Reviewed 2 days ago NEWvia mobile

Just a little from the main area of town. Super friendly and helpful staff. Very enjoyable breakfast included. Short supply of hot water for showering and a trip to the bathroom in the middle of the night lights up the room. Otherwise, really great hotel with lovely library theme. Would definitely stay here again.

Nice hotel away from the hustle and bustle of the city in a quiet part of HCMC. Helpful staff who have a functional command of English. Good choices for breakfast that are quite tasty. Recommend highly.

Beautiful little hotel in suburban Ho Chi Minh. Only a 10 minute journey into the city but nice and quiet at night. The service at the front desk is exceptional, with the staff willing to help us out in any way possible. Highly recommend.

This place is more of a budget boutique-styled hotel than a high end or even a real boutique place. Location is in a converted apartment building off the main street, about halfway between the airport and the heart of district 1. Rooms are below average sized. Because of poor sound proofing, you hear everything happening next to you and above...

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
