This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The only good thing about the Hotel is the Location but there are hundreds of better value and quality hotels a\in this area so you can find better: DONT STAY at Kims Place!

First, we arrived around 5pm after a 8 hours bus ride and apparently they couldn't find our reservation and they said to us that they dont have anymore room for us! So after 20 minutes to them they finaly decide to call their boss and the boss said that he will arrive in the next 30 minutes to find a solution... Fine!

After another 1 and a half hour of waiting the boss finaly arrive and we were obviously not happy about that so we told him. His only answer was shouting on us very agressively that he didnt want to die on the road for us thats why he was late... ok...!

The boss offered us to take a bigger room for an extra $1/night as the double room that we booked was not anymore available. We were very tired and fed up that we accepted that.

So they put us in a 2 double room but at 10pm at night when we were about to go to bed a lady came to knock our door to tell us that we have to move room because a group of 4 people arrived and they sold the room to them...ahhah!

We saw the group of 4 people and they were in the same situation as us so we agreed to move to another room which was the room that we originaly booked and they gave us back $3/night... What a mess!

The boss wasnt helpfull and the lady who look after the place was even worse! When we first met her she was very agresive and unhappy and mentioned that she hates her boss...
She was not helpfull all the way and when we get back our 1 kg laundry wich was suppose to cost us $1, she tried to charge us $3.5 so I paid only $1 and she told me in front of every other guests F...k off!

Last word: DONT STAY THERE! There is better places

My friend and I were recommended to stay at Kim's Place by our friend who arrived a day ahead of us. When we arrived the reception area, which is also a tour desk, was clean and it seemed a nice place. We chose our room and checked in.... then we were lead outside the actual location and taken through the restaurant next door to our rooms upstairs. The smell that comes from this restaurant was like nothing I have smelt before - awful! The smell in the stairway up to the room is actually worse, I dont want to be too graphic here but I actually gagged everytime I left the room or on arrival back to it. The walls are sticky with grease as is the banister. I also saw one of the biggest rats I've ever seen in the restaurant one evening, the lady who owns it also saw it and didnt seem to care which I think it disgusting!
The room itself however is fine. A/C and a fan, TV (which doesnt work but we dont really mind as our friend said there are no English channels), Wifi, computer in the room, fridge and clean towels. The bathroom is very very small, I am 5ft8 and my head is about half an inch from touching the ceiling. So anyone taller would struggle to shower in there! We also saw a few cockroaches in there. The door is difficult to lock and unlock and you cant lock it with a key from the inside only a dodgy bolt going across. Also a door to the balcony was not locked so anyone could get in if they hopped over the railing from the other balconlys, lucky we had a padlock and managed to secure it that way.
Our friend however was staying in the main building and their coridoor was clean, nice stairway, proper doors that lock properly and their room was a little nicer than ours.
If you do stay here, make sure you stay in the main building, do not go through to the restaurant part. It really was unpleasant leaving the room and having to breathe in that awful smell!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Great hotel. We only booked 2 nights before we arrived but stayed for the whole time in Ho Chi Minh. Kim and his staff are really friendly. We booked three tours through Kim himself and on each one we asked other people what they had payed and we had payed the least on all three tours, which is nice. Rooms are clean and spacious. I would stay again.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We only stayed here for one night, in the Deluxe double ensuite room.
The room was spacious, had a fan, a/c, TV, fridge and a computer in the room.
Would not recommend for a long time stay, but was fine for a night.
