We spent 2 nights in Ho Chi Minh City and knew we wanted to be down near the bars/restaurants /backpacker area and as such came across this hotel which suited us perfectly. Our room was on the 3rd floor and faced on to the busy Bui Vien street, however the double glazing was so good we hardly heard a thing and slept really well on both nights. The room was clean and the bathroom fine although the shower hose leaked. Breakfast was okay but its better if you are at breakfast when it is not too busy, as the service was a little slow. The bread rolls were lovely and you can only have one drink so we took some water up on the second day. There was a young girl on reception who was friendly and helpful and recommended a good place to get some Pho (noodle soup) which was a few minutes walk around the corner - we tried it and it was excellent and really cheap. If you are looking for somewhere right in the middle of things at a reasonable price then I would recommend this hotel. 7/11 just across the road too which was handy.
