We have been staying at this hotel for about 10 days on and off. This is a 3 star hotel on the best street in town, Dong Khoi aka Catinat in colonial era. Most of the other hotels on this street are 4 and 5 star hotels. The room is fairly large, well equipped, with comfortable bedding. The bathroom is... More

Enjoyed staying here, the location was great with shops and spas nearby. Nothing fancy but clean and comfortable, the beds were good and I found it quiet. Nice quiet bar downstairs to have a drink before dinner after battling the traffic. I was very impressed with the buffet, food for everyone and very well cooked. There was very traditional Vietnamese... More

We stayed here on and off for about a month, while we toured around Vietnam. The staff were always very professional and smiling! Even at 3am they were happy to help bring our baggage out. Having a range of restuarants and shops on Dong Khoi street was a bonus as well. Very good stay thanks!!

We stayed there for one week. The rooms are out-dated but still okay. A/C available of course. The floor outside was sometimes a little bit noisy.The staff are friendly and the drinks and cakes in the restaurant are very delicious. Good value for money guys!

Great midrange hotel , some double rooms alittle tight with space but a five star Buffett breakfast available and exceptional customer service. Central location in city. Do not stay at this hotel if you are looking for a window view as most rooms look into building walls next door. The internet is free, fast and reliable . Hair dryers need... More

Don't bother with this hotel. The rooms have old carpet and furniture. The bed is comfortable enough but the whole hotel needs a renovation. It is located near all the designer stores and does not feel like Vietnam at all. I would choose another hotel in District 1 closer to the Ben Thang Market for better Vietnamese experience.
