“Depends on your room”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

I stayed here twice with a friend at the beginning and end of our trip. The first room had a window, and was plenty large for the two of us and our bags. The television had a number of English channels, and we had a good wifi signal. However, on our second stay, our room was much smaller, to the point where we needed to tetris to make everything fit on the floor. The television wasn't hooked up properly so we only had 7 or 8 channels, none of which had English. And the wifi didn't reach our room.

HOWEVER, both rooms were very clean, had deadbolt locks, air-conditioner, and spacious bathrooms (and there is wifi in the lobby). The staff was pleasant and incredibly attentive. They held our bags for us for free, even though our flight wasn't until midnight. My friend's bag was stolen and one of the front desk girls came to the police station across the city to help us file a report in Vietnamese. I would absolutely stay here again.

The main attraction is that it is close to the airport - good if you just have a overnight layover. Rooms were clean; reception was efficient and spoke English. Wifi worked.

The one problem we had was the taxi driver could not find the place, and then had no change when it came to paying the fare - normal things to happen when arriving late at night in a new country!

It is expensive for what you get - although USD32 cannot really be judged to be expensive!.

Stayed overnight when I couldn't get on my original flight. It's a short taxi ride from the airport, at around 30,000 VND - which is like 1.5 USD. Room is clean and spacious with some minor hiccups. Some light bulbs didn't work, the doorknob on the bathroom's door is missing, so you couldn't really lock it. Free breakfast is provided - on a separate location in a restaurant 100 m away from the hotel. Experienced a LOT of power interruptions when I was there, was out of electricity for 5-6 hours maybe, what a hassle.

I would like to think that if I had time to look, I would have found a much nicer hotel for the price I paid.

We took a day room here during a long gap between flights. It's five minutes from the airport.
Unlike some other reviewers we thought the room seemed clean enough but I was glad we weren't staying here. The room was pretty sparse with pretty few facilities. There was air-con, tv and a minibar - but no kettle. Too far from the city centre to be worth it. It's not expensive but probably not cheap enough for what it is.

We've switched 3 different rooms and all 3 were dirty. Hotel is not clean and has no breakfast. There are two advantages: location (10 minutes walking to airport) and fast internet. Everything else is very basic.

This hotel is close to the airport so great for overnight connections - 50,000 dong from airport. Beware, taxi drivers will try to get much more than that.
This hotel is nice and clean and the price is right. Our flight got in at 10:15 a.m. so we were to the hotel early for check-in but they had our rooms ready - bonus!
The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was new.

Con: No window in room (306) & the rooms are VERY small

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room with a window if this is something you need.
