“Good place for central HCMC”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

My room was small and had only a tiny window in the shower room. But it was very clean and well-maintained.

Breakfast was in top floor restaurant with great views. Good selection of eastern and western choices in buffet.

Friendly, helpful service in reception and restaurant.

Wifi worked fine throughout hotel.

Great location for bus station.

Located at Pham Ngu Lao street, the hotel is exactly what I need everytime I am in HCM. It is just a walk away from the Sapaco bus station. The room is clean, spacious and elegant. The restaurant is at the 9th floor that offers a good view of the city, although it is only open for breakfast. The staff are courteous.

This is a reasonably good hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The three rooms that I stayed in throughout the stays I had whilst travelling were perfectly fine. The bathrooms could have been cleaner, but that's what I expected anyway. If you want a quiet room, ask for one at the back of the hotel, although you'll be without a window. The 2 rooms at the front were noisier, especially when the music started for morning exercise in the park and the hawkers selling food. The wifi in the rooms was free and worked pretty well. I would be happy to stay there again.

After reading about this hotel on Trip Advisor, I was concerned, but once i arrived to check this Hotel out, I was pleasantly surprised. While to room was small, it was clean, no concerns with bedding and everything in the bathroom worked. The hotels wifi worked really well, even up in my room, and the transfer I organised the following morning to the airport, was there on time. Hotel was in a great area, with plenty of restaurants in close proximity, and the night market is a couple minute walk down the street.

We stayed here 4 nights total.

The location of Pham Ngu Lau is right in the middle of the tourist area, be prepared for being hassled everywhere you go once outside the hotel.

The hotel itself was clean, it seems they've now changed their name to Hotel La Felix. The staff are friendly and knowledgable enough. The room was clean and roomy, enough for a couple to retreat to and relax away from the hot city. The bathroom was neat and tidy.

The breakfast was included in our stay, along with Internet access. The breakfast was a mix of east and west but very basic - we opted to sample the local culinary for the remainder of the time.

My only gripe - and I must stress no fault of the hotel themselves - was the 5am morning exercise routine regularly conducted at the park across the road... 100+ locals all dancing to insane repetitive techno / trance music is not how I expected to be woken each day.

Nice hotel, room was a little cramped. Wifi and English channels in room. Buffet style breakfast on roof top which was nice. Location was pretty good too. Couldn't fault it except room cramped and there was nothing that special about it.

The photographs, rating on Agoda, everything about this hotel is misleading. The free breakfast is an insult. The rooms, smaller than they are made to appear and dirty. The reception area feels like a cheap massage parlor on the streets of Bangkok. You CANNOT walk on the street below at night without being pestered by pimps and hawkers alike. The only saving grace is its close to everywhere and the staff try their best to help you. Don't trust the photographs and treat it like a passable B&B and you would not come out feeling bad, because IT IS a cheap place.

Room Tip: Don't if you can. Or else, move higher up.
