I was very pleased with our stay. Our room did not have a window (I believe only the deluxe rooms do) but that didn't matter. Clean room, working air con, daily linen changes. Only gripe is the sink didn't work amazingly well and the toilet was a weak flush... Very nit picky things! Very quiet rooms considering the street outside...

This hotel is a great choice if you're staying in the backpacker area and don't want a hostel but are traveling on a budget. Our room was very large and super clean. Comfortable for four people. The breakfast on the rooftop was adequate and the staff were very nice. Even though Bui Vien is a boisterous street, it was nice...

I was delighted to find this hotel, particularly after the one I'd booked on line turned out to be awful and I was walking around looking for another place. My room and bathroom were modern and spotless. The staff were all friendly and helpful. They have a nice covered rooftop area you can spend some time in and see the...

Travelling with a large family is not easy or cheap. This hotel was very good value for money. It is in the backpacker district and is not an expensive hotel so don't expect park royal level accommodation. No major issues and the staff did all they can to make our stay good. Would return again. BBQ resturant that comes alive...

Stayed here about two weeks ago and we were put in a better room and given extra sheets and fans when requested. Was a lovely jester as we had just flown in from new Zealand and we're really struggling with the heat. The staff were lovely and we really enjoyed Ho Chi Minh city. Thanks heaps!!

Ive stayed on Bui Vien St before so i knew what i was getting. Plenty of Life. Bars galore. Loads of places to eat and never a dull moment.

I'm honestly not sure how to rate this hotel as I don't know what the standard for this backpacker region of HCMC is. So I will just describe it as I saw it. Meraki is towards the end of the very busy Bui Vien. The area is known for small rooms and backpacker clientele. The street is a ton of...
