      Great Hotel, Great Location”

      I stayed at the Bong Sen Saigon before and decided to try the annex this time. My room was a little small but not uncomfortable. The two "musts" good air conditioning and a hot shower both there. The Restaurant is Buffet style with a heavy emphasis on vegetarian, and although I am not one I was more than satisfied with both the food and the Preparation The staff is very friendly and helpful.. The location is great and I was able to walk to CITI where I trust the ATM, Ben Thanh Market (a must for any Saigon visitor, and the war Museum (as a Vietnam war vet it was painful but well done). On a return visit I tried to stay there again but they were booked up. It is a very nice Hotel in a great location. Stay there. I am a 72 year old solo traveler and I do a blog of my adventures, travels (mostly south east Asia) tips and comments at https://asiadiver.wordpress.com/ I have no obligation to anyone I write about

      I am familiar with sister hotel Bong Sen, as it was fully booked opted for this location Bong Sen Annex. You get what you pay for, and the room was as expected. Perfect for short stop over inexpensive accommodation and central . Rooms however are small, even in choosing a larger room, and unfortunately there is a bit of a damp smell.

      One of the best bargains in HCMC. Close to Dong Khoi and the river. Be sure to take the fast boat to Vung Tau for the day. Easy walk from the Bong Sen Annex. Not nearly as stuffy as the Bong Sen and less expensive.

      close to almost all the sightseeing/shopping points

      this hotel is located at so called down town of ho chi minh city and so very close to many must see places on don khoi street and also to shopping area so that you can buy goods and put them at the hotel and again go and buy.the room is a little bit compact but there is no problem just for sleeping. on the last day before going back to the airport, i could kill time chatting with an american guest who has been visiting viet nam many times during the past 16 years,being offered to share with him a da lat red wine. the farthest place from the hotel (45minutes on foot) is a water puppet theater. i prefer walking than argueing with a taxi driver or being cheated.

      Great location”

      10 mins from airport. Central.
      Breakfast finishes at 9am

      This is the second time that we have stayed at the Bong Sen. We chose to stay here again as the hotel is a 10 min drive from the airport and then once you get there it is central to everything you need. Two mins one way and you are at the river and two mins the other you are in the thick of the shops, resturants and bars. It is also only a 10 min walk to the museums and places of interest. The reception staff are very helpful, however, their level of English is not top level, but enough for us to communicate with each other! We stayed in an Economy room, which had a double bed, balcony, seating and bathroom with tub, and also a mini-bar. We found the room to be very clean and comfortable. The worst thing about our stay is that breakfast is from 6.30-9.00, which, when on holiday is a bit early. However, if you do make the effort there is a good choice from the buffet and you can ask the chef for anything you like. The resturant is on the 7th floor and is quite pretty with a little outside eating area too. If we go back to Saigon, we will be staying at the Bong Sen again.

      Reasonable rate for a hotel at CBD of HCMC. High Speed Internet. Nice room. Warm and polite staff.
      Probably if the hotel to need improve on its service is the re-fill food during breakfast as it's sometime not quick enough during busy morning during our stay there.

      Love this hotel, and for sure will recommend to other if they will visit Ho Chi Minh for its best rate, clean/nice room, location. What's more our room upgraded to family room. Very nice !.

      the hotel is convinient located in the center of HCMC, it is clean and staff are quite helpful
      The hotel is clean but it is in need of renevation in some areas. The breakfast was adequate but some more choices would be preferable

      The stay at Bong Sen Hotel Annex hotel was my pleasent and although I stayed there many times in the past it was about 2-3 years since my last stay. The hotel is convinent located, but it starts to show its age. The overall design is perhaps a bit cramped compared to some other hotels, but for a short business stay it is ok. I would recommend the hotel to invest in renovation such as painting and replacing old equipment. But as I said, for a short business stay it is quite ok.

      OK..BUT!!”

      Clean and generally friendly. Great location. Rooms cleaned properly each day.
      'brick' pillows. Mini fridge use not monitored correctly

      Our stay at the Bong Sen Annex was good with a few exceptions. The friendliness of most staff was very acceptable. Although the breakfasts were basic they were sufficient to ensure a good start to each day. The two issues that we considered detrimental to our stay were [1]The allowance of some guests to smoke in the foyer and in the restaurant. At one stage I was confronting enough to ask a guest to 'butt out' or move away. Thankfully he complied. The second [2] point was the way the hotel maintained a record of mini fridge use in our rooms. They didn't!! The cleaner merely assumed the water bottles in the room came from the fridge without checking, and reported the number to the front desk who then proceeded to demand payment. We did not use any fridge beverages [as is our normal procedure] The ensuing argument at the desk when trying to catch out taxi to the airport was a sour taste to leave on. We paid merely to get on with our journey

      Welcoming attractive lobby, friendly courteous staff, good breakfast - plenty of variety, and central location.
      Footpath outside not always easy to negotiate with building going on next door. Room had rather a shut-in feeling - smallish window.

      The Bong Sen Annex has more pluses than minuses. It's just off the main street so fairly quiet but certainly close to all the action, shopping, cafes etc. Very good value for money - cheap to eat in the cafe for dinner as at some local cafes and food was very tasty.

      The Bong Sen is conveniently located on Dong Khoi. Reception staff is friendly and compentent, unless you have a problem to deal with. We had a room to the backside to avoid the street noise, but that proofed not to be a good strategy, since the aircon units on the outside of the "patio" window were probably louder. Aircon is noises.

      Our stay was very good. The hotel is centrally located, close to many tourist attractions, shopping areas and good restaurants. The room was big. Breakfast is not a highlight (if you wake up late you'll find it empty) and staff is not so welcoming. Despite this, Ho Chi Minh is full of things to do so it's good/clean for spending the night.

      Friendly staff (incl maids & doormen)

      We had another very enjoyable stay at the BS2 hotel. The staff were helpful and friendly and the hotel is in a good location. The front rooms (City view) can be a bit noisy due to the traffic and blaring of horns, but what can you expect in Saigon?! The rooms were very well kept and very clean indeed. The only drawback was the buffet breakfast which usually ran out quite early and not a great choice of food. I would definitely recommend this great little hotel.
