Thien Hoa Hotel
TravelPod Member ReviewsThien Hoa Hotel Ho Chi Minh City
We got into Ho Chi Minh after a total of 18 hours of flying and incredibly jet lagged. We ended up not having time to make reservations ahead of time, so the cab driver took us to this place after I told him I wouldn't pay more than $20 usd for a hotel room. I wonder if I would have said I wont pay more than $15 if he would have brought us to the same place..
Anyway! It was $20 usd a night for my boyfriend and I. The staff was super nice, the room was nice- our own bathroom with western toilet, shower with hot water, huge bed, our own private balcony and air conditioning! We also had a tv and a mini fridge, table and chair. They don't have wifi, but they have a computer on the reception floor that you can use for free.
I would absolutely recommend this place, I know $20 is pricey for Vietnam but it was worth it at the time. I would try to get a better price next time.

After this lovely afternoon I decided to go into town with a friend in my group for dinner. He told me he had found an awesome little Japanese restaurant within walking distance. This worked out perfectly. First, I didn't have to worry about any navigate. Second, I would have to walk out ...

Farewell HCMC and Mr.Van Nguyen
It was time for goodbyes but not without Van and Ruby both offering us generous packets of Vietnamese coffee to carry home as souvenirs. Van's service went beyond the call of duty and no future trips to Vietnam will ever be complete without a quick call to the best tour guide.
