The staff were incredibly helpful and gave us lots of great recommendations. The location was central yet the hotel felt remote due to the peaceful ambience. Breakfast was also included and was a nice way to start the day.

We spent four nights here and it was absolutely lovely.
Friendly staff, fabulous breakfast and the rooms were great.
The only tiny thing to note would be that our room window faced a narrow courtyard so we had no natural light to our room. This...More
From the moment that my partner and I arrived at the airport, we were welcomed with friendly staff who provided a car ride to the hotel. From checking in on our first day, to helping us get around within Ho Chi Minh City when needed,...More
This hotel is located 10mins away from District 1, the main hub. I choose this place because of the reviews and it didn't disappoint. Staff are attentive and constantly looking to service you with an airport shuttle, ordering taxis, booking tours and advising on any...More
We were able to arrange airport pickup/drop off, which was a smooth experience. The staff is nice and the location is kind of away from the hustle and bustle but within walking distance to everything. The breakfast was alright, and the americano helped get the...More

The hotel staff will call a taxi for you, Mai Linh & Vina Sun taxis are state controlled so you should have no problem with them but make sure they turn on meter when setting off. A taxi ride to the station should cost approx 5-6 NZ dollars. Not a great area for restaurants, however we tried the local grill restaurant at the end of the street (turn right out of hotel). Mainly locals eating there, it was very cheap and very good. From our experience any hotel in Vietnam will organise tickets/trips etc. at no extra cost. We took a train from Hanoi, the hotel organised for our cases to be taken to the station by motorbike, we travelled by taxi. We were escorted to our allocated seats by the hotel staff, our cases had already been put into the overhead compartment!! Enjoy your trip

We used both Uber and taxi's to get around HCMC. The hotel was great about arranging a taxi to take us to the airport and to give us great restaurant recommendations in walking distance. I don't know about the train.
