We had a reservation to stay in this hotel in Oct 2014 that was made in Feb 2014 on a recommendation from a friend. We had train tickets that were to be delivered to the hotel but we were contacted by the train company the night before we were due to fly out of Australia to advise us that they... More

We stayed here for 3D & 2N, just for a short and budget trip. I think it is more than 30minutes away from the airport, but nearer to some historical/landmarks in Ho Chi Minh City. We were able to visit The Notre Dame Cathedral, Central Post Office, pagodas and others by foot =) However, the area is a bit congested.... More

This Hotel was heights... We had pre-booked it before 1 month of travel for 3 rooms on twin sharing basis. Its obvious that wen u book 3 rooms together, then its generally wither family or friends who are travelling together. So its the responsibility of the hotel to give all the 3 rooms either next to each other or at... More

The hotel was the last one on a fantastic trip through Vietnam. So what a disappointment when we arrived on 29th June - the hotel was changing hands on 1 July and the new owners were already dismantling the hotel - place was noisy, one lift decommissioned for builders, stairwells full of dust. At 7am the hammering started, one of... More

Stayed in the sapphire for 1 night in may, found it very good. The rooms are clean and well equipped, although the beds are a little firmer than i like. Breakfast is buffet style and is plentiful, which could have been slightly warmer. Staff on front desk very accomodating, we left our travel adaptor in a previous hotel so reception... More

We read most of the reviews, but I have to say we were pretty disappointed! The rooms were clean, but the bed was like sleeping on a cement floor, it was almost unbearable! The concierge were so lovely & friendly, but the reception & bar staff were the complete opposite, we couldn't get any help with transfers or help and... More

Nice hotel, walking distance to all the hot spots in district1. And also walking distance to backpacker area. The rooms are generally nice, although there is many different rooms. The place is clean, the wifi is a bit slow, many rooms have jacuzzi bath tub and a pc on the desk! The location is good enough. There is plenty of... More

We stayed for five nights. This boutique hotel is in a convenient location - walking distance to Bin Tanh market, the Central park and hundreds of restaurants. The staff were always helpful and cheerful. The room was very good - on the small side, but always clean and tidy - with bottles of water replenished and excellent air conditioning. The... More

From arrival to booking tours, recommending places to visit to money changing, changing of allocated room to housekeeping - excellent. Just know that the rooms seem old, but nonetheless clean. And that noise can be heard from the corridor.
