“Good for SE Asia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

There's nothing wrong with this place. It's clean, relatively well furnished, the staff is great, the AC is cold and the upstairs bar is pretty cool. The only thing is that it's a bit overpriced and you can get the same level of cleanliness and service for less at other hotels.
Don't bother with their airport pick-up unless you're willing to pay about 75% more just for the convenience of them picking you up. Same thing with getting bus tickets from the tour group downstairs, as they add quite a hefty fee to them.
Finally I'd skip their breakfast upstairs. It is good, but it you're in Vietnam, you can go get a really good breakfast on the street for about 1 USD, so why eat at the hotel?

Dear lovely guest,
Thank you for your lovely contribution and all the greatest concern to our hospitality lately. This review is now a hugest encouragement to our whole enterprise to develop more in service. That is pretty kind of you for playing a very important roll to push us into a very constantly improvement.
As mentioning on many previous reviews, our hospitality is a budget price hotel that is acceptable and included for room service, also breakfast buffet plus heaps of personal service as helping guests to guarantee the accommodation in a safe place and enjoyable. As well, there are many options for your to stay in Duc Vuong Hotel. Thus, our qualification is proven through our hospitality. Truely people could find anywhere else with cheaper price, however our uniqueness as enthusiastic staffs in their working attitude and cleanliness in room service, also sound proof rooms in advoiding the street noise that you could not find even in biger hotel opporation.
Our picking-up service is also related to the safety ensuring, plus there is one way from airport to our hotel, thus the direction will be longer as well there is transporting in a busiest city for rush hour, thus the price would be a little bit higher than normal taxi but you get warmly welcoming from arrival rather than waving for a taxi (which you could not trust from beginning) in tiring after the flight.
In fact, there is a lot of choices for your breakfast buffet in our Duc Vuong family. There are many cuisins for your choice of food, not only SE taste. Also, it is for guest's convinient that could lead to a safe morning breakfast rather than you are going to try the food that you will not believe in the quality from the street as if it is your first time in Saigon. Besides, for this buffet, you could get anything you like and pack your energy for a tour day, thus it would be adequately enough rather than $1 meal without fulfillment.
Anyway, thanks so much for your lovely suggestions. We wish you all the best and hope to see you again.

Many thanks and greatest regards,
Jade

Duc Vuong is a standard hotel with a lot going for it: friendly staff, AMAZING breakfast, great rooftop bar with affordable drinks, and a convenient location for chowing down on street food. The only downside was that the hotel was undergoing some construction - access to the roof was limited in the day and the Wooden Room we reserved was unavailable. Even given all that, we'd stay again. And after spending a few weeks travelling throughout the country, we still think this hotel's breakfast was the best we had anywhere.

Dear Annie,
Thanks a lot for your lovely review about our hospitality today. Our service is always in the ready mode. We are sorry that at the time you have been booking for DV suite on 7th floor (wooden floor with comfortable bed and nice lounge inside the room, even big window), it was on the construction. Anyway, it is completed for a few days, thus for next booking, it will be available to serve you as welcoming all the time.
Also as you could see, our family is serving guests fairly and welcoming all. Not only about service, we bring our heart into what we have made and serve, to please all the guest in highest satisfaction. It is great to hear that you love our 8th floor rooftop bar restaurant as well. We have ever stopped improving both hardware from the building to the decoration, software from staff professional skills and customer system. For your next staying, we certainly promise to serve you even better. Wish all the best to you and family.

Great greeting,
Ms Jade

We spent 3 nights at the Duc Vuong earlier this year. On our arrival we were welcomed by the very friendly Ms Eva. What a delightful young lady, and a huge asset to the business. All the staff were pleasant and helpful. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and quiet. The Rooftop Restaurant offered great meals, excellent service from Jade, and a spectacular view of Saigon city. We would highly recommend this hotel, and look forward to returning one day. Thanks Richard & Pat

Hi Richard and Pat,
It is so great to hear from you back home. Thank you for your lovely contribution and all the greatest concern to our hospitality lately. This review is now a hugest encouragement to our whole enterprise to develop more in service. That is pretty kind of you for playing a very important roll to push us into a very constantly improvement.
As we are always bringing our motto to every where in the world, we seem do it right and retain it on track. We would love to give all guests the bestest service without considering on commercial reason. Because it is hard when somebody they could travel by only themselves, sometimes they will demand accompany for just some drinks or to tell them what the next local attraction they could go for the next day.
All of the service here is always running on its right track. We have ever stopped chasing to get the higher service support. For next time, there would be upgraded, so you will get higher brilliant point of satisfaction and happier to stay with our family. We wish you and family all the best.

Cozy greeting,
Jade

The rooms are clean and spacious but have little light and no balcony. AC is not very strong.
Breakfast is served in a unpersonal room and offers a lot of warm food but no choices of bread, no cheese or anything similar. Eggs are made fresh in any variety though.
The location is alright. Quite a bit to walk to the main sights but lots of bars, restaurants in the same street.
The rooftop bar is probably also nice at daytime but it was completely under construction and only really useable at nighttime when also open to public. The prices here are higher than in most surrounding bars but staff extremely friendly.
What put us off and made us chose a different hotel for our stay after we come back from Cambodia was 1. The ridiculous prices for the trips given by the in house agency and 2. the lack of service when it comes to asking if they could post a postcard for you anytime within the next couple of days. It had stamps and was ready to go there was just no postbox near and our bus to Cambodia already waiting. After asking if they could possibly take care of it we were told that we had to take a taxi to the postoffice or give 2$ to some guy in the lobby who would then bring it to some box but from this box many letters disappear...so our choice?! We then asked the lady from the backpackers just a few houses down the road who said she would gladly do that on her way back home later. For free and with a true smile. Staff in this hotel tends to mention the hotels claim 'we are family' but we are glad we are not.

