Our hotel in Hanoi (Madam Moon's Guesthouse) recommended the Beautiful Saigon Hotel. We stayed here five nights (room #301). Small, boutique hotel in District 1. Easy walk to many sights and great restaurants. Breakfast was included and served in the lobby each morning. (Their sister hotel, Beautiful Saigon II, has a restaurant which serves very good food.) Our room was $40/night. Comfy bed (the best bed in Vietnam -- most beds were like rocks!). Had a computer w/internet in our room. Miss Hanh was an excellent concierge -- she help book train tickets between Saigon-Danang and tours of the Mekong Delta and Cu Chi Tunnels. The front desk staff was equally helpful -- friendly and full of smiles.
The hotel arranged for us to have use of room #303 on the day we checked out because we were taking the midnight train to Danang. It was lovely to have a place to shower, pack, and nap before a 15-hour train ride. #303 was much smaller than our original room, and didn't have a computer, but is was clean and comfortable. This would be an excellent room for a solo traveller.
You could here some street noise in both room, but hey -- this is Ho Chi Minh City. If you want peace and quiet, head to the coast or to the mountains. HCMC is a bustling metropolis!
We would definitely stay here again should we ever find ourselves in HCMC.
