Recent guest reviews

My second stay at hotel (last visit 2016). A good budget choice in a street full of similar hotels near backpacker area and Ben Thanh Market without being too close. Stayed in superior room at rear of hotel. Fair sized room with windows note cheaper rooms are windowless. Firm bed good AC hot water kettle to make a cuppa but you must bring your own tea. Bathroom OK but shower is in high bathtub and is difficult to step into. Breakfast is OK for Vietnamese options like soups but poor western food only white bread and jam. Friendly helpful staff.

Nice and quiet, buffet breakfast was good and room was very comfortable. The staff were friendly enough and the location is a short walk to the backpacker area. We stayed one night before we left and we enjoyed a hot bath and the comfortable beds.

We came back to the same hotel which we stayed in 2007. At that time we were very satisfied. Beautiful furnitures (pearl mass coated) , excellent coffee and attendance. We expected something similar but received outdated rooms, with very loud windows and dormitory class beds. One can say you get what you pay for, but for this value this hotel was outstanding in its class some years ago and therefore made us to return back. Actually management lost its key positive features (interior and great coffee) and made it very average ** hotel. So sorry for that. Location is obviously still very good so for non demanding backpackers still OK.

We arrived late night and we were informed that there was no room currently available because a guest extend their stay, then they transferred us to nearby hotel for a night and go back the next day. Breakfast is quite good. The room is clean. With bath tub, and minibar which will cost u a little when consumed.

near to all places, able to walk to all historical places. friendly staffs. good local food such as their beef noodle and Vietnam spring roll. Good massage service, not that cheap but still alright if compare another few shop next road.

This review is only for the massage and not the hotel. Place is directly in the basement level of hotel with outside walk in entrance. For less than $10US for an hour foot massage, and that's fees plus tips and in the end I added remaining dongs as extra tips for a total of 200,000 dongs that was well spent. With all these walking around in HCMC (actually we cabbed everywhere with taxi dirt cheap, didn't even bother with Uber), feet needed some pampering, and this does the job.

The main reason to stay here is because it's decent but inexpensive in a pretty good location. This is a small hotel about a 10 minute walk from the backpacker area. There are a number of restaurants and bars within walking distance in District 1. The hotel is a little old, but pretty well maintained. The room was decent sized, and clean, though there were a few insects in it. The bed was comfortable, and I slept well. There was a small fridge in the room which was good to keep a few drinks cold. Breakfast wasn't anything special, but it was okay. The wifi worked well enough, and I had no problems with the air conditioning.

This older style hotel is clean and it safe. The food in its restaurant is sort of edible nothing like the good street food or restaurant quality it's the equivalent of American Diner quality meals except Vietnamese flavour the restaurant is off an unattended the reception is off an unattended they cannot speak a word of English and do not even try they do not understand sign language very well so if you have a few questions or requests have them written in Vietnamese for them it is situated in a busy part of town easy to go to places and if it's just a quick stay it is pretty good value for the money.

Upon entered the deluxe room, the room are clean. The queen size and pillow is soft and cozy. The important thing is that is has hot shower throughout day to night. Have try Hoang lien hotel spa, it pretty not bad. Not so good in this hotel is that, there is quite a lot of small ant in the room and do not provide daily free water bottle. The pillow case and the bed sheet did not change during the house keeping.

We stayed at the Hoang Lien for two days, it is conveniently located in District 1. We got our day tour buses very close to the hotel. For the price the rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff is polite, there is a nice parlour at the basement of the hotel, which offers a good foot massage. On the pavement level just next to the hotel is a nice local restaurant. Close by we enjoyed the Ban mi sandwich. Recommend for a budget stay and good location.
