This hotel is tucked away from the main area and in not such a great street, which is a shame because the hotel is of good quality. We booked a deluxe river view room and stayed on two occasions in January, one for one night and one for three nights. The first stay was great. The second not so. Despite... More

I'm really confused by the star ratings in Vietnam. We have stayed in a few 4 * and they were not as nice as this place. It was a little walk to see the sights, but then you get to see more of the city. Can not recommend the spa more.... Really lovely girls that work there, some don't speak... More

We only spent two days in Saigon and had a "superior" room at Aquari Hotel. The hotel looks modern with a nice, modern and spacious lobby. Front-desk staff was helpful. Our room was pretty standard but very clean. The size of the room was fine for two people and the bed was "super king size". The bathroom was also comfortable... More

Hotel is walking distance to major tourist attractions and restaurants and bars. Our room was very modern, spacious and clean. The breakfast is good. It's more a 4 star hotel. Value for money. Would stay here again.

Have nothing but good things to say about the Aquari. Picked up at the airport by super-friendly Dat. I know, a taxi would have been less expensive but there's something about being met. Informative and quick trip to the hotel. Booked into perfect room for 2 nights overlooking the River. Moving for next three nights to a stunning city view... More

The reviews of this hotel read well..........perhaps I'm hard to please. Pros - very clean and,well located. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to Benh Thanh Market but I appreciated being out of the chaos that is around the market area. The room had the biggest bed I've seen and sooooooooooooo incredibly comfortable, unlike hard Vietnamese beds I have read... More

Very nice stay, thank you. Had a top floor river view. Bright clean and airy. Excellent black out curtains! Used the gym a couple of times, again clean and airy, new equipment. Breakfast was good, the only thing I was disappointed with was the chicken curry (not a lot really). Otherwise the breakfast was well suited to Asian and European.... More

The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of District 1. Walking distance to the opera house, Vincom Center, Bitexco Financial Tower, and other shops. Lots of great restaurants in the vicinity as well. The room and bathroom were very clean. Service was exceptional. No tub in the room; just a shower, which was good enough for me since I'm... More
