Rooms are a good size and fairly clean. Staff are very friendly and helpful, willing to give lots of advice and help book onwards travel. Lots of good places to eat nearby. We had a ground floor room and didn't find noise to be too much of a problem. For the price a good stay!

I stayed here for two nights, and apart from having no windows or natural light, and smelling like smoke (non-smoking room) the room itself was ok. Unfortunately for myself and other guests a young vietnamese guest decided to host a debaucherous party on the floor above with loud music and female 'guests' he had paid to join him. - This...

Put this hotel into context. It is not the Hilton but you are not paying Hilton prices. If you bear that in mind this hotel is a five star hotel at its own level - ie a budget hotel. The rooms were clean and cleaned daily, they were spacious with good air conditioning. The location is very good. If you... More

The Elegant Inn is right near restaurants & bars etc & easy walking distance to district 1 attractions, so its well located. Found the staff to be friendly without being super helpful, but all in all we were happy enough to stay here. Would probably look at a different hotel if we get back to HCMC some day.

We stayed here for 4 nights just before the Tet holiday began. The hotel is in a great position just off the main area where there are travel agents, bars, restaurant, shops and in walking distance to the benh thanh market. You can easily walk to most of the sights too. The breakfast you order the night before and there... More

We booked 4 nights at elegant inn. Its a great location, only a few blocks from buses to/from Cambodia and other Veitnam destinations. Our room was relatively clean, and they made it up daily. Bed comfort was okay. There are nearby clubs and the beats do permeate the walls a bit, but it wasn't too bad. Wifi was slow in... More

This was a great location as you can walk around Pham Ngu Lau (backpackers) area and find lots restaurants around for you as a tourist. The room was spacious and clean, we stayed for 3 nights and on the last night we were moved to a different hotel because they had to renovate or perhaps just overbooked. They upgraded us... More

Great location right at the end of the main backpackers/ tourist road full of restaurants and travel agents with a bakery and 7/11 opposite. Room was clean and spacious, no view out of window but it let light in so we weren't too worried. Breakfast on the terrace was good value and the lady who worked there was lovely. Generally... More

We stayed here for 4 nights the staff were very helpful and friendly and it is located the road in front of the main bar street, so a good location for eating and drinking out, we had a room on the 3rd floor, which could be a little noisy but considering the location it was not that bad, the rooms...
