Prime location, friendly staff
Location, tour advice
Just off the main backpacker road, we were very happy with our stay here. The staff are friendly, breakfast is included and when we asked for tours and advice they were happy to help. Staff member spent a long time trying to find us transport to hoi an during peak period which was appreciated

Value for money!
Nice location
as this is in the rather backpacker area, it is a decent place for families. plenty of places to eat and stores selling necessities. i recommended red sun to a friend and he liked it too. will go back.

Kinda old but great working staff
Friendly and helpful staff
Room seems a bit old but can't complain since it's budget. All the staff are warm, friendly and helpful, especially one staff called Hinh. She helped to answer all my queries such as directions in hcmc, speaking in vietnamese and getting my sim card top-up. Thank you!

friendly staff
good location, quiet hotel
1. hotel is close to the many travel agencies, and places of interests. 2. the breadfast is just soso. i suggest that the customers can go outside to have breadfast, since lots of restaurants nearby. 3. the staffs are friendly and helpful. one of the staff walked me 10 mins in order to help me renting a bike. all in all, the tips from the staffs made my trip easier in hcm city.

Big bang for the buck, great location
Amazing location for little money
Red Sun is very basic, but its clean, the staff were wonderful, and the location was exception. My fiance works downtown and picked this hotel for me. We were very close to many things to do, many restaurants, markets, museums, parks, etc.

affordable access to downtown hmc
Very close to downtown districts, quiet alley, affordable
i stayed here before i left hmc. this little hotel is the best way for anyone to see downtown hmc if you are on a budget. the place was simple, but clean. it is in an alley, not facing a major street with loud motorbike traffic. many museums, parks, and downtown attractions are near by. sign tourist is literally a block away, making for an easy walk with bags to catch a tour of vietnam.

Good cheap option in heart of backpacker area
Hassle free room basic but adequate
the check in process was a little protracted but once installed a simple but adequate room was available. ok the fittings were falling off the wall and the shower was nothing more than a shower head over the tiolet but for the price ir served its purpose. the staff were charming and if a little bit scatty we were made to feel very welcome. quiet at night so no problem getting a good nights rest and the air con did its job. breakfast was simple but saved the dash out to the street to fill up on pho, which incidentally is available very early in the morning just around the corner
