TravelPod Member ReviewsAn An Hotel Ho Chi Minh City
This is the first hotel that we stayed in Vietnam. I was very not very sure when I booked them from Lonely Planet website, especially when we were there it happened to be renovating very dusty at lobby and the reception desk at the corner of the stairway.
But we when in to the room and wow we are, the rooms are so spacial, clean and blight. When we approach the staffs for recommending places for local Vietnamese food and local tour agent. Those names in their list have given us super experiences and good value for money well worth.
We book for 2 more days after the trip from Mekong Delta and back from Hoi An, we really enjoy there not only for the convincer location but good service that we have.

Historical Traveler Reviews An An Hotel Ho Chi Minh City
Very good hotel
We stayed at the Anan for three nights early Feb 2007, we paid $32USD a night for a 'superior room'. The room on the 6th floor was spotless, our first impression was 'wow' when we walked in. There's a telly with cable in the room and also a fridge and big electronic safe (we could get our laptop in it). It's got free in room high speed internet which is cool! It also has a lift that was working all of the time that we were there. The pickup from the airport was in a new car, but a bit pricey at $12USD (what price security though?) There's no brekkie but we bought some sticky buns from a charity shop (Sozo) that helps the under-priviliged down the road.
For evening meals the 333 restaurant is good value (there's a menu in the room). We tried another place that was closer and we were very dissapointed.
We got the attached travel agency place to book up an onward hotel in Hoi An, this was quite easy to do. We also did a 1/2 day cu-chi tunnel tour ($4US per person) with them - the driver was very competent and the guide was really good. they did seem a little pushy to sell their tours when we checked in but we just booked what we wanted and it turned out fine.
I stayed here in early January 2007. After reading the reviews here, I was undecided about this hotel and only came here when I couldn't find other hotels. It was a pleasant surprise to enter an exceptionally clean room (no.401 - if memory serves), with TV (CNN, cable movies etc), complimentary bottled water, safe. The lights could be brighter but no complaints. The hotel is well-located. The doorman was very helpful and friendly, the reception business-like. The breakfast was not too bad. I paid USD38 (inclusive all taxes etc) for a double room.
Can't go wrong with this place
What a great place to stay!
We were a little bit apprehensive at first, but as soon as we arrived, the staff were friendly, cooperative, and helpful.
The room was clean and tidy and the bathroom spotless.
Big room with a safe - and the location was great - about 5 mins walk to Ben Thanh Market, and a short taxi ride to everything else... Also, TNK tours were downstairs, and easy to book.
Can't go wrong with this place.
Great hotel, but communicate clearly!
The hotel is located in District 1, and not a bad location but I'm sure there are better out there. We stayed there for three nights paying $30, which we thought was a little over priced particularly as we were put into a more expensive room that we didn't want.
We had a triple room even though we asked for a double. There was one double and one single bed and the room was huge (there are two rooms on each floor). It had large windows giving good light, a desk with internet access, a fridge, satellite TV and a safe in the wardrobe. The bathroom was a good size with a bathtub and possibly the best hot shower I've had so far in the 6 weeks we've been away.
The room was very clean, although I left a can of drink out for a little while and it was discovered by ants. Putting mosquito repellent in the affected areas prevented any come back for the rest of the stay. The bathroom was also very clean, and the hotel cleaned the room every day. We were lucky in the end that we had the triple room as one side of the double bed sagged down and was uncomfortable to sleep on. Other than that, the rest of the bed and other one was very comfortable.
The service was OK but there was some confusion as to how many nights we wanted to stay and they tried to bump us to the An An Hotel 2, which I've never heard of before. We were lucky that we'd emailed them so referred them to the email and got our three nights, but we were asked every time we went through reception when we were checking out. They'd obviously overbooked.
We made use of the laundry facility, which was good but bear in mind it doesn't come back until the next afternoon rather than the end of the same day, as normally happens. We also booked a tour to the Mekong Delta through them, which was a good tour and we had no complaints about the service relating to the tour advice.
Breakfast is not included, but if you turn right out the road and over the crossroads there is a coffee shop that does great breakfasts.
- Large and clean rooms with great hot showers
- Internet access in the room
- Safety deposit box in the room
- Relatively quiet rooms despite all the action on the streets
- Tours arranged through the hotel
- Not that near the main attractions
- Service wasn't very good, or appeared to have a bad memory
- Keep anything sweet away and you won't get the ants
Budget Hotel with Luxuries
Chose An An as there are many good reviews on its rooms, location and its value for money. True to the good reviews, its one of the best budget hotel that I've stayed. We'd booked 2 superior double room for US$28/night but they upgraded us to a superior triple (3 single beds) seeing that I've a 5 yr old son with us (I room with my girlfriend ). My dad and my hubby got a Luxury Double room! (TIP: Try to get a room in Room 1 eg, 0401 (4th flr, room 1) as they are away from the road. Room 2, not so bad with air-con & all windows closed) Both rooms are really spacious with bathtub and Cable TV. Guests get to use the free internet service at the lobby. Receptionists are friendly and speak quite good English.
