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

Things I loved about this place: 1. Location is very good. Just a few minutes away from all the nice spots such as Bu Vien street, the Ben Thanh Market, the park, etc. 2. The host arranges everything for you. He picked me up from the airport because my flight was a red eye flight (with an extra charge of... More

It is a cheap and good hotel for a group of friends or couples! The staff is very friendly (the girl was so helpful with us). The breakfast is ok! Omelet and baguette, coffee, tea or juice. Cons: there is not lift and they have a young guy lifting the baggages (6 floors I think). Try to stay near the... More

In Phan Lan, we were at the 5th floor, really tiring to climb up, hotel said we requested for a room upgrade from twin... More

This place is amazing! Clean rooms and restrooms. The staff is super helpful, friendly and polite. Free breakfast was really good too. I highly recommend it to anyone who's traveling to Ho Chi Minh :)

Great place to stay in the center of Ho Chi Minh City. The staff were particularly friendly - available 24h and always very ready to help. They organised day trips at last minute and these were all of very high quality. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Being just off Pham Ngu Lao the hostel managed to be right... More

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.

I was sad to be leaving this place, and almost wanted to take some of the staff members with me. Everyone I dealt with was super friendly and helpful, going out of their way to help you or give advice. In particular Hang on reception who is one of the loveliest people in HCMC (I miss you already Hang). From... More
