Conveniently located. Basic breakfast, nothing fancy. Very slippery shower floor. The rooms were clean, the elevator worked, and the staff was very helpful when needing directions. We were traveling with a tour group, but still depended on the hotel staff for assistance when the leader was unavailable. They never failed us.

We were warned about leaving valuables in the room so don't do it. Also there are purse snatchers on the streets so you must be careful all over this beautiful city. As for the hotel ,the carpet needs to be updated and the elegance is either gone or never was here. The rooms are quite comfortable and reasonable. Location is... More

We had an AWFUL time at this hotel. The safety deposit box in our room was broken and then the staff went through our bags while we were out and stole money from our luggage!! The management was no help, even though they acknowledged their staff STOLE from us!!! Do not go here. Never.

The hotel is ideally located in distrist 1 close to nightlife but enough away that its nice and quiet, room was nice and clean and staff were nice. Dont buy any tours from tour desk/reception they really rip you off. All there tours are at least triple the price of all the other tour agencies in town!

The hotel location is great (provided that you'd like a place a bit away from the busy Pham Ngu Lao or the Backpacker's District). The room that we had everything we expected. It was clean, had a cabinet, and a refrigerator. The bathroom was clean, toilet has a bidet and have hot and cold showers. Breakfast is something to look... More
