        1970's Hotel - would not stay there again”

        The hotel was very dated DO NOT BELIEVE the picture of the nice room they show on Agoda they stuck me in a dark dingy room with a tiny window. The room is very dated and looks like something out of the 70's Location wise its ok but I would stay close to the walking street next time and while Taxis are cheap it is tedious to have to take a taxi everywhere. Overall is was an OK hotel but for the money I think they are more modern hotels to choose from and if I had the room pictured i might of been a more happy visitor but felt cheated.

        I really did enjoy the stay. The staff was extremely helpful and courtious. My only issue was the bed which was quite hard. Otherwise, the facilities are clean, the staff wonderful, and the location in D1, while not perfect, is close enough that a Grab or taxi is cheap.

        This was a nice hotel in a part of HCMC I haven't stayed. The room was comfortable but I was on a low floor which I don't really like even though I asked for a high floor. Lots of restaurants in the area and it had some night life too. The alleys ways were a great adventure too. Easy access to the rest of the city too but a bit of a walk. I would stay here again.

        The Value for the price, location near Japanese District and Staff

        I stayed for a whole week in Sophia Hotel. The room I was in was fine for the price, better than average I suppose. I have stayed at a nearby hotel that charged twice as much and I agree that it is worth the price there. If you however want to save some money on hotel, Sophia is a good choice but don't expect luxurious stay. Sophia's room is nice and clean but little bit dated so the pictures you see on the website is when everything was new so you know. I can't say much about their included breakfast because I didn't try any( I got up too late for it everyday) I would stay there again.

        Bed was comfy, bathroom was funny!

        It was a nice place, friendly reception. Disappointing to be charged for water from the room, and the 'park view' was a tiny window looking at a wall (could see the park if you squeezed an eyeball through the bar, Fawlty Towers style!). But, natural light is nice. Breakfast was pretty good as far as these things go. Standard orange sugar water and roasted coffee, some cold scramble eggs, milk was empty for the cereal. But yeh actually wasn't bad, I was happy there. Great location middle of town next to Japan Town.

Free breakfast but nothing fancy. Another plus is location. IF you like Japanese food, this is the place for you. Lots of japanese restaurants around the corner of hotel.
