          Value for money and also the staff were amazing

          Location was abit out of the way but that is what we paid for

        • Couple
          9.6

          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

          When it was time to leave

        • Family with children
          8.2

          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.

        • Single
          8.8

          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 .

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          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!

        • Couple
          10.0

          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.

        • Single
          7.4

          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.

        • Single
          7.4

          Staff very polite and helpful, good location, quiet and clean. Nice simple design.
