“The best among hotels near airport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

I stayed there 2 days because of business trip in hcm. My working zone is near airport. I am quite impressed because of this hotel. The reason is that I couldn't find any suitable hotel near airport like this alcove hotel. And free pickup and drop off service also are one of the good reason for me to choose this. Breakfast, service, room, location, everything i give you five.

we stopped over ho chi minh for a couple of days a few weeks back. it was a very pleasant, restful experience for our family.
our room was pleasant - wonderful shower btw! - comfortable and clean. friendly staff.
when we needed to wait in the lobby for our ride, there were plenty of books to keep our family occupied!
the location was very good- walking distance from everything - food, shopping, taxis. we didn't expect a pool or spa or anything, so it was very suitable spot for our stay.
i especially enjoyed the fact that the alcove was a themed/concept hotel.

The alcove hotel like its name is tucked away in a small neighborhood street.
On the way there you have no idea where the hotel will be but suddenly it just appears; an old European style building with a charming garden courtyard.
The rooms are quite small but with nonetheless the same amenities as a regular hotel.
It might be a bit far from where the tourists eat, shop and sight-see, but the staff was most helpful in getting you a taxi.
They were always there to serve you!

I spent 4 days at the Alcove Hotel in July of this year and I was very impressed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and spacious with all mod cons. The hotel is both close to the airport and the city center (just a short cheap taxi ride). I would thoroughly recommend this hotel and hope to visit again soon.

spent 2012summer vacation at the alcove library hotel. we arrived at 23:30 at the airport and the hotel worker took us to the hotel. he was very kind and smart(bilingual speaking) i'm impressed. the hotel is lately renewaled and reopened so very clean and comportable to use internet. most o f all, there are many books in the hotel lobby(because it's library hotel) and we can have a free time for reading them. it makes my vacation very cool and fun. and in the 5th floor, there is a very nice restaurant and bar so we can drink many kinds of global beers and delicious food.

Room Tip: rooms in the 3rd floor have air-conditioners.

New open library concept hotel, I stayed at two night. Room was very clean and had very comfortable bed and pillow. I allways stay 5star hotel, but this hotel's bed and pillow is excellent. Hotel size is small, but room and it's service is very good. Also this hotel had a new opened western style rooftop bar&restaurant.

Usually business hotels were boring... But Alcove was not like that!
Specially Alcove has a library. It makes my business trip very happy and comportable. actually i found and prepared some information for my meeting. And also i really enjoyed my free time with many books in Alcove's library. And Alcove has a good bar and restaurant. Actually it was not officially opened yet. But its kind owerner and
manager give a coffee with real smiling!! Thanks!
And Alcove's location was pretty good. It takes just 10minutes from airport. And they gave free pick up service to me.
And also its bed was great. Very comportable. I heard that Alcove's bed is most good quality one in vietnam. Thanks for giving great sleeping to me Alcove!!

I hope to enjoy my business trip in romantic library one more time!!!
