thanh guesthouse 1 at HCM”

the owner

i've booked this thanh guesthouse hotel for 1 night only as my travel mate decided to stay for only 2 days at Ho Chi Minh City. however, later on, we've decided to stay for one night more so we've surveyed another hotels or guesthouses around the backpackers area to compare the prices. since the price for thanh guesthouse for one more night is the cheapest, so we've decided to stay there. the room is nice and comfortable and the owner is friendly (eventhough she barely speaks english). but, the toilet is a bit too small and the location is pretty difficult to find.

There are three Thanh Guesthouses side by side. The Thanh Guesthouse, Thanh Guesthouse 1 and Thanh Guesthouse 2. They all look the same and i think its from the same owner. We booked Number 1 and stayed in Number 2. But this doesn't matter. The rooms are clean with fan and A/C. Because its located in the middle of Bui Vien its quite noisy the hole day and night. Furthermore the familiy is living in this Guesthouse. The young children are yelling and screaming the hole day. Altogether its a good Guesthouse for those who want to enjoy the nightlife of Saigon.

Sweet owner, nice quiet place”

Staff, location, clean

We enjoyed our stay here. It's a little difficult to find because it's in one of the million alleyways of District 1, but it's also quiet because of that. Nice room...no windows, but clean and had private bathroom. TV with lots of English channels and good AC, hot water, and towels. Owner is really nice and friendly. There was a padlock on the door when we tried to go out for water late at night, but I think that's what the phone downstairs is for and there are always people on the corner if you come on late to let you in. Would stay here again.

COMPLETE and COMFORTABLE IN THE CHEAPEST WAY!”

Price, Room facilities, Location

It was a nice experience. I am a backpacker and I value my money a lot, so for me, everything that the room offered to me is too much. I was surprised that the room also has a refrigerator aside from actv. I also like that there's like a small veranda that will allow you to see what's happening outside. I just stayed on the 2nd floor, so I really had a good wifi connection. I really enjoyed my stay there. The location is also near the road where you can find lots of stores for your supply needs. For improvement, it would be better that the MANAGER (the small guy with short arms) should be more approachable and pleasant. He should SMILE more often to the customers. Don't get me wrong, he was okay, but you don't feel that he's happy that you chose Thanh guesthouse. I don't know, maybe because I am also an Asian that's why he's like that, and let's face it, their treatment to Caucasians is better. Good thing he can communicate in English. And also, if they are asking their customers to practice their beliefs, they should have informed the customers before they start lodging, not on the last day. Over-all, I will still choose Thanh.

Pleasant Stay”

Being asked to take off our shoes at the entrance was unexpected but does help the cleanliness. Our room was very clean, with clean bedding. We had the tiniest piece of balcony where we hung our washing with our pegless clothes line. Being in the city centre it was very quiet. Only guest noise as they came and went. Fans and air conditioner. Room 2. Helpful, organised, staff with good English. Good location, in alley, close to food, busses, park, etc. Negatives - Glass panels in door let in light from the stairwell.

The hostel was a bit hard to find but a nice lady helped us find it. We came at 02:00 at night and had to ring the bell for the hostel as the door closes around 22:30. We were let in by a nice lady, who didn't spoke a word of English, but showed us our room. ( room 2) It was nice and bigger than expected and with 2 big beds and a very small balcony + good aircon and fan . Staff didn't speak English but was nice and we got by with using simple words and signs - if there was a question the nice lady would call someone who spoke English. Location is great! If you come back later than 22:20 or around that time on weekdays the main door is locked, so you have to ring a bell for the lady to open. All in all a good experience and good value for the money.

Great location and very comfortable

this place is down an alley of bui vien which is one of the main streets in the backpacker section of town. because it's set back from the main road, you don't need to worry about noise at night even though the place is centrally located. at the end of the alley, you can get the best fruit shakes for less than a dollar and amazing, large vietnamese coffees for 50cents. this hotel is great!

Great location, friendly staff

We arrived very early at the day of our check in, but after a few arrangements we could check in to our room at 7am in the morning! Although we booked a double room, we got a room with 2 double beds and so a lot of extra space. The location of the guesthouse is in the middle of the backpackers area, but in an alley so you won't be bothered by the noise. The bed had the best mattress and pillows we encountered on our trip in 3 weeks!
