After a rough trip on the Mekong Delta, we felt a little embarrassed walking into the Residences in our bedraggled state. The front desk staff could not have been kinder to us, however, and upgraded us to a three-bedroom suite in honor of our wedding anniversary. When we opened the door to our suite, our mouths hit the floor. It was absolutely stunning. We walked into a huge kitchen, complete with dishes, utensils, and even a rice maker. The dining room table sat at least six people, and the living room was massive with a huge TV. A large balcony was located right off the living room area. It was absolutely wonderful to relax on the couches after a long week of travel.
The two "smaller" bedrooms were large in size, and at least one contained a desk that would be perfect if you need to conduct work on your vacation. They also contained ample closet space. There was a large bathroom in the hallway that contained a shower as well. The master bedroom was superb, with a luxurious bed and ample views of Ho Chi Minh City. The master bathroom contained two sinks, and a large separate bathtub and shower. The toilet made a funny "ding ding" sound every time someone sat down, which made us giggle the whole trip. Additionally, the Wi-Fi strength was great, and it was even strong enough to handle FaceTime calls.
One added benefit to staying at the Residences = a washing machine! After traveling for more than a week, it was wonderful to wash some clothes and not have to pay exorbitant costs for laundry. The laundry room closet contained a drying rack and a packet of detergent.
The concierge was amazing. From sending us a complimentary anniversary cake to securing us tickets to the water puppet theatre, we were blown away by the exemplary service. The Residences are within walking distance to the war museum and the water puppet theater, along with other key sites. Additionally, the Residences are connected to a small mall area that contains a posh convenience store and a variety of upscale chain restaurants.
If we could move into the Residences permanently, we would do it in heartbeat. We absolutely loved our stay here.
