“Sweet place”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Stayed on our arrival from the UK. Rooms were just delightful with lovely little touches such as jars of crackers and sweets, amenities tray in bathroom and free coffee, tea and juices on request.
All the staff were just delightful and it was a lovely introduction to Vietnam.
The only downside was there is no lift and lots of stairs to climb with heavy bags and jet lagged legs!

Booked directly stayed here 5 nights with another couple for our 25th wedding anniversary.No issue getting a taxi from the airport to here, I showed the driver the map/address I printed off, yes its down an alley and the families living down there are extremely friendly. The property itself is amazing, away from district 1. We all opted for deluxe rooms and happy with did a little bigger.Brekki you have 3 options, we were lucky enough to have home made spring rolls and Pho for dinner amazing. If you require coffee, tea or juice it will be bought to your room.The coffee was the best we had during our 2 week stay in Vietnam. I can not thank John, Natasha and staff enough for there hospitality during our stay, assisting us in getting sim cards, the local bus (highly recommend)and John's maps with things to do see and eat. We were also very spoilt with flowers on our anniversary. If you do have difficulty with stairs ask for a lower floor when you book. Can not recommend this property enough, we will be back.

The magic of this hotel stems from the graceful and dignified proprietor, Uncle Ha. It may be a little surprising to be asked on arrival where one is going on departure, but this is part of the warmth and intimacy of the hotel; it is as if one has arrived at the home of a close relation. Guests benefit from local intelligence and are guided, advised and protected - for example, they are accompanied through the neighbouring pedestrian alleyways to waiting taxis. The hotel is spotlessly clean, and rooms are smallish but well-appointed.

I booked this hotel through Agoda after reading the positive reviews on Trip Advisor.
Having worked for the hospitality industry for over 15 years, this small charming hotel has got it right on so many fronts that would put the best 5-star chains second.
The owner, Uncle Haa is present each day during breakfast and the entire team seem to embody his temperament, patience, gentle nature and genuine concern and warmth towards their guests.
This lovely haven was a welcome respite from the noise and chaos of the city and I would definitely love to go back to Saigon, only if it were to stay at Ma Maison.

Beside the fact that it is located in a suspect alley, and off a shoddy street - everything was great! The staff there was amazing and very helpful, and the owner is a delight. They might also have some of the best pho for breakfast to boot.

If you don't mind taking a cab everywhere; then this is your place. If you prefer to be walking distance, or just to be able to walk anywhere - stay very far away from this place. Cach Mang Thang Tam is not a walking street at all, and while it is only 4km from district 1 with traffic you are still talking about a 20-40 min cab ride.

We cannot praise this lovely little boutique hotel/B&B highly enough!!

Although located a taxi (or bus) ride out of the centre in District 3 (in an alley just off Cach Mang Thang Tam St.) on the way to the airport, the hotel is quiet, beautifully kept and with all the bits you could possibly have forgotten (and more!) in any of the 12 exceedingly comfortable rooms. The service is second to none! As other reviewers have said - it is like being invited to stay in their home, as a valued friend.

We stayed here for several nights as we toured in and around HCMC. The owner and/or his relatives were always on-hand, warm, friendly and extremely helpful (including writing our destinations down in Vietnamese for us to help with directions etc). We were guided to the local bus-stop on our first excursion, and it was easy to manage after that. Tea/coffee/water/juice was always offered to us on returning (all included, often brought to our room) and the breakfasts are terrific - with local or Western options!

Definitely good value and booking directly with the hotel for the best deals - they can get busy in high season (only 12 rooms!).

We will definitely be going back next time we're in or passing through HCMC!!

Room Tip: Wifi drops off occasionally in higher floor rooms. There are only stairs available (rooms over 4 flo...

We came without reservation and the hotel was unfortunately fully booked. We had a look at one of the single rooms and this is certainly a very nice hotel. The owner was very helpful in helping us to find a place for the night.
