“Din phucking awesome”
Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

Amazing hotel, staff always open the door with a smile even at 3am after a hectic
Night at apocalypse now. Rooms are large and clean with a mini bar equipped with the finest beers of saigon . Would recommend this place for any backpackers seeking a little luxury at a reasonable price

This hotel was comparable to others in the same price range that we stayed in during our trip to Vietnam. The market is very close to the hotel, and you are also within walking distance to the museums and other buildings of interest. The staff was helpful but not overly in your face. The shower head is weird and does tend to get stuck, but it can be fixed. Breakfast was the only disappointment. Mostly Asian choices (that turn out super greasy) and horrible coffee. Why advertise "Vietnamese" coffee if you're really serving instant? Overall a pleasant hotel that I would recommend for the price.

Room Tip: Our room was on the street side of the hotel and could be awfully noisy. It was also on the first f...

Our family of 5 stayed here for just one night in December 2012. Very happy with our choice for a short stay. The hotel has limited facilities but it's very good value. The hotel is in an old building but seems to have been extensively renovated. Our room was huge, modern and very clean, with a new bathroom and spa bath. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the Vietnamese breakfasts are good. And unlike many multi-storey buildings in Vietnam, it has an external fire exit which is good for peace of mind when travelling with small kids.

The hotel is set right in a commercial area so there's not a lot for tourists around the immediate location, but Ben Thanh market is only a 5 minute walk away. Taxis are cheap and plentiful if you don't like the idea of crossing 8 lane roads with small kids in tow. There's also a park very close by with outdoor gym equipment and a playground to occupy the kids.

This was our first hotel in Vietnam and we stayed for 3 nights. First impressions were of an extremely friendly and helpful staff and a very clean and quite spacious room.
The beds are extremely hard (as was often the case in Vietnam), it is not a quiet hotel by any means (again not unusual in Vietnam) and the breakfasts are on the poor side (but this IS Vietnam).
Initially we tried to find a restaurant which did not involve crossing the road which is in itself a terrrifying prospect - but in Saigon you can't just live on one side of the street and since there are no bridges or underpasses for pedestrians or even traffic lights then playing chicken with the scooters is the only option. Fortunately they don't go very fast and if you leave them to avoid you (rather than the contrary) then you soon become accustomed to this crazy traffic.
Sure there are better hotels than Dinh Phat but very few better-value hotels - we paid €351 for 2 large rooms for 3 nights - it was the cheapest hotel by far during our 2 weeks stay.

First of all the location is pretty bad with out being awful... there are no decent restaurants around its about 10 minutes walk to the backpacker area with hundreds of places to eat and a long walk in different direction to palace and museum and shopping centres... so you would expect this place would be cheaper but its not.

The rooms are plain but have everything you need except the bed which is like cement, i found it hard to sleep and would wake up with sore ribs.

Breakfast is only available until 9am and is very basic.

I am positive you can find somewhere better value in saigon and everyday i was here i was annoyed at my self for not finding somewhere better!
