Review: ONO Saigon Hotel, Vietnam 10

After my trip from Thailand and Cambodia, I reached my last leg of my 2 weeks Asia trip. I took a Giant Ibis Bus from Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minh City, the bus had stopped at Pham Ngu Lao Street, the backpackers street of Ho Chi Minh City.

Pham Ngu Lao Street is 10 mins away from ONO Saigon Hotel. I was quick to make my way to check into ONO Saigon Hotel. Interestingly, I was surprised to know that ONO which means One N Only, it is located in an alley along the main road and was family run. I had the honour to be hosted at the standard, the deluxe and the VIP room.


While walking towards the alley, I was happy and excited to see the ONO Saigon Hotel sign pointing me to the hotel. The check-in process was fast and seamless, I was quickly whisked into the standard room to place my stuff before heading out for beers with my friends.

The standard room and the deluxe room was simple and clean. The bed in the standard room reminds me of the Japanese Futon. After I unpacked and a quick shower, I head out to meet my friends for dinner and beer near Pham Ngu Lao Street.

If you would like some quality sleep, I would suggest not staying at Pham Ngu Lao Street, as it is the street that never sleeps, and with clubs located a stone throw away, you would definitely have panda eyes every night if you are a light sleeper.

ONO Saigon Hotel does not provide any breakfast, but out of the hotel and on the street, you would be delighted and spoilt with choices from street vendors.

The VIP room has a round bed which was the first time I ever sleep in a round bed, the bed was comfortable and the area was quiet and peaceful. ONO is located near many important landmarks, which are walking distance away.
