Warning: some of the pictures featured on this site don't appear to be of of the Kim 1 Hotel in HCMC. The room was small but of a good standard, and the location is excellent for anyone coming to HCMC for just a couple of days. As soon as we arrived we were given a welcome drink and asked to...

We only stayed here one night, thank goodness. The location was good but the rooms were very simplistic and outdated and it was terribly noisey all night, we got hardly any sleep. The bathroom was tiny, shower over the toilet. The staff ignored us for half an hour before checking us in and didn't help us at all or tell... More

Stayed 4 nights at the end of January. I booked this place through Expedia after a bit of research and when booking decided to pay a little extra for a larger room, higher up with a balcony noting some of the comments regarding noise. (still incredibly affordable) I organised a shuttle from the airport through Kim Hotel prior to arrival... More

I stayed in one of the upper floor rooms. It is a bit more expensive, but if you are not on an extra tight budget, it pays out to spend a few dollars extra on a better room. My room was clean, spaceous and cleaned daily. The location is just perfect! The owner and the staff were very helpful. The... More

The Kim Hotel 1 (there is a Kim Hotel 2), is situated in Bui Vien St, right in the middle of the backpacker area. The hotel is on a lane and not on the street so you are spared the noise of the taxi horns. The lane is is full of other hotels and restaurants so you don't have to... More

We reserved a room at an agreed rate of $23 a night, paying a xeposit of 200,000dong in person. When we arrived the following day we were given some garbled tale about having to give our room to someone, "but not to worry, we give you a better room, only cost $30"! Needless to say that went down like a... More

Budget rooms tend to be very small in this city and this was the case here too but the quality of the room and amenities were very good. What I particularly liked was the large in room safe which could even store a laptop. The balcony rooms did look more spacious but cost more. We stayed in a standard room.... More

Checked out numerous hotels in area and this one seemed to have best accommodations for value. Comfortable stay and the staff seemed to genuinely care. A great family atmosphere! Booked us a ride to the airport and stored our bags for free until our flight!

Quite well kept little hotel with average sized rooms. Located down a narrow alley with many similar hotels around. Bed is rock-hard. Rooms clean and comfortable with large fridge, flat screen TV, jug, safe. Small bathroom. Staff are pleasant. We were on the 6th floor which was quiet in the mornings. In the backpacker area with lots of small eating... More
