Lovely place to stay - rooftop bar was fantastic and the breakfast was amazing (recommend the French toast!) The service is amazing and it's very easy to get to/from the airport here (plus ordering a taxi is also very easy, and it's not too far to District 1).

Although a bit out of the centre (but close to the airport) still a great option when visiting HCMC. The staff is very friendly, rooms are clean and prices very reasonable. Breakfast is also very nice and served on the rooftop. Recommended!

Great small hotel with a gorgeous entrance. We loved our rooms (front facing the street). We travelled with young children so just ate in at the restaurant where the food was not super cheap but very very good. Lovely friendly staff. Highly recommend a street facing room.

We stayed here based on all the good reviews. location is poor but seemed worth it for a night before we flew home based on all the good reviews. Room was cramped, the bathroom was like a cupboard and a little bit whiffy. The restaurant underwhelmed. Could not get a drink after 11 and the hotel is so remote that's... More

This is a very sharp little place, wonderful service, good breakfast included with the room. Furnished nicely, felt like a small, European hotel yet retained its distinct Vietnamese heritage. Very reasonable, too.

Just a one night stay, late arrival and early departure but well worth it due to proximity to the airport. The breakfast was in fact the best we had during our two weeks in Vietnam! One word of warning though, make sure that you take reputed taxi company from the airport who really knows where he has to go. Our... More
