We stayed 2 nights and loved the neighborhood. The hotel itself offers really great service and rooms with clean, modern styling for a great price. The library is really a nice touch. Staff were professional and friendly, spoke very good English as well.

Very stylish boutique hotel in a quiet street. Rooms are on the small side but beautifully presented and clean. Good breakfast served in the Rooftop Restaurant. The staff were very helpful and were kind enough to look after some of our bags while we went to Hoi An. The staff were perhaps a bit too formal and could smile a... More

Alcove Library Hotel is a lovely little hotel that would be great for just a night before or after leaving the airport, at a discounted price. I loved the lobby, and having such a variety of books I was able to borrow and read for my three night stay here was wonderful. The rooms, while small, were perfectly comfortable, and... More

What a hidden little gem. We loved the Alcove Library Hotel. 5 minutes from HCMC airport, but away from the hustle and bustle of HCMC. Excellent price. The service was fantastic - the hotel lovely and clean. The breakfast, although not buffet, was simply delightful. I really enjoyed this little boutique hotel and would definitely recommend it to anyone who... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to The Alcove Library Hotel, an unrivaled boutique hotel experience in the centre of Ho Chi Minh City. We opened our doors in July 2012 and are located just off Nguyen van Troi street, the main avenue connecting the Tan Son Nhat International Airport to the city centre. This prime location offers great convenience to our guests, as the airport and the city are usually only 10 to 15 minutes away by taxi, depending on traffic conditions. Nestled in a charming and quiet neighbourhood street, The Alcove Library Hotel also offers respite from the hustle and bustle of the city, and yet represents a perfect base from which to explore the excitement of Saigon.In keeping with our name, The Alcove Library Hotel offers a sanctuary of deluxe accommodations, architectural elegance and timeless style. Our rooms feature supremely comfortable beds and pillows, over 70 channels on flat screen TVs, and a range of amenities designed to cater to the needs of discerning and savvy travelers.Our hotel is meant to be enjoyed, experienced and rediscovered with each visit. We have an extensive library that offers a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction books for guests to borrow during their stay with us. High-speed wireless Internet connectivity is also available free-of-charge in guestrooms and throughout public areas. Our concierge service can also help tailor a personal itinerary, offering recommendations on places to visit. Our restaurant on our fifth floor, the Roadhouse Saigon, aims to offer the best burgers and contemporary fare in town. Guests can eat in air-conditioned comfort or enjoy the outdoor terrace overlooking neighboring rooftops. At The Alcove, a new level of hospitality in Saigon awaits you, where smiles abound, the service is gracious, your needs are anticipated, and your comfort is our top priority. ... more   less
