  • Group of friends

    Very nice and friendly staf, perfect place in street with lots of things to so, good complete rooms with safe include, wifi, airco. Breakfast is fine as well. Stayed here for 3 night and airport costs where 15$

  • Older travelers

    The staff were extremely welcoming, helpful and did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable. We booked a great 2 day trip to the Mekong Delta through the hotel which was well organised with excellent tour guides and pick up from the hotel. The staff called taxis promptly for us and gave drivers detailed instructions on locations we wanted to visit. Rooms were clean.Ours was at the rear of the hotel and fairly quiet.Lifts worked,showers were hot and the air con. cold.Nice breakfast on the top floor of Saigon Mini 5 next door with a great view. Good position on the edge of the backpackers area made street life hectic but vibrant and interesting. Great value for money. 5 star service.Thanks to Cathy, Sylvie and rest of the staff.

  • Couple

    The beds were extremely comfy. Room clean, staff friendly.

    The noise from the bar was annoying and the breakfast was limiting.

  • Couple

    Staff was very nice and helpful with suggestions about our trip. The breakfast room on the top of the building has a nice view of the city.

  • Couple

    This hotel is very clean. The staff is very nice. The location is great.

    The prices are just a bit expensive compare to other hotels in this area but they are worth it.

  • Couple

    location, breakfasts, free wifi, nice staff

    i was changed from saigon mini hotel 6 to saigon mini hotel 5 without my consent rooms are very small

  • Couple

    Nice hotel that was surprisingly quiet considering the area is full of tourists who were there to party. Plenty to check out just outside, heaps of bars and relatively cheep eateries. Not too far from sites of note, round a 150k taxi fare to War Remnants Museum/Reunification Palace and Airport.

    Bed was a wee bit hard however typical of Vietnam Hotels.

  • Couple

    Very good location, it's on the lively Bui Vien Street, 5min to the famous Pham Ngu Lao Street. Staff are helpful and friendly, rooms are clean.

    The superior rooms don't have a window, so they are dark and stifling.

  • Couple

    location is good,price is good.

    no hot water after day time!the first day, we have to shower with cold water in midnight because no one on duty at reception.another day we were told that hot water was supplied before 12pm. But when we arrived at hotel 9pm,that hadn't hot water at all. And the guy tried to fixxed it and kept us waiting for an hour.fanally, they couldn't fix it and no solutions for. Then we ask if any rooms has hot water in other rooms we can just take a shower,the guy finally took us to Mini Hotel 5(next to Mini hotel 6)for bathing. no socket for any electronic appliance except the one in bathroom.

  • Couple

    In the heart of the backpaper-area, you choose right to stay at Saigon Mini Hotel. The staff was very helpful and patient, upgrading our room for free the second time we came to Saigon. Breakfast is also a good deal, I highly recommend this hotel!

  • Couple

    The room was comfortable and the staff friendly. The location was great, a lot of restaurant in the visinity and near tourist attractions!

    Still a bit expensive for the quality. The shower was not that great.

  • Family with children

    The hotel was very convenient as it just near everything. The 2 rooms that we stayed in was very clean. The toilet is also very clean. Right price right place. It is very affordable. Will recommend it to my relatives. I really had a goodnight sleep. The bed is comfortable and clean. White color really looks nice and clean.

  • Couple

    The hotel has a good location. All the open tour busses start very close. At the same time it is not too loud. It is not very quiet but it's a big city so that is ok.

    The beds where very hard and uncomfortable.

  • Couple

    Extremely firndly and helpful staff. Good location. Clean and confortable at a very good price.

    Everything was above expectations.

  • Older travelers

    The ladies who worked during the day were very friendly and helpful and their English language skills were also very good. The location was perfect as it was close to many restaurants, street beer/food spots, bars and stores. Our room located on the 5th floor was bright (but with dark curtains when needed) with large windows and a great street view yet above any noise.

    The gentlemen staff in the evening were not nearly as friendly (would not say hello or open any doors even rhough there were many men by the door) and were not able to communicate as well.
