We stayed here last night from 3:30 am to about 10:00 am. We arrived late on a bus and struck a deal whereby we agreed to pay $20 USD for three adults to stay one night in a room with two beds. When we checked out, they demanded $40 USD and refused to return our passports until we paid. The...

The rooms aren't 5 star but you're not paying 5 star rates and was very clean and comfortable. This combined with the fact that the staff were very friendly and helpful is the reason I give them a 4 rating. We were originally booked into their other hotel Duna Hotel but they only had doubles which wasn't going to be...

We were transfered here due to bedbugs at our old hotel so i dont really know the prices at the hotel. The room we stayed in was allright - not too big but enough for my girlfriend and I. The room could do with some work as there were some spots on the walls. Bed was a little to the...

I spent 5 nights in this hotel. At the beginning was not too bad, good price and good localization. But when you start to asking information you realise the staff are not able to do anything right. I asked to do a laundry, it takes 2 days for 1kg and i had to ask for it more than 10 times....

Perfect location for your stay in HCMC. Very close to the bus station, restaurants, massage places, tourists attractions (Reunification Palace, War Museum, etc. ) Very clean room, sheets and bathroom and maid service every day. Our room on the second floor was very quiet. Accommodating receptionist. Free breakfast with eggs, bread, fruits. Unlimited coffee. Just ask for more if you...

Stayed there for three nights while in HCM. Alright place, comfortable room, AC, TV, fridge... Hot water was not always there, but it's a minor problem. Good location. Helpful staff. Maybe not for a backpacker (our room at least),

It is right on the main street and renting a bike was easy. Bui Vien, the most famous street was 5 min walk distance so was everything else, so full star for the location. We booked through booking website for two nights at $20/night, upon reaching hotel, they had broadly highlighted/poster for same room at $15/night. We had paid $5...

Arrived @ 3am to a nice clean room with fantastic A/C. Stayed for 2 days. Reception was nice and helpful. Great location around the corner from backpackers district. Across the street from the park. Lots of food options close by. A nice, quick breakfast was enjoyed with banh mi close by.

They have hot running water and the room was clean. A little out dated though. The workers were nice and pleasant. No free breakfast but they have good wifi. Location convenient and there is a convenient store near it and a tasty bakery. Overall good value for the hotel.

Stayed there two nights after arriving from Phnom Penh at late night time. Got a deal of USD20 a night on 7th floor as walk-in. Room is reasonably cleaned, flat screen tv, ac and ensuite bathroom, I think it is reasonable. The location is in a street where highway buses departure point to the whole country and neighbouring Cambodia. It...

“On the first floor we overlooked the park and the room had that street hum. It had a dble and single bed and was quite roomy. Our bathroom had a spa which we did not get around to using.All in all it is only 3 star accommodation so some things are bound to be quirky!”
