Good value for money. The 2-room suite was big, clean and well maintained. Staff were helpful and polite. Free bus service to Ben Than market was a plus point.

My family of 10 spent Xmas at the Sherwood. We booked 3 two bedroom units, but my sister and I was upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartment. We were made to feel at home from the moment we step out of the taxi. Check in was fast and simple, we were taken to our room by one of the ladies from reception. She explain the very efficient lift system, and secure entry to the lifts from the front to the back entrance (to the pool, pass the pool the gate to the back entrance).

The apartment was very clean, and decor modern and fresh. The master bedroom has an ensuite, both the main and ensuite had ready the right number of toothbrushes, shampoo and soap etc . There was a few issues of clogged pipes, which were rectified very efficiently. There is a safe provided in the walk in robe of the master bedroom. The views from our room was of the city and roof tops of other buildings. Great for watching the endless activities of the locals, and a city that seems to endlessly in a state of development.

The lounge/ dining very spacious, great for entertaining visitors, and the TV had enough English chanels to entertain the kids. The kitchen was huge, with large fridge, washing/dryer (no dishwasher). The kitchen door opens to an out side balcony (where you can also hang up your clothes to dry), with separate toilet and shower and small room (maids room??). The kitchen is fully equipped with toaster, plate, glasses etc..except detergent and washing liquid was not provided. This was not a problem for us, as there was a supermarket right directly behind the hotel, across the road via the back entrance at the pool level.

The gym was sufficient for me, since I only use the treadmill and some free weights. The gym faces the pool, at night when lit up is quite pretty. We had a lovely the barbecue dinner on Xmas day here. The kids loved the pool, especially after 2pm you get served a variety of ice creams, caramel popcorn, fruits and ice tea. The rooms included buffet breakfast, consisted of English breakfast, selection of fruit, cereals coffee and teas and rice noodle soups and congee/rice porridge.

There is a business center on the same level as the games room. You can borrow Wii and PS3 games from the business center. There is putt golf, a yoga room and snooker.

Sherwood is pretty much walking distance to alot of the attractions like The Cathedral, The Post and the Reunification Palace etc..

Check out was fast and simple, we were sad we had to leave.

Room Tip: If you can spare the extra dollars, upgrade to a three bedroom. It makes a big different when you ar...

Thank you very much for taking the time to post your review on Trip Advisor.

One of the greatest compliments and achievements for us is, when our guests say that they felt like "home away from home" - for us it means that there were no open wishes and comfort as well as friendliness and peace accompanied your stay with us at Sherwood Residence.

We were recommended by a friend and we were very pleased with our choice. Security and hygiene were what we wanted when travelled with our two kids and Sherwood Residence really impressed us. Everything was pretty much as described on the website. We loved the high ceilings and all the facilities provided. Although we would like a mini stereo system beside the LCD TV either in the lounge room or in the main bedroom. We found the rooms are surprisingly quiet and no problem to stretch that sleep after a late night. It is a family friendly short and long term service apartment so do expect to see kids roaming around the corridor every now and then. Our 12 and 10 year-old loved the pool and they already planned to come back because they missed out the poolside barbecue on this occasion.

We found all our needs were met in a timely manner. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful, they made our trip a pleasant and memorable one. There were smiles everywhere. We loved the atmosphere. It’s home away from home. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that we crossed paths with, from the Front Desk to the Business Centre, from the Restaurant, Housekeeping, IT Department, Security Department to the Bellboys, you guys are fantastic, keep up the good work and keep smiling.

We initially booked for 5 nights when we first arrived in town but we ended up returning to Sherwood Residence every time we checked back into HCMC. We liked it so much that we stayed a total of 17 nights at this apartment. For us, It was money well spent.

We found Sherwood on Expedia and chose it because of our family size (two kids), we couldn't be happier with our choice.

With similar price we would pay for a 4/5-star hotel room, we got a two-bedroom executive suite, complete with a kitchen, washer/dryer, a very big dining/living room, and a study that was easily converted into a 3rd bedroom. the facilities were excellent as well - an indoor/outdoor swimming pool, a small but well equipped gym, a business centre and a club house with all sorts of activities to keep the kids occupied.

Services in Viet Nam in general can be a bit of of hit and miss, but the staff at Sherwood was exceptional, from the general upkeep to little details like a cold towel after a workout, the attention to details is every bit as good as what you would expect, say, in Singapore.

The residence is located at the centre of everything in district 3. The popular war remnant museum and independence palace are nearby, many restaurants are within walking distance. We really enjoyed two of them - One right next to the residence's back entrance, their Banh Xeo food was very good. the other a bit up Pasteur street (I believe at 160 Pasteur), an apparent popular local hangout with all sorts of Vietnamese food to choose from.

Hope this helps.

I stayed here 3 nights with my wife, baby and parents in December 2011. We had a spacious 3 bedroom apartment, which perfectly fulfilled our requirements. There is a kitchen, with sufficient cooking facilities (for baby foods, snacks), and a washer and dryer. The living area has a dining table, sofa, and a television, and was perfect for the extended family to spend time together. The master bedroom is in the end of the corridor, and has an ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds, and the third bedroom one bed that is sufficient for 2 to sleep in but not any wider (narrower than a U.S. queen bed, and probably about 140 cm wide, which may not be sufficient for two larger-than-average adults.) The second bathroom is directly opposite the third bedroom.
If you brought your maid with you, there is also a small unfurnished maid's room with a separate bathroom and a small room for drying the laundry (if you decide not to use the dryer.)
The rooms were very clean, and the decoration of the rooms is OK, but not close to the luxury level.
The buffet breakfast (included in our rate, which was about $150 per night) was very good, with warm and cold dishes, fruit, joghurt, basic cereals, and pastry.
There is a courtyard with swimming pools, a children rooms with a lot of toys, and table tennis and other game facilities on the 2nd floor close to the restaurant.
About 30 meters from the hotel (through the swimming pool gate) is a large Co-Op supermarket, with everything you might need during your stay.
Otherwise the location of the hotel is central. The War Remnants Museum is one block away, the Independence Palace about 3 blocks away, and the rest of the center is a 10 to 15 minute walk away. There is a free shuttle taking the residents to the center and some of the shopping malls outside the center, if you decide not to use a taxi.

Our family of four have just stayed at the Sherwood residence. We all loved this place and coud not have asked for a better location in Ho Chi Min. Everything we wanted to see in the city was in walking distance and it was surprisingly quiet - helped by the double glazing on the windows. We all swam in the pool which is lovely and my son, husband and I all played pool in the club room as well.

The breakfast was pretty standard for Vietnam and we ate a nice lunch there a couple of times. The only thing to watch out for is the tours. They are pretty expensive if organized through the hotel. You can definitely get it cheaper if you look around. We went through a tour office at the post office for our private Chi Chi tunnel tour.

Never the less, we would definately stay at the Sherwood again. It was great to stay together as a family and the ability to wash our own clothes was a bonus.

Hi, I just returned from a 4N stay with 3 adults & 2 kids (aged 9 & 11) in a 143 sqm room with 3 bedrms. Service was excellent from everyone from drivers to backroom reservation staff. Rooms were spacious, clean, and fully functional (with dryers, kettles etc). Loved the facilities (didn't used the pool, sauna, gym but had a great time with my kids (and my mom!) on table-tennis, indoor golf putting, billiards, PS3 gaming). Location in District 3 but the hourly shuttle service were avail to key shopping areas. Taxis were also abundant and cheap. Supermkt at the back and nearby hair salons was also wonderfully convenient. Shout out to the inhouse restaurant - didn't expect it but had a great meal there!
