After making my reservation for 4 nights for the deluxe/Junior-suite, I emailed the hotel immediately besides Hotel.com asking for a higher-up floor to lessen the noise level during the night since I'm a light sleeper; Hotel.com Rep. had also submitted my request on my behalf, and yet, at the time of checking-in, the staff at Bizu said there wasn't any...

Located in the heart of backpackers area- this place is surprisingly quiet at night. We were based on the 7th floor, rooms were a good size, bathroom was clean although the shower was not so strong (drizzled mainly out of one big hole). Fresh towels were provided daily. There was a fridge and safety box provided. Tv had great satellite...

It is directly in Disctrict 1 with a lot of opportunities for shopping (Ben Thanh market is about 10 minutes away), there are a lot of backpackers in the Bui Vien Street....

Good place to land in Saigon's District 1. Cheap, clean and bright room. Staff were friendly and helpful. If you're looking for a quiet place this is not for you. It's located on the busy and noisy backpacker street. Nice stay but we couldn't check in early which was a drag after 24 hours of travel from Canada to Vietnam.

I had previously stayed in Bizu Hotel at Ho Chi Min, District 1 between 28-30 Sept'14. The stay was pleasant and memorable. Travelling solo, nothing is more important than a place where you can feel safe and assured. Rooms as big and facilities was really good.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights, it was a little difficult to find as it changed its name from Saigon Mini 5 Hotel and we didn't know that. Our room was on the 5th floor but the noise from the bar next door could still be heard fairly loudly. With some earplugs in it wasn't too bad. The...

The hotel is located at the Bui Vien backpacker street. So the clubs and bars all are just downstairs, even just beside the hotel has one of the bars. The music are just too noisy and loud during the night so I wouldn't recommend if you have the difficulty to fall asleep. The room looks less decent compared to the...

The room we stayed had great smell of smoke which left by the previous guest. Try to ask the staff to change room but all room are occupied. Luckily we just stayed for a night. No next time. The shower head spoiled and changed after requested the staff to do so.
