“Nice hotel in a good location - very helpful staff!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

This is a very good hotel, centrally located amongst lots of good value restaurants and near to the sights, whilst being slightly away from the main strips. Staff were very friendly and helpful and breakfast was good (wide range from omelettes, sandwiches, etc.), and they can also book onward travel to Cambodia for you by coach for around $7 (it's a 6-7 hour bus journey). I had a deluxe bedroom, cost around $25, which comes a double and a single bed, the bathroom is a wet room design, with an OK shower. Decent wifi throughout, and TV, computer and fridge with drinks all in the room. Highly recommended

Found this hotel on Tripadvisor and was so happy with it that we extended our stay to 3 nights. We were upgraded to superior room our first night which was great and moved to a standard for the last. All The rooms were very clean. plus there was great wifi, big breakfast selection, safe, and the staff was so so friendly and helpful! Ms. Nhung helped us book tours, flights, and even a hotel for our next destination. She went above and beyond helping us and making sure we were happy! Located in the center of backpackers district, you can walk to all the major sites in the area. And for being right in the heart of the action, the rooms stayed quiet if you wanted to call it an early night. Overall an amazing experience! Would def recommend and stay here again!

This was the third time I've stayed at the Graceful Saigon Hotel and again I'm very pleased with the decision to do so. The room and bed were 'again' comfortable and clean along with English movie channels, computer and Internet or free WIFI if you prefer to use your own lappy or cell-phone, ice cold a/c, nice shower & toilet, a safe for your valuables and a hot water kettle with coffee & tea. Then every morning between 6am-9am a complimentary breakfast was on offer (I had my usual banana, bread roll with butter and jam, bacon & eggs and coffee) And to top it off the staff are very nice and helpful, always greeting you with a big smile. They are an asset to the business and always made me feel at home, which means that when ever I'm in Ho Chi Minh city the Graceful Saigon will always be my choice of hotel.
From an eating perspective there are nice restaurants within 2-3 minutes of the hotel and many bars offering drinks and spa's offering relaxing massages all up a great hotel in a great location.

The small staff is caring and super considerate. The rooms are clean as can be, plenty big enough, tasteful and wi-fi connected by desktop. The location is plugged into the hustle bustle of the city. The breakfast is good and charmingly prepared in the intimate dinette. The stairs are good for you. For the cost of a big lunch in the US, you can spend a comfortable and refreshing night at the Graceful. First-timers cannot go wrong here.

My impression, a great Hotel.
As this was my first accomodation in Vietnam I waEeees a little bit wary at first. From my late arrival to departure date, everything was great. From the staffs local knowledge to their constant smiling faces, I always felt welcome. I thoroughly recommend this hotel as a value for money location for your stay in Saigon.

We stayed here two night - one night in one of the small back rooms and one night in the large front rooms. The front rooms are noisy but we were given ear plugs which worked really well and the hotel had the frames for new windows to be installed in all the front rooms which are going to be double glazed so no more noise problems. The noise comes from an Aussie Bar with live music mainly so it is not the hotel's fault and we knew about it before we booked. Those windows will go in as soon as the people return to install them.

This is a very busy part of HCMC - well located but busy from early to really late (3.00am). If you want to mix with other western's on the bars and restaurants then District 1 is the place.

The staff were very helpful and as our flight home was not until 20.30pm I organised to pay a bit extra and keep the room until 6.00pm so that we could have showers and finish packing before heading to the airport in the taxi they called for us.

We ate at the restaurant over the road on our last night and it was great meal which included Crepes Suzette!

It was very hot which is usual for HCMC and the air con worked well.

Give this hotel a go but keep an open mind about the location - you can't complain about the noise if you choose to stay in the noisy part of town. Great value for the money.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back a very small but have everything you need and they are quieter. The rooms at the f...

Everything is up to expectation. Good breakfast varieties, helpful services, excellent locations to any where. Good Vietnamese foods...visit Pho Gwyen or Kim Cafe or lane way cart food stand.
Fresh boost juice stand right across the road in the alley way. Full of ppl sitting & waiting for their turn. Booking any tour with TNK is excellent but be aware if partly serviced by Mekong Tour (MT). MT has a reputation of changing/cut cornering your last minute itinerary with bull crap execuses and ruin your holiday. Be careful! Last minute changes can also lead you to a run down guesthouse instead of a proper hotel. Demand for partial refund and it does work.Get hold of the cellphone nbr 24/7 to ring for help from the person (Ms Nhung) whom you paid your tour for & speak the linqua.
Lastly, if you stay at GS, ask for back or middle rooms. Front rooms are 'no go' even for a street beggar. GOOD LUCKKKK!

Room Tip: A small tips for appreciation but not mandatory
