Stayed there two nights after arriving from Phnom Penh at late night time. Got a deal of USD20 a night on 7th floor as walk-in. Room is reasonably cleaned, flat screen tv, ac and ensuite bathroom, I think it is reasonable. The location is in a street where highway buses departure point to the whole country and neighbouring Cambodia. It... More

A pretty fancy hotel with a funny Indochinese decor. The location is nice, next to the main tourist streets, without hearing any noise on the 5th floor. The rooms are pretty clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. I guess there are cheaper options, but this is an safe choice for a reasonable budget.

I have stayed at the Mai Phai 5 or 6 times over the last 6 years of visiting Vietnam. It is usually my first and or last stop when in Saigon. The staff is friendly and helpful and I find the price to be reasonable and the location is ideal in the Pham Ngu Lao District.

One of the best hotels we stayed in during our time travelling in Asia. The rooms were good value for what you got, TV, Fridge, hot showers and comfortable beds. In a good central location not far from the main streets and central market. Staff are friendly and offer helpful service.

I really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Very nice rooms and clean bathrooms. Great location and good service. Breakfast included and very nice. I think it was absolutely worth the price of 18$/night! They also have an elevator which was nice

We stayed here for $18 a night but the hotels bad exchange rate meant we actually paid $19 a night. The rooms are nice, ours was small but had a good bathroom with a full size bath. There is a fridge and tv in the room and they are really well looked after and cleaned daily. The pillows are crazily... More

We had read about this in lonely planer and agreed to try it out. Staff were extremely friendly, rooms were very clean, nice furnished and quite spacy. The hotel is right in the middle of the backpacker area with plenty of restaurants, bars, shops etc. close by. All in all a cool place to stay with good value for money.
