Room was superb, location perfect, staff extremely helpful. I accidentally left my brand new Samsung phone in my room after checking out and after leaving the country 8 hours later via email they are posting it back as I write this review. Not much else to say really but I am very very grateful and this hotels staff are incredibly honest and helpful which I truly appreciate.
I have stayed in numerous Hotels in HCMC and this rates amounst the best.
Great location in the Western tourist area, good price, comfortable Hotel with good ammenities
and a very good selection buffet breakfast.
All the staff was very helpful and nothing was to difficult for them.
Recommend this Hotel to anyone.
Apart from a couple of minor niggles this is a great place to stay. It's in a busy street with heaps of eateries, bars, spas, atms. May be a bit too lively for some. Up on the 5th floor we were not disturbed at all. A 15 minute walk away are some great markets, maccas, kfc (if you are crazy) etc. The Indian restaurant across the road serves nice dosas etc. ABC bread, 5 min walk away has great pastries and coffee. Plenty of good local cuisine choices.
The room was on the small side but not too bad apart from a tiny window. Large comfy bed, grainy tv, nice bathroom facilities. Top notch breakfast in room on the top floor with fantastic views. The bar on the roof has fantastic 360 deg views and a lovely garden. Wee bit pricey drinks. Did not eat there.
Minor niggles? There was some subtle pressure to use their own travel agent (in basement), and the roof top restaurant. I had booked tour online but had not heard from them so I asked the desk to ring them and ask if I had a confirmed booking. I was directed to the agent who promptly sold me his own tour. Also, when I asked for a room with a larger window I was told (lied to) that I had been given the best room, I was lucky cos all other rooms had no windows at all. But overall I would 100% stay there again. Every single one of the staff are super friendly. Wifi quality is not too bad. Apologies to the great helpful door-man whom I forgot to tip in my hurried checkout - he was great and deserved a big thank you and tip.
We were really pleasantly suprised by the Vien Dong considering we paid so little for it. We had a suite, which was really spacious and gave us a living area separate from the bedroom. The hotel is in an excellent location, perfect for exploring HCMC. The staff were incredibly helpful and polite. All in all a great stay and I would definitely recommend.
Excellent location in the heart of the action packed backpacker area and within comfortable walking distance to all the must see sights of District 1. No frills, but the room was clean as was the bathroom. We had the city view room and it overlooked the corner of De Tham which made for fun people watching out the window. The street is quiet,the windows are double glass so when closed there was very little noise. Computer as good wifi. Coffee and hot pot as well. 24 hour staff, so our initial arrival at after 2 a.m. was not a problem. Breakfast is served in the lobby and is included.
We stayed here two nights and chose to come back for a third after a trip to Nha Trang. Good value for the money.
"Great location, yet quiet room and friendly staff."
The staff were extremely helpful & polite; great location right in the backpacker area yet we heard no noise in our room besides the occasional chicken! Room was very clean and comfortable. Great value for money too!
Good location, clean rooms, and most importantly, very kind employees!
They told me a lot of useful travel tips.
It was so fun to chat with them.
This hotel uses card keys to enter rooms. It's very convenient,
They have even in-room safes!
There's many inexpensive shops and restaurant aroud here.
I enjoyed local Vietnamese foods everyday! (Btw, noodle or curry are less than 3 USD)
I'm sure I'll book this hotel next time I come to HCMC.
