Stayed here for 2 nights in August with my brother-in-law. The location was quite good towards the centre of town. The rooms were clean and modern but not of a 5 star standard.
When you check in you are given a hard sale to pay lots more money for a room and service on their club floor. We decided not to do so. Basically, I get the feeling that if you pay for that upgrade you get the real 5 star service, otherwise it is 4 star. There is no free wi fi available which is very poor considering the vast majority of hotels in the country provide this, from 3 star to 5 star establishments.
I would not stay here if visiting Ho Chi Minh again and would rather stay at a real 5 star.
