We were worried Bich Duyen would be another impersonal, generic hotel but it is family run and the proprietress is there to care for guests, there for check in and check out.

Bich Duyen is something of a mix between a guesthouse and budget hotel and unsurprising, with such a watchful eyes looking after her nest, the rooms are immaculately clean, tidy and modern.

The least expensive room doesn’t have a window (except for a faux window to the hall), yet both the room and the bathroom sparkles with cleanliness, and it boasts a separate shower stall, not a wetroom bathroom which is usual at this price point. However, it is a squeeze and as the bed is one step smaller than a queen-size bed, it is most suitable for the single traveller.

Do splurge on the larger rooms as it has plenty of space and natural light. All rooms have a flatscreen TV, wardrobe, air-con, fan and WiFi. Bich Duyen has a hotel-feel at a guesthouse price.

Smart and bright rooms.

This hotel has no elevator, so be prepared for a hike if you’re on the top/fourth floor. Breakfast is included. Alley 283, which is one of the sleepier alleys in Pham Ngu Lao as the majority of accommodation is budget hotels rather than hostels. Of the lot, Bich Duyen is a solid choice.
