Very very friendly, family-run establishment. The receptionist was super-helpful and welcoming. Great location down a side-alley, right in the centre of Siagon, just next to the central park. Highly recommended.

Newer hotel in the middle of the backpacker area. Lots of hawkers pushing you to buy their trinkets all around the area. Staff was friendly and nice. Breakfast left something to be desired. Small ants were crawling all over the sugar bowl and bread. Pretty unapetizing. However, the eggs made to order were good. We booked late so we got...

The hotel is centrally located in the backpackers area in District 1. It is around 10-15 minute walk to Ben Than Market, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Central Post Office. The room which we booked thru Agoda was immaculate. The meals which was included in our booking was basic which consisted of eggs, baguettes, bananas, coffee and juice. The hotel...

When we arrived, the receptionist was pretty much asleep and wasn't able to speak clearly. A bit anemic service continued during our stay, although I guess all basic needs were covered. Breakfast which is included in the price is quite simple but good: 2-egg omelet, a bread, a cup of coffee and a banana. The location is at PNL (HCMC's...

Don't go there just because it's on Lonely Planet's top list. Made a reservation by phone. They offered to have us picked up for 15 US $ from the airport, which is way too expensive. After we arrived, we were offered a room with one bed instead of the requested room with two. As we were ready to leave and...

Like others, we booked a front room through agoda and when we were arrived we were put in a back room with no window. We were not happy, but were able to work it out with the kind front desk who put us in the room we should have had 2 days later. The front room was much nicer than...

We stayed at Giang Son 2 over New Year. Initially we were a little disappointed as we'd booked a front room (which should come with window) via agoda but when we arrived we were given a back room with no window. The room was a decent size and pleasant enough but a few little touches could have improved the rooms...

We spent two nights (18$ per night) in a double room in the Giang Son guesthouse. We made a reservation by telephone two days in advance. On the first attempt we went past the small alley the hotel is situated in, but found it on the second attempt. The staff was english-speaking and very nice and helpful. The rooms were...
