Stumbled on the this place arriving in HCMC late at night and not having much time to be choosy. The hotel is basic on the outside and inside, but it's clean with reasonably spacious rooms and good value. And despite my attempts to knock down the price staff remained in good humour and helpful.

Ideally situated in district one, very close to the opera house, and not far from the living part of the district. Other side there is a nice zoo to visit. Clean rooms, friendly staff, good location. Only good points from my part. I'll go again there.

The first room we were assigned had a defective sink that drains to the floor, we later transferred to another room but this time the sink does not drain at all! Maintenance is not a top priority here. They include breakfast here but you might... More

This hotel is a great place to stay, it's right at the heart of the night-life area of Saigon, close to everything. Just one step outside and you have nice restaurants (VNmese, Japanese, Italian, Indian...) and thousand of convenient stores, some nice place to do shopping, some great places to dance and drink. You cannot find another nice place with... More
