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.

Wow this is really beautiful boutique hotel. I really do like decoration of the lobby as a library and nice photos of Vietnamese living life style. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

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

Everything was good, but what impressed me the most was the food served on the top floor. Oh, the lime juice is really good. The hamburger with mushroom and bacon was great as well. Go to the Alcove Library Hotel when going to Vietnam.

We spent three lovely nights at this stylish hotel with our baby. The room was well appointed with a king size bed and still had room for a cot. Breakfast at the restaurant was basic but adequate but they need to work on their coffee. The staff were super friendly and accommodating with nothing too hard. The hotel is about... More

Boutique hotels can sometimes be less than expected but this one was definitely more than expected. The cleanliness, comfort, service, design, and rooftop restaurant were all better than expected. Great value for the price! Will be back again.
