Lots of chandeliers and marble and very friendly staff.
Apart from the fact that the room was a little cramped (with twin beds and a chair beside the bed it made it a little tight), everything was to our satisfaction.
The a/c worked well and was reasonably quiet, the bed was comfortable (particularly so for an Asian hotel), the bathroom was well laid out with a full bathtub and separate shower recess, and the water was hot.
My small laptop fitted into the in-room safe, and the wi-fi connection worked well (and was free).
The rooftop bar overlooking the Saigon River has a nice ambiance (around AU$10 for a beer and a Bacardi & Coke), but … we found it depended to a large degree on the music group that is playing when you visit – 3 nights, 3 different groups – one was great, the other 2 were ok.
The pool area was small but good, and the buffet breakfast (with egg/omelette station) offered everything we required.
Reasonably centrally located and it would be our first choice should we return to HCMC.
PS – The little mini-market across the road is good if you want to buy small snacks or a few cans of beer/coke etc to drink in your hotel room. Also, the noodle shop “Saigon Corner” just a few doors down from the mini-mart is good for a cheap feed.
