After some bad experiences in Hoi An it was nice to stay in good hotle like this one. it fulfilled all our expectations since it maintains a high standard for the given price range. Rooms are clean and the A/C isn't too loud at night and works efficiently. However, in our room, the window wasn't sealed very well, which means...

I usually stay at the Ngoc Linh Hotel when I am passing through Saigon. I always get a friendly welcome from the staff who look after me during my stay. The rooms are clean and compact but have all the facilities one needs for a short stay. The Wi Fi reception is very strong. Breakfast is small but adequate. At...

The room cost about $A 26 per night and at this price the value is fantastic. The only difference from a more expensive hotel was the size of the room - smaller and the bathroom which was a traditional Vietnamese style bathroom where the shower is not enclosed. If you only take short showers this is not an issue. The...

I loved my stay here, for the price the room was very clean and comfortable, breakfast was basic but there is something for everyone, location was great, just round the corner from all the nightlife, everything you need is on your door step, cant rate highly enough.

My girlfriend and I were travelling around for 5 weeks and this was in my top 3 hotels of the whole trip. The location is perfect if you want to be around the Pham Ngu Lao area, but the alleyway along which it is located is very quiet at night and so sleeping was no problem. The hotel itself is...

Tucked away in the busy backpackers area, Ngoc Linh Hotel is about 15-20 minutes walk from most main attractions. The staff were friendly and helpful, assisting us with transport to/from the airport, booking tours and restaurants, and organising taxis, all with a smile. The breakfast choice was relatively limited but still hit the spot. The room was adequate and certainly...

Only stayed here for one night and had basic room without window. Room was quite small but clean with a big bed. Reception staff were really friendly. Perfect location and no noise at night. There wasn't a fan or any ventilation in the bathroom so it stayed wet and musty. No drinking water was provided. Wasn't bad for one night...

We moved here after a bit of a disaster with our hostel & I'm raging we didn't stay here the whole time in HCMC. The room was spotless clean with AC, bed was comfy and the shower was both powerful & hot. The staff were super nice. Although really close to all the pubs and clubs it was really quiet...

The two staff members who worked the front dest during our stay is what makes me give this hotel a 5/5. They were beyond helpful and arranged so many things for us from flights to tours to airport transportation, not to mention laundry! The rooms are decent, and the shower was one of my first hot showers in quite some...
