“It's Like Coming Back Home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

After a long day at work, all I wish was going back to my comfy home.

And this is how I feel exactly during my stay in this hotel- Feels like home.

I was staying here for a month, and they actually made me a custom made door plate with my name on it and hang on my room door front. That was rather sweet.

From comfy bed, warm greetings to sweet smiles, what else could you ask for? It is not a 5 stars grade hotel, but it is almost perfect for me in terms of warmness.

Every single staff in the hotel is like your family member. Thanks to Winner and John, who manage and inspire the staff, and constantly improve the quality of this hotel on all aspects. Special thanks to Kelly, Julia, Katherine, Nhung, Tony, David, Henry, and Ricky, and the rest of the staff. It was all of them who made this hotel special.

Somewhat I do look forward on some improvements, such as HD TV, faster internet connection, and a coffee machine would be perfect. Another suggestion: Makeup the rooftop and open it for special occasion would be nice.

Be it you are travelling alone, with friends, couple, or family, I'd strongly recommend this hotel. It's not a fancy hotel. It's a people's hotel.

It's like coming back home, indeed.

We planned to go without a plan, so we only booked only the first night of our two week vacation in Vietnam at The Little Saigon Corner boutique Hotel.
Our taxi dropped us off at the hotel at 1:00 a.m. We were greeted by the smiling faces of a lovely young woman at the desk and a young man who carried our bags for us...we were pretty rough after 30 hours of traveling so we were grateful for the welcome, the chilly AC, the hot shower and the clean comfy bed.
Our morning started with a cup of coffee on the balcony with our first view of a bustling streets of Ho chi Minh City. It was surprising how quiet our room was compared to the honks and buzz of the outdoors.
We were so happy with the staff, the room, the (delicious) breakfast and the location that we decided to tour the Mekong the next day and stayed another night in our room.
We headed out on the road after that, but made sure to finish up the last few days with a last stay at our new favorite hotel in Saigon. There was no reason to go anywhere else. Its a great value and we have no complaints.
When we came back there were beautiful roses in our room. My husband had casually mentioned on our previous stay that it was our anniversary. It was such a sweet thing to do and a perfect example of what a nice place this is to stay.
I cant say enough about the wonderful staff at this hotel. Each person we encountered was gracious, helpful and genuinely concerned with our comfort. The foods provided at breakfast were delicious and a perfect variety that made every morning a nice way to start the day.
The location is great with nice views of the city from our balcony. Its just a couple of blocks from the Ben Thanh Market, a few blocks the other way from an amazing park with so many great things to do...its a perfect location.
We feel like to arrived as strangers but left as friends when we said goodbye and headed back home. We will stay there again when we return to HCMC. It is like a little home away from home.

Room Tip: The balconies are so fun for street watching!

We stayed on the 3rd floor in a room with a balcony. Nice and spacious, and overall good value for money. We booked a customized and complicated tour through the Mekong Delta in order to go to Phu Quoc Island. Julia from the reception was extremely helpfull and patient. She stood with us for hours and called around to get us the best price for our customized tour. Very good and cheap tour! Before we reached Phu Quoc we received a call from Julia; she wanted to hear about our trip and if we were happy with it. -Amazing personal and genuine service! Thank you, Julia! :)

Firstly, I had very impression with hotel's name : Little Saigon Corner Boutique Hotel.
I was travelling around and had been staying many big hotels ago but i was lucky this time to stay in this hotel. The location is the heart of Saigon,easy to park the car there, very central to convenient for travelers to take some minutes to Ben Thanh market or other famous tourist places in Ho Chi Minh City.
I was surprised with hotel's warmly welcome as repeated guest. The bellboy is stand by in front of hotel to open the car's door for all coming guests with good attitude and quick action to take luggage as i saw. The receptionist who is Ms. Kelly was also welcoming me with nice smile to ask me about flight time, introducing to me about hotel's services and some special tours, Vietnamese restaurants as well as vegetarian food are near by their hotel upon check in.They treated me as their family's relative. The big hotels never did or treated with me like that before. Very great action.

The bedroom with double glass window to avoid the noise from busy street, nice floorboard which made by wood, it looks more warmly, tidy and cleaned. They hang some ancient pictures of old Saigon to help me is understood more about their country. Bathroom with int'l bathtub with pressing shower, full hot & cold water to massage my body well after got hard working day. I was feeling more comfortable & better health after took shower here. The corridor was spread out a grey carpet which could not make the noise from other walking guests, it is right way. But wifi was interrupted at some seconds only.
They have been serving the buffet breakfast with asia & western set to enjoy it. I preferred the hot sunny chicken eggs there, cooked after guest's order, never did before. The lady staff is always stand by in restaurant's area to waiting for your orders. The bellboy and receptionist are also to serve their guests at rush hours. All of them is ready to help their guests at anytime with friendly smiles, even including the housekeeping staff.
It was value money what i paid for.

I will be back to stay in the Little Saigon Corner Boutique Hotel at my soon business trip.
Thanks to all !

Stayed here for about 2 weeks while getting settled to live in Saigon. Staff is EXTREMELY kind and helpful. One of the receptionists, Julia, was so sweet she even went with me to translate with bankers about getting money from my account.

Rooms are really nice and comfortable, and breakfast is really good. Good A/C, and they are OK with guests in rooms.

Only complaint is that the WiFi comes and goes in rooms - can be pretty annoying.

This isn't the cheapest place to stay in Saigon, but it's definitely somewhere really comfy and welcoming. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Thanks guys!

I stayed at this hotel since it was the Vivian before, but it has completely changed under Little Saigon with all positive aspect: very attentive & friendly staff from the clean staff to bellman, room spotlessly clean and noises free as the windows have double glazed layer. Bed very comfortable with 4 clean pillows. Breakfast was adequate and always have a daily hot soup. The location was very near to ben thanh market and all tourists places . This eill be my home whenever i am here and highly recommend it to those who look for an appropriate hotel with personal caring staff in the very good location.

spent 3 nights here to explore Saigon as a base. The location is very convenient to visit Ben Tan market, Independent palace, Northe Damn cathedral, war museums, Jade pagoda...and just a walking stroll to the river. The staff is so amazing friendly and hepful. They provided all information about the tourist place with smiles and helped me to organize yours, transportation and changed the money. The room was a good size with double glazed window to block the noise from outside. Shower was strong with cold and hot water sufficiently. Breakfast on the ground floor was good and I loved the ideas of egg selection by order. Wifi was very spotty in the rooms, better in common area within lobby or restaurant. I enjoyed my stay completely here snd recommend my friends. It is a jewel in the lively city.
