International Plaza is located at the heart of Pham Ngu Lao St, within walking distance to Ho Chi Minh city centre and easy reach to most of Ho Chi Minh city landmarks and shopping (website hidden)ạm Ngu Lao street is located in District 1 of Ho Chi Minh City, formerly Saigon, Vietnam. It was named after Pham Ngu Lao, the national hero. The intersection of Pham Ngu Lao and De Tham streets are referred to as the backpacker district of Saigon. This area is frequented by Ho Chi Minh city locals and tourist who flock to the area markets (both open air and indoors) to buy cheap clothes (some of which are counterfeit), DVDs, souvenirs, and war memorabilia. The many bars and cafes in this district are conveniently located near Saigon's city centre. In the Vietnamese language, this area is called "khu Tay ba lo" (Backpacker's area).

I'm in Canada right now but I have my staff and my parents at home to host you during your stay. If you have any problem, email me, I check email every minute.
People live around you in other apartments are mostly expats and very professional working people. However, you won't see them often as they're often not at home until late or maybe on business trip.
There are many good foods and nice bars around the area; from cheap, average to very classy one. You can find many kind of foods: Vietnamese, Thai, Indian, Italian, vegetarian, etc within walking distance. If you want to try all the good food around the area, spend at least 1 week and eat more than 3 meals per day. Prepare to gain weight!!
Take bus No 35, it is a tourist bus, will take you around famous landmark in District 1 for around 30 cent per round.
You can try bus no 35 which is a public transport specialized for tourist. You can catch bus 35 at the Central bus station right opposite the International Plaza building (few steps away). The cost is around $0.30 (30 cent) for each ride, the bus route will take you around District 1 and city most famous landmark.
The bus is brand new one, equipped with air con so pretty comfortable. Prepare some small amount money before boarding this bus as I don't think the driver can have lots of money to change your big note.
Also pay attention to pickpocket, don't be a victim. If not necessary, leave your passport and important stuff at home.
Very nice apartment and great communication from Van!
Great place to stay! The location is close to transportation, parks, and great food. There are tour group stores right down the street so you can set up tours with them super easy. The apartment was spacious, clean and we felt safe during our time them. Plus we had daily cleaning service!
The only thing that wasn't the best was you could hear all the honking outside from the traffic and a bus depot was outside as well. Not as bad with the A/C Running.
We will come back and stay there for sure
Excellent séjour a HCMC.
L'appartement est parfait : grand, propre, bien situé ! A notre surprise, il y a même une personne qui vient faire le ménage tous les jours !
Merci encore a notre hôte.
Van's apartment is very nice and clean. The bed was very comfortable, unit has washer/dryer, pool area and restaurant. I would recommend Van's apartment to anyone staying in Saigon.
Great condo in a good location if you want to hang out with the people of Ho Chi Minh City. Van's staff took great care of me, check ins were no problem, and Van and I communicated thru email throughout my stay. Definitely recommend Van!
The location of the apartment was good as it was on the main road and directly behind was the road with all the cafes and a nice vibe in the evenings. The apartment was well furnished and well looked after. Unfortunately the second bedroom didn't have any linen on our 1st night their but we got some the next day when the house keeper came to clean. We struggled a lot to get internet access as the codes on the email were not correct and van could not be reached during our stay. However we did finally manage to sort it out, by calling the lady who is in charge of the complete apartment block but only after day2 when we went to the 7th floor and picked up a business card for the management.
All in all, it was an enjoyable stay and it was the exact apartment we booked after viewing the pics. Only real issue we had was the internet connectivity which became frustrating as Van was out of town and could not be reached but after we sorted this out, everything was great!
had people in at least once every day to view the property and twice they just walked in without any notice or even knocking on the door. I also told the cleaners nearly everyday who came at 8-9am that we had a baby and to come back between 1-3pm, they never did and 2 days didn't even clean at all
Stayed for a few days. It's a quite large 2 bedroom apartment. Very nice and clean. Everything was professional with the host. No problems.
