Reviewed July 10, 2014

We stayed at this hotel on our last night in Vietnam so we did not put much effort in researching a good hotel, plus hotels here are more expensive than anywhere else in Vietnam. We were surprised to find a cozy hotel, clean, and with a helpful staff.

I asked for a room overlooking the laneway market after reading other reviews and I'm glad I did. Watching the traders setting up was a great start to the day. Cat Huy is great value for money if you like a clean, spacious room, friendly helpful service, and good location without the frills. Breakfast was below average but over all I'd stay here again.

I have stayed at the Cat Huy Hotel twice, two years apart. My second visit only reinforced my original thoughts that this is a great place to stay. Booking was easy, the staff are pleasant and helpful, the rooms are clean and quiet and it is in a terrific location just off Bien Vieu. It is excellent value with breakfast included - I recommend the Pho. I would stay there again if I ever get back to Ho Chi Minh City. I did pay an extra couple of dollars for a room with a balcony. Definitely worth it if you are staying more than one night.

You can't expect a whole lot for a hotel at this price in the middle of the busiest tourist spot in Ho Chi Minh City. The good:

Clean room
Quiet (can be bad as well - read on)
Working wifi
Helpful, English-speaking staff
Safe
Working electric shower

The bad:
Although the room was clean, there was a smell in the room which wasn't great
Access to the hotel is through a small lane which, at night, will be very dark, quiet and can be intimidating and possibly unsafe for some

If you choose this hotel, it is difficult to find. Check out the photos on Google maps of the area. The lane is right beside some street stalls. Try this link: https://www.google.ie/maps/@10.7672,106.689679,3a,50.8y,132.41h,90.07t/data=!3m5!1e1!3m3!1svKNIe7lFBa0AAAGuolDUUQ!2e0!3e11

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room close to the wifi router. If you're not happy with the room - just ask...

The place is ok, clean and tidy. The staff there were very helpful and friendly. For the price i paid, i think this is great. If i may stay in this same hotel again, its all because of the friendly people there. The Air conditioner was not very cold though, and the street outside was a bit messy, but again, for the price i paid, i think this is good.

We spent 3 nights in the Cat Huy Hotel. The location couldn't be better, "a quiet residential street" (yes, really) that gets the overspill from the local food market - meaning every morning there is ultra-fresh fruit, vegetables and meat for sale just outside the door - yet a few alleys away from the backpacker's area with it's good, cheap cafes and easy walking distance (if you don't have the $2 taxi fare) from most of the city's main attractions. Our room on the 5th floor (no lift) was very quiet, clean, comfortable and modern with good air-conditioning and large windows and a small balcony overlooking the street. The service was faultless, from our midnight check-in (Mr Danh, the night reception, was particularly helpful and friendly) to our 6PM check-out for the cost of an extra half-day.

Room Tip: Choose a high-up room for more peace and quiet, or a lower room if you don't want to climb so ma...

This hotel feels very homey. We stayed for only one night but was the best place in our entire trip in the price range of $20-30. Very good location. I really appreciated the space and cleanliness. Just feels nice and pleasant.
Advise: 1.a little hard to find off the main road so do your research prior to arrival.
2. If you can offord it, book the delux room it has a giant king size bed, lovely living area & small balcony.
3. If you ever need a snack, this hotel is very close to the shop that sells the BEST Banh Mi in Vietnam!!! Its only 5min walk away. The shop's name is Huynh Hoa. Address: 26 Le Thi Rieng St.
Enjoy!:)
