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.

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.

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
