Diep Anh Guesthouse

Our rating:

Small Diep Anh Guesthouse is a great spot to stay if you’re lucky enough to snag one of their few rooms. The couple who owns and operates the guesthouse are accommodating and friendly, and they seem to genuinely care about their guests.

Found down the narrow alley at 241 Pham Ngu Lao, once you go through the “lobby” (in fact their living room which is cluttered with all the family’s worldly possessions), upstairs the rooms are simple, spacious and clean. Some of the furniture is mismatched but there’s air-con, WiFi, table and chair, window, medium sized fridge, a box TV and large, clean bathroom.

The biggest room can sleep up to four and it also has a good-sized balcony; if you’re travelling with a group this could be an ideal room to split.

There’s no lift (though the building is relatively low-rise) and breakfast is not included, something that we see as a bonus so you don’t miss an opportunity for a Vietnamese breakfast. These family-owned and operated homestay-like guesthouses are becoming rarer in Pham Ngu Lao these days. Like Vy Khan Guesthouse, which is just around the corner, it’s a kind of experience worth seeking out. Advanced booking recommended.

Much like Diep Anh’s cluttered lobby, alley 241 is narrower, more densely packed and busier than others. Unlike 373 or 283 Pham Ngu La, which are mostly just accommodation, 241 also has eateries, massages and touts thrown into the mix. Diep Anh is part of the action, only 100 m west of the Crazy Buffalo Bar and it’s a thruway between Pham Ngu Lao and Bui Vien. Some may call it atmospheric, others would call it claustrophobic. Whichever lens you view it, the rooms at Diep Anh are a respite in the middle of it all.
