I have stayed in this for 4 nights in August 2014. I have found no true weak points but it may have to be taken into account that I got a special deal since I was there for a conference (roughly 50 USD/night including breakfast). I was in a room on the first floor and can say that what some... More

Location is great, just across the street from Sheraton. It's really only a decent, 'retro', place to just rest, sleep and shower, and not be spending much time in the hotel, don't anyway, lots more to do around it's super prime central area. Don't expect smiling faces or friendly staff, especially at the reception. Choose it only just for LOCATION.... More

Located in district one which is where all the shopping and historical sites are located. Great location to walk to all the sites. The hotel rooms were spacious and clean. But the air conditioner ever really got the room cool. The hallways is open to the outside so as soon as you went outside your room into the hallways it... More

Good staff and good location. Plenty of things to do close by. The markets are close by to checkout. There are plenty of clubs and massage places within walking distance. Rates where fair. Can recommend to most general travellers. I would definitely return to Ho Chi Minh and stay here.

Nice, clean hotel and the brekky buffet was pretty nice! Everything was clean and had a lot of natural light. Pretty close to everything and the staff were quite nice. A bit too uptight about who you can bring into your hotel room though. Only gripe was the water from the taps in the bathroom was yellow. Kinda off-putting since... More

Here, you could get good accommodation at a low rent. The hotel located in downtown. And the room is clear, comfortable, good soundproofing, you can sleep well without noise. But there do not have cable, use wifi, sometimes wifi is very slow.

They watch you like a hog. They only allow 2 people per a room. If you have extra person, you will be charged expensive rate. This is not a visitor's friendly hotel. Your guest(s) will be questioned in and out, plus the hotel will keep your guests' IDs until they leave. Not all staff members are friendly. You have to... More

Stayed here three nights on business as my regular hotel was not available. I was pleasantly surprised as the place was clean, quiet and very inexpensive. The location is great and the many restaurant options make this a great area in which to stay. If you want to pay very little and be the best area for tourists, this is... More
