Phan Lan 2 Hotel

Our rating:

Formerly known as Phan Lan 2 Guesthouse, the exterior of Phan Lan 2 Hotel is rather drab but the rooms are decently sized, well appointed and in fair condition.

Like most of the budget hotels in Pham Ngu Lao, there’s no lift. Lower rooms are more vulnerable to street noise, but prepare for a workout to reach higher levels, especially if you land a room on the very top (fifth floor). The entry level room is small and windowless, ideal only for one. Paying a few dollars more will garner a room with a window and natural light.

Rooms have been jazzed up with some wallpaper and bed runners, and come with a flatscreen TV, WiFi, mini fridge, clean white linens, air-con and some slightly dated though perfectly fine furniture like a desk and bedside table. Bathrooms are well-lit function over fashion affairs. Breakfast is included in the rate.

Phan Lan 2 Hotel is located on the alley of 283 Pham Ngu Lao, which runs between Pham Ngu Lao and Do Quang Dau St, in the western side of the tourist hub. Alley 283 is fairly sleepy compared to the backpacker-centric alleys off of Bui Vien St (on the eastern side near the main intersection) which are a densely packed mix of accommodation and tourist eateries. It’s mainly full of budget hotels but Phan Lan 2 rises to the top.

This hotel won’t knock your socks off and there’s no views like the new crop of pricier boutique hotels (Duc Vuong, C-Central De Tham) but it is clean and in a location that is walking distance to the travel agents, bars and restaurants.
