This place was perfect for the price. I stayed there for a month last January and will stay again this coming January. The staff was great. It is on a nice quiet street with a circle k just a few doors down. Very convenient and close to the backpacker area. Gonna be happy to go back and visit!

We had a perfectly adequate stay here, close enough to everything we wanted to see but away from the backpacker hub, which, after visiting, was clearly not our scene. This was quiet, clean, cool, the staff were fine, not overtly set up for tourists, but we're always happy to find our own way, and we found the breakfast to be... More

Make sure the room has everything there's written. Nice a/c, clean rooms. No food is available. We ordered standart double room, which on booking.com was advertised as "with bathtub" but on our arrival they gave us room with shower. After long, long negotiations, they agreed to change our room to one with bathtub (without additional price), which turned out to... More

This is a fine little hotel, located near both the backpacker's area, the Ben Thanh market and the downtown area. All are within walking distance, with many restaurants to choose from. For Vietnamese food, there is a very good restaurant if you go left out the door and then walk about a block. It is the last one just before... More

I booked two rooms - the deluxe room for my parents and the family room for us (with one small kid). The deluxe one was quite OK with the very basic facility (no tea, coffee or hair dryer though). The family room is a little bit of a disappointment as it does not look like the photos at all. The... More

Unhelpful with advice, terrible food no menu just ask for what you want..?? How on Earth am I supposed to know prices and availability. Then overcharged for terrible Pho. Was not given any recommendations for good bars or restaurants in the area just told to wander around to the western area. I got completely lost not one friendly face in... More

The location of this hotel is a little bit far away from backpackers district, about 10-15 minutes by walking, still acceptable. The area is quiet and safe. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The staffs are so friendly. Even though they only have limited English abilites, they always wear smiles on their faces. Four breakfast set menues for you to... More

We spent two nights here for New Year's Eve. The location is pretty good as the hotel is within walking distance of popular city spots and attractions. Rooms were comfortable and clean, with a nice view from the upper floors. The staff was friendly and helpful. The price was fair and we were very satisfied. The only (minor) problem was... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, and they gave us a big suite on the 10th floor with a good view. Breakfast is average, and the location is a short taxi ride to the center of the city.

Nice clean hotel in a good area for price we paid. Close to local restaurants & market. Room was a little small with no window. Service was OK, but not much English spoken at all. Free WiFi in rooms.
