“Can get a better hotel for the same price”
Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is Ok... nothing greatly wrong with it but nothing amazing about it either.

I had 2 rooms and they were both clean with rather ancient bathrooms. We chose the window less room to avoid any noise from the street. I had a shower curtain in one room and not the other. same for air conditionning. The walls are pretty thin so you hear people moving arround early in the morninf. The staff is more on the unfriendly side.

As I said, it's Ok but nothing to write home about.

Stayed one night as part of an Intrepid tour (breakfast not included). Had been in HCMC for 3 nights and our previous hotel was better in every way to say this was supposed to be a more upmarket one. We were on the top floor and had no window so it was dingy. There were a couple of power cuts so we were in pitch black but luckily they didn't last long. The laundry is on the same floor, runs all night and is incredibly noisy. My friend in a neighbouring room complained to reception at 2am as he could not sleep and the staff could not have cared less.

The room was not very clean, really dusty and it looked like all the dirt just got swept under the bed. The toilet was stained brown and looked like it had never seen a cleaning product.

The hotel was near the market but we preferred to be nearer the bars and restaurants. There are much better places in better locations for less money than this place.

Stayed December 2012, traveled as a couple

Stayed here in October 2012 as part of the Intrepid Vietnam Discovery trip. I stayed the night before the trip started in a deluxe room and then changed rooms when the intreprid trip started. I didn't notice a great deal of difference between the different room standards, although the first night included breakfast which was decent for a hotel in this price bracket in Asia. This hotel was pretty well located, very close to the Ben Tranh market and less than ten minutes walk to the Hotel De Ville and central area.

Actualy i had booked the White Hotel but then when we went to the hotel they inform us that no booking under my name, even do we hav shown our email booking they refuse to accept since the reservation manager that reply my email already resign, unlucky the hotel is fully booked. they send us to the next door which is Hong Thien Loc 2 Hotel, Stay at this hotel quite noisy sometime you can hear people walking outside the door, but something good for this hotel my room have 1 computer even do it’s not that strong wifi at least something you can Google …not that bad. Their room service quite good everyday they clean our room beside that the bell boy quite friendly but then the front desk area slightly small. Located walking distance to Ben than Market. Overall is just average.

Stayed at this hotel as part of an intrepid 'basic' trip. Hotel was very noisy, lift was broken, stairwell was crammed full of housekeeping stuff and furniture. Room had air-cond that worked but walls were dirty, linen looked old and/or grubby and the bathroom was dodgy.

Room Tip: Spend a bit more if you can, there a lots of better hotels in this area.

At the heart of the city, so you can walk to most places with helpful staff. The rooms are what you'd expect at this price.

Stayed here as part of a tour. Didn't expect anything fancy, and it wasn't. Had a basic room which had no window, but it had aircon so that was a bonus. The only thing about this hotel was the noise. You could hear everything going on in the rooms next door, and some of the showers were broken. But if you just want a room, this is perfect
