The third of three hotels on our Vietnam trip and you couldn't have asked for a better location right in the middle of district 1 just around the corner from the Ben thanh market. The staff were all incredibly friendly and keen to make your stay enjoyable. i've read a few reviews which criticise the choices for breakfast. I am amazed, what do they want? Whilst I was there there was fresh bread, toast, 4 types of cereal, 4 types of fresh fruit, bacon, egg, sausages, fried rice, noodles, congee, some sort of beef stew, yoghurt, salad, ham and cheeses. I would have thought that anyone could make a breakfast from that lot.
The room was the smallest we had been in (905) on the top floor. The bed was pushed against the wall and it was the only hotel we had stayed in which didn't have a balcony so felt a bit more claustraphobic. The room was at the back of the hotel and looked down on peoples flats and had a real inner city feel. The bathroom however was the best that we had had, very modern and the shower was awesome.
The only disappointment was on our last day. Checkout was at 12 but we weren't flying out until 1am. It was my birthday and we were going out for a posh meal before we flew (see 3 gourmands review- awesome), I asked if there was any way we could get a room to shower in before we left and was told no problem. Imagine my shock to be shown to a toilet on the top floor next to the gym with a shower head hanging on the wall. getting dressed in a corridor was not how I expected to be getting ready for a big night out. We would happily have paid for extra cleaning to be able to use a proper room with hairdryer, mirrors etc but perhaps I should have made myself clearer.
