I got this Hotel of Agoda with as an alternative to the previous Zoolutstay 271 (which was very nice). A little hard to find, with the help of google, down a side road this hotel basically hits the same standard. Fresh, clean, modern and welcoming. Kind staff and an uncomplicated check in and check out are always nice. An underground... More

I stayed here for two nights, and was delighted with the location and comfort levels of this hotel. So close to the main city sites and in the heart of the backpacker area, filled with great places to eat and meet new people. My room was spotless, and staff were quite helpful. Only criticism was the breakfast, which lacked the... More

I stayed here a total of four nights broken up in 3 different trips to HCMC. The hotel is very clean.... The best bit is the beds. The best beds I had in the whole of Vietnam was at this hotel. The sheets are soft and the mattress isn't rock solid like some places. I had a range of rooms... More

We booked a non-window room with breakfast around £26. From the second we stepped out of a taxi we were assisted with our bags. Doors were opened every time we entered and left the hotel. The staff kept our bags safe when we went on a 2 day trip even though we weren't staying with them the night we came... More

Gia Vien Hotel is clean, well appointed and in a great location. I can't see what else you need. The rooms aren't huge but there is room to move, room for your luggage, a decent size bathroom and great water pressure in the shower/bath. We stayed in this hotel 3 separate times in a month. Walking distance to Ben Thanh,... More

Gia Vien is in the middle of a busy side-street coming out of a very busy road. So, stay there and you have ready access to shopping, meals, entertainment and street life. As such, my first thought upon arrival was that I wasn't going to rest well at night; my brother who'd been to this part of town before me... More

I stayed here for two nights, the staff over here had bad attitude. The road leading to this hotel is very narrow. Rooms were too small and bad the price for what they charged....In surrounding areas there many many good hotels and good price.

Stay 1 night in a VIP room. Clean room but bed was a bit hard. bathtub was nice and shower works fine. Breakfast was disappointing with not many varieties. Location is good with many restaurants just outside the hotel. But i think it still worth to stay for the price.

Centrally located on the Ben Thanh market side of the Pham Ngu Lao backpacker/tourist area, Gia Vien is just a walk to anywhere in District 1. It's a fairly new hotel so hasn't had chance to deteriorate yet - hence everything still works! Excellent double bed in our room, ditto toilet/bathroom (incl toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, and wall-mounted bath gel and... More
