My wife and I stayed here as part of a 3 month SE Asia backpacking trip. It was $30/night with taxes and all and that included breakfast which we found to be quite good, although somewhat unorthodox by Western standards you could say. You could have eggs made ready any style, baguettes, mixed fruit, fried rice and noodles, french fries some days, spring rolls other...all very good though regardless and for $30/night I will take what I can get on a budget. The room itself was nice, we had a standard with a window; which included cable TV, free in room wifi, hot shower, soap, shampoo, etc...and it suited our needs just fine. Nothing excellent but defintely above average. This hotel is located at the very west end of Bui VIen st. which is literally at the heart of District 1, backpacking area-take my word for it. Walk outside, turn right, and you are faced with multiple options of food, bar, shopping and we had no problem walking during day time heat to the War Remnants Museum and Golden Water Puppet Theater. Cab was less than $3 USD on one occasion we didn't. The hotel staff was very nice to us and even change dour room five minutes after checking in as we did not like its proximity towards the restaurant/bar. No questions asked. I would say the highlight of the hotel is a pubic rooftop bar which serves delicious foods and drinks, at a fairly reasonable price depending on what you order, with an incredible view of the city. If you visit there, you will meet a very nice Vietnamese woman with an Australian accent (her English teacher was Australian) who was incredibly welcoming and a hard worker. The rooftop bar was a great escape from the hustle of the city and there you wont have to worry about any hagglers. My only complaint, an this is not necessarily directed at the hotel, was that some other guests staying on our floor were very loud and allowed their children to run around very early morning. The walls are thin and the halls carry sound very easily so this will certainly disturb you if you are a light sleeper. If you're on a budget or want to be in the thick of things, I would definitely recommend.
