It is right on the main street and renting a bike was easy. Bui Vien, the most famous street was 5 min walk distance so was everything else, so full star for the location. We booked through booking website for two nights at $20/night, upon reaching hotel, they had broadly highlighted/poster for same room at $15/night. We had paid $5... More

Arrived @ 3am to a nice clean room with fantastic A/C. Stayed for 2 days. Reception was nice and helpful. Great location around the corner from backpackers district. Across the street from the park. Lots of food options close by. A nice, quick breakfast was enjoyed with banh mi close by.

They have hot running water and the room was clean. A little out dated though. The workers were nice and pleasant. No free breakfast but they have good wifi. Location convenient and there is a convenient store near it and a tasty bakery. Overall good value for the hotel.

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.
