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.
