Staff were very good and happy to help and offer assistance, book tours, taxis etc. Rooms small but comfortable. Bookmark Restaurant on 5th floor offers good city views and satisfactory food. Not a lavish menu or drinks list but very...

We stayed at the Alcove hotel on a stopover of sorts, between landing in Saigon after a long haul flight from Paris at 6am and flying on to Danang the next again morning at 7am. Our stay was short but sweet! It's location halfway between the airport and the city centre was ideal for our purposes, with both being only...

This is a beautiful boutique hotel in every way. No wonder Graham Greene loved it! I would recommend it to anyone wanting a break from the madding crowd. Quiet and peaceful; the staff are super friendly and helpful. Very handy location also.

This is a small hotel set off the Main Street and about 4.5 kms walk to the city centre or a 120000/100000 taxi ride one way. We walked and felt safe even at night .The hotel itself offers the basics and no frills but is good value for money for example just under half the price of the Intercontinental in...

This was a nice, off-beat stay tucked away in a back street off the main drag in HCMY. We had a special honeymoon welcome, which was really thoughtful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to The Alcove Library Hotel, an unrivaled boutique hotel experience in the centre of Ho Chi Minh City. We opened our doors in July 2012 and are located just off Nguyen van Troi street, the main avenue connecting the Tan Son Nhat International Airport to the city centre. This prime location offers great convenience to our guests, as the airport and the city are usually only 10 to 15 minutes away by taxi, depending on traffic conditions. Nestled in a charming and quiet neighbourhood street, The Alcove Library Hotel also offers respite from the hustle and bustle of the city, and yet represents a perfect base from which to explore the excitement of Saigon.In keeping with our name, The Alcove Library Hotel offers a sanctuary of deluxe accommodations, architectural elegance and timeless style. Our rooms feature supremely comfortable beds and pillows, over 70 channels on flat screen TVs, and a range of amenities designed to cater to the needs of discerning and savvy travelers.Our hotel is meant to be enjoyed, experienced and rediscovered with each visit. We have an extensive library that offers a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction books for guests to borrow during their stay with us. High-speed wireless Internet connectivity is also available free-of-charge in guestrooms and throughout public areas. Our concierge service can also help tailor a personal itinerary, offering recommendations on places to visit. Our restaurant on our fifth floor, the Roadhouse Saigon, aims to offer the best burgers and contemporary fare in town. Guests can eat in air-conditioned comfort or enjoy the outdoor terrace overlooking neighboring rooftops. At The Alcove, a new level of hospitality in Saigon awaits you, where smiles abound, the service is gracious, your needs are anticipated, and your comfort is our top priority. ... more   less
