Kim hotel was clean and the staff nice. Ok English. The room was large and fresh, bed comfortable. The only reason we moved was due to it being a little pricey compared to others and we have a tight budget.

My sister and I stayed here for a couple of nights. The staff were very welcoming and the room was spotless. The location was excellent - just around the corner from Bui Vien street which has plenty of bars and restaurants to enjoy, and a short walk to the market. We enjoyed our stay there and, yes, there is a... More

We stayed for about 10 hours as we had to catch and early morning flight out HCMC. The staff were not overly friendly, seemed quite cranky, however it does seem as though they spend each night being woken up by drunken guests trying to get back in. The hotel is very conveniently located in the backpacker district off of the... More

I stayed at Kim Hotel for three nights and have nothing but positive things to day. The Staff was very friendly and they bargained with me and got me a really good price. I stayed in the top floor room on the roof and it was peaceful and simple, and I had the beautiful rooftop balcony all to myself most... More

They did do the whole 'the room you booked is not available, pay extra to upgrade' trick but i didnt mind paying 1$ a night extra. Besides that the hotel was very clean, Air Con spot on, good location off Bui Vien.

The owner is very friendly and helpful. Probably because it was low season, we could get a good room for little money. The room was cleaned dayly. We were happy with the service. The elevator is a plus since we were on the fourth floor. The breakfast selection is ok. The computer in the lobby works good and the location... More
