Stayed here a couple of times now. Highly recommend this hotel given the location. Set back in an alley away from the loud and very late street noise of bui vien. Cheap clean rooms with breakfast included. Friendly staff. Will stay there again no doubt.

Excellent hotel! Stayed for a few nights during Summer 2014. The staff were so helpful, friendly and couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome. By the time we left, we were more like friends and will keep in touch! Rooms were clean and comfortable. Would definately stay again.

I stayed here in July 2014 with my daughters. We found the hotel to be clean and tidy and very quiet as it is tucked away down one of the many alleys. The staff and owner were very friendly and helpful and always showed concern for our safety in the big city. Breakfast was simple but more than adequate for... More

A great benefit of this hotel is its location in a small backstreet - away from the noise of District 1 in the city. Staff is very friendly and helpful, and the top-of-the-building terrace is great for breakfast. We stayed several times in 4 different rooms and we found out that they are not all equal. Some are without windows... More

We now make Ngoc Minh Hotel in District 1 in Ho Chi Min our home away from home. We are always made welcome when we visit and the staff I am sure are chosen because of their friendliness towards the guests. Staff performance and friendliness plays a big part in any hotel stay and at Ngoc Minh this is excellent... More

We spent a few nights at Ngoc Minh Hotel when we first arrived in Vietnam last July. Great hotel with very helpful and friendly staff. Tom, especially, spoke very good english and made our stay very comfortable. He suggested the best places to eat street food and we were never disappointed. The location is ideal, in the backpacker district where... More

We stayed at the Ngoc Minh Hotel on 2 separate occasions recently. Both experiences were very good. The location is peaceful in the lane behind the crazy Pham Ngu Lao. Reception staff are friendly and helpful; the rooms are spacious, clean and the air conditioning is good; a basic breakfast is provided and the open air dining area on the... More

I've stayed here before. I return mostly because of the staff friendliness and service plus great breakfast. I've lowered my ratings of this place. The toilets aren't cleaned. No cleaning products are used in the bathroom that I can tell. Gunk builds up in the corners around the shower and in the door tracks. Fingerprints and handprint stains aren't cleaned... More

Airport pick up was for $16 USD and airport drop off was for $10 USD. The hotel was located at the backpacker's district of Ho Chi Minh and adjacent to the red district street of Do Quang Dao where clubs, bars and restaurants line up the street. It is also very near Papaya and Orange - local clothing stores in... More

Great short stay at this small budget hotel. Reliable and friendly English speaking staff, Tom & Chang will go out of their way to assist and make you feel safe and welcome. Organising tours, laundry, transfers etc with efficiency. Considering the affordable price we would not hesitate to recommend this well located hotel if you are on a budget.
