Hang on the front desk was extremely helpful. She's a delight. Staff are very friendly, offering water while you wait, and organising everything for me plane, transfer and hotel at next destination. Room was clean and the alley puts it away from all the street noise. Would stay there again if I come back to Ho Chi Minh.

the phan lan hotel is located right in the backpacker area. so it's easy to walk everywhere and there are plenty of restaurants and bars and shops around. the rooms are not very big but clean and nice and quiet. the staff is very friendly and the tour that i booked through the hotel was great.
