Great location, about 3 mins walk to Ben Thanh Market - a place for souvenirs, coffee, etc. The hotel is about 20 mins ride from the International airport. You can approach the counter to arrange for airport taxi to the hotel which cost a flat fee of USD10. Do negotiate the taxi price before proceeding. Booked the hotel via Agoda for the deluxe room. But the hotel staff upgraded us to the Suite room located at Room 103. The hotel staff are friendly and service is excellent. The room was spacious with windows and had a bathtub for bathing. Clean toilets especially, the only thing is the walls are not sound proof, other than that, the hotel is really a good one to consider.
The hotel has also arranged local day tours to both Cu Chi Tunnels & Mekong Delta (floating market). The price for the half day Cu Chi Tunnels are at USD11 inclusive of english speaking tour guide, return bus pickup trip from hotel to Cu Chi and vice versa. It excludes the entrance fee of the Cu Chi Tunnels which cost 80,000 VND per pax. Great experience to the Cu Chi Tunnels. As for the 1 day Mekong Delta (floating market), it cost USD19 which includes small lunch, return bus pickup trip from hotel to Mekong Delta and vice versa, english speaking tour guide. There are no other extra costs, except if you would like to order a la carte dishes during lunch time. Other than that, the trip was a great one!
One thing that is commendable about the hotel staff is they are really efficient in getting a taxi for you and opening the doors of the hotel. I enjoyed my stay in HHL 2 and will definitely consider staying in the same hotel if I were to re-visit HCMC again.
