This from a hotel point of view is quite ok with quite ok front office (wish the check in and check out could be more faster). Rooms are big and clean. Free WIFI and a good size pool on 4th floor. Breakfast buffet was ok. Good price too. Banquet facility was good and food served in the restaurants was really...

We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a Club Room which was beautiful and had all the amenities you could ask for. The staff at the hotel particularly Concierge were exceptionally helpful and the position of the hotel although a little out of town enabled us to see how the real Vietnamese lived and worked in the surrounding streets....

Have to say the hotel was better than first expected - staff was really good, food for breakfast and dinner was excellent with a range that will even keep my fussy son happy and that's saying something - hotel overall is excellent and in some ways you could say the rooms are a little out dated but considering the cost...

Awesome service, nothing a hassle, great rooms, serviced multiple times a day. Nice food and banquet breakfast. Location a little away from centre of town but still a close taxi ride, concierge service awesome.

We recently stayed 2 nights as part of a Luxury Escapes package and the hotel was great - very nice corner room with a balcony which was an upgrade to a Club Floor room. That meant the usual pre-dinner drinks and snacks as well as a very pleasant breakfast. The staff on the Club Floor as well as those throughout...

Hotel is not 5-star but is quite good. Stayed at Sofitel in Cambodia so we are a bit picky. Went to happy hour in the Bar and were promptly told it only applies to alcoholic drinks. As my health doesn't allow me to drink alcohol due to a misspent youth I find this a bit discriminatory. Staff all tried very...

We stayed at the Equatorial for 6 days. They offer a free shuttle bus to all the main attractions, but a taxi is also readily available. What makes the Equatorial is the excellent staff, special mention to Paul, duty manager, and Tony, restaurant manager. All the staff are extremely helpful. We ate at both the chitchat and the orientique restaurants,...
