Excellent hotel for its price. Very good location - it's in city center, but the street is quiet enough. The personnel is really qualified and friendly, and it seemed they can organize and handle all problems. The breakfast is quite base, but you won't be hungry.

This hotel was the cheapest of our travel, but it was really nice. We enjoyed the service : airport pickup, very nice staff and good breakfast. The room was clean. But what is really nice : it is the calm because it is at the end of small alley. But just walk 5 minutes and you are in the middle... More

Clean, convient, comfy. This has changed and expanded since m first visit in 2008, but is still my first choice - great beds, excellent location, beatiful food near-by. this is the go-to HCMC. Bear in mind that I like just a nice, very clean, cool (AC) place to be. Not a 4-star, but very lovely. Just down the street is... More

We stayed only for one night. We had 2 beds. The other mattress was ok, but mine was very bad. The room was clean, shower had warm water. Breakfast was pretty simple. Wifi did not work on the 3rd floor. Not too far from the market place. If you are planning to take a bus to Cambodia, it's leaving just... More

It's a nice hotel in the hidden street in th center of the tourist area. In spite of the surrounding loudness, this particular street and the hotel itself are very quite. Rooms are comfortable, bathrooms are clean and the staff is very helpful. I had no problems with having breakfast early in the morning, even an hour before the kitchen... More

There's nothing extremely fancy with this hotel. It's pretty basic. But the staff was friendly and the location was great. A lot of good street food vendors around and a lot of good massage places in the area. Rooms were small, but clean and functional. My only complaints are that the wifi was glitchy in my room and it was... More
