The six person dorm was clean and I had no issues with the A/C or wifi. Breakfast was nice and the street is quiet which is a nice change of pace to the rest of Saigon. The staff were helpful and friendly. I would stay there again.

I booked this room online and made sure that I would get a room with a window. Therefor we payed some extra money for a so called deluxe room. I do realize that for the amount of money we pay, we will not get any luxury. But... A nice clean room would be just fine. Small room, tiny bathroom, ground...

We stayed here twice since our flights from and to Berlin went through HCMC airport. Inadvertently, we did a lot to be seen as difficult customers (problems with the first reservation - not entirely on us -, had sent a package to the hotel to be picked up later, and due to sickness changed our second reservation twice). The staff...

Very good quality-price ratio. Clean and proper rooms. Gentle staff. The recepcionist, Lala, was very friendly to us and speaks good English. Option of continental breakfast (omelette, fried eggs, ham and butter with bread...). The area is full of restaurants and shops

I prepaid for two weeks. The wifi never worked and the room was like a prison cell with no windows. I had to leave after the second night and the manager would only refund 3 nights (out of 12). Beware when booking on Agoda! The hotel manager has the power to issue a refund if you can't stay. She could...

The hotel was kind of hard to find. It's located on a side alleyway off of the main road. So it took a while for my wife and I to find it. The attendant at the front desk was very eager to hang onto our passports when we were checking in. It could have been a misunderstanding but she seemed...

My wife and I arrived at midnight on sunday and was told our room wasn't available because the aircon was broken. They put us in the hotel next door which was disgusting!
