I used this hotel a few years ago and then it was just showing its age being decorated in a dark wood paneling style. The rooms were adequate and clean, had all the basic requirements for a great place to sleep and rest between shopping and touring. The rate AUD$35 included a basic breakfast of pastries, scrambled eggs, bacon, noodles,... More

The Air Condition was so noisy and at 7 in the morning building operations started. We talked to the manager and he said the workers will start at 9 next morning....but... More

I have to clarify but this is a very personal review. My situation is a bit complicated. I hold two passports, one of which is Vietnamese but I don't live there, therefore I do not have a local IC. Booked the room for my boyfriend via Agoda under my name with the indication that he would be staying. Occupancy was... More

This hotel is good for solo traveller who spends most of the time out of hotel. Nice room but not spacious enough. There is no view. Staff is very friendly and helpful. If they offer you a breakfast as a part of your room charge, dont depend on this breakfast a lot. They only have 2 juice, white bread and... More

We stayed one night here,expecting a bit of luxury to what we have been staying in around Vietnam.Unfortunately our stay was very disappointing and feel slightly cheated. I purposely booked this hotel as it advertises that it has a fitness centre.When we came to check in, it turns out there is not one,very very annoying. Our room was small and... More

This property is freshly renovated (some minor renos still going on). The room wasn't very big but it was fresh and classy. The only thing we didn't like is that the window could not be opened to air the room out. The Saigon breakfast was tasty, better than the western. The staff was friendly and always smiling. Good location as... More

Check in was a breeze. Located in room 505 I assume its one of the renovated rooms. Rooms are your average size. Queen been with flat screen tv in rooms. Walk in showers, bathroom over looks room, however you can pull down the blind for privacy... Only a couple of minutes walk to the night life... The service at this... More
