“Good rooms, good staff, very noisy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Good clean room with good facilities. Located in district 1 where all the bars are, so it was very noisy at night. There are also rooms on the back of te building, but they were fully booked. Staff was very friendly and always helpfull. Good breakfast.

We have traveled in southeast asia for 30 days and this has been the best hotel we've stayed at, from the moment we arrived, they carried our (heavy) luggage, took copies of our passports and in less than 1 minute they gave us the keys to our room! The room is a little small, bas it's more than enough, there have very high speed internet but facebook seemed to be blocked no matter how try to overpass it, but it worked perfectly on my iphone. The receptionists are extremely friendly (especially the girl wearing traditional clothes) they always said hi with a smile and on the day we left the receptionist actually tried to stop us from leaving! wow! The only downside in this hotel is that we have actually found lots of small ants in the room, but luckily I had my insect repellent and it worked like a charm. Our room was without a window on the interior side so it was extremely quite and away from the noise, we heard some guests complaining that they couldn't sleep because of the noise, so make sure to book an interior room without a window, you won't believe how loud this street gets until you see it!

I stayed at this hotel for 6 days in Saigon and the only reason that this hotel takes 3 stars, is because of it's great and helpful staff.
First i had arrange a pick up service for me and my wife from the airport and no one came to pick us up. So i call the hotel from the airport and they told me that the driver they had did not respond to their calls. So i took a taxi straight to the hotel. When we arrived they gave us a room on 6 floor with a window (keep this in your mind), but the room was extremely small for two people. This was the smallest room i ve ever seen in my life. We have booked a superior room (larger one) and not the standar room that in hotel's site was described as a small one. So after 5 minutes i went down to the reception desk to complaint about my reservation. The girl there, told me that this room was a good one bacause is a quiet room and also had a window and then she show me another room in 2nd floor (extremely larger than our room) but she told that was an extremely noisy room and better to stay in the room on 6 floor. Of course i didnt follow her advice and i made a big mistake.
The new room was at the side of street which were all the bars and clubs...! The night we had was terrible. It was like someone tries to sleep upon a subwoofer in a rave party . Next day straight down again to the girls in reception in order to change the room again. They gave me 2 options in order to choose between two quite rooms without windows in 2nd and 3d floor. So we decide to move in 3d floor in order to avoid the floor near the bars. The new room was extremely quite but inside there was no air at all (no window). So we had to leave our door a little open in order to have fresh air from the corridor . Then i realised that the first tinny room we had at first was the best one in the hotel.

So definitely we will not come back to this hotel.

1)The location was terrible for couples. (the hotel was in the heart of clubbing area, where lots of tourists go there for drink ,sex ,and drugs) AVOID THIS AREA !!!!

2)The hotel's rooms was extremely poor. Noisy some of theme and the others with no window (so no fresh air inside)

3) The ONLY THING that this hotel takes from us 2 stars is because of it's very helpfull and pleasant staff, and because of the clean rooms it had.

TRY TO STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE IN DISTRICT 1 AREA in order to be in the centre of town's markets and sightseeings. DO NOT STAY IN DE THAM STREET

Room Tip: AVOID DE THAM STREET HOTELS IN DISTRICT 1 AREA. ALL THE CLUBS ARE IN THIS NOISY AREA . IF you want t...

Stayed here one night, hotel was very good, staff very nice and friendly. Had an issue with plumbing in my room when I checked in, took them about 4 hrs to rectify, but they gave me a room to store my gear and have a shower, smack bang in the middle of Backpacker area and could be noisy at night if you weren't out enjoying yourself.

+) Hotel is located in Bacpackers part of town. Great place to have fun, but difficult to sleep, because of noise in this neighbourhood. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Rooms are clean and well-equipped.
-) Rooms with windows are usually more expensive. There was window but you cannot open it, so it's useless. There is such noise on the street, that room without window could be sometimes even better choice. We did not like breakfast. There was a lot of dirty dishes on tables next to us and also on the buffet. At 9 a.m. there was only 1 fruit left, even though they supposed to be available (breakfast is served till 10 a.m.).

Room Tip: in this hotel room without window is better choice because of noise

We stayed here for two nights and was given room 201, we are both in our twenties and don't often complain but the music was like we were actually trying to sleep in the bar next door.

HOWEVER with little sleep we asked reception to move us, which they did to room 302 and we had a very very peaceful nights sleep. Couldn't believe the difference, if you get given a front room then little sleep will be had.

Hotel staff, location and room, bathroom was great..

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. It is located right in the heart of the backpacker area. The rooms are lovely however I would recommend paying extra and choosing a duluxe room that is not facing the main road as the bars downstairs have music playing exceedingly loudly until the early hours. The staff were lovely and very helpful. Julie on the front desk had very good English and recommended where we should go in the city. We had a couple of issues but theses were rectified very quickly by the staff and management and they really went beyond to help make our stay at comfortable as possible.
