      Location, Excellent Staff, Clean!

      Speedy check-in, staffs are all very friendly & helpful. Communication is not a problem at all, they speak good English. The staffs are forever smiling and warm. Hotel is well located, within walking distance to many attractions in town. Room is spacious, clean, equipped all the necessary (Hair dryer, kettle, minibar, safe, TV..etc). I stayed at level 3, but water pressure never a problem. It is a blessing for a good hot bath after a day out! Breakfast is at the City Hotel - 35 Luu VAn Lang st (which is jz opposite). You will have a selection of food to be picked from their menu. Not to forget, their restaurant located at 5th floor. so, you can a good city view while enjoying your breakfast. I enjoyed my stay with City Hotel- 18 Luu Van Lang St very much! Highly recommended to others travelers!! Good value for the money, and trust me, you will not regret!

      The room is extremely clean. no complaint on the cleanliness of the room and the strategic location.

      I only have good comments for the hotel and stuff. The hospitality with guess, cleanliness in the room is commendable. The location is only 30 seconds walk from the famous Ben Thanh market, within 5 minutes walk from the busy city streets with everything you need to shop for includes currency exchange. It is 10 minutes walk from backpacker's place Pham Ngu Lao and Bui Vien. If you're looking for a quieter place and cleaner area to stay but still very close to most of the happening places either in the morning or night. City Hotel – 18 Luu Van Lang St is highly recommended. Value for money!!

      A Very Good Place to Stay”

      room size, cleanliness, friendly staff

      My friends and I actually stayed at the other City Hotel (an extension of this one) just the other side of the street. From the outside, it looks like a very small hotel but once inside we found that the space is very well managed. The rooms are big, new, clean, and has lots of amenities and freebies - so nice that my friends and I decided to get out a little later the next day to have time to relax before going on with our walking tour of the city. Service is very good - the staff are very helpful and always smiling. They speak good English as well, so communicating with them is a breeze. The guard is a funny guy. He was always laughing, which is a breath of fresh air from all the variety of people we've encountered during our 3-country-tour. Our breakfast buffet - we had to go to City Hotel 2 to avail of it, which is just a minute of walk from across the street. The food is good and the serving is more than adequate. (Note: catsup=tomato sauce) The hotel is at an alley near and a minute of walk away from Ben Thanh Market, and there are restaurants and spas around the area, within 2-5 minutes of walk. One might worry about the noise coming from the market, but the area was quiet at nighttime and we didn't hear a single sound from outside - and our room had a very large window that was facing the alley. Will stay here again when I visit Ho Chi Minh City.

      Stayed for 3 nights, and was very happy with the room. For that price, i would recommend to anyone this hotel (18 Luu Van Laang st) cos the room is spacious, toilet is decent and their breakfast (located a few blocks away) was also acceptable. Though is not buffet style and you can only order 1 set with a free drink, taste was good and portion was also decent. Stayed at many different hotel in HCMC with my family previously, but i must say this is by far the best.

      Friendly and helpful staff, easy access to shopping area, great value for money

      I decided on City Hotel for my stay in HCMC from the reviews of other travelers in Agoda. Initially I was unsure if the hotel would turn out well because it is rather cheap for the three of us traveling. More importantly, it is located in a street just off the hustle and bustle of the main road and it is close to shopping areas like the Ben Thamn Market (just a one minute walk!) However, upon stepping into the hotel, I started to be convinced I made the right choice. The staff were very friendly and already prepared well for our arrival. The security guard was very helpful as well, opening the door and helping us bring our luggages to our room while we settle our administrative issues. Although the staff were not very well versed in English, they still made sure they try their best to understand us and helped us with our requests as far as possible. Once, the security guard even went out to the main road on a bicycle to get a taxi for us, just because the staff could not call through to the taxi company and it was raining rather heavily. Thumbs up for him! All in all, I would say 18 City Hotel has made my stay in HCMC a pleasant one. Great service and great value. I will definitely recommend this hotel to my friend. Thank you to the staff of 18 City Hotel!

      The staff were wonderful, our room was spotless.

      My wife and me stayed in the above hotel between the 12th and 18th of January 2013. When we arrived there (just before midnight) we were greeted by the Receptionist and night porter cum security guard. I was suffering from a very painful, and swollen, foot. The staff could not have been any more helpful than they were. I was given a pain killer, a bowl filled with ice was brought to my room for me to take down the swelling. The following morning I was able to walk, and the swelling had all but gone. Every person who works at this establishment was wonderful to us. We travel all over the world, and have stayed in many,many hotels, but this ones staff, are the best we have ever encountered. They were keen to give us the benefit of their local knowledge, and the tours they recommended, were first class. This was our first trip to Vietnam, and were grateful for the information and advice we received. Our room was spotless,and the decor was pleasant. WE will recommend this hotel to our friends, and if we ever return to Ho Chi Min City, we will definitely stay there again.

