“Great little hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

First of all, Chahn is a really cool guy who goes out of his way to help you if you want recommendations. His English is very good as well. We got him to book flights for us which he was able to get cheaper than I could. The hotel is in a cute little lane way in district 1. Tomorrow will be our 3rd stay here and would definitely stay here next time we visit HCMC

A little bit north and west of the main "back packers" hang outs but also a bit quieter....well for Saigon anyway. Nice location, kept well cleaned, nice little breakfast, It was really a great little place and I would have given it a level higher except the room I ordered was "with window" and the room I got had a 12" by 18" window that one had to get on a chair to look out. I would say try to get a room on the front alley.

Room Tip: Get a room on the front alley with a window. Do not accept the little back window.

We stayed here in April 2013 as a family of five. The owners were wonderfully helpful, the rooms clean, great beds and a good location. This is definitely good budget accommodation in HCMC if you're on a budget. Highly recommended.

Affordable rates, superb service and friendly staff. Thanks so much for accomodating our requests. They even took the time to go out and convert our dollars since they ran out of bills. The person in charge also had good communication skills.

Not only was this hotel cost efficient, the staff were very helpful and friendly. They glady answered any queries and assisted in our adjustment to the area.

It is also situated on Pham Ngu Lao. A place which has basically been moulded to attract and entice foreigners.

Highly recommended.

I cant fault this hotel based on the cheap rates we got! It's clean, great location, tasty breakfast (they even made us an omelette baguette at 6am packaged to take to the airport) and wonderful staff. As other reviews have already mentioned they can arrange airport taxis and currency exchange. A great option in this central location.

Forget about all the stories about taxi's ripping people off~These guys will organise a taxi to pick you up from the airport with no payment issues for you. The hotel is clean, with working aircon, large TV's (with English channels), free Wi-Fi, hot water etc.The matrass is soft and the rooms get cleaned daily with fresh towels. I had no issues leaving my passport, money, jewellery etc at the front desk for safe keeping. Freshly cooked breakfast with a citrus juice and a western cup of coffee. If you pick a room on the higher levels the street noises during the night won't bother so much either. They will even exchange your US$ for Dong at the correct rate.
Great place!

Room Tip: If you value your sleep pick a room on the higher levels - the night life in the area puts Melbourne...
