  • Bach was a great host and we had an excellent stay.

    The apartment has a pleasant view of the river and botanic gardens, and walking around the gardens and zoo make for a pleasant break from the intensity of the city.

    Bach was friendly and responsive. When we couldn't figure out how to get the sound on the TV working, he even offered to come over to show us. (We figured it out before he arrived.)

  • We had a wonderful stay. The newly-renovated one-bed apartment is housed in an old block at the edge of the Botanic Gardens and zoo, so you wake up to the sight of greenery and elephants. The apartment is fully furnished, including new toiletries, because Bach, being the considerate host, "wanted us to concentrate on having fun and exploring HCMC." And we did - just five minutes from the city, this little suburb is also teeming with local culture (Vietnamese street food, little pho places and restaurants, morning markets...). This area sits on just the right balance of old and new HCMC.
