The best part is being able to trade an English book from the shelves to get you through until your next visit. The Library Alcove is a very comfortable and enjoyable place to... More

good location, near to the airport, friendly staff, modern style, lovely decorated room on the 3rd floor (winnie the pooh), good breakfast on the top, prices in the restaurant a little bit high, sad room on the ground floor at the first stop (because they were fully booked)

Just away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to enjoy all the action of downtown Saigon. The service was excellent, friendly and helpful. The restaurant was intimate and had a lovely outlook over rooftops of the city. Food excellent.

My partner and I had a fantastic time at The Alcove. We were there for a very short trip and chose it due to its proximity to the airport. We weren't disappointed, the breakfast was simply delicious and the bedroom comfortable.

When the taxi driver took us down an alley off the main drag, we wondered what we were getting into. What a surprise as we were confronted with this little gem.

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
