Ho Chi Minh Accommodation: HONG HAN HOTEL

Thursday, January 09, 2014

Among the many accommodation choices lining up the streets of District 1 or the more popularly known as Backpacker's District, Hong Han Hotel/Hostel stood out as Tripadvisor's Traveller's Choice Winner for 2013 which is the reason why it became our choice of accommodation while staying for 3 nights at Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam .

It's a 7 storey building with 2 rooms on each floor. Our room on the 3rd floor was very neat, smells really good, spacious, with windows, with good air-conditioning, a bathroom with hot and cold water and a mini ref. The place has no lift so prepare to walk some flights of stairs, it's good for the heart though;). You can try to book for a room on the 1st floor, that's the ideal floor you'd love to be in. 1st floor is actually the 2nd floor, the floor with the balcony where we usually lounge around, chatting and checking out people while having our breakfast.That's also where you can use their computer and printer for free. Strong and free wifi connection is also available on each room at every floor.

The room rates given to us  for a triple room that accommodated 4 pax with breakfast included are:

1st Night - 23 USD (for 2 pax)
2nd Night - 32 USD (for 4 pax)
3rd Night - 32 USD (for 4 pax)

Hong Han hotel is at the heart of backpacker's area where all the actions take place. You can find a place to eat anytime of the day, sit on one of the many stools provided by vendors lining along the streets, order pho, coffee or beer or some street food or appetizer or you could choose to hit the bars and have more fun.

Also, Nhung and Anh, the sibling tandem managing the guesthouse, who not only speak good English but are also very cheerful, helpful and warm added more to the charm of this hostel.

If you want to book a room with them, you can choose to visit their website at www.honghanhotelhcm.com or better yet send them an email at HotelHongHan@yahoo.com, which is what I did and get a fast response and a booking confirmation without paying a cent. You'll also have a better chance of snagging a good deal when you communicate with them thru email. Nhung even gave me some more discount during our check out.
