Small room but it's clean and comfy. Hotel located in old quarters, pretty convenient to roam around in the day, head back to rest and change, leave for the night. Many nightclubs and bars within walking distance. There's a nice and cheap banmi store just beside too. Counter is manned 24/7 and staffs are helpful with tour and taxi booking....

Traveling on my mine and needing a break from the bussle of a backpacker dorm, this place is very ideal. Complimentary toiletries, private rooms with personally controlled air-conditioning, and a cheap laundry service. Right next to Downtown Backpackers. A perfect place for anyone needing a detox after Castaways

Great clean hotel cheaper than some hostels. Rooms have air-conditioning and the staff are helpful. Refreshments such as tea or coffee are free of charge and the laundry service is very good. Has a good location and is perfect for a backpacker that wants a break from hostel life! Highly recommend.

Great Place for Vacation. I Wish i can comeback here fastest as i can. Staff are very friendly and helpful they are like friends. I cancel all my travel plan because staying here is too much fun. You can even go out with staff here when they are not working. The hotel room here is very cute and clean.
