“Good hotel with great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Nice clean hotel with very friendly staff and great service. The manager was very helpful and helped us find some last minute bus tickets during the crazy Tet period. Can happily recommend this. It's even close to the train station

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was by far one of the best hotels we stayed in. Even though you must take a taxi to the center of the taxi, the location is very good if you want to see and get to know the real vietnamese life.
The staff is very friendful, helpful, and caring.
The rooms are very nicely decorated, comfortable beds, clean and spacious bathrooms.
It has very good Wifi, and air conditioning.
I definitively recommend this hotel for all types of travellers.

I stayed at the Minh Chau Hotel from 1/30/13 to 2/15/13, Ms. Fu spoke fluent English & her staff was really friendly & competant. This off the beaten place quaint place, on a neat little side street Hoa Hung, in an area with plenty of character. The hotel itself was very well kept, comfortable & interesting.
I will be returning for another stay in 6/13. It is just off the main drag CMT8(Cach Mang Thang Tam). Plenty of room for your motor bike & eqasy access to street food just out the front door. A very safe friendly neighborhood. It felt more like your own home than a hotel. Since I got engaged there on 2/15/13, it will hold a special place in my life. If you want to see the REAL Saigon, be sure to stay here...

Room Tip: We stayed in a suite with microwave, fridge & kitchen sink. Very useful to sit & eat your o...

I was only in Saigon for 1 night, but wish I had stayed longer! The hotel was very nice - the room was clean and well-equipped, and the hotel owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. I thought the location of the hotel was great as well - not far from District 1 (only a 5-10 min taxi ride), still in the center of the city, and in a nice area. There's a great cafe - Cafe Sorrento - nearby as well as a great vegetarian restaurant - Saigon Vegan.

We were addressed to Minh Chau by a frequent visitor of the city. We asked for an hotel outside the district 1 and more into the city. We found the hotel perfectly off the beaten track as we desired and yet in the heart of Ho Chi Min city regular (hectic) life. We loved the owner and host Phu who went above and beyond her duty to assist with getting comfortable in the city. Overall the staff is friendly, attentive and always makes you feel like their special guest. The rooms were spacious, clean and the bathrooms the best kept in the entire Vietnam we visited for hotels of the same category. We stayed at our arrival in Ho Chi Min and on the way out of Vietnam we cut short one day visit in the north to be able to spend one more day in this hotel and on the road where it is located. The experience on the street where the hotel is located is worth it. Walking was the preferred method of transportation and allowed us a detailed view of the city life.

The host and staff are absolutely amazing. We had a lot of fun time together. The hotel is off the beaten track, though a very short taxi ride to the more touristy area. I personally prefer such a location, coz it helps to know more about the daily life of locals, and it's quiet. And with a lot of eateries nearby, it's easy to sample the local cuisine or stick to your usual western style food, at very reasonable price. The hotel itself is pretty new, so everything is good. And the roof top garden/bar is beautiful, although it was under renovation when i was there, a pity, but i'm sure it will provider better service to a much larger group when the work is done. I will definitely go back there if i visit Ho Chi Minh city again, even just to meet the host family, like meeting some friend.

Rooms are super clean and comfortable. Super friendly and helpful staff. I don't mind walking to places and enjoyed seeing more Vietnamese on the way there. Walked there from the train station (10 min) & best of all: strong wifi in the rooms. I'd stay here again. also, check out pho 129 & restaurent Serento, food and drink shop 24/7 which are really close to there.

I asked hotel the pivk-up service, they gave me two choices : picking -up or took taxi myself with hotel manager cellphone number to avoid the taxi went around . Taxi cost About 6 -7 usd drive cab from the airport to hotel.
