I really enjoyed staying at phan lan 2 Hotel!! The staff was very nice, spoke well english and was very helpfull and supportive when it came to organizing tours and flights! Also i liked where the Hotel was located: on a rather quiet street where you could eat great authentic vietnamese food and had just to walk 2 minutes to the main road if you wanted to drink a beer and meet other People! Definately staying there again if i return to ho-chi-minh-city one day!!


Staff very friendly and helpful, steep stairs with no lift but a winch system to get bags up and down. Very quiet even though in the middle of the backpacker area.


The first room we were given was on the fifth floor (there was no elevator) and was tiny! After speaking to staff about finding a hostel with a bigger room, we were offered a much bigger room on the first floor (for the same price). Excellent location, just around the corner from great restaurants and a number of bars. Staff were helpful when it came to booking tours.

Great hotel located in the backpacker section. Clean, safe, nice rooftop for relaxing, good staff, and overall a great experience. Great value for money. wifi was decent, as well.


Great place for private rooms. Clean and good. Helpful and pleasant staff. Not a people meeting place.

Stayed here for 3 nights. The staff is great. The girl working the counter really does look out for you. Very close to the main street. Place is cleaned everyday. Highly recommended.


The breakfast was excellent, especially the fresh juices were more than you can expect from such a low price. The location was very good and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely return! :)


Highly recommend this place! The staff were fantastic - helpful, knowledgeable and friendly! It's a perfect location as it is in the heart of the back packer area but not on the main street and so quiet.


Nice clean place although i had no window...


This hotel is located in a narrow street in the district 1 where are all the tourists, but thank's to his position it's calm and not noisy. Staff is excellent, they helped me with a couple of tours at reasonalble prices and also to book the bus to Da-lat. Room was very clean, with air-co and warm shower. breakfast is included. I would defitely return here!
