They Made a mess with our laundry, and lost 1 of my dress. Poor breakfast.close to downtown city centre, internet available in roomms too. Very hard to find it, taxi drops you off nearby. Clean rooms , toilets were small , travel agency next door. I think i wont come again.

There was a small problem with our booking which was done some time ago with a previous staff member. However, the manager Ms Ha immediately found a solution by getting us into a room in the hotel across the alleyway. She was very professional and we felt there was no need to be concerned and we were right. Ms Ha...

I would definitely recommend anyone staying at this guest house. We have stayed in several 'top choices' in the Lonely Planet but this is by far the best. Great location, excellent value for money and the staff are lovely and very helpful! We stayed in a small double room which was totally fine if you are only staying for a...

Clean & great location in the heart of District 1. Only negatives are that they get you on the exchange rate if you pay by card & overcharge for a taxi to the airport - it's best to book yourself via Vinasun if possible.

We had a great stay at Giang Son Guesthouse - right in the middle of it all, and very easy to get to things. The staff was especially helpful whenever I needed something and I had many special requests as I was trying to find my Vietnamese family in Ho Chi Minh without speaking much Vietnamese :) Their breakfast was...

This place is about two dollars more than the others in the alley but it's worth it. The beds are extremely comfortable - the best is experienced in vietnam - and the staff are lovely. Breakfast is included - baguette and egg etc, standard viet fare. Everything is super clean and the decor is minimally sophisticated.

We stayed only one night but it was great, we had arranged a pick up at the airport with Giang Son just to make it easier on ourselves it worked out great. We toured around the area lots of sites to see in old Saigon. Lots of shopping and markets as well. The staff at the hotel were very helpful...

This little hotel in the middle of the backpacker area in HCMC is a place of peace in that lively surroundings. From the hotel you reach most of the touristic palces by foot. After arriving you get a cold drink and can sit down to rest at the lobby. The rooms on the backside are small but clean. Maybe the...

We booked in total 4 nights with Giang Son however we had the room in three different hotels in the same alley, one of it did not have hot water (Hotel Victory) and they wanted to charge us the same price (we had a tiny discount at the end). They also organized a taxi for the airport which we realized...
