We stayed here just the one night while waiting for a connecting flight to Nha Trang. Only 19 mins from the airport ... we arrived at about 1am in the morning. Staff were waiting and opened the gates for us with big smiles and efficient service. Breakfast was a very pleasant surprise ... roof top restaurant, beautifully presented. Fruit, yoghurt,...

The most friendly staff i've ever experienced; very helpful, young motivated staffs. Great breakfast on the top floor. Very hommy environment, unique decoration. Room is pretty standard but the shower is great. Everything was just easy. What not so great is the fact that there is no window in my room, not sure about the other room. Also, the location,...

This was one of the best hotels we've stayed in our Asia tour. Very clean, friendly staff, very nice breakfast with a bif variety of foods to choose form. The only disadvanatge is that this cannot be considered a downtown hotel, as it is 20 min from where the life in Ho Chi Minh is, but on the other hand...

Stayed couple of nights at The Alcove Library Hotel, and weren't disappointed. Nice room with comfy bed and pillows. The eggs Benedict was unbelievably good for breakfast and meals in the restaurant equally good. Great service from all staff who also helped us arrange our onward journey.

Not a lavish menu or drinks list but very...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to The Alcove Library Hotel, an unrivaled boutique hotel experience in the centre of Ho Chi Minh City. We opened our doors in July 2012 and are located just off Nguyen van Troi street, the main avenue connecting the Tan Son Nhat International Airport to the city centre. This prime location offers great convenience to our guests, as the airport and the city are usually only 10 to 15 minutes away by taxi, depending on traffic conditions. Nestled in a charming and quiet neighbourhood street, The Alcove Library Hotel also offers respite from the hustle and bustle of the city, and yet represents a perfect base from which to explore the excitement of Saigon.In keeping with our name, The Alcove Library Hotel offers a sanctuary of deluxe accommodations, architectural elegance and timeless style. Our rooms feature supremely comfortable beds and pillows, over 70 channels on flat screen TVs, and a range of amenities designed to cater to the needs of discerning and savvy travelers.Our hotel is meant to be enjoyed, experienced and rediscovered with each visit. We have an extensive library that offers a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction books for guests to borrow during their stay with us. High-speed wireless Internet connectivity is also available free-of-charge in guestrooms and throughout public areas. Our concierge service can also help tailor a personal itinerary, offering recommendations on places to visit. Our restaurant on our fifth floor, the Roadhouse Saigon, aims to offer the best burgers and contemporary fare in town. Guests can eat in air-conditioned comfort or enjoy the outdoor terrace overlooking neighboring rooftops. At The Alcove, a new level of hospitality in Saigon awaits you, where smiles abound, the service is gracious, your needs are anticipated, and your comfort is our top priority. ... more   less
