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 quiet, the fact that it is away from noisy pack back areas is the most appealing with so many visitors but if you want to walk to the back pack 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 hospital 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 !

  • Overall, this was a superb find. All communications prior to arrival went smoothly. I arrived from an early arrival flight - 9 am ish, and they were able to let me have access to the room. Basically, this is a family guesthouse with 4 rooms the rent. They told me they renovated it 3 years ago, adding floors and the elevator. I rented a motorbike and they let me park it inside at night with theirs. The family is busy, so it is not a real "in family, hang out with them" type of experience. I did take the offer to eat with them one of the 7 nights I was there. Very nice home food, cooked by all of them. Probably guests could participate. Some quirks with internet & no soap. Huge room, large comfortable bed, quiet, central, good AC. View of facing homes located on small alleyway. I would certainly go back and would invite them to my home considering how nicely they keep their home.

    Hi Kris,

    Thank you for nice and honest review, i really appreciate all advices you gave us.

    I just want to say everything has their reasons, we've had renting-experienes, seen a lots different situations so we have our own way to manage our house.

    We are not rich family so we have to work most of time, i'm sorry but it will be impossiple if tenant want to see us daily.

    Before, we let all the necessities in the bathroom but most of the tenants didn't use them and those necessities could make the bathroom look dirty... so we store them all. But the tenants can ask, i will give those things.

    Unfortunately, when you stayed here the wifi was slow and had problem, that's because the Vietnamese light cable under the sea has been upgrading, it's not our fault. I'm sure the wifi in my house is very strong, just not as strong as some hotels (wifi in hotels is a kind of special machine, that's why it's stronger, that machine is unneccessary and expensive for us).

    We are family room for rent, we manage everything as a family, can't be professional as hotel, that's why we had low price for the place in a beautiful location.

    Hope these explanation will help you understand more about us.
    Anyway, we will do our best to improve our service better and better. When i have chance, i will love to visit you and your family :).

    Thanks again and all the best for you,
    Vania

  • Vania she is a nice, and I would even say, special girl with strong commitment to her small house business as in the future of her life. I did enjoy her help and the invitation of the all family during the new year day. The location it is perfect and very quite. Elevator is there to get you to the rooms which are very spacious and have all what is needed for a confortable stay, from fridge, tv, ceramic cooker, air con, laundry service and wifi connection. So thank you Vania

  • Vania was great! The room was spotless! Her family was lovely! They invited me to have dinner with them and were really helpful when it came to questions I had about Saigon and Vietnamese food! They were a beautiful taste of real life in Saigon and I am grateful for the experience. The room was comfortable and in a great location!

  • A very spacious room. Comfortable bed and cool air conditioning. Clean bathroom. There was an elevator in the place to get to my room. Locked front gate.
    Located just a few minutes walk from main backpackers area. So it isn't noisy or busy. Close to Ben Thanh Market.
    Host family was great. Answering my questions and allowing me to add extra nights to my stay. Vania is wonderful and friendly. I went out with here to see the night scene in a different district.
    Highly recommended for the wonderful location, great hosts, and budget price.

About
Hi, I'm Vân, but i choose an English name for myself is Vania in case some people can't speak my name. Vania's sense is "Bring good new", that means i want to bring good new to everyone i know and of course 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. Besides, i love Music, Movie, Book, Photography, Travelling and Cooking too. 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. I even want to be a Vietnamese tutor, so if you want to know more about Vietnamese, i'm glad to teach you for free. Right now i've just travelled around Vietnam, but for sure in the near future, i will discover another countries. And when i start travelling i 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 hang out with guests (of course with who really like 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 i will help you go around and know more about my city. ...... Hm i think i write too much about myself, it's time for me to stop. Thank you for reading me !
