We booked this hotel just one night because we arrived at Saigon airport very late, just 15' Nice staffs welcome us, clean room. Breakfast has a good choice for omelet, juice, fruits, tea/coffee and 'pho noodle' for a selection.

Just what I expected, but the staff was friendlier, the location was better, and food was much better. This isn't the Pan Pacific or the Hyatt - it's a small boutique hotel that provides a nice stay and great meals in a safe, trustworthy environment. It was perfect for being a hub as I did business in the city.

This is our 2nd visit to The Alcove due to near airport for my bf short trip in Saigon. We actually feel quite nice about hotel design at the first sight. It's modern, quiet and valued.

After 36 hours of travel we really needed a good night sleep and that's what we got. The night check in could have been quicker, but the airport pickup was friendly and the room was great!

Family and I stayed for 2 nights. The facade and lobby were beautiful - indeed many wedding photos are taken in the lobby/library area. Unfortunately the room we stayed in was the complete opposite. The room was run down with badly scratched paint and rising damp on the walls. Worse is the general wafting smell of sewerage or blocked pipes... More

We wanted somewhere overnight close to the airport but not an airport hotel.This small hotel 10/15 mins from airport fitted the bill beautifully. Rooms very well designed and comfortable. Nice terrace restaurant on the top floor for your complimentary welcome drink. Delicious cooked breakfast included. All in all deserves to do well.

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
