“Awesome Receptionist”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

My phone got pick pocketed on the streets and the during that whole period, the hotel receptionist lady ( i did not get her name) was very kind to help me out throughout the whole incident. From going to the police station to getting the police report for me. Her warm hospitality made me feel less anxious and worried.

I think that this hotel has gotten a great bunch of staff :D

Thanks for everything !

Room Tip: My room had a draining problem. Room 801 avoid that room if possible, otherwise it is all good :D

This hotel is now called Zen Lapaz Hotel. It is rather old with small rooms. The first room we were assigned had a defective sink that drains to the floor, we later transferred to another room but this time the sink does not drain at all! Maintenance is not a top priority here. They include breakfast here but you might want to skip this and go to some restaurant for your breakfast. Don't expect any buffet, they will just make you pick from a post card size menu of very few choices.
I find the location very good with walking distance to major tourist attractions in Saigon - The Reunification Palace, War Memorial and shopping areas if you are hunting for bargains - Saigon square and Ben Thanh Market. The staff do take extra measures to please. They have wifi and flatscreen tv.
Overall, if all you need is bed to lie down after a day of travelling, this might serve you if you are conscious of your budget.

This hotel is a great place to stay, it's right at the heart of the night-life area of Saigon, close to everything. Just one step outside and you have nice restaurants (VNmese, Japanese, Italian, Indian...) and thousand of convenient stores, some nice place to do shopping, some great places to dance and drink. You cannot find another nice place with this price!

The room is clean and spacious and the price is amazingly cheap for such a place and location. Breakfast was ok, you have a selection of pho (traditional VNmese noodle soup with beef or chicken), omelet with sandwiches comes with coffee and fresh fruits.

Definitely I'll stay here again!
