The manager tried to fob us off with a room we hadn't booked. Tried to make amends and lies continued. Never had such terrible service! The room itself was clean enough, air con very loud as was the street outside.

We stayed here for 3 nights. Our room was spotlessly clean, the air con was nice and quiet and the bed really comfy. All the staff were polite and friendly. There was always someone on the front door, ready to open it for us and to say hello. We were on the 5th floor and the room overlooked the street.... More

We booked in advance a VIP room, because we arrived in the late evening in Ho-Chi-Minh city. The hotel is located in the center (district 1), so that you can reach nearly everything (museums, markets, restaurants, party ...) by feet within minutes. We stayed 2 nights in a big, nice and clean room with window, AC, minibar, safety box and... More

Be aware of the hotel passing off lower rooms as higher ones. Booked 2 VIP rooms, on arrival was told they had overbooked and they had only 1 VIP room and one lower standard room. I insisted on having 2 rooms as I booked and after going away for 5 minutes was told she had two VIP rooms. We left... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Gia Vien hotel from 26.12.2014 to 27.12.2014. Naturally, I had compared and researched hotel options months ahead - yet, the both of us were surprised by this hotel in a most pleasant way. It's kind of like a true 4 star hotel experience within a backpacker area of the city. The state of the... More

I booked this hotel via your website and when I arrived I got moved to another hotel. I figured it was New Years Eve and it was over booked. The hotel I was moved to was a 10 minute walk away in a less centrally located part of the city and was only a 2 star hotel. On top of... More

Overall staying experience was good and definitely will recommend it to relatives and friends traveling to Ho Chi Minh. Bui Vien street and Ben Thanh Market are within short walking distance. Notre Dame Cathedral, Diamond Plaza and Vincom centre are reachable if you are traveling on foot(however this takes time anyway).Staffs are friendly and helpful. The breakfast is simple but... More

This is one of those little gems where you would return again and again. The rooms are clean, modern and great value. Close to shops, restaurants, transport and a lovely park. Staff are friendly and helpful. We loved Gia Vien and would recommend it. Breakfast was basic but acceptable.

We didn't expected much and booked VIP room just for 2 nights in Ho Chi Min. We've got nothing to complain about - clean, bright, service was very good. The street outside the hotel is noisy. Anyway I would come back!

The hotel is very nice and the staff are very friendly. Because I arrived late the first night, I don't think they had a clean room ready so they gave me a room that seemed clean but the sheets were not changed and there was used soap in the bathroom. They told me the next morning someone would come clean... More
