the evenings as we got a simple hot dinner here also as well as breakfast. We were 4 nights here and will tell to my friends that if they want to get a nice little hotel that is not expensive, come here!

Room Tip: Window not to the street is quiet.

We went to the Cuc place because it was in the Lonely Planet and it said it should be alright. The room was average, though barely any water to take a shower, more like moistening yourself a bit. Well, everything was average. And that is alright, but not if they ask 16 USD for a room, when you have very close by other average hotels which only ask 8 USD a room. True, there is some breakfast and dinner included. But even if you share the room with two, the food isn't worth the 8 USD you pay more (maybe calculated 1 USD each a day).

The tours they offer are by the way clearly way overcharged

And when checking out, if you want to pay in VND, they charge you more (21.400/USD, instead of 21.000/USD) "because, if I (the receptionist) go with the dollars to the bank, I get more dongs than the official currency exchange rate", which I personally seriously doubt; in my eyes just a cheap trick. So we insisted on paying the real rates. Which, eventually we got granted because we made clear that she was lying in front of our eyes.

After that, they didn't say us goodbye anymore.

Ow, almost forgot. In the middle of the night suddenly a guy from the reception entered our room with some other guests. They were at the wrong adress, but still be able to enter the locked room while we were sleeping.

Very friendly staff...although got a little offended when we went out for dinner instead of eating the packet noodles on offer.
Spotlessly clean room and bathroom - there were a few cockroaches in the lobby, but it was right on the main street. Did not see any upstairs in the room.
Organised travel to Siem reap - no problems at all.
Would recommend for a basic but cheap stay.

This place was great. Nothing fancy, but clean with excellent staff that speak pretty good English and know a lot about Vietnam and HCMC.

They supply breakfast, fruit and tea and coffee throughout the day and even dinner included in the price.

Phuong organized all onward travel for us so efficiently, and never failed to give each traveller some maternal advice as they walked out the door. ( watch your wallet, drive safely, etc)

Loved it

At first I was overwhelmed with the hospitality and friendly staff at Madam Cuc 164...

Room was fine, wasn't far from when i had expected. But however, you leave your key with the reception during the day while they "clean" your room. They dont clean your room- they leave you clean towels. Which would be grand if left outside. When i had first ntoiced the room was entered while we were out during the day, my wallet was left out so i immediatly counted the money that was in it to make sure it was still there. And it was, the second day, not so lucky. Its a shame because the staff seemed lovely and really gained my trust. Was pleased until my privacy and security were thrown out the window.
