Just make it simple. The room looks super cheap and it is far worse than to other hotels room in the central of the city which offer the same price. I can not express my disappointment on the room I got on the ground floor.

warm and cozy
I've been in this hotel few time already. The management and service quality still remain good. this time they provide turn down service. I was check out quite early in the morning to the airport, staff process checkout quickly.

Books were everywhere
We made it here for our final night in HCMC. The ambience of the entrance and lobby was as stunning as seen on TV! The staff are friendly (both at lobby and in the restaurant) with better English speaking you could find in HCMC. The 'Bookmark' has its class and the breakfast were superb where you could have 2 orders from the menu. Not forgetting one male staff who has got great sense of photography. Only one thing to be regretted, we should have stayed for longer.

Nice hotel!
Very nice boutique hotel with incredibly friendly staff. We were here for one night and chose this hotel due to its proximity to the airport. The rooms are nice and the restaurant upstairs has good food. There isn't much to do in the neighborhood, however. Lastly, the staff went above and beyond to help us during our stay. Arranged airport transportation and even made take away breakfast for us because we left the hotel too early for any other options. I recommend this hotel!

We love this hotel so much! Though it's slightly off city centre, it'll only take about 80000 dong to travel to town. This hotel is clean and beautiful, the rooms and beds are so comfortable. The food are very good too. The staff were also extremely helpful. Very value for money and definitely coming back again!

Friendly staff and good location
The most friendly staff i've ever experienced, very helpful, young motivated staffs. Great breakfast. Very homy environment. Great shower. Everything was just easy. What not so great is only the location, not a good location if you wanna have a walk, too busy and pollution, but easy to get to the airport.

Pleasant stay
Three stars hotel but the services are excellent.Staying one night for $75+ (Sing Dollar). I like the breakfast and are yummy yummy. The staffs are very polite and helpful. I like the hotel concept being decorated as library and very suitable to take photos. There is Sister hotel known as SARAI resort and spa in Siem Reap,Combodia and I believe is worth to try as well.
