This minihotel is located in the centre of the action on Saigon. We are a family of five who stayed here for four nights. The room was a bit tight for five, but the staff is nice and helpful, so we had a good stay. We were able to walk to many sights, once we had learned to locate the...

We stayed in Giangson 2. We really liked the spotless hotel, very recently decorated. The staff was most helpful (special thanks for that!) in general advice, booking trips and flights at lower prices than local travel agents offered. Good beds, clean, well-appointed bathroom, aircon, tv, fridge, wifi (though wireless reception did vary according to location in the hotel), located in...

We enjoyed the stay in this guesthouse and very surprised by the high quality of the rooms. They looked very modern, what is important there is air conditioning in each room. Also it has TV, quite spacious bathroom and clean towels every day. The hotel is very clean and the staff very helpful. The breakfast small but enough, though the...

The hotel is situated in Pham Ngu Lao area, which is good starting point to explore the city. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful (however if you book a taxi, it's cheaper to catch one on the street). We decided to book a tour to Cu Chi and Mekong Delta with hotel reception, and these were of good value...

What a way to start my trip in Vietnam. The room was great, super value for money and Ha in reception was my guardian angel! Im not sure I would have survived without her, she knows everything there is to know about Saigon. Make sure you ask her where the second market is- apparently I was the only person to...

really liked this place for all the reasons above. Only downside is that we had room 502, the only one with a sliding door and it didn't feel very secure. Other rooms have a proper lockable door. Breakfast was included (fried egg and baguette), that might get a boring after a few days! Would recommend overall.

We have been here twice; we arrived and departed from the HCM airport. Because we liked it so much the first time, we came back the second time. They welcomed us with a drink and showed the nice, compact but efficient room. Nice bathroom, clean and quit modern. The service is great and they are ver friendly. They help you...

The room was really small but well designed. The bathroom was not really a separate room - just partitioned off from the room - but the shower worked well. Everything was modern and newly done. The staff were really helpfull and friendly and the location is great. The breakfast consisted if eggs and bananas and some crusty bread. The orange...

There is fierce competition among the guesthouses in the Pham Ngu Lao area, but you'd be hard pressed to find another very clean hotel with excellent staff that will offer double rooms with day light for $16 incl. a good breakfast. We stayed in one of Giang Son 2's cheapest rooms on the third floor and were really happy with...
