We stayed at Duc Vuong for 4 nights and it was a fantastic base to explore Ho Chi Minh from. It is in an ideal location, about a minutes walk from the start of 'backpacker' street where you can get cheap and delicious food and drinks. The atmosphere is great and there is always something to do or see; from shopping to massages or having a beer on the street side. Although our room was small it was immaculately clean and very comfortable with a/c, fridge, tv and complimentary snacks. Our window looked on to a wall which didn't really bother us as the price was good. The hotel itself is very clean and modern. The staff are the friendliest and most helpful we have met on our travels throughout Vietnam. The tour service at the entrance is completely invaluable - the staff there spoke excellent english and helped us book our transportation (flights, trains, buses) for the rest of our trip as well as day tours to the Mekong Delta and Cu Chi Tunnels. This made it very easy to see all of the essentials in a short amount of time.
We had a few criticisms: breakfast was average with it has quite a small selection. We were very disappointed that the roof terrace was under construction as we were very excited about that and were not informed at the time of booking. It also meant that the extra social things like cocktails/BBQ for guests at the weekend are not on. During the day the noise from the construction is absolutely horrendous - so if you are looking to relax in the room any time between 8am and 6pm it won't happen. Fortunately we were out all day exploring the city so this did not have much of an effect on us.
Despite all of this we were super happy with our choice of Duc Vuong and would recommend it to any traveler with a big or small budget visiting HCMC.
