“Best value for location at District 1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2011

This hotel is at the District 1 area and it is conveniently walking distance from everything. Vendors set up the night time shopping right across the street from this hotel. This hotel is a family run hotel, and it is not a five star hotel so don't expect so much if you are want a fancy and luxury hotel. The staffs are very friendly and helpful. The room that I had was nothing fancy but clean and decent enough to have a good night rest. You can leave your personal belongings like your passport at the front desk. I locked my important stuffs in my suitcase that left in the room. I never once felt worried about the staffs going through my personal belongings. It was nice to sit outside the hotel while sipping on Vietnamese coffee and people watching.

My favorite thing about this hotel is the free breakfast in the morning. Hotel serves traditional Vietnamese dishes and they even had chicken and beef pho for breakfast. It wasn't the best pho I have ever ate, but how neat is that for free breakfast at a hotel?

We extended our stay in HCMC, but it was fully booked at Phan Lan Hotel where we were staying. One of our friends recommended Thanh Long Tan as he stayed here before. Location is good, very near Ben Tanh Market. However, it is very easy to get lost as the hotel is not very prominent.

Beginning we opted for a regular bedroom. However, the bathroom was dirty and horrible. Moldy and musty, worse than a wet dog! We complained to the front desk and the maid came in and sprayed some sort of cheap rose-fragrant water. Of course, this didn't help at all. We decided to change to a bigger room, paying more money of course. This room was much better, although the carpet and furniture also looked tired and old.

Another horrible experience - we forgot the maps in our room, so we decided to ask the receptionist for a new map. She wanted us to pay for it! When I objected and told us these maps were supplied free, she became very apologetic and became very friendly. We understand that the staff doesn't get paid much, but she shouldn't have tried to rip us off.

There were two security guards/bell-boys who were very nice, friendly and helpful. They even helped serve breakfast. They certainly deserved the big tips we gave them at the end of our stay.
