I stayed here for a week on business, arranged by a Vietnamese colleague who stays here frequently. My corner room on the 5th floor had a city view, comfy bed, modern bathroom with shower, ample storage and a nice desk with outlets to charge my stuff. I enjoyed having breakfast with a view of life unfolding on the quiet street... More

A little gem of a hotel. Great, friendly staff. Clean, quiet, comfortable rooms. Decent breakfast buffet. This boutique hotel is located close (5-7 min walk) to the Opera House and many wonderful eating spots (The Refinery is one of them + Ciao Bella nearby). Good place.

Quiet hotels in HCMMC can be hard to find, the Aquari is in District 1 and bear everything but it's on a street that is not very busy and it's quiet. I've stayed here twice and both time is a 'sunrise deluxe' room facing the street. They are very spacious and the condition of everything in the room is excellent.... More

Our travel company chose the Aquari as part of a group tour but, as we booked an extra night directly, we feel able to comment.objectively. It is, as many have commented, primarily a downtown business hotel but we do not understand the negative comments about the location - it was quite close enough to the centre for us. We arrived...

This hotel was in a good location and had friendly staff but that is probably the only plus. the breakfast was very average, bacon that had no taste at all and lukewarm coffee. The rooms reek of cigarette smoke so obviously people are smoking in the rooms. We stayed here because we were on a tour but would not have... More

Phenomenal. I could not have made a better choice of hotel! The staff was professional, but what is most remarkable, extremely kind. My sister and I checked in and were warmly received. The front desk personnel and bellman all seemed to go above and beyond to show us kindness and make us feel as comfortable as possible. From sending off... More

Another excellent stay in Vietnam. We had four excellent stays. In Ho Chi Minh the prices are more expensive and so also the hotel was much more expensive (the transfer from the airport was quite expensive). The location is good even though not in the real centre but this may be also an advantage. The breakfast was good and the... More

The Hotel is quite new and in the heart of District 1. Special the Mini Suites in the upper floors with small whirl pool gives you a better feeling with more space for a reasonable price. Ask for river view . If you look for the night life of HCMC the famous Disco Apacolypse is very near to the hotel,... More

This hotel offers rooms at a very reasonable price in the center of tourist area. As far as I'm concerned, most of guests who usually stay there are businessmen, so ambiance is rather calm. Breakfast is good, staff is very accommodating. On our previous stay, we booked River View Deluxe -- the room was perfect for the price, modern and... More
