This hotel is good but upgrading is in progress.
The staffs is extremely friendly and helpful, the room is clean plus easy excess to the city center.
My stayed in the hotel was good and i am satisfied. Due to the hotel upgrading works in progress the exterior kind of dusty. But in near future to come, this hotel might be one of the best affordable and pleasant hotel.

Don't stay.You'll never get the comfortable feelin
Is there any notice on their interior construction schedule or issues that need to be informed to customer? It was under construction (very bad dust and dirt that results from it), unable to use the WIFI at room, unable to take the shower at night during 1H30M due to their construction. I never got the bad experience like this before from any of hotel booked by Agoda. Tooooooooo much disappointed! It was not a big money but really want to get the money back from this lousy hotel.

modern budget hotel
room size, location, price
The hotel is under renovation, but that did not cause any issues whatsoever. My junior suite was large with all the amenities. It was on the street side, but still quiet. The breakfast was simple, but outstanding. Lots of restaurants in the immediate area. Walking distance to Ben Tranh. The staff will write down your destination in Vietnamese and call a reliable meter cab for you. A great stay.

Nice boutique hotel
Newly upgraded facilities with modern design, clean and simple but decent breakfast
The hotel is located in a nice quiet section of the street. The room is small but efficient giving the feeling of a typical Japanese hotel room. I would give this hotel a 2.5* rating

Pleasant Hotel
The Bed, Friendly Staff , Close to Nighlife
I has a short stay but found the staff to be very nice . The doorman and night receptionist very good. They arranged taxi for me to go to night life and also back to airport. Only problem was when I returned to hotel that night the card reader for electricity supply to room did not work and took about 1 hour before anyone could move me rooms. They had to seek permission from a manager who was not on site. Staff were good so not really made an issue out of it. By the way ... first to travel to HCM and got ripped of by airport private taxi . I was charge 400 000d plus 100 000 exit fee from airport. The hotel booked me a taxi back to airport and cost 170 000. Next I go to the authorized taxi stand
