Great location, nice apartment with history in an older style building. Very clean and with a good balcony looking over the busy street below. Good communications from hosts and assistance via email with a quick reply, whenever I needed advice. So much better than staying in a hotel! Thanks :)
We had a very warm reception after a long flight. The room was very comfortable and a great location in central HCMC. A great place to choose for long or short stays
Great location for exploring Ho Chi Minh city and to enjoy good food and the nearby markets. As we were unfamiliar with travel in Vietnam, Vu who managers the accommodation was invaluable as a support and resource. Within a short time of booking Vu sent an introductory email and offered any support and assistance to us. He was kind efficient and communicative, assisting us with visa's , transfers and our train tickets which had not being delivered
[ the day before we were booked to leave]. Nothing was a problem and he was also able to recommend good resturants, coffee and places to visit. The apartment was comfortable, clean and convenient. It is an old building which has seen better days but for us that was part of the appeal... to experience something authentic and different. We were in transit to Hoi An so our stay was brief but we are returning again as we leave Vietnam for a further short stay. We really felt we were in the hub of a city so unlike home
Great place to stay In Ho Chi Minh City - the apartment is a great match for those seeking out the real nostalgia of this place... very convenient and efficient communication and exchange!
Great location! about 5 minutes walk to Ben Thanh market. Nice restaurant at surrounding. Clean room. Very classic room.
We were picked up by Vu (prop. mgr of the apt) at the airport (USD$25) and were very glad to have a friendly face greet us. This is recommended also to avoid any unpleasant experiences with the taxi drivers at the airport. The reviews about the dark and smelly staircase on the way up is true but we think it only adds to the charm of the lovely apt, which was clean, charming and welcoming. It is the least of your worries. The location is fantastic. You can walk to all the tourist attractions/museums. We spent a lot of time walking and eating all the street food - go where the locals crowd, don't hesitate. Just point and order. If the locals can't tell you how much, they will show you the amount in VND currency. We did get overcharged at certain places - for fruits and at drinks stalls. Just be wary where no prices are specified. We stayed 5 nights here and on the 3rd night we felt that the bed seemed aged, we informed Vu of this and the following day we had our bed replaced at night. We truly appreciate this gesture of making sure that we were as comfortable as can be. The cons I would say would be the sounds of the traffic, but it is HCMC, this is inevitable. It quiets down at about 10 - 11 pm and starts at about 5am. Early to bed early to rise! All in all, we highly recommend staying here.
Tram and Vu were great hosts! My boyfriend and I had a lovely time staying at the apartment. Vu was always there when we needed something. The location was fantastic and we walked everywhere throughout our stay. Tram and Vu listen to feedback and have added an extra sliding glass door to reduce the sound coming from the road next to the apartment. Toilet is clean and apartment is well kept! My only qualm is that the staircase and stairway is slightly old. But if isn't much to worry about as the hosts and location of the apartment more than make up for it :)
