Lac Vien Hotel is located in District 1 in HCMC. This is an inexpensive hotel close to shopping, good food and nightly entertainment. The hotel is located off the busy road and is clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. If you are looking to a clean affordable hotel in HCMC try Lac Vien.

Reservation not honoured. Probably the most important thing you want as hotel to do when you turn up at 10pm at night is for them to keep your reservation. We arrived on time and they had given our room away. Absolutely the WORST thing you can do to a customer. Horrible experience !!

One of the nicest hotels we stayed in during our trip to Vietnam. The service was very good and the staff couldn't of being helpful. We arrived early and they had the room ready for us in 30 mins. It is a great location, in the middle of everything but yet not a sound in the rooms!

I walked into Lac Vien Hotel without advanced booking. The rate quoted for a Standard Room (without window) was $32, but the front desk officer offered me a discount at $28 if I stayed for 3 nights. After viewing the room, I accepted the offer. LOCATION: Conveniently located at backpackers’ area in Pham Ngu Lao, and is near to Ben... More

Hotel rate is quite cheap, with simple coffee and toast breakfast thrown in. Location, hotel is not very easy to find as it is located in a back alley. But it is near to a lot of eateries and small shops that sell lots of cheap stuff. Money changers and tour centres are also close by. Room is clean with... More
