                  Fantastic location”

                  You can't beat this location. Right across Ben Thanh market on a side street with a nice area to sit out front and watch the never ending action. Vivian is a fantastic Receptionist who was always friendly and willing to offer advice. Tongan was working non-stop and made our breakfast enjoyable with his quick service. Rooms are a bit small but comfortable and we had no trouble sleeping at night.

                  Absolutely what you need for a 1 night stay.”

                  It is high-class in its class. Best location near Ben Thanh Market. As a frequent 1-2-night(s)- stayer in Saigon, I will certainly be a regular. You get the 'night market' right under your feet for gifts or personal shopping, or you can go to the Saigon Square, which is 5 min walking away, you get the Hai Lua Restaurant for dinner, you get some sport and pool bars right around that area. Oh, and some rooms have personal jacuzzi! It is a 20/20.

                  The rooms are very small so make sure you choose a more premium room if staying here. The shower was a worn down bath tub and simple shower head that leaks and wets the whole bathroom. Honestly other hotels around are better.

                  Family Friendly hotel for just about any kind of traveler(s)”

                  I have stayed at this hotel a couple of times previously, and the experience has been pretty consistent. And I must say that this is definitely due to the dedication and hard work of the front line staff. I would like to mention two staffs in particular: (a) Vivian: A pleasant lady who is willing to attend to your every requests, paying attention to all the small details (creating a very unique and tailored experience). She is also willing to share more about local places to eat or visit, instead of the usual go-to places from Tripadvisor. Her attention to detail creates a unique experience for all guests. (b) Emily: Instead of being greeted with the clockwork faces of generic receptionists, Emily's pleasant smile will definitely bring warmth to your stay at this simple but homely place. A plus point is she is also great with kids! She is also quite knowledgeable about the local nightlife scenes (for younger folks!) Oh, both of them speak good English as well!

Room is as cosy as before except the bathtub is getting a bit old and lack of maintenance… other than that A & Em tis particular one is more pricey but it's good for 1st time traveller who doesn't know where to go about…

                  This is a nice little hotel across the street from Ben Thanh Market. We got the VIP room which is large but climbing in and out of the jacuzzi to take a simple shower is a little dangerous. It's best to shower with a friend. The breakfast is weak, so go across to the Ben Thanh for breakfast. Great ambiance there. Lots of good restaurants nearby too.

                  Awesome location!”

                  I prefer hotels with a pool and a gym but you can’t beat the location. Half of the staff are friendly, the other half ignore you. Special mention to kind Vivian at the reception desk and Tong-An who worked tirelessly at the breakfast buffet and was always busy cleaning the lobby, serving people and never seemed to stop moving. Breakfast changed daily with eggs cooked to order and a different noodle soup option everyday. The front area was nice to relax and watch the world go by. Will stay again for sure!

                  Location is good. The toilet is terrible”

                  The bath tub is old and dirty, the toilet is smelly and i don't want to stay a minute in the toilet. I went to a spa to take shower instead of taking shower there. I am not a picky guy but i strongly recommend anyone to think twice before one books this one.

                  Great location - right opposite Ben Thanh market though rumours :P say that goods in the market area, being more tourist-oriented, are more expensive than usual. There were some small cockroaches in room upon check-in. I asked staff to address this during room cleaning the next day, but they were kind enough to also spray insecticide during the time I was outside that first evening. (I managed to kill most of the roaches I saw, myself) I was asked on the 2nd day if I wanted to change my room. Although I said there was no need, I really appreciated the gesture.

                  Good if you like night market life”

                  Overall, a good hotel. My room was nice and quiet, very tidy and functional. I booked a windowless room, which I prefer because there is no noise leaked into the room. The A&Em chain has such rooms in all their hotels and could be an advantage for those who do not like noise. I tried this location for the first time by mistake. It is right in the center of the night market, which is good if you like that sort of thing. For me, it is too much stimulation so I avoided the whole thing while staying there for three nights. The staff is generally very good, although sometimes indifferent. The breakfast is terrible, but plenty of options elsewhere to eat so do not let that discourage you you want a clean, no fuss, nice staff, and good location, considering the night market factor.

                  Stayed here before and will again. Clean rooms, good ammenities. Still don't know why there are 2 desktop computers in the room. Neither of which run very well. Breakfast is good. Location is the biggest plus. Right across from Benh Thanh market. Nightlife within 10mins walk in any direction. Will stay here again

                  This trip was with a big group around 12-15 people and it was a easy place to meetup as some of my friends stayed elsewhere. The hotel is well located and we could go anywhere easy from here. The services was excellent as reception and staffs help us get taxi and directions. Well done!

                  free good breakfast, clean and district 1 central.

                  Came back to Saigon again for the weekenvd. Stayed here.for a night. Paid 54 SGD.(published rate.at 84SGD) thru Agoda with pts discount with free bottle of welcome beer and breakfast. This is the better A&EM.hotel among the 8 of them. Located.just next to Ben Thanh market) and I got a 2nd floor as it was booked out. Clean room with all room amenities. Powerful airconditioning. Good reception TV . Bath tub has Jacuzzi. Strong water both hot and cold. Room also have a computer. The room has a elegaant feel setup. Our room faces street.so we.could hear some street noise.but not too disturbing. Higher floors may also have some city views. Breakfast has a local asian spread which I think exceed my expectation for a 3 stars hotel. Dining area was clean and free of smell. Receptionist speaks english. Checking.in.and out was fast. Polite and courteous porter boys. For a 3 stars, its cindition and price, i think its worth it.

                  Stayed there 4 nights during the period of new year countdown. The room bed is comfortable. There is wide range of tv channels. There is a computer but no audio system. Location is just beside Ben than market. Overall I enjoyed my stay and I must commend the staff for being understanding, as they allow me to extend my check out timing by 1 hour. I would probably consider coming back if I ever come to Ho Chi Minh for vacation

                  Great hotel right smack in front of the Ben Thanh Market, food, entertainment all within walking or a short cab ride away. VIP room was big, bed was comfortable, room was quiet. Breakfast was adequately balanced with Asian & Western dishes. The nightly night market is right in front of the hotel door.
