“Great value and comfortable stay in the disreputable Pham!”
Reviewed June 8, 2010

I hated 'The Pham' or 'Pham Ngu Lao' which is the infamous sleazy backpacker and sex tourist drag in District 1 Saigon. From what I understood, many of the budget hotels in this area are as horid as the local bars. The Beautiful Saigon 2 hotel therefore came as a really pleasant surprise. You walk in through the restaurant, up an unremarkable staircase, then into an impecabbly clean and well maintained room with all mod cons. Our room had full AC, TV, desktop PC with free of charge broadband. Breakfast was great too. In short, if your drawn to Pham Ngu Lao, make it Beautiful Saigon 2.

I stayed for three nights and was very satisfy with the hotel ( for what I've never expected from the small hotel ). Eventhough there was some noisy from the construction around,they also stopped noise at night. Overall,the BHS2 is valuable what I paid for.

Been to many hotels in HCMC as i'm a frequent traveler there and Beautiful Saigon II is definitely the best in it's class around the area....
Love the ambiance and the unique charm the hotel has to offer together with the clean rooms and reasonable priced restaurant the hotel has to offer, it made my trip a memorable one.

Good central location, but remarkable quiet. Good price . We paid $37US for a large room, queen and a king single. flat panel TV and internet in room. Mini bar prices were reasonable. on 4 floors so having no lift is not an issue

The hotel is in a little lane just off Bui Vien st, we booked a standard room and on arrival were upgraded, they gave us a room on the first floor with a double and a single bed - yipee but it was really hot when we arrived and we woke about 1.00 am to a black out and nearly died from the heat in our room. We worked out that we were in the room above the kitchen and a lot of heat was coming up through the floor. The next day we asked could we have the standard room, which is on the top of the building and it was no bother what so ever, they moved our luggage and checked everything was suitable. The standard room was great, good, clean and spacious and it was on the opposite side of the building to the nightclubs so at night it was lovely and quiet.

was very impressed with the included computer, and the flat screen tv, plus the menu was extensive and food was good. the room was still reasonably compact, as they tend to be in this district, but it felt very modern and clean.

staff were really lovely and one guy even came running out after us when we'd left, to return me my headphones that I had forgotten in the room.

discovered the place by accident after having breakfast in the lobby and noticing the great standard of the place. wish we had known about it sooner - it was far better and cheaper than the place we had stayed in previously.

My friend and myself stayed several nights in this hotel in the deluxe room with private balcony, computer, fruit basket, kettle etc. and enjoyed the nice ambience/room design, the super cleanliness and the great service. We paied 42$/night fully worth it.
Ontop thanks to it's location - right in the heart of the back packers district, it is central yet as it is located in a small alley, without car traffic and hardly any motos it is much quieter then e.g. it's "sister hotel" the beautiful saigon 1 where I also stayed 1 night. the set up is similar yet beautiful saigon 2 is my personal favourite.
