We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a Luxury Escapes package. This hotel was lovely and we enjoyed our stay here, short as it was. Pick up by a private driver was faultless and took about 45 mins in heavy traffic to arrive at the hotel. The pool area is great and we had no trouble getting lunch...

Ho Chi Minh City is full of places to stay but if you want a truly international quality experience then I recommend the Hotel Equatorial. We upgraded our room which was inexpensive but really worthwhile because it gave us more space plus a small balcony which was terrific for seeing the lights at night.

We stayed here as part of a Luxury Escape package. Mixed opinion on this place. We are perhaps a biased though having come from an awesome swish resort that was most certainly every bit a five star place. We felt like staff were a little unfriendly - we have been told that's not usual compared to people further north in...
