Our experience began when we booked with a sister hotel that was full - I received a number of friendly and quick emails suggesting we stay at Saigon Europe - they were so nice that we were off to a good start already - they obviously cared about our business.
From reading the reviews you will see it's in the main tourist area - our room was at the back of the hotel so we heard nothing of that. And being in the busy part of Saigon is part of the fun of the trip isn't it?
The room was clean. There were two large beds and plenty of additional space. Everything worked as it should - it was well maintained. The breakfast selection gets lots of comments - eggs any way you want them, toast, cornflakes, three types of fresh fruit, toasted sandwich. It was perfectly adequate - we had the choice to go across the road but weren't really tempted.
The other big plus of this place is the staff. They are obviously being schooled in being helpful, friendly and just downright nice. They booked tours, gave advice, smiled and chatted - as friendly as any hotel staff anywhere. I have seen other reviews from people suggesting otherwise - we engaged the staff in discussion and never had any problem or cause for confusion with any of them.
The building is small - but look around - they're all small in Saigon! Would I go back and stay again - absolutely. Would I recommend it to you? Absolutely.
