My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights. We weren't blown away by Ho Chi Minh City, which can be exhausting due to the relentless traffic and choking pollution, however the Alcove Library Hotel was a welcome escape from the chaos of the City. Pro's include large rooms, comfortable bed and a truly excellent breakfast (one of the best...

I've read other reviews say that they did not like the neighborhood and that there was not anything to do. While it is a ways away from the center of town, we actually found some good places to eat and a cool coffee shop within walking distance of the hotel. The big advantage to the location is that it is...

We arrived kind of late in Ho Chi Minh and wanted a hotel relatively close to the airport to stay just for 1 night as we were travelling onwards the day after. Our room was very clean and nice (we were upgraded from standard to grand free of charge!) and staff was extremely helpful. We had dinner and breakfast in...

We stayed one night as it is a great location from the airport. The best thing about this hotel is the wonderful staff. They were helpful and quick to help with our bags and calling for a Grabcar or taxi. They were efficient in every way. The double room is very spacious but the twin room is standard. They packed...

We stayed at the Alcove with my parents and two small children after a late flight into Ho Chi Minh City. This is a beautiful, delightful little hotel located on a quiet alley with great airport transfer. The breakfast was lovely and all the staff warm and helpful. Highly recommended if you have a late flight in or an early...

We stayed for two nights at the Alcove Library, checking in on New Year's Day. The hotel is small and tastefully designed, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the breakfast is very good in the rooftop restaurant, lovely to be able to take in the rooftop views and the morning sun. We were especially impressed by the little touches,...

The alcove library hotel is truly a factor which made our stay in Ho Chi Minh City much more pleasant and memorable. It is an authentic hotel with great and delicious breakfast options on their own rooftop restaurant. Although it is located about 20mins outside the city centre, we always took an Uber (very cheap to get there) and therefore...

Great staff. Comfy rooms. Breakfast is perfect with both local and western offerings. Pancakes were a pleasant surprise! Morning view with coffee, perfect. Location is great if connecting early as is just 15 minutes from the airport. Is a distance from district 1, but can manage with Uber or a taxi.

This peaceful hotel is about 10 minutes away from Tan Son Nhat airport. You can request for a pick-up service and you will be brought to this hotel in style. When you arrive you can see it is a hidden treasure inside a world of busyness. Rooms are nice and the best thing about this hotel is the restaurant at...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to The Alcove Library Hotel, an unrivaled boutique hotel experience in the centre of Ho Chi Minh City. We opened our doors in July 2012 and are located just off Nguyen van Troi street, the main avenue connecting the Tan Son Nhat International Airport to the city centre. This prime location offers great convenience to our guests, as the airport and the city are usually only 10 to 15 minutes away by taxi, depending on traffic conditions. Nestled in a charming and quiet neighbourhood street, The Alcove Library Hotel also offers respite from the hustle and bustle of the city, and yet represents a perfect base from which to explore the excitement of Saigon.In keeping with our name, The Alcove Library Hotel offers a sanctuary of deluxe accommodations, architectural elegance and timeless style. Our rooms feature supremely comfortable beds and pillows, over 70 channels on flat screen TVs, and a range of amenities designed to cater to the needs of discerning and savvy travelers.Our hotel is meant to be enjoyed, experienced and rediscovered with each visit. We have an extensive library that offers a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction books for guests to borrow during their stay with us. High-speed wireless Internet connectivity is also available free-of-charge in guestrooms and throughout public areas. Our concierge service can also help tailor a personal itinerary, offering recommendations on places to visit. Our restaurant on our fifth floor, the Roadhouse Saigon, aims to offer the best burgers and contemporary fare in town. Guests can eat in air-conditioned comfort or enjoy the outdoor terrace overlooking neighboring rooftops. At The Alcove, a new level of hospitality in Saigon awaits you, where smiles abound, the service is gracious, your needs are anticipated, and your comfort is our top priority. ... more   less
