This hotel was just right for our stay in Ho Chi Minh City. It is within easy walking distance of the centre, and is in a nice bustling area in its own right.
We had an executive suite, as it worked out cheaper than two normal rooms for us (2 adults 2 kids) and it gave us the advantage of access to the executive lounge (free beers and cakes etc - kids thought they had hit the jackpot!), plus a good view. The only downside was that although the booking was for a family of 4, you actually only get a double bed and a single folding bed, but the double was big enough for our smallest to climb in with us. Suite isn't huge but has a nice layout and feels recently built (ie good finishes).
Breakfasts were great, we had one evening room service in the room, very reasonably priced for a hotel chain. Staff friendly. As other reviewers may have said, the semi-outdoor swimming pool never gets enough sun to heat up, so unusable, at least in Winter when we were there. But then you don't visit Saigon for the swimming pools!
By the way, if you do stay, go to the Mekong River - great!
