We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The breakfast is on the top floor with a beautiful view of HCMC. The location is excellent as it is just minutes from Ben Thanh market and also in an area that is wonderful to walk around in day or night. The service is great as everyone is very friendly and accommodating.... More

Great location within walking distance to all the good spots (especially the markets). The shower was insane, felt like I was in a time machine, however the room was comfortable and clean. Enjoyed our stay at this hotel.

Wifi although each floor has a different SID. Parking for scooters, tour desk.. However the attitude, some missing detail in... More

This hotel is located on District 1, where the central of tourist area placed. It's surrounded by many local shops along the street, not only for culinary place, but also fashion item. We could just walk to reach the famous Ben Thanh Market. I booked this hotel from Agoda, and it seems the only 4 stars hotel at the Ben... More

This central hotel is walking distance to the markets, great eating places, superb Jolene Spa massage place, parks and tourist icons. Best part is the rooftop pool - refreshing to cool down before heading out in the evening. Friendly helpful staff.

Restaurant was at the top of the hotel so gave excellent views of Saigon. The small pool was on the floor below the restaurant so again... More

Stay was okay. I think it's absurd to consider a 6yr old child an adult so you can charge for more money. My shower looked outdated compared to my siblings rooms. The grout looked dirty and not white anymore. I was concerned about touching the tiles. I had turned down the 7USD upgrade for a bigger bed that agoda had... More
