The Alcove Library Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We had a great stay! Beautifully decorated, good food in their restaurant, amazing beds and the water in the shower was warm and with a good pressure (you begin to appreciate this when staying in different hotels around Asia). The staff was really friendly and helpful. We would recommend this any day.

I booked a room that with a king-size bed and a sofa bed for my travel partner and I. When we arrived, we were notified that since they were sold out, they "upgraded" our room to a suite. I asked if the new room had a sofa bed and was informed 'yes.' When we arrived to the room, there was a sofa that could not be converted into a bed. Calling reception was of no help and they didn't have any extra roll-away-beds either. Also, there was limited hot water. You needed to turn on the hot water switch outside of the bathroom to get hot water. However, the amount of hot water is good for one person, 5-minute shower. By the time the second person took a shower, the hot water lasted for 30 seconds. Although the location is conveniently located near the airport, the hotel is in a small street that as challenging to get in when there were more than one cars. We arrived when two other taxis were there and had a hard time getting out and maneuvering our small luggages. Concierge was not available to help. The wifi was very slow when we were there on the second floor.

Very nice hotel with cozy environment and welcoming staff. Was impressed by the breakfast served~ and other meals and drinks are all good as well The staff are very friendly and helpful, thank you!! very nice experience! Will definitely recommend to friends and family.

We only stayed one night at the Alcove Hotel and its proximity to the airport, down a side street away from the busy main road was a huge plus. The room was spacious as was the bathroom, the staff friendly and the bed comfortable. Great breakfast and WIFI too. Recommended as good value.

it was a perfect stay. well decorated hotel, had a great breakfast and the most important was all staff was very nice and helpful. although the location is not in the city central but you can easily take uber to go to the central and there sre so many cute cafes around the hotel. love!

Best Hotel Around the world.. Great Atmosphere.. Great Service... Great Food and Must stay when u check in Vietnam.. love the ambience and the people who work here , they are too polite , love the architecure its so good feel like staying at home

I cannot fault this Hotel at all and is exceptional value and service. The Breakfast is also very good...however! A few points to note: We found the location not so great for main attractions and had to rely on taxis as nothing was walkable, unless you wanted to eat in the Hotel restaurant every night which defeats the object for us. Taxis - do not use any others firms others than Vinasun and the Green cabs. We were ripped off twice by Taxis and it left us feeling really vulnerable given our location. The staff went out of their way to help us so it a fault of the Hotel. For us HCM city was a stopover for a few days and wouldn't be in a rush to return to it, preferred Hanoi which has more charm.

Lovely hotel close to the airport. Clean & comfortable with beautiful decor. I'm a sucker for floor to ceiling book shelves & the foyer boasts a beauty. The pattern tile flooring is gorgeous. I loved the book references around the place & old photographs scattered over the walls. Would definitely stay again.

I have always wanted to sleep in a library. And this is the closest I have come. You can picture me a well traveled tourist/ business person standing outside taking photos. It is so welcoming. Attentive staff on the main desk. I didn't get to eat dinner as I was a late check in. Breakfast was.. yum! Room was very clean and room attendants helped on entry and exit with luggage Thank you four a wonderful stay

The hotel is a 15min drive from the center an d close to the airport. The rooms are nice and clean. The hotel serves breakfast (included in the price) as well as lunch and dinner. Staff is ok although some of them could be a little bit more friendly.
