    An absolutely clean , decent hotel away from the hustle and bustle of hcmc yet within walking distance of the Park , restaurants , bars and the backpacker area with access to Travel Agencies selling trips within Vietnam and Indo China .

    One of the check-in staff was rather unfriendly .

    Near to Ben Thanh market and bus station and also a mini Co-op supermarket. A good Pho shop is also nearby.

  • Couple
    9.6

    The hotel's staff is really nice and helpful. They also help me to arrange city tour and suggest some halal foods/Moslem restaurants nearby.

    The room for improvement: breakfast choices. They should consider guests who can't eat porks.
