“Don't go anywhere else! Home away from home!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 4 nights and would go back in a heartbeat. The owner Anne greeted us and let us check in earlier than normal free of charge given we had got off the night train, she provided us with a map on arrival and showed us all the key places to go. It's within walking distance of all the top attractions and close to all pubs and restaurants.

Anne and her husband are like a mother and father away from home ... Such lovely people.

Rooms are a good size and clean... I could not recommend this enough... Please stay here ... Look nowhere else!

We booked to stay here via email for the first and last nights in Vietnam. The answer was very prompt and friendly. 

However, on the first night we were placed at a relative's  guesthouse a few doors from Diep Anh. No complaint here, it was clean, decent sized room, with a big window ( heavy iron grill) and with a lift- very convenient if you have a heavy luggage. 

The last night saw us at Diep Anh on the third floor. Anh's husband helped us with the luggage. Appreciate that.

The couple was very helpful, giving us advice, directions, and did some of the bookings for us. The place itself is very clean, decent sized room, with decent blankets and beds, TV, and a fridge. One has to be a bit careful in the bathroom as it has no dry area. It could be slippery if you splash your shower.

 If you are an early bird, and want to get out before six in the morning, you need to inform either Anh or her husband, as the main gate is locked during the night like everywhere else in the area. (I am not sure whether there is a fire escape, but a lot of small guesthouses in both Hanoi and the Ho Chi Minh City don't. If this matters to you, please ask them)

Though no breakfast is provided, the main fresh food market with a few breakfast stores  is very near. It is also located on a small lane with small street restaurants and groceries. If you prefer even cheaper juices etc., about a ten minute walk-just beyond the main fresh food market, will see you at a big and busy "Co-Op Mart.

All the main tourist buses to other parts of Vietnam and Southeast Asia leave from this area- Pham Ngu Lao, District One. Travel agencies are everywhere.

Extremely welcoming, clean and central. Great food and bars within 2 mins but quiet rooms. We stayed first and last nights of our trip. Helpful advice on local buses/xe om/taxi and prices!

We arrived very early in the morning from an overnight UK flight. The locals helped us find it - it's down an alley and we were a bit fazzed by the numbering system. We checked in within 30mins to an AC double room for 24$ - paid direct.

Local bus from airport drops you within 4 mins walk, 10 000 dong, person plus bag, No 152 - make sure you have change when you get on otherwise you will get a pocket of coins that can't be used anywhere but on Saigon buses!

Room Tip: Rooms at the front face the alley and have a small balcony but locals go to bed early so not noisy...

We just stayed two nights at Diep Ann guesthouse in HOh chi minh saigon.
The beds are comfortable, the rooms cosy and clean and modern!!!

But the much more important is the very nice atmosphere in the guesthouse. Our guesthouse "parents" are very very very nice and unbelievable helpful!

Take the chance and spend some nice in this guesthouse with the nicest atmosphere!

Me and my friends went there twice. Its a funny guesthouse because they have rooms in more than one accommodations.
The rooms i saw were different. The cheaper one was a bit tiny but clean and had good wifi.
The more expensive one (just 2 dollars more) was brandnew, topmodern and huge.
The hostfamily was super cute. They did everything for us and made really good recommendations for sightseeing or restaurants. You can really trust them!
We could even have a shower in their private bathroom before we left to the airport...;)
Beware, in the red lonely planet guidebook the map is wrong!!!

If you're going to Ho Chi Minh city on a bit of a budget then this is the place to stay! Wonderful clean rooms with tv, fridge, air con and big bed. The hosts are such lovely and friendly people they showed us everywhere we should visit in the area and booked all our tours and bus tickets for us. Do the cu chi tunnel trip with them the guide is an absolute legend. Excellent location as well as its just around the corner from almost everything you'd need. You can even buy drinks from the here cheaper than at the shops! I will definitely recommend this place to anyone and my friends and family. Thank you for such a nice stay :)

Most definitely the most helpful, friendly place we stayed in throughout Vietnam.
The rooms are lovely, the facilities great, and location is perfect! Fantastic value for money!!
Our trip from Nha Trang to Ho Chi Minh was disastrous as I became very ill. We arrived at Diep Anh at about 4am, so unfortunately had to wake up the owners in the middle of the night, the lady came to the door and was so unbelievably sweet and welcoming even at 4am! By about 8am I needed to go to hospital and again the owners were so helpful, and got us in a taxi, agreed a price and told the taxi driver to take us to the hospital, I spent 4/5 days in the hospital of which 3 nights our bags were being looked after by the guest house, they were so understanding and emailed by boyfriend throughout to check on my progress and assure us our bags were fine.
Once out of the Hospital we did eventually make it to the guest house and stayed there a further 3 nights. They were always smiling and willing to give you as much information as you wanted!
I am so thankful that in a rubbish situation we had such an amazing guest house to return to. :) thanks Diep Ahn
