Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam141 contributions34 helpful votes
I would thoroughly recommend this hotel for a staycation or for out of town guests. I had previously only been here for a meal and thought it was fantastic then. Staying here for Christmas surpassed my expectations. The room was brilliant, the room decor was tasteful, the bed and pillows so so comfortable, the shower was super hot and bathroom facilities and amenities were excellent. Staff service was best I have had in HCMC. All staff were courteous and exceptionally professional. Checking and checking out was a breeze. Christmas lunch was simply wonderful.

Hotel's Favorite
On my trip through Southeast Asia, this was by far the best hotel that I stayed at. The breakfast was a multi course buffet with great vegetarian options. There was a whole table on the side of the buffet for breads and pastries. The pain au chocolat was my favorite. I got it everywhere and the ones I had here were by far the best. The coffee was fine, but I definitely recommend venturing out into the city to try the local coffee varieties. The amenities were excellent. I came home every day to fresh towels and a pristine room. The towels, robes, and bedding were very plush. If I ever got laundry done it was already hanging up by the time I was home. That is what I call fast service! The toiletry set was great quality, I loved the scent of the hand lotion so much that I ended up taking it with me! The pool (pictured below) was beautiful and elegant, perfect to relax in after a busy day bustling around Ho Chi Minh. Because of the language barrier around the city, I found myself asking the concierge for directions more than I usually do, and they were very pleasant and accommodating. The bar and lobby both provided excellent places to wait around, relax, and chat with friends. I do not find myself often in five star hotels but this one was certainly worth it!

I’m coeliac, and I’ve been searching high and low for a gluten-free Sunday roast in Saigon. Finally I found one, thanks to Chef Donald at the Equatorial, who very kindly made me my very own gluten-free gravy and walked me through the buffet to tell me what I could eat. I also got a plate of specially selected gluten-free desserts. I was overjoyed!!! Everything was delicious and well organised. Such a nice afternoon, I highly recommend it! Many thanks!!

Amazing and beautiful hotel! We all satisfied with the service there! The staff was great. As a Malaysian, we also can have a conservation with the staff. The room was clean and comfortable. It is really worthy, we not only had a rest there but we also can relax and play at their swimming pool at night.

I visited Ho Chi Minh City with a few friends this past year and was not in charge of the hotel reservation, so I had no idea what I was walking into. I was blown away within the first few minutes of seeing this hotel because of how beautiful and luxurious the outside and lobby were. When we walked in we were immediately greeted by staff and felt like welcomed guests. The people at the front desk were very helpful and informative as well. Our room was better than I ever expected. Even though it seemed as if it could fit 4 beds in the room, it was only a double bedroom but with a lot of space which made it feel very comfortable. I also really liked the bathroom attached to our room because of how polished and clean the amenities were. We never experienced any difficulties with the features in our room or with any staff member. My favorite thing about this hotel was the breakfast. Not only does this hotel have a little cafe in the front lobby, but it has a dining room with exceptional food. Being tourists, it was always much appreciated to have a huge selection of delicious food to choose from before a long day of exploring! I definitely recommend booking a stay at Hotel Equatorial if you ever find yourself in Ho Chi Minh City, and if you do, try the breakfast omelets!
