My wife and I have stayed in some of the best hotels around the world so I believe I can talk with some authority. The place was fantastic and inexpensive. A hint though - upgrade to Club. It's worth the extra few dollars. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. They are well trained and very helpful. The restaurant... More

This hotel is suited for business people, for (family) holiday we would advice to look for a hotel at the center. Around the hotel there is not much to do and only a few restaurants (not recommendable if you care about hygiene) on walking distance. The hotel is spacious and clean, nothing to comment on that. Equatorial is no 4... More

everything is above average inside the hotel. Am sure the hotel will be doing very well if it is located in District 1 which is the heart of the city.

The bed in the room was great, I had a twin but the single beds were like a double beds. The hotel is about 20 to 30 mins from... More

This is a very large and impressive hotel, with friendly staff- we stayed 2 nights as part of a deals.com voucher we had (5 nights in a resort in Danang and 2 nights here in HCMC so we had the room at a reduced price to what you would pay normally to stay here). Our room was comfortable and clean... More

The downstairs buffet was also gorgeous - chocolate fountain and all you can eat divine food for Sunday lunch - I would not hesitate... More

We stayed at the end of February and, despite having travelled extensively, have to say that this was one of the nicest hotels that we have ever stayed in. The pool was wonderful, almost as big as a typical English leisure centre pool at 24 metres, and it was never too busy to be able to do lengths. The breakfast... More

The lobby was beautiful and the breakfast buffet was excellent. The location was nearby many shops and food stalls. The taxis did not have a hard time finding the location. We did have a bit of a problem with the shower temperature. It was very difficult to get anything between boiling hot and cold. Also we were looking forward to... More
