This hotel was our first accommodation on our first trip to Viet Nam. We were very happy with the room and the service. We were particularly impressed with the breakfast buffet. It was one of the best we had ever seen. There were some upgrade works going on at the time of our stay which did not bother us and... More

This hotel is definitely not 5 star. We visited more than 6 hotels during our travels in Vietnam and this is definitely on the bottom of our list. It's not a bad hotel. It's just little things that make it lacking the feel of a good hotel. We booked into a VIP room on the ninth floor the room had... More

This is a large modern hotel with all the comforts you would expect. The staff are helpful and friendly and the location is one of the best in the city. There are refurbishment works going on at the moment which are slightly inconvenient (e.g. some of the lifts don't go to the ground floor) but it's not a bit problem.
