I went to Vietnam for the first time and stayed at this hotel in January. Initially my family and I had reservations at a hotel near Cho Ben Thanh but after the first night, we realized everything around us closed at 10pm and it was too quiet and no signs of nightlife. My uncle then suggested Bizu Hotel, where he has stayed multiple times. First thing i noticed upon arriving at Bui Vien was the busy street full of people, street vendors, restaurants and bars. There were a lot of foreigners (hence the nickname "backpackers district") and everyone spoke english everywhere we went. The hotel was very clean, and quiet (even though my window was right above Bui Vien St) and the employees were so nice and accommodating. I ended up staying in 3 different rooms throughout my stay and i was pleased with all of them. The price was a deal, considering how busy the location is. The staff was so helpful..from calling taxis to checking airline fares or even giving us helpful advice on how to travel within the city. My parents, grandma and uncle ended up switching from their hotel to come stay at this one after seeing how it was when they came to visit. Thank you Kenny, Harry, Kathy, Suri, Vincent and Jenny for making my first visit such a wonderful experience! I am already planning my visit for next year and will definitely be staying here again!!
