5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Owned by a nice Vietnamese couple from Germany you feel immediately welcome and well hosted. Their food is awesome and the 6 rooms are comfy. I hope they'll finish the rooftop soon. Definitely my guesthouse again if I'll have my next stay in Saigon.

We stumbled upon this gem and it didn't disappoint. Delicious food - we ordered the baby octopus which was so amazing we ordered a second. The staff were so so nice and welcoming. They even shared some of their staff meal with us. Totally recommend this place!

New guesthouse & restaurant owned by a lovely German-Vietnamese couple. Highly recommendable as it is very welcoming, friendly, clean, on the more calm side of Bui Vien, plus good food at competitive prices. Nice for both backpackers as well as more mature travellers. The owners know HCMC well and can give you loads of ideas on what to do and... More

This place is a diamond in the rough. Not only is the food splendid; the staff are honest and hospitable people who provide a welcoming and warm environment. With cheap beers, excellent banter and quality service, Royal Saigon Restaurant and Luesthouse has become my favorite place in Vietnam to get a bite to eat.

Very very basic accommodation, with not the best feelings of clean room or bathroom. Fan full of dust and similar for air-conditioning. Room not cleaned every day, with a cheap price but not super cheap. Staff not very present but neither annoying.
