I stayed at a deluxe room at the Kingston Hotel in Saigon, in June 2011. The location was good, the hotel very ordinary. The room I stayed was a drab interior, and I found that all the rooms had Panasonic television -- the bulky ones from the 1990s instead of the flat screen TVs that most hotels now have. There were a lot of tourists from Indonesia,
Philippines, staying in June 2011 when I was there. I wondered why the hotel was full -- I suppose it had contracts with booking agencies. The tour groups make the small hotel very messy and crowded during breakfast time. Luckily for that full occupancy, I moved to another hotel after two nights and found a better one -- not so crowded, not so dull. The breakfast at the Kingston hotel needed a lot of improvement. The service staff lacked motivation and enthusiasm. If your travel agent booked you this hotel, stay one or two nights, then move to other hotels on the same street (there are about 12 hotels next door & opposite!) to enjoy either better price or better rooms.
