I travel to Vietnam frequently and always go back to Nam Long hotel. It is clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. They have helped me rent cheap motorbikes, get pizza after 12pm and had no problems with my plans changing to stay longer or shorter. The staff are always willing to help people and all the reception staff... More

This hotel was a disaster from start to finish. The staff are fully unprofessional and seriously unhelpful. The room was short of beds (we were a group of 6), the mattresses were dreadful, stained, and slightly damp. For 6 backpackers, floor space was a serious commodity. 6 backpacking teenagers are hard to fit in a confined space not to mention... More

The most expensive place I stayed in during my whole Vietnam trip. Paid $30 for a stuffy triple room. We found dead cockroaches on the floor and after a night out returned to find a bat on one of our beds. Woke up the nightwatchmen with a photo of said bat who proceeded to laugh and fall back to sleep.... More

The worst hotel I stayed in during my visit to Vietnam. The rooms are filthy, and nothing works in the bathroom. They charged us $30 for a room. Other hotels like the one next door charges $15 for a similar room, much better value. The breakfast is inedible and the staff are rude and spend all their time on the... More

We booked for two nights, after discovering how bad the place was we negotiated a discount for the second day. On checking out they refused to give discount, police were nearly called when one of us went behind the counter to get passports. Rooms are extremely basic, ok if that's what you want at a premium price. We stayed in... More

For $18 a night it was ok. The room wasn't the cleanest but not filthy and it did have a/c, hot water, cable TV, and a refrigerator as well as a elevator as it is a 7 story building and at least for me the location was great. The staff were friendly and helpful.

I booked and paid for two nights through Hotels.com. I arrived late and only stayed the second night. In the morning, knowing I was in a rush to get to my international flight, the attendant insisted that Hotels.com is only a booking service and that I had to pay him cash for both nights. Of course I was charged by... More

Having arrived in Saigon at 2200hrs on 4th march 2014 we'd had a long day and just wanted to harbour up I'm reasonable comfort but staying within budget. The reception area seemed clean and tidy so we bit the bullet and booked in. The beds were rock hard but I can deal with that no problem. Then upon entering the... More

First off, the location is great. It's on an alley between Pham Ngu Lau (big street with many hotels and restaurants, across from the park and where all the big bus companies pick-up) and a street that connects to Bui Vien, *the* street for eating and drinking at night, but the alley is quiet. The hotel staff are friendly and... More
