Holly was super sweet and friendly immediately when we arrived. She gave us a map and told us the hot spots and where to go outside of District 1 (where we were). WiFiwas great and the room had a great A/C unit. Few things about this hotel, very mom and pop. Not sure if it's common but they keep the... More

A really helpful hotel. Booked after a bit of disaster at short notice from my initial booking this hotel provided an early check in, helpful advice about visiting the city, ensured metered taxis charged the correct amount, sorted a halfway tour of the Chi Chu tunnels at a reasonable price. A comfortable air-conditioned room in a quiet area a short... More

Im quite convinced that this hotel is ranked as high on Trip Advisor as it is simply based on the fact that it is clean and feels safe. Yes, it is 3kms and $5 from city centre. Not a big deal right?!? Well, with traffic, that's easily a 30 minute taxi ride. I had tickets to a show at the... More

I've stayed in this hotel for almost two weeks now & will be here for two weeks in total. It's great value & clean & comfortable with good sized rooms & lovely staff. Much better than the equivalent priced places around the centre of HCMC - but still close enough to all amenities. It's set in a very nice local... More

I arrived early in the morning and they accommodated my super late check in although I accidentally startled the receptionist. The room was a little sparse with no window except to the central hall but was very adequate to escape the heat. Very friendly staff and the location is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the CBD.... More

Decent hotel, with nice clean room. Was a bit small and only window was to internal of the building, but for the price, still pretty nice. Good air conditioning unit, large bathroom, and big bed. Helpful staff, although English wasn't great (better than my Vietnamese though). Only 10 min walk from city centre in D1, not too much nearby in... More

This place is highly recommended due to its place and environment. What I like the most is the cafe and shop nearby is very convenient and lots of cheap and delicious local food. Especially the coffee opposite the hotel is so far the best coffee I had tried. Thumbs up!

This hotel was excellent value and we were delighted with the quality of the hotel. Staff were helpful especially a young boy who had excellent English. We also had a lovely cheap breakfast on the rooftop. Highly recommend for a budget traveller. Only a short taxi journey to the centre. About $3 or less depending on time of day.

We stayed 3 nights for less than 400,000 VND/night for a standard room (booked online). It's a nice hotel away from the busy downtown area, with many delicious street food options on the road. We do not recommend the restaurant at the top level. The staff was very helpful in calling trusted taxis, recommending sites to visit in town, and... More

Located in district 10 this hotel is about $3USD in a taxi to the city centre (district 1)The room was described accurately and was clean and tidy. The street had plenty of Vietnamese food options. Staff were friendly and helpful. If you aren't fussed about staying somewhere quite basic and are on a budget then I highly recommend Minh Chau!
