We stayed twice at Meraki Hotel and we were very happy with it. We stayed for one night on 3rd May on room 103, room with no window. The hotel is located in the heart of the backpackers area of Ho Chi Minh, which is really good as you will have lots of restaurants, shops and bars around. Check in...

The hotel is located at HCM's craziest and loudest street, so a big NO for light sleepers. Bearing that in mind, we had a great stay at Meraki. The room was simple but effective and with a great shower! Breakfast is small but for us it was more than enough. They'll offer you a menu with options that includes Pho,...

The hotel room was an oasis. Once in the room was restful, clean, private, I thought it would be noisy as the street is super busy 24/7 , but once in the room, I forgot about the hustle and bustle outside.

Really going to struggle to say anything positive about this hotel. I do wonder about how this can have any good reviews. Just been on a tour of Vietnam and this was by far and away the worst hotel I stayed in, I might even say it is the worst hotel anywhere that I have stayed. The staff were rude,...

....service. Terrible rooms. This is not a hotel. It is a backpackers. Don't think it is anything else. If you expect a backpackers than it won't be that bad. Plumbing sounds like a Boeing preparing for lift off all through the night. Always nice to hear when someone two floors above you decide to relieve themselves 1 o clock at...

Stayed for 3 days when we first arrived in Ho Chi Minh. We were very sleep deprived so we were thankful for the great service. When our taxi pulled up a male receptionist took our bags uo the stairs while anither held the door open. The service continues to be great. The room was big enough for two friends. Was...

...unless loud music helps you sleep. I thought if I booked a bit more expensive room I might get something well above the street. Nup.

I was lucky having the room only for a night. The room was completely different than the pictures I saw on Internet. No windows and very unsecured/unsafe door as well as very poor breakfast service. The only good thing of the hotel was in the middle of busy restaurants and pubs street.
