This Hotel according to Trip Advisor reviews was far from the city. No! It really depends on where you want to go. A particular restaurant? Shops? It is comfortable, clean and Friendly staff, special mention to Mr Long the limo drive a man you would want to drive you in HCM City. Upgrade to a Club Room enjoy the Happy... More

Having read a number of reviews before going we were very pleasantly surprised with this very good hotel. It is certainly worthwhile to spend the relatively little extra for a room on the club floor. The benefits that come with that are excellent (the complimentary drinks and food nightly, the discounts to hotel facilities and free wifi in room to... More

Stayed at this Hotel at the end of our Vietnam holiday and glad it was the end and not the beginning. It appears very smart and trendy in the downstairs foyer but we where in the Club rooms and shocked that paying for an upgrade into a club room only bought us a very small room that was old and...

We had a couple of nights here en route to Hon Tre Island. The staff were really great, the room was great too. We were in the club section and that was a real bonus. It is our third time to HCMC City and it's a fascinating place. Yes, the Equatorial is not right in the middle of District One,... More

I arrived in HCMC today. I was met by a warm cloak of air and a sweet and typically asian scent which I can never quite pinpoint but which makes me feel instantly at home. More so at home then when i am at home, ironically. From the Equatorial i ventured into town on the Shuttle and looked around one... More

Staff were lovely, very helpful and informative. Check in was easy and quick. Hotel facilities were excellent. The rooms were spacious, clean and well appointed, We didn't use the pool but... More

Have just spent the last 3 nights here, a little out of the city centre but is an excellent base for a short visit to HCMC ( Saigon). Staff very welcoming and cannot do enough for you. The rooms are excellent, very good bathrooms and toiletries. Swimming pool lovely though changing facilities at poolside limited. Chit Chat Cafe very good.

Cannot fault the hotel at all. Good sized rooms, great pool, lots to choose from for breakfast, very friendly staff. Only downside is the location. Yes, it is only a couple of dollars in a taxi to the centre, but it would have been nice to wander around the locale of the hotel.

Very helpful courteous staff, amazing buffet and restaurant! Nicely located and the rooms were very comfotable. The shuttle bus service every two hours was ideal.Thanks to all concerned, we would certainly come back again.

After long flight we were greeted by hotel driver in air conditioned bus with bottled water and straight to smooth check in. Staff extra friendly and did anything they could to help. Rooms spacious and clean, pool and spa areas clean. Buffet breakfast second to none. Also I left camera on bus, told concierge, by the time we were back... More
