I have stayed at the Dong Do on previous occasions (the last time early 2014 with friends) and have always found it okay with very friendly staff and in a great location in District 1. I had the Hotel booked for late May this year (5 days) but have now been told by my friends (who are staying there now)... More

Asked for extra pillows and no problem. Breakfast ample and filling. Really no complaints from first time we... More

When I booked this hotel i really thought it would be a great one. It's a good area, but when i came here the staff were unprofessional and not nice to us. Our room smelled terrible and there was only one window in the room, but it was too high and without any curtains so the next morning we woke... More

We booked here for a 2 nights as the reviews seemed good. The price is very cheap for the area but that also goes woth the service and the rooms. The room was small and very clutteres. It was as if they had tried to fit everything they had into this room. The bathroom was the same and seemed very... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night, so that I could visit a nearby restaurant with live music - as I live one hour outside HCMC. Check-in was friendly and efficient, the room was adequate, very clean and fairly well equipped, but not particularly nice. Although I had booked a double room on Agoda, I was told that there...

The Dong Do hotel has an amazing location with many local shops to walk to and gain experience from. The staff are excellent and always smiling. They have helped us with a lot of our trips to other locations and helped us avoid being over-priced with taxi drivers. They always put there clients first and were helpful throughout the month...

The Dong Do is a good clean budget hotel in the heart of district 1 in Ho Chi Minh City. It is surrounded by all the more expensive hotels, eg Sheraton, Caraville, Majestic, Continental, Hyatt etc so it great for good solid shopping if this is your thing. Although it is a budget hotel the price, $36 US for a... More

This is a rather shabby and poorly run hotel at a price that can be matched at much better nearby hotels. The rooms are average, the breakfasts mediocre, the laundry will lose some of your clothes (as it did mine) and the manager or receptionist will call the most expensive taxi in town for you and tell you that it...

This is a small tall hotel. We first got the room on 6th floor where don't have elevator and need to walk stairs with suitcase from 5th floor. The room is not big and quite difficult to place 2 small suitcases. Then the aircon and fan couldn't work properly. After some failed fixing and negociation, we changed to a 3rd... More
