This hotel is in a good location and very close to main shopping areas. We booked it knowing that it wasnt going to be luxurious. Rooms are clean. Bathroom is clean but toilet is noisy. We got two single beds instead of a double and they are VERY HARD beds. We were meant to have a kettle and tea in... More

I always look for hotels with character and this one sound promising. Sadly it failed to live up to its promise. Just as well wifi was free because it didn't work. When I explained I really needed it for keeping up with my business I was told to try again tomorrow. I found the staff to be rude and uncooperative.... More

Only stayed one night because I was looking for a less expensive option. Sure got what I paid for, while the location is good the hotel quality is average, room features need updating and buffet breakfast was ordinary. It was comfortable enough for a 1 night stay but not what I would recommend if you're on vacation.

This hotel had once been a very nice hotel. It is crying out to be renovated. We used the swimming pool next door for free. Great tour desk - we had a fantastic guide for 2 days. On the plus side it had a massive room and is in a great location. On the negative side, breakfast was poor and... More

Hotel is not modern, but is it clean and tidy. It has a good river view and the city center (for example opera house) is near - just 5 minutes walking distance. Hotel has a big rooms and nice service. There are some other facilities as massaga (SPA center in a good price) and travel agencly in this hotel.

Fairly well located hotel in District 1, but that's about it. Breaksfast was average, while the room was clean it was in need of some serious updating. The grand old building has so much potential, but just needs someone to fix it up. Luckily we were only staying the one night.

We stayed for one night just to get to the airport the following morning. For that purpose the hotel is ideally located - about 15 minutes by cab. Location wise it's good for the main attractions as well. It is on a busy road, however our room was on the back of the hotel with no window, so we never... More

I have stayed in this hotel 3 times in the past 12 months (in/out via Saigon, ranging from 1-3 nights), and note a rapid decline in all aspects. Had to ask for tea/coffee facilities in the room, bed linen had holes, water pressure inadequate, safety deposit box not working, no plug for sink (one could not be located in entire... More
