I walked into Lac Vien Hotel without advanced booking. The rate quoted for a Standard Room (without window) was $32, but the front desk officer offered me a discount at $28 if I stayed for 3 nights. After viewing the room, I accepted the offer.

LOCATION: Conveniently located at backpackers’ area in Pham Ngu Lao, and is near to Ben Thanh Market.

ROOM: Clean and spacious. The bathroom had a mini bathtub. One thing missing: hair dryer.

BREAKFAST: No buffet breakfast, but there were ample of choices.

SERVICE: Good.

WHAT I DID NOT LIKE: Some guests smoked inside the dining hall.

Good location. Noisy clubs nearby is either good or bad. I depends what you want. All the staff are very helpful. Plenty of local restaurants. easy walking distance to the markets. At the north end of the tourist/ backpacker area.Plenty of local tourist agencies too.

Room Tip: VIP rooms are good for families but at the front so noisy outside

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights, had a great experience, upgraded to VIP room for last night after my daughter arrived. Great location, has all that you need near and around hotel, cafe's, tour company's etc. I travel regularly and don't usually bother to write review's but I felt the need to tell anyone who is thinking about this motel that they are making a great decision if they decide to stay here.

Clean rooms , friendly staff, good atmosphere. The hotel is located in district one but the room was surprisingly quite. Breakfast was pretty good for a low budget hotel, u could choose from different menu items and of course the tea and the coffee. Also everyday 2 complementary water bottles the hotel was providing to his guests. I know it doesn't sound something big not many hotels do that. I will stay there again without any problem.

Hotel rate is quite cheap, with simple coffee and toast breakfast thrown in.
Location, hotel is not very easy to find as it is located in a back alley. But it is near to
a lot of eateries and small shops that sell lots of cheap stuff. Money changers and
tour centres are also close by.
Room is clean with enough space for 2 persons. Counter staff is friendly
and helpful (can speak English). Stayed 2 nights before proceeding north to
Nha Trang.

Room Tip: Ask for room at high floor.
