It is situated at a quiet street close to the main back packing street. The rooms are basic and clean, though we had some problems with a dripping AC and got to change rooms. It is very cheap and the service is excellent. The staff are very helpful and there are good options for excursions, such as Mekong delta and... More

We stayed for 2 nights. It was very clean and beautiful. The location is in the center of city and easy to find. The staff was good. But air-conditioner is not working well and they use instant pack of Pho for breakfast.

We stayed at the Saigon Zoom hotel for four nights and were so impressed. Our room was air conditioned, clean, cleaned daily and was well stocked with bottled water. But what really makes this hotel so special are the staff and it's location. As we arrived, we were met by the hotel reception. Who spoke excellent English. He helped us... More

We found it easy enough and we walked from the Sapacco bus stop after taking the... More

Booked the Saigon Mini Hotel 1 as part of a package deal on Zuji in Hong Kong. When I got to the hotel, it was the Saigon Zoom. Checking in was smooth and they let me keep my passport after recording my details. The room was much cleaner than I expected, bedding and all. There were a few issues, however--the... More

I paid just US 15 a night for a windowless but clean and comfortable room on the ground floor. The people there were friendly and the location great for the backpacker area. There were no noise problems and the WiFi worked fine. A good choice for a short, cheap stay.

This hotel is perfectly located for the backpacker area of HCMC complete with bargain meals and beers, spas and shops. It's a short walk to the rest of the cities sights. The hotel itself was clean and friendly, and had cornflakes available for breakfast (among other things) which is nice if you are getting bored of pho everyday. Beds are... More
