Adequate facilities for a holiday

Nice staff, strategic place for Halal food
Nice hotel, the room is just enough for a family with 1 toddler. Good and polite staff, a very polite doorbell man. The front desk is really helpful. Find everything for us. Even buying cheapest souvenirs for my husband! No need to book ahead any tourist agent from your place.
Shopping Tip: 5 minutes walking distance to Ben Thanh market. Near to Restoran Kampung Melayu and Hjh Bashiroh Halal stall.

Quality Hotel in good location

Central, clean and safe
The hotel is very central and clean. I ended up staying the whole week. The room was perfect for me although there was no coffee or tea but a kettle and mugs – go figure. My room had a bath / shower combo, English TV and double bed. The reception staff were very friendly and could actually speak English. The breakfast was ok and the price for the room is reasonable. It is walking distance to the night markets. Watch your belongings. This hotel I recommend – overall it was very comfortable.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Vietnam War Museum

Nice bathroom, but poor cleaning quality

big bathtub!
I stayed two nights in this hotel. The breakfast is not good and the service and the cleaning quality are required to put more efforts to improve. But as it's a two star hotel and it's pretty cheap, the expectation of this hotel doesn't need to be too high. So I think I can tolerate all these things.

i think it is clean, good location, and good service, highly recommended
i think it is clean, good location, and good service, highly recommended, the worst thing is in crowded area, so a bit noisy for sleep.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: go vietname must be careful is the "taxi driver", dont fully trust the meter~!
Komarov D. Business travelers Czech Republic, September 8, 2012
The best choice if you want cheap and good quality

close to the market. very convenient location. the rooms are clean, the staff is friendly. you can park your motorbike in the basement. you can leave things in storage. beautiful rooms with balconies
Travel tip: If you want to save money - take a room without windows (102, 202, 302 ...), they are also good

typical Ho Chi Minh City hotel

located near ben thanh market
Stayed at the hotel overnight when i flew into the city. I booked an aiport pickup and was pleased that there was a man with a sign at the airport ready for me it cost $25 plus tip. Room was ok but the bellboy was annoying as he tried to get me a girl for a 'massage' and called me on my room phone about it as well. The breakfast was standard.
