Little Saigon Boutique Hotel

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is basic Vietnam 2-3 star, its clean and the air-con functions effectively and quietly. Breakfast is basic but adequate. The winners for the hotel are the location, close to all major attractions and the best of HCMC shopping, and the staff. Very helpful and made great recommendations for lunch and dinner. And whilst it is right in the heart of HCMC, it's down a laneway so is nice and quiet. I was concerned about noise from the subway works nearby which affect a lot of premises, but this was not an issue at all. At the rates charged, this place is a bargain and very hard to go past. I would certainly stay here again.

This hotel is a small boutique hotel that is in a fantastic location. Close to all attractions & opposite the great shopping in Saigon Square. Short walk to the markets. Rooms are clean & tidy, bathroom is functional. Breakfast is good with western choices. Being down a quiet lane helps to get a sound sleep. Beds are very comfortable. Aircon works great & staff bend over backwards to assist you. Budget priced & I would definitely stay here next time I am in HCMC. Hotel has a lift but those that are challenged with steps or stairs may need to look elsewhere as there are steps to get up to reception.

We were lucky enough to have the Grande Deluxe room on the top floor and had a big balcony with an amazing view across the city. This is a lovely little hotel in a truly amazing location. It is so central but so tucked away and quiet at the same time. Rooms are fairly basic but still very comfortable and perfectly adequate. Staff were very helpful and professional. Breakfast was good. I would probably stay there again if back in HCMC - it has everything you need.

We were upgraded to the deluxe room and had a great little balcony. The room was lovely and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were in a great walking location to everything we wanted to visit.

I stayed here on the recommendation of a Vietnamese friend who lives in Hanoi but travels to HCMC on occasion for work. It was definitely more expensive than most boutique hotels I have stayed at in other cities in Vietnam, but I am not familiar with the rates in HCMC so I don't know how the nightly rate compared to others in the same city. It was a pain to find because of the construction-related street closures, so my Uber driver and I were walking around at 1 a.m. trying to find the place. Luckily I had purchased a SIM card and we were able to call, but I think an email with a heads up that included directions in Vietnamese for drivers would have been helpful. I had some issues with water in my room the second night, but that had more to do with Vietnam being a developing country than the service at the hotel, as they worked to fix it and even lugged a huge heavy tub of water to my room which I felt bad about. Breakfast could have been better, as it was very basic compared to other boutique hotels in Vietnam. Once you can find the place, the location is great: very central and within walking distance to many key attractions. Staff was also very helpful and friendly.

Good hotel in centre of Ho Chi Min District 1. Hidden away down an alley off LeLoy, can be difficult to find , but got the hotel to provide pickup from airport, and the concierge came to rodside to take bags and guide us to hotel. Very useful. Across road from upmarket shops and near market. Good breakfast, and helpful staff. Great location

I chose this hotel because I read that many places in Saigon can be noisy. This little hotel is set back from the road and very quiet. I had a very pleasant stay. Staff are very friendly, and receptionists Louis and mi speak good English. Ricky, the bellman, doesn't speak English but his warm smile that greeted me every time was wonderful. Right now there is roadworks nearby meaning that cars cannot get right to the hotel and have to drop 1-2 minutes walk away. The hotel is down an alley. It's totally safe even if it looks a little dark!

I stayed here only two nights, but slept well and enjoyed my stay. Staff were very nice, and breakfast was pretty good too (though you do have to pay for water). Complimentary water is included with the room though. I travelled there from HCMC airport easily on bus 49 (though 109 will be just as good and cheaper). Travelled back on bus 109 just fine - stops are not much walking distance from the hotel. Hotel is also walking distance to most attractions, so it's ideal. Very recommended.

We stayed here for one night and had a nice stay. The room is small. Bed and pillows are very comfortable. Bathroom has a reasonable amount of space. Room 101 smelled of smoke upon check in so we were quickly moved to another room upon request. Check in was very smooth and the staff are lovely. Big smiles all the time. Great location also. We were able to leave our luggage in the hotel upon check out to explore for the day before moving on from HCMC.

I booked 2 rooms in this hotel for myself and a friend. We stayed 3 nights. The check in was fast and efficient and we were offered better rooms at $5 extra per night which we declined. After we got to our rooms which were OK but a little cramped we decided to go for the other rooms mainly for the balconies. We moved rooms and were happy with them. Kelly the girl at the desk was really great and very helpful and did everything to make our stay enjoyable. We asked about The Cu Chi Tunnels Tour and they could not arrange the speedboat one which we wanted so we did it online. Everytime we went out or came in if Kelly was on duty we got a great welcome and a wonderful smile. The other girl Tifanny was also great and always smiling. The lady who cooked the breakfast was also smiling and cooked great eggs to order. When we went about exploring and having a few beers we talked about how friendly everybody was in every place we visited but for us the best of them all was Kelly. We decided that when we next visited H C M we would stay at this hotel again. Kelly's kindness and genuine helpfulness was the main reason for this decision. Anyway our departure was at 2 different times and I had the early start I had a taxi prepaid and booked for 0500 hrs. to the airport. When I went outside the hotel the porter was waiting for me and tried to get me to go in another taxi which was also waiting as was the one I had booked. He made many attempts to get me in this taxi. I produced my booking docket and showed it to the other taxi but he appeared not to understand. I returned to the hotel and phoned the company that I had prepaid and they said my taxi was waiting for me. I went to the taxi that was waiting for me and now he understood as he got a call from the boss. I got to the airport in good time. I was thinking about the incident and thought mabye it was a mix up which do happen. However later that day I got a message from my friend who had arranged a Vinsun taxi to take him to the airport and the hotel doorman somehow got him into a different taxi whose driver ripped him off and he kept the taxi doors locked until my friend started phoning the police. For one incident like this to happen might be understandable but for a second one by the same doorman/porter the same day, well I leave that to your imagination. The Taxi company (Drive Vietnam) that I booked with were very helpful, They told that the girl who should have been with the driver has a minor motorbike accident and was not able to make it. The offered me a 50% refund and a free transfer next time I go to HCM. It is a pity that two similar scam incidents by the hotel porter leaves a sour note to an otherwise wonderful Ho Chi Minh experience. I must stress the bad and dishonest treatment by the ported should not reflect on any of the other staff. I would like to stay in this hotel again except that this person makes me reluctant. I have been to HCM several times and its only a one hour flight for me as I live in Cambodia
