Great Location, Good Price, Comfortable Room

Great location (near Ben Tanh Market), clean room and bathroom, good wifi, good service, affordable price
My first impression is that the hotel was not quite big and quite narrow, but the room itself is quite nice with great location and a reasonable price. However one thing that i find disappointing is the breakfast. The taste is actually okay but they don't seem to refill the breakfast, so with breakfast time 06.30-09.30, you better come at 07.00-07.30 or else you'll be left with some of dry bread and water.

Will not return anymore

Room bigger than Ruby 3
i like agoda but when i arrived at the receptionist, she told me next time to book direct with them. they said that my room still not ready and promised to move my luggage to room when is ready. so i trust them and went out for business meeting. when i am back to hotel at 4pm, my bag still in the small lobby. when i am in the room, disppointed to see the tv is not lcd. although the room is slightly bigger than ruby 3, i will go back to stay at ruby 3 for the next trip because i like, bigger lobby, bigger breakfast area and nicer receptionist. fyi, vivian is previously known as ruby 2.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Very near to Ben Thanh Market

Prefer Ruby 3 in future. Please go to Ruby 3

Near Ben Thanh Market
I would suggest that you stay at Ruby 3. This Vivian was previously known as Ruby 2. TV is not LCD. My room, shower can't even sit in the holder.

Service with smile

good location, value for $$
Location is ideally for Muslim travelers as Halal restaurants can be found easily along the hotel. 24hr convenient shops can there too. Near Ben Then Market & night market and bus interchange. Walking distance to Saigon Mall. Hard Rock Cafe is located at Saigon too.
Restaurant Tip: Halal Restaurants - Near Ben Then Market or rather opposite the An Tam Hotel. There are fews Halal Restaurants along Saigon area too. Nice & decent meal cost about SIN$6-9 incl. drink per person. Taxi fare from Airport to Distict 1 (Ben Then) or vice versa cost about dong 180000 or USD8. Standard charging. Hotel usually charge USD20 but not necessarily to book thru hotel as plenty of taxis are waiting just outside your hotel lobby all times.

Clean hotel and great location

Only walking to Ben Thanh Market
It is very nice to stay at Vivian Saigon Hotel. They provide good breakfast, clean room and good services. Especially for the bathroom is very large and comfortable. The location is near to Ben Thanh market and along the street near to the hotel we can found many food so it's very easy to eat.
Shopping Tip: To bargain below 50% is very good.

Great Location and Nice room

Near to Ben Thanh Market
good location and the room is clean and tidy. the staff a little bit blur when we check in as giving us the wrong key that we enter a room which already check in by other guest, lucky no people when we open the door. the second key that he gave us, end up in the room that haven't clean and tidy up. the third time, then only we get the correct key to our room.... overall the staff very friendly and helpful.
Shopping Tip: walking distance to Ben Thanh Market only.
