“Excellent choice near to the airport”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for its proximity to the airport and weren't expecting much but we were pleasantly surprised.

The staff were friendly and welcoming and gave us good recommendations for somewhere to eat as well booking us a taxi very early in the morning. As we waited for the taxi he was chatty and even taught us some essential Vietnamese phrases.

Everything in the room was entirely adequate, clean and comfortable although a little outdated. AC worked very well.

Don't expect utter luxury or a view from your bedroom but do expect value for money and friendly service from this very simple hotel near to the airport.

There is a fridge downstairs to purchase drinks or you can venture to a local supermarket in this very safe and quiet area. There are also some local bars and karaoke joints.

Stay here if your flight is a late arrival or early departure.

Stayed April 2013, traveled as a couple

I stayed here for one night before flying to Honk Kong. I was attracted by the price and proximity to the airport.

The one imperative that a hotel should provide is a good night's sleep. Unfortunately, Thien Vu did not deliver this one basic service. My flight was at 11:00am, so I was anticipating a solid eight hours of sleep before heading out to the airport at 9:15. Instead, I was awoken by the neighbor's roosters at the crack of dawn. Not only was noise a problem, but the window (a single pane of plastic coated in a blue film) did not have blackout curtains. Consequently, the room was well lit at 6:15am. To top it off, the pillows were hard foam.

Other aspects of my stay that detracted from the experience: the main light and the fan were wired to the same circuit (no fan without the light being on); the water pressure in the shower was low.

On a good note: the AC worked well, the wifi was adequate, and the staff were friendly and spoke good English.

The room was clean, bright, comfortable. The staff was very nice & helpful. The price was reasonable. The location was very convenient: close to shops, restaurants & the airport. It would be perfect if the hotel had an elevator. After 33 years of staying in Canada, this was the 1st time I had returned to visit my homeland & I found my stay at Thien Vu was very homey.

Good location for early flights as it is close to the airport. Rooms are generally clean and very basic. It was fine for us for one night. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Very cheap - you get what you pay for.

booked this hotel through ebookers uk and we were surprised what you get for your money.and instead of 2 nights we stayed here for a week..
because it's tucked away in a residential area and quite a distance from all the tourist spots you really feel you are in vietnam. stuff was very very good and helpful. rooms were spotless.daily clean towels. lots of good food around but not much english spoken. we will definitely come back here to stay.

My first time out of the United States was made appreciably better by my having stayed at the Thien Vu Hotel. The hotel's ammenities, etc may be "3-star basic", but the staff, service, cleanliness are all literally 5-star. Being a "needy" person, lol, I relied heavily on the hotel owners (the Tran family) & their gracious staff for everything from food, hydration, directions, calling for taxis--and just great human interaction. And all of this w/ me knowing 2 words of Vietnamese--Xin Chao (Hello) and Tam Biet (Goodbye), I found the location nicely centrally located; just short taxi trips to airport or downtown tourist district or the orphanage in the Go Vap district I spent (life-changing fulfilling) time at each day. The price for all this was shockingly low in my opinion and the best value I've ever experienced.

I'm counting down the days (under 3 months!) until I return to visit my friends at the Go Vap Orphanage--and to see all my friends at the Thien Vu Hotel!
