upgraded to signature deluxe. feels like a 3 stars hotel. everything is like a 3 star except for the 4 star pricing. they have a policy of not bringing viet girls to the room after 10pm but of course you can sort of book another room saying you are staying separately. limited nice breakfast and great view.

We have just experienced 4 days in this supposed 4 star hotel. BEWARE-its not. Although a friendly welcome was received on the first day the rest was frustrating and disappointing. Perhaps a new manager who could whip the rest of the staff into action. My main issue was the non-existent gym and very very ordinary roof top pool. Broken chairs,... More

The hotel is in a great location within Saigon, an abundance of shops, markets, restaurants and landmarks nearby. The price and value for money is great and my personal favourite is the shower. After a long flight, these new age showers with steam sauna, lights, spa jets, various water heads and even a radio were my highlight haha

The view from the hotel window and from the outdoor pool on the the 17th floor provided great views of the city. The room itself was quite small although provided everything you desire, and the housekeeping was very frequent and welcoming. The free breakfast wasn't the best quality.

Very good hotel with reasonable prises. Room were quite small but very nice and clean. The bed was very good to sleep! Rooftop pool is also quite small but still spacious enough to cool down. Sunbeds were also great. Location were perfect - close everything. Would definitely stay in this hotel again.

A good modern style hotel in a busy central position. Comfortable hotel and rooms with standard layout. I had a single room with an extra large double bed, the view from my 6th floor window was a view across the roof tops, but the view from the roof top swimming pool is right across Saigon. Step outside and take your... More
