Hotel Equatorial Ho Chi Minh City
Ranked #27 of 475 Hotels in Ho Chi Minh City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for 3 nights, breakfast included was great but all other exclusions were very expensive especially the coffee.
Room was fine, no issues there. We had Internet and transfers included which was a great deal.
Check in was quick and we got into a room at 9am as our flight arrived early and our room was ready.
Hotel is further away from most things but a taxi ride is very inexpensive.
We didn't feel unsafe at night, as long as you take precautions and be alert you'll be fine. We ate at local restaurants without any issues.

This was a comfortable stay in a hotel which is in somewhat away from the mainstream. We found the immediate area a bit intimidating at night. The hotel facilities were fine and the meals, particulartly breakfast in the restaurant were excellent. Our room overlooked a dilapidated part of the town which was the only downside to an otherwise pleasurable experience.
Take care when visiting the restaurant for the buffet dinner. If you inadvertently opt for the Chit Chat seafood dinner which includes lobster you will find that it is a lot more expensive than you imagined so my advice would be to ask the price first. We didn't ask the price and this turned out to be the most expensive meal of our 16 day trip.

We had a five day break in HCMC in November 2013 and it was our first visit to Vietnam. We chose the limousine service from the airport and after what can only be described as hell collecting our visas at the airport the holiday started the moment we settled into the car. Iced, towels, water and a very friendly driver ferried us to the hotel. The Equatorial is a really good place to stay and I could not praise the staff enough. The welcome was warm and friendly and the room we had on the 5th floor was exactly what we wished for. The hotel is a credit to the General Manager and staff. Next visit to Saigon? The Equatorial without any doubt.

This hotel was about 20 mins from airport, but a short walk around to the shopping areas but bit scary at night, Rooms were fantastic, big and clean. Restraunt food was good as was buffet breakfast. Pool area was very slippery, but a decent pool with swim up bar! Staff were friendly and helpful. Would stay again, and would recommend to others wanting to stay away from the main district.

A really excellent hotel not far from District 1. Check out the specials as you can sometimes get this 5 Star hotel at the price of a 3 Star. Very plush rooms, excellently appointed, good gym facilities, great staff and excellent buffet breakfast.

And all only 15 or 20 minutes far from the airport.
