We stayed here for the first couple of nights after our arrival HCMC and found it to be clean and tidy with friendly staff. The location was ideal as it was right in the middle of the backpacking area although this did mean it was quite noisy at night but that's the price of being centrally located. Overall I felt...

The location of this place is perfect for the price if (and only if) you're planning on going out each night. Otherwise, stay elsewhere. The rooms are fine (despite not having a window) and clean, and the staff are friendly...but...there's a nightclub next door that you may as well be in with how loud the music is in your room....

Overall this hotel was quite poor but at the same time the stay suited us, we were comfortable, rooms were clean, no pests. However the aircon was not working, the fans didn't do their jobs quite well either. We stayed in a room with two bunk beds, as there were three of us we had an extra bed for all... More

the location is the best thing about this hotel. it is just few blocks away from where the bus passengers alight (mekong express). You don't need to ride a cab. everything you need is along the street (bui vien) from restaurants, convenience store, clubs or if you just need a chair and drink beer. We got the supreme room suite... More

Location is perfect but ask for a room higher up, we had 8th floor so wasn't as loud but bass from the bars can be heard where ever you are, room was a bit worn in places which you'd expect for the price we paid! Breakfast included is simple but same as all other hotels! Friendly staff and clean linen... More

My partner and I stayed at the hotel on and off for about a week and there is nothing negative I can say about our stay. The location is fantastic right in the middle of everything happening and not a far distance from the museums etc. On this main street there are plenty of travel agents so you can book... More

It’s worth money. The room is cheaper than other places and has got good conditions: western bathroom, airy, and has great location. Waking up in the morning and enjoying hustle life here was great for me. Enough for the short trip.

The stuff are very friendly and helpful. Its in the small lane thus not so noisy. Nice breakfast provided and not so far from airport. Easy access to museums and markets too. There is also a roadside hawker just beside the hotel, if didn't mind the hygiene, can seat down by the road side and have food there too

There is a night club right next to this hotel! The music apparently will be going on until around 4am. And is that loud that it's vibrating the tv bracket. I don't understand how this hotel has so many reviews, the rooms are nothing like the pictures they advertise and the amenities are all very old and stained. I'm pretty... More
