Help! Viettel store in District 1

Hoping someone can help me! I've been on a wild goose chase for hours!

Does anyone know where there is a Viettel store in District 1? I'm staying at 241 Pham Ngu Lao so the closest one to there is preferable. Google isn't helping me, searching TA isn't helping me and the girl in my guesthouse reception sent me somewhere but I couldn't find it. Please help!

Try 51 Pham Ngu Lao , I saw it on a expats page from 2016.

Ask the receptionist to explain to a taxi driver and get him to take you there is 51 is no good.

I tried the Viettel home site but it doesn't translate the drop down boxes.

Is this for a sim card or top up? You can do these things at Thegioididong phone/computer shop.

I tried 51 pham as I too saw it on that site but I was unable to find it (part of my wild goose chase!).

Yes it's for a new sim. I stupidly didn't get one at the airport now seriously regreting it!

I read that it had to be done at an actual store now not a third party. That's why I'm looking for an actual viettel store...?

"Did you go to 166 Tran Hung Dao, district 1? Take a scooter Uber to get there"

Yes that's where I went. The reception girl gave me the wrong address last time and she then directed me to that address which I found no problems. Didn't need to take an uber, it was only 5 mins walking

For anyone else looking for the official Viettel store it is approx 10 to 15 shop houses from the main entrance to the 5 star Pullman Hotel on Tran Hung Dao Street.

More people know where the hotel is than they know where the Viettel store is including taxi drivers.
