“Friendly,helpful staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights in January.Room was good and the staff very friendly and helpful,and the location was good for taking a walk around HoChiMinh. Area is full of tourists and restaurants catering to tourists.It was probably easier to get a pizza than a good bowl of Vietnamese soup.Only bad thing was we had a front room on a Saturday night and had loud music from a bar across the street until 5AM. Back rooms are OK, I was told after.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street have a noise problem, which is worst on Saturday night.

I came across this place a few years ago so I was happy to make a return visit in Jan 2013. All I can say is that the quality, location, value for money and friendliness of all the staff are hard to beat. We had a spacious room with AC & street view at a cost of $20 per night. This was for two persons but the room could easily have accommodated three. The room rate includes breakfast & a light dinner plus hot drinks all day long. Free wifi. If you are on a budget but don't want to rough it you would do well to stay here.

We stayed for two nights and felt like at home. Very helpful staff and very clean rooms. Anything you need just ask at the reception and they won't hesitate to help. The best location you could have in Ho Chi Minh and prices are reasonable. I would definitely recomend it!

Good location, but our room wasn't that great, really thin mattresses that are rock hard and very old.. As was the air-con that was really noisy and blew warm air, so not the best night sleep Iv had by a long shot.. And at $20 you can get a lot better..

We were meant to stay for 3 nights but left after the first and moved to vinh chung, around the corner, this one isn't on trip advisor.. But it's $15 far quieter as its in an ally way, far cleaner and comfortable beds. Would recommend..

Just got the feeling that madam cuc are living on a false reputation for being lonely planets top pick... Not the worst stay in the work but definatly not the best.

The rooms here were clean and spacious with hot showers and all the amenities you need. Staff was friendly and accommodating, and most of them could speak relatively good English.

Rooms go for $20 to $25 which isn't bad. You could get cheaper rooms elsewhere but it's nice that they provide breakfast and dinners, as well as unlimited coffee and tea. Breakfast consists of bahn mi and scrambled eggs while dinner was what seemed like instant noodles and vegetarian spring rolls.

The location is right in the center of the backpackers district and surrounded by bars and restaurants, so it's good if partying and being able to crawl home is what you're after, but it's quite noisy at night.

I preferred staying at Madam Cuc 127 which is just a street away. It's close enough to the action but farther away from the noise.

Room Tip: get a room that's not on the street side as it can get pretty noisy until quite late

Clean, basic rooms, really nice staff. The girl who worked the front desk, though she seemed a little cold at first, we realized she's got a great sense of humor and a great attitude once you start getting to know her. She was really helpful in booking buses etc.

You get a small breakfast and dinner included, which never really sustained us but the breakfast was a great get-you-out-the-door kind of thing and the dinner we used as an afternoon or late night snack. We took advantage of this most days and really liked having it since we were on a pretty tight budget.

As others have said, if you want to be in the backpacker area this hotel is perfect. If that's not your scene, you may not enjoy this as much since it is in the busy thick of it.

Room Tip: Get a room lower down if you can because the stairs to the top can be pretty exhausting after a long...

Madame Cuc has three Hotels and we had previously stayed at Hotel 127, with absolutely excellent, friendly service and a small market place down the road.

However we found that staying at Hotel 64 the music in the neighboring nightclub pounded through the walls. Although I would not usually by bothered by noise, this went till about 4 in the morning and I could listen to the words of the pop songs. We had booked for four nights but left the following morning because we had had such a bad nights sleep.

Again I would like to stress that I recommend checking out Madam Cucs 127 Guesthouse, as they have the friendly service without the noise. They also have a tiny pet chihauha there which walks around the foyer. It's so tiny it can't climb up the stairs. I suppose if you don't like animals that might be a problem but we love them so it wasn't a bother :).

Breakfast is basic (bread rolls, butter jam and some watermelon) + tea. So I'd recommend going out and getting some fresh and zingy street food for $1 instead :).
I can't remember exactly what was on offer for dinner but we came in late (10pm) one night and they happily fried us up some little spring rolls which were filled with rice or something. Plus there was also instant noodles on offer with broth. Simple but filling if that's all you need.

With the breakfast/dinner... we actually found that most cheap hotels provided very simple meals for foriegners... Don't bother with them if you're on a culinary adventure ;)

Room Tip: Stay in the back rooms and on the higher up levels... We stayed at level 3 but could still hear the...
