              A very good location with great staff will see me booking there again. While the room itself was small the bed was very good as was the water pressure in the shower. The room I booked had a balcony and considering it is on a main street it was surprisingly quiet. The staff were very helpful at all times and did all they could to assist.

              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.

              Manager listened to complaint about food in restaurant. Was eager to get problem solved. Clean, safe and close to everything

              Food situation was settled by General Manager. Needs travel brochures advertised in foyer. You have to ask for things even though you are not familiar with tourist tours etc., Reception does not give you any information. I went to Tourist Info. Bureau to sort out my travel arrangements and tours. Restaurant could not give me food items I wanted. Manager said she would sort this out with the restaurant. Had to eat at Italian Rest next door.

              Price, location and breakfast

              Good central place to stay, good cheap price offered, included breakfast which gave a reasonable selection to choose from. The hotel is so central that it is walking distance from everything and otherwise there's plenty of taxis around to run further around town. For the price I would stay here again and recommend this hotel to others wanting to find a cheap and clean place to stay in the middle of the city.

              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.

              Good Location & cost effective”

              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 but small room”

              Friendly service, great location and quiet neighbourhood
              Room too cold; couldn't quite adjust the air-contioning

              without a doubt this hotel is in a convenient location and it's rather quiet at night. the pillows were a bit hard and hard. one can easily find a more comfortable and spacious budget hotel at similar rate, which i did in the end. the buffet breakfast is standard fare. it's a pity considering the location it occupies.

              Comfortable stay in a central location of HCMC”

              The location is the best part of this hotel, Smack in the center of Ho Chi Minh City
              The hotel is small and therefore limiting for families or travellers who wants access to hotel amenities such as gym, pool, spa, fully equipped business center, etc.

              My travel was for a meeting in HCMC and I wanted a hotel close to the meeting venue. The hotel is a relatively short drive from the airport and I had no problems to get a Taxi to find it. The hotel is rather small and the room I got offered no view. However, this did not matter as I did not spend a lot of time in the room, mainly to sleep. The buffet breakfast is rather limited but sufficient and the view is nice from the top floor where breakfast is served. The staff were helpful, but I did not use many services from them so I am not sure about their qualification to help with more complex tasks such as booking trips etc. All in all a good place for the short stay in the center of HCMC.
