My wife is Vietnamese, she got her purse robbed just when getting out of the taxi just in front of the alley which leads to the hotel at 11.30pm. The robber ran in front of the hotel, she shouted for help in Vietnamese but the night shift receptionist did not even care to look at her and continued discussing with... More

The hotel itself is well-located, although initially hard to find since you'd have to get inside a small alley from 219 Pham Ngu Lao Street. Probably looking lost, a kind man came to us and helped us find the place. Being walking distance to pick-up points of bus lines for tours such as Mekong Express makes it very convenient for...

The rooms smell very good. I had the chance to visit their 3 rooms of different standards, from no-window room to twin and double bed room with window. So, bear in mind, they might not share the same hardware appliances. But the 3 are all very practical and comfortable rooms. The location is a bit difficult to locate, but you... More

We stayed here for 4 night with an interval during our mekong delta tour. Rooms were a bit smelly and the carpet was wet due to 'i don't know what'. Beds were comfortable however and quiet, knowing the hotel is in the middle of the backpacker area. Service in the hotel is great. You could really ask everything to the... More

We book this hotel through Agoda. Value money. It 's located in the small alley of Pham Ngu Lao St. The room is really big, but does not have window. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this hotel for budget travellers. Tips: Booking Hochiminh airport transfer at Your Local Booking website is cheaper than booking at hotel.

I really liked this hotel. The staff are really friendly and helpful although only really the boss speaks English. Rooms clean and modern with free wifi. The hotel is tucked down an alley and to the right so go down the alley at number 219 and turn right. Just to make it a little harder the western name is Golden... More

I can't believe it! This place is so nice, recently renovated, staff very friendly, it's far beyond expectation, place is very quiet, high-class bathroom, AC, free wi-fi and brand new bed! For 15$ Us, you can't get a better deal in south asia at this quality level. Only issue: no windows so put an alarm if you want to wake... More
