This was a good choice for us for our four night stay in the city. The staff were welcoming and efficient, the room was everything we expected, I.e. clean, quiet and comfortable. Each morning we were able to choose from a simple breakfast menu in the rooftop garden restaurant/bar. Given the hotel's location we were able to walk to most... More

I have lived in Vietnam for ten years in seven different houses. Several of these houses had plumbing that was not properly installed and thus caused bathrooms or entire houses to stink at times for seemingly no reason. Further research cased me to learn about P-Traps, exhaust vents, and other basic plumbing design. This hotel unfortunately was built without proper... More

Loved this place.warm and friendly in a brilliant location. Topped off by a great roof garden for meals. Rooms very stylish and pleasant.found the location to be an easy walk to many things and near the majestic Saigon River. Also near many of the major historic parts of Saigon.

We arrived in a tropical rain shower tired & disorientated from a long flight from the UK. The location is magical & almost immediately we were revived and immersed in Vietnam. Our room had a deck straight onto the river - we could have watched for hours the foliage rapidly passing by (interchanging direction with the tide). Breakfast a real... More

What a lovely review and the only negative is that I did not get the chance to actually welcome you to our small hotel and to have a chat. Maybe your back in the UK now, caught up in daily life, but hope a flame burns that will lure you back to SE Asia and hopefully to SGR Hotel again. More

Whilst I have stayed in many hotels in SE Asia, this hotel is by far my favorite.WeI stayed in the front balcony rooms and found them perfect. They are clean, well equipped and modern. Having a table and chairs on the balcony was the finishing touch that many hotels fail to provide. The owners and all staff were extremely helpful,... More

Of course I remember you when you stayed here with your son and have to say I am sure you would bring a sense of fun and warmth to any where you stayed, as you were both wonderful people to have to stay. Easy to forget that you were paying guests as it seemed more that you were old friends.... More

Appreciate very much you taking the time to write your kind review, but felt I may need to offer a belated apology re your breakfast options. All rooms are provided with a standard breakfast, mostly in order to keep room prices at a more affordable level, but also because with the majority of our guest, having a simple good quality...

I'll never stay anywhere else when I'm looking for a hotel in HCMC. Friendly staff, great location (right in the heart of District 1 - "Downtown" - but away from the traffic.

I've visited Ho Chi Minh City many time and this was the best hotel I've stayed in while visiting. The staff was friendly and always helpful. The extra charge for being met at the airport was worth it. It's in a good neighborhood, close to shopping and important sights, but not in the middle of it all. The room was... More
