Pros. Clean room, no bugs, hot shower, good sized room and a little more than basic breakfast (noodles, toast, cereal, eggs, bacon and fruits). Helpful staff.
Only one Con. Not walking distance to night market or dong khoi, but only a $1-2 taxi
I recommend reading up about taxi scams*** There are a number of taxi companies which are privately owned and if youre not attentive they will start your meter at $10. Also we met a couple whom when refusing to pay the absurd amount, the taxi driver simply drove off with all their bags still in the trunk. Taxi rides around HCMC should cost no more than $1-5. Trusted taxi are VINASUN (we used this company everyday. Be wary because there are phony taxi which say "VINASUM" or "VINASON") and Mai linh. Also if the phone number on the cab is a repeated 2 digit number than it's general a good taxi. For example 3-87-87-87-87.
