Yupe I heard that before motor bike is every where in Vietnam, but little to I know that Vietnamese and motor bike is integrated as one. And every body wear mask especially ladies are fully cover like ninja! After we checked ourselves in to the hotel, we got the hotel staff recommended a place to taste our first ever real Vietnamese Pho Bo, yupe it …
I had been warned about Ho Chi Minh City, Saigon as the locals call it, before I arrived. Friends and my trusty Lonely Planet Guide Book had described it as being one of the most chaotic cities in the world full of ridiculous traffic, unbearable pollution, petty crime, street beggars, assaulting sights and smells and a war torn history. I was …
Saa er det blevet tid til en opdatering.
De sidste dage i Hoi An boed bl.a. paa en dejlig cykeltur mellem rismarker og floder. Cykelturen endte med dejlig afslapning paa en smuk strand med palmer. Paa stranden kom der et vietnamesisk par hen til os. De boede i Hoi An (5 km fra stranden) og det var foerste gang de …
"Saigon...****; I'm still only in Saigon..." This however, was no movie my friends. I was here, in the ****. Finally, in the ****. And on day one, the ******** piled up fast, indeed. My wings, unlike Captain Willard's, were not quite mature enough yet to stay above it. Yet. I found the hotel late the previous night. The first of many, this one …
So fara so good. We found a great hotel room with a private rooftop sundeck. I was taking a walk the first night we got here and a guy jumped off the back of a scooter and tried to grab my phone while I was sending a text message. Gotta go...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
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
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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
