Eventhough we are living in HCMC, we stayed at the hotel for 1 night.
I had booked this hotel as a surprise for my bf and we were really looking forward to a romantic and nice weekend. Nothing else then good food, sun and relaxation.
We arrived with high expectations but I have experienced better stays in far lower priced hotels within Asia and far better food in HCMC.
The rooms are cute french style, with big wooden beds but very, very small and our room was very dark (pool view room 170 USD per night).
There were constructions around the hotel and lying on the pool was everything but relaxing. And that was actually why we stayed there: to escape the city noise.
We had dinner at the restaurant outside on the river. At this evening a big group of 20 people had their Xmas dinner there. Maybe that's why the staff was overwhelmed by too many guests. They didn't bring our starters, they brought wrong food, the salmon Carpaccio was warm.
I had a pizza which was below average.
The restaurant toilets? ... I couldn't even close the door!
I was very disappointed.
The breakfast the next morning was to be honest: a joke.
You can choose from around 5 breakfast options on the menue.
I had yogurt with fruits. Well, not much can go wrong with that.
My boyfriend had the egg Benedict which was nothing else but boring and tasteless and with this kind of processed ham which you can buy here in Coopmart.
The bread basket was tiny with 4 small pieces of bread and the worse: the baguette came frozen inside and we had to ask the staff many times to bring us new ones.
Especially with having great sources like Annam supermarket and Voelker bakery so close by, how can the food be so bad?! I'm wondering.
I don't know...maybe it was just bad luck and the whole weekend wasn't "our" weekend but we left very, very disappointed.
Looking back, I wouldn't go there again.
The pool view room (a tiny window towards the pool) was 170 USD per night (via agoda) and for that money you can also book a flight for 2 people to a nicer destination.
