We had to move to this hotel as our hotel room on Bui vien was facing the street and the noise from the neighbouring bar was terrible even until sunrise! We picked an internal room with no windows so help with this problem, the everywhere on Bui Vien suffers the noise from bars. The hotel is all shiny and new, so a bit more expensive than what we were used to ($36 for a standard, $46 for a deluxe). Staff were fine - slightly odd that the owners hung around in the lobby and that the TV was on all the time, even at breakfast which was a bit noisy for us. Breakfast wasn't that great but ok. WiFi in the rooms and 1 communal computer in the lobby. This hotel is fine but the main problem is that the street is so noisy.

Room Tip: Don't get a room at the front!

This was the 2nd hotel I stayed at in HCMC and I was there for two nights. It is in the heart of the backpacker/tourist district which is convenient for somethings, but also noisy due to several bars blasting music (despite patrons just lazily/boringly sitting around people watching).

Rooms are ok, nothing to write home about, but they were clean and reasonably new and appointed. And I never though I would say this, but it is probably better to get a room with no window, you'll sleep better and if it is just a place to crash after a long day of out and about, who cares. You don't really want a view of the backpacker district anyway. Wi-fi strength was good in the room and the lobby. Breakfast was good and convenient with good service, but relatively expensive option considering the cost of food on the street and nearby cafes.

What made my experience was the interactions with the manager (or an owners it more seems like) when I first arrived. He spoke fluent English and was very happy to provide recommendations for pho places, other restaurants (based on the dish I was looking for) and spas (I would recommend getting a massage everyday - so cheap in HCMC). He of course has tourist agency fliers like all of the other places, but he never tried to sell me (just showed he could offer that if I wanted it) and the places he recommended to eat really did seem like places he liked to go eat himself.

Overall a good experience and a good value for the money if you can put up with no window.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and found everything to be of a very good standard. The rooms are clean, comfortable and relatively new. The staff are great and go out of their way to assist in any way possible. The breakfast was adequate and certainly enough to please most travellers.
Unlike some previous reviews we did not find the hotel to be too noisy and had very comfortable sleep each night. Admittedly the hotel is right in the middle of the back packers area and the streets are full of revelers till all hours but once in the room we found no such problem with noise. The street parties each night were a highlight as it is a great way to meet people from all corners of the globe. Our room was a deluxe room with a window facing onto the street but maybe we were on a high enough floor to miss the noise.

Room Tip: If booking a window room - ask for one on the upper floors to avoid party noise from the street outs...

Like a few other reviews, I thought the rooms were delightful and clean. Unfortunately, I was unable to sleep because of the very loud bar next door that played loud music until 5am. I suggest that you get a room without windows to the street.

Other than the noise, it was a nice place. The rules for breakfast were more strict than other hotels in Vietnam. The location is nice and facilitates easy walking to nearby sights.

Room Tip: avoid rooms with windows to the street

The hotel rooms are very new, moden and clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We even left some postcards with them and they posted them for us. Breakfast is generous and tasty. Despite all this I cannot give it more than 2 stars because of the noise from the pub next to it. They play music extremely loud up to 4:30 am with no chance of falling asleep. So if you choose to stay here make sure you dont get a room with street view.

Reading about the standard rooms without windows, I booked a deluxe room for 48$ and really got a window. The hotel is quite new, so the rooms are still in a good condition. Nothing to complain about. Limited choice at breakfast is not a problem, since there are lot's of great and inexpensive restaurants around. Location couldn't be better for leasure travel. Only a few meters away from crazy buffalo and all the nightlife at Bui Vien Street. Taxi costs about 50k dong from the railway station and almost 200k dong to the airport.

Room Tip: Deluxe room has window.
