I love this hotel because they have a BIG windows and a nice sized balcony. Now, if you are looking for a 5 stars hotel, this is NOT the one for you. But if you're looking for an expensive hotel with a nice roomy feel with balcony overlooking the park - look no further. Manage your expectations and you will... More

This was my 4th visit to the Le le and it was nice to meet the staff again. The booking process is very easy and the emails are replied to promptly. We reserved 4 rooms and requested the front '01' rooms as we like the view over Pham ngu lau and the park. One of the higher rooms were not... More

The staff was not friendly and not helpful. Mainly is to get you a room and that's it. The actual room compared to the "professional photos" is not accurate. It is older in the actual room. Not recommended.

I stayed at the hotel for 4days. ALL staffs were amazing - friendly and helpful. I was a little reluctant on handing my passport at the "secure cabinet" at the reception. However the receptionist took good care of all the passports for the hotel stayers. The shower was fine (although I didn't know how to work the shower at first),... More

Arrived in HCMC late and we couldn't find an available room anywhere and ended up here. Paid $35/night for a dirty room, mouldy, cold shower and view to nowhere. Breakfast was so unappealing that we left to find food somewhere else. We found a new hotel the next day, but found that due to a 'broken' EFTPOS machine, they ran... More

We landed around midnight in Ho Chi Minh and upon arrival at the hotel, they told us a guest had injured himself and they had no rooms so they diverted us to a different hotel. It was late, we didn't speak the local language and had come off 24 hrs of travel. It turns out this is a common BAIT... More

I will start with the cons and then the pros. WARNING: Watch out, the tours they sell aren't from the company they say they belong to (see below) After staying two nights we went to the Mekong delta for 1 night, requesting one more night directly to the lady in the front desk. When we came back they had overbooked... More

I'm a group of visitor to this hotel on December 2013. I had no complaint from them on any problems only the low pressure shower at the 10th floor. There are variety of food for breakfast but it is non-halal cuisine so we just take bread and boiled eggs. Location is good. Near to many tour agent for daily trip... More

This was by far the worst hotel we stayed in in our 4 weeks in Vietnam. On arrival, they had the wrong room, then moved us into another room, still wrong. We booked for twin beds, and got a double with a fold out. The fold out was unusable. Their own website states bottled water, was none. The breakfast was... More

In comparison to the other hotels we stayed at in Vietnam, Lele was easily one of the worst in terms of value for money. The room was actually just a small little box which felt very claustrophobic and unpleasant. The bathroom however, wasn't bad. We could have handled having a subpar room if the staff had been ok, but unfortunately... More
