Delightful Hotel
This hotel is tucked away on a quiet street and has well selected quotes and pictures framed throughout the property. It was fun to be met by a Dr.Suess quote in the hallway to my room. The rooms are well maintained and comfortable. The staff are very respectful and willing to help, setting up tours and taxis if asked, but don't try to sell, they're lovely and low key. I loved coming back to this place at night and felt very safe there. It's a charming respite from the tireless city streets of Saigon.

Beautiful Place :)
Everything was classy. Lucy from the front desk was super helpful and the included breakfast was amazing. Nice rooftop restaurant too. Our A/C unit had some problems, so they offered us a free ride to the airport when we left. A nice touch I figure. They really do care here.

staff, convenience to airport
We stayed here 3 different nights as we flew in and out of Ho Chi Minh City. Peter picked us up from the airport and he was great!! The hotel was very nice and close to airport. The staff were great and the restaurant was very good.

Twice the charm
Travelling back in time to a quiet street off a busy second time in this little house converted to a motel property. Books line two walls in the lobby with quotes and perks (such as a little piece of choc and a tale at turn down), to friendly staff and comfortable beds. A new addition since my first, is the availability of I-pad for within hotel use. They have an in-house dining facility on the 5th floor. An option to consider if you have an early morning flight or an overnight transit in the city. It is a mere 10 minutes from the airport and to the city. It also has added a morning drop off to District 1.

Cool, elegant, value for money
Check the toilet doors first if it is agreeable with you. You are only obscured by frosted glass as you bathe. if not an issue then I would really recommend this hotel especially for those who don't want to be amid the noise and insanity of downtown ho chi minh.
