When I booked a 4 star hotel I expected a 4 star hotel and not something from the 80s. Located in the heart of Saigon, the location is the only plus. The bed was hard, The shower barely spat out water, the view didn't exist as it was a wall, the gym facilities make not even worthy to be called... More

The location of the hotel is ideal for the tourist. The action in the evening is just on the streets in front of the hotel. The staff was friendly (even though didn't always give the right answers...). The rooms were a little updated, but clean. The breakfast was quite good, omelettes were made on the spot and the overall selection... More

This is a 2.5 star hotel not 4, don't let them fool you. I give this one star because of the location, otherwise it's zero star. Bathroom is a hazard. The bathtub is >10 year old and super small and awkward. The decor is stuck in 1980 when Vietnam just opened its door. The swimming pool is a ugly. Gym... More

We booked one night, and we booked the Premium Deluxe Double. When we arrived, surprise ! it's actually 2 single bed joint. The room is big and clean but the mattress was really bad quality, we had a bad night. the bathtub was dirty. the good points were the breakfast and the location.

We stayed in a premium delux room for 5 nights in May, 2015. The hotel is in a fantastic location, close to all major attractions. The street the hotel is on, Nguyen Hue turns into a walking street at night and had a great atmosphere. The room was spacious with a huge double bed! We had issues with the toilet... More

We found this on the Internet. It is not the cheapest choice in Ho chi minh, but a great alternative. It is near the market, town hall, shopping street and it is a quiet area. No noise from traffic or other things. Wifi are ok and the food is excellent. They also have a swimminpool that is open till 09... More

We stopped by here on a hot midday afternoon to escape the heat. Very comfortable seating and a nice view by the window. They advertisea set lunch from 11am to 14 pm which looks likea very good deal, for around 95,000. We planned to come, but haven't made it back as it's a bit far from our hotel.

Stayed 5 nights in May 2015 using one double room and one family room. The hotel is located in a central position in Saigon, actually on the Duong Nguyen Hue which runs from the Saigon River to the old colonial building which now houses the Communist Party Committee. This street is now a grand boulevarde and I would imagine the... More

Upon check in, they required certain documents. This is to be expected, but when they asked me to go to the business center and print them myself, I was a bit shocked. A supposed "4 Star" hotel, should offer to print them for you. When I arrived in my room, there was a window that literally faced a metal fence... More
