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.

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.

We arrived there and they didn't have our room so they put us in the hotel next door (Thang Nha 3) which was very nice. The staff in both hotels were super friendly, the alleyway where they are located is the most peaceful place in Saigon.

Better than I expected

Clean, quiet and location is perfect

I was a bit hesitant actually in booking this guesthouse because some of the reviews about the location is dangerous and need to go to a little alley. Closing my fingers have this book and I am not totally expecting on this little guesthouse. Upon arrival in the guesthouse there is a man actually sleeping on the main room for security and they are fully book. All my hotels are booked thru Agoda and they never fail me. Mai guesthouse room took me surprise because the room is spacious and clean. Have lcd tv, aircon is good, window, desk and fridge. It's like a hotel and the alley is quite safe actually. This guesthouse is underrated.
