The location is along an alley, parallel to the main tourist area in Pham Ngu Lao.
A taxi from the airport dropped us off here. There's a really popular street restaurant in the alley. Walk past it and the hotel is tucked in on the left.
The staff are beyond helpful. Marc, the general manager, couldn't do enough for us. He booked trips for us, gave us advice, was always smiling and checking we were ok. I was so hungover one day after we checked out, he let me nap on the sofa hogging the fan all afternoon! We were getting a ferry to Vung Tao later in our trip and because it isn't a very touristy destination he booked the ferry tickets for us and then gave us a lift there to make sure we were ok.
We returned to Saigon 3 times and stayed here each time as we loved the location. Just round the corner to Pham Ngu Lao, walking distance to all of the tourist attractions in the area, but off the main road and very quiet at night. The rooms are extremely clean and well maintained. We had breakfast one day and it was ok, but there's so many cheap restaurants outside the door we preferred to eat out and paid for room only on the next 2 stays.
There are lots of mini hotels in a small area here and before booking we couldn't really discenr between them. You could probably stay at cheaper places but this had everything you could need with a fridge, TV, free wifi and air con in the room. Loved it!
