This hotel is situated close to airport and exhibitioncenter. Staff is doing what ever you can imagine to make your stay convenient. Free drinks, free airport pick up by taxi, tips for town visits, they even help you crossing the street to the restaurant. Hotel is a bit old but clean. Breakfast fine. Half an our by taxi to downtown.

After a long flight from Europe we wanted a hotel near the airport before flyng to Hanoi to begin a two week tour. Emailed the hotel before departure to arrange their shuttle service. On arrival there was someone waiting for us and it was a quick transfer to the hotel. Check in was very quick and efficient and we were... More

I've been blocked in HCMC then I tried this hotel ... value for mont is good, you are closer to the airport than to district 1, then make sense if you are in transit. Rooms are spacious, I appreciated complimentary shuttle at 4,30 AM; at that time breakfast was not available but they gave us a box without asking.

The place was very nice and staff were very friendly. Buffet breakfast the next morning was delicious. Very happy with this hotel for a short stay, it's pretty quiet too away from the hustle and bustle.

Stayed here one night only courtesy of Vietnam Airlines after an unexpected flight delay. We had no idea where we would be dropped off but found this hotel to be quite pleasant. No problems with the comfort of the beds and the double glazed windows gave us a peaceful nights sleep. Breakfast was adequate without being great and staff were... More

10 - 15 min to airport, they have a free shuttle. spent one night. Quiet, comfortable, immaculate. Astounding friendly service. Just what you would expect from a business hotel (thwough we were tourists). We were tired and didn't feel like going out for dinner. Stumbled into their buffet (0nlly 220,000 dong!). Don't let the concept of a 'hotel' buffet put... More

This hotel basically takes over a whole block with different services in different buildings so very confusing to start. We wanted a massage and got a price in room of 200 dong (11 dollars) but when we went over we were told its 220 PLUS 110 tip.. On principle that's totally wrong !! We have been tipping almost everywhere when... More

After experiencing a flight delay which kept me from coming to my home country on time it was a pleasant surprise to find accommodation for the night at this hotel. While the price is expensive for Vietnamese hotels it is very reasonable by Western standards. A good buffet breakfast was included in the tariff and the friendly staff let me... More
