Originally booked SenViet hotel, but was transferred to White Lion due to SenViet having renovation works. Stayed in the 8th floor corner suite with one of my travelling friends. Overall the facilities are good, loving the shower and the wide screen TV with a variety of channels. Shower gel and shampoo were provided, however no refills for the duration of our stay. Luckily we brought our own. The A/C worked well in our room, however my other friends were complaining that the A/C in their room does not work. As for any noise from the roads, we can faintly hear motorcycles honking, however it didn't really bother us.
Breakfast was provided. No complaints there because all of us preferred light breakfast. Each morning has slightly varied buffet menu. But the usual would include fried rice and noodle soup.
There are quite a number of restaurants nearby, including a Korean restaurant on the same block and Lotteria(fast food chain) about 3 min walk away. There is also a Chinese restaurant on the opposite side of the hotel that serves really good food. The hotel is located in District 3 however, so it is not near any of the tourist attractions. It cost around 45,000 Dong for a 7-seater taxi to take us to District 1(Ben Thanh Market etc).
The reception staff were quite friendly as well, as we had to ask them for directions on several occassions. They also loaned me a universal adapter as I forgot to bring one.
Overall, a pleasant enough stay.
