                Stayed 2 nights here. Very happy with their friendly staffs. Rooms was clean and spacious. Just 1 minus is I booked non-smoking room but they mistakenly arranged me to smoking room. However, they solve the problem quite quickly afterwards. Highly recommend!

                Stayed in a room with window, but facing inside the Air Well which generate lots of noise from ground lobby up to each floor's corridors. Couldn't rest well and keep awake as there are noise and can hear clearly on guests and hotel staff talking ... Air conditioning system in the room also create funny noise throughout the night (#601).

                Very clean and spcious, good breakfast and not noisy or stained chairs or dirty walls like some say. My park view room 5th floor excellent . What is odd is on internet hotel ranked 5th best in city for happy ending massage 2nd floor ( I did not) and have seen hidden video on internet but they have strict policy no girlfriend can visit without marriage certificate . I even point out to staff and they act dumb about the activity . Good value but I left property because it makes no sense

Please noted that as per the government law, a foreigner cannot share a room with a citizen of Vietnam without a certificate of marriage as a proof. Hotel may reject the booking or request that a second room be booked upon failure to do so base on availability.

                Everything was good. I stayed in the executive suite. Very roomy. It had balconies overlooking the park. That was nice Only downside was a bit noisy. Windows weren't double glazed. Street sounds - honking traffic not blocked much at all. Didn't bother me, but it is noticeable and may bother some.

                We found the hotel to be quite good value for a mid range hotel, staff were very helpful with our requests and we were really pleased with our stay. We did experience problems with the noise from the activity in the park and road noise, but the hotel relocated us to other rooms of our choice which was nice. There is nothing we were unhappy with and certainly would book again if travelling to HCMC.

                I have stayed here numerous time and I am still very happy with this hotel for the good rates, big spacious rooms (always booked the Deluxe suite), friendly staff. Location of this hotel is fantastic, Bui Vien (aka backpackers street) is just behind the hotel within 4 mins walk and have many local food options, bars to offer. Only advice would be to careful while walking around this area with your sling bangs or handphone as I have seen a few cases of snatch theft. Nothing to really be worried about, just exercise the same precaution as you would in any place you travel to. Last but not least, IF your wife is a Vietnamese, you might want to note that the hotel will require your wedding certificate (soft copy) due to local law requirements.

                Big rooms at small prices”

                Location, size of rooms and price

                I have returned to this hotel for the last 6 trips to HCMC. Still a very much preferred hotel for its location. Prices are cheap for a room that huge. Love the balcony which overlooks the busy streets.

                Location, breakfast, value

                The place is located right on Pham Ngu Lao street. Most of the places are walking distance. Buses to any distanations leave from meters away from the hotel. The room was small, but very comfortable and clean, with a nice bathroom. Comfortable bed, which was perfect after a tiring day. Great buffet breakfast with plenty of options. We haven't stayed in other places in the same price range in HCM, but I think Vien Dong is a very good value.

                nice hotel across from park”

                good bed, clean room, nice staff

                Stay at this hotel was fine..staff was very nice...breakfast good...room comfortable. The only problem i had is this hotel is across from a park, which was nice, except at 5am every morning the have aerobics...with loud music on the speakers and the instructor shouting out the moves to the class each and every morning. Impossible to sleep after 5am. I recommend you ask for a room not facing the park if you want to sleep after 5am.

                Comfortable hotel closed to bus stop”

                Very good location. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice room and good buffet breakfast.

                Our bus stopped along the park in Pham Ngu Lao Street, so we just walked across the road to the hotel. With the help from the hotel staff, we can move the luggage, strollers and 2 toddlers much easier. We originally booked Deluxe Double room, but since the bed and room is small for our family to sleep all together, the hotel was flexible to change us to bigger room at the corner, and did our request to change to Deluxe Twin room the next day when room was available. Our little girls enjoyed the breakfast and lunch although they didn't eat much. The house keeping and room service is good. Since we stayed in high floor, we were not disturbed from the noise outside altough our room faces is park view. The hotel location is excellent and easy access to everywhere inclduing markets, shopping centres, hospital, restaurants, pubs,... Everytime we went out and arrived the hotel, the staff always help to call taxi and carry our stuff even sometimes they have to cross the road to get us. Of course we are so thanksful to them for their kind help everytime. We are happy to stay in Vien Dong Hotel and would like to recommend it to our family and friends too. Anyway, one bad experience that we want to share is a taxi driver in Ho Chi Minh City purposely cheated us assuming we didn't know the Vietnam dong. His behaviour was rude and cruel. My husband was arguing with him and almost phone the police, but finally he returned most of the excessive amount back. People along the street who saw us arguing with taxi told us that there are some taxi not belong to company, so it's better we take the company taxi like Vinasun, which clearly show the driver ID card, and avoid small black window taxi.

                Friendly Staff, Clean and Comfortable rooms and best location!

                The staff at the Vien Dong are no exception to the Ho Chi Minh friendly population. They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable, made sure we knew where we were going, how to brush off the street hawkers and how to cross the road! We used this hotel as a base camp for our Ho Chi Minh travels. I cannot speak highly enough of the quality this hotel provides for the low price. I cant wait to head back and can only hope the same staff will be there and that nothing has changed!

                Good mid-range hotel in a great location”

                Comfortable room, comfortable bed, great location

                I had a very comfortable room at the Vien Dong. The hotel is in a great location close to Bui Vien Street with all its restaurants and bars. The room had a good bath, hot shower and range of toiletries. There was a large TV with a range of channels and the bed was comfortable. There was a good spread at breakfast though mostly Asian style food.
