Interaction with Guests
Each day we will check to ensure you are comfortable and all your needs are met. We turn the linen, provide fresh towels, and a light breakfast. If you need connections to the airport, sights, or around town we also arrange for pick-up right at our door.
The main street in front of our location provides access to all your needs- shopping, food, pharmacy, ATMs, and 24/hr convenience stores.
One of the benefits or our location is that we are located along a nice quaint street, away from the noise and bustle of the downtown tourist area. Because we are off the main thoroughfare, it is much cleaner and quieter though you are only a few blocks away from all the markets, shopping, and popular sights.
Vo Van Tan has many small restaurants and local stands serving all types of traditional Vietnamese food. Along Dien Bien Phu and Nguyen Thi Minh Khai are cafes, bakeries, ice-cream shops, and more.
A short 10 minute walk Nguyen Thi Nghia will bring you to the parks, Ben Thank Market, the backpacker district, and many more sights.
Numerous side streets provide fresh fruit stalls, sandwich vendors, and two streets are known for special dishes, "Snails and shellfish" (grilled, hot pot, soups, porridge, and more) and "Hu Tieu Nam Vang" (a wet or dry rice noodle soup with origins in Cambodia).
Located a few blocks from the central rail station, close to the bus depot, and backpacker district- exploring and seeing Saigon is very easy from our central location. If you need taxi or "xe om", you can easily hail one right outside our bed and breakfast.
Everything you need can be found within a short walk!
I felt really welcome here. The staff are very nice and really want to take care of the customers. I had a great experience here and would certainly return.
This is a Vietnamese-style guest house, where the family lives on one floor and they rent out the other rooms. The people who run the guesthouse are very welcoming and helpful, although with limited English. The house is older style, with ornate window and balcony details, heavy curtains, a collection of porcelain figurines in the dining room, a koi pond on the ground floor, and lots of plants on the balcony. This place is a good choice if you want to experience Saigon outside of the tourist area, but still close to everything you need.
-The family and staff are very friendly and helpful and will do everything to make you feel welcomed and comfortable
- The room is spacious and has lots of natural light
- The house is in a lively local area with lots of cute boutiques, coffee shops, restaurants and street markets; and a quick taxi / motorbike ride away from the centre (or 15 min walk)
- A small breakfast is included in the price (delicious Vietnamese coffee, tea, baguette with cheese and jam)
- The staff don't speak very much English, which resulted in a couple of miscommunications (which were solved eventually)
- The mattress is Vietnamese-style and some Westerners might find it hard
- There are not enough power outlets in the room - bring an extension cord with you so you can charge all your electronics
I arrived past midnight and it’s not hard to find the place. Mike is still up to welcome and meet me. It was good the room is available before my checkin time, Mike has been very generous to let me checked in early.
Mike’s place is a very good decision. I booked a room in the 2nd floor and the room is spacious, clean & well-maintained. I had good rest after each day of tiring tour of the city. I love everything in my room, it is complete as shown in the picture – comfortable bed, it has a fridge, tv, sofa, dresser, cabinet, balcony and special mention to the bath tub! The bathroom is also spacious and clean, toiletries are provided. Wifi connection is fast! Mike showed me the top floor of the hotel and it’s very nice there! You can just sit there and relax. Breakfast is free, simple but enough to start a long day. I love the pineapple! The hotel is safe with gates. They have big reception area, too! Oh, I love the stairs. Everything have a personal touch and so I felt at ease and at home. There is also this one guy who always assists me, he don’t speak English but he always have smile on his face. Every time I will come home to the hotel at night, he is always there outside waiting for me, he walks with me to the hotel and it seems like he is making sure that I’ll get to the hotel safely, just like my father back home
Everything I needed is within reach – restaurant, fast food, local Vietnamese food, a good drink, clothes, souvenirs, etc. I never had a problem with transportation, there’s a lot of taxi to grab just a few steps outside the hotel! You can opt also for a motorcycle taxi. The location is great - quiet and peaceful and yet, not very far from some tourist area in District 1. You can just walk around the area, or have a short ride on a motorcycle, which I really love. One time, Mike made his way to bring me to the bus station riding in a motorcycle, it was fun!
Mike is very nice and accommodating. Easy to deal with. Everything has been smooth, from the time that I’m still inquiring about the room until the time I left for my late night flight. He is very prompt in responding to any of my inquiries. He assisted me very well. He speaks English language and so I am very comfortable conversing with him and I’m glad that we had a nice chat just before I left. I will definitely stay again in this place the next time I’ll go to Vietnam. I am also confident to refer Mike’s place to my friends who will want to visit Vietnam. I have no regrets booking this room/place, the whole experience exceeded my expectation! Everything has been great! Thank you very much!
If you want to stay at a quieter place in a quieter neighborhood look no further. Ben thanh and other major touristy areas are a little farther from here but certainly walkable. Quan was kind enough to receive me at the airport. Quan's sister was always smiling and she made me scrumptious breakfast in the morning. Quan was very prompt in responding to all my inquiries.
A few things that I hope they can improve:
1) wifi connection was slow on the 4th floor. I have expressed this to Quan and he was looking into the issue
2) toiletries - you have to bring your own. It will be great some basic things are provided like in other airbnb places
3) perhaps a map with major point of interest would be helpful as well
Overall this is a great place to stay
Avete presente quando uno dice "tutto bene"?
Si intende tutto fila liscio, facile, senza pensieri.
Accolti come se uno fosse stato sempre lì. Attenti, puliti, premurosi senza essere affatto opprimenti.
Tutto bene, appunto.
The room was not the same as the one we saw listed: it was even better! HUGE bed, very comfortable and cool digs. It should be noted that this is indeee more of a hotel than a private room, but that was all fine. The staff was exceeeingly helpful and wonderful, especially as I had to leave early for a family emergency -- they were comforting and delightful. And there are so many interesting street sights so close by! highly recommended.
The room was as described in the photos. Lots of room, my wife and I have been travelling for a long while and enjoy a larger room.
There is a school next door but with the window closed there was very little noise.
Breakfast in our room at the time we wanted was a nice option.
Taxi's from the airport or downtown had no trouble finding the place and were not expensive.
There are lots of resturants in the area, mainly Vietamese
The hosts were very nice and were always present when we arrived or left.
