This is a wonderful choice if you want a classy hotel with a beautiful decor and exceptionally friendly staff. It is approximately 60,000vmd in a taxi to the centre of downtown hcmc, and the actual street it is on is quite grimy. However the building itself is in a French colonial style and is perfectly clean and welcoming. The breakfast... More

Hotel staffs were very friendly and welcoming. The interior design was unique, surrounded by many books near the entrance. They serve great breakfast in the morning too. I will definitely come back if I visit Ho chi minh city again in the future.

Great staff, very helpful, good English. Room was lovely, close to airport but not isolated. Free shuttle to the city in the morning. Great showers, (could be hotter according to my wife). Love the decor.

Super nice boutique hotel, clean and with lovely furnishing. Next to the airport and thus not very convenient if you want to visit the city center. The room was nice, but the aircon position was too straight on the bed (see the pic). An hangher and a bin in the bathroom would be useful. In all the hotels I was,... More

I loved the lobby in this hotel as you do really feel that you are in a library. I also admire their efforts to help underprivileged children in the area by buying them books, your stay here contributes to this. The rooms are spacious and clean and the food was good, especially the yoghurt served at breakfast. The hotel is... More

We arrived late in to Ho Chi Minh and opted to stay at this hotel based upon reviews we read here on TripAdvisor. The lobby is lovely and quite different from the standard hotels. We found the hotel to be a genuine boutique hotel option. Rooms were very clean with furnishings in very good condition. Beds and pillows are VERY... More

We booked a one night stay in this hotel as we were visiting friends. It was a good decision as the room was spacious and clean, the beds were very comfortable and we had a good night's rest as it was quiet. Service was friendly and warm. If the location works for you, donot hesitate to stay here!

The hotel is tucked away near the airport with many beautiful cafes nearby for a great meal. The breakfast was great (go for the eggs Benedict or the Pho Soup!). Staff were excellent and friendly. Only drawbacks were that the rooms were not soundproofed so you could hear travellers in the corridors.

We only stayed at The Alcove overnight on transit to Hoi An but this little gem was an excellent find. WE arranged for the hotel to collect us from the airport and they were sitting waiting holding the card when we arrived.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to The Alcove Library Hotel, an unrivaled boutique hotel experience in the centre of Ho Chi Minh City. We opened our doors in July 2012 and are located just off Nguyen van Troi street, the main avenue connecting the Tan Son Nhat International Airport to the city centre. This prime location offers great convenience to our guests, as the airport and the city are usually only 10 to 15 minutes away by taxi, depending on traffic conditions. Nestled in a charming and quiet neighbourhood street, The Alcove Library Hotel also offers respite from the hustle and bustle of the city, and yet represents a perfect base from which to explore the excitement of Saigon.In keeping with our name, The Alcove Library Hotel offers a sanctuary of deluxe accommodations, architectural elegance and timeless style. Our rooms feature supremely comfortable beds and pillows, over 70 channels on flat screen TVs, and a range of amenities designed to cater to the needs of discerning and savvy travelers.Our hotel is meant to be enjoyed, experienced and rediscovered with each visit. We have an extensive library that offers a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction books for guests to borrow during their stay with us. High-speed wireless Internet connectivity is also available free-of-charge in guestrooms and throughout public areas. Our concierge service can also help tailor a personal itinerary, offering recommendations on places to visit. Our restaurant on our fifth floor, the Roadhouse Saigon, aims to offer the best burgers and contemporary fare in town. Guests can eat in air-conditioned comfort or enjoy the outdoor terrace overlooking neighboring rooftops. At The Alcove, a new level of hospitality in Saigon awaits you, where smiles abound, the service is gracious, your needs are anticipated, and your comfort is our top priority. ... more   less
