I found this hotel to be very good in the rooms. They were clean and well appointed. Not huge, but sufficient. My view was only of a cement building side next door, but at least the traffic noise was not bad that way. My only question when registering would be the status of their construction. They are redoing the entire...

A real nice, small,comfortable, accommodating hotel in District 1 HCMC. Close to everything and a nice restaurant as well. Rooms are smallish but comfortable and air conditioned. Staff is very helpful and I would definitely stay here again on my next visit. Over last 10 years I have probably spent about 25 nights in this hotel--2 thumbs up.

A lovely hotel in a great, central location. The staff were most helpful & the room was good. Although we had breakfast as part of our stay, the street filled up with vendors early in the morning & I got breakfast out there. I highly recommend getting up early to do this as they are usually all gone by 8am.

It always annoys me when hotels give you no warning about major renovations that are under way At present the hotel looks nothing like the website photos. The "lobby" is a small table wedged near the stairs. There is no lift on the ground floor which means carrying bags up several flights of stairs to get the one lift that...

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,...

The Hotel is nice and most of the staff is very friendly. But not everything in the hotel describtion was promised. We had only bad wifi nor no wifi. 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...

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...

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...

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...
