“Hotel with heart”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

This little hotel in the heart of District One is a jewel. Near the Ben Thanh Market, if one likes to walk, many of the major tourist attractions are accessible. There are restaurants beyond number, street vendors galore, and, if one is interested, the high end shops on Dong Khoi are easily walkable.
But you have to hear about the heart. The staff, from the manager to the front desk to the waitress to the maid to the bellmen, all are pleasant and gracious. They all work very hard to ensure that you have a pleasant stay. I know this is a business, they must make money to pay taxes, utilities, wages, etc. , but I sensed a sincerity in their efforts. If they're faking sincerity, they do a really good job.
For what you pay, this hotel is hard to beat.

Room Tip: Try to avoid a room with HVAC compressors on the exterior wall. They are necessary but noisy.

I originally booked the hotel for the nights but extended my stay to seven nights. This up and coming hotel is a great value with the manager taking an active interest in each guest and the quality of service, stay, and value.

My room was very clean, tastefully appointed, and was true to the photos of my biking website. The hotel is quietly upgrading rims and facilities to raise its standard.

The staff was fantastic. I was greeted at the front desk by Julia, Catherine, Nguyet and Nga. All greeted me with warm and friendly smiles and we're helpful for all of my requests. The rooms were well cleaned by Ms. Dung and Philip. The bellman, Max, proved very efficient, knowledgeable, and helpful. The dining room staff, Paula, made certain I was happy with Good hearty food prepared by Ms. Phuong.

Thanks to all of you for a great stay. My Saigon experience was better because of all of your efforts!

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here! Cleans rooms, and the bed comforters were especially comfy. Conveniently located near Ben Thank Market. Very friendly and accomodating staff. Catherine at the front desk was an absolute sweetheart who went out of her way to help make recommendations and give information about the City etc.

All in all, a great deal! Highly recommended for all!

A well located hotel , walk to Ben Than Markets in 2 minutes ! The front desk staff & porters are very polite, friendly and always willing to help. Julia, the front desk girl was very friendly and efficient.
The rooms are clean and serviced daily. Clean linen and towels.
A few maintenance problems in bathrooms, but nothing major.
All in all a comfortable and pleasant stay

Room Tip: Room with balcony is good

Actually booked Little Saigon Boutique hotel and they transferred me to Little Saigon Corner because reason given "rooms located ground floor and too noisy?"..
I was told belongs to same boss.. Actually I think Saigon Corner's location is better than Saigon Boutique..
Located just behind Ben Tanh Market and those who takes "halal" food.. halal street is just next to this hotel.
Staff friendly, wifi working fine from my room.. Room condition is clean but sometimes "no hot shower".. water pressure is also very low..
No LCD tv, only conventional 29" CTV but anyway it works and can received quite a number of channels..

Dear Writer,

Many thanks for your constructive comments and the appreciation of our good location. Yes, Little Saigon Corner Boutique hotel is the same chain as our Little Saigon Boutique Hotel and both are well located in the hub of the center, just a short walk to the Ben Thanh Market.

We just take over this one for the management and of course, there are a lot things that need to be improved and we are committed that we look at our operation everyday and the continuous improvement has been carried out in order to make all of our valued guests' most comfortable & memorable during their trip in Saigon.

Once again, thank you very much for your good thoughts of us and we look forward with pleasure to welcoming you & your friends back with us and you will notice the remarkable improvement on both Hardware & Software soon.

We were sent to this hotel when our original choice, the sister hotel, Little Saigon Boutique hotel had double booked. Our room was cleanish and the bed comfortable but the location is further from the centre where we had wanted to be - a 10 minute walk further from the centre, beyond the Ben Thanh market. Location is ok but not ideal. Breakfast was good. Shower required the dexterity of a surgeon to find a comfortable temperature - a millimetre to the right cold, a millimetre to the left boiling. My wife freaked out on seeing a gecko on the ceiling upon arrival but staff dealt with the offending creature promptly. All staff were friendly but the night staff had very limited English and made a hash of booking a city tour for us. Fortunately there was a good tour operator next door who sorted our city tour within 5 minutes. There is no pool - excuse my optional reference to the pool.

Dear Writer,

Many thanks for your constructive comments & good thoughts of our new managed Little Saigon Corner Boutique Hotel and both Little is under the same management and are well located in the hub of the center and just a short walk to Ben Thanh market ( the symbol of Saigon ).

As the weather in Saigon recently has been the coolest ever and our solar water hot system does not have enough hot water when our guests taking at the same time. We are now changing the bigger Solar Water System now and your next stay with us will definitely have more sufficient hot water for your bathing.

Thank you very much for your good and constructive comments and we look forward to welcoming your family back with us in the soonest.
