Hotel is conveniently located just off the main road so the noise is not too loud. The backpacker strip is very lively and is only a 5 min walk away. Worth going for a meal and drink. A lovely park nearby and Ben Thanh market is around 15 mins walk away. Staff were very friendly and helped book our Cu... More

Stayed in the top floor of this hotel for four nights. Very quiet at night, which, from talking to other backpackers staying in nearby places, is a rarity - its down a side alley so seems to escape the traffic and party noise from the main street. Free breakfast was tasty, staff very helpful with organising tours, buses, and things... More

Nice people running this hotel.Great location as all the buses / tours leave from across the street and the “pub street” is around the corner - our fav place to eat was a street barbecue which will be one of the first places you walk past when on this street. We went back three nights in a row. The hotel... More

Stayed in this hotel a couple of weeks ago and no complaints from us. The room was spotlessly clean and the beds comfortable. The breakfast was fine and all you need. The airport pickup was arranged for a competitive price and the location to restaurants and shopping perfect, this was absolute value for money. Stairs are a chore (4th floor)... More

Staff were helpful and friendly - helped us with directions, taxi to airport, always had a smile. Private pick up/drop off to airport $25 U.S. return. Prob not cheapest option, but we arrived late evening, left early, so I think very good value for money for us. Room a reasonable size and made up everyday. The bed was very comfortable... More

We booked five months ahead and specifically asked for a room on the lower floors as my wife has.a bad foot. When we arrived we were given a room on the fifth floor - the highest floor and of course no lift. Not one word of apology and they even had the cheek to tell us they keep the rooms... More

Pretty typical hotel for the area. We stayed in 201. It was clean enough. Fridge and air conditioning where both nice and cold. The industrial fan was a bit noisey but very effective. The bathroom was the narrowest I have ever seen and definitely a one person at a time experience. The towels were so thin you can see through... More

Budget hotel, but the service was excellent. Stayed for 3 nights and the only complaint I had was the teenagers in the next room making noise well after midnight. Rooms are clean, Wifi works and the breakfast was good. The hotel staff will help you with any request. They arrange pickups and even call your next hotel and book rooms... More

It was our family's first time to travel to Ho Chi Minh so we did a little research to find a perfect hotel to stay in. Perfect, in a sense that, it would be affordable, convenient, and clean. One of the hotels that keep popping up in the top-rated ones is the Ngoc Linh Hotel, so we decided to try... More

We (family of 4) stayed at Ngoc Linh Hotel in Ho Chi MInh on our final two days of our 4 week trip to Vietnam. Ngoc Linh Hotel is simple, budget and clean, and dare I say it....has comfortable beds. Although, what really makes this hotel is the exceptional staff, who were kind and sincere. The location is in the... More
