Fantastic budget hotel for 4 nights in HCMH. Room was clean, shower was hot, A/C great. We stayed on the second floor for the first two nights and unfortunately was awakened very early due to a constantly crowing rooster. They moved us up to the fourth floor when we asked for the remaining 2 nights and it was much better....

After some bad experiences in Hoi An it was nice to stay in good hotle like this one. it fulfilled all our expectations since it maintains a high standard for the given price range. Rooms are clean and the A/C isn't too loud at night and works efficiently. However, in our room, the window wasn't sealed very well, which means...

I usually stay at the Ngoc Linh Hotel when I am passing through Saigon. I always get a friendly welcome from the staff who look after me during my stay. The rooms are clean and compact but have all the facilities one needs for a short stay. The Wi Fi reception is very strong. Breakfast is small but adequate. At...

The room cost about $A 26 per night and at this price the value is fantastic. The only difference from a more expensive hotel was the size of the room - smaller and the bathroom which was a traditional Vietnamese style bathroom where the shower is not enclosed. If you only take short showers this is not an issue. The...

I loved my stay here, for the price the room was very clean and comfortable, breakfast was basic but there is something for everyone, location was great, just round the corner from all the nightlife, everything you need is on your door step, cant rate highly enough.

My girlfriend and I were travelling around for 5 weeks and this was in my top 3 hotels of the whole trip. The location is perfect if you want to be around the Pham Ngu Lao area, but the alleyway along which it is located is very quiet at night and so sleeping was no problem. The hotel itself is...

Tucked away in the busy backpackers area, Ngoc Linh Hotel is about 15-20 minutes walk from most main attractions. The staff were friendly and helpful, assisting us with transport to/from the airport, booking tours and restaurants, and organising taxis, all with a smile. The breakfast choice was relatively limited but still hit the spot. The room was adequate and certainly...