The hotel is just a short 3 mins walk to Sinh Cafe where we booked our tour to Mekong Delta, My Tho. We didn't use TNK Travel at the hotel cos' ...didn't dare to take a bet. The Mekong tour is only US$7, just book when you're there... We went on 23rd Dec and there are 3-4 buses going My Tho that day from Sinh Cafe. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and we got to take all the different boats and sampang.... what we see from the pictures.
We like the food at Cafe 333 (a stone throw away, opp Southern Hotel or Ann Ann 2). Must drink their white coffee. Cheap and very good! For Pho Bo, go to Pho 2000 (just opp Benh Thanh Market).... We think it's the best among the many that we've tried over the 5 days in HCM! Will definitely recommend this hotel. Its good value, great location!
Very good value
The An An hotel and their sister property are both very good ideas when thinking of the backpacker area of Saigon. I stayed at the original property, booked through the website and was promptly quoted 32 USD for a room for three. I also used the airport transfer service for $7.
The staff was very pleasant and fast. The rooms were clean and of a decent size. There is an extremely reasonable minibar, and the travel desk downstairs was extremely helpful in booking tours and for advice. They also have a computer for your usage with the internet in the lobby.
There is also a recently acquired An An 2 hotel, which they may defer you to if the An An is booked. It's a 2 minute walk away, and those rooms were equally, if not nicer appointed, and the lobby was very nice. A room for 3 there was $30.
The location is great, and there's a decent if not overtly touristy bar across the street. I would definitely stay there again. While not luxury, the price and quality was fantastic.
Good things in small packages
Compact hotel but spacious room. Newish, clean and friendly. We were 5 Aussies travelling together and we all agreed it was excellent value for money. Just wish we had more than one night - will just have to go back!
A cut above
I found the An An Hotel to be an excellent establishment. The rooms are a generous size, have ensuite bathrooms, cable TV, cheap mini bar prices, quiet effective aircon, room safe etc. The hotel is very clean and relatively quite for its position in the main backpackers' street.
Though not including breakfast in the tarrif, there are plenty of eating establishments within a couple of hundred metres.
Cannot recommend the inhouse laundry service. They use low grade detergent that leaves the clothes smelling very strongly of cheap perfume, so overwhelming I had to rewash my stuff.
Be warned that the hotel will add 4% to bills paid by Mastercard.
Would definately stay here again.
Great hotel, friendly staff and overall best value
im not a backpacker nor a businessman just a lone leisure traveler that likes to be comfortable when i travel i found the an an after looking on elephant guide not having much confidence in travel guide recommendations i decided to check it out after staying several days at the metropole which i booked while in thailand. now this is in the backpacker area which isnt my cup of tea but i was pleasantly surprised. it is a small high rise hotel kept in excellent condition with an all most too helpful staff and spacious clean rooms. if you are a breakfast person while they dont serve food you have the option of either ordering out or going to the numerous and quite good restaraunts that engulf the area. a short taxi ride ( i recommend taxis and not "mota bikes" except after dark ) to any point of interest in the city which is about a dollar well worth it since the city is jam packed with motorbike traffic and crossing the main streets can be a bit harrowing. well back to the an an great staff very friendly and thats saying alot this isnt thailand taxi transfers to the airport for 5 dollars and free internet in the lobby i stayed on the top floor suites which were 32 dollars per night well worth it this should be your base for a stay in saigon and if you stay here on my advice and dont think its the best bet i will send you 100 dollars ha ha well maybe just 100 dong ok other places i stayed in saigon to compare overall value to: metropole -great breakfast buffet only and over priced just ok, bong sen - nice rooms but over priced unless you are with a companion ( avoid the annex, new world - outstanding but this is a 5 star and its 5 times the price, and several other well known places try the an an tell them the uncle ho sent you
Great little hotel
I recently stayed at An An hotel in the heart of the backpacker area in HCM city. It's a nice, small, tallish, new hotel with decent sized rooms and all the comforts needed, TV, A/C, hot water for tea, minibar, and very reasonably priced. The hotel staff was very helpful, with good suggestions on tours to fit my time and budget
