We stayed here during the Tet new year celebrations and we were lucky to get a place with the city being so busy. This place was nice. It's a little tucked away down a side street off the main strip but your away from all the noise and hustle and bustle. The staff are friendly and always smiling. Happy to... More

It's in the alley but only few steps away from the famous Bui Vien Street. Room is quite clean with Aircon but the space is small, the stairs are also a bit narrow. The staffs are friendly, but you have to knock the door if you come late as they will close the guesthouse. We stayed one night and had... More

This is a family owned Guest house. The staff steal with no shame. They constantly try to be double charge even after being showed the stamped and signed receipt from the previous week. Only interested in money, cheating and stealing. Avoid at all costs.

We stayed here for three nights and had a good stay. Great location and nice room. Room was a good size, with comfortable bed and pillows and thin blanket. Has both air con and fan which is great for day and night. Bathroom was fine, a little small but typical of here. We got to chat to Nico who looks... More

Be aware that you will pay two dollars more than the usual price for a doubke room in that neighbourhood. The room is very small, not very clean and in total quite shabby. The staff is very unfriendly and not welcoming. There is only one guy who speaks english, there is ome woman who shouted at us in vietnamese, she... More

Was made to take shows off outside building, which was fine, but not allowed to take our shows upstairs to our room. The door was secure however had a plastic... More

Located down an alley on Bui Bien st, next two two other Thanh hotels wasn't too hard to find. Stayed in a two bed room which was quite clean (sheets, bathroom, floor etc) and felt safe leaving bags inside. Air-con, TV and WiFi worked fine. Reasonably quiet as its off the street. Some good vendors in the alleys around too.... More

The rooms were ok, and the location was central for all backpackers. The only thing was that the staff were not helpful when trying to check in and out. We ended up getting a family room for 3 instead of a triple room and then charged more. Also, it is down an alley which at night was not so good... More

Open soap been there for god knows how long. No toilet roll and toothpaste stains from the guests before, also I would like to... More

We travelled a lot and made very good experiences with the hotel saff in Vietnam. Unfortunately the staff at Thanh Guesthouse was very unfriendly and tried to rip us off. Twice. There was a dripping tab (wet floor...) and no toilet paper. Room was too small. Do not stay there!
