“Compact, modern and well-kept rooms directly across from Ben Thanh markets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2009

Entering into the Lavender Hotel from the busy street, I felt ushered into a modern yet elegant boutique hotel. The room we stayed in was quite compact, but had all the usual mod-cons, with a nice touch of a complimentary fresh coconut on arrival! (Different to the typical fruit baskets in other hotels) A very decent buffet breakfast was included in its top floor restaurant, which offered excellent views of the hotel's surrounds.
Not all the staff at reception spoke fluent English, but were professional and accommodating, and we usually managed to get our message across the first time. What we found amusing was a list in our room which detailed the price of every single piece of furniture / decor, down to the "branch of lavender" (USD$1) if we were so inclined to purchase or perhaps break the item. (These "lists" was a practice we found common in other hotels we stayed at later in Vietnam.) Tasteful modern art decorated the room. The bed was rather firm, but clean and comfortable. The room was surprisingly quiet, considering its placement opposite the famous Ben Thanh markets.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2009

Overall, a really good hotel to stay at. The location is unbeatable, 1 block from the market. The hotel was very accomodating with storing our luggage when we went to Cambodia for 3 nights and when our flight left late in the day. The breakfast buffet was average, but enough choices to satisfy most.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2009

The hotel is opposite the markets which makes it easy for shopping. We had a deluxe room which was very spacious, a king size bed and the air con was very good. The breakfast was quite good. The hotel is quite new and therefore was in very good condition. The staff were very helpful and friendly and I recommend this hotel. One word of advice - some of the standard rooms do not have windows and are quite small but our deluxe room was fine.
