The staff of this hotel are so nice and helpful. Located in the heart of district one, steps away from many of the main attractions of HCMC. We often times could walk to where we wanted to go, which was very convenient. Area of the hotel was very safe. The breakfast is AMAZING, we were so impressed. Will definitely come... More

We booked 3nights and finaly stayed 4. The hotel location is very good, especially when you visit HCMC for the first time. The room/bathroom is clean. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Furniture is a little bit outdated.
