“a basic stay”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

This hotel provides basic amenities and is pretty decent for a family stay. It has a strict policy during my stay and charged USD5 for an extra person per night.

There were so many hotels alike nearby Ben Thanh providing the same basic amenities but the only reason I picked this hotel among the others is because every room has window and balcony, which not all hotel at the Ben Thanh area can provide.

Service is mixed among the staff. One tall staff was friendly and we were fortunate he was the one welcoming us when we checked in and helping us when we checked out. The other one, probably the manager was not so friendly and lack the most basic attribute a hotel staff could ever own. A smile.

If your goal of visiting Ho Chi Minh city is shopping, then this is the correct hotel as it is only 3-minute walk from Ben Thanh market.

Three doors up from the Ben Thanh market this was a great base for exploring the market area and the balcony gave an excellent view of all the stall holders arriving for the night market. Room was clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony, was great to sit and watch the traffic go past. Was a little noisy at...
