The Alcove Library Hotel, Ho Chi Minh City
Great little boutique hotel not in tourist bubble
The hotel is nice, clean and cared for with a friendly staff and excellent food in the restaurant. It is on a little road off a big road so it is quiet because of the little road but it is convenient to services because of the big road. It is not in the main tourist district so not main tourist district prices but you have to be a little bit more willing to work on communication because it is not tourist-centric. Vietnam people seem very friendly and willing to try to communicate with you. I would recommend it as a nice place to stay to see a bit of non-tourist HCMC. Wi-fi only ok for email and search. Seemed not good enough for streaming but this may have been due to storms.

Quiet stay in Bustling Ho Chi Minh City
Stayed at the Alcove Library hotel for a weekend and loved it! A nice, quiet location one block away from a bustling main thoroughfare - Nguyen Van Troi. Plenty of coffee shops (including Starbucks) and local food shops within 5 minute walk. Approx. $70k taxi ride to Ben Thanh market and/or Vincom Center area. Approx. $50k to the airport. Hotel restaurant has great food and, if needed, you can also have food delivered to your room from any restaurant in the area using vietnammm food order/delivery website.

Always a pleasure to come back to.
This is our 5-6 time staying here. We fly in usually to Saigon then travel around. This hotel is always a must. Very nice love the beds after a long flight and the Pho is the best.

Great boutique hotel for an affordable price!
Great little boutique hotel hidden in a small street. The staff spoke fluent English and is very accommodating. We stayed with the hotel on two separate occasions during our trip to Ho Chi Minh city because the service was so great plus close distance to the airport! The beds were comfortable, rooms were clean, and breakfast was adequate.
