We did not feel expected on arrival and the hotel had to put in some changes in the rooms before we settled in. The room we got wasn't too big but being a budget hotel we were okay with it. The hotel is quite small, though we soon realized this is pretty common in Vietnam. When we finally settled, the... More

I and my partner flew in on the 7 Febuary 16. We had booked a delux room for 1 week. The receptions decor was better than expected for a 3 star so promised more in terms of which room we would get. The receptionist needed a course in how to smile and speak to people as her demeaner was less... More

No Service (no respond to our e-mails upfront) Unfriendly reception staff More than 10 Cockroaches in our room Noise from the elevator all night long For more than USD 50 per night you can get much better hotels in the same area in HCMC. I would not recommend to book here.

My family and I had a 3D2N stay in A&EM. The rooms are great and the wifi is very strong. However, we encountered very bad customer service during our stay. My family and I booked 4 normal rooms at least a month before our travel date. Upon arrival we were told that there were insufficient normal rooms and we were... More

The room was very adequate. Better lighting in bathroom would be welcome and improved shower set up. Was great to find a computer in our room, which allowed us to advise family we had arrived safe and sound. We were very close to the Ben Thanh market and walking distance of several other interesting sites. A real experience crossing the... More

So the best part about this hotel is its location: it's less than 2 blocks from Ben Thanh and surrounded by lots of other great places for tourists. The concierge was helpful with setting up a day trip and showing the options if you had an idea what you wanted to do. The hotel room itself was only ok; it... More

Rooms were clean and well appointed. Service at the reception was good and friendly and with some English skills Breakfast was just ok - no western food but all was hot and wholesome. Laundry a problem as it done away from the Hotel. Guest friendly and courteous.

Having stayed at other A & EM hotels, we were quite confident all would be OK. How wrong I was. Having arrived from a 12 hr travel period, I was told the only room available was the V.I.P room. From the moment the light went on it was chaos. I killed at least 25 Cockroaches that were everywhere in the... More

The location was great, rooms were good value, breakfast included, although the desk staff were not that helpful. There was one guy that went out of his way, but most others were courteous but said they couldn't help or didn't know... The most disappointing part was that although there are signs asking not to have prostitutes in the rooms the... More
