This family-run spot, on a hidden alley that's both quiet and full of local colour, has friendly staff and rooms that are spacious and clean – although one we were shown had a distinct smell of cigarette smoke.
Rooms are at three price levels: the most expensive have balconies and rather pleasant views over the surrounding houses, the midrange rooms are at the rear without veranda and the cheapest, very small rooms, are in between with no views at all. Bathrooms, while small, are tidy enough and overall the place is well-maintained. The hotel is on Tam Thuong alley, just off Yen Thai St.
