Having thought ourselves smart for booking accommodation before arrival, we landed in HCMC from Thailand around 9pm and headed for what we thought was our hotel in a taxi. Upon arriving we discovered that we booked the wrong hotel - we wanted to stay here (via recommendation by the LP) but we booked (and paid for) "Hong Ha", some hotel in District 11, the wonderful Anh (he lives up to the hype) ushered us in, brought us juice and helped us call the other hotel to sort out the mess. We were so exhausted at this point and so taken with Anh's hospitality to two people who weren't even his guests that we decided to stay there and forget the $20 we had paid to the other place. That same night Anh also arranged a tour to the Cu Chi tunnels for us for the very next morning. He was incredibly helpful and friendly. The rooms: the first night we stayed on the 3rd floor and on the second night on the 4th. The climb up is annoying, but since you're likely to only do it 1-2 times a day, it's fine. The rooms are very clean, in great condition, bright and space is well used. The bars are a little further up the road so we weren't bothered by any noise.
Overall we loved our stay here and were impressed with everything about the hotel.
