A friend living in HCM recommended this newly opened hotel. An extremely nice boutique hotel with an impressive courtyard and entrance. We had a complimentary pick up from the airport by the hotel car which definitely took out the stress of having to try and make your own way there. The hotel was only 10mins away from the airport. Location was great. Just off the main road from the airport to the city centre, the hotel is situated on a nice quaint street. It took us 10mins to get to the city centre as well. We had no issues getting taxis to the hotel and the taxi fare only costs a mere vnd60,000 (under 3usd). Breakfast was complimentary and there was a choice of local or western. The rooms were very comfortable and were comparable to some 5star rooms I have stayed in before. The restaurant had only just opened and the food was good. Staff were eager to please. There is no pool but we were out visiting the sights during the day so that did not mattered. This hotel is great for business travellers as well as those travellers who are looking for a unique place to stay. Great value for money.
