Is fairly cheap despite the better quality in comparison to many of the hotels/hostels my mother and I have been staying in for the past two weeks. Everything was fine with this place! Clean, and nothing weird! Except the hot water doesn't work.... we asked someone at reception for help and he came up and turned it on and said... More

Room was okay. Clean and tidy but very small. Breakfast was terrible just two eggs and a baguette. The breakfast room was hot and uncomfortable. Good location right round the corner from the Main Street. No noise which was good.

Stayed here for two nights when we first arrived in vietnam and the hotel was clean and comfortable. Was in a good location and we spent the day walking the city and taking in the sights. The staff was helpful in booking us a bus to our next destination. I think that they charged us way to much to pick... More

Hotel is in the backpacker area but is very quiet. Hotel does not have an elevator. Our room was on the fifth floor, 82 steps up. Room small but clean. Staff very nice. Breakfast is very very basic. Not one of the best breakfasts we have had. Lots of restaurants in the area.

In the middle of Saigon, and in the middle of the backpacker area, also very close to D. Bui Vien, that is rather special in the evening. Nice place with breakfast restaurant in the basement. Wifi is working but is best in the reception. Plenty of restaurants around.

Very helpful staff, great room, good breakfast. Reception staff couldn't have done more; they advised on travel arrangements, tours, taxis and shopping needs. The hotel room was spacious and well prepared, facilities comfortable/clean. Location ideal- in the middle of Pham Guc Lao and food area.

We have stayed in plenty of cheapish accommodation throughout Vietnam which I felt provided for us much better. Pros: they recommended tours and booked them for us. Did an airport pickup up (not too cheap though). Booked bus tickets. Includes decent breakfast. Cons: You have to remove your shoes, but the stairs were dirty. We found a cockroach on our... More
