We booked the Lavender through our agent in Aus just to ensure we had somewhere to go to when we arrived on our first trip to Vietnam.
The hotel exceeded our expectations and began with the warm welcome by reception and doorman.
Room was on the small side with a tiny window but bathroom presented nicely. As we were not intending to spend a lot of time in our room, size was not an issue for us.
Location is excellent particularly being situated opposite the market and is a pleasant walk to many of the city sights.
Breakfast is simple but varies each day; includes fruits, pastries, yoghurt, cold meats, hot foods and an egg station.
After being in Saigon for a few days we decided to take a tour to the Mekong but first checked with hotel reception that we could extend our stay and return to the Lavender after the Mekong 3 day tour.
We were pleasantly surprised and grateful for a room upgrade upon our return. Room 601 is a spacious room with 2 windows overlooking the market and city.
I would recommend the Lavender to others and most certainly return.
