Good hotel, clean rooms, good service. The location is in the best district in Ho Chi Minh with the view on the opera. It has a nice swimming pool at the 7th floor. everytime i went to this hotel the staff was very friendly. Walking distance from almost all major things to do in Ho Chi Minh.

One of the city's most iconic hotels and probably the most centrally located right opposite the Opera House. On arrival the lobby was closed for refurbishment but upon leaving was partially opened and looks very plush ! (to be completed by end of October I was told). Everything in the hotel went clockwork for us - the excellent signature lounge,...

This is a lovely hotel. There was a bit of inconvenience with the renovations of the reception area but apart from that everything was fantastic. The rooms were roomy, the breakfast excellent and the roof top bar is one of the iconic places in the city. All in all the perfect start for a holiday in Vietnam.
