Dear fellows, visiting Vietnam should start and end with a stay in ROYAL SAIGON GUESTGOUSE on Bui Vien in district 1. Not only the area itself is vibrant and buzzing and therefore a perfect area to discover Ho Chi Minh City. The guesthouse is being runned by a German-Vietnamese cultured couple. Everyone is superfriendly, welcoming and helpful at any time....

We stayed 3 nights with my girlfriend in this small guesthouse and we felt very good right from the beginning. We had a double room that was ok, obviously no luxury but it was enough for us. The restaurant was really nice and we felt great downstairs eating and drinking very good food and smoothies. Staff was super friendly and...

Very easy going place nice quiet place amongst the chaos that is Bui Vien st. The place is clean and the management are helpful. I will definitely stay here again. The rooms have everything you need. More than happy I would recommend The royal Saigon palace to solo travelers and couples

We stayed in the Halong Room for 3 nights. Great Wifi, A/C, refrigerator, rain shower and desk with a chair. Super friendly staff. Great location. Quiet Room. But there were problems. Would have been nice to have our room serviced during our stay. After first night we had to ask for towels, shampoo and soap. After the second night and...

It was everything you could ask for in a trip in a new, unfamiliar place. I was able to speak with the owner way before my trip even started, and I immediately felt comfortable already without having yet arrived there. He not only booked my rooms but he also helped me book tours and gave ideas on where to visit!...

Iny and the guys at Royal Saigon are truly warm and friendly people, they speak fluent English and German and run a clean and safe guest house with nice rooms. The restaurant has great Vietnamese food, and just got an even better menu. Even though I would trust them with anything I have, there are security boxes in the rooms...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are Vietnamese who were born and raised in Germany. We love to host, inspire and share happiness with the people we are with. We truly believe happiness lies in interaction, laughing, dancing, eating, drinking and sleeping. :-) We decided to go back to our actual home country and settle in the most busy backpacker area of Saigon to be able to welcome travelers from all over the world. We speak English, German, Vietnamese, Cantonese and aim to comfort you with transparency, solidity, cleanliness. We'd love you to stay in one of our well looked after bedrooms which include: Aircon, rain shower, safe, high speed wifi & flat screen TV. -Come as guests and remain as friends- ... more   less
