Reviewed September 2, 2013

All I can say that this hotel is excellence!!!!! Friendly, honest and helpful staff. They are most willing to an extra mile to provide their services. The location is ideal as food and pubs are nearby within reach. A safe hotel to stay both for couples and family. I strongly recommend those who are first timers visit to Saigon. It s also value for money. I must mentioned that Receptionist Cindy is truly an ambassadress for Saigonmini hotel. I will definitely go back to stay if ever my next visit s Saigon. No regrets.

Room Tip: All rooms in Saigonmini is good and clean.

It was our first trip to hcmc n my boyfriend n I cant wait to visit the place again. Saigon Mini 5 is one of the main reasons why we will do so.

It is conveniently located within walkable distances to multiple attractions and the staff there were really helpful and could speak reasonable english which made our trip alot easier. We were given a free upgrade to a premium room upon arrival and the check in procedures was a breeze. There's also the best bbq street hawker stall right outside the hotel (bbq is best with saigon beer!)

The rooms are clean n well equipped with the necessities. I was really impressed with the room service, replacing the faulty hairdryer without us prompting for it. Its really the nitty gritties that makes the difference.

Would definitely recommend to anyone who is visiting hcmc for the first time or anytime! We believe that having a good n comfortable rest is really impt when going on a trip and there is no better place than Saigon Mini 5!:)

Thank you for making our vietnam trip so memorable!

Overall excellent experience. Hotel is located in a bustling side street within reasonable walking distance to all of the major sights. Price was reasonable and the room was large, clean and air-conditioned. Our room faced the street on the second floor, but noise was minimal.

The hotel staff (especially Ms. Cindy!) were very helpful and friendly, and there are two free-to-use computers in the lobby with internet.

Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Only saw one room, but it was very spacious and clean.

Excellent value for price and hotel category.
Very good and personal service.
Good location if you like to enjoy night life.
Choose deluxe room with city view. Lower categories only if you dont mind to have a very small room without window/view.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are with city view, windows soundproof. Lower category rooms are very small.

Room is a bit small, dark and quite expensive for that.
Nice staff, located near Five Oyster where real Vietnamese cuisine. Quiet and clean. Depends on purpose to stay then I would recommend.
Laundry service is expensive compare to the next door laundry service

Hotel staff is very responsive, accommodating and friendly. Prior to the trip i've had a couple of email exchanges with the staff and they provided swift and detailed responses. They provided good recommendations on food/shopping as well.

We took a quadruple room with 2 double beds, room was nice, quiet and comfy. The only downside was that the shower had weak current.

Hotel breakfast is at USD2 per person, seats are rather limited so you might want to go early for breakfast. Do give the street food a try, right outside of the hotel there are pretty yummy Banh Mi and Pho stalls that are open early in the morning.

Bui Vien street is very happening and exciting at night - cheap beers and the delicious street treats must not be missed!

It's very convenient to hail a taxi right in front of the hotel (Vinasun or Mai Linh) and they are reliable and cheap. The hotel taxis are slightly more pricy and the driver who took us to the airport firmly requested for a VND100,000 tip and refused to take anything lesser.
