"Good value, interesting area, lovely staff"
We stayed a total of six nights in this hotel, four when we arrived in Vietnam and then we booked for another two nights when we returned to Saigon. It is clean and comfortable with airy, spacious rooms and good air conditioning (a must in HCMC), plus a fridge. What really sets this place apart from other budget hotels is Holly and the rest of the staff, who are extremely helpful and do their best to ensure you enjoy your stay. While there are no tea or coffee making facilities, we asked for a kettle and bought our own supplies from the convenience store (there are two within 50m of the hotel), where you can also buy beer. The towels are a bit thin, but very clean, and you may want to purchase a big bar of soap (those supplied are very small, and ours fell down the plug hole!), but these are very minor things to us.While the hotel is about a 30-40 minute walk ($5 cab ride) from the main tourist area, we loved the location, as we felt it was a more genuine HCMC experience. We enjoyed walking down the alleyways and meeting the local people. Do try the local eateries and street stalls (no, we didn't get sick), and there are two good barbecue restaurants in the street. If you can't understand the menu, just point at something in the window or at someone else plate. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here and thought it was great value for money.
