Other Things to Note
* SAIGON - YOU WILL NEVER GET BORED:
I have been grown up and living here for more than 25 years, I‘ve been in a few countries but Saigon is always the place I want to be most, a place to return, a place to live and enjoy a real interesting life. Saigon never stops surprising me when I thought I know my city so well but oops there is always something new await for me everyday. I have just found out a great “Bún Thịt Nướng” (grill pork noodle) street food hidden right behind of a very famous Coffee shop on Dong Khoi Street, it has been always there for 10 years and I have just known it. Or a place on the top of a very big and nice shopping mall in central dist 1 but serve a set lunch only 50,000 VND (2 dollars) for a full set of Vietnamese lunch meal.
So believe me, you will love Saigon once you have sometime to spend here. People are nice and friendly, streets full of motorbikes and noises but full of energy and joy. I live at my house for all of my life, we have just been rebuilt the house for 5 years, so the house is new but the people and the location is still the same. There is so much things happen in the area that you will find it amazing to discover everyday and of course if you stay here, I would like to show you some of my favorite places of Saigon. A 10 years old nice smoothies and juice stand, a great and authentic Pho restaurant has just opened by a northern guy, a nice rooftop bar just next to Ben Thanh market, a day and night market with so much interesting things to buy for your souvenirs, a pizza restaurant owned by a Japanese which is so tasty and I guarantee you will be fall in love to their pizzas once you try them, etc.
I feel very lucky to be born, grow up and live at my current house now, not only because it has amazing location, but also it's like a connection between me and this city. It's located in an alley which is so center and quite, the fact that it is away from noisy pack back area is the most appealing with so many visitors but if you want to walk to the pack back street, it takes you only 5 minutes to walk there, you will see a very different living style there. From my house, you can easily to discover many different areas of Saigon, you can take motorbike, taxi or bus to everywhere and if you don't know your plan yet, I would like to give you some suggestion from a perspective of a Vietnamese who lived and grown up here. There are so many places which are not listed in your guide book but only a local can show you.
Last but not least, myself and my family are very friendly and hospitable people. We have welcomed so many guests overseas and I am sure that you will find a very nice, comfy and warm stay at my place !
- Be quiet after 11pm
- No smoking inside the house
- No prostitution
- If you have friend visit, please inform me or my mom, they need to leave after 11pm. If they stay over, we will need to charge extra 10 USD / person / night and we will keep the ID card or passport.
My daughter and I were enjoy staying in Van's COMFY ROOM 1. The room was just enough for us to rest our body after going around every day.
The access to this place was easy, although it was a bit difficult to find it when we first arrived at Ben Thanh market.
I think the only problem was language so misunderstanding happened sometime.
Thanks for hosting us, Van :)
Specious and clean room to stay. The landlord family is nice and helpful. They have a cute cat to guard the house though, just kidding! I would stay here next time when i am here
Vania and her parents were great. The room was comfy (just like in the title) and had a great central location right near the market. They even gave me some vietnamese coffee to take home! Check in/check out was easy. The place can be a little hard to find when first going there and the gate is locked which can be interesting when your phone's not working in Vietnam, but all in all it was a great place and I would definitely book it again!
A Perfect Home Away Home. I would definitely return when i am back to HCMC. A perfect AIRBNB experience.
Vania was very accommodating, even when my flight was changed and I didn't arrive until 1 am.
The room was clean and delivered as advertised. I only stayed for one night and was with a friend for the entire day, but Vania offered to take me out for street food.
I would definitely stay again.
Vania and his family are super nice persons. Fabulous location next to Ben Thanh Market, a central spot where all the tours in Ho Chi Minh begin. The room was spacious, clean, even fragrant with cinnamon (website hidden) great and wi-fi fast enough to video call and streming. Private bathroom with shower inside the room. Good value for quality. They even gave me a gift when I check out: a good vietnamise coffé I'm tasting in Rome right now. Recommended!
Jag bodde här i 36 dagar, och trivdes väldigt bra alla dagar. Vania och hennes familj var väldigt trevliga och hjälpsamma, och jag kände mig trygg. Mitt rum var fräscht och rent, tillräckligt stort för två personer.
Det enda tråkiga var att grannarna byggde om och det ekade i hela huset. Jag blev väckt 7:30 varje morgon vilket ofta inte var uppskattat. Detta är självklart inte Vanias fel och det finns inget de kan göra åt saken.
Vania var hjälpsam redan från första dagen och när jag kände att jag ställde till problem (bröt nyckeln, blev rånad) så var Vania där för mig så jag lugnade ner mig.
Jag kommer att komma tillbaka, och då hoppas jag på att grannarna är klara med sin renovering.

About the Host, Vania (Vân)
I'm Vân but can call me Vania in case some people can't speak my original name. Vania's sense is "Bring good new", that means i want to bring good new to everyone i know and i also love to receive good new from others.
I love Art the most, that's why now i'm an designer to create many wonderful things for life, people and myself.
Furthermore, i have passion for Music, Movie, Book, Photography, Travelling and Cooking.
I'm also a member of a volunteer tourguide club named Saigonhotpot in Ho Chi Minh City, if you want to travel Saigon with a free tourguide, you can ask me.
Moreover, i'm Vietnamese tutor, so if you want to know more about Vietnamese, i'm glad to teach my language.
Now i've just travelled around Vietnam, but for sure in the near future, i will discover another countries. When i start travelling, hope i will meet nice host through Airbnb, i'm not grumpy person so don't worry, just please host me well if i meet you (someone i haven't known yet).
Last but not least, i'm a nice host, you can check it true or not when you rent my house. I love to give a "friend" tour to my guests (if guests love that), but it depends on my time, sometimes i'm very very busy and you will not see my face. For sure if i have time, will help you go around and know more about my city.
Hm think i write too much about myself, it's time for me to stop.
Thank you for reading me !
