“New & clean room and bathroom”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

The bed sheets and blankets are old but bathroom is very new. Very clean also. Got an upgrade to a triple room with window, bathtub and a safe box. Toiletries came in 3 sets and they are nice. There's a column between the small bed and the big bed, so they made a shelf with mirror in front, and I could put the remote controls there. The air con works well and is very quiet. Furniture in room are made up from the old style so they look outdated. They give free water bottles, coffee, tea & pop corn in room. Couldn't find the plug to use the kettle so had to bring kettle to the bed to boil water. In the rooftop restaurant, they have vegetarian dishes. Mine tastes very good. The buffet breakfast is a good value for the price paid (I paid only 27 US$). Located slightly out of the happenings in this backpacker district, so a few minute walk will bring you to see hundreds of Caucasian guests sitting on the street to drink beer. Imagine a narrow shop has no where for them to sit, so they sit in front of the shop to the street, about 5 to 6 rows x 8 people a row. Many shops like this. The local restaurant on the right of Duc Vuong Hotel, 2 houses apart I think, has excellent noodle for only 50,000 VND.

First of all, we are very thank you to all your recommendation and suggestions to our hotel and service.
There are a lot of room types. We chose the traditional way to bring impression to you (all customers). Actually, we have just done renovation since July 2012, so you could see all the new stuffs & bathtubs new furniture, fridges and air-cons. It could bring to you more conveniences like you are living in your home-sweet-home.
For the same comments about the bed sheets and blankets, you will spend no worries at all because we have the cleaning team to do all the washing, they are experience and very tiny, there is no problems at all with it, because we use the best way to clean
There are some electric holes in the room, not only are by your bed, but they are also from behind the “make up” cabinet, next time, you could call 0 and receptionist will show you . However, in some rooms, there are barely electric holes, but anyway we will inspect and maintain it to fix the demand of using the kettle
There are many narrow shop and very loudly on the street outside the hotel. But we could bring it better with our restaurant on 7th floor, you could also enjoy Vietnamese or European meals and get good view terrace up there. If you come here by yourself, you could also make friends with a lot of other guests, good conservations, nice view, cold beer and delicious dishes. Thus, you do not need to walk further to those eateries from the street if you like quiet place in the terrace.
We are not only bringing our services, but also giving you the feelings as living at your home. You would feel more enjoyable and relaxing with Duc Vuong family

We stayed for 5 nights. Very friendly staff. They accidently washed some of our clothes but we didnt have to pay for it. Awesome rooftop bar! Good location at end of bar street. Close to all sights. We would definately stay here next time we visit Saigon!

It was our first stop on our holiday to Vietnam, after reading about the taxi scams, we used their pick up from the airport which was worth the money. All the staff were extremely helpful in making our 3 night stay a good one.
Rooms were clean and they also had fresh water containers on each floor. Location was ideal as you did not have to walk far to the many restaurants, although we were offered a free meal on our arrival. The roof top bar was a bonus away from all the traffic again service was good and prices reasonable, the only down side is that the music was very loud and as our room was on the 5th floor this could be heard till late. We booked our tunnel visit and a 3 day 2 night Mekong delta to Phnom Penh with the travel agency downstairs both good value and very well organised. Would use this hotel again.

I spent 3 months in this wonderful hotel in 2012 at the beginning of the year & another week in September. I enjoyed my time there very much - the staff are incredible - nothing was too much trouble - very friendly & helpful - just like family which is how they billed themselves & they lived up to that very well. They were undertaking some renovations to some rooms in September, so I guess it is even better now. I am hoping the new mattresses are not quite as hard!
The rooftop terrace is a great place to relax, cool off in the evening, have a meal or a drink with friends & meet some new ones. The computer room was great - a cup of tea appeared at my elbow whenever I sat there! The free bananas were also a nice touch.
Every member of staff contributed to a great stay in HCMC. I am returning for 10 days in April this year.

Room Tip: Always ask for a window.

Thank you for your review, our staffs are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your time for long term stay with us. The renovation has been finished and all rooms have been upgraded to a better quality of furniture and stronger internet, but price is still reasonable. All our mattresses are high quality and at your choice to be softer. it was quite hard because we used double layer. I am glad that you enjoy the rooftop terrace, now it is also possible for you to request songs to play as your favorite. we are looking to seeing you again at our hotel as "we are family". Thanks a lot!

Didn't stay here (regret not) but the rooftop bar was fantastic with cheap beer, great food and awesome atmosphere. Had a great time here for TET (Lunar New Years Eve). Well worth a visit, staff are hilariously fantastic

Oh, I love your words "fantastic with cheap beer, great food and awesome atmosphere." Yes, our beer is cheap as 12,000vnd, but it is also free with 1 cup of banana wine and snack such as peanut or french fried. The cheap price is for all the time of day. Hope to see you for your next visit.

We stayed three nights at Duc Vuong an really liked it! The Rooms are neatly made and maintained but what really made the difference was the staff! Very helpful and friendly they always live up to their saying "we are family". Rooftop terrace is really nice for sunsets and just to relax. Breakfast was really good including vietnamese food options.
I recommend the place.

Room Tip: Try to avoid 1st or sixth floor as the rooms are not really soundproof.

Pretty good value but it was a bit more expensive than other similar Vietnamese hotels we stayed in, however it was during Tet. Great location. We walked to many places. Breakfast was fine with perhaps less variety than some hotels. We organized a tour to Cu Chi Tunnels from the travel agent in the hotel and it was a very well organized tour. The front desk staff was delightful. The rooftop patio is a lovely oasis if you want a quiet break.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back so it was quiet.

Thank you for your review. our hotel is almost the same price or lower than other 2-star hotel in HCM City, but the quality and service is always being improve. Maybe our cheapest room was fully booked on the Tet. I will offer you a cheaper room for your next visit, but still free WIFI, buffet breakfast, coffee and tea in room, 2 bottles of mineral water everyday .... etc! Hope to see you soon.
