                    Interesting locality, not far to city. Clean and well equipped room and bathroom, big comfortable bed. Polite and helpful staff. Simple breakfast with choice of western and asian food.

                    A little noisy, which is normal in cities in Veitnam.

                    I found the staff to be very helpful at all times, the motel was old and in some areas showed. But I would stay there again.

                    Its a nice small hotel. The staff is very friendly and the location is perfect, just a 10 to 15 min walk from the centre.

                    The mattress was not the most comfortable

                    Staff very helpful in extending our stay as we arrived a day early. Comfortable rooms and excellent value for money.

                    Bar/restaurant closed relatively early in the evening, although there are other restaurants just along the street.

                    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 .

                    It is easy acess to the major shopping area & nice restaurants around the vicinity.It was great to have a catholic church just across the hotel. My blessing from God!

                    Fantastic boutique hotel at a great price. Rooms were beautiful with fantastic use of natural wood and tile. Our junior suite felt like home. One of our best hotel experiences in Asia.

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

                    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.
