My friend and I arrived around 3am in HCMC and they accommodated us. The room is so clean, with AC, tv and fridge. The place is near places to eat and drink but at the same time tucked in a very quiet area of Pham Ngu Lao. Value for money. The free breakfast is simple but with fruits and unlimited... More

Staff speaks English well, did our laundry for pennies and booked a Cu Chi tunnel tour for us. Right around the corner from all the bars on Bui Vien and walking distance to all of the sites in District 1. Our room was on the 2nd to top floor, looong walk up the stairs every day. Clean room, a/c and... More

Our first room was on the top floor which was about 6 stories up and no elevator so we got a bonus workout! The hotel was clean and comfortable! The air conditioner stays on when the key is taken out! An extra bonus when it is a really hot day! Also a fan in the room. They helped up find... More

We actually booked blue river hotel(right in front of it) via Agoda and we were surprised to check in at Ngoc Linh. We can't really complain because our room's nice & clean, although we were at the 5th floor so it's really a mighty climb up. Staff's really nice & I'm happy with the complementary breakfast. If you want to... More

Firstly, the hotel staff were wonderful and very helpful people. They helped us book our trips to the Mekong Delta and Cu Chi trails for a very reasonable price (can't remember exactly). It's tucked away behind the main road nestled amongst other budget hotels and massage spas and yet practically on the doorstep to Saigon's vibrant night life. The hotel... More

Great great place. Booked for 5 nights but extended my stay and will be staying here again when I return to Saigon. Super friendly staff, going out of their way to help you with everything. Nice and clean rooms, and for $20 a night you can't really complain.. highly recommended.

A decent clean hotel with attentive and helpful staff. I have nothing really negative to say about the place other than it doesn't have a lift and if you are placed as we were on -despite the floor labels- the 6th floor, it can be quite a climb and makes to-ing and fro-ing from the room a real bind. For... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights in January and it was a great base for what we wanted to do and see in Ho Chi Minh City! Great and safe location near to the main strip of restaurants and bars. Also close to various agents where you can book buses and tours etc. Walkable in 5 mins... More
