My wife is Vietnamese, she got her purse robbed just when getting out of the taxi just in front of the alley which leads to the hotel at 11.30pm. The robber ran in front of the hotel, she shouted for help in Vietnamese but the night shift receptionist did not even care to look at her and continued discussing with another customer. Quite lame...
Saigon is dangerous even for Vietnamese people so take care of your belongings and stay on the look out.
However the rooms are good for the price. Ours had no hot water but the weather is so hot that I did not care.
