This is a small hotel (I would say 2 to 3 star). It is right in the centre of everything. the rooms are comfortable. Stayed at the start of our holiday and returned at the end. First stay had a street room on the 7th floor (top floor). Very noisy and a bit of an extension. Asked for a rear... More

The staff at this hotel were very helpful and friendly. The room I stayed in was old but clean. After all, I am only back at the hotel during the night to shower and sleep. There was a jacuzzi in the bathroom which was great after a long tiring day. Location of the hotel is great, you can walk to... More

Stayed here several times, since the service is good and the location is excellent — it's quiet, walkable to many shopping stores, landmarks, bars and restos in District 1. It's no problem walking back in the evenings after a night-out. If you still want to party, Apocalypse bar is just 1 minute away. If you don't feel like walking, it's... More

I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. The room is small but clean with lcd tv. however the carpet is old and need to be changed. i managed to get discount for a few dollars after talking to manager in charge. Location wise, it's near to major attractions but far from Ben Thant market (15 -20 minutes by walking).... More

During out last stay they tried to sell us a more expensive room because they were full. I took our bags out to a taxi, to leave, with the staff running after me because they wanted the business. They suddenly "found" our room which really pissed me off. They did make up for being sneaky by charging us 1/2 price... More

Ok, I guess you get what you pay for. Location is good, but rooms are old, run down and in poor taste, although it seems clean. There is a plack in the room that states " no prostitutes allowed".... Just in case you wanted to bring one along, lol?!?!

Despite being a budget hotel, service was top-notch in my opinion. The girls at the front desk were extremely friendly and helpful. and so was the man at the door. We didn't expect much from the rooms, knowing that we didn't pay much for it. It was a good place to rest your head after a long day's walk exploring... More

The hotel is a 2* with a nice design. The double room includes jacuzzi which I enjoyed after 3 weeks backpacking across Vietnam. Staff is sweet and helpful. Location is also good in the heart of District 1. The highlights is the great buffet breakfast, probably the best I had in vietnam. Delicious.

If you are a backpacker or you preferred to stay in a low-cost hotel with good services and friendly staff, you can go directly to Mai Hotel if you plan to stay in Ho Chi Minh City.
