“The Manager is Dead”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Booked through Agoda, we were given the wrong room twice. Sheets were not changed, found many black hairs and pubes. Tiny ants crawling over everything. Could barely walk around the room without falling onto the bed. Safe is easily transportable. Checked out after nobody showed up to change our sheets when we requested. Crazy guy with speech problems refused to give us back our passports when we wanted to leave. Was informed manager had died recently when I asked to speak with him. Hope they find a new one soon, because he is obviously missed.

The hotel is very nice, the location is great and the service is good.
The only bad thing was the breakfast.
I was entitled to: 1 fried egg, 1 drink (to choose between tea, coffea or orange juice which tasted more like orangina with no gas)

Located on the doorstep of the Market, the Halo is in the perfect location and offers really nice accommodation. Prices aren't too bad either. The room was always clean and staff were always friendly. Breakfast is limited but ok. Only 15 minutes from the war museum and other sight seeing places. On a whole, we were very happy with our stay here and recommend this hotel.

We booked this hotel for our first visit to HCM in December 2012. After searching through the net we came across this hotel and after checking the reviews decided to go ahead and make the booking. Even though we had booked the hotel we were worried but alas it was a pleasant surprise! We were thrilled with the choice! From the doorman to the housekeeping staff were very friendly and the service are beyond words.. The room was cozy and comfortable. The toilets were very clean and included a bath tub that was different. A stone's throw to Ben Thahn Market, and there are many fruit stalls and restaurants all within walking distance of the hotel. Would recommend this to anyone visiting HCM.

Room Tip: Request for a room facing the Indoor Garden..

We were looking for clean, locally-owned, value-for-money hotels for our rapid tour of SE Asia. This property fits the bill perfectly.

Located just a few steps from HCM's central market, Ben Thanh and just a 15 minute walk to the War Remnants Museum and Reunification Palace, you couldn't be in a better place. Tuk tuks and taxis are cheap for getting about the city, but make sure the taxi has the meter on at the correct tariff and the tuk tuk agrees a price before you set off.

Room at the Halo are simply furnished with a private shower room & WC. Front desk staff are extremely helpful in finding good places to eat and things to see and do in the city.

The rooms were a bit small but nicely designed, comfortable and clean. Plus, the staff was attentive and helpful, and the hotel itself was only a few minute's walk to Ben Thanh market. I only wish the free breakfast had more variety. Also, the rates we paid were a bit expensive for what the hotel had to offer, but it was good enough.

I stayed there for 3 nights. The room is nice & clean but too small. The bed is comfortable. We have good sleep. The staff is nice, friendly and helpful. The location is convenience, closed to Ben Thanh Market in few steps. We just love the location.

Room Tip: DO NOT take a taxi in the airport, to the city. They All Over Charged about 10USD ! Take a taxi from...
