Our room at Minh Chau was comfortable and clean with air-con, a comfy bed and a nice bathroom with a bathtub and shower curtain (not the norm in Vietnam budget hotels). Our room had no windows but we were aware of this as we booked the cheapest room. Our room was serviced daily.
The owner is very friendly and always there to help, be it arranging a trip to Cu Chi tunnels or recommending places to eat in the area.
It is worth mentioning that the hotel is not really central and getting into the centre either involves a 30 minute walk along a busy road or a $3 taxi ride. On the plus side, it is in a local area on a road with a bustling market, great bargain food stalls, coffee houses, hairdressers etc which we actually preferred to the central and backpacker area.
If you arrive by bus on Pham Ngu Lao Street like we did, ensure that you don't pay over the odds for a taxi to the hotel as we were initially quoted $6 from a taxi until we found one with a non-rigged meter that charged 55,000 Dong.
