My second time to this very convenient Hotel, European style right next to Pizza Hut location!”
Staffs are friendly and helpful from security guards to receptionists! Suitable for those smaller groups as there are less than 10 rooms! Facilities are a bit old though but everything in good conditions ! Bathroom is a bit dark and weak water pressure !

Quite hotel for the money”
Stayed here few months ago and was not very happy because of A/C were not working. This time I'm glad that this problem has been resolved. For those that need a quite hotel this is it. It is however far from the beach and that was the reason I stayed here. This hotel is more like a house so don't expect services that you normally get at a hotel. Overall, I'm very happy with this stay. Will be back. Thank you.

Nice small valued hotel.”
Nice hotel, showed signs of outdated and a bit far from the beach
It is a great hotel if you known the area since it is far from the beach. A/C needs to be replaced because it couldn't keep the room chill during the day.

Cozy small city hotel”
Airy and big window, Clean, Sweet staff
If I remembered correctly this hotel only has 8 rooms, so it has a rather family feel to it - and it is more than a house than a hotel. Hotel itself is a townhouse right in the heart of the city - meaning about 5km to any swimmable beach; There are some decent swimming pools in Vung Tau, the close choice is Rex Hotel swimming pool (about 15 mins walking from Buffalo Inn) or further there is Imperial Hotel swimming pool (good for one day chilling, they still open for public guests). But people don't really go to Vung Tau for the beaches, it's rather a seaside place with fresh air, a quick getaway from bustling Saigon, but definitely not a holiday treat. We found that room number 5 on the third floor (no lift so ok with ones travelling light) is the most value for money; We tried the penthouse on the top floor, it is ok too. What we love about Buffaloes the most is the tranquility atmosphere, far away from the madding crowd etc. They do dim the light off early at night but just go ahead and wake them it wouldn't be an issue. Breakfast is really small and basic (one bread + some sort of fried eggs + instant coffee) but we always head to Cafe Bistro 99 next to Song Hong Hotel for a cuppa in the morning or for more food options, head to Pizza David. I mean, when you travel with not much expectations, it always turns out to be better and I feel like this is also the case with Buffalo Inn. Remember if you want the best value for your money request room number 5. :)

Small room in the central area”
Decoration only
This is a small hotel. There is no lift. I had to take a luggage to my room by myself. My room was small with nice decoration, but the chair at a dressing table was swaying. There are a few restaurants nearby the hotel. The breakfast was simply, 2 fried eggs, 2 toasts and fresh orange juice. I think this hotel is overpriced. You could find the better hotel in Vung Tau at $50.

Definitely not a good choice to stay”
The Buffalo Inn Boutique Hotel
I don't really like anything about this hotel. I didn't pick up any serious issue but there's no way I am going to recommend it to anyone unless they are on the last minute travel like I was. Overall the hotel is acceptable but the way it's run and managed is poor. My trip was decided right on the weekend and I really did not have many good choices since the hotels in Vung Tau are normally fully booked at weekend, especially during summer time since it's very close to the heart city, Saigon. I was charged and was getting almost nothing except the compulsory bed and a narrow room although they advertised the price was subject to 30% discount already. It's totally not worth it. When I arrived, the reception area was very dark, the receptionist was sitting there still, engaged with her something something, we were not welcome She was sitting there still like she was stick to the chair somehow while talking to me. We then got the room key without instructions how to the designated room. I have to ask and ask all da time to get answers to some basic hospitality matters like that. The room turned out okay but it was not worth the money because everything offered was just bed and bath. Whatever called garden was just a small corner of trees and the hotel location was just a city hotel, although we know we are going to Vung Tau for the beach and (maybe) the swimming pool. Also, the reception area was dark for most of the time, we were a bit scared when we got back the hotel at 11pm, no staffing there, lights out etc Then came the morning of the following day of our stay. I called the receptionist from my room and she told me breakfast choices were just eggs although they listed some more on the menu but she refused to offer because they had to go out and buy them to serve! We checked out in the same afternoon after having the poor breakfast. I plan not to come back nor introduce it to any of my friends.

Valued and quite hotel”
Uniqueness design, quite and comfortable
This was one of many stays at this hotel. I love this hotel in the past for its uniqueness and quite environment. However, this time left a bad taste in my mouth. First, they put me in a room that I hate due to no privacy since it is the room next to their small bar and if I opened the window I would see the front desk. They refused to change room even though I was the one one stay in this small boutique hotel. Room had a bad smell, the smell of old and humidity. Picture frames were left on table unorganized instead hanging on the wall. I will not return to this hotel after this experience.

Was a great stay! Simple & complete breakfast was served, juice, coffee, sunny sides & bacons with bread and a fruit! Recommended for families or couples! Would however recommend to potential travellers to head to Vung Tau on weekends only. I was there on a weekday and it island was so quiet.

nice room, feel like home, clean bed
The mini hotel have only 7 rooms with nice and clean decoration. We like it because it feel like home. We travelled by our own car so we do not need to stay near the beach. However it take only 5minutes to get to the beach.
