Location: In district 1 and centrally located, about 5 minutes from Ben Thanh market. Most main attractions are within walking distance. There are many places to eat nearby. Pham Ngu Lao (backpacker area) is just a short walk to the right.
Room: We chose Tulips because of its large family suite (see picture on hotel website). On the 7th floor, served by a small elevator. We stayed 4 days in the family suite. It has 1 queen and 2 single beds. The room was huge indeed and easily enough space for our family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers. It has a large window facing the main road and a small side window. It had all that we needed - big bathroom, bar fridge, safe deposit box and good wifi. Air-conditioning was fine although took some time to cool when we arrived at noon on the first day. The bathroom had some minor issues eg. sink tap spray is not good so you may get sprayed if you're not careful, tub bath shower holder doesn't point in the correct direction so you have to hold it whilst showering but these were just minor irritations. The room was clean and comfortable. Bedding was excellent. It was however a bit dark for reading even with the lights on. The family room faces the main road but being on the 7th floor it wasn't too noisy during the day and was quiet after midnight until 6am. Great value at US$53 (booked through Agoda) for 4 persons inclusive of breakfast.
Breakfast: limited but tasty food. Choice of pho, fried rice or continental breakfast and one drink (juice, tea or coffee). The Vietnamese Pho is good. For those who want milk or other options, you can easily buy from the convenience store next door while waiting for the breakfast to be served.
Service: Staff were helpful. Room tidied daily. We booked Mekong tour to My Tho and Ben Tre through the hotel. Price was reasonable and the tour fairly well run albeit a bit too commercial (too many stops for shopping).
Only areas that could be improved: Room lighting and toilet maintenance.
Room Tip: Families with 4-5 persons should definitely ask for the family suite. Only 1 family suite...
