Great free breakfast included with the room! Very helpful staff, and we didn't feel the need to use the pillow cases we brought from home. Very central to an area where many other tourists stay, but the guesthouse itself has a relatively low occupancy so it feels secluded.

I just returned from my third visit to this place, the first in 2008 then in 2009. After the first visit, I was in love with this place and the staff and vowed to never stay anywhere else while in Vietnam and reguarly reccommended this place to people. But during my third visit last month, I was so so so... More

Nhat Thao is a very nice guesthouse from where you can discover Ho Chi Minh City, - located in the heart of the exciting backpackersarea - including breakfast - close to the citycenter, restaurants and streetfoodplaces - in the evening it's fantastic to drink very cheap beers at the little terraces just 100 m further on the Bui Vien -...

We had a great stay at Nhat Thao Hotel. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, arranging bus tickets and tour to Cu Chi tunnels for us. When the tour operator/bus company were 5 minutes late collecting us, they phoned to check their whereabouts. Used the laundry service which was quick and good. Enjoyed the simple yet delicious free breakfast.... More

I stayed here for 5 nights and the best thing I can say about it is the unbelievably helpful staff. Unfortunately I don't remember her name, but the girl at reception helped us sort out day trips, and even went to the train station to get tickets for us. One of our group was pickpocketed, and one of the staff... More

The staff are all lovely and very helpful The price was good for a triple room however we thought the beds were way too hard for our liking. Location is on a side dead end lane so it is super quiet Out on the main street is a great range of bars, eateries and shops all within a few metres... More
