By very good location, I mean that it is close to restaurants and everything you might want to see in District 1 without actually being in District 1. The first time I was in HCMC, this hotel was just opening and I scored one of the biggest rooms facing the street for an extremely good price. I understand that the smaller rooms are not nearly so nice but even at twice the price the same room is still not a bad deal. It's very comfortable with a huge bathroom by Vietnamese standards.
Sometimes they offer a good buffet breakfast though the buffet is discontinued when there are not enough guests. I recall the doormen being very helpful and polite and despite being on a fairly busy street, noise was not a problem.