      Great stay at the City hotel. They are centrally located and an easy walk anywhere in district 1. The staff was so friendly and always very helpful. The rooms are large with a nice bathroom and a great patio overlooking the street below. It is close to good shopping - markets and high end stuff nearby. It is a very nice walk around to most of the sights in the city and there are parks nearby. Short cab ride to the train station - not sure about the airport. Also, great breakfast with Vietnamese and Western choices for free. Great Vietnamese coffee! Also, it was a great value on Agoda!

      Great location, good room, stiff customer service”

      We loved the location near Ben Thanh Market; within walking distance to all the major sights and shopping. Nice room with big beds for the 4 of us. Disappointing and inflexible hotel policy regarding kids: children over 5 years are considered as adults and must pay 220,000 VND per night even though we were their Family Room which is designed for 4 guests. Many hotels in Vietnam and SE Asia have this policy but this is the first hotel who has strictly enforced it. We're avid, frequent travellers and pretty easygoing but the rigid adherence to their policy without any added cost to them became ridiculous. Usually, hotels have the added charge because breakfast is included in the room rate and thus children over 5 eat enough breakfast to warrant a charge. This was not the case. Breakfast was included in our room rate but not the for the 4th person AND the 220,000 VND did not cover breakfast. It was simply an extra charge. Silly and frustrating. I spoke to the manager but it made no difference. Disappointing really. I'm more than willing to pay for any costs we incur but this was just a money grab. Another disappointment was upon check out. The hotel provides snacks and drinks including water for sale but they provide some water for free. It's confusing and we were not told about it. I read the fine print in the room service book in our room and found the hidden statement. However, it wasn't clear which bottles were free or not. Not an issue really, so we used them all during our stay knowing we'd pay for 2 of the bottles. The issue was they said we used more bottles than we did. They claimed they restocked the paid bottles but 100% they did not, so it because a silly argument over a minuscule extra charge; which I could have easily paid but the fact that they had made a big deal over the extra room charge, I wasn't in a generous mood. Again, we've been to dozens of hotels and really, this is the first one to be belligerent. So I guess if you follow their policies e

      Goof Hotel in a Good Location”

      Clean, Good Reception Service, Good Housekeeping

      Overall good stay at the hotel. Clean room with good housekeeping. Hotel reception staff (Dip and team) were really friendly and accommodating. Only downside was heard a few other guests complaining their rooms were not cold enough. As for the ala carte breakfast, there was plenty of options(local & western) with good coffee but the chef and serving staff wanted to charge us extra for butter to accompany the bread served. That soured the otherwise near-perfect stay at City Hotel.

      Great value for money option”

      Clean and spacious room, polite staff and many international tv channels

      We booked 2 rooms - family room with 2 queen beds and a superior room with 1 queen bed. The hotel does not look fancy but the rooms are very clean and spacious with all the hotel amenities provided. Even the bathroom is spacious. For the price we paid, we received fantastic customer service from reception, guard to cleaner. They were polite, helpful and able to communicate in English. We were also surprised to be able to have selections of morning breakfast options delivered to our room everyday as well as 71 tv channels to keep us entertained. All in all, the best money ever spent on accommodation. Don't expect luxury and I think you'll be pleased with this hotel.

      Excellent rooms, Central”

      Central location, Large clean bathroom, very near Ben Thanh market

      My friends and I had an excellent stay at this hotel. We booked two superior rooms and wanted them close to each other but unfortunately because of hotel layout (only one superior per floor) we did not get this. One of the rooms had an unpleasant bathroom drain odor. Hotel staff were kind enough to replace our room when we brought this to their attention though. The rooms were good. had all the basic necessities you need. Bathroom was spacious and very clean. there are no windows for superior rooms however this did not bother us as ceilings were high so we did not get a claustrophobic feel. This hotel is good as a base to explore the city and its major attractions. Basic breakfast is available it its sister hotel just a few meters away.

      Great location, fantastic price, spacious rooms!”

      Love the location. Not my 1st time here. Will continue to stay here but may opt for City Hotel 35 instead of 18 since breakfast at City Hotel 18 is also held at City Hotel 35.
