In the context of business travel, this was a disappointing experience compared to the last apartment I stayed in.
I had tried to rebook the previous property, but was advised it was booked and was instead recommended to try this one on the basis it was similar. It was not at all similar.
Very difficult to find - you MUST call ahead as the address provided is not where the place actually is.
Amenities: the small things you expect from serviced apartment when travelling for business were not there.. complimentary bathroom supplies; an iron and board (were provided on request), microwave, clean crockery and cutlery ( I would not eat using those provided; no dishwasher; TV had to be taken away and fixed - and even then reception was pretty poor; bed was average - not hotel standard; fittings were very worn out; Lock box didn't seem to work; no comfortable rest area; working from there would be uncomfortable; WIFI was good, but dropped out for a full day (was reset quickly when I called security)
attentive manager and security personnel - very friendly and assisted with any enquiry where they could; Location is close to key areas in D1.
- I would say this is below average, but okay for a short stay.
Might be more suited to a couple on holiday looking for a budget option
Everything was fine, there's even a shared kitchen and washing machine upstairs. Just needed to go out and buy some essentials like soap and shampoo. The gate to get in isn't the best--I broke my key in the lock, but it didn't cause a major problem.
Neighborhood is very quiet, which makes it great for sleeping, but not if you want some nightlife. The main backpacker/tourist area is about 40-60 minute walk--only VND 20-30 for a motorbike ride.
Good stay, everything was up to expectation and location was fantastic however the gym needs some massive improvement (main reason I stayed here).

Diem is super friendly and very accommodating - everything went smoothly from arrival to departure. The apartment itself is very clean and somewhat tucked away from the main street noise. The location is unbeatable - in the heart of Q1 with many dining and nightlife options literally at your doorstep. Overall everything exceeded my expectations.
Apartment was beautiful and in perfect condition, location really good. Nice little street coffee right in front of the house when you get up in the morning. Diem showed us an amazing (!!) Pho place 10min walk away, close to the river. The atmosphere is so different to staying in backpack Bui Vien.
Diem is new to Airbnb and didn't know the procedures which made the whole reservation and payment process a real pain. Airbnb support was poor. It worked out for us in the end though and I guess next time it should work out better.
The reservation was canceled 16 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
