This is a new little hotel located right on the main backpackers street. It is in excellent condition and has very clean amenities. The staff are very friendly and helpful and always happy to see you when you get back.
The hotel is on Bui Vien St which is full of bars, restaraunts, massage places, tourists and hawkers. This may be a problem for some people that are looking for peace and quiet, but myself and my girlfriend were very happy with the fact that we could step out of the front door and get food and beers straight away. It is a good party atmosphere every night.
The hotel itself is very good, especially considering the price, we paid around $50 a night for one of the better rooms. The staff are very friendly and will help with any enquiries you might have. They recommended an excellent massage place just around the corner (which was very professional and we went back every afternoon for the remainder of our time in Saigon). We also booked all of our tours through them and were very happy.
When we checked out we had to wait until 9 pm to get on the sleeper bus to Nha Trang. The staff let us store our bags while we killed some time (check out at 1200). They also let us have a shower before we went to get on the bus too.
Little touches like that are what makes this an excellent hotel. We have booked another night there for when we come back to Saigon (before we fly home to Australia).
