We’re an eight-room boutique hotel on the banks of the Saigon river in lush tropical gardens with a large wooden deck stretching out over the river. We serve a great breakfast, and we have a small bar & food menu available for our in-house guests from 11:00 am until 9:30 pm. All our rooms have comfortable king-sized beds and full amenities – wifi, refrigerator, tea and coffee, and international television channels.
What we are – and what we’re not
We’re a rustic boutique hotel with french-tiled rooms, set in a mainly out-door environment in tropical gardens on the banks of the Saigon river. We do not have a business center or a swimming pool, nor do we have rooms that black-out entirely (we’re a cottage and they don’t), nor can we control the noise of a boat’s chugging engine as it passes along the river, and nor can we guarantee that you won’t get a mosquito bite (we’re in Asia, we have repellent, but it happens). We’re definitely not for everyone, but for our regular guests, these are the very reasons they return again and again. Note that for the comfort of our guests who enjoy the tranquility that we offer, we do not allow children under 12.
We have eight rooms, five of which have river-views, one has a garden view, and two have their own small gardens and resort-style open air-bathrooms. All our rooms have comfortable king-sized beds and full amenities – wifi, refrigerator, tea and coffee, and international television channels.
Breakfast, the bar, and our in-house menu
We serve a great breakfast from 07:30 hrs to 10:00 hrs of coffee or tea, juice, croissants, bacon & eggs, or muesli. We can prepare a packed breakfast for guests who need an early check-out or who would prefer to have their breakfast on-the-go.
Our bar and dining menu are available for in-house guests from 11:00 am until 9:30 pm. The simple yet great-tasting menu prepared by our in-house chef includes sandwiches, salads, and traditional Vietnamese noodle soup. We can serve you at the bar, on the deck, or in your room.
We’re located at the end of a small lane on the bank of the Saigon river in Thao Dien, a residential area around 20 minutes by taxi from the bustling center of Saigon. Thao Dien offers a huge variety of restaurants with a global spread of cuisines, bars, boutique shopping, and cafe’s. The calmer pace of Thao Dien can be a welcome break from the city center, yet that always remains just a quick taxi-ride away.
