Functional and homely
What we say:
Kim Loan is a mid-size guesthouse that offers basic but comfortable accommodation at reasonable rates.
Don't be put off by the steel-gated exterior on the narrow and quiet alley that connects Co Bac and Co Giang near Pham Ngu Lao; the ground-floor lobby feels more like a living room, and in fact it doubles as a common space complete with a TV, VCR and karaoke machine. Rooms are accessed by a narrow stairwell and roofless walkway. While lacking any hint of decor, they are spotless, reasonably spacious and equipped with fridge, TV, desk and at least one window. Private hot water bathrooms are a little cramped but should be serviceable for most. Fan rooms are exactly the same as air-con editions, minus the air-con.
Kim Loan has a good reputation and is sometimes full, so you might contact them in advance, or be prepared to poke around for something else. Nearby California Guesthouse is another good choice.
