“Great choice for a central base in HCMC”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Pros: all rooms and public areas fresh, modern and clean; great rooftop swimming pool and gym area; amazingly central location; super-helpful staff; decent buffet breakfast.

(Minor) Cons: it's a modern 'business'/tourist hotel, so if you're after something very traditional/local it's probably not the place for you; some people (and the Lonely Planet) note that it can be a little noisy as a result of its central location - possibly an issue if you are a very light sleeper, although neither of the rooms we stayed in (including a 1st floor street view room) really felt very noisy at all....

Summary: a great choice for a clean, friendly, central hotel while staying in HCMC; on our second visit, the reception staff were kind enough to let us check in at 10am and upgrade us to a suite for free - really made a big difference after our early morning flight, and typical of how the staff generally went out of their way to be helpful to us during our stay. Would recommend this place.

Local tip - the street restaurant that sets up along the side of the market round the corner (out the hotel door, turn right, and right again at the first corner then 50 yards up on your left) is well worth visiting. It doesn't look like all that much, but was so good we had to go there twice during our stay - really fresh, tasty, authentic food - some of the best meals we had in Vietnam (and that's saying something!).

Absolutely great hotel. Attentive staff, quality furnishings, central location, delicious breakfast...cannot fault it.
However, we decided to book in for a massage in the Spa. My wife enjoyed it, although the masseuse' outfit was a little unusual; short pink mini skirt and sparkly stilettos, but hey, we're in Vietnam!
I, however, found it more than a little disconcerting to be offered "extras" after my massage. I may have expected this in a less quality hotel, but was surprised when they're running such a class hotel, and the Spa is widely advertised.
Beware, unless you know what's on offer, you may be safer booking in for the manicure!

Room Tip: Avoid the Spa... Unless of course, you're looking for that sort of thing

Maybe it was the slow service at the front desk or maybe it was the BORING restaurant recommendation from the concierge (Lemongrass - don't go there), but I was less than thrilled with this hotel. We supposedly had upgraded rooms (7116, 8116), but the allocation of space in these rooms left a lot to be desired, as a third of the room was taken up with an impractical desk and pillar, which rendered much of the space unusable. Some people could say that the selection at the breakfast buffet was large. I thought it was uninspired and the service to get coffee or tea was dreadfully slow. For all the hoopla this hotel gets, I was disappointed.

I have been travelling around asia for the past 4 months and this is the best hotel i have stayed at it's 4 star rated but i would give it 5 stars. The location you can look down on ben thanh market it's that close. The breakfast is really good the staff so polite and helpfull. I have been trying to think of something i'm not happy with but i cant.

ideally placed very clean and modern. Breakfast fine but lacking in healthy choices (eg. no decaf coffee no museli). Room bland and felt quite poky-overlooked a brick wall and had noise from the street and live band below (finished at 9.30 but if you've got young kids ask for a high floor). Beds comfortable and good shower. Bistro food absolutely dreadful-go for a drink then turn right and five minutes walk will bring you to the delightful Barbeque Garden to eat.
Pool area would be helped by putting some loungers on the shady side too, and despite the high wall it is a great place to chat over a sundowner.

Room Tip: the higher the better and not overlooking the Bistro bar

Stayed there for 4 nights. Room very comfortable and quiet as it was facing the courtyard. Breakfast buffet outstanding...the Vietnamese soup is a must. Great dining room for dinner. Yes the pool is small but hey you are downtown HCMC on a rooftop. Make the best of it.

Room Tip: Ask for room on courtyard.
