We arrived at around 11pm and were greeted by friendly reception staff with chilled orange juice which was nice. Check in was easy and quick. We were in room 901, which is a corner room with great views out over the city. Lovely big comfy bed with excellent pillows, tv with a good range of English channels. There was a fridge with complimentary bottled water a few mini bar snacks, coffee machine, hair dryer and safe. The shower was powerful and warm and there were nice touches like a sewing kit, toothbrush and paste incase you had forgotten. There was also robes and slippers. The room and the hotel were cleaned to an extremely high standard throughout.
Service at the bar, restaurant and reception desk was excellent.
Breakfast wasn't the best I have ever had, there was a small selection of pastries, with very little fruit however there was a toast machine and you could order omelettes if you wished. There was a large selection of Vietnamese cuisine.
Overall the hotel is in an excellent position in the city, not even a five minute walk from the opera house and numerous good restaurants and clubs, the taxi service outside is fantastic and metered.
The hotel was quiet during our stay and we seemed to be the only English speaking people there, very good hotel and to be honest I think it deserves more than a 3* rating. I would recommend the hotel however if we returned to HCMC we would probably stay somewhere with a better breakfast.
They check your room when you are checking out, so give yourself an extra 5-10 minutes if you are heading to the airport so they can do this.
