The best thing is the staff very polite, special my housekeeper. I had been here for 2 days. Everyone treat me like im their family. Thanks all When I was there is no more deluxe room so I get the one with couple room. The price is about 65 USD.

Very good hotel and lovely receptionist staff with name Ms Ngoc. Nice view and easy to travel in the centre. I stayed for 2 nights and receptionist helped me so much about foods, tours and interesting places in Saigon. I Will be back with my friends soon.

Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 day stay here! The room was small but there were just the two of us, it was just right! The bed was very comfortable, the amenities basic but there. A little worn but we were in Vietnam to enjoy the place and that we did! A note of interest... It's smoker friendly! Staff were accommodating and helpful with directions getting out and about. Language barrier was an issue by we figured it out :) There are a lot of restaurants within short walking distance and there is so much to see along the way. Organized a foot massage in our room and wow what a treat! Be warned, this isn't a namby pamby warm and fuzzy foot massage, it's deep tissue by a well trained masseuse, wee little thing with very strong hands! Highly recommend trying this! Would stay here again.

I used to live just behind this hotel so when I went back to HCMC on business I was happy to stay here. Slap bang in the city centre with loads of bars & restaurants nearby. Rooms are fairly compact but very comfortable and all have free wifi and even desktop computers. It's a quiet location by HCMC standards so no noise issues. Staff are really, really nice and helpful and speak good English. Only negative was the breakfast which, even by Vietnamese standards, was dreadful. After the first morning I didn't bother & had breakfast on the street nearby. Otherwise, a very pleasant stay.

I stayed for 2 nights, the room was ok for 1 person. Quite small but comfy. The only problem I faced there was no window in my room. You can sleep until night not knowing the sun has risen. Overall it was a good night sleep and easy to find food.

My wife and I stopped in for food in passing . The food was fine , but while eating we observed very dirty bins being brought through the restaurant reception area by the hotel door staff. The very dirty bins were brought outside to be emptied and brought back inside . At least one of the two staff carried on with their business without washing their hands. I have to say I was shocked at this.

Staff is very attentive. Good buffet breakfast, nice setting. Clean & tidy room/bathroom. Comfy bed. Excellent wifi signal. One drawback was that there was too much furniture in the room & no place to open the suitcase.

Stayed 4 nights at A & Em Hotel @ Thai Van Lung. Average room. Clean & tidy. Decent breakfast. Located at District 1. Lots of Japanese eatries around. Massage places located nearby too. Pricing a little steep for their room standard.

I am surprise by this quality of services. Worker speak english and really helpfull. Standard room do not have window but it is clean, well prepare. I did forget my bag and they helped me to see camera and to understand where i forgot it. It is nice to know this place is quite safe.

I stayed over at room 706 for 2 nights from 29th to 31st this week. This hotel is v tiny for hcm standards. Overall it's a clean hotel perfect for a short stay in japanese district except for a few points which everyone should be prepared for; - this hotel is dodgy: pls be prepared there are many call girls in the hotel and this is not surprising since it allows short stays in chunks of 3 hours. One of the bell boys even approached my male friends for call girl services?! I was disgusted! - this hotel only has 1 key per room! I asked many times for another key and even offered a deposit but to no avail. - the staff who cleaned up my room on31stdec morning deserves a commendation. I left my iphone 6 by accident in the room and returned an hour later at 1 pm to look for my phone. The staff was helpful and honest. They even tried to set aside my phone in an enclosed envelope. I was impressed by the honesty of the staff on 31st Dec at 1 pm. I missed getting the name of the staff who returned my phone in mint condition but I hope to show my appreciation with this review. Overall I would say I had a pleasant stay with a&em. I probably won't stay with the hotel in future due to it being a love motel with call girl services. The honest helpful staff on 31st dec 1 pm deserve a commendation though for their great service and honesty!
