This hotel is well located for all the bustle of District 1 and has pretty much everything that you need in this price range. The rooms are all clean (we saw one cleaner hard at work on the grout in a tiled bedroom floor with a toothbrush!) and come with air-con, fridge and satellite TV. There is free internet downstairs in the lobby.

The staff are very helpful and the guy on day duty is especially friendly and cheerful!

There are a lot of hotels in this area that are all in the same price range. Rather than trying to wade through all the options, just do yourself a favour and stay and here.

Stayed here on and off for a period of around five nights during our travels around Vietnam. Room was absolutely fine with everything you need for such great value. Hotel staff were excellent and assisted us with anything we needed so a big thank you to you all! Great location with a good street buzz and plenty of places to eat, drink and shop. Other sightseeing places were a very cheap cab drive away or within easy walking distance if it's not too hot and humind. Do stay here. ....it's well worth it!

Our family of 7 adults recently stayed 2 nights at Bich Duyen. It was fabulous in every aspect. The location in District 1 is perfect we loved our little alleyway it had so much character. We would often sit waiting for rest of family. The guys that run hotel are so nice couldnt do enough for us. Rooms are very clean, breakfast omelette delicous. I asked the guys for massage recommendation place it was best massage I had in Vietnam and only 1-2 mins from hotel. Another great thing was they have large glass fronted fridge in the foyer with beer and other drinks & water at very very reasonable prices. So handy the males loved that they could have a beer so easily while chatting in their foyer and alleyway. They will organise anything for you with great competence. I got them to organise airport pickup for us all went very smoothly. The price of this place was so so reasonable for what you got. All shoes are taken off before you enter which is great keeps the floors spotless. Stop looking elsewhere just book it you wont be sorry.

Room Tip: Ask for lower floor rooms if your not very fit.

The title pretty much spells it out. This seems to be an average hotel that earns an above-average reputation for its low price point, its great location relative to tourist attractions, and its quiet, alleyway address.

The room was as small as they get for two people. When I made the reservation, the desk clerk told me the bed was a queen, but it turned out to be a double (I think a queen would have blocked the door). By the way, don't book a room here using hostelworld.com or some other intermediary service; you'll be charged twice the price. The staff speaks excellent English and is extremely friendly. Just call them.

Other details: the soap is absurdly small. If you're a dirty hippy, like my wife, that's not a problem. But if you like a proper scrubbing, then buy a bar of soap from a store nearby. Also, the beer in the lobby is really cold and the price can't be beat. Breakfast was good as well, and complimentary. There's a mini-fridge in the room.

Room Tip: If you want a cave that's good for sleeping, take 102. Also a good choice if you've got one...

Stayed here for the last 5 nights in Saigon. Was emailed in advance from the hotel asking if I wanted a transfer which was much cheaper than arranging through the booking site. Was kindly greeted by the staff and led to my room with great air con and comfortable bed. The price was excellent and the location is right in the heart of the backpacker district while avoiding the busy streets and noise from the motorbikes. Would recommend this place for all travellers wanting to find great value for a great price.
