Wow. As beautiful as the photos are...they simply don't do this place justice. The Silas Robbins house is an excellent place for a getaway, a surprise gift for a romantic partner...or how I used it: as a meeting place to WOW a client. I reserved one of their library rooms for a private multi-hour meeting...and he too was blown away by the setting. When I walked into the Silas Robbins house for the first time, I was overtaken by the immaculate design, the richness of its history and the countless little details (furnishings, art, service touches). I knew immediately I was somewhere special. Olga and the service team can't do enough for you. They are attentive, friendly and make a mean breakfast! ;-)

Words do not suffice to describe this simply elegant ,immaculate and beautiful inn. Stepping in the front door is like stepping back in time. But before you enter you are awed by the magnificent grounds. Not one detail is overlooked in this Inn. All decor is gorgeous—the breakfast room is beyond charming with the most lovely fireplace. Lace table clothes and fresh flowers on every quaint table. Breakfast was excellent - a copious and artfully arranged fresh fruit cup was opener followed by eggs, bacon and waffles or pancakes. Coffee , tea and juice also provided. The Jane Robbins room was an oasis of comfort/ the cooling hues of blue and cream along with a free standing tub in the bathroom. The other rooms are equally delightfully appointed. Olga and Dimitry were kind , gracious and welcoming hosts. We will be sure to visit this divine inn again! We can’t thank our hosts enough for the fantastic weekend we spent there.

My wife and I had a fantastic few days at the Silas W Robbins House. We booked this gorgeous B&B as a last minute spontaneous weekend getaway and ended up staying a couple extra nights due to the overall beautiful and peaceful atmosphere. As soon as you drive up to the hotel you can't help but be impressed by the historic architect of the hotel. Upon arrival we were met at the front door by our lovely host Olga who was both very polite and professional.  Our room was spacious and very clean. No fault could be found in the room. Breakfast in the morning was a great experience. The staff couldn't do enough for you. Nothing was too much trouble. The location was amazing. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted from the B&B - about 2-3 blocks to the main street in town. We will definitely be returning here in the near future and would recommend it to anyone who is visiting the area.

I can't recommend this bed and breakfast enough. Every part of the experience was lovely. The owners are extremely polite and attentive to your needs, and the place is spotless. The house is so beautiful and like stepping back in time, and the beds were very comfortable. You're also a quick walk from the Main street area where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. Also, the three course breakfast in the morning was delicious. I will absolutely be going back again!

We stayed at Sila for 12 nights while on business in Vietnam. I have stayed here a number of times and it never disappoints. The appartment was complete with bedroom, sitting room kitchen and fantastic bathroom. Excellent bed. Lovely touches throughout. Great towels, toiletries and manchester. Clean, beautifully maintained. Professional yet personal service at front desk. Great gym. Well stocked minimart inside. Excellent restaurant. Huge selection for breakfast. Exvellent evening meals. First class chef. Very well located, just outside of the noisy city, but close enough if thats your thing. This is the place to stay in Saigon. Seemless, fuss free, clean and friendly. Couldnt ask for more.
