The experience in this hotel went from poor to very good overnight. We got there late at night from the tranquil Hoi An, so arriving to the backpackers area was a bit shocking, we were tired and they gave us a room in the old building, third floor, the staircase is narrow. The room itself was clean, so were the... More

Booked online. Airport pickup was small car instead of the large car we requested for four persons with a lot of luggage - we made it but it was a squeeze. We were shown the room we booked in the old building - looked worn and smelled musty. We were offered a room in the new building across the alley... More

We stayed one night in march. It was okay for the price. The rooms were well presented and everything worked. Great location with lots of eateries close. Very very good staff especially the manager who was very helpful.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights and we can not speak highly enough of it. Great location, great room and more importantly the most lovely staff you could ever wish for. We booked a great tour through them as well as airport transfers. If you're looking for somewhere to stay in HCM with great location and for... More

We had problems with crossing borders so my friends and I missed the first night of our stay in the hotel, but it was nice of them to still allow us to check-in for the second day (and they even stayed up the night before waiting for us). Enjoyed our stay even if it was only for a day, they... More

We loved staying at this hotel. It is our number 1 hotel during our 4 months travel in Vietnam. The best staff ever! Sincere and helpful, to the last detail, so competent and patient, yet easygoing and amiable. A true golden star in the jungle of hotels in Saigon! Rooms and location are also great. Couldn't recommend it enough.

The hotel is located in the backpacker area. The rooms are good, clean and air conditioned. The price is reasonable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed my stay here and recommend this hotel.
