Haivng passed by this hotel several times during my business trips but never had a chance to and finally tried it out myself. First of all, given the hotel's excellent location, was surprised that the crowd was not huge when I was there maybe because of its price which is on the high side for a boutique hotel. Relatively speaking, this hotel can be considered new in Saigon and check in was fast and on entering the room, I was glad I made the choice as the room certianly live up to it's expectation, modern and well kept. Though small, everything was complete and what attracted me was the nice working table which is crucial flor business travellers. Free internet access via LAN cable makes working a breeze. One negative aspect of the room was that the room does not come with a internal lock which means there is no security latch and was a little annoyed when hotel staff entered the room while I was in the bathroom and did not respond to the door bell, an invasion of privacy I felt.
Breakfast was adequate though choices are limited and if you stay for a few nights, it will be a dread but then again for a quick breakfast it is definitely good. There are though plenty of choices for food considering the location the area where the hotel is located.
On the room side, I was given a room with windows but view was horrible so I rather have it blocked by the curtains. Normally for rooms in Saigon, I would prefer one with no windows or if it has good sound proof glass given the heavy traffic there and as the room allocate was at the back of the hotel, it was a peaceful sleep.
