My husband and I have stayed at Lac Vien on a number of previous occasions. This was to be our last, and in fact we checked out the day after we arrived, instead of staying the 4 days that we had booked.

Lac Vien Hotel is located in District 1 in HCMC. This is an inexpensive hotel close to shopping, good food and nightly entertainment. The hotel is located off the busy road and is clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. If you are looking to a clean affordable hotel in HCMC try Lac Vien.

Reservation not honoured. Probably the most important thing you want as hotel to do when you turn up at 10pm at night is for them to keep your reservation. We arrived on time and they had given our room away. Absolutely the WORST thing you can do to a customer. Horrible experience !!

One of the nicest hotels we stayed in during our trip to Vietnam. The service was very good and the staff couldn't of being helpful. We arrived early and they had the room ready for us in 30 mins. It is a great location, in the middle of everything but yet not a sound in the rooms!

Clean rooms , friendly staff, good atmosphere. The hotel is located in district one but the room was surprisingly quite. Breakfast was pretty good for a low budget hotel, u could choose from different menu items and of course the tea and the coffee. Also everyday 2 complementary water bottles the hotel was providing to his guests. I know it...
