We love this guest house as it is conveniently located in an alley yet so much happenings. Near to food stalls, pubs, shops. Good recommendation for budget travellers.

A quiet place in the middle of the city

So close to the market, quiet, great family that runs it.
We loved the big window that overlooked the alley. At first we weren't sure when the taxi driver dropped us off at the front of an alley. But we realized after carrying our luggage through the alley to the hotel - that the location is ideal, because you are away from the noises of the street. We got a really good nights sleep and had such an easy time walking to all kinds of great sights - and the market is a short walk. We will be staying here again. Our kids, 10 & 14 really loved the windo overlooking the alley & the city. The whole wall is a window, with heavy drapes if you want privacy. Nice setup & great family that runs it.

Home away from home

Very service-oriented, located in a very vibrant area, good food nearby
My stay at Mai Guest House was nothing short of excellent. To get to the guesthouse from Pham Ngu Lao Street, you have to turn in to this alley at "241", and then you walk down the alley till you find "41". It wasn't as difficult as I thought to find as long as you know how the street address works. That bring said, it is very conveniently located to Bui Vien, which has a very vibrant night life with lots of pubs and eateries. No doubt the prices there is a little higher than other areas of Ho Chi Minh as they cater to tourists. To get to Ben Thanh Market, it is a good 10 to 15 minutes walk. Service-wise, I felt that the owner and his family were very genuine. He was able to communicate in perfect English and gave us a lot of good advices on the places to visit etc. The tours that we booked through him were also reliable and at reasonable pricing so we did not worry about being shortchanged. The highlight of it all was the Granny, she was so nice! The owner allowed us to use his bathroom after we checked out, and before we headed to the airport, gave us free water as he told us that the water sold at the airport was expensive. This was on top of us receiving free water from him when we first checked-in. The room was reasonably clean, but since we paid for this price, do not expect to have soap, shampoo, toothbrush and toothpaste provided. I think that you have to request for a change in towel if you want a new one everyday. The toilet had good warm water but for some reason there was no warm water on the second day. We were too tired to ask them to check for us. Wifi was excellent was they had routers strategically placed at different floors. We stayed at room 302 (yes you got to climb quite a bit to get to the fourth floor but we did not find it an issue). All in all, this place was not perfect but this was outweighed but the genuineness and sincerity of the owner and his family. There is no doubt I will come back again the next time I visit Ho Chi Minh.

Good experience

Clean, well located and friendly host
Some of the local attraction is just within the walking distance from the guest house. The room is new, clean, and have a good wifi speed. You can easily get some food around the guest house such as vietnamese noodle etc. The host and his family is friendly and helpful. Overall thumb up for Mai Guest House.