Dear Minu,
It is so grateful to hear from you. It is appreciated about your great stay and helpful contribution to give us many comments that we could completely serve in better way. However, we are so certain that there were a little detractive in this review.
The rooms in our hotel is completely base on Saigon hospitality standard. Plus, there is very closed from houses to houses in this location thus, there would be quite dangerous to get a balcony in room. We apologize for the AC problem. It was a little hotter lately when it is starting the summer, so room could be affect by the wall heat as well, not about AC.
For breakfast section, we have ever forced our guests to use breakfast in the restaurant. If you like to take it from the room, there is easy to just contact receptionist and let us know. We have also offered bread, baguette, cheese and 2 types of jams for your bread choice, there even stuff to use with toasted. However, Vietnam is not a good place to make cheese and conserve it, thus we have already given a best type of cheese which is so appropriated to guest's choice for breakfast. If your need would be different, please let us know in advance for more preparation.
The rooftop bar restaurant is absolutely stunning and bringing spectacularly great view of New Saigon with flash light from commercial buildings is fabulous at night time. Actually it was constructing day time because we were still opening night time, as well guests went out for seeing Saigon or other tours in day time. We also gave discount voucher and share to guests in advance, as well we always get acceptance from guests before they booked. Anyway, we apologize for this awkwardness. As in any hospitality in Saigon, rooftop cafe-restaurant is always opened to any people from guests to guests (inner and outer). Our price is only very reasonable and friendly to guest's purpose compare to others equal bar around the area.
Last but maybe not least, Saigon post office centre is only one located on Saigon City Center. As in Vietnam, there is nowhere you could find a post box in front the house or anywhere else, sometimes in the modern apartment only. And we could not be provided a post box by the Government. In this circumstance, we always have to use the tour service to involve in (it takes time to go to post office, as well when you get there, there will not provide you DIY service like in Europe, there will be in long procedure and you have to pay if you need to send to oversee). Thus, for a safety reason, we could not receive an important post from guests.
Anyway, we are sorry for your uncomfortable stay as there was a renovation in our hotel. We hope you would concern about those problems above and understand as a unprejudiced point of view.
Thanks again and wish you well.

Many thanks and best regards,
Jade

We stayed here at the start of our trip for 3 nights and for a further night at the end of our trip. It is very central to everything and is located on a busy street full of bars and restaurants.

The staff are very friendly and the rooms are comfy but do make sure to ask for one with a window. Breakfast is buffet style with lots of choice including spag bol one morning which was 'different'.

What really sets the place apart is the rooftop bar which is a great place to chill and have enjoy a few beers. The black pepper chicken is very nice too and worth trying.

Dear Kevin,
Thanks a millions for crossing us a lovely review on this site. There I always good service and “be right there” working attitude from our hospitality. It is grand to hear that you have been using our service in the building from hotel room service, buffet breakfast, rooftop bar restaurant.
We offer heaps of options for guest's accommodation. Thus, there will be based on your demands. Example, window rooms will be in few rooms which face to the back of hotel mostly, also they are only available when there were no bookings in advance yet. Thus, for next time, there will be an available window room is provided to you.
And it is so honor to notice your brilliant contribution, as well as your appreciation to our team work. For your next staying, we are going to support you even better as we are upgrading sound proof in every room, open it wider on the rooftop bar for more open view in many sides, as well new decoration would lead you to more comfortable stay.
We wish to see your next reservation soon. All the best!

Many regards,
Jade

Thank you for your greatest contribution and all the concerns to our hospitality lately. This review is now a hugest encouragement to our whole enterprise to develop more in service. That is pretty kind of you for playing a very important roll to push us into a very constantly improvement.
There is a renovation to put the sound proof system in every single room (it is to stop the noise from outside, even to get it away from the music on the rooftop bar), also expand the rooftop bar restaurant and redecorate for opening Cafe-Restaurant on the roof. We are totally apologize to cause the noise during your stay. However, we have also confirmed it to every guest and give vouchers for dinner or lunch to apologize for the matter.
Anyway, the renovation is now finished and we hope to serve you even better for next stay. Thanks again for your lovely contribution at Duc Vuong hotel in the time.

We have stayed in vy kahn guesthouse on a previous visit (which was also excellent) but this was a level or 2 up in what you get for your money. Check in is quick, english spoken by everyone. The room is very clean with great air con and the fastest wifi we have found in vietnam. The free breakfast is great with a lovely view and the roof top bar and restaurant has a great atmosphere overlooking the madness of the streets of saigon. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

To support guest's accommodation, we have also updated a lot of software and hardware systems. There will be sound proof in every room on 7th floor which could help guest' sleep even when we have a huge party on the rooftop. Also, there will be higher and wider View from our new expanded Rooftop after the construction.
There is also a great Grand opening party in our Rooftop soon. We hope to see you again in our Grand opening party with DJ and friendly vouchers all night.
Wish you and family well.
