What we say:
As with the Huy Hoang next door, Hotel 31 (so-named due to its street address) is a popular stop with the Saigon tour-group mob scene, with its two-level restaurant filling up to bursting with tourists at lunch time. These temporary crowds aside, this is a very good value hotel with the streetside rooms big enough to play volleyball in and reasonably clean (though they could learn to sweep under the bed once a decade). Streetside rooms also have a small veranda. With rooms this large, it is hardly worth going for air-con as the room never really cools down, but fan with the veranda doors open should be adequate. As with the Huy Hong, the staff here are quite jaded.

Big room, rude staff.
Positives: Very big room with balcony and two big double beds for a good price. Clean. Fridge. Aircon and hot water were good. Food downstairs was cheap, not great. Negatives: Tried to give them my passport details when I checked in and they would not take the details. They then came up to my room late at night and woke me up demanding that I come downstairs now and give them my passport details. Room was not serviced. WiFi was bad. Bathroom smelled like sewerage. They motorbike they rented me was very, very old and not reliable.

Beware of the boss
We paid $7 for a double with fan in the building tucked away from the Ngo Duc Ke Street in a narrow street. In the room there were many ants. The room was a bit smelly but all together it was ok for that price. Beware of the boss! He told us the audacious lie that there is no ferryboat from Rach Gia to Phu Quoc at 1pm any more (he knows that for sure because his brother works for that company), only the one in the morning. Therefore we should take a private car which he could offer us.

Good, Bad, Ugly
The Good: - It's cheap - The staff was reasonably friendly - Decent food - The AC worked The Bad: - The room was pretty dingy - I was scared to look under the bed - AC was friekin' loud The Ugly: - Some guy - sounds like the one called ''the boss'' by another reviewer - bugged us non-stop to sign up for his tour. I can't remember if he was ugly or not, though.

GOOD AND BAD
The room was great and the restaurant too but the ''boss'' offered us a tour that turned out to be way too expensive and different from what we agreed (the 1st market was great, but we arrived at the 2nd market too late and there wer no boats left + the boat was sooooo slow (on purpose). When we complained, he disappeared.
