The price is reasonable for a very clean and well maitained hotel. Located 5 mins drive and 15 mins walk from the hotel to the famous Ban Thai Market & Saigon Square. The hotel also closely located near the infamous red lights shops.

I found this hotel to be very good in the rooms. They were clean and well appointed. Not huge, but sufficient. My view was only of a cement building side next door, but at least the traffic noise was not bad that way. My only question when registering would be the status of their construction. They are redoing the entire... More

A real nice, small,comfortable, accommodating hotel in District 1 HCMC. Close to everything and a nice restaurant as well. Rooms are smallish but comfortable and air conditioned. Staff is very helpful and I would definitely stay here again on my next visit. Over last 10 years I have probably spent about 25 nights in this hotel--2 thumbs up.

A lovely hotel in a great, central location. The staff were most helpful & the room was good. Although we had breakfast as part of our stay, the street filled up with vendors early in the morning & I got breakfast out there. I highly recommend getting up early to do this as they are usually all gone by 8am.

It always annoys me when hotels give you no warning about major renovations that are under way At present the hotel looks nothing like the website photos. The "lobby" is a small table wedged near the stairs. There is no lift on the ground floor which means carrying bags up several flights of stairs to get the one lift that... More

I used this hotel a few years ago and then it was just showing its age being decorated in a dark wood paneling style. The rooms were adequate and clean, had all the basic requirements for a great place to sleep and rest between shopping and touring. The rate AUD$35 included a basic breakfast of pastries, scrambled eggs, bacon, noodles,... More

The Air Condition was so noisy and at 7 in the morning building operations started. We talked to the manager and he said the workers will start at 9 next morning....but... More
