for a very noisy street we couldnt believe how quiet the room was, an extremely comfortable bed , the hotel is only minutes away from good restaurants , markets, art gallery and minutes by taxi to an exellent zoo and gardens , we really enjoyed our stay here and wouldnt hesitate to book again
"Close to many stores, restraints, travel agents, "
Booked 2 day trips threw front desk, slightly higher cost but it was a good travel company. Front desk did not have a cork screw to lend or ice to give out, said restraunt closed. Park across the street was busy with New Years celebration, very nice displays. Lots of restraunts, bars, street venders, travel agents near by. Good experience.
The location and the staff makes it a pretty great place to stay. Rooms were small but clean. Although we did have some issues with ants. Right is the middle of restaurants and bars however the room was quiet at night. Great AC in the room. Small fridge and safe. Free water bottle daily. Booked our cu chi tunnel tour at reception and they also arranged our taxi to the airport. Good wifi. Overall a good place to rest at a fair price
Everything was great and it's nicely tucked at the backpacker's area. Hotel looks relatively new hence everything is clean and crisp. Staff can speak English and cabs were readily available across the street. Only down side was that the room was much smaller than the photos.
I was very happy with my stay in a Deluxe room. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The room had a fantastic view of the City and Bitexco building. The location was great, just a short walk to Ben Thanh, Dong Khoi etc.
I really enjoyed the room and the breakfast was great (get the noodles)! A lot of reviews complained about the noise as it is a very busy, party street, but I personally didn't have a problem since my room was on the 4th floor and on the back side of the hotel. Also, the Wi-Fi worked great as they have 3-4 for the building.
Affordable accommodation, interesting shops, and a buzzing nightlife make Pham Ngu Lao the destination of choice for backpackers. Pham Ngu Lao is also renowned for its street food. Gorge on banh mi--Vietnamese baguette sandwiches--or pho, the famous noodle soup. Then nurse a local draft beer, bia hoi, at a road side bar, and people watch.
