The hotel offers good price/quality. It is not expensive and the room was ok. Do not expect 5*: the bed sheets were a bit worn but clean, the room is not so big, the breakfast has not so much choice. However, still a good hotel in the tourist area of HCMC, in a quite little alley. Friendly staff and the... More

This hotel was our first stop on our three week honeymoon in Vietnam. Needless to say we were super impressed with what we got for approximately AUD$20. The rooms were great and came with a fridge, A/C and all the other neccessities. The service from the hotel staff was great and they always went out of their way to assist... More

Very comfortable room, GREAT A/C which was welcome in the heat and humidity of HCMC, a bit rough round the edges but meticulously clean. Basic breakfast but staff were outstanding. Very convenient location. All in all, superb value.

This was good - in a slightly gritty part of town, the hotel itself and the staff were great. Three flights of narrow stairs to walk up - not much of a view. But very comfortable and clean, and again good breakfasts. The staff always helpful.

In the madness and motor cycle mayhem of Saigon the Ngoc Linh Hotel is a very pleasant oasis of relative calm and tranquility. This is an extraordinarily well run hotel, Mr Luong (apologies if spelling incorrect) a friendly and most obliging host as are hotel family and staff generally. Located in one of the alley ways of the backpacker district... More

Saigon is a pretty mad city, especially to people who are new to south east asian travel as we were. Our receptionists gave us great advice, great service and always were very helpful and enthusiastic - we even played cards together, and he went across the street just to get me a Saigon beer which they'd run out of themselves....

Pros: The location was great. You are within 5 min walk from the central Ben Thanh Market and right around the corner from Bui Vien St which has a lot of food and drink places as well as clubs and shops. The front desk men were nice and spoke English. Breakfast that was included has only 6 options but it... More
