Luan Vu is a dream place to stay for travelers wishing for cheap accommodation but still offers comfort, cleanliness, and serenity. Although this guest house is located in Bui Vien, a very busy and kicking street where all sorts of tourism business go on night and day, it is comfortably tucked in a small alley. The result is that although we're only some steps away from the busy street, we don't get the noise. The alley is so comfortable that we could eat our breakfast with the front doors wide open.
The bathroom was spacious, and there's always hot water. The rooms are AC-ed, and if you were lucky like us, you could get a room with windows that face the alley, and you can watch the daily life in HCMC unroll through them.
The breakfast was nice, although it's always bread with butter and jam or bread with egg, to be flushed down with great vietnamese coffee or tea. The owner and the staff were always friendly and helpful, and they spoke good English.
Laundry is clean and quick - put your dirty clothes in a basket outside your door in the morning, they'll return clean at 5 in the afternoon - although they are not ironed. Internet is available.
From Bui Vien, we can cover most tourist attractions in District 1 on foot. There are a lot of shops and restaurant that are very affordable (some shops even sell things cheaper than in markets like Benh Thanh). And the guest house fixes an amazing price too - each of us only spent about 10 USD each night. We stayed for a total of 7 nights.
The only thing we might complain about is the absence of elevator, but that didn't mean much, really.
