There is nothing to dislike about this hotel . The rooms are clean and are of an adequate size and standard for Asia . The staff are friendly and helpful. The door man even stops the notorious Saigon traffic when he sees you coming . Breakfast buffet caters for everyone's taste and is quiet extensive . Much better than expected... More

Stay here are your own risk. The staff clearly target westerners with their scams and will rob you blind. This is not a safe place to stay!! Basically robbed by the front of house at the Spa. It was a terrible service and the staff dress like they are going to deliver a happy ending. If you book to have... More

The central hotel I exactly that - central to all the best things to see in Ho Chi Min. We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a tour. Rooms a good size, clean and comfortable. However our shower was lukewarm on each occasion we used it. Breakfast choice was good - western and local noodles and dimsum. Although... More

We stayed in this hotel on a guided tour and it was clean and staff helpful. Only fault we had was as there were three adults in this room they gave a extra bed. Which there is nothing wrong with that only it was way to hard and you couldn't sleep on it( like it to a concrete slab). In... More

Room is extremely small compare to all the hotels in Ho Chi Minh that I had previously stayed. Room is dark - bad lighting layout. Despite a higher class room in the hotel (signature), no slippers in the room - have to ask for it to deliver. Have to ask for maintenance to fix the safe deposit box (change batteries),... More

The few drawbacks ie smallish sized rooms and smelly lift area were offset by the location . All major attractions are within an easy walk so there wasn't the hassle of getting transport around town. There is also a convenience store and bank next door . I found Staff to be friendly and helpful.

Truly, we thought this place was awful. Our room was tiny, the staff were not friendly at all, it STUNK every day on the top floor as you arrived for breakfast, and also stunk at the swimming pool like they had open dustbins right near it. The staff cleaned kitchenware and carpets from the lift on the ground a metre... More

We chose this hotel because of the roof top pool and location, and were not disapointed. We like to be able to have a cooling swim after a hot day out, so the pool served its purpose. The location was great, as it was very close to the Ben Thanh market, with lots of places where to eat. There was... More

The hotel is clean and nice rooms for the price. It has a central location and walking distans to a loot of good restaurants. But the Spa is horrible and the staff there so rude. There is so many other good places in the city that gives a good massage and treat you nice. Go there instead!
