We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights at the beginning of our trip. It was lovely and a fantastic start to such a great trip. The area isnt the best but with cheap taxis and shuttles you barely notice it. The reception and dining staff are great, the spa reception staff could be improved slightly but were still good.
I believe this hotel is used alot for business travel in particular by the japaense, but its a great all rounder.
The breakfast buffet is very good just dont be put off by one of the grumpy looking chefs doing the eggs :). The only disappointment I had was to a man lighting up a cigarette near our table and not being asked to put it out. We had room service alot too and this was very good (and affordable) too.
We used the Spa quite a few times for massages and this was also very good and affordable.
The only negative was that I was hoping it would be a little cheaper to stay in 5 star in HCMC as I could easily stay here for a week or so, but it just works out to pricey.
I really loved Saigon and will happily go there again and stay at the Equatorial.
