We stayed here for two days after an organized trip. We had originally picked it for its proximity to the airport as we had an early flight. Our plans changed at the last minute, but we don't regret staying here after all! It's tucked away on a little side street, but is close to shops and restaurants. There is a...

Very cute boutique hotel near the airport but, as you've probably read - quite out of the way for anything else. It's great for a quiet night after a series of meetings - or partying - before you fly out. Very nice, literary touches all around and it gives you a homey feel with the comforts of a hotel.

My hubby and I have an excellent stay here. Loved the warm and friendly services from their staff, namely Peter, Dani and Lucy. They went beyond helping us to book taxis but also recorded the taxi number plates in case if we left something behind; recommending + booking restaurants and give very clear directions for our tour. Their breakfast is...

The friendly and competent staff made it easy for tired travellers to have a comfortable overnight stay. And...

This is an excellent hotel, tucked away from the traffic noise yet close to the action. Was pleasantly surprised. The Bookmark restaurant on the top floor is great as well. The beds were comfortable and the way they have added character to the hotel is sensational. Great value for money.

I needed a decent hotel not too far from the airport on my return from a 2 week stay in Vietnam and Cambodia. The price was very reasonable and reviews here were good.

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

“Apparently some rooms don't have a view (they look out a wall), which isn't a problem if you're only here for a quick stay before a flight. We spent the small amount more to get a view (and some natural light!).”
