Fantastic sums it all up! The Cinnamon Boutique Hotel is an awesome place to stay while in Ho Chi Minh City. From the moment you get there you are made to feel like family. The managers (owners?) who run the place are super friendly and happy to help out whenever needed, whether it's help with banking matters, organising transport, or a nice cold beer after returning from a harrowing trip on the 'country' roads, there was never a problem. The breakfasts are made to order, at hatever time you manage to straggle downstairs. No lifts (elevators) so prepare to climb a few stairs if you are near the top, but this adds to the quirkiness. The rooms are large, beautifully decorated, and if you can go for the balcony rooms which overlook the street - awesome! Would stay there in a heart beat if we end up back in Ho Chi Minh!
