Lovely hotel and service with smile”

Lively City Hotel in Great Location”

Helpful staff, fast wifi, fantastic location

The guesthouse is smack in the middle of the backpacker strip, meaning that bars, Vietnamese and international restaurants, and all kinds of amenities are in easy reach; however, you can reach more local restaurants and shops and escape the crowds of tourists by walking just a few blocks, so the location is the best of both worlds. Attractions like the central market and art museum are also in easy walking distance. The guesthouse itself has comfortable, if somewhat cramped, rooms; good cable and wifi; and friendly staff who can help with everything from changing money to booking trips. There's also a well-equipped shop and a small sidewalk bar/restaurant area out front, with shots of local liquors from only 50 cents US. It's a great place to meet fellow travelers, but that also means the noise level can be high at night (though the street quiets down after midnight). Plenty of good street food options in this area, too.

small yet cosy

located somewhat in the heart of district 1, it was accessible to many attractions even by foot. the owner was pleasant despite the limited english she could speak. i opted for a high floor room which is quiet in the evening. being a guesthouse, room is not too big but it is great enough for solo travellers.

Right in the main backpackers street

this hotel is great, the rooms are small, but they are cean and have everything you need. there is a shop that sells everything downstairs and at very good prices. the staff are very friendly and accommodating. only draw-back, its a bit noisy as it's on the main street with lots of bars etc.

quiet, fast wifi, center of backpacker nightlife

I enjoyed my stay, but i am writing this honestly for you. while this room was tiny and not the cleanest place, nothing fancy about it, but it is very cheap, and perfect for a solo traveller just needing a good bed in between seeing saigon and enjoying the nightlife. bonus is that this hotel also makes the strongest and cheapest drinks at night. amazingly i heard nothing of the nightlife despite being literally in the center of it all. for about $13 its a pretty cool choice. if you want better, spend ten more dollars somewhere, but dont go to madam cuc 64 that place is disgusting. this place is what it is and i liked it

the hotel's location is quite ok. close to restaurants and tour agencies. lots of motorcycle rentals nearby if you want one. the room is small but clean. you can buy your personal necessities downstairs. a little bit noisy in the late afternoon but if you stay on the upper floors, the noise can be tolerated. the hotel has no elevator though, and the stairs are quite steep and narrow. its a little bit hard if you are on the 3rd floor and up. the proprietor can understand english well but is not very friendly. overall, it is worth the money you pay

Satisfactory Under the Circumstances Except the Noise”

Staff service is very good. Room is neat and clean, and needed simple amenities, such as towels, slippers, electrical outlets, hangers, toilet paper, etc. are provided, however I did not see soap, shampoo and toothpaste. Air-conditioning cools well and water supply is strong. On the negative side, the noise from the drinking crowd at the ground floor of the hotel is terrible. The noise starts from around 8:00 in the evening and will not stop until 2:00 in the morning. At the time I was there a power failure happened and my room without windows became claustrophobic and hot as oven. The hotel management gave me a portable lamp but the heat forced me to leave the room and take refuge in nearby cafe that was not affected by the electrical brownout for at least two hours.
