The hotel was extremely nice. Although not in the popular district 1 they run a shuttle bus round that area for guests. The outside pool is a gem ! The only problem we had was the smell from the drain in the evening. It was apparently flushed & did improve. We were offered another room but did not want to... More

Staying at this hotel was worth it. We experienced being pampered and accommodated very well. Their buffet breakfast is good. They also have hospitable staff. All your needs/requests were attended immediately. It has big and clean room. Book at this hotel when you visit Ho Chi Minh City :)

It's great to be able to return to a hotel and have it continue to meet your expectations. The service is first rate, with the front office staff always prepared to go the extra yard to make your stay enjoyable. This is an older establishment and I really like the wide corridors and ample room size. You'd pay much more... More

Clean large room - staff are great. Roof top pool and full gym sauna etc THE best breakfast choice! Just a short cab to the CBD or just walk! Nothing outstanding, just simple, easy. Oh, and breakfast !!

I am typing this while still checked. Here in HCMC for business, for a 3 day conference. The hotel itself is large, with a large lobby and fast elevators. Wifi is free and can be accessed anywhere in the hotel. Speed is relatively good. Elevators are fast and seems to be always available. Hotel staff are English-speaking and are attentive... More

We stayed in one of the suites on the 10th floor, and were blown away when we stepped in. Huge living room and bedroom, beautiful bathroom, and windows on all sides which command views of the city. Beds are extremely comfortable with a full selection of pillows available. Staff are very helpful. The executive floors (10th & 11th) have access... More

We spent three nights in this hotel. The hotel has a great foyer, a nice wine bar in the foyer and a large buffet restaurant. We upgraded to a corner room which meant a huge room and balcony - well worth the cost. Plenty of storage and very comfortable bed. We also spent time at the pool, which was good,... More
