Breakfast at the Spring Hotel in Saigon (HCM City) is pure delight. There's good drip coffee and a nice array of standard Western offerings complemented by a plate of fresh local fruit. If eggs and bacon begin to bore you, ask for the 'order ahead' menu, which features a wide range of Vietnamese noodle soups and sweet rice dishes that can be 'ordered in' from a nearby restaurant. The hotel's cafe is spotless and service is flawlessly attentive.

For our 'standard' double room, we paid $47 per night, a good price for central Saigon.

The front desk and cleaning staff are also happy to help, as we found out when we decided that we must change our room. #803 had a dark carpet, damp under the desk -- possible place to harbor insects -- and after a bit of juggling we were moved to #105 for the rest of our week at the Spring Hotel. Both rooms were well appointed, with great lighting, but we preferred the arrangement and marble tiled floor of #105. Each room has a self-operated safe for guests' valuables.

There are no vent fans in the bathrooms; thus they are muggy after a hot shower.

The lobby of the hotel is quite pleasant in an over-the-top baroque sort of way.

The Spring is located on a leafy street near Saigon's city center. The area has many Japanese restaurants and bars, as well as long-term apartment hotel rental and other establishments catering primarily to expats. There's a famous live performance theater half a block down the street, the same place also shows international movies organized by Alliance Francais, the French cultural promotion orgnization.

This is an excellent little hotel right in the middle of everything. You can walk to markets, museums, spas, restaurants and the hotel always feels homely when you return from your weary travels. The staff are helpful and all speak English, in varying degrees. The architecture in the hotel is quaint without being daggy. The breakfast was more than enjoyable - once we'd worked out the coffee pots! All in all a very good experience.

We stayed four nights at the Spring Hotel in early November as it was recommended to us by a friend. It didn't disappoint, our room was clean and comfortable and the location was good as it was an easy walk to markets, shops and restaurants.

It was so good to come back 'home' at the end of each day to have the front doors opened for us by the doormen and always with a bright smile. It was even better to feel the rush of cold air hit you when opening the door to your room after a long, hot & humid day.

Breakfast was OK, a lovely plate of fresh fruit each day but the actual menu didn't change, it was omelette for me each day.

Staff were helpful and friendly and we wouldn't hesitate to stay at this hotel again.

I have stayed 3 nights at the Spring Hotel and we loved this place. It is excellent value and close to markets and Vincom shopping centre. The staff went to so much trouble to make our visit to HCMC a positive one. We used their recommendations for everything including restaurants, massage, trip to Mekong Delta etc. they always checked our bags were done up and even suggested we hide jewellery when walking around. There are only 36 rooms and they seem to always be full so I think they are well known. We had standard rooms which were fine and only $USD 42 per night. The deluxe rooms were all booked out but next time for a few dollars more I will try for deluxe. The rooms include a great breakfast and wifi everywhere. Each afternoon we would sit on the rooftop where they had a fabulous garden and amazing view of city. They would give us a thermos of hot water for a cup of tea on the rooftop.These are very kind staff here and we we're so greatful of the care they took to make sure our stay here was a wonderful experience.

Staff are very friendly and helpful. Most staff have been there for a long time which is usually a sign that they enjoy their work and are well- managed. A full Vietnamese breakfast service is available as an alternative to the very ample Western breakfast but needs to be ordered the day before

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel avoid street noise from Le Thanh Ton

We have been overwhelmed with the 5-Star Hotel Service here @ the Spring Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City! Everything from helpful receptionists, doormen, room service & breakfast servers. Not one complaint. If you are looking for an affordable hotel yet want wonderful, friendly, professional service, the Spring Hotel is for you. Pack some extra soap - their bar soap lasts for one shower only. Enjoy your stay!

I stayed in this hotel for one night in January 2011. The hotel is in a good area of Ho Chi Minh, near some of the large hotels and the shopping district. My room was clean and a good size, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was clean and had a good shower. The hotel felt secure and safe. Staff were helpful and there were computers with internet access. The only complaint I had was that I asked about transport to the hotel and they automatically booked me into their transfer service which was much much more expensive than a taxi. They were fine with me saying I wanted a normal taxi though.
