I stayed at the Beautiful Saigon Hotel for three nights as part of one of their packages which included a couple of tours and round-trip airport transfers.
Overall, a good hotel in a good location with very helpful and friendly staff. Certainly one of the cleanest hotels you will come across in this price category. Airport pick-up was perfect--the driver was waiting for me upon my arrival. Breakfast was good as well.
A few things should be mentioned, though. The first night I was put in a room on the L level, which was rather small and without a window. The bathroom was also a bit odd, as you could have taken a shower while sitting on the toilet. As I had booked a deluxe room, I was a little disappointed by the room. The following two nights I got a room on a higher floor which was very nice. I would make sure to specify a room with a window.
The hotel is in a great location with a lot of restaurants, etc, but be aware that it is the backpacker area. The main business and (upscale) shopping area is in a different part of town. Overall, this is a very nice hotel, but still a bit of a backpacker place. If you are seeking a business hotel, this might not be it. English skills of staff were also surprisingly poor.
Lastly, as with many Asian hotels, the beds are extremely firm (hard, actually), so sleeping comfortably can be an issue.
But overall, a very pleasant place to stay. As long as you are aware of what you are getting, this is an excellent choice. And the price is hard to beat.
