We felt very at home here with our needs catered for perfectly. The hosts were absolutely amazing and great to talk to. Our tours were all organised and a delicious breakfast each morning included in the cost. The only thing that let the place down was the small room and a tad out of date. Otherwise perfect location and somewhere... More

Started out with 2 nights there as a Saigon newbie and ended up extending to 4. The staff will give you straight advice, book your tours etc., but go beyond that in making phone calls for info for you, etc. They also have very good price on cold beer, water, and soft drinks in their cooler. I'd stay there again... More

This is a small hotel in a quiet street just off the backpacker streets. I can definitely recommend it to everybody. A double room is about $20. The staff are polite and very efficient and in the three weeks I couldn't have met such nice young people, from the staff at reception to the kitchen/cleaning staff...I felt very much at... More

When we arrived we were greeted warmly by staff. Within 10 minutes we had booked two tours to the chu chi tunnels and Mekong delta, along with our bus onto Cambodia. These were all arranged at a reasonable price. We were given a map and shown the best places to visit. The location is excellent and right in the centre... More

We were transfer to this hotel from our original booked as some issues with the water. It is very well located on a quite alley in HCMC. We have a room in the 5th floor. Hotel has no lift so that was a bit of a challenge. We saw positive side as was a quite room. We were given great... More

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
