Small hotel, old furniture but good location in the traveller area. It's a low budget hotel and is almost the same like the other hotels around. We didn't have a bad experience. Ask for a room with a window. People were friendly

I went with my parents to Ho Chi Minh on end of Feb 2017. After searching, I decided to choose Phan Lan hotel because I can't find the hotel that I used before in the internet. I chose Phan Lan because the reviews said about the superb service from the staff and they can speak English very well. True enough...Tien...

I was very happy with my stay at Phan Lan, especially for the price. Situated in a quiet alley between bustling streets, it's conveniently located near nightlife and restaurants without being right in the middle of things. The staff is very helpful and pleasant. The room was basic but clean and exactly what I needed. It had a fridge and...

There are so many wonderful qualities about this hotel! The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. They were able to help book our bus tickets and provided us with lots of information on HCMC. The breakfast was delicious and sufficient. The rooms were comfortable (nice cozy beds/pillows) and the AC worked well. Hot shower and clean bathroom. Wifi was fairly...

Located in the heart of a backpacker area, Phan Lan Hotel's primary USP is its proximity to a bustling and throbbing party scene littered with pubs and restaurants. However the advantages more or less end there. Here is a summary of our 'to-look-out' points based on our tryst with Phan Lan: 1. This is a budget hotel that does not...

Found in a quiet alley so you avoid the noisy traffic. The walls are hallow so you can hear voices at the corridor. There were renovation works going on next door until abt 7plus. That made the experience less pleasant. All said the accommodation is extremely cheap for the location. Room is very basic. Clean and decent. Highly recommended for...

Guesthouse Phan Lan is the perfect place to stay! The staff is the best and so friendly, you get a good breakfast, you have a clean room with all the facilities you need, you are in the center of the backpackers area but in a quiet alley what makes it the perfect combination, walking distance for exploring the city (War...

We arrived to Saigon at a very uncovinient time - 4.20am and finding a place at that time might not be the easiest. At Phan Lan you'll get excelent rooms (clean, wifi, tv, A/C, fridge), delicious breakfast, very cheap beer (10K VND) and the kindest owners/workers. Some might think that 20USD/night might be too much for a 1 star hotel...

This was a lovely place to stay. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. The staff were amazing, very helpful and lovely people. They sent a shuttle to the airport and collected us in the evening, our breakfasts were cooked as we ordered, and it was a great price! Lots of backpackers using the hotel. It was also in...
