“Very friendly staff, clean, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

The staff here went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, arranging transport to the airport. The room was very comfortable and clean with a terrific shower. Our room looked down onto the street but it was very quiet. The location is perfect being just round the corner from bars and restaurants and walking distance to Ben Thanh Market, Notre Dame Cathedral, Rex Hotel etc. Breakfast was fresh baguettes, fruit, toast or eggs.We would definitely stay there again. It was good value for money.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a window even though it costs a little more.

No wonder Giang Son won the 2013 peoples choice award. The staff are friendly, helpful & informative. It's super clean and neat and the beds are comfortable. The location is in a little safe quiet backstreet and there are many great cafes and restaurants around this district. (District 1). Great value for money.
Thanks Ha.

Had 4 nites here very friendly and very helpful staff, they were happy to book tours and plane fares. Nothing was a bother. Room clean and tidy.this placeis right in the heart of theold town. Plenty of food, bars, cheap beers etc. Would recommend this to any of my friends.Rates I thought were great for 2 people. Free breakfast thrown in to start your day.

Room Tip: rooms at the back are quieter

We were overbooked in another hotel and ended up here, no problem!! It was very nice, the rooms clean, breakfast good. They helped my brother with his lost luggage without question. So, recommending this place!

We ended up staying here for almost a month and a half whilst searching for an apartment, we couldn't have picked a nicer place. The rooms are clean and well kept, the breakfast (included) in the morning is great with a choice of:

Fried eggs and baguettes
bolied eggs and baguettes
butter and jam and baguettes
coffee
tea
complimentary orange juice (freshly squeezed)

the staff are truly lovely and friendly and really can't help you enough, we didn't take advantage of this enough. Have a question about Ho Chi Minh? Ask the staff! Need to know what a reasonable price is to rent a scooter for the day? Ask the staff!

If I ever need a hotel in ho Chi Minh again. I will certainly come here.
