        very nice room and guest house. the staff doesn't speak much English but you should know how to be independent is this case. the only problem is open shaft in the bathroom which brings all the noises throughout the building. so you might have a felling that your neighbours are always showering. during night we couldn't block a light that came through a window

        We stayed two nights in this hotel. This guesthouse is managed by a family. They do everything, cleaning, cooking, laundry, etc. They are very nice people always ready to help their clients. The breakfast for the price that we paid was excellent. The only problem was the matrass which gave me some muscle pains. Overall, very good experience. We definitely recommend this house. You will have for your money!

        Airport Transfer?”
        Mai Vy Guest House (Ho Chi Minh City/Saigon, Vietnam) Overall, not bad. But there are only two major problems with this establishment. The first is lack of Air Port Transfer. Through Agoda, they listed Airport Transfer as one of their services which were non-existent. A friend helped me from the airport to the Guest House (as I only asked for airport transfer from the guesthouse to the airport). However, the host was resistant to arranging it. Eventually, she wrote the address of the airport on a sheet of paper to which I could show the taxi driver. At night time (after 9:30 PM) the place can be a bit noisy so if you prefer to go to bed early, this place may not be for you.

        Clean and quiet place to stay. The only problem are the steps! No elevator. We were at the 5th floor with 84 for steps. This place is not convenient for travellers with knee or heart conditions. It would be better to indicate this problem in your ad. However we enjoyed our staying here as they do their job properly.

        Location is smack right at District 1 and is near a park and numerous places to eat at. Taking off our shoes is a bit annoying and the lack of elevator or even a helpful staff meant we had to carry our luggage up to the 5th floor by stairs. Speaking of the latter, I can understand it's their home too, but the staff or family or whoever was in charge did not make the place feel homey. They don't smile or offer help or do much of anything really besides ignore you. Good thing the place was clean and we just needed a place to sleep overnight.

        Hoping to have a filter item "Room types", because in HCMC, most of the hotels has both domitories and private rooms. Even domitories are not interested, but still it is not possible to exclude ones from the list, and need to guess ones from the prices or stars. If there were "Room type" shown on the hotel list as the 2nd best solution.

        We enjoyed our stay. The staff were very attentive; I believe it's a family operation. They washed my clothes for 1 USD / kilo with 24 hours and did a nice job. There were no insects or other vermin in the room, and the sheets were clean. Housekeeping did a good job of cleaning up. I would definitely stay here again. Only criticism: no breakfast.

        1. Hard to find even with GPS 2. You need to remove your shoes before entering 3. No elevator (6 floor building) 4. Most of the bathrooms have a partly glassed window into the ventilation shaft, so you can hear everything you probably would never like to. Mosqitoes comes as a bonus. 5.I had a pre arranged late check out which was cancelled by the staff in the morning of departure day.

        Decent, if you aren't a hermit.”
        Mai Vy was easy to find and very central, right on the backpacker street. When I arrived, they asked to keep my passport for the duration of my stay. I offered them a different picture ID instead, seeing as it's never a good idea to give someone your passport. I'm glad I did this because when I was leaving, they almost couldn't find it - imagine if that had been my passport.. I booked the single room, and that was exactly what I got. Beware, mine had no windows. Luckily, I was only really planning on sleeping there. If you are not going to be out the whole time you are there, I would not recommend this room. I'm not sure if there are other rooms with windows. The staff were friendly while I was there, I made sure to say good morning and hello whenever I came and left. Some did not speak English, but if I had a question they would get the girl that did speak English to come, so it was fine. The one major issue I had while I was here was noise level. The place is really echo-y so you can hear every conversation from downstairs, children screaming and crying, and people coming and going. One large group arrived a few days after me and once loudly came in a 3 am and played music in the room beside me until 5 am. Facilities were fine, hot water aplenty and air con. Overall, it was only an OK stay, but since I only paid 15 dollars a night, I felt like it was exactly what I paid for.

        It's a family run business so they live on the premises and it could feel like your intruding on their space but they were very helpful and English was excellent. Aircon was great , Internet a little inconsistent, but present. The bed was hard. Location right in the midst of backpacker activities. Highly recommend Saigon adventure motorbike food tour that the staff booked for me. I'd skip the Mekong delta tour. It is located down one of the little alleys off Pham ngu Lao, about halfway through to the next street. There's a neon sign but you can't see it until you are right on top of it. Walking distance to Ben thanh market which i enjoyed and I walked to the war museum too... Only about 20m. I'd stay here again.

        Staff helped with finding way and other practicalities on my first day in Vietnam. It's well located in the backpacker area while still in a fairly quiet alley. It was very clean though very basic - towels had logos of other hotels, some sheets had holes, three beds stand in one room.
