“Cheating”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

I booked a room but when we arrived an arrogant receptiongirl said that they were full and that we checked in late (it was 15.30 ...). Then they moved us to another hotel - Tan Hai Long 4 - in a small smelly room with no windows. Our booked room at Cherry Hotel was with a view to Saigon - the opera house. So they cheated us for about 25 USD which is the difference between the 2 rooms. I will ask my bank to stop the payment ...

We booked 2 nights at this hotel with Booking.com and when we arrived - late in the evening just arriving from Cambodia by flight - the guy at the frontdesk told us they never received our booking from Booking.com....and that they were full....he then asked me to see my booking confirmation so I showed him by opening my emails and the only thing that he wanted to see was the price I have booked at with Booking.com. Once he got this information, he gave a call and get back to us and said we can get a room for the same price at an hotel (King Hotel)almost next door..at that point we just wanted to get a place so we accepted.
Once at the King Hotel, we realized that the rates at this hotel were less then at the Cherry but that we were going to be charged based on Cherry's rates. We argu about the point and they didnt want to adjust. As we felt they were not honest we did not want to leave them our passeports and in order to keep it we needed to paip upfront for the room. So when I gave them my credit card to pay, mysteriously it's was not possible to pay them by credit card since my booking (the one that supposely nobody received) was made with the Cherry; I need to pay the Cherry Hotel even if I was staying at the King Hotel. But if I wanted to pay in cash, so then it was fine to pay at the King Hotel !!! At that point, it was clear to us that this was a combine to overcharge us and we were very upset.
The Cherry Hotel as well as the King Hotel to me are really really not honest and I would definitively not recommand any of them.

Small centrally located hotel. Nice and quite big rooms, very clean and with more ameneties than expected at the price. Minibar, daily shift of towels and all kind of soaps, shampoos etc. are available in the bathroom. Very friendly staff. Quite fast WiFi available all over the hotel. The breakfast is not exceptional, but you can order omelettes and eggs.

Cherry hotel is ideally located in district 1,its just a small hotel but staff are friendly and helpful,room was clean (premium deluxe) and even had a view of the bitexco building. Good places to eat just outside everything from "skewers"(med food),pizza hut and even a coffee bean at end of the road. Good price clean and useful location
