the location is the best thing about this hotel. it is just few blocks away from where the bus passengers alight (mekong express). You don't need to ride a cab. everything you need is along the street (bui vien) from restaurants, convenience store, clubs or if you just need a chair and drink beer. We got the supreme room suite for $22 per night for 2 pax (promo in agoda). Very cheap but doesn't include bfast which is ok . You get your own bathroom which is my main priority. Given that it is along the clubs, it can be a little bit noisy at night or at dawn but it is tolerable for us (we're at 5th floor). Just close the bathroom door. Room space was alright given the price and the bed and pillows were alright too. We had a problem with the AC but it was immediately fixed by their staff after we called. Staff were really friendly and helpful. ask them to get a cab for you so you won't get hustled by the cab drivers. wifi is free but tends to get weak during the day. you can go to the lobby, wifi has good reception there. I will definitely book this hotel when I go back to Saigon.
