The hotel is situated in a side street in the Japanese District of Ho-Chi-Minh-City. All the major sights are in walking distance and there are a few very nice restaurants and cafés in proximity. The rooms are standard and very clean. The bathroom was very modern. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast did not meet fully our... More

The staff is really service minded. We were given a bigger room with an extra beg, without us asking for it and without being charged extra for it (we are 2 adults & a child). It is a good hotell for staying centrally in Ho Chi Minh. Close to Cathedral, operahouse, market & museum. Perfect to walk from this hotell... More

Early check in without any supplément. Really good and fast wifi/internet ( was able to upload a 500 meg files ) Breakfast is great. Got a cheaper hôtel for the first night but for a couple of euro you should really consider this hôtel as an option. Staff is really nice and gives really good advice that can help you... More

I have been coming to this hotel for several years and, in general, was satisfied with it. This time I was not given my requested room but was put into a room that reeked of cigarette smoke. They were unable to change me to a non-smoking room because they really don't have any, in spite of advertising that they do.

This hotel has a spectacular location, which would have been even better had we not visited during Tet, when many local establishments are closed. The rooms are very clean and spacious. The staff is attentive and friendly. For me, the best aspect of the hotel was the delicious breakfast, featuring local foods. I particularly enjoyed the preserved duck eggs...they were... More

Functional hotel with comfortable beds and good hot showers....good location for exploring the city. Very helpful staff and clean presentable rooms. Buffet breakfast was ok though not substantial. Sadly no view to speak of with one very small window.

This hotel was ok. It was clean enough and was fine to spend a few nights, but probably wouldn't go back. When we checked out they tried to charge us for washing and water that we hadn't used however we just told them that we didn't use either of the services and they quickly figured out we didn't so was...

We expected a high standard after experiencing another good hotel in HCMC earlier in our trip but considering what we paid this was a disappointing hotel. The room was very small and the both the room and bathroom need updating. The worst thing was that there was only a tiny window which you couldn't see out of or even raise... More

Great value for money. 3 of us stayed in a Family Room. Comfortable and clean. Everything a good hotel is. Yes, it is in a great location - District 1. Within walking distance to Parkson and Vincom Centre (for Mango Zara fans). And to Cho Ben Thanh market it is a comfortable 10-20min straight walk. We enjoyed out stay very... More
