My partner and I stayed here for a month and, out of all the hotels I've stayed at in Asia, this one tops the list. Yes it's small and lacks some amenities of the more expensive and larger hotels, but it also gives you something those other hotels don't; personalized service, local hospitality - without sacrificing safety, cleanliness, and comfort....

Many of the posts have said about how friendly the staff were? Maybe we met them on a bad week. The 2 reception staff do try to help you but don't have a lot of English, and yes I know it's not an English speaking country, so it was very difficult to understand them. The manager is just plain rude.... More

Stayed here almost everytime im in this city (if they have vacancy lol). Rooms are cosy and toilets are clean. The only downside is the walk to the hotel from the main road but hey it's saigon. Better be away from the roads to avoid the noise from the traffic eh. Also staffs are friendly. Never had more friendlier staffs... More

Once we've found it the staff was very friendly and attentive. The location is acually really good and its nice thats its located in a small backstreet so you dont have... More

Tucked away down an alley, so nice and quiet. Staff very helpful. Helped us to get train tickets, suggested cheap places to eat, and where to change money. Room was comfortable. Bathroom nice and clean. The location is good, right in district 1 . It's excellent value for money. We enjoyed the breakfast.

While not over-the-top luxurious, the staff and hotel offer you everything you need for a very pleasant stay! The Vietnamese breakfast option is delicious! The hotel is also well situated with easy access to most major attractions as well as dining options, both in the backpackers area and away from it...

The lobby staff are very friendly and there's always a doorman. The rooms are basic and clean. The location is great, about 5 minute walk to the main markets, the back packers area, the travel agents. About 15 minute walk to the Reunification Palace. The breakfast is a bit limited and although the hotel is a central location you have... More
