Booked after reading the reviews on TA. Duc confirmed very quickly, no problems with check in. Just the dodgy taxi we got from the airport trying to save a few dollars and not getting the hotel transfer. Recomend if it's your first stop in Vietnam get the transfer for $12.
Rooms a big, clean and safe. Close to a lot of bars, shopping, restraunts etc. Staff are very friendly and efficent. Breakfast is basic but good, your in Vietnam and will be snacking all day anyway, so who cares.
The think that really stands out with this hotel is unlike most places in Asia where you feel like you are constantly being scammed one way or another, this place feels like you are getting value for money. They tell you which cabs to catch, how much you should pay for just about anything, the best place to change money etc. It's a good change.
Would definatly recomend this place to anyone looking for budget rooms in Saigon.
