My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights (two girls in our mid 20's). It was in the heart of it all. we wanted two nights on backpacker alley, and that's what we got! Backpacker alley is extremely loud, but we could not hear any of this once we had gone to bed. The rooms were clean and comfortable... More

Fine budget hotel in the backpacker district. The room was a fairly small size but fine for our needs. Air conditioning worked well but was noisy. The noise from the corridor was very loud with the staff moving through the hotel. Great view from the dining room on the top floor. Breakfast was average at best. Staff were very friendly... More

The room I booked was surprisingly tiny so I didn't really like it. Plus the hotel staff going up and down noisily along the stairs which was next to my room.About the... More

This is of course an inexpensive crash pad. If you're looking for a basic hotel in backpacker haven and don't mind blaring club music, look no further. Nice and helpful staff, computers in the lobby for guests to use, conveniently located in the midst of many eateries, motorcycle rentals, bars, and the ubiquitous Circle K's that seem to sprout from...

Stayed here for 4 days with a group of 9 friends. We had 2 quadruple rooms and a double room, and all rooms came with its own bathroom, a refrigerator, a safety box and toiletries. Rooms were cleaned and towels were changed daily. Bathrooms were clean, and hot water and pressure were good too. A small TV with a few... More

I stayed here last year and decided to stay again on my return to Saigon. Wouldn't return again. Noise was a HUGE issue. The hotel is next to a club and in our room it certainly felt like we were on the dance floor till 4am. Neither, myself nor my partner had a decent sleep during our stay. The hotel... More

My friends and I were staying in Saigon for 2 nights and looking for a centrally located, inexpensive hotel to stay in. The Saigon Mini Hotel (now renamed Bizu Business Hotel) is very well located in District 1 on Pham Ngu Lao, a vibrant street bustling with an endless row of bars, clubs, restaurants, shops, hawkers and more…making it a...

We stayed there in Feb. 2013 for 8 nights. We never had one issue. They even kept our luggage for us while we went on an overnight Mekong delta tour in the middle of our stay. we felt completely at ease, were always met with smiling faces. The security guys always opened the door for us, and even taxi doors... More
