“Madam Cuc 127 - a friendly and smile place in Saigon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Clean and with a very friendly staff, we spent our first nights in Vietnam in this hotel. You climb many steps to get to your room, but the higher the less noise. The staff helped us with all further bookings - Mekong Delta, Bus to Dalat, etc. with great efficiency. Location is very convenient, and a little off the main tourist traffic. Noise? Yes, what do you expect when you have millions of motorbikes and karaoke in every corner of this city? Ask for a room that doesn't go out to the front.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that goes to the side, not to the front.

127 was our first night in vietnam and we were satisfied with the hotel, although the breakfast was a let down and there was a very loud karaoke just across that went on till past midnight - not ideal for jet lag recovery.
However, on our last night in Vietnam, we had made a reservation for 127, same room. But they had taken the wrong date into account, and we were given the 5th floor - no elevator of course - room, in building 84, which was HORRIBLE. The bathtub had a crack and we scratched our toes, there was no wifi, no hot water, the AC hardly worked, there were no clean sheets, and not even a little soap. They agreed to bring down the price of the room admitting that the room was not what we had reserved. But when we wanted to pay, they refused our 500,000 VND bill saying it was a little bit scratched. We had nothing else to pay with given this was our last day in Vietnam. A real let down, this was the only true disappointment we had in our full 2 week stay in Vietnam. A real pity they could not live up to our expectations.

Room Tip: Make sure you see the room before signing in, and you can negotiate the rate if it is not what you e...

I have to join the general praise adressed to this establishment. If only there was such a friendly and helpful staff in every hotel (and not only in Vietnam, but also elsewhere). You really feel taken care of. The rooms are good as well, spacious enough, clean. We had a room on the 3rd floor facing the main street, but no problem with the noise, we enjoyed the view from the balcony especially during the rush hour. We did not have dinner there, as there is a lot of nice restaurants in the neighbourhood.

We had a hectic schedule in Vietnam so only stayed here one night. The experience was very good; helpful staff, friendly, smiley, clean room, good breakfast, fast wifi and good location. They helped us arrange bus tickets, no overcharging and the bus company we went with was excellent. No complaints on this place! We also arranged airport pick up, taxi driver was waiting outside even though it took for ever in migration.

Forget about fancy western hotel chains, Madam Cuc 127 is awesome!! They arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport and have a half day tour of the city. We were greeted at the front door by the staff with open arms and smiles. We have never been treated so well, and we've been travelling for 6 months. Our room was spotless, with the first floor balcony. They took lots of time to show us maps of Saigon and go over any tours we had questions about. They treated our two children like gold. The food is absolutely delicious!! Breakfast omelettes and fresh fruit and warm homemade bread. Dinner was amazing spring rolls and noodles. Across the road is a fantastic fresh smoothie joint. The other tourists here are fantastic too...some of them have never left or keep comng back!! We'll be back for sure!

Love it here!

Room Tip: First floor balcony is a great(and safe) spot to watch the crazy driving outside!

Have come to the end of a three week trip in HCMC (staying at Madame Cuc's hotel 127 Cong Quynh St). Madame Cuc herself, along with all the staff here have made this stay so memorable. Every morning the ladies greet me with a warm smile and will generously go out of their way to ensure I'm not hungry or thirsty and this happens again at dinner time. The room provided is large, quiet and very comfortable. Everyday my room including lined is changed bathroom cleaned. The young lady at the front counter (Lyly) has to be one of the kindest people I've met during my time in HCMC. She has been more than helpful in providing honest advice and organising anything needed eg train/bus tickets, airport pickup/drop off, nice places to eat (on a budget). Really all of the staff here are "terrific". I will certainly stay here again next visit to HCMC. I HIGHLY Recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: From what I have seen of other rooms and my own all are large clean rooms. If you prefer having a ba...

My wife and I have been regular visitors to Madame Cuc's excellent establishment at 127 D Cong Quynh, where we have received great efficiency and kindness from Madame Cuc and her delightful staff. The size of rooms and inclusion of a good breakfast and simple supper have been commented on before.
However, on this visit, I had the misfortune to suffer a theft from a motor cyclist, who removed vital possessions in an attack from behind. The subsequent help, sympathy and practical assistance from Madame Cuc personally and members of her staff would put larger, international establishments to shame. This report should be treated as a warning to visitors to the area, where up to one in four tourists are said to be the victims of such attacks. Nevertheless, in view of all that is to be seen in Viet Nam and the consideration of Madame Cuc and her staff, we shall not be deterred from revisiting the Country and Madame Cuc, in particular.

Room Tip: Choose a Room on the 1st or 2nd Floors at the Rear of the Building to reduce external noise
