Having read a number of reviews before going we were very pleasantly surprised with this very good hotel. It is certainly worthwhile to spend the relatively little extra for a room on the club floor. The benefits that come with that are excellent (the complimentary drinks and food nightly, the discounts to hotel facilities and free wifi in room to mention some) as well as a very comfortable room with lovely high ceilings. The staff are invariably pleasant and helpful and the general facilities are excellent. It is not in District 1 but that is not a problem. There is a shuttle bus to and from the centre of District 1, that stops at many of the major attractions, however a taxi to or from District 1, including tip, is a very reasonable $A 5.00. The surrounding area to the hotel does not have the upmarket stores etc. however is teeming with restaurants and shops that are much more indicative of how the Vietnamese people live. It is fascinating to walk around that area. We also had an excellent meal at the Orientica restaurant in the hotel one night. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.
