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...

Driver caught during the theft! After this he refused to take me on! Friends, be careful! I travel a lot and...

A pretty fancy hotel with a funny Indochinese decor. The location is nice, next to the main tourist streets, without hearing any noise on the 5th floor. The rooms are pretty clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. I guess there are cheaper options, but this is an safe choice for a reasonable budget.

It was only me and a friend. We stayed here for 4 days 3 nights. On morning of our 3rd day we gave our room key to the guy at the reception for housekeeping expecting the room to be cleaned. By the time we got back at around 530pm, we were told by the very same guy at the reception...

“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!”
