Meraki Hotel, Ho Chi Minh City

Overall nice...but things to consider
We had an overall nice stay. The people working at the hotel were very friendly, and there was a beautiful rooftop view of the city. My boyfriend and I wanted to take a couple-day trip to the Mekong Delta area (specifically Can Tho), and the hotel concierge helped us arrange travel by bus (our preferred method of transportation). The only aspect of our stay that made us rate this less-than-5-stars was some sort of issue that we were encountering with the toilet. It would frequently make some strange gargling sound and the toilet would start bubbling (imagine when a pot of water starts boiling). This would happen even when we were using the toilet (which you can imagine isn't super pleasant and sort of concerning). Nothing ultimately went wrong, but we were sort of on our toes the whole time, wondering whether the toilet would start flooding or something. We even put our suitcases on the desk just in case... One other thing to consider is that if you stay in the room on the first floor with a view of the street, it will be loud until late hours of the night / early am hours. Not a huge concern if you are one of the people who is not in your hotel room at these hours, but might be a concern if you want to sleep before the early am hours.

Do not go there
They cheats on guest with the photos. The hotel is very dirty, especially the beddings. I don't think they ever change sheets after each guest. Another problem that it has a very strange smell, like there was a dead rat in the hallway during our stay :(. I brought this issue up to the staff but there was nothing done to remove the smell. If you are looking for a nice and quiet place, this is NOT a place for you. The hotel is located near the center of the city and in one of the most dirtiest and loudest spots. All the bars and food vendors are all around with loud music and you cannot walk down the street without their employees trying to pull you into their establishments with their over priced menus. The night will get loudest from 10pm to 3-4 am. On Saturday and Sunday night, the road will be blocked from vehicles for ppl to party all night long. The hotel provided breakfast however the selection is very limited and you will get the same thing every day. There are many things I want to say but it's not worth it. Just stay somewhere else!!! The staff was nice and accomodating though.

Great staff! In the middle of the fun. Loud.
Great staff! Location is right smack dab in the middle of all the ruckus which is great if that's what you're looking for. It will be pretty loud late into the night but that's what you're signing up for if you want to stay in a hotel on Bui Vien street. Beds were clean but the room itself could be cleaner.

Loved having the elevator to the 6th floor... not
We stayed at the Meraki for 2.5 nights (paid 3 left in the evening for the airport). We have stayed several times in HCMC District 1 and in every place we stayed we walked tight little stairways to 5th and 6th floor rooms….. BUT not at the Meraki… they have an elevator… loved it. The hotel is in a great location and it very clean with great services. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was pretty good. There is also laundry services in the lower under entrance level to catch up on clean clothes at a reasonable price. Overall I don’t have much to say about this place, no complaints; it was comfortable, clean, good aircon, nice bed and bathroom, and the elevator nice. Would stay here again for sure.

Close to the Action.
This hotel is a very good hotel right in the center of the entertainment area, the staff are friendly and helpful, the room i had was clean, the only negative i found with this hotel was it was a bit too close to the entertainment area, even though i was on the 5th floor, the thump thump thump of the techno music being blasted out from the bars on Bui Vien st could still be heard, but if you do not mind loud music, then this hotel could not be any closer to the action.
