Wonderful hotel - staff are very friendly and attentive. Pool was lovely - great to have a pool bar just to relax at. Pick-up at airport was another great plus for us - considering we were late arriving and the driver had to wait over an hour for us. The breakfast was lovely - one of the best buffet breakfasts...

We were picked up from the airport in very flash BMW and had cold water waiting for us in the car. From the moment we arrived at hotel equatorial the service has been... More

We stayed here for 2 nights after 5 weeks travelling in Europe. Ho Chi Minh City is a very busy place so it was nice to be able to retreat, chill and have some much needed R&R, we had everything we needed in this hotel. Reception & concierge were very helpful & professional, giving good tourist information. Cocktails & eating... More

Whilst located a short distance from the city centre, this was a marvellous place to spend our 3 days in Ho Chi Minh City. Staff who remember your name and room number. Vouchers for dining and massage discounts during your stay. Well appointed rooms. Large pool with swim up bar and happy hour. Excellent buffet breakfast with Asian and Western... More

Have now stayed at Equatorial a number of times. This is an outstanding hotel and well worth considering if you are visiting HCM City. While it is a little away from the main attractions, it is excellent value for money. The service is outstanding - reception, concierge, room service, and restaurants. If you are lucky enough to have Cam Van... More

Our group of 5 have just had the pleasure of spending time at this magnificent hotel. The rooms were very comfortable, probably the best beds we slept in in our three weeks away. The staff could not be faulted, always cheerful and eager to be of assistance. The food is excellent and the presentation just adds that little bit of... More

I must admit I am a fan of the executive club and it may not be everyones preference, it is more expensive than just the room, but when you take a look at what deal is offered, it may well be a good value option. Hotel Equatorial executive club is superb; upon arrival we were escorted to the 11th floor... More
