The room was nice. They let us stay an extra night (we gave them same day notice) at same day price in a different larger room. Location is only a few minutes walk from where the bus from Phnom Penh dropped us off. The man has much better English and is much more helpful than the wife (she tried her... More

This is the first guesthouse that either of us have stayed in, and we were very pleasantly surprised by how good it was. Mr. Mai and his wife were very friendly. When we arrived quite late at night, they told us we could go to our temporary room on the 5th floor then move tomorrow morning to the 1st floor... More

This is a very nice place to stay after the hustle and bustle of HCM. Everyone was so warm and welcoming. All very clean and comfortable -yes, beds a bit hard. So, if you are on a budget and want a great place to stay inHCM, look no further. I know I will be back.

The owner and his wife are really friendly and offer tidy, quiet and affordable rooms. We enjoyed our stay and the help of the owner. It is a bit of an adventure finding the house but definately worth the effort.

Clean, new facilities run by a lovely family. I first came here in 2012, spent a few weeks here, then another week at the end of the year, then a few days here and there, now I'm back for another stint.

Bedlinen was very old, it seemed clean, but unwasable marks on it. Batroom small, its ok, but the toilet so close to the wall, so maybe under 150 cm you can sit on the... More

Enjoyed my stay at Mai Guest House, mostly due to our great hosts whom made us felt very much at home. They went out of their way to assist us regarding our enquiries, and even helped us make a booking to explore the Cu Chi Tunnels. Even recommended the HEAVENLY Pho Quynh, which is just around the corner (probably a... More

I stayed at Mai Guest House when I first arrived in HCMC, and it was the ideal budget accommodation. Friendly and helpful owners, very cheap prices, free internet, clean rooms, and freezing aircon. I have seen in some of the reviews below that the stairs presented a problem, but I suspect that this had more to do with the reviewers'... More
