“Good Basic Hotel”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

The receptionist (especially the head receptionist) are very nice and cater to your needs. The rooms are clean and spacious, I think depending on which cleaner cleans the room it can be a bit variable. Some days they don't wash the cups or throw out the tea bags, other days they do. Shrug.

The rooftop bar/restaurant is nice but on the weekends it gets packed so you might not get a table with a view. The area is good and convenient, on the not as busy end of the street which is only a 5 minute or so walk away.

Breakfast is very basic and gets boring after 2 days. But there's plenty of food downstairs. The morning can get a bit nosy with the traffic and the stores around the hotel seems to be renovating constantly.

Dear Judy,


Thank you so much for recommended our hotel service on this site. As any hospitality, we would always love to make absolutely certain about your inspiration as well your happiness due staying with us. Our hotel location is the great one situated right in the center of the district, plus closed by hundreds of attractions. It is great to hear that you would like our room service and the breakfast alternatives between Asian and Western cuisins. And yet, it is one of our honor to give people, even it is in a very "secret and private" inspirationally.


Anyway, we apologize if there are any inconveniences at your stay that time as neighbor noise (it is barely happened) and about AC noise. We are also doing the renovation for sound proof, so it will support you for next visit.


Once again, thank you so much for recommending us. We wish you well and health.


Best regards,


Jade

we stay in this hotel 15 and 16 april 2014, bed was a bit too hard, shower was pointing towards the wall it splash straight to the wall and down the floor, have a few ants other than that I find the location is good, plenty of food around. Staff was very friendly and willing to help anytime, but the best of this hotel is breakfast,, what a wonderful set up of yummy food, We were put in an older hotel, Duc Vuong have 2 hotel, make sure you ask for the newer hotel. over all we have a good time in Vietnam thanks Edgardo Lim

Room Tip: ask for the newer hotel not the old hotel next door

My first ever stay overseas and I was not disappointed with the Duc Vuong Hotel, the staff were wonderful, always caring and helpful. The location was great, it was right in the middle of all that I wanted to see, and there was always something happening in the streets close by. I loved the fact that the doormen always checked that I had my bag secured on my shoulder, and would offer to help me cross the road - the top floor garden and cafe/restaurant was a welcome relief at the end of the day, wonderful food, great service .. and just a short stair climb!! Cannot say enough good things about this hotel, please give it a try! Many thanks to Ms Eva and the other receptionists, see you again soon, I hope! Jill Strykowski, Australia

To Jill,


Thank you so much for recommended our hotel service on this site. As any hospitality, we would always love to make absolutely certain about your inspiration as well your happiness due staying with us. It is brilliant and honor to know that you do like our service and to hear that we were the lucky hospitality that you have chosen to stay in your trip.


It is lovely to hear that you like and could recommend the rooftop bar restaurant. And yet, it is one of our honor to give people, even it is in a very "secret and private" inspirational (people always love this little secret that it is so quiet, cozy and different from rustle on the street. It rather becomes a lovely house for people to relax after a busy day in this developing city)


One more time, a hugely pretty plenty thanks for your PA in this review and your concern about our team. We will try more to please you better in next reservation. All the best and see you next time.


Cozy hug,


Jade

At the end of our holiday the hotel provided a good central location close to resturants and bars. Rooms were well equipped and comfortable, staff helpful and polite.Fruit and tea in lobby were nice touches and rooftop bar was a bit special. Oyster cafe opposite is good place to eat and Ben Thanh market about 15 minutes walk away. Street outside was very lively in evening providing a buzz for those who chose to sit on pavements and socialise. A hotel to recommend to all.

Room Tip: Rooms sith a window are better.

Dear friend,

Thanks a lot for your contribution in our Duc Vuong family lately. It is so glad to get your rating from this website. As well, it is appreciated that you liked the room and the facilities it brought. The rooftop bar restaurant is absolutely stunning and bringing spectacularly great view of New Saigon with flash light from commercial buildings is fabulous at night time. Plus it is the "third place" and the seats are always neat and closed by from table to table (exception for some table for two, or couple tables), people would have ever felt lonely in this busy city. Our location is also pretty closed to lots of orther attractions which could lead you able to walk to the major center of Saigon.


Wish you a Victorious year.


Thank you and many thanks,


Jade

We stayed at the Duc Vuong for 10 days. (19th to 29th April 2014)
The rooms were clean and well presented. Breakfast was also good. The staff were very friendly, always going out of their way to make us feel welcome, specially Eva, Jenny and Anh. What a great team.
The hotel is in a great location close to many cafes and bars and in the backpackers area District One.
Even though renovations were being carried out on the Roof Top Bar we still enjoyed many cold beers and some great cocktails.
We would definately recommend this hotel to all readers. Great value for money, and we would happily stay here again

Last 3 nights of our trip were spent here. Loved the location as it was busy and action packed. Sitting on the roof top at the end of the day was great. The room we had was fine but no window except into the hallway; not great for privacy. Breakfast was ok and the staff were fine. A local waitress with an Aussie accent was the hotels greatest asset. Sorry cannot recall her name at the moment. Saigon really only needs 1 full day but as we were meeting friends we did have a 2nd day. Make sure you use the motorbike taxis. Super fast, cheap and so fun. (Exhilarating). I would have no problem staying here again but you might be able to find better.

Dear guest,


It is so great to hear from you back home. Thank you for your lovely contribution and all the greatest concern to our hospitality lately. This review is now a hugest encouragement to our whole enterprise to develop more in service. That is pretty kind of you for playing a very important roll to push us into a very constantly improvement.


Thanks for raising our service so much, however, the awkward structure of the window in room would have no problem and no one could reach it. Actually, we would change it next for this time renovation as better support in future.


Our staffs all have the best training and their working attitude as well. They will give you all support from professional job to the attractions you might ask about, so no worries in staying with us.


Once again thanks too much for your contribution and review. Wish all the best to you and family back home.


Many thanks and best regards,


Jade

Hello Clay,


Thanks a millions for crossing us a lovely review on this site. There I always good service and “be right there” working attitude from our hospitality. It is grand to hear that you have been using all of our service in the building from hotel room service, buffet breakfast, rooftop bar restaurant, also a lot of other services. And it is so honor to notice your brilliant contribution, as well as your appreciation to our team work. For your next staying, we are going to support you even better as we are upgrading sound proof in every room, open it wider on the rooftop bar for more open view in many sides, as well new decoration would lead you to more comfortable stay.

We wish to see your next reservation soon. All the best!

Many regards,

Jade
