Diep Ahn is a great family run guest house located on a quiet lane in the main backpacker area. We booked a double room and ended up with a room with two doubles and a balcony for no additional charge. The bathroom facilities were modern and clean, the bedroom was spacious and bright, overlooking the buildings between Bu Vien and Pham Ngu Lao (we were on the fourth floor). The rooms on the opposite side of the building don't have balconies but do have windows overlooking the other side of District 1.
The owners were lovely and looked after us well, pointing us in the right direction for train bookings and other queries. Unlike some other guest houses in Vietnam, they were not pushy with the tours and were more concerned that we got the best price for what we were after. The drinks they sold at reception were also very reasonable, which again was a refreshing change. We ended up staying two nights more than we planned because we liked the place so much. We also loved HCMC and found the place relatively harassment free and cheaper (as a tourist) compared to the other stops on the main tourist trail. Even though the guest house is located in the backpacking district there are some great little street stalls that pop up at night in the surrounding streets - it's just a matter of watching where the locals go.
We are now close to ending our time in Vietnam and this was by far our favourite guest house. I couldn't recommend this guest house highly enough!
