This hotel has a slightly odd setup, in that it exists at two addresses on differing street names. It reality they are 5 doors apart from each other, and as long as you can find the old town you should be able to get to them, despite the many impostors with the same name, but no Green Sign!
The Staff are very friendly and will provide you with information on what's around old town and further out, they also have a decent map of the old town, which is necessary, since it's a maze of interconnected alleys in parts.
The rooms are small, but big enough to house twins or a queen sized double, all furnishings are clean and comfortable and there is a fridge, TV, a/c and a fan. The wash room is standard in that the shower hangs almost over the sink on one side and toilet on the other - but again everything is clean and running hot water is the norm.
Stepping out of the hotel if you walk in one direction you will hit the Cathedral tethered to the South of old town, in the other you can head towards Ho Chi Minh's Memorial, museum and the one pillar pagoda - all about 15 - 20 mins walk away (5 by Om Xe).
They will also take care of your luggage should decided to take a two day trip to somewhere like Halom bay
We had a great time staying here - I'm sure you will too!
