I cant speak for the one on pham ngu lao street.. but the one on "18 dong du st" is as advertised
1. location, location, location... its a few blocks from sheraton, carvelle, rex etc in district 1 so can easily walk to all the main downtown attractions
2. for value for your money - hard pressed to do better than this - paid $26 taxes and breakfast (coffee/tea, orange juice, 2 eggs cooked how you like and white toast) included for a fair sized room with a queen bed, TV with 2 English channels, fridge, kettle, free water and free desktop in reception, free wifi throughout, good AC and relatively clean (not perfect but what do you expect for $26!). Stayed 3 nights and had no problems and was quiet all 3 nights.
3. Had excellent helpful and good English speaking staff morning and night.. the evening shift was iffy for English. Front desk could also change money no problems and as good as rate as anywhere else I saw.
4. I was single white chick travelling alone and felt very safe here. The area is a tiny bit seedy by night but definitely okay by day. There are several 24/hr open corner stores within a block for basic food/drink/personal needs. Taxi to airport cost me 8$ US.
