“An Average Hotel in Downtown”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

This hotel is about average hotel. When we checked in our Safe did not work, the air conditioner will not cool and the door lock will not open, so they change our room and this room was very far away from the elevator. The staff was good and friendly, they fixed all the problems.
Also if you are in a room facing the main road you will get too much noise at night from the traffic passing by.

Room Tip: Make sure the room has a working safe, air conditioner and locks?

We were recommended the hotel by a family member who had stayed there.
From the moment we arrived and saw our names on the welcome board to waving goodbye after staying 6 nights we were thoroughly spoilt.
The staff go out of their way to ensure everything is easy for you.
The front desk staff remembered every person's name and were always enquiring if everything was ok. Every time we walked back into the hotel we were encouraged to sit and sip lotus tea at the beautiful tables in the foyer. The doorman was always there to walk us across the road if needed (and ensured the straps on our bags were safely tucked under our arms) The rooms were very clean and tidy, the shower was a bit hit and miss with the hot water but it wasn't a problem for us. We had breakfast upstairs every day and it was always of a high standard as were the staff. The top floor bar has spectacular views of the city, the drinks and food are very cheap and the service top quality. We used the hotel laundry service and it was $1.00 per kilo and delivered back in the afternoon. The backpacker area has to be one of the best places to stay in Saigon and it would be hard to find a better value for money place to stay. The staff definitely make this place what it is and i would recommend to all. Definitely use the travel agent attached to the hotel, the tours are not expensive - the 5hr cyclo city tour is a must.

Room Tip: street rooms have windows but can be a bit noisy. back rooms have no windows but are very quiet. r...

For the price, this is a great deal. Greeted by friendly and helpful staff, this hotel is located in a very busy and lively section, but just at the edge of where everything is happening so its not too noisy there. This hotel has very interesting layout, new, modern and clean. Amazing rooftop bar and restaurant, offers stunning views of the city.

Only thing that would have given it the 5th star is that we had a room with no windows. Wasn't a big deal, didn't spend too much time in the room, and for a small fee you can upgrade to room with windows. Would stay here again without a doubt. Great place!

We stayed two nights at Duc Vuong Hotel when we arrived in Ho Chi Minh and we liked it that much, that we booked another two nights on the end of our vacation, when we returned from Cambodia.
The staff is very nice, professional and helpful, the rooms were very clean and - in our case - renovated. The bathroom looked brand-new.
Breakfast is okay, they also prepare fried eggs if you like, and there were always fresh fruits and vietnamese food.
The hotel is located in a district where many travel agencies, hotels, restaurants, shops, spas and bars are.
You can reach many city attractions like the Reunification Palace, Ben-Thanh-Market, Financial Tower or Saigon Square by foot. No taxi needed! :)


Don't miss having a drink at the wonderful rooftop restaurant!!

Thank you very much for your kind review, and for taking the time to write about your stay. We can't tell you how much it means to us to read about your stay and to know that you enjoyed your time with our caring staff. We love to hear that you enjoyed the newly renovated room, as we have put much thought into each upgrade in order for our guests to have the best possible experience. We are also happy to hear that you enjoyed "The View" Garden Terrace City View Restaurant. This, to us is a little bit of heaven as we find our guest can either have a quiet romantic evening here and/or meet not only other guests that are sharing the same experience but also our friendly staff who are always happy to hear about where you are from, where you are going and how your travels are going.

Nothing but praise for the excellent service rendered by all the staff...reception, bellboy, waiters/waitress & cleaners, etc. They always greet us with a smile. The reception staff was able to assist us on all our queries. The daytime doorman was very attentive...ever ready to open the door, hail a cab for us or even stop the traffic to allow us to cross the road. Even some 5-star hotel could not provide such service. Bravo to the Management for having such a great team. The breakfast spread was adequate & passable...taste wise. Nice view from the roof top cafe. We stayed in a Deluxe room at the 6th floor so we had no problem on the noise from the traffic. However, once we were disturbed by some inconsiderate fellas who talked loudly in the middle of the nite outside our room. My only complaint is that sometimes we can barely feel the hot water when we showered & on the last day of our stay there was no hot water at all at 6.30am.

Room Tip: Rooms on the high floors & away from the front road should be ideal.
