HoSen Boutique Hotel
Ranked #320 of 467 Hotels in Ho Chi Minh City
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

A very narrow hotel on the edge of the city centre, most of the traditional attractions are walking distance. We were allocated a room on the 7th floor with an amazing picture window overlooking the Sheraton and Caravell Hotels. There was damage to the window opener, which was rectified whilst we went for an evening meal. The fun began when we tried to have a bath. The plug was a push-push type but would not close. Reception was contacted (staff English was a bit limited, compared to other hotels on our trip) and we were offered an alternative....which provided 2" of hot water! A further alternative got us a shower, thankfully.
Having repaired our bath for the next day, we again found the bath not plumbed to the drainage system (see Imperial Hotel, Hanoi review).
Breakfasts were not really up to par, and featured some rather quirky combinations.
Staff were generally helpful, but language skills could be improved, and overall, the hotel felt a bit tired.

Stayed: October 2013, traveled as a couple

Stayed here as part of a G Adventures tour. While it wasn't the greatest hotel, it did the job. The room I was in was pretty basic and small. The safe did not work, the room was clean, service was okay (staff did there best with limited English) but I would not stay here again. It's a good location, but there are much better places to stay for the same price.

We stayed 2 nights as part of a tour, rooms were a bit of a let down as the safe didn't work and the bathroom didn't have a shower only a tub.

Overall it was clean, the air-con worked well and staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was limited and a little disappointing.

Would we stay again......No, there are plenty of better options in the awesome HCMC.

Room Tip: Only saw one room and that was just ok so cant really offer any advice sorry.

We stayed here for 2 nights as it was part of a trip we were doing with g adventures. The hotel is basic but OK. The staff was nice and always helpful. Our room was small, but had a great A/C. The bathroom and room were clean. The hotel itself has a great location in district 1 and with the river close by. Loads of restaurants and pubs can also be found in it proximity.

A grubby hotel which stinks of smoke throughout, rooms, curtains, hallways etc. It felt really dirty. Stayed two nights with a tour and was supposed to stay a night independently, but ended up booking a new hotel for the last night as I couldn't stand another one here.

Basic hotel in good location. It was fairly clean and staff were friendly an helpful in advising guests. Didn't particularly enjoy this city as can't walk anywhere even on footpaths without being run over. Breakfast wasn't the best as it was more lunch or dinner food. Wouldn't particularly recommend this hotel to others as there are many others to choose from but didn't personally have the problems others on our tour had (ie cockroaches in room).

This property is dirty and dated. The front desk staff are largely unhelpful; I waited greater than 10 minutes for check in as no one was manning the front desk. There was a lock box in the room, however it was completely inaccessible due to the furniture arrangement. A car air freshener hung in the window (classy) and the bathroom was full of mold. Worst of all during the two days I stayed at this unfortunate establishment, mosquitos were ever present in my room. This hotel was booked through a G Adventures tour, do not stay here if booking on your own.
