    It’s not a luxury 5 star hotel or a resort you choose for some family holiday purposes, but it’s definitely a very good deal for a person who is looking for an affordable place to stay in District 5. It’s worth to mention that the hotel is located in 5-7min walking distance from the Cho Ray hospital. As everywhere in HCM there are plenty of street food spots directly near to the hotel. In 5min and 10-12min walking distance there are 2 shopping malls with cheap and clean food courts. Small convenient store, pharmacy, banks, currency exchange as also mobile stores (to buy a SIM card) are all in 2-10min walking distance. In the room there was an AC unit as also a small fridge. In order to have the room cleaned or to get some fresh towels - a room key should be left on the reception with a clear instruction what is wanted as also the timing when should it be done.

    There are not many western tourists staying in this hotel, so the stuff is used to worked mainly with the guests from Asia, what sometimes makes some cultural differences more prominent. However communication was never a problem and all stuff members were very friendly and helpful.

    Room was spacious, facilities clean, friendly and helpful staff, close to all amenities, great service, no extra hidden charges like you get from some higher rating hotels.

    The bed was a bit too firm for my liking. It took me several days to adapt to the traffic noises, especially the siren from the ambulances (but that’s what you get from staying near numerous hospitals).

    Very good location with lots of local and other food. Less than 5 mins walk to Mc Donald and others good eatery.

    No lift, climbing up stairs is very tired No kettle for boiling water No bottled water supply, you have to purchase from them

    Good A/C (it was cooling the room well despite the fan being on low)

    The room smelled of cigarettes, it was very noisy at night time, not the friendliest staff
