I stayed at the Bee Saigon. For $10 I got a lovely room with lots of nice decorative features. A nice break from the rundown bare rooms typical of backpacker places. It was also the only room I had in SEAsia where there was a separate, enclosed tub/shower so that the floor didn't get wet. What a nice treat! The people seemed nice enough-the office is at the Bi Saigon a few doors down. I didn't eat at the restaurant.

Historical Traveler Reviews Bi & Bee Saigon Hotel & Restaurant Ho Chi Minh City
Pas cher et sympa !
Nous avons passé deux nuits au Bee Saigon en mars 2007, et nous avons payé 27 USD la nuit, ce qui était raisonnable. Nous avions une chambre donnant sur la façade, très spacieuse, avec balcon et vue sur la rue. Certaines chambres n'ont pas de fenêtre alors il vaut mieux préciser que vous en voulez une. L'hôtel est super bien situé, dans le quartier des backpackers, avec un tas de bars et de restaurants tout autour. Le petit déjeuner était également incroyablement bon (je vous conseille les crêpes). Le seul bémol est que c'est bruyant la nuit et que le personnel n'est pas des plus sympa.
Cheap & Cheerfull!
Stayed at the Bee Saigon for 2 nights in March 07, payed $27 a night for the room which was a good price. Stayed at a room at the front of the hotel which was very spacious and had a nice balcony and view of the street, some of the rooms don't have a window so its worth making sure you ask for one. The hotel is in an absolutely perfect location for backpacker area and bars and restaurants etc. The breakfast was also surprising yummy (would recommend the pancakes). The only down side is that the room was quite noisy at night and the staff were not that friendly.
Nous avons passé 2 nuits au Bee Saigon, puis, plus tard dans la même semaine (après un voyage sur la côte) une nuit au Bi Saigon. Ils appartiennent et sont tenus par les mêmes personnes ; ils sont juste à quelques bâtiments d'écart...
Nous avons réservé nos trois premières nuits au Saigon au Bi & Bee Hotel. Le prix était convenable et les photos sur leur site internet étaient très belles.
First Class Scam Merchants
We had Booked this hotel But no airport pickup was requested. I then cancelled the booking after reading reviews here. However, our plane was early and the pick up from our booked hotel was late. These people were waiting with our name on a placard and we thought they were from our booked hotel. Surprise! we are delivered to Bi Bee Saigon hotel. After a lengthy argument and threats to us to call the police for nonpayment. I welcomed the police to come and they backed off. We ended up paying US$10 for a cab ride we didnt want. What a disgusting welcome to HCMC anf Vietnam. Be warned... Nasty and cunning people.
Not worth it by any stretch. Let's start with the reservation. They quickly replied to my inquiry, quoting prices that were higher than what they advertise on their website! When I pointed this out they agreed to charge me their posted rates.
We stayed for 2 nights in Bee Saigon, then later that week (after a trip up the coast) 1 night in Bi Saigon. They're owned and operated by the same people - they're just a few buildings away from one another....
Poor start to our trip
We booked our first three nights in Saigon at the Bi & Bee Hotel. The price was good and the pictures on their web site looked great.
We arrived at night and were immediatly concerned with the hotel. The room was old and in poor repair. The bathroom shower leaked water onto the floor and flooded the entire area. The condition and cleanliness of the entire facility left much to be desired, even by the standards of this area of Saigon.
We were also concerned with the characters hanging around in the front desk area as they appeared to be of a questionable sort.
We stayed the one night and left the next morning for the Anh Tu in dist.3. It was better.
I just got back from this hotel. There were definite pros and cons.
