The room is spacious. The furniture is old but still ok. Some stains in the carpet. We eat at the buffet restaurant of... More

We stayed at this hotel as my family and I needed somewhere to stay after flying into Ho Chi Minh late one night before flying off to Danang the next morning. The room was of a high standard (in the new wing) and the price was very good, considering there were two adults and two small children in that room.... More

Our suite was top class and the staff made us feel very welcome. They had very good English which helped us with minimal Vietnamese. They helped us with their language.The restaurant for breakfasts covered all types of food.

The driver from the hotel waited for us even though we were over an hour late and did not arrive until about 11:30. Obviously we were grateful. The room was nice and clean and the staff accommodating.

Due to a lie flight and missed connection, Vietnam Airlines put me up in this hotel. It is expensive (1,200,000 per night) and the rooms are disgusting. I have stayed in rooms in much cheaper hotels that are far better. Was charged an extra 600,000vnd for an extra person as my partner was meeting me in HCM. The airline did... More
