“Perfect for stopover”
Reviewed 25 March 2012

We stayed 1night as it was very close to the airport, we were picked up by a private car from the hotel with a very pleasant driver who spoke English. The room was more than adequate basic but very clean as was the whole hotel. There was a nice coffee shop bar called Lukey8 which we enjoyed for an hour or so before returning to the airport. We intend to have a stopover on our return home. Very good value.

Room Tip: No lift but plenty of help to carry cases, so no problem what floor on.

This hotel has weird location, it is about 20min by bus the the center - so quite long time. Some said it is good, cause is close to the airport. Yes, but if you stay in the center, you could go by public bus for few usd and the difference between taxi price from here and from the center isnt so high...
The room was quite poor, in bathroom was leaking ceiling, when somebody upstairs had a shower. It was really unpleasant. Staff was friendly and nice and what made me really smile was the fitness - small corner opposite the reception in the hall. There are much better hotels in Ho Chi Minh City for sure.

We got this room based on proximity to the airport and price, since we only needed a spot to spend the day and evening before our night flight. It was better than the hotel we paid much more for across town earlier in our stay! Wonderful service, very friendly owners, and a very comfortable room! Great shower with hot water AND water pressure (seems to be rare in Vietnam to have both at the same time) They even brought us a welcome drink. It was strange to have a room with no windows, but as we weren't spending the night, it didn't bother me. They serve some of the best coffee I've ever tasted downstairs. Wi fi works great in the room. Beware of scammy taxi drivers at the airport. They know fully well where this place is, but either pretend they don't, so they can drive you around with the meter running, or they want a ridiculous flat fee. You have to make it clear to them that you KNOW this place is VERY close to the airport. I was SO burned out on these guys by this stage of our trip that it was a breath of fresh air when the owner offered to drive us back to the airport in his car for only $5 US. Not the best location for sightseeing from, but very close to the airport, and wonderful service.

We stayed at this hotel for a night because we wanted one that was close to the airport because we had an early flight. As others had said, the taxi driver did try it on a bit, but in the end we paid 5USD which I think was fair. When we got there we were greeted by a very nice, helpful lady who spoke good English. The staff got our room ready and carried up our rucsacs while we had a lovely watermelon juice....this was in spite of the fact that we had arrived early and check in should normally be after midday. All in all the staff made us feel very welcome and we would like to give them a good review. We were taken by car to the airport in time for our early flight, for which the hotel charged a reasonable rate, clearly displayed on the desk.
We have rated this hotel very good, because there doesn't seem to be a "good" option! This is because of the staff. We liked the area too; it was down a quiet alley - well, as quiet as you are going to get in Ho Chi Minh! HOWEVER I do have to say that the rooms were noisy - this is no-ones fault particularly. It's just that all the rooms have echoing tile floors, and the corridors are also all tiled, which amplified the noise from other guests. It sounded like someone was rearranging the furniture in the room above us pretty late at night. Then other guests holding conversations late also echoed around the corridors outside the room. If you are a light sleeper, you will find this bothersome.

Room Tip: As I said in the main room, we found this hotel noisy. This isn't anyone's fault, it's j...

This place was amazing. I contacted them telling them I was going to be late and please save my room. As soon as I got in, in the morning the room was ready and I could go to sleep.

The staff is WONDERFUL! They welcomed me with a welcome drink, they were ALWAYS more than helpful to provide service. Whether it be a motor bike, phone call, or reminder. They were seriously excellent! The service here is 5 star. They always helped me and had a smile on their face.

They also helped me book tours, and gave me directions how to get around HCMC by moterbike, Even the little things made a huge difference, bringing me a water when I was sitting at the computer, turning on the fan, etc.

If I were to stay any place it would be here!! As much as they are alittle far from district one, it is worth the distance!

I cannot say speak high enough praises for this place!
