We stayed at the Little Saigon Boutique Hotel for two nights. Our room was on the top floor and had a magnificent view! The room facilities itself were a bit worn down and the room and furniture looked in disrepair. Do not be discouraged by its location at the end of an alley-it was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of busy Saigon. They were unable to help us get a taxi back to the airport for some reason. Perhaps because there is no entrance that meets the street? We easily hailed a taxi ourselves around the corner.
We stayed at the Little Saigon Boutique Hotel in the first week of July. We took the standard room but were initially disappointed to see there were no windows in this room. We still decided to go with the same room, we figured that we will not be spending a lot of time in the room. By and by we realised that it was a decent place to crash for the nights (we spent all the waking hours exploring Ho Chi Minh city). The staff was always helpful with really nice recommendations for restaurants (the 4th floor restaurant across the little quadrangle was superb!!). We took a tour from the hotel to Cu Chi tunnels and that was very well managed as well. All in all we needed some time to warm upto it but all good in the end.
The hotel is located off Le Loi and due to building works is rather hard to find. Imagine you are stood outside Liberty Central hotel. Then right then right down an alley where the building works are. You will then see a sign for the hotel around 100m down the alley. You must then turn in to another alley way which will lead you to the hotel. This location is rather inconvenient as you cannot be picked up or dropped off at the hotel, however within Ho Chi Minh, it is a good location as you are only two minutes walk from the Banh market and many of the main sights. The room was very small but clean, and the room service did a very good job of tidying the room. The air conditioning was rather loud which meant we had to keep turning it on and off, and the wifi broke during the last day, however this was not the fault of the hotel. The receptionists were also very kind. Overall, good value for money in a central location. Hard to find and an average room but would recommend for the cost.
This is our second trip to Saigon. We wanted to be close to the markets and the city this time. The location of this hotel is perfectly between the two. The rooms are on the smaller side so if you are looking for somewhere luxurious where you will spend your time in your hotel room look elsewhere. If you want somewhere that has a decent bathroom, big bed to crash at night (or an afternoon nap), friendly staff with a great location this is it. I think the price is about what you would expect to pay for a hotel like this. We didn't have any breakfast so I can't comment on the food but we ate at a lot of the stalls around the area and it was all delicious. Expect to pay a little more in the Ben Tranh market than you would off the street. pro tip: Ask the girls at the desk for directions to Tao Dan park and get there before 8am (even better at this time on a weekend). It is about a 10 minute walk away and they not only have delicious breakfast (be prepared to mime and point at whatever delicious thing you want... and then get whatever else they thought you meant) but all the local men bring their songbirds to the park and hang them up so they can sing and interact. It's like a tiny oasis of nature in the middle of a massive city!
This hotel centrally located is extremely economical and great value for money. I stayed here twice in fact.. The first time for a week and the second time for just a night. Both stays were very comfortable. Kelly on the reception was exceptionally efficient, polite, warm friendly and helpful. In fact was everything a weary Traveller would pray for when checking into a new unknown city. From sending a car to pick me up at the airport to checking me in and ensuring that I was truly comfortable and relaxed she took the trauma out of what could otherwise have been a nightmare. Nick always smiling, willing to help out with bags, motorcycle transport, fixing problems in the room etc was reassuring to have at hand. In fact today as I left the hotel it was pouring and he promptly pulled on a raincoat... Went out into the rain and cheerfully got me a cab so I'd get to the airport on time. All the staff I met were wonderful and warm. Tiffany, Tommy, Louis... Etc. The house keeping Ms Lieu if I recollect right did a good job even with my laundry. As far as the rooms go.. They're comfortable, clean and all have safes, TV, REFRIGERATORS, air-conditioning etc. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone.
So centrally located in District 1 - walking distance from everything! The staff so so kind and welcoming - we loved Tommy! Rooms are nothing special but super clean and cozy. They have great recommendations of places to go and provide airport transportation at a small cost!
This is a lovely hotel: very clean, very good air con, excellent second-to-none service. The staff make this hotel as good as it is. They're always willing to help and will do everything they can to make your stay a very pleasant one and are genuinely happy to do so. And they're so organised that check in and check out were incredibly smooth. And the location, in theory is perfect. (There's major roadworks in Saigon, as the locals still refer to it, which is temporarily affecting access). It's in a little courtyard off Le Loi and Rue Pasteur, which makes for a very quiet location in one of the busiest, craziest and noisiest cities I've been to. The entrance to which is opposite the Saigon Centre shopping mall a short walk to all the major sites and museums. The day market is one block away, the opera house and night market are two blocks away. The only thing we found was that the rooms were a little small for people living out of their cases (we only had a short stay so the built in wardrobes and the like were not really utilised by us). They would also be a bit tight of a squeeze for wheelchair users. Also, it's probably not suitable for those whose disabilities mean that it is difficult for them to get up the stairs as the lift starts from the first floor reception, not the ground floor. That said, the staff were so helpful, they'd probably carry you up the stairs if needed. Breakfast wasn't included in our room rate, but the market being so near had Banh Mi and various fruits/smoothies/cereals/Asian breakfast soups that this really was no big deal at all. All in all, an very good option: excellent option for most travellers. Highly recommended
Rooms are clean, but small. We did not receive warm welcome from the receptionist even after our driver at the airport was 2 hours late picking us up. Wouldn't stay here again or recommend it to loved ones-- certainly overpriced for what you get and can use money better by staying somewhere else in the city.
It's tucked away in an alley a heartbeat away from shops, malls, Ben Thanh and all the interesting landmarks The wide-smiling Kelly, Louis and and her team ( esp the breakfast cook cajoles you to have more!) were welcoming and attentive. If a tiny room (hey, bed-comfy and clean, toilet/shower- clean) doesn't bother you, you've found the perfect spot for a song!
The hotel name definitely is accurate. We booked and received the balcony suite. Room clean and tidy, balcony massive. Staff helpful and friendly. Laundry service was excellent, all washing came back on hangers. A far cry from the service we had received in Hanoi. Breakfast is downstairs, underneath the hotel. Don't be put off by the appearance of the premises, the food tastes great, the staff cannot do enough for you. Located down an alley the hotel is easy walking distance to many attractions and the markets.
