Great location, most of the places of interest are located nearby. Room is spacious, with double bed, TV, aircon, fan and fridge. Toilet is equipped with bathtub and hotwater shower. Fresh towels everyday. Host was helpful to help me buy a local SIM card and book tour for Cu Chi tunnels See my blog here: http://photofreak-alvinz.blogspot.sg/2014/07/ho-chi-minh-vietnam-25-30-jul-2014.html

I stayed here 11 days, and I would definitely stay here again. Friendly family-run guesthouse, spotlessly clean, good value for money, excellent location. The family is very warm and welcoming, and very helpful. Thanks Phuong!

We stayed at Ly Loan twice over a period of a week, and without a doubt would stay on any future visits to Saigon. From the moment we walked through the door we felt so welcome by the family, and Phuong was incredibly helpful with recommendations, what prices we should be paying and tons of local info. Our room was... More

The rooms are clean and quiet with good air conditioners. The shower has good water pressure and lots of hot water. Phuong was really helpful when we arrived. She bought a SIM card for me to make sure we paid local prices, gave us directions and made us feel very welcome. Highly recommended.

We recently spent a few nights at Ly Loan in HCMC. It's located just 60 seconds walking distance from Pham Ngo street ( the main street along the backpacker's district, #1). This is a family operated guest house that was reasonably priced for the location and the accomodations. We were on the 5th floor and has a pretty good view... More

Stayed here with 5 of my friends. One of the most comfortable experiences I have ever had for a hotel/hostel/homestay. The family that lives there is extremely friendly, nice, helpful, and hospitable. They gave us advice on what to do in the city and were always warning us to be cautious with our stuff. One of us got her bag... More

My partner and I have ended up staying at Ly Loan Guesthouse for 5 nights - partly because HCMC is fantastic so extended our stay here but also because the family who run this guesthouse are absolutely lovely, helpful and accommodating. The rooms are exceptionally clean and the staff even ran up 5 stories of stairs to take our washing... More

The room was spacious with a small balcony. It was very clean, the room was tidied up everyday and the towels and trash were changed out everyday. The family was very helpful at giving us recommendations about the best cheap places to try out in the area. They were also just plain pleasant. I highly recommend it if staying in... More
