We had three nights here at the start of a holiday. The standard room is a little cluttered, but the bathroom is spacious with a separate bath and shower stall. Good bathroom amenities. The bedding was marginally too hot - the dreaded duvet in conjunction with aircon that only goes cool, not cold.The all day cafe in the hotel was good, although expensive (as you would expect). Limited choices for vegetarians, but that was our experience at every hotel and restaurant in Vietnam. We used the gym each day, which has a reasonable number of treadmills, exercycles etc and a good selection of weightlifting machines. It looks onto a medium sized pool, which has one glass side facing the gym. The pool is not for the self conscious ! There is a small "mall" next door, which contains 5 or 6 restaurants and a small deli where you can buy snacks, water etc. There is an ANZ ATM round the corner of the mall too. We found we could easily walk all round district 1 from this hotel, and it is only a five minute stroll to a number of restaurants. Notre Dame and the Eiffel designed GPO are a couple of minutes away. Our only irritation was the cost of wifi. It is free in the lobby areas, but not in the rooms. What a pain. Our travel agent phoned to say she had sent us a flight change. We went down to the lobby, logged in and downloaded it. Nobody at the concierge desk would print it for us - we were sent up to the business centre. I had to log on to their wifi and send it to the BC receptionist to get it printed. By contrast, just about every cafe we went to throughout Vietnam had free wifi.....
