Usually we set prices without taxes, fees and breakfast. You can see the grand total of all inclusive charge in the end of the bill. In case that you reserve extra bed, airport transfer service(s), the total number will present as the last total amount of all.

We are proud of ourselves for being in the Hospitality for over 6 years. During those years, we keep trying to innovate and improve our facilities, services and quality to be not only better but also in the top ranking of boutique hotels in Ho Chi Minh City. As rumor says, we are so unique, so quiet and quaint that it’s worth to try and unforgettable when leaving. Make a reservation with us, feel good vibes as you go through the entrance; spend your afternoon with a cup of coffee in our courtyart, evening in your soft bed and curl yourself up in warm blanket with your favorite book. That’s what we basically offer. 

We do serve breakfast and we can serve room service as well. It starts from 6.30 a.m to 10a.m. Our last order is until 9.30a.m. The room price will often include breakfast. For outside customers, we also set the same time for breakfast and it costs about 7usd nett / set. We serve both in-house and outside customers lunch and dinner. Our Bookmark Saigon Restaurant closes at 10p.m. Our last order is until 9.30p.m.

Yes, we do serve vegetarian food. Please kindly make a prior notice to our team (alcove@alcovehotel.com.vn) or Front Desk (fo@alcovehotel.com.vn) to prepare food for your breakfast. We shall transfer the notice to our Kitchen staff. We have normal vegetarian food (without any meat, fish, fish sauce or shellfish), and we can omit pork, eggs if you want Halal food. If you want special Halal food that has similar taste in your hometown, we can recommend a Restaurant near by our Hotel which is famous for Halal food.

Yes, it would be better if you have some cash in our own currency. It’s difficult for some local stores to use foreign currency, and not anywhere accept payment via credit cards. We know some of our notes are similar; therefore, we display them as below for your reference.

The official currency in Vietnam is dong or VND. Vietnam circulating money is range from 500 to 500,000. There are paper notes with a value of 500; 1,000; 2,000; 5,000 VND and then plastic ones valued at 10,000; 20,000; 50,000; 100,000; 200,000 and 500,000 VND. Kindly note that the VND 20,000 notes look only slightly different from the VND 500,000 ones; in the same case with VND 10,000 and VND 200,000. The only tip to differentiate them is based on their sizes and numbers.

Yes, we do exchange money, but we have some limited options to exchange to Vietnam dong: USD, AUD, SGD, GBP, CAD. You can also exchange money in currency exchange booths at Tan Son Nhat Int' Airport, or some money exchange stores in city center. With credit cards or ATM cards, you can withdraw only Vietnam dong. Our Receptionist will be happy to show you a lot of ATMs around our Hotel.

The traffic in Vietnam is best described as chaotic. Don’t be upset or confused why at red light some bikers still try to cross the road, or drive down the wrong side of the street and even use the sidewalk like an overflow laneTravelers come to Vietnam will have some exciting experiences when entering traffic, especially in big cities. And they have their secrets on how to cross the road in Vietnam: forget standard rules to cross the street, look at the vehicles that are heading towards you, just move slowly to cross it because no one will crash into you. However, for your own safety we still need to recommend you to follow the standard rules and keep some distance from any rude bikes. 

No, it's super easy. Our Receptionist can call you a taxi anytime. Besides, we have another travelling option that is using Grab car (a kind like Uber). You can install the app, and book a car/bike anytime. The advantages of this app is that you don’t need to speak Vietnamese, since the app will request to input pick up and drop off points for the drivers; and you know ride cost in advance so you can avoid being cheated. The only disadvantage is you’ll need 3G data if you are outside of free Wi-Fi area.

We understand some of you out there might be motor owners and would like to own a motorbike by yourself rather than choosing taxis in your trip. Please kindly contact us directly as we always care and want to ensure that you'll have safe drive during your stay. We're  happy to ask for some motorbike rental shop in town to ask for current-model automatic scooters for those who prefer a less 'difficult' option than a non-automatic one. You won't need a Vietnamese driver's license since any official driving license issued by your country of residence is fine.

If you’d like to reschedule your reservation, please let us know in advance also at least 72 hours prior to arrival.
