“Bit of a mix up with airport pickup...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2010 via mobile

Bit of a mix up with airport pickup meaning there was noone there for a while to pick us up. Rooms were fine - big and clean with hot water, tv, and air con. Good location in the heart of the backpacker district. Our room was 25 dollars though which is a bit pricey for the standard. Breakfast was included but was pretty terrible with a choice of jam and bread or eggs and bread. Overall a pretty average and pricey option.

This place is in the center of everything. The staff is fun and friendly, helpful, kind and caring. The rooms are clean, furniture is modern and new. The food was great! Cook and all staff speak and understand English well.

I'm glad we stay at Sports 2 hotel (82 Le Lai Street) during our 4 days trip to Ho Chi Minh. They don't have many guest rooms in the house, but the room is nice and clean. However, since our room faces the main road, we could hear the traffic noise at night.
The location of the hotel is really good. It is at 5 mins walking distance to Ben Thanh market and many city tour services. There are also numerous eating places around the area.
The staff are very friendly. They all speak English and are really helpful. They even assisted us to make a reservation at a French restaurant. Furthermore, they gave us good exchange rate for USD to VND.

I was stayed at Saigon sports 2 hotel at 82 le lai streets, for 3 night on last holiday with 3 of my friends. They are do very good services, we booked the room via online booking, and no need to pay a downpayment and also they are pick up us in the airport. All the staffs are speak english and very helpfull. They are also help us to arrange the tour to delta meikong and other city tour with good price, even when we booked it at the late nite.
The hotel is small but clean and good. The place is near to ben thanh market, it is just walk a few minutes and near to many restorant. They have computer to use for free and also free Wifi access in the room.
so I am highly recomended this hotel to all of you that need a clean and good services.

stayed here 5 days, beds soft thank goodness, room great value, quiet even though traffic one street away to main road, rooms at back even quieter but smaller. only few english speaking tv channels, breakfast good but not big variety but only one street from all the backpacker food. Great location in backpacker area but not too busy. all travel tours in surrounding streets or book thru hotel, we were recomended different trips by who the guide was and i think it makes the trip much more informative. Staff at hotel very helpful, ask for clothes to be pressed if you want washing neat but very clean and nicely folded, just not ironed. I have recomended this hotel to our friends. For vietnam in general i say take ear plugs, and expect the beds to be uncomfortable. They are used to sleeping on mats so arent aware that us older westerners need our softer beds. had airport transfers arranged and so easy as this is a very busy city and takes the stress out of getting where you want to be. Watch out for shonky taxi drivers whos meters are not working. ask to stop, exit and call next cab, hundreds of them so you wont get caught out.
