I have stayed eleven times in this hotel and found the location ideal for shopping cafes and transport , one of the best breakfasts I have had. I always request the rear rooms as they have no noise and quite spacious, this is not a five star hotel more like a three but good value for money. I have found... More

Stayed in this hotel couple of times. The last stay was on March. Stayed there for more than 1 month. The location is in Pham Ngu Lao where lots of foreigner, local restaurants and bars nearby. From the airport, it cost around 150k VND by using taxi. The hotel room itself was good. Not big, but not small as well.... More

I go to Ho Chi Minh City for work and have stayed in many hotels here. This was by far one of my worse experience. It was so bad I checked out after my first night despite booking this hotel for 9 nights. I lost my money because it was a non-refundable rate. It did not matter because I could... More

This hotel was the starting point for a tour I joined. At the last minute I needed to book an extra night prior to the tour, this request was accommodated, without the need to change rooms midway through: with a smile, thank you! The room itself was clean, the bed was comfy and the aircon was good. Nearby there was... More

I was disappointed after reviewing this hotel on trip advisor. The room was dirty, the carpet hadn't been vacuumed in awhile - old bits of food under the bed, the walls were filthy, as were the fabric covered chairs. Stains on the sheets. I have high expectations of cleanliness though. Smelt of mold in the room quite strongly and there... More

I stayed in this hotel for two nights with a group. The hotel was quite noisy especially if your by the elevator and the facing the street. Wifi was the best so far in all the places we have stayed. Walking distance to many things and a short 20 min ride to the airport. Breakfast was ok.

Right in the busy District 1, this beautiful hotel is a gem. Quiet and clean from the moment you walk in, the rooms are comfortable and well equipped. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. But the best is the buffet breakfast: amazing! Quality and variety, enough to keep you going for a few hours. Highly recommend this place. Note: no... More

We stayed here 3 nights to explore HCMC. It was great value at just $55 a night. The staff are very helpful, and it is very clean and tidy. It's somewhere between 3.5 and 4 star by Australian standards. Breakfast is of a very good standard, though the hotel and breakfast can get very busy. Centrally located close to the... More
