Thien Thao Hotel is clean, quiet and has excellent customer service. The breakfast (especially the bread) was our favorite way to start the day and everyone who works there is very nice and helpful. We had our wallet stolen with most of our cash and all our cards and they were very kind and did not charge us for the international calls we had to make to cancel our credit cards. Also everything is a 20 to 30 min walk away and cabs are only about 50,000 VND ($2-$3) so we didn't feel it was that bad being in District 3. And although we were here in Tet so places didn't start opening up until our last day ... there are a lot of food options nearby.
