“Perfectly adequate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

As we were not backpackers we might not have booked this hotel had we realised its exact location but that said it was very centrally located and a short cab ride from most of the key attractions. The room was fine, but we did face out directly on to a wall about 2 feet away which was a bit off-putting. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and arranged our bus trip ticket on the Mekong Express to Phnom Penh without any problems at all. Breakfast was OK, nothing extraordinary. Overall good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask if the room has a window and if so what kind of outlook

This hotel is really well located right in the heart of De Tham. Perfect for getting out and about in the Backpacker centre of Saigon/HCM.
THe food at the hotel is very good, lovely flavours, good value and there were always lots of non residents eating there aswell, which is usually a good sign.

Room Tip: THe higher the room the quieter it should be I think. Also, one further from the stairs will have le...

In the "backpacker" area down a little, characterful alley but surrounded by some pumping streets with bars restaurants and shops spilling out onto the pavements. The area had a real buzz.and the location could not have been better for us. The hotel was fine, if a little unremarkable and the staff were very pleasant.

They gave us a good rate at 35 dollars a night in their superior room. the place is very clean (just be prepared to climb up several floors) and the staff are very friendly.
It's a few minutes away from ben thanh market. If you dont mind walking, you can also visit the cathedral, post office etc. just ask for directions.
We had a city tour (free) you can check out Saigon Hotpot, they are a group of students, offering free tours so they can practice English language.
Really enjoyed my stay in HCM City. Will be back soon.

We stayed at Beautiful Saigon II for 3 nights at the beginning of our Vietnam holiday and the night before we flew out. We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children. Staff were friendly and helpful, on our return we were greeted like old friends.

Room and bathroom were lovely, clean and cool. We had a balcony room at the front of the hotel and it was lovely and quiet, the beds were a little hard but found that in all our travels of Vietnam. Hotel is in great central location with a good restaurant.There are plenty of other restaurant options within walking distance. I think it only took about 10 to 15 mins to walk to Ben Thanh Markets

We stayed here at the beginning of our one month trip to vietnam and after we've first booked 2 nights, we stayed another 4 nights, because of the warm and friendly staff of the hotel.

Don't get confused, there are 3 Beautiful Saigon Hotels in total very close to each other and all are under the same management. But while they just copied their websites from the first Beautiful Saigon Hotel, you find not all services in all of the three. In this hotel, there is no elevator (no space) and the windows are not "European Standard". But don't worry, because the boys will take your luagage up to the 4th floor and if your room is facing sideways, you will sure get some good sleep. But keep in mind, that Saigon is a loud and busy city and this hotel is in the centre of the tourist area, also known as backpacker area.

But what makes this hotel a really 5 star hotel: the room are absolutly clean, warm shower and bathtube (in the superior rooms), fresh towels every day (Saigon is very humid, the towels would'nt dry in the room), flatscreen TV with international channels, computer with internet in the room and wifi for free all over the place, welcome fruit basket and complimentary water, very comfortable king size bed, aircondition, breakfast included (you choose one from the menu), in-room safe...I can't stop.

The staff makes you feel like in an b&b, it's one big family and you are part of it! They care for you and help you in figure out tours (mekong, cu chi, etc.) without pushing you to book something with them (you can book tours in nearly every hotel in saigon, also in this one).

Payment is made by cash in US$ or in VND or by credit card, but this adds, like everywhere 4% extra, so stay on cash.

Because it is located in the tourist area, you can go by food to the market, to the river, etc. the narrow alley doesn't fit cars, so you have to carry you luagage about 80m from the main road to the hotel. There's a nice and cheap restaurant on the groundfloor, too.

While you away on a tour for several days, they take care of your luagage for free.

We would definitly come again!!!

Room Tip: rooms facing the side of the hotel are quieter, superior rooms on 3rd or 4th floor are best

I really liked this hotel. I did originally book a balcony room but was emailed that there was a problem in the bathroom and wouldn't be fixed by the time we arrived!! We were given a superior room instead ( no balcony) this was no problem!!! For the price 35 us dollar a night I thought the rooms were fantastic. Aircon, mini bar with 2 free water per day, tv with good English channels, a mozzie zapper!!! Uv light thing!!! Big bathroom with nice towels and toiletries. There was even a computer in the room!! The beds 2 single were big and comfy. Not forgetting the in room safe!! Doesn't fit iPad in but no problem reception will look after personal items. I could go on and on with praises for this hotel!! They picked us up from the airport 20 dollar!!! A bit steep but less hassle. We were met at the end of the alley by hotel staff who carried our bags they also carried up to the rooms. 10 dollar for the return transfer. Staff are very friendly all of them including the kitchen staff who I sat with at the bottom of the stairs. They cook very nice food, well done kitchen staff xx special mention to receptionist Thao Le for your excellent customer service!!! Can't thank you enough especially when I had a parcel coming from Hanoi to another hotel in Saigon!!!! Bestlocation in backpacker area loved it here and will come back if in Saigon. Directly opposite hotel little travel agency!! Booked a full day tour of Mekong delta think was about £8.00 with lunch aircon coach and nice boats!!! and picked up outside by tour guide this tour was excellent.
